If we're really lucky, when we eventually get an official Defensor, Groove will have changed into something less ridiculously undersized than a motorcycle.

Nice but no. I have full confidence in Hasbro that we will see a proper Defensor within the next few years

This is terrible. I have the GDO Hot Spot using the Inferno mold that actually LOOKS like Hotspot, and they're having combiners of Menasor and Superion, but not this? I agree with the poster that said that if they had just given Ratchet and Prowl different heads it would work wonders, and I'd be on board with that, as I love that TFP Ratchet mold, but come on Hasbro.. not even combining, and with 1 from a movie line, 1 from a voyager classics mold, 2 from a deluxe prime mold, and 1 from a cyberverse prime mold? COME ON..

I really like these and can't wait to get them.

I like that Groove isn't that different from Arcee. It's almost like Hasbro knows that there's a lot of people with three different molds/retools of a deluxe blue Arcee from TFP so that they can take one of them and use it in place of the Cyberverse figure they're providing if it bothers them so much. Not to mention that it seems Hasbro has some kind of inkling that some people own a blue firetruck and many red/orange rescue helicopters already and decided not to make more.

Not that I own any of those figures I alluded to other than FE Arcee but you know, many many others do. That might be why I like these more than others as I only own Smokescreen and Flamewar out of all of these molds and don't even have any of the myriad of stand-ins for any of these characters but that's neither here nor there.

I get the hate over Smokescreen's missile net thing and all but I actually like the armor and would've liked to see it on Streetwise and Prowl. It IS optional after all and you don't need to display them with it but it's just nice to have for those who would want to.

As a hardcore collector of every releases of the Classic Infreno mold, It's my duty to buy the Evac/Hotspot 2 pack.

Anyone know if it's Asia exclusive or if they'll release them in Canada? Not as a "screw you Quebec" exclusive I hope?

Is there a significant difference? If the differences are barely noticable, I'll stick with just rapints/remold. Beside, the Grapple remolding needed that repaint badly so I'm all over the voyagers set!
_-looking at wiki-- Hmmmm... That inferno Henkai may be worth it. As for Grapple... Just a yellow head? Meh...

Now, where the hell is the Grapple repaint of HAULER?

I'll pass on that Grappel because the differences are way too small... for now...

I may have a chance to have a MISB Henkei Inferno for 40$ locally so I'll try to buy it for sure! Henkei Inferno is totally different from the original and well worth it.

So the colors are sort of based on Guard City. Well I guess that's ok.

Fellow Seibertron.com board member chuckdawg1999 is at it again, sharing a video review with us, and it's an early look at the inevitable black repaint of an Optimus Prime figure into.. Transformers Generations Legends Nemesis Prime! Complete with Targetmaster Spinister, from the Legends Bumblebee pack, check the video out below.

While these are straight repaints of wave 1 figures Hasbro switches things up by swapping Targetmasters. Nemesis Prime gets a repaint of Blazemaster done up like Spinister complete with spinning rotor blade of doom. I've always been a fan of this mold and really like how it pops in black with teal highlights.

Odd that we're getting in-hand images and reviews of Nemesis Prime and Cliffjumper, but nothing on Gears and Acid Storm. :-?

I was thinking the same thing. Do we know which were supposed to come first?

To the best of my knowledge, Gears and Acid Storm come first. However, in earlier waves, I found Tailgate before I laid eyes on Cosmos or Swerve.

Yeah, tell me about it. I found Shrapnel and Tailgate the day I went to see Age of Extinction, and I've yet to even find one whiff of Cosmos and Swerve. :-(

Another point, Nemesis Prime and Cliffjumper are numbered Series 02 18,19... Did I miss some figures?

That's nice and all... as long that you are American. The rest is screwed and us Canadian get slapped a 30$ of BASE shipping fee. Which mean it's 30$ plus X$ per figures. Also, they add taxes on top of your order!
So, pass.

Welp, I was going to order Rattrap, but shipping was $33.00 to Ontario. So, eff that noise.

Looks like I won't be able to get Amazon Slog either.

That would be odd, could I see pics of the inserts? The last two releases, Skrapnel and Tailgate, were numbers 007 and 008.

Holy nonsensical numbering! Maybe they screwed up and numbered them in series with the Deluxe Figures? Tankor, Rattrap, and Crosscut are 15-17.

Now that I have Classicverse versions of Rattrap, Rhinox, Cheetor, and Dinobot, I want to get the United Optimus Primal repaint just to round out the cast. Except that's an expensive import and I already have the Cybertron version of the mold.

Hmmmm :-?
