    You may be correct. But from what it looks like kids don’t buy into this anymore, sadly They are all about phones, tablets, mobile games etc. so to me this is just another shelf warmer that ends up in discount stores like Ross and Marshall’s for example, and if not Shelf warmers then they become landfill. Hasbro needs quality toys that will sell and of course make them money. Why do you think places like Toys’R’Us are going out of business, heck even Best Buy’s are downsizing because of mobile gaming and tablets....it’s the thing now a days if ya didnt notice?

    So I have kids, they play with TFs no and then. Here are the biggest complaints between me and them. Price - these are to much money for what they are. Don't start defending Hasbro about cost, these things are hollow, ugly messes and the plastic keeps getting cheaper and little things are breaking, like hinges. The next is modes staying together during play. Neither mode stays together on most of these TFs. That frustrates the hell out of my kids and they then stop playing with them. Finally, the titan class figures. Hips are actually dangerous. Metroplex and FM, while in bot mode will just fall over almost crashing on my kids heads.

    I honestly think Hasbro doesn't consider any of these issues, and that's why my kids don't really have any figures. There is better stuff to buy for them.

    Brian Goldner is too busy counting his fortune in Hasbro stock that has tripled since the great cost cutting began to care about making quality toys. Maybe when the stock market finally corrects after being on the central bank fueled binge, they will care about making quality toys again. For now making garbage has been insanely profitable for executives with stock based compensation.

    NuRID is actually looking not so bad in retrospect re: its toyline. I might grab Shockwave and one of the Grimlocks but that's it. And with very little in the way of new MPs this year, my focus will be on POTP and Studio Series. Hey, I have no problems saving money.

    I would like to make fun off this line but only looking at Starscreams non-firing firing missile pods (that was intended) just makes me sad:( . Back in 2004 those pods would have at least fired a barrage of missiles when you activated the toy-ruinning gimmick. But now? In the end this line makes NuRID warriors look like a Generations spin-off, which honestly is just sad and not even funny in my opinion.

    What kills me is they might as well give him a missile firing gimmick because compared to the collector lines, these toys look to have articulation that isn't much better than Armada's.

    Even the small Movie Legends and Cyberverse toys had full transformations. And I guarantee you those probably cost the same as these budget-wise.

    Thank you Hasbro for giving me another great excuse to save some money on Transformers toys this year. Hasbro PotP has been pretty good overall. But with Cyberverse and Studio Series, there's a now a lot that will be easy for me to skip. Not sure what the second half of the year will bring, but it will not contain superior Takara Titans Return figs, and is looking pretty skinny one G1 Takara MP's so far. Maybe this year I'll finally thin out the collection significantly, and pick up the few remaining vintage figures to finish G1 through Headmasters.

    I think the only one that\'s actually worth investing in (in my opinion) is shockwave. I like his robot form close to the g1 series, and the fact the he has a spider tank viechle form that looks cybertroinian is pretty sweet.

    I don\'t shockwave should have a human viechle form, but again that\'s my opinion.

    Oh yah, I'm certain too, but if they DID have proper alt modes, why haven't they just shown them off yet? Again, Megatron not having his cannon makes the idea of him turning into a full tank confusing.

    IMO he'd make a great CHUG repurposed Shockwave until we get a proper Deluxe or Voyager Shocky who turns into a gun.

    Yep. I was considering getting NuRID Bludgeon to repurpose as CHUG Bludgeon, tbh...
