I kind of like the grimlock, and I want to see what's going on with tiny megatron.
Starscream and Megatron decided to participate in "bring your kid to work day".
So there are going to be multiple characters at different size class grades? Not a big fan of that, as I wasn't with Animated, but if there's some level of scale compatibility...I'm getting Shockwave for sure. His spider-tank mode reminds me of the ones from Ghost in the Shell.
Shockwave and Starscream are deluxes, not voyagers.
So, not voyager Shockwave, but we got a fantastic deluxe Shockwave.
Its not replacing it, this is the toyline for the next cartoon
That Shockwave! His alt mode looks like it came straight out of Halo.
As a whole this line isn't really doing it for me which is okay as I'm trying to take a break after POTP & the Bumblebee movie but it looks like I might be picking and choosing. Like Shockwave here, I'll probably end up getting him just so I can have a Shockwave bigger then Legends on my CHUG shelf.
I hope kids like these... they look like the perfect way to get the next generation of fans started!
Might get that Grimlock... need to see some pics of the actual toy first. Loving the bot mode, hope dino mode head isn't fixed in one angle...
Shockwave looks pretty good actually. He\'ll probably be the only figure I get, but Megatron and Grimlock look kinda good. I can tell this line won\'t be for me, but damn, Shockwave looks really, really good.
Also, if we don\'t get a Soundwave from this line, should I get RID Soundwave?
Maybe you should wait for the cartoon to actually come out before throwing a tantrum.
I think the first pic shows all 4 size classes, so that is a different Ultra Class Starscream in the picture. Hopefully it has decent articulation, could be a cool voyager mold without the extra booster bits.
Hmm..personally liking that new Prime design...
I see lines like this and all I think is:
"Great, now we can all fight over each other trying to get Shockwave."
....and he still isn't voyager
>will feature bot designs very reminiscent of the original G1 line.
As far as ME collecting these? I'll have to see them in person to decide if the are less cartoony and would go within my CHUG collection. Shockwave is the one that looks closest to passing there.
You're free to leave the hobby anytime you like, or make up your own stuff. If a total new revamp would sell, they would have done that.
Didn't you do this whole "The sky is falling" "Y U REPLACE MY CHUG?!?!?" "3P ALL TEH WAYZZZZ" stuff when those dollar store toys were shown? It was pretty extreme and offputting then as well. May need to reevaluate collecting if toys for children getting revealed makes you spaz out this much.
I guarantee you as soon as I show these pictures to my 5 year old daughter, she will legitimately squee. She's still far more interested in G1 than she is ANY of the more modern toons, and I try to get her to watch those OVER G1. I think the new cartoon and toyline will be right up her alley.
I'm just thrilled Shockwave is more Animated designed and not a gawdawful I-Dee-Dubya FoC mockery. He has a yellow eye and a decent shaped head, plus the alt mode is pretty sweet.
I only wish he was a Voyager-sized figure so we'd finally have a good representation for Generations, but I'm still quite excited for this Deluxe.
6'1 starscream vs 5'11 megatron in that first picture
Well, will b saving some money for movie and generations lines.
It's NOT replacing Generations. It's supposed to replace NuRiD as a bridge line between Rescue Bots and Generations.
Shockwave and Maybe Grimlock look the best of all of these. The rest look like shit. 30 dollars for an Optimus and Megatron that can\'t pull decent transformations or vehicles. What the shit Hasbro?
I don't know why I like that Optimus design overall, but I hate, hate, HATE that his hands are imprisoned behind the headlights.
