90% of that is crap. Is this really what kids are wanting from toys? Thank you Hasbro, thanks to crap like this I can afford Encore Fort Max, Masterpieces and of course the resident four letter word, third party products (ok, not 4 letters but it makes the point). I like the show but I hope the Prime toyline dies very soon.

After reading all the replies it looks like I'm in the group way over to the right that likes.

I cant believe myself that I'm gonna say this but that Bumblebee looks all kinda of awesome in bot mode. I'm a huge Beast Wars fan so this new Beast Hunters direction I'm looking forward to. Omega Supreme look great but that damn open mouth plate is a big turn off on Optimus(looks like he's got a huge ass smile from telling himself a joke). I'm wondering if they will work in the Maximals somehow.
:-?

Not a big fan of the Kreo stuff and the Cyberverse stuff. :MAXIMAL:

Thank you, Hasbro, for giving me the opportunity to save up to get Takara's stuff. I can't believe that I was worried that you guys might come up with something that might make me change my mind on Fortress Max :lol: . The only thing I see that I want right now is Soundwave. I may get Omega AFTER Max is in my hands. He does look cool, though. Never was a Beast Wars toy fan, except Megatron, so those guys will be a PASS. MAYBE leader Predaking, if I like seeing it in person. Optimus Prime- well if I see him WAY on down the road, and there is nothing else out for me to get during that time, then maybe.

Just how many "new" figures are actually coming out? I see more repaint/retool than actual new figures. Are we not seeing everything? And I guess that the "Platinum Edition" transformers will most likely be nothing but repaints/retools. No surprise there, so I guess I'll just have to wait and see then. *sigh* At least Takara is producing stuff to look forward to. :DANCE:

Wait. LEADER Predaking? Image link? The one at the preview night on the white stand?

Hmm... it looked similar to the Voyager in the presentation.

It has weapons under its wings, the wings themselves are black and orange, rather than just orange, and is much bigger.

Weird, so makes three versions? Cyberverse Commander, Voyager and now Leader?
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Apparently so, yes.

If the Leader version is real, I might just have to go for it.
I'm not that impressed by the Voyager.

Good job on designing these toys, Takara, and the Kreo sets from Hasbro.

Now, lets see TakBro (Takara & Hasbro) reissue some G1 toys (I want no safety reasons, use show accurate things and upgrade like sets included like Ironhide/Ratchet busts, better accesories, etc. And make them have chrome! Finally... MAKE MEGATRON AS A WALTHER P-38 PISTOL W/ ALL ACCESORIES!).

Ugh, had no interest in this line when I first heard about it and the pictures did not change my mind.

Honestly I don't understand why people like animal alt modes when the majority of the transformations consist of "move legs, stand on all fours".

As for the plot device that introduces these characters I doubt it's anything more complicated then "ermahgerd time travel".

The trailer on that prime looks absolutely ridiculous and while Omega Supreme looks fairly cool I'm rapidly running out of desire to spend $75+ on combiners that have crappy posability.

ETA: It also looks like the silver part of the trailer isn't incorporated into OP's robot mode either which makes it a total pass for me.
Looking for the Megatron gun (or just the stock) that came with 20th anniversary MP Optimus Prime.

Dear Lord, you're right! I hadn't considered that, but that's it right on the nail head. Good eye, sir.

Just when that Predaking photo had me worried the Hasbro mafia was pulling me back in. Looks like I won't have to worry about paying for MP Soundwave after all. If the kids go for this, I'm all for it. They are the future, Hasbro is a business, and I understand the company has to focus on them in order to continue to stay in business. That being said however, there are an awful lot of shelfwarmers in the stores here around me. Even the Vehicons aren't disappearing. Signs of the economy, or signs of consumer tastes? Like Michael McConnohie said in an interview: "You can't talk down to kids. They're not stupid."

It's well worth asking the staff of places like Target to check in back. It seems like a few places have the DVD versions of the deluxes but aren't putting them out until the non-DVD ones sell.

There's no Lockdown in the Prime universe, so everyone else has to pretend to be him.

Love the Predacons and Soundwave, and glad to get a Smokescreen toy, not quite sold on the rest, which look like retools, will have to see reviews or wait for it to turn up on the show to be sure. Except for Viking Bulkhead, which amuses me.

Like the Omega Supreme, but hope his joints are strong with that claw arm, and hope the retool didn't eliminate the headmaster gimmick. The Energon Optimsu recolor seems uninspired, and I really hope they use the faceplated version of the mold for the final release.
We're all just products of our programming... And there always seem to be a few glitches.

I see airachnid still looks like shit lol also I'm not to happy with the way prime is going I'm not really a fan of robots that turn to animals or reptiles of any short except for the Dinobots. Plus I'm not impressed with any of these figures most are already released molds with extra chunks put on them. And omega supream isn't doing it for me either I can't stand the unicron trilogy figures I only liked less than a hand full.

It's not ideal, but that Omega might have to be my Classics version. It's funny as I was just thinking of hunting down the original Energon version.

I'm not a fan of the Cyberverse figures in general, but if the Beast Hunters line gives us an original mold deluxe Smokescreen like the Cyberverse one I'll be very happy. Apex Armour is a letdown.

The deluxes are pretty good, although Bumblebee and Wheeljack make me think of Power Rangers Dino Thunder's Super Dino mode. I really want to see Predaking's robot mode simply because they're not showing it. I'm sure it's nothing amazing, but the shameless marketing ploy has worked on me.
