Good news. This opens up the door for metallic paintjobs and extra paint apps that make these small crappy figures actually worth buying. How about a G1 accurate FOC Bruticus that includes a proper grey and blue Vortex ? I pre-ordered that Takara Shockwave hoping it would have a more cartoon accurate paintjob like Henkei Cyclonus colors.

Sorry guys, but no ammount of metallic paint or chrome can save these figures from their irregular size. One jazz should not be looking RTS Jazz in the chest unless its a scout, pass just as I passed on the domestic version.
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

Good point. That will be an interesting one to see how it's handled. I wonder if the Arms Micron figure will just be integrated into this TG line.


Considering the Arms Micron figure is being released the same month these are supposedly coming out (December 2012), I don't see it happening.

TakaraTomy is moving Shockwave to their Prime line to get more figures out for that line because he appears on the show.

Well he's going to be on the Prime cartoon so I imagine the toy's colors might be changed to reflect that version rather than the G1 cartoon.

Neither of the figures talked about here have been upsized or downsized. They were all separate molds. They're extremely similar but they're separate molds.

See, that's where the difference between retool and separate mold enters a grey area. SL Galvatron could very well be downsized from Energon Megatron from the design sketches on, using the same design cues but executing them in two different sizes.
Starscream is a bit harder to properly place, as the differences between the Voyager and the Supreme are quite numerous. It is possible that TakaraTomy went ahead with an earlier version of the design, and that Hasbro refined it for the Supreme.

I do hope they upscale Optimus to a voyager just like they did with Soundwave. I'll be getting that Blaster, but not Soundwave and Soundblaster, the deluxe Soundwave is good enough.

They don't need to upscale all the others, just Optimus (and Ultra Magnus). Eventhough I already own Optimus :).

Yep, although I don't agree with them dropping the blue from Jazz entirely, these look significantly better than the Hasbro versions. Too bad they cost more than twice as much.

Personally, that Prime is too shiny for me to feel like it belongs in a war.

But that Jazz has an extremely accurate deco, unlike Bizarre Blue Jazz we got from Hasbro.
