The color of Skystalker's wings looks different.

Well, the show was kinda asking for it with that new deco it gave him.

Though, I'm sure many would have preferred the non-BH PRID mold or even the FE mold for maximum show-accuracy.

I was hoping that the 16th deluxe figure would be the Jet Vehicon :sad:!

Is that a repaint of Skystalker, or just terrible color-correction in that image?

Terrible color correction. That Bumblebee is the final 16th Deluxe in the lineup, so no more figures until a new line.

Prowl looks beast!!!

Then again, it's not the best quality. If they put the CGI's head on that toy, I'll be game, as it seems they got the shoulders, arms and legs rather accurate (minus the torso unfortunately).

Bumblebee was unnecessary, but at least we get a semi-show accurate S3 Deluxe Bee. Was hoping that slot would be given to Ser-Ket. Oh well; it's up to you now, Takara.

We're never getting a Ser-Ket. :sad:

No more figures, or just no more new molds? I can't believe they won't roll out some repaints.

Is the "next line" the new Generations and/or 30th Anniversary figures?

Bumblebee, as usual, is certainly a pass.

Prowl, on the other hand... I want to see more of him before I make a decision. :-?

16 Figures. No more.

Who knows? "Predacons Unleashed"? Personally I believe that's the name of the Abominus gift set and not a sub-line imprint, but I could be wrong.

What I mean is... when you say "No more figures until a new line..." aren't we already in the middle of a new Generations line? Didn't the "next" line start already?

I meant a new Prime line or sub-line.

I think they're done with Prime and moving on to the next portion of the Aligned continuity. This is sort of saddening for me, as I absolutely adore the Prime design aesthetic.

* Clearly. Because if you did, you'd notice the astounding lack of Bumblebees on retail shelves, and the clogging of shelves given to the likes of the Predacons, Smokescreen, and Bulkhead.

Looks like Prowl will be my last Prime figure barring any really nice repaints. I will order him when he pops, and the Ultimate Class Predaking... I need a monster to have them battle after all.

Wait, Smokescreen and Bulkhead are out now? All I ever see is mostly Lazerback, accompanied by very few Wheeljacks and maybe a Soundwave.

The only reason BB was clogging the shelves is because hafl of each goddamn cases were filled with BBs and he was in each waves.

If that BB is only one per cases, it will be fine.
Beside, I dont plan to buy the regular BH BB but I'll be sure to buy this stealth version for a Bee that is completely different than the rest of my collection.

That is, if each waves come out at a regular speed in Canada, unlike the retarded way PRID deluxes camout out. (PRID deluxes wave two just barely made it in Canada! And there's not much on the pegs.)

I'd have rather seen a repaint of a mold that's only been used once, not, what is it, 5 times the BB mold's been used (PRiD, Hot Shot, Dark Energon, BH, and that grey one). I know the show gave a reason, but it'd have been neat to see an "elite white/silver" Vehicon or Skyquake or Ser-Ket or someone more interesting.

And a white repaint of a white toy, hrm... I kinda want some kind of Barricade to go with this Prowl.

We already got a Dreadwing, and yet, there he is again in Deluxe form. Might as well get his bro out there again, and hopefully make that mold look less........ that...

For a moment there, I though I completely misremembered his name.

Seeing that BB really annoys me as I have the first BH one. While Prowl would be expected to be white, he makes the fourth autobot in this line and the fifth if you count BH Wheeljack.
I find it a bit hard to believe that this wave 5 is the end of the line. Though, wave 4 has yet to be released. It's possible, but still unlikely enough.

Guess I go to the customs, then. Those guys can probably gouge us for a Ser-Ket repaint.

I'm honestly surprised, as it's just a straight redeco. Best bet is to see her (and some of the other repainted/retooled Predacons) fill out future waves of toylines, either in Generations or whatever the successor to Beast Hunters ends up being...

...wow, I dashed my hopes before I'd finished hoping.
