I quite like Slicer. Not sure about the rest. Don't think I'll bother with ridicushipping charges to get them.

So...
Wheeljack is Slicer
Bumblebee is Goldbug
Starscream is Skywarp
Megatron is Galvatron/Shadow Strike Megatron
Optimus is styled like that Deluxe DoTM Walmart exclusive Optimus (I forget the name)

Who is Knockout supposed to be?

And these all feature boatloads of transparent plastic, yes?

Translucent Skywarp is a must. Hopefully they're a bit over priced so I'm not tempted to get them all.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

I think Skywarp is the only need to get. Prime Looks Lame as hell. Maybe Megs, he ain't bad.

Now to wait for the preorders.

I will be buying all of these for sure. Even with th blurry pictures I can tell these are going to be sweet. Excellent choice on BBTS's part. These are going to sell like crazy. Hell they might even be able to get Hasbro to do another set later, so we all can have a Dark Energon wave 2, with other characters.

The choices of colors and translucent plastics is just the bomb.

They're nice, but they're not essential...except maybe Knock Out?

Would you consider them to be like a 'Shattered Glass' Prime line?

a wise pro-wrestler once told me, and the world, that it doesn't matter what I think.

if you think they'd be cool as a SG Prime line, and fancy getting them because of it, go for it. sounds like a good idea.

So what's going on with the red and green Knockouts? which ones gonna be the exclusive?
I hope it's the green one i'll take it he's a Crumplezone homage if not he will be and Slicer is looking pretty good too plus that Megatron is the only version of that figure i like .

I'm pretty sure they're all exclusives and that the green one is the one we're getting. The red one was just a preview/mockup that isn't going into production as I understand it.
