Did they use Wheeljack's head for Silverbolt?

Crap, Deadend is becoming more neon yellow/green with each release.

And Breakdown is somehow looking more like an off-road Tracks with each release!

As of toy fair, I was mostly interested in these for potential kitbashin' parts...but DAMN, that Shockwave has such a solid-looking alt mode that I may have to get extra to keep one complete!

I had almost forgotten about these things. Still look terrible.

Seems so, just in grey and with a proper face.

Well, for one, they all look like Bionicles rip-offs. >:oP

Agreed, I can't find a single appealing thing about these that make me want to throw away money on them.

Though I don't collect them, I'd rather hasbro create more kreo transformers, the ones I do have are pretty sweet.

This leads me further to my assumption that Hasbro will be releasing the Stunticons.

Botcon set
Slowly using Stunticon Names over the years as they require them.
(Menasor, Drag Strip, Breakdown, Wildrider(Takara)/Break-Neck, Dead End, Motor Breath)
BotShot set
All of these and plenty more I don't feel like describing.

Just wait. Make my words, we will see more of these guys soon. Botcon & SDCC will bring fantastic news!

I had started to get used to Dead End being completely different every time he popped up, a bit weird seeing the Prime version of all things getting a second toy of sorts. As he is one of my favorite toys, I hope he gets more homages down the line; a repaint of Legion Wheeljack is a no-brainer, but a Kreon or even a Classics version would also be fun (if perhaps under a different name, I do kinda want to see the original Dead End appear there, too.)

Shockwave has two hands.

Well, I won't be buying him then.

When was it said Shocky can't have two hands?
Worst excuse ever.

There are better reasons not to get this Shockwave. Like not caring for the overall aesthetic.

But really.. Animated Shockwave had two hands too. did you skip that one because if it? (And if you did, you're missing out.)

Yeah, I don't like the overall aesthetic of this line. They seem a tad disproportionate to me. The Prime homages are always welcomed, though.

i kind of like shockwave but i dont know im still not feeling these guys. I guess playing with bionicle figures back in the day spoiled me.

Yes, they do. They share a similar aesthetic.

It's an unwritten law, as declared by Geewunners.

You're telling me that this...



...looks nothing like this?



They're definitely Bionicles rip-offs. The only difference between the two is that the Constructbots are beefier and have characteristics shared by well-known Transformers characters and vehicles.

And check this out: when the Constructbots are armorless...



...boom, instant Bionicle with a Transformer head. >:oP

I don't have much interest in this line at all, but Shockwave might be worth getting.

Wow, I think Shockwave's alt-mode leaves me thinking what could have been for Generations/PBH. Are you listening HasTak?? :-x :VEHI:

Actually they're more in line with LEGO Hero Factory. Similar system. Base skeleton and armor parts are separate.
