    Those designs are horrendous. Especially the deluxes.

    love the platinum stuff, the packaging for beast hunters makes it worse than i thought and the add on armor for the Prime guys looks very messy

    No deluxe Smokescreen? No Leader class Megatron? My wallet is safe.

    So the Beast Hunters toyline is retools of previously-released toys, along with lackluster new "Predacon" molds. Not to mention that the "Year of the Snake" Energon repaints are a Classics-styled Omega Supreme and a G1-colored Optimus Prime.

    Pass.

    Wow, a main-line bumblebee that doesn't look like complete ass? Never thought I'd see the day.

    Gotta pick up that Omega Supreme, it may be the closes thing we'll ever get. At least officially. :D

    I'm liking the change to Prime, it should make an interesting story line. Figures look great, love the sinnertwin hommage. I hope that they have more terrorcon homages. The new Kreo look great. The new Omega looks awesome.

    Didn't they say the BH BB is all new?


    Also LOVING Omega. I've wanted that since the Energon one came out.

    It also cracks open the door for getting Cybertron Metroplex with some new parts as Fortress Maximus.

    You know, I completely agree with this.

    THe remolds are a massive pass FOR ME, but I can see my son just loving them.

    Huge spring loaded ridiculousness is _right_ up his alley.

    The Prime/Mad Max crossover has arisen!
    Seriously, I think the only things I saw that I'm not interested in are the Kreos and the repainted Fatimus Prime. The rest, ALL of them, will be bought on sight. Guaranteed.

    After watching the live stream convention:
    -I thought all the beast hunter figures look fabulous.
    -Too many Bumblebee figures, not to mention another Kreo.
    -Prime S3 looks very interesting especially with Predaking and Shockwave.
    -Love the Legend Game Arts, look fantastic, I hope it gets printed.
    -Little bit disappointed they didn't show any new bot in S3.
    -Again, little bit disappointed they didn't show Prime/Megatron new figure.
    -NY Convention, just wow. And here we were supposed not to get much out of it. More figures/news actually revealed here than BotCon, ehee.

    The two questions I have left after the recent NYCC Hasbro reveals for all things Prime, 1) where does the reveal of Cybertronian 'dinosaurs' as part of Cybertrons history leave the actual Dinobots?, 2) what if any role will the Star Seekers and their 'beast modes' play as part of the Beast Hunters theme?

    It seems like Thundertron was simply thrown into the Prime line as a cool design and as a nod to the novels, but doesn't appear to have a place in the 'toon continuity itself... which I don't like one bit. Similarly, the Dinobots exist alongside the video game franchise continuity and will be introduced in the IDW Prime comics, but no planned 'toon appearance??! Something seems odd with these two scenarios. Why not take advantage of the profile the HUB show offers and sell more toys by... IDK... actually having the characters in the show that you're trying to sell on pegs??
