If I could actually find a Vehicon in stores I'd be pleased. I haven't seen anything but Bumblebee since August.

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 **** 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.

I know the release of prime figures is horrible I can't believe I actually found a kup rumble and vehicon all in one shot then I walked into my local Walgreens and found an airachnid. But other than that all I've seen in stores is bees and wheeljacks since wave 2

Quite honestly, I was thinking the same thing. I assume that they are aiming for a more G1-ish head, but I feel that it could be a bit bigger. Besides that, I think that if my finances improve, I might consider seeking out his Japanese Energon counterpart. >:oP

with the exception of Omega Supreme which is a pretty clever retool, these pictures make me thank Primus for 3rd parties. How much worse can Hasbro's output get before even kids turn their noses up?

I think the new head is meant to be based on the WFC Omega Supreme game model, like how the new claw is.

As for why it's smaller, maybe they got rid of the Headmaster gimmick and had to make the head small enough to fit underneath the Vehicle Mode and be hidden away in that form

There is that version as well, seeing how that would explain the lack of creepiness expressed with his head, versus the G1 Encore "debut" piece that Takara Tomy put out. ;)

I couldn't agree less. I can really see where Hasbro are going with this. The beasts are something totally new to any kids who got into Transformers between now and Cybertron, and those new ridiculously pointy cars with their big, action-featured accessories are really gonna stand out on shelves for parents and kids. And I'm not into Cyberverse but it seems to be popular with kids and they have a lot of good ideas here (including the Roadbuster Bulkhead which is pure fanbait).

I thought he was cute-ish when I believed it was a basic but learning that it's even tinier than that has made me forgive the poor articulation. I'm going to be all over this stuff if the rest of the terrorcons receive legion figures as well. I'm going to be all over this little fellow in any case.
