P.S. Am I the only one excited about Inferno? He was my very first Transformer when I was a kid!



I'm pretty excited about Inferno too.

Wow. They all look pretty good to me, especially Cyclonus. Inferno looks weird to me, but maybe it's due to my current mood. Idk. Anyway, I never got Starscream the first time round. Now I've got a second chance!

But are these gonna be $13 like someone said above?? That would be a bummer.

Yeah, I think he is the best mold of them all. Def. one of the best Universe/Classics molds IMO. Cant wait for that :o

Because not everyone has him already. Why don't people ask this when another G1 Prime reissue gets thrown out? It's the same thing: it gives people who don't already have the figure another chance to buy it.


Thanks for the come response to that. I was going to rip him apart... but yeah, I guess not.

If it makes you feel any better, my first reponse was to scream at the sky, then type out something very rude about people who complain about reissues and repaints. :wink: I really don't get the problem. You don't like it, don't buy it. Problem solved.

Motto: "Not all those who wander are lost."
Weapon: Sword
I'm very exited for these Classics releases.

Hound looks great, my only problem is the shade of green; it should be darker. I can hear the kids now: "Look! A new Ratchet!"
Definite buy.

Inferno looks good, too. Unfortunately, I think it looks more like Energon Inferno, rather than G1. He should have a ladder or at least a bigger cannon. The one in the photo looks very out of scale with the truck. I would have liked a backpack of some sort, to look more like G1 Inferno. But overall, pretty good.
Probable buy.

Cyclonus is amazingly G1 style, IMO, especially in alt mode. Only problem is his thighs look too thin.
Definite buy.

Starscream: I hope this is in fact the Henkei repaint, rather than a straight reissue. Either way, it's good for those who missed the first release.
Pass, since I have the first one.
(Will we get a Classics Thundercracker in the Universe line? Please?)

Vector Prime: These colors just don't work for me. I like my Cybertron VP just fine.
Pass.

Bruticus: the colors look good, but never really liked that mold.
Pass.

Cheetor: I would have liked a new Cheetor figure. This isn't Cheetor. It looks horrible. The first Cheetor figure from the 90's looks better than this.
Definite PASS!

I would love to see an all new Tigatron in the Universe line, as long as it is a new, good mold. In other words, better than this Cheetor, and for sure NOT a repaint of this Cheetor.

Hmm, 3 or 4 buys out of seven, not too bad, Hasbro! :)

As for the price, I've noticed Hasbro's Marvel Legends are now 14.99 at Target. Not good. Not good at all. I'm afraid if this price increase includes Transformers, I will have to limit myself to buying characters/figures that I just GOTTA have, rather than every one that grabs my attention.
Therefore, just X-Men and TF Classics 2.0 characters for me, from now on. :-(

Cyclonus and the Sharkticon have brought tears of joy to my eyes.

I can't afford the $75 price on the Henkei, especially since I have City Commander on preorder. I want to see Thundercracker on retailer shelves in the Universe line, for those of us who could not afford these ridiculously priced exclusives.

Anyway, thanks for the heads up!
