    Pfft, those are amateur hour. I was around for the Raksha manifestos on USENET back in the day about how the Decepticons were really the heroes and Megatron was the only morally correct leader in '80s cartoons.

    Skipping all of these. Nothing exciting that I don't already have.

    I was there. I was there for all the alt.rec.transformers discussions about what everyone's alt modes would be in the 90s, a bunch of Star Trek jokes I didn't get, and people complaining about not being able to get Nightracer. I remember going to Raksha's website back in the day to try to find something and mostly feeling weird about all of their pro-Megatron essays.

    I'm not bothered by cheaply expensive repaints, I'm not bothered by the desperate cash grab over G1 nostalgia, I'm not even bothered by people buying 3 year old stuff as if it was the ultimate re-release. No. What really bothers me is that they put out 3 good guys and one bad guy, while the complete set should have 4 good guys and 3 bad guys (5 if you count horrorcons). This randomness, this lazyness, it really pisses me off.

    .........you do realize that this is wave 1 right? And wave 2 is supposed to have Weirdwolf, Skullcruncher and Highbrow. Deluxe waves are typically 4 characters, not 7, so it is neither lazy nor random

    These are cool. Alaways thought the toy decos looked cooler than the plain surfaces we get for cArTooN accuracy. I wonder if we'll get some sort of Nightbeat... that isnt a drill.

    I get this might not be for everyone. Bashing it seems counter productive though. My copy of Weird wolf cracked after light play at the canopy and the helicopter blades on Highbrow snapped during a freak Optimus helmet mishap from it\'s perch on my desk. I look forward to getting another shot at Brainstorm as well. I hunted 6 Walgreens for months and never came across him. To everyone dead set against this, thank you. Less  competition for the rest of us.

    Exactly, I started collecting just a few months ago and I'm happy to get opportunities for characters like Brainstorm again

    I'm glad these are being done; the boxes are cool and it's nice that the Takara heads are getting a Hasbro release. If I weren't part way into the Takara ones and a sucker for their extra accessories would actually go for these barring Brainstorm (because the show accurate black just looks leagues better) as these vintage style boxes look spectacular. If they end up doing the Targetmasters with the Takara targetmaster molds I'd def buy those.

    Yup. I don't regret having paid more than I should have had to for Highbrow (~150%) and Brainstorm (300+%), but I would have loved the opportunity to buy them from a shop shelf for less. And had I not already acquired them, I'd be eagerly awaiting this release.

    Hmm, wonder how long before these start being returned with TR Titanmasters?
    I give it 20 minutes

    Hardhead’s shoulder cannon is missing a part in the Tank Mode pics. But it’s there in the Robot Mode pics. How does Hasbro let something like that happen?!

    Maybe they'll redo PotP figures of all the G1 figures from the headmasters era. I still need a Grotusque and Misfire at a reasonable price.

    They can do this with about all the 84-85 cars from Siege/ER at this point. Plus PotP Punch/CP.
    Would be cool.
