After having seen the gallery... thanks, but no thanks.

They're ok, but I prefer mine the way they are.

I quite like Slicer. Not sure about the rest. Don't think I'll bother with ridicushipping charges to get them.

Hell why not...These will help me keep my mind off of the FOC figures I just wasted money on..

So...
Wheeljack is Slicer
Bumblebee is Goldbug
Starscream is Skywarp
Megatron is Galvatron/Shadow Strike Megatron
Optimus is styled like that Deluxe DoTM Walmart exclusive Optimus (I forget the name)

Who is Knockout supposed to be?

And these all feature boatloads of transparent plastic, yes?

Translucent Skywarp is a must. Hopefully they're a bit over priced so I'm not tempted to get them all.

I think Skywarp is the only need to get. Prime Looks Lame as hell. Maybe Megs, he ain't bad.

Count me in for a Knockout and Wheeljack. Very cool deco. Not fussed about the rest.

Now to wait for the preorders.

I will be buying all of these for sure. Even with th blurry pictures I can tell these are going to be sweet. Excellent choice on BBTS's part. These are going to sell like crazy. Hell they might even be able to get Hasbro to do another set later, so we all can have a Dark Energon wave 2, with other characters.

The choices of colors and translucent plastics is just the bomb.

Don't be turnin water into wine here... Slicer and Skywarp might sell well but the rest look like they might end up like the Seacons

They're nice, but they're not essential...except maybe Knock Out?

Would you consider them to be like a 'Shattered Glass' Prime line?

a wise pro-wrestler once told me, and the world, that it doesn't matter what I think.

if you think they'd be cool as a SG Prime line, and fancy getting them because of it, go for it. sounds like a good idea.

So what's going on with the red and green Knockouts? which ones gonna be the exclusive?
I hope it's the green one i'll take it he's a Crumplezone homage if not he will be and Slicer is looking pretty good too plus that Megatron is the only version of that figure i like .

I'm pretty sure they're all exclusives and that the green one is the one we're getting. The red one was just a preview/mockup that isn't going into production as I understand it.

Cheers for clearing that up guys . i'm definitely getting Slicer and Crumplezone (he will be my homage any way) due to the fact his DOTM speed stars trans scan series toy has clear green plastic.

These look pretty spiff. I'm thinking the deluxes will stand with Thundertron as his pirate crew.
