So that is what that artwork for the speculated "Voyager" Optimus Prime was. But seriously those PCC looking things look great. I'm speechless with how good most of this looks. I'm also relieved that Blitzwing didn't look like the mistransformed display model

The third parties threw down the gauntlet and Hasbro was quick to pick it up.

My to buy list:

Everything

...Huh, should pare that down.

Metroplex
Blitzwing
Springer
2 Each of Megatron and Optimus in their IDW forms (one to keep boxed for posterity)
Cyberverse Shockwave, Soundwave, and all of the announced Predacons

I've been buying all the BH figures by wave so far, and I suspect I'll do the same thing with the next round of deluxes. Not sure about that Voyager Grimwing yet, but the Predacons have really caught my interest so I'll probably buy him too.

Ultimate Predaking? Yes. Ultimate Optimus? Ehhhhhh.... nah.

And then there are those 3rd party Stunticons still to come... :-(

I really didn't need that extra kidney anyway.

Bot Shots, Beast Hunters, & Cyberverse, Construct Bots - Pass...

IDW/FoC/ect. - hmmm, I'll need to dissect this one
~Trailbreaker & Blitzwing - Obligated purchase
~Springer - Not sure... already have Defender, but Primus does this one look great!
~Megatron & Bumblebee - only if I can manage, they are far from necessary and don't look that great
~Metroplex - only if I'm prepared to become a criminal to obtain it... which I'm not, so no

Oh, and to all those who were hopeful for that IDW Optimus mold... :lol: sucks to be you!

i was gonna cave in and buy a 3rd party offering as they're hitting me where my collecting ambitions lie (ie g1) between the stunticons, aerialbots, predacons, broadside and the headmaster figures, they were definitely beckoning but hasbro with these announcemnts means i'll be a 3rd party virgin and collect official stuff only

my current want list: Fortress Maximus, Metroplex, springer, trailbreaker, blitzwing, orion pax, ultimate predaking, voyager shockwave, megatron, mp soundwave

and correct me if I'm wrong but this isn't the be all and end all.. they might still have other toys later in the year that they haven't announced yet..? who knows.. if they're ambitious enough and if metroplex is anything to go by we might one day see a decent galvatron.

Well, you have nothing on me, so no reason to feel bad. Or feel good, IDK what best applies to this situation. The only thing in that gallery I want is Hun-Gurr. Anything else falls outside of my interest/budget intersection sweetspot. I am really looking forward to that one little critter, though, if that makes up for it.

The weapon he's got, is it made out of the same soft plastic as the Prime legions transparent weapons?

Blitzwing looks much better correctly transformed. He's back on the want list.

To be perfectly honest, I am a huge fan of increased diversity in the Transformers universe. After all, change is what the line is really all about, not just in robots and vehicles and beasts, but in stories and philosophies. This is partly why I have never understood the whole rehashing of old characters- particularly G1, which often seems to put me at odds with a number of transfans (especially in regards to the Masterpiece line). Most often, I want to see what they come up with next, want to see what the next ideation of Transformers will be. This "mythical" twist on Transformers is a HUGE change...we did have Beast Wars, but never before have we had a line of completely and utterly mythical creatures. I am LOVING it.

I have two upcoming job interviews, both of which will result in pay increases of 30% for me. I think I know where those pay increases are going and hope I get those jobs lest I have the need for a bankruptcy lawyer.

I know the Voyager Shockwave has gotten some slack for the armor, but honestly it's grown on me. I wish they had picked another color than red- a black or blood red would have been more impressive to the masses I think- but overall, it's a very nicely done figure.

Trailcutter is not bad. I was stunned to see the Orion Pax figure. That is definitely something that has never been done by Hasbro before. I am also pleased with the new Megatron and Bumblebee figs as I am a fan of the changes made to the characters by IDW.

Metroplex- what can you say? I will have him standing next to Fort giving him fist bumps.

By far, the most impressive of these figures to me is the dragons. Predaking is breathtaking. Huge, articulated, great coloring in black with good highlights in a darker orange than the Voyager figure which gives him a more threatening and sinister look. Outstanding! Even the Supreme Optimus figure looks very imposing (that sword is BADASS). I think I am gonna have a good Transformers year.

Hasbro has recently done lots of IMO crappy stuff (or even if they have done something nice, it has been hard to get US only release), but that Metroplex is actually rather nice. That waist is a bit too slim, but it is not a dealbreaker. Now don't tell me that this is some TRU US limited version as well.

Also Megatron and Orion Pax looks quite nice and worth getting.

I don't really know what that BH commander(?) Shockwave is, but it is also interesting.

Can't stop staring at the Trailcutter pic. It's actually going to happen. :grin: Metroplex... :shock: Not just a Metroplex, but a Metroplex that can carry my G1 Metroplex.. =P~

Maybe Metroplex, if I can find the room...

No need for Fortmax now.

I kind of agree about Fort Max... considering dropping that now... don't really see the point of it with Metroplex.

Also I love Hasbro everything Hasbro is giving us this year. Lets hope no one calls them Hasblow at least for a little while.

I'm only interested in the Generations line atm;

Must buys:
Trailcutter
Springer
Blitzwing
Metroplex


BH has done little to re-ignite my interest in the Prime toys and in light of all the great Generations and 3P offerings I'm going to cancel my Shockwave pre-order. I have zero faith in the line and only want a Shockwave that fits with my Classics shelf anyway.

Posted by Immortalis09 on February 10th, 2013 @ 6:59pm CST
Absolutely awesome. I cannot wait for this lot to come out. My definite wants are:
Metroplex, springer, trailbreaker, blitzwing, orion pax, Voyager predaking, voyager shockwave, megatron, IDW bumblebee, mp soundwave and mp Acid Storm.

I also really like the look of the legends Bumblebee and Prime would have preferred deluxe or voyager size though. Perhaps in a later announcement or for 2014 when they officially reach the big 30.

I just hope I will be able to get Metroplex at a decent price in the UK.

Posted by craggy on February 10th, 2013 @ 7:54pm CST
I'll definitely get:
Springer
Trailbreaker
Metroplex (reconsidering some 3rd party stuff to afford it, well played Hasbro)
Megaplex (repurposed from IDW stealth bomber Megatron)
BH Ratchet (repurposing him as something else too)
Blitzwing
Cyberverse Abominus

I'm heavily considering:
Voyager Shockwave
BH Bulkhead (I know we've seen him before but he still looks good)
Legends Prime (to stand on Metroplex)
Legends Bumblebee
BH Smokescreen
MP Soundwave (have the tapes on Pre-order from Takara, but was waiting on info of Hasbro's SW)
YOTS Omega Supreme
and maybe some Predacons

Posted by Nemesis Maximo on February 10th, 2013 @ 11:07pm CST
I just realised that Springer is LSotW version, but less...Roche-ified. I am duly impressed.

Also, even if Blitz did look like the mistransformerd display model in person, I'd still be unable to resist him.

On the fence about Megs, though. Would really liked to have seen that be a voyager. But it's still freakin cool looking.

Shockwave might be the only TF Prime figure I get. Not that I don't like the franchise, but I can't but everything, and I need a Shockwave for my 'con ranks.

And Metroplex...I can only hope to be lucky enough to find him in the store. I would probably do a double take. I hope he comes out in the summer, when the pay is GOOD! :ic$: But man...to have that thing...

I measured 24 inches from my counter-top. And hot DAMN that thing is gonna be big!

The only downside to that piece of art is that it towers over Unicron and Primus. That could make it awkward. :-?

Yeah, I am feeling the same way. For such a big figure, there is no excuse for not have more transformation to hide his hands. I really hope it's a mistransformation.

I agree. But, like Grimlock, he will most likely be in robot mode all the time anyway.

Ok, so what is the official word on Metroplex, Blitzwing, and Springer? Are they Fall Of Cybertron figures or are they just in the Generations line? I've read that Metroplex is FOC and is not FOC. I'm wanting to get all figures (recolor/remold) from the FOC line, so I need to know if these three figures are part of that. Any info, please. Thx.

The way I see it, only Series 1 is Fall of Cybertron. Series 2 is the 30th Anniversary of the brand, starting with the IDW Deluxes, Triplechangers and Metroplex. Springer in fact seems to take cues from his Last Stand of the Wreckers appearance.

But unlike Blitzwing and Springer, Metroplex appears (and has a major role) in FoC. They may package him in Generations packaging, but I'm going to consider it a FoC figure and display it as such. Although it could just as easily be part of a "CHUG" display.

Metroplex's toy design is completely oriignal, being based on no existing media version. however, his toy bio seems to recall IDW Metroplex more than any other version, so he's most likely that one.

Springer is straight up IDW Springer in design, and his bio will likely reflect this.

Blitzwing, like Metroplex, also seems to be an original design, so it will take his toy bio to decide who he is (but I'm willing to bet he's also gonna be some G1 version of the guy).
