    i think they are trying to do an earth/cybertroian mix so optimus prime cab mode looks like the earth model but has enough difference to be considered Cybertron-ish.

    Well, Considering that one of the price points (The legends ones) are Micromasters, they could actually make a Micromaster Team consisting of the Armada Minicons as well. So this line could be perfect for not only the Targetmasters, but most of the Armada Crew.

    and to be fair i much enjoy the ss characters of complication and detail, and if the extra $10 is what it needs to be amazing figures then i say its worth it.

    Looking at Firedrive closer and he's definitely not one of the Takara Legends Targetmasters.

    New mold with less articulation. But, still very cool. Especially at the $6 price tag. I especially like the blasts that peg onto the gun barrels.

    Well, that would explain his appearance in part 1 of MTMTE from 1984.

    I am digging the bot mode of this figure.

    The US economy drives your price point. You are lucky you are paying what you are now. Without our market, you would pay 3x what you are currently paying. All economic points aside, what you said is irrelevant. My point was that if they alienate the primary market for these toys, then your wallet is going to suffer even further. Because without the children driving the bulk of this market, prices will only increase even more down the road, and in a very short period of time. In less than ten years it has doubled and the quality has degraded to an insane level that anyone ten years ago subjected to it would have told Hasbro to fuck off. Again, what parent is going to pay these prices? Let alone for the same old Optimus or Bumblebee. I'm certain he is up next for "reveal".

    Exactly I'd rather be happy with a $20 figure than a cheaped out $12 figure. I think I read somewhere that just because the title sounds like the game they won't have cybertronian modes since they've already made toys for that. I'm all for updating the bad CHUG figs that we got!

    Um I think the point was the esoteric decepticons, I have a feeling all the Autobots were getting made anyway. And if you don't want to see Wheeljack in this line, we can't be friends.

    not sure if anyone else posted this but the cybertronian in front of prime in his artwork says "light the darkest hour", so nothing really important

    That Optimus....so close and yet so far.
    Good news is that it looks like the parts that look awful in truck mode (roof and the weird lower light things) may be removable with some work and replaced with custom parts that look better.
    The roof looks as though it sits on the figures back in robot mode and the weird light things sit on the underside of the forearm.

    Wow... these looking freakin' amazing.

    Now here's the thing: I prefer that they have an Earth alt-mode, but of course this is supposed to be War For Cybertron, so it makes sense for everyone to have Cybertronian alt-modes (now this makes me think more about how the Micromasters will look).

    But... if they retool that OP to give it an Earth truck mode down the line - that might be the best CHUG OP ever (IMO of course).

    Putting aside the idea of any future retools, these looks absolutely great either way, and while I'm not 100% sure I'm getting them, I know I definitely like them. And they are selling TM's separately... Hasbro you better give us the rest of the Targetmasters. At least the rest of the original Autobot ones.

    Holy cow. Love Sideswipe's improved head design, vehicle mode, and badass weathered finish.

    I can get behind this kind of \"cybertronian\" altmodes. Stylized, yet still recognizable as the character\'s usual altmode. OP looks like an amazing voyager.
