    Iminda like the robot mode, but the alt mode is a little meh. Not a fan of his limbs all just kind of being there in alt mode.

    I do not like anything about this, from the design to the colours, the dull red and hideous gray-piss plastic. Recalibrating expectations for this line to near zero.

    I bet the new kids oriented TF line will have plastic windows, but the collectors line won't start until 2025

    Also, every continuity is different. WfC is "scale" but the G1 guys are the same size as the BW guys.

    Wouldn't be shocked if One is similar to Cyberverse where many of the characters are the same height. Or close enough that they all fit in the same price point.

    And doing them as Deluxes not only means they're in a lower price tier for younger crowds, but they can also fit more One characters in a given wave.

    Which is good if the goal is for these to be hitting stores around the same time the movie is on theaters.

    Not according to that post, sure. But then BMac clarified on Instagram that for Transformers, it would only start in 2025, hence the lack of TF images in the news post.

    That move has always kinda baffled me. I've always liked scale variance among tfs.

    Would be odd to publicly announce a brand that’s not included in the lineup as being included…

    We still think this is A-Level? If it was, I would’ve assumed it had like, a sticker or something on it

    "A-level" is just the internal name. Once we get a better look at the box we'll be able to see what it says on the "Class" label.

    A level is just in the listing. Like how you see movie numbers in the listings but not on the boxes

    Probably 86 Bee, because I doubt they would only show Optimus, especially since the release date of the A level figures is June.

    To be fair the boxes still have the movie name at least 3 times on the box- but your point still stands though, it's not actually on the packaging.

    For the original question, IIRC A level is just a way to ensure Optimus and Bee remained on shelves year-round, and Deluxe class is the easiest size for that.

    Plus if you squint, you can see a blurry Deluxe Class on the side of the packaging in the usual spot.
