Spider tank Shockwave is so G.D. silly, I can\'t decide if I like it or if I hate it.
I might get that Shockwave.
Since a lot of people are still out of the loop on this.
Cyberverse is not replacing Generations. These are the toys for the new cartoon, which happens to be greatly inspired by classic G1. Generations will still keep plugging along as always.
Actually, It'd be really interesting if Generations keeps going the way it's been going, and shifts it's focus to Beast Wars or JG1 to keep itself separate from Cyberverse, which will have the classic early 80s characters in an updated form.
my kid is going to LOVE the shit out of that Grimlock.
This is a little absurd, who’s to say that wave 5 and 6 weren’t finished when the leak happened, and furthermore, why from business perspective as they know they make lots of money off of generations, why would they just cut a part of their money made? If you think that something like this line or evergreen would replace Generations, you might be looking to much into this.
A few of these aren’t half bad considering the simplistic nature!
I have to agree that the alt mode looks ridiculous though I'm not shocked that they didn't give him his gun mode.
But on the flip side the bot mode is the best I've seen in years that height.
To be honest when I first read it, I dismissed it as click bait. But when you take into account what Takara is doing these days I can't help but to worry a little bit. Hell, where's G.I.Joe been these days..?
To be clear I'm not co-signing that this will happen.
I'm only expressing my stance on if this does happen.
You might want to tweak your post, the text in your quote wasn't me, though the link goes to the correct post!

And again, you might want to tweak your post, you've stuck your reply inside the quote!
Wait a sec did they just lowkey shit on beast wars? in 2018?
Hm, I've got mixed feelings. The Megatron and Shockwave look pretty good, might actually consider picking up, and Starscream looks he could be solid with a bit more paint. I like the design of the Grimlock, but it doesn't look like it has much articulation unfortunately. Bee and Optimus though, I'm really not interested in. Don't like their designs
I might get that Shockwave but it looks to be Im going to fall out of mainline toy collecting and sticking to 3rd party soon
Shockwave is cool as hell. I hate nontraditional tank designs as I think they're ineffective and silly(I make concessions for hovertanks), but in transformers? Sure! I didn't get any of the previous spider tank guys so I won't miss this one.
Shockwave as a Protoss Dragoon I can really get behind and is the only bought on sight as far as I'm concerned. I'll hold off on passing any judgement on Megatron until I see that he's got more then base minimal articulation.
I feel like this is what the RiD2015 line should've been.
For what it is, I personally really like this. And the Warriors have some self-contained gimmick while still being articulated almost-Deluxes?
It's like the Unicron Trilogy era, but with double digits of articulation.
Really loving Shockwave, it's no Voyager but it's good enough for me.
All in all, I'm pretty excited to see more from this line. It has a bit of a "my first Generations" vibe, though. I will miss RiD's designs.
Dear third parties please for the love of primus almighty make some big Pretender shell bodies for these
Whoop! .....I was with you until you stated they should focus on Beastwars. I hate BW!
But I understand that people do love it and I'm not against a figure of 2 being a BW character per wave if Generations continues.
Just don't shift all of its focus since that would be just as bad as this Cyberverse line taking over IMO.
Shockwave interests me. What a great bot mode. But WTF alt mode. Back of the legs are hollow so maybe a better fanmode can be done?
Optimus would look great if it wasn't for those knuckledusters (trying to be kind here...)
I'll likely pull the trigger on that Grimlock (don't really much care for his dino-mode head but I'll deal) as I think otherwise, he looks great. Just for clarification, is Ultra Class still that size that's slightly bigger than voyager but smaller than leader?
Also, that SHockwave looks aces. Especially if you think of it less as a spider mode and more of a Masamune Shirow styled gun platform which it seems like this is. Am getting.
I said BW or JG1. Hasbro hinted that they were going to release a CHUG Star Saber after his recent level of success in the PotP poll. Plus we still have the remainder of late G1 (Micromasters, etc) and G2 to get through before we hit the Beast era, assuming we continue down the same route Generations has been taking us in terms of gimmicks and updates.
