    I saw Megatron and Soundwave today at my local and they do seem small and the colors are dull.
    I left without buying one at all...

    That's exactly what I thought when I saw them at the store... I didn't cancel yet my pre-order since I still Hasbro replacement for those figures... Maybe Studio Series 86 release them in later waves or Transformers Earthrise or Kingdom?

    Picked up Megatron today.
    Not bad. It's basically a Marvel Legends figure in build and quality. Same plastic. The only real downside is the lack of detailing which kind-of makes it look cheap. It isn't though, but the totally G1 smoothness doesn't do the design any favors as far as knee-jerk negative reactions go.
    May pick up Soundwave next time I'm out.

    I know that part but I was thinking if the version they release on any of those two lines will look better than the ones in the RED line...

    Saw them for the first time in person the other day. I don't really mind the size or the non-transforming aspect too much, but G1 is very wasted potential. I get why they did it, cause those are probably the most recognizable and popular versions of the characters, but the G1 designs mean that lines like Masterpiece and the new WFC stuff can pull it off relatively kibble-free already, plus the robot modes are too blocky for decent sized and articulated figures. Prime is what this line was designed for, and I certainly hope we get more than just Arcee and Knockout.

    Saw all three of wave one in store today. I didn’t get any of them cause I’m trying to save up some cash lately but I don’t think they looked bad.

    Saw them at Walmart today... they look interesting and I definitely want to try them. I put Megatron on my Christmas list, and I will probably by Soundwave on my own to try this line out. 100% pass on Optimus.

    I'm getting Prime and Megatron for Christmas but got to have soundwave. He's pretty great but I may be biased towards my favorite character. When I was able to briefly see prime and Megatron, Prime just doesn't seem vibrant enough.

    I wonder if we'll see bigger R.E.D. figures like 12" Marvel Legends and Lightning Collection.

    Either stuff like Devastator at 12" or more articulated re-dos of Optimus.

    Honestly, I could see an 18-20" Haslab 1:12 RED Optimus with Spike and Sparkplug as a counterpart to Haslab Sentinel. Maybe one a year with 1:12 human pack-ins.
