Comparing them point by point to their counterparts from the 2012 lines, they are indeed retools. They are EXTENSIVE retools, but retools nonetheless. The proportions are identical, parts appear to move in the same ways, all the panelings are the same, except now they're covered in spikes and other details and include new headsculpts and new weapons.

Well, comparing with last year's NYCC, it seems about the same. We saw First Edition and RID Wave 1 Deluxe, Commander, and Legion. Deluxe waves 2 and 3, and voyager wave 2 weren't shown off until Cybertron Con and Toy Fair. So I think those events in 2013 are where we can expect to see the next waves of this line. It's not a lot, especially since 3 out of every 4 figures are retools, but New Features (spikes and weaponry) + New Packaging = New Toy for Hasbro, so it's understandable.
