Call me picky but Darkmount is a just a big ball of fail because of those "ankles".

Or maybe I should call it an achilles heal? Either way, target that spot and boom, down he goes.

Alt modes aren't too crash hot either.

I do like the look of Insecticon, and Sidearm Sideswipe should have been black with red flames. :P

i hope that insecticon mold gets a repaint into waspinator.
also, that voyager prime looks very good, almost a downscaled leader prime.
the power core combiners have a cool gimmck but dont really look cool to me.

Is it just me, or is Elita-1 just a Chromia repaint?

Dammit Hasbro you lazy douchebags, you might as well buy a second Chromia if that's the third bike. >:V

"--Almost all of Activision's War for Cybertron line is proprietary, which means that Activision owns most, if not all, the products"

Makes me nervous...


No need to be nervous, all this basically means, to my understand from class that is (I'm a business major so if I'm wrong please feel free to correct me) is that while Hasbro owns the rights to the Transformers brand, Activision owns the rights to War for Cybertron because they created it. All the designs are their own. So they pretty much have creative control over the War for Cybertron line. It's not like the Transformers and Transformers Revenge of the Fallen video games that were created using the movie and toy designs, this is the toys are being based off of the video games designs that are for the most part creations of the artist and designers at Activision. Again, if I'm wrong please feel free to correct me.

As far as the rest of everything goes... kinda tired of Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide, Optimus Prime, Sideswipe, and Ravage repaints and resizes. I mean come on, just how many versions of Bumblebee and Optimus do we have already??? :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

RotF: The new molds and repaints for the Scout Classes, Deluxe Classes, and Voyager Classes look great... particularly Brimestone, Jetblade, Hailstorm, and Sea Spray, who I still think is more deserving of being in the Generations line than RotF. And Elita-1 being black? I thought the third bike clone, I'm going by the movie on that classification, was suppose to be purple? But then again, It does leave room for a... you guessed it... repaint for Flareup or even Moonracer.

Generations and Power Core:Love the Scout Class Commanders, not too sure on the Combiners. The Scout Class Commanders in the Combiners looks good, but I'm not too thrilled about Legends Class limbs. In my opinion the Legends Class lack detail. But this is just a personal preference. Glad to see were finally getting Thrust, now it's only expected with the trend in repaints that we'll probably see Thundercracker and Dirge in future waves. Drift is pure win, period, end of discussion. :APPLAUSE: Darkmount looked like a resize of RotF Bludgeon at first but I like the wheeled front end. And Blaster!!! About time... now Soundwave finally has his rival.

So far the new Generations line looks promising, RotF, I might get a few of them but I stick mainly to characters that were in the films unless the molds/repaints are just worth having.

I'm hoping that's a joke slide, it just has to be, I did not wait like almost half a year (Or however long it's been since the first toys appeared) to have the third bike to be a repaint of Chromia. It's like waiting for the Super Mario Bros. movie and finding out it's terrible.

Elita is very disapointing.
No new mold, and isn't even the right color...
Sigh... at least that new Voyager Optimus is win.

Insecticon! I WANT IT! And Straxus, I want that too. Awesome! :KREMZEEK: :CON:

I dunno... I think its a new mol... a differ... ahh damn, you're right.

but is this wg=hat we get instead of Flare-up? Or as well as Flare-up? If the former, it seems a bit lazy, I'm wondering what the combined form is going to look like. I have 2 Chromias and an Arcee so i guess i'll start fiddling with them.

Looking forward to PCC, I can't even tell you. I'll get them all! And all subsequent repaints as well!

Mkall's thoughts on everything. I've spent so much time posting, and editing news today I haven't had much time to tell people what I think of it all.

Legends
Ravage, Long Haul and Rampage are all easy passes. They just do not work for me at all.
Sandstorm is a big yes. I love Legends Beachcomber so I'll love this guy too.

Scouts
Hubcap is a maybe. I think the robot is a little too ROTF-y for my liking. That'll most likely change as I see more.
Brimstone looks like a walking Skeleton. At first I hated it, now I'm not so sure...
Crackstart is a must buy! I think he looks a lot like RObotMasters Wrecker Hook
Backfire is a pass. I have enough of the Reverb mold thanks
Insecticon is different enough that I'll probably buy it and all the eventual repaints.
Breacher is a good solid fig, and the fact that he's been developed to work with Sea Spray is a major plus in my book.

Deluxes
Ironhide, Bumblebee, Jetblade, Sea Attack Ravage, Sidearm Sideswipe, and Elita-1 are all passes.
Drift, Darkmount and Hailstorm are great figs IMO and will be picked up on sight.
I'll have to see pics comparing Thrust to Henkei Thrust before I commit.

Voyagers
Sea Spray is a big yes
Night Ops Ratchet is a big no
Payload I'll most likely get because soon I plan to blitz-buy all the ROTF Constructicons.
Battle Blades Prime is a no.

Leaders and Others
I have no use for either Leader SS or a horribly painted Prime
I don't collect Human Alliance so I won't start with Jazz, although the weapon-to-bike is creative
Battle Ops Bumblebee is a waste of Hasbro's time IMO.

Power Core Combiners
I could say I hate this or I like that, but when it finally comes down to it, I'll probably get the entire line. Some figs are definately better than others though. It does annoy me that the Gestalt limbs don't transform, but I'll probably just treat the limbs as Energon Prime treated his limbs; as drones. Not entirely sure what the Rallybots or Destructicons are, but I'll probably get them too.

Exclusives
I have no interest in either MP Grimlock or SDCC Blaster. That means one more for one lucky fan.

These are Mkall's thoughts. He has spoken.

Straxus looks pretty damn nice. Loving that pickaxe of his.

Also interesting that Hasbro have trademarked the name Hailstorm, as far as I know, this is a new name right? I'm hoping it means a Universe Starscrem/Ramjet repaint into Hailstorm along with a Sunstorm to finish off my Decepticon airforce :)

I have to agree on the Elita-1, really disappointing.. heres hoping Takara would give us a proper bike if Hasbro decides to not give us the proper one.. and after waiting for so long it better be purple and is able to combine.. Its the 1st and only reason I bought them (chromia & Arcee) for.
Re: Toy Fair 2010: Presentation Screenshots of SDCC Blaster, Straxus, Masterpiece Grimlock and more! (1047028)
Posted by kirbenvost on February 14th, 2010 @ 3:28am CST
What, Grimlock looks exactly the same? AND he has the crown? :BANG_HEAD: Oh well, I'm just glad my Takara one was a gift.

Can't say there's much here that interests me. I wonder if Hasbro is moving away from G1 more and in a direction I'm not really interested in?

I guess time will tell.

Wow, they give us that that new Optimus Prime after countless repaints of that last terrible mold.

Can't wait for Straxus........

Excited for MP Grimlock -but worried about it being a TRU exclusive. 1) the price will definitely be gouged as opposed to Wally or Target, (2) this will be scalped in most areas as soon as it comes off the truck -most of us who want it fast better pray that it's available online. Much rather have it a wally exclusive -& hopefully it's not more than $70.
As a sidenote for SW collectors - The Legacy Collection Expanded Universe wave (arguably the most anticipated wave of 2010 w/TFU Shaak Ti, K'Kruhk, Jason & Jaina Solo, darktrooper etc), will not be at all retail, only TRU as an exclusive. Again, will be extremely hard to find as the TRU employees & scalpers disintegrate them before they reach the pegs. SO THIS TRU EXCLUSIVE SH*%& is REALLY PISSING me OFF!!!!!! The Grimlock may not be as bad, since it's expensive, but it won't be released in large quantities --but these SW figures, believe me, will be a mother%^^*&*er to find.
I already have Blaster from when i was little. Great condition. I just want the tapes. (Ramhorn, Steeljaw & Rewind) I doubt anyone will just want him & not the tapes, if u r that person, please PM.

Posted by Mechastrike on February 14th, 2010 @ 7:38am CST
is Darkmount a Decepticon or Autobot? i mean i'm just curious. he looks cool. Hailstorm looks like Cybertron Scattershot w/ a twist of movie Brawl but also cool.

and they said Elita-1 was gonna be cancelled. :P i keep asking when is she gonna come out and "they" said she was cancelled. anyways i need a Moonracer to my Classics Powerglide so i guess she'll do. please don't slam me. :-(

I have had a look at these pictures and all the others and there is so much good stuff, and I don't know were to start, I either need to win the lottery or rob a bank.

Straxus is pretty cool. May be the only figure I get out of the line.

Interesting that the Japanese ROTF Ravage repaint is essentially being released as Sea Attack Ravage.

More interesting that the TRU MP Grimlock gets the King Grimlock crown. Guess I just have to stop rushing out and buying the Takara version of these figures. Patience appears to pay off.
