    Where is Windblade? Isn't she supposed to be prominent in this new series?

    Her Scout toy's gimmick is bouncing robo-boobs.

    Oh I get it, these are the 'core wave 1 characters' which retailers will over order on, meaning we'll likely not see much of the later characters

    I think it's good no matter your budget you get to get the character but I can't help feeling they could have done this some other way

    I was thinking his backpack looks like a jet pack from a Bond film. If those missile batteries actually fired, he'd be cool. But alas :(

    I\'m half excited, and half dreading this show coming up. I hope with its (rough story it\'s not like RiD, nor as campy and rediculous. Unfortanately (like the quality of the figures) it seems it migh go that way. But you never know, they may surprise us with a high quality Transformers show (crossing fingers). 

    Also this is purely my opinion.

    Yeah they are. They look more like purple matches don't they?

    I know it's completely nuts - you just don't do that if you have any sense you make all the characters across all the sizes and each new wave you juggle them around. Released 3 Starscreams at the same time just sow's brand confusion.

    They did the same thing with Nu-RID when they released a wide selection of Soundwaves in short order... very confusing.

    I'm rather disapointed as when I saw the "Busy Book" designs I though... "Oh those look like they have potential" - I never imagined that art would look so unlike the toys.

    It's like Hasbro wants the Chinese to take their ideas and do it better. Am I the only one who thought toys would get better over time - not reasch some high around 2010 and then get progressivly worse ever since (overall).

    {EDIT}

    Note on Warrior Optimus Prime.

    If they had made the legs in two pieces the hollowness could have been invisible inside his legs and he could have also of had a moveable foot so he didn't have his toes sticking up in truck mode.

    That toys just makes me flinch - Nu-RID had enough design compromises already - but something like Bumblebee wasn't that different from a normal Deluxe.

    These are far far away from Deluxe quality - heck it terrifies me to contemplate what the Neo-WFC line will be like now. with the extensive use of Cybertronian mode I foresee design short-cuts aplenty ahead.

    The Scouts are cheap and as long as the gimmicks work, they'll be fun little desk toys. They might even end up being more fun to fidget with than any of the Titan Masters or Prime Masters have been.

    Ultra Grimlock has kinda grown on me, I admit. I might get him, Shockwave and Warrior Starscream (as if that's a surprise). Mostly just meh though on the other toys.

    After watching some reviews on YouTube, this is a terrible line. It’s not even a good line for kids either. At least the 80s toys had the excuse that it was the 80s, these have no excuse.

    I think the only one I'm interested in getting is Ultra Grimlock because I really like the look of his robot mode. Less so his dino mode because of that goofy looking smile.

    Yeah. The missile pods on the shoulders is aces to me. After finally seeing some of these in the store, I might pick up the leader sized (I can't remember what the designation for leader is for Cyberverse) Optimus and Megatron for my kid as they have a nice design and look sturdy (OPtimus' fist being enclosed by truck parts notwithstanding) and I'm sure he'll like the gimmicks.
