That lunchbox is old news. Both versions, Autobot and Decepticon are absolutely kick-ass and well worth the $15.00 USD price tag they had on them at my local comic book shop but they certainly should not be listed as new products.

I'm just disappointed I didn't get one of them for Christmas since I had hinted HEAVILY that Santa should put those under my tree. ;)

The artwork is sweet and they would make great "Book end" pieces on any collectors shelf if you were to get both of them. Being a cynic and overly critical of just about everything it's not often that I would critique and endorse in a positive manner any type of product but I highly recommend these. I'll be picking up both when they come back in stock as I think they will provide excellent storage for the TF cards and other trinkets that will be coming out that I plan on picking up instead of throwing money at the craptacular figures that they are producing this year.

Is frustrating looking at all those classic g1 new toy lines coming over and over, but my legends/legion collection is still incomplete due to lack of production, even after 6 years when they started it with jazz and g2 megatron tank form... i quite dont unerstant their philosophy to never accomplish one line.

According to Mark Weber, the reason the Age of Extinction pteranodon is Strafe and not Swoop is because the two-headed design was deemed to be too much of a departure from traditional depictions of Swoop.

Huh. I wonder how they determine what is and isn't "too much of a departure". Having two heads is a bit tame compared to some of the other changes, not just in Movieverse but all over the franchise.

Am I the only one mildly disturbed by the fact that Construct-Bots Drift is the only version of him with the right colors? Yeah, I love those mini guys that can ride the dinobots. I can't wait to get my hands on them. Love the new packaging. Between the Masterpieces, Platinum Edition, and Age of Extinction their packaging is looking a lot better than it has been from the last couple of years. Happy 30th anniversary! Here's to another great 30 years!

Hasbro finally swayed me. The proto at NYCC was awful, and while this one at Toy Fair isn't perfect, the production figure is certainly far better than I expected. (I think a lot of people will admit it's at least better than what was shown at NYCC.)

The "skirt" pieces having movement and folding tighter against the sides instead of being a straight up shellformer is great. I'm still not a fan of the backpack. I think they could've folded it down a bit more at the very least. Like swivel the wheels in and push the gas tanks up a bit. While that won't get rid of the backpack, it would certainly cut down on it a good deal.

Still, I'm impressed. I'll buy it. It's definitely leaps and bounds better than the First Edition crap fest. Good grief.

Read thru this, a few thoughts:
- There's a ridiculous amount of Autobots in the AoE line, and very few Decepticons.
- Kre-O becoming a TRU exclusive makes me sad.
- The number of dinosaur-related product is obscene. Kinda surprised they went with it after all the dragons (which are sort of like dinosaurs) last year... yet we couldn't get all the Constructicons during RotF for whatever reasons.
- Kre-O TRU exclusive in the US, no more Beast Hunters in the US, combined with how other recent lines went (i.e. not in the US, but everywhere else) I think we Americans finally have a counter to "but it's so much more expensive here!" ;)

Whoa, whoa, whoa. This part is not true. Beast Hunters is not canceled and no other lines have been canceled, either. The Generations Legends are still coming and Beast Hunters are still active in Wal*Mart's computer system.

Oh yeah because "accuracy" is always crap right? Honestly I cant see why people hate the First Edition so much. I bought it and other than the backpack and lack of articulation, the figure is awesome. The detailing of the plastic is much much more better than any Masterpiece I bought(And certainly much better than this Leader class figure), the paint apps look much better than the Leader class and honestly even the robot mode proportions look much better. The chroming looks much better than the plain silver and the head sculpt is just pure awesomeness

And yet here you are claiming that the First Edition figure is "Crap fest" and that the Leader class is "Leaps and bounds better". Please go check your eyesight sir or perhaps it's a brain issue? Just go see a doctor. Honestly speaking.

Fans are just haters I guess. Here Hasbro is trying to make a Movieverse figure look as accurate as possible to the actual on-screen Optimus Prime and of course fans still hate them because of the backpack =_=... I guess they just dont realize how hard it is to make a Movieverse figure look as accurate as possible.

Taking my opinion personally? Alrighty, then. (Not sure why, but... *shrugs*)
I fail to see how the First Edition is so accurate. Neither the main line figure or the First Edition are completely accurate. Both have ridiculous amount of backpack.

Getting real personal, now. Again, not sure why. It's certainly not necessary, nor is it welcome here. "How To Win Friends And Influence People" is a real book, find it and read it, learn from it. There's no need to be rude and offensive whilst offering your opinion on a product. Getting personal over an action figure, especially when a post wasn't aimed at you, is for lack of a better word, ridiculous.

As for it being a crap fest, I go by what others have experienced first hand:

- Hollow feeling and very light weight.
- Chrome rubbing off and fading.
- Weapons aren't always painted, and it's pretty much a game of chance to end up with painted ones as many people have come forward to complain about their weapons lacking paint apps. To the point that Amazon has begun reviewing the figure and pulled the regular packaging version from sale as of right now. Only their frustration free packaging version is available. (which makes no sense to me, since it's only the packaging that's changed, not the figure or it's accessories inside.)

I've heard several people, including a respected TF reviewer say it's not worth the money. With complaints that are legit, I've seen a specimen where the chrome rubbed off, and multiple cases of this all happening, why would I find it to be a superior figure? I might as well save $15-20.00 and buy a slightly more intricate version of the character, with less chrome to worry about!

It's unfair to assume that all fans are "haters" blanket assumptions like that are offensive and can lead to problems. Please don't use labels when speaking of others, nor should you speak for them. You wouldn't like it if they did it to you, don't do it to them.

Well, based on one crummy screengrab and a suspended twitter account, it's obvious that Galvatron is dead. It's not like Transformers ever APPEAR to be dead but then get revived or brought back somehow. There's no precedent for that, right?

Could be that Galvy's dead there.
Could be that Optimus got shot right before he could deal the final blow.
Could be a generic that reuses Galvy's foot (a bunch reuse Blackout's head, for example).
Could be a lot of things.

On the other hand, the ads for DotM did blatantly show Starscream and Shockwave's deaths, so I wouldn't be that surprised if they're doing the same with Galvatron.

Me too. There have been waves in the past that weren't officially canceled, but simply never showed up in stores. Especially later waves at the end of lines, which stores never order because they have no room on the shelves that are filled with unsold figures from the early waves. Sometimes they're not "officially" cancelled, but if they only show up in a few stores and most people can't find them, then it's effectively the same as being cancelled.

For all it's worth, Hasbro has said the latest wave of Generations Legends was under-ordered by retailers, and Beast Hunters seems to be biting the dust when it comes to the Deluxes and Cyberverse Classes. Hasbro is looking into a second run of Swerve and Cosmos, while investigating other venues for Beast Hunters.

That would mean they're not canceled, but merely postponed until deals have been finalised.

I hate yhr movies but ive always found at least one figure that was good, doesnt look like that this time around. Just have to wait & see what the next waves offer. Was there any talk on pricing? I dont see anything on the displays talking about release date or price points. Also have we found out yet who that silver cabover is? My money is on galvatron

The latest wave meaning Cosmos and Swerve. If the wave before doesn't move, well, no need to order more, right?

Either way, the result is the same. Whether it's because retailers didn't order the early waves (no demand) or because they ordered too much of the early waves (no shelf space), there's often some reason for Hasbro to not release the later waves and for stores not to order them. That's why we shouldn't count on these Gen Legends ever coming out.

I'm really actually very happy and surprised with how much I am liking the non-simplified generations movie line toys. I was really feeling like I'd be disappointed, but these make me look forward to the new movie so much more now. I just hope that they'll put in the line the toys from the previous movie line that didn't make it out. Leadfoot and Soundwave, I'm looking at you. I know WHY they made the Dinobots those colors, because if they were all just charcoal grey like in the movie, they'd look pretty bland, but I agree with other comments that it makes them look like Beast Hunters predacons. I still love them though. Slag was always my favorite. EXCUSE ME. lol.

all I can say is that too simple the toys are, the most boring they are.

I said it once, I'll say it again: transformers are 3 toys in one: an action figure, a vehicle (or object) and a puzzle. the puzzle makes the whole toy entertaining or boring.

Quite frankly, some of the deluxes look good. not excellent, but good.
At least there is a leader grimlock out there that has Some steps to transform him, instead of the one step thingy.

Optimus prime is the biggest lackluster of them all. The truck mode is absolutely gorgeous. the robot mode isn't good. Hell, the G1 themed one looks better than the leader class!

well I'll be very selective with this line... and with all that simplified crap they are pulling on us, goddamn it! we can all kiss the Human Alliance thing goodbye! :HEADHURTS:

They should have used his iconic alt mode and iconic face in the movies, to go with his iconic voice..

Not familiar with Size Class, how big or small is a "Leader Class" toy next to a Masterpiece?

In the film, Optimus takes on the form of a flatnose semi with flame deco and extensive rust. This toy is Hasbro's way of giving back, I think. G1deco, G1 style alt mode. I'm sold.

Well, not much we can do now. What's done is done. This is as close as we're going to get.

This figure ^ is Voyager Class. The chrome one standing next to Grimlock is the Leader Class figure. Most Leader Class figures stand about as tall as MP-10. Or around Soundwave's height. In that area.

You know, as interesting as Evasion Mode Optimus Prime is, the more I look at his pic, the stupider his gun becomes in my mind.

So, they made a gun with a realistic looking handle, with something resembling a trigger in front of it, and then put a 5mm peg under the obvious handle? So basically, the gun ends up looking like it is floating over his hand rather then being held by him?

Seriously?

This isn't a knock against the figure itself, mind you. This is possibly one of the best looking movie-verse figures ever, seriously making me reconsider having sworn off of movie-verse figures.

But man, what a dumb-arse design for the gun!

So, they made a gun with a realistic looking handle, with something resembling a trigger in front of it, and then put a 5mm peg under the obvious handle? So basically, the gun ends up looking like it is floating over his hand rather then being held by him?

Seriously?

That is DotM Megatron's shotgun you're talking about ;)

How so? Correct me if I'm wrong, but the DotM Megatron toy's weapon was a fusion cannon made from part of his trailer mounted tank. This is completely different.

In the DotM movie, Megatron had a shotgun that's similar in design to EM Prime's weapon. In fact, it has tabs so you can have DotM Megatron wield it.

Couldn't agree more. I've purchased maybe 3 movie verse figures since 2007, as they don't appeal to me, at all, and the ones we have were all gifts for my son for various occasions. This prime is indeed one of the better looking ones, and its even designed without half of his alt form attached to his back, a definite step forward. Most of these new movie verse figures look really good, even the dinobots have appeal.

So in other words, it's exactly like the G1 Optimus Prime toy gun. G1-accuracy for ya. :P

I'm happy with Grimlock and Strafe, the others are fugly. Drift is ok but not liking the color scheme.

Ha ha, ya got me there. Guess I forgot about that a bit because I've been using a third party gun with my G1 Optimus. (The one that came with the matrix and backpack thingy.)

Still, I think aesthetically speaking, the G1 gun pulls it off better. On this figure, it really makes the gun look like it is just floating above the figure. G1 Prime may be holding it funny, but at least it still looks like he's holding it.

Good, I thought I was the only one testifying about Drift's befuddling deco on a majority of his toys.


I dunno where people keep getting the idea that Drift's main colour is black. It looks like it in that first pic that Bay's site released of the car, but the Bugatti they used has a standard deco which is a very dark blue and teal. You can see by the dozens of photos that have been taken by people during filming (and even on the packaging and promotional artwork of the bot mode) that it's blue. Granted the blue they're using for most of the figures isn't nearly dark enough, but it certainly should't be black.
