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.

[quote]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.[/quote]

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!

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

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.

Those package bios are reeaaaally boring.

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.

Please read the news headlines for more information.

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.
