I swear, I feel that they're just trying to set themselves up for failure with ending the PrimeBeast Hunters line.

Hope be has some voice clips actually recorded by Will Friedle.

Not being ungrateful, as we ARE getting Metroplex, but shouldn't this effort be devoted to a new, I don't know, Trypticon?
I get that "kids love Optimus and BB!!!! ", but in the simpler times of yesteryear, you would get far more excitement over a giant T-Rex TF that could turn into a city. Guess Hasbro knows kids better than anyone, and surely these will not warm the shelves into Xmas and beyond. Surely.

Why would he not? He's gonna speak in the cartoon, he's remolded head with a mouth, and they've made other talking TF toys in the past.Metrosuplex wrote:BB doesn't really "talk", does he? The title is misleading. If the toy had some voice clips, that might be interesting...

Reminds me of that conversation with Sabrblade about a green Optimus.
Bumblebee is very cool looking.

That Bee is awesome looking! I have the original Weaponiser Bee and I love it. There's high chances I'll buy it. However, what will it say? Bee-boop-pip-bee-bop?

My bad! The box adverts mention the talking. Why my doubt? Well, Optimus doesn't talk.
I was also going to ask how many TF's in that scale have actually talked in the past.
So it's a bit out of left field, IMO - but I understand: the focus on BB's speech event in Prime. Personally, I just don't see how BB talking is a great way to end the show... but I guess I can only be amazed (at this point) by either fantastic writing or amazing self-confidence from the writers. The writing has been quite good in the past, but sometimes when you slip, you fall hard on your face.

There's doubt that the toy will 'talk'?

So far the BH line has been a big 'no thanks' as far as I'm concerned. Thank goodness they made the beast armor for shockwave optional.

Not if you read my second post (which mentions the advert before your gratuitous cropping! ).
EDIT: Sorry, that looks like an official Seibertron pic. So no credits to you!
