    watching the TFU.info YouTube video and wishing they'd stood cliff next to wheeljack to get a real sense of his size.

    Ahh yeah me too, Cliff jumper has always been one of my absolute favourite characters (not too sure why). I have 0 problem with him being deluxe but I want him to be a bit smaller than the rest

    Why does Starscream look like he has an extra set of his null rays hanging off the bottom of his jet mode? o_O

    Don't forget - Sunstreaker, Tracks, Skids, maybe Jazz


    I know Sun and Jazz had figures MORE recently, but between Trailbreaker, Inferno and the ones I mentioned -- that would be in for the 84-85 autobot cars (not counting minibots)

    Good observation. Hopefully they will continue the theme with a deluxe Huffer in future waves.

    So it's pretty inevitable for future waves.......

    Hoist -----> Trailbreaker (small re-tool)

    Grapple ----> Inferno (small re-tool)

    Wheeljack ---> Tracks, Sunstreaker, Jazz (re-tools)

    All that would be left would be Skids which COULD be a heavy re-tool from Cliffjumper possibly


    Right, only makes sense......can't really use the "well they just had a figure recently" argument since Hound, Ironhide, Mirage and Wheeljack all just got new figures after having ones in Combiner Wars......right?

    I agree 100% I can’t wait! But jazz will be his own mold or maybe use some of WJs mold!

    Why would jazz be a retool of wheeljack? They look nothing alike

    But the 3 seekers. Again!
    This mold look so nice. Mini Master piece. :) 

    Nice! No mp-44 back pack. :) 

    Yeah, i think he's a legend size figure. So they add some more parts for him.
    These parts actually makes sense.
    Astrotrains parts doesn't make sense to me.
    Was better that his part close up the back of his shuttle mode.
    Because of all those openings, i'm not buying Astrotrain.
    Getting FT version anyways.

    And then there will be a new Bumblebee. Bring it!
    And new mode for Megatron in wave 2 as leader class?

    Deluxe Huffer would be great. There are so many options for extra accessories... Especially an adapter to pull Leader Prime's trailer.

    Sorry, I forgot the word maybe.

    Would have been better suited to put him on his own line like I did for skids as a heavy re-tool.

    My point still stands though -- there are only a few 84-85 bots that need a "proper" update if they are sticking to this all-in looking like their G1 counterparts routine they are doing.

    Thanks for catching my mis-speak.

    I'm not too blown away by certain parts of this line. I really love the tetrajet design. But...who am I kidding? I'll buy everything. This whole "piece of the map with each figure" sucked me in. Well played, Hasbro! Well played.

    I LOVE what they're doing with the micromasters stuff. I hope (and presume) the new roadways and ramps will work with OS too. I'm in for the whole line. Preorders done and up. I'm sure I'll have to get several Soundbarrier's. I love the road-mode as well as the new blast effect.

    Hasbro said they had no plans at the time to do earth sideswipe yesterday but I wouldn't mind a slight retool of sunstreaker(if we get him)

    It's going to be really hard to say no to really any of these reveals but I know I'm going to have to if I want to have any amount of money by the end of the line.

    All the reveals from Earthrise are magnificent and I really can't wait to see the rest of this line. Cliffjumper and Starscream are the highlights for me. Both are magnificent and really well made. The inevitable Bumblebee retool is going to be a treat because I can tell Hasbro is going to have to do a significant retool to make Bee work from that mold.

    sunstreaker wouldnt be a sideswipe retool, you literally cant get sunstreakers bot mode out of any sort of retool of sideswipe, not if youre going for the g1 bot mode anyway

    You could use the Wheeljack engineering, but with serious re-molding

    I have a killer Earth Jazz from RTS that will be tough to beat, so I’m still bummed we didn’t get a Cybertron Jazz. Or Wheeljack. Or Bee. I’ll happily buy the new Jack and inevitable new Bee, and maybe they’ll impress me with a new Jazz. But if we missed our chance at those MTMTE figures, I’m sad.

    Ya’ll killed me with that poll (even if I am excited about Impactor). I will always wonder if it would have ended up differently if we’d known we were getting Cybertron molds when the poll went out.

    I was about to complain about the Decepticon symbols ending up upside down on Starscream's wings, but it seems like that's actually accurate...

    I know their bot modes are different but I meant if we got an earth sunstreaker I would be fine if they just made him red and gave him sideswipe's head, so they could at least have matching vehicles

    you might be ok with that, but looking at these figures you cant honestly think they would do that. these are more or less sunbow accurate figures and a red sunstreaker is not sideswipe
