The figure itself looks good, though.
I'll be sorely disappointed if Rumble has no connection to Soundwave in TFP. That's like... his daddy. :-(

Also, Kup is TINY. :shock:

OMG, that Kup is severely mistransformed. Look at the card art, that resembles the rather awesome little Cyberverse Ironhide. The front of the vehicle should come down over his shoulders like shoulder pads. Also, the left arm has the wheel in front of it, it should be behind like the right arm. Why does Hasbro always hire Mr Magoo to transform their products for shows like this and Botcon?

What's with Thundertron's face?

Is that a mask or something?

But yes, him and Dreadwing/Skyquake. Nom nom nom.

Those guns are built into the figures. It's their entire purpose in life. The rest of the toy is built around that weapon-deploying gimmick. Takara's Microns will be add-ons rather than replacements.

Oh man. Great pics. Rumble looks lighter than I was expecting, but that's okay. Kup is horrendously mistransformed, but I still want him and the Ironhide version of that mold. And Thundertron is truly plastic crack in the purest definition. So much of my want. I ADORE that headsculpt. And it looks like he has a flip-down battle mask or something on top of his head. I'm hoping it's not just part of his transformation. Also, I see a hole on his back where you can store the right foot if you want to have the peg leg. The engineers thought of everything! :APPLAUSE:

Thundertron - what an odd looking contraption! :lol:

Why has Kup got Ironhides head? Is this going to be another mold share?

I am liking the look of Rumble but his massive shoulder kibble could be annoying once in hand? :-?

Between the new Prime and FoC figures, I feel I wont be bothering to grab the complete lines, just a select few...?

Im off to claim my MP Thundercracker pre-order payment back today from Toys R Us so I might quiz them on the release dates/availability of the FoC lines!

Yes, it's meant to be Ironhide but for some reason they're putting out the Kup deco first and Deluxe Ironhide proper is coming at an unknown point in the future.

Kup better be mistransformed... the chest looked better in prototypes... With the headlight on his collar...

His left hand is also screwed up with the wheel the wrong way... Who puts this on display? :lol:

Image

Also, no sign of Thundertron's lion mode? Maybe no one could transform him. :lol: Seems like the thing on top of his head is a mask, much like HFTD Fallen's one.. Except it hinges down and hides his tentacles...

If they put out Ironhide 1st, fewer people would buy the Kup repaint. But buy putting Kup out 1st, you'll by it for a new mold, then buy Ironhide again cos... It's Ironhide. 8-}

Well, I'm sure Hasbro will release Ironhide... or at least Takara is doing an AM one.

Actually, maybe they just haven't appeared yet. Kup and Rumble come with a complementary DVD containing one episode of TFP, which might be the particular episode where they make their debut.

I'm just guessing here, though. Thing is, I have the vaguest recollection that the wave one PRID deluxe figs might have also come with DVD's.

He does, the left foot/claw can be removed and attached on his arm/back.

Weapon: Fusion Cannon
Well, I have mixed feeling so far about what is displayed, and what is not there. I hope we get more clarification on upcoming figures.

1st as others stated, no Breakdown??( extra glad I have my Takara version). No Skyquake to go with Dreadwing?? Also once again Takara outdoes Hasbro on display pieces, and desired character count.

I hope this changes when we hear from Hasbro panel later on at SDCC. Otherwise I am going to be paying up to get the characters I want fromTakara/ Tomy. I have already preordered Nemesis Prime, and Gia Unicron. That's going to increase if I don't hear some good news from Hasbro.

Really curious to see what the "Silas version" of Breakdown looks like, and what kind of differences he has. Seems like Takara's going to release it before Hasbro like the first version, seeing as the promo renders show him with a praying mantis-like arms micron.

Still interested in Thundertron. Kup looks nice. Rumble/Frenzy looks like a mess. I'm only picking up the show characters for Prime. If neither of those is in the show, it wouldn't break my heart.

I actually like the way Kup's shoudler pads are transformed. I think it would give him a distinction between him and Ironhide. Rumble looks amazing, and Thundertron just might have the same flip-down mask gimmick that Hot Shot has (in his case, goggles). Can't wait for Dreadwing....this month? Well hurry it up then, Hasbro! God....

This leaves me wondering if HasTak'll make the other Star Seekers; Brimstone, Cannonball, Axer, and Sandstorm.

Damn-worthy Decepticons, Shivering Sharkticons, Greedy Griffins...I...I think I'm out of cheesy alliterations. *cough* anyway.... now they jack the price up on Deluxes for what? A stupid ass DVD?! Fuuuuuuuu- :BOOM:

With Rumble's chest design and some swords instead of piledrivers, I see a Bludgeon repaint - or at least another iteration for Headrobots to work on (though Dr. Wu could easily beat them to it).

Rumble looks a little plain colour wise but it's a badass looking mold. I'd probably get him and call him something else. I'll definitely get Kup as soon as he turns up in red, and while I initially wasn't blown away by the photo of Thundertron from the Malaysian product catalogue he's looking pretty boss here. Can't wait for him. He's a definite purchase.
