    You and me both. Was hoping since I had Legends Hardhead I could skip, but hot damn seeing them side by side and this new retro version looks like the best of the bunch.

    Welp screw it. I'm down for Highbrow, Skullcruncher, and Wierdwolf if they look just as good as Wave 1 does.

    Originally passed on Chromedome because of the IDW head. Not this time.

    Two things I hope we get out of this line: Apeface and Snapdragon with improved plastic colors and paint.

    Damn , Someone’s mad. Just because Hasbro is doing something new doesn’t mean it’s automatically good and above criticism

    I really like the paint changes to Hard Head the green "roof" really looks nice. I'll gladly buy a Brain Storm and Chrome dome as those are the ones I missed last time round.... fingers crossed Hasbro let other stores over seas stock them.

    Just because Hasbro is doing something you aren't interested in doesn't mean you should wish for it to fail

    Yeah, especially since people are actually interested in actually buying these things. It would basically end up being a "Expansive Sub-line" you could add along the WFC figures.

    Cool, I missed out on Hardhead and wanted him, and this one looks to have better paint.

    I'm personally hoping these sell well enough that we get the Takara Seacons released this way.

    I’m not wishing it to fail, I’m just saying that the line is probably not gonna sell all that well.

    and that's your assumption based on the fact that you aren't interested in it, but the general tone of this thread (granted this thread isn't representing the entire fandom) seems to disagree with you. More people seem to be excited for these than not interested.

    I'm not buying any of these, so there's nothing for me to be mad about and I never said anything about something that's new is automatically good. And there's a world of difference between criticizing them and saying you hope they shelfwarm. lmao did you even read my post, because there's no correlation between what you said and what I pointed you out for.

    Looking forward to a line shelfwarming means you hope it fails.

    Hasbro’s should just do a Generations import line.

    Was originally gonna get all of them, but I think I'll skip Brainstorm for the original TR release. The rest look good, especially Hardhead.

    I was hoping that Brainstorm\'s face wasn\'t so sickly looking in hand but it still looks weird here in hand. Love that we finally get the mouth version but just wish it was more orange. Obviously the Takara ones still kill it but I am so glad these are coming out! 

    Back in TR I never got Chromedome because I figured they would release his real head some way or another. I figured we would have received a head pack like the Japanese market got but just in reverse.
