Ugh. Probably wouldn't have splurged on Takara's heavily silvered Leader Prime if I had known about this:

So, do you think AoE Prime (the new design) will get a better toy than the Leader Class and First Edition ones in the not too distant future? (Considering the contrast between his new streamlined robot-body and the bulky Western Star semi, is it even possible?)
What can I say, I kind of wanted one after watching the movie but neither looks like they're worth it.

Also, any new detail about his Evolution 2-pack? (date/price/availability..)

It's the best we're going to get for a good while. Plus, the Movie line line will last only until the end of the year, so if you want to get a representation of Prime, either get them now or wait until the next movie.

by the by, Don't make the mistake of grabbing either the First Edition Prime, or its Platinum Silver Knight repaint.

Also, any new detail about his Evolution 2-pack? (date/price/availability..)


- Has Evasion Mode with added blue flame detailing, and Classics Voyager Prime.
- Both have chrome pieces
- Toys 'R Us exclusive like the other Evolution 2-packs.
- Expect it to be released late Summer/early Fall.

Apparently, kids hate buying villains.


Must apply to characters who are jerkholes, too, cause I keep seeing plenty of TF4 Autobots on shelves, too.

Don't be sorry, tell it like it is. They were bad/average molds to begin with. Maybe they are good to kids but the rest of us don't want that huge backpack on Optimus when he's "Extremely" streamlined in the movie. And Grimlock's dino mode looks like some weird disproportionate mutant lizard rather than a T-Rex.

i dont know why but i kinda like that high octane 1 step bumblebee, not sure if hes a must have but a clearance figure for sure. Steeljaw and slag on the other hand are must buy, just hope walmart keeps these guys at $8. Even chopper drift looks pretty good, reminds me of that one scout mold from energon, the names elude me at the moment. The rest is pretty much garbage, i dont think the AoE line is going to last very long. Its nothing more than repaints & 4 different versions of the same character.

Hasbro should divide the movie toy line in Adults and Childrens.
All mix it's not a good idea, because they don't do very detailed and complex toys, and in the same time, not so simple as might be.
It turns out that does not do very well in either sides.

I dont know if you guys noticed on the parts identification thread or the toy haul thread but I love buying used lots of transformer toys. I can just see the pain this will be in the years to come to try to weed out all these simpler more kid oriented toys from the others if I still buy lots then. I am already having a tough time with the fast action battlers so I can only imagine.

They already did, with the gimmicky "Robots in Disguise" toys and the more complex "Generations Series M4" for the older kids (8+ instead of the usual 5+) and collectors. The Generations toys are of the "traditional" style, including the Deluxe, Voyager and Leader Classes.

If Generations are meant to adults collectors why don't we have all the Decepticons in this Generations Line? It's so frustrating for me as a collector to have just Autobots. We deserve more respect from Hasbro.

And, no, we DON'T deserve anything from Hasbro. We are not their target audience. The fact that they're even bothering to think about us older fans at all is a generous mercy unto itself.

I for one want leader class lockdown, Galvatron and Junkheap. Junkheap should be leader so he can split into three deluxe sized drones. Lockdown should have a Deluxe sized vehicle mode and a leader sized robot mode, and have all his weapons and mask. Maybe we will get the Vehicons in later waves, of in the interim years.

They're there, but they're in later waves:

Voyager
Galvatron

Deluxe
Lockdown
Stinger? (details on him are iffy at best)

Remember, they only count when the robot mode appears in the movie.

I meant the human made Decepticons. Everyone was calling them Vehicons before the movie came out and it stuck with me, them being drones and all.

Having watched the movie twice, there are three things that those manmade TFs are called in the movie itself: "KSI's newest civilian prototype robots" (by a KSI staff member), "Prototypes" (by one of the main cast humans), and "Brothers" (by Galvatron). Surprisingly, not even the word "Decepticons" is used to refer to them.

Would that mean "Decepticons" is merely used as a Marketing tool? The faction is a lie! :lol:

Courtesy of Seibertron, we have in-hand images of the Stomp and Chomp Grimlock. This is a huge, 20" Grimlock figure with lights and sounds, and features a one step conversion and pop out weapons. Also included is a small Optimus Prime figure who can interact with Grimlock.

Check out pictures below, including a size comparison shot to a few other Transformers toys to give you an idea of scale! This is a pretty sizable figure.

Not even Galvatron is called a Decepticon in the movie. :P

If they must be called anything, best term to refer to them in general (meaning both before and after the climax of the film) would be "the Prototypes".

I know not always Galvatron is Megatron, but in this movie it is! Galvatron is Megatron so is the leader of the Decepticosn.
And He was the most evil in the first film as an Alien JEt, He was wicked.
I would love if they back His vehicle mode to some thing like that.
Is too boring an earth truck for Galvatron. This truck should have been Motormaster for sure.

People were overwhelming underwhelmed by the First Edition figure.

But, I can say the Leader Class OP is worth it. He's really nice and I'm happy with him.

Scorn looks pretty cool in silver, if that was the hasbro version id be tempted to get one. Strafe still looks terrible, i saw the hasbro one at walmart today & its worse in person. Even with a good paint job a bad mold is still a bad mold.

They need to separate the complex and better ones for adults, and make the same characters, in same class size, but in less complex versions to children.
Yes, is a dream. hahahaha :grin: :grin:
But in my opinion is the better way to satisfying all the fans.

I don't know if is my mind only, but in general the toys fell in complexity, even those targeted to adults or older kids.

Nope. We do get acknowledged by Hasbro, despite making up about... 5%-10%? And they do monitor fan sites, but that's it. All the collector-oriented stuff are still sold as "children's toys" for greater exposure, possibly leading to more sales. Convention Exclusives can be exempted, but overall, the real Collector's Items are done by licensees like FunPub.
