    Forgot about the GE Decepticon Soldier. Was really the only thing in this current set of reveals I was interested in. Disappointed it's a Barricade retool, though not totally shocked. If it goes on clearance anywhere, I might get some, but otherwise, I'll probably pass.

    Who are you? I think this is the first time we've ever interacted. Which sorta indicates to me that you waste time seething with other sad fellows about some randos comments online.

    Heh.

    i like how they slathered these items in grey paint to the point where they didn't have enough budget to pick out the orange highlights on the artillery shell

    We do not know what Thundertron costs yet right? Something tells me that deluxe will not be free. and I feel like there is some reason it is the exclusives that keep getting extras (the Mayhem sets also coming with a micromaster, free Activators with your Leader Class figure from Toys R Us in 2008). Like there's a mutually beneficial financial agreement between Hasbro and the store that makes them do this in the first place, that sometimes gets us more but at other costs

    They retool molds all the time when making new characters, and they keep the same size class. The previous triple changers were all leader class and they think that this guy should be one too. Unfortunately, some people will fall for it.

    So maybe one free Micromaster but not quite two free figures with your voyager, makes sense.

    Transformers Studio Series 86 Steeljaw
    Happy to be getting a new Blaster cassette, honestly no complaints on this one. Preordered.

    Transformers Studio Series 86 Bumblebee
    He reminds me of Origin Bumblebee, I like him. He could be more Bee car shaped and less Cliffjumper car shaped, but that's fine. How weird is it that Siege/Earthrise/Kingdom and all of Legacy have had not a single Bumblebee that wasn't an exclusive? And this is Studio Series so they still haven't.

    Transformers Studio Series Gamer Edition Decepticon Soldier
    I really wish the base mould was nicer. I love Gamer Prime but every other Gamer Series figure has seemed 'weird' compared to other Studio Series figures in their size class. Preordered (I am a sucker for Cybertronian tropp builders, he will look fine as filler with the BBM movie figures.

    Transformers Studio Series BBM Skywarp
    Happy Skywarp is finally nearly here. Like Thundercracker I wish he had his own dedicated Nylon color and didn't just use the same light gray as Starscream and Thrust. I will buy all the Bee figures you guys want to keep putting out. Preordered.

    Transformers Studio Series 86 Springer
    I kind of get the ire towards this figure, but as someone who buys upgrade kits to make good figures great, and make bad figures good, this is 100% a good value when compared to the price of a voyager plus an upgrade kit that would upgrade his sword/blades, shoulders, head/neck, chest and thighs. My biggest gripe is the unpaint-detailed shell from the movie, moreso than the unpainted hammer. Preordered

    Transformers Studio Series Comic Edition Straxus
    Yes, Yes. Straxus, Jhaixus, Tarn, give me all my wonderful evil Decepticon generals.

    BEYBLADE X TRANSFORMERS OPTIMUS PRIMAL 3-60F VS. STARSCREAM 3-80N MULTIPACK SET and BEYBLADE X TRANSFORMERS OPTIMUS PRIME 4-60P VS. MEGATRON 4-80B MULTIPACK SET
    If these looked like the old school Beyblades with the multi level parts I would be more interested. As toys I am sure these are cool but to me they would be display pieces, and these aren't worth that to me. Sigh, I guess I am going to have to let the actual kids buy this one.


    Mattel Hot Wheels Optimus (technically not part of the stream)
    I feel this is a $50 thing more than an $80 thing, but if it was 'only' $50 I can see it being much more attractive to scalpers and less would wind up in the hands of fans. I don't plan on getting myself one, but I hope to secure one for my freinds' kid for xmas, he's 13 and he's loved Transformers and Hot Wheels since before he could talk.

    Eh, I suppose so. Would probably help if I didn't think modern TF in general were outrageously overpriced, but I guess this might be the same value as any other Leader of the same price.

    And that\'s going to be £25 more for those little trinkets. Disgusting.

    Don't forget all the retooling that's supposed to adress the admittedly kind of bad chest transformation, and the new shoulders, hands, and thighs.

    While I like the figure’s improvement and some new accessories, that cheap looking hammer and big canon shell (or a missile) are kind of unnecessary, feel like they were added to justify the price point. Even though I have preordered, I hope I can find it in the wild early.

    Pretty sure they stated outright during the stream that the hammer was included just because they had some extra room in the budget
