Hmm. I liked the looks of the Trans Scans figures I've seen, but haven't bought any. Just having a hard time buying molds and characters I already have just because they're done in 'process of scanning'. Heck, I guess I should break down and support the cause. Maybe next time I hit up a TRU.

Excited about Generation Junk Heap and Skyshadow! Dark of the Moon Soundwave and Wheeljack too!!

Something that may end up irking me, though. Human Alliance will apparently be getting the Wreckers movie trio of Roadbuster, Leadfoot and Twintwist?? I've already purchased Roadbuster & Twintwist in deluxe form since I liked the figures and they fit in nice scale to everything else I have. Is Leadfoot not getting a Deluxe now? Did we get screwed? Is there some guy at Hasbro constantly saying, "AHAHAHA, GOTCHA!"?

As for this "Cannon Force Ironhide", I can only HOPE AGAINST DUMB DUMB SHOULD-KNOW-BETTER-BY-NOW HOPE that he's finally given a proper red treatment. I still want to kick someone at Hasbro in the nuts as hard as I can for giving me three movie line's multiple upon multiple waves of toys and the only real option for a red movie Ironhide is a freakin' FAB figure. GRRRRRRR.

As for the Walmart Exclusive deluxe Optimus Prime; Is this figure selling elsewhere?? He's a crap figure imo, and locally he's as much a Shelf/Pegwarmer as Deluxe Ratchet ( :-( ) and that Twin (THAT one, rightfully so. stupid to try and sell him again).

Mostly? HYPED for the new Transformers Prime figures!! :grin:

But what's this semi-awesome news of a possible upcoming Evac toy??

I didn't think I could be any more stoked about TFP toys but I was dead wrong. I think all the toys capture their on screen counterparts well. They all look fantastic. If they're anything like deluxe SS, they are probably fun to transform too. This is shaping up to be a really promising toy line.

In general this has been a great day for news. After such a long TF drought, all this tasty info hits the spot for sure. The only problem? I have to be patient and wait for them to hit retail lol.

I can't wait to get the human alliance Soundwave. He and Laserbeak are going to look sweet together. I'm not sure if I'll get the deluxe version. I also want to get Unicron. Does anybody know when these guys are coming out?

Yes, Cannon Force Ironhide is red (mostly), and is awesome in my opinion. Everyone clamoring for a red movie Ironhide can now calm down. ;-) lol

We've already been told here on Seibertron in a previous news item that deluxe Leadfoot will be released with "Twin Twist," a redeco of Topspin.

No, DOTM Mirage wasn't shown. DOTM Wheeljack was shown, ugly head and all. I like the car and the body, so I'm gonna buy DOTM Wheeljack, but that head is being replaced. Ug.

Transformers the Ride Evac is a cool car and bot, in my opinion, and I am SO getting him. I think he would fit in with the Wreckers, but that's my opinion.

More Prime toys, like Deluxe Knock Out, Wheeljack, and Soundwave, as well as Voyager Skyquake.

Overall, pretty cool.

I was worried HA SW would only come with Dylan, glad to see he has both. Definitely need it for the in-scale LaserBeak.

Deluxe SoundWave disappoints me a little, that MechTech is HUGE meaning he'll probably end up shorter than Battle Blades BB which I want him to be taller than...hopefully there's some sort of height mod you can do. Besides that, his legs looked odd, but I still want to get it.

DOTM Wheeljack/Q looks...weird in my opinion, did he even look like that in the movie?
And no news of Mirage, NOOOO!!!!

Yeaaaahh Knockout! lookin good buddy.

I think i can really get behind the Prime toyline. Hope they don't skimp on the paint with this line either.

Voyager Starscream, Soundwave, Skyquake and Evac shall be BOUGHT ON SIGHT!

Knockout's a little iffy. Looks a a little chunkier and not as sleek as his CG.

wheeljack looks good, skyquake looks interesting, soundwave looks like crap, for some reason i like darksteel think its the blade,the EVACs might be cool depends on the coloring, the rest either suck or we've seen before.

Any images for Que, Dino or HA soundwave? Cant find em in the gallery.
Also, is Deluxe evac a Univeral studios exclusive? If it is im so going to TF the ride on launch date just to pick up that evac. Apparently the construction space here seems really tiny so im kinda expecting a turdy ride... >:oP

Posted by MINDVVIPE on July 22nd, 2011 @ 3:56am CDT
Well, guess i'm adding Evac and Skyquake to the list. Not really feeling that Wheeljack too much though, not sure why. I dig the vehicle mode, but the weapon storage on most of these prime figures seem atrocious so far.

Prime Deluxe Soundwave is an easy pass. I dont like the long slim arm look xD.

Oh and who is that CV vehicle in the 1,2 and I think third picture is o.O? They didnt say?

Knockout maybe I will buy depends on how he transform.

Wheeljack looks awesome with the two swords o.O...

Skyquake looks amazing. Everything about him just seems perfect :D.

BTW who is that blue bot in 48th picture o.O...He looks cool xD.

Legion Evac is meh. BTW is it just me who realized this that Deluxe Evac have the same leg design as Roadbuster.And that everything about him kind of similar to Roadbuster also...I think I'm gonna buy him for my "Wreckerfied Roadbuster" :D.
