Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

I agree 100%! I really hope there's someway to merge that ax with the sword and hopefully the other melee weapons to make a super sword of sorts.

It's very possible the figure isn't transformed correctly. Not the first time that's happened in the Transformers or any other line!

Silverbolt and Prime are in stock right now as well. I want to order them but I refuse to pay more than suggested retail. Honestily I feel suggested retail is a bit much anymore.

What does the rile with the arrow circling away signify? is it supposed to be some form of transforming weaponry which never came to fruition?

I got the first wave of Deluxes yesterday, and they are pretty nice. The vehicle modes are pretty simple looking, but they're big and fairly chunky, which is a nice change from the smaller Deluxe toys we've been getting the last few years. They feel pretty solid, although the legs are pretty thin. They look nice, they look fairly stocky, but they still feel real thin and cheap. The hand pieces are going to look nice in gestalt mode, but the feet are unbelievably stupid and tiny.
Drag Strip is nice, but that HTS Drag Strip Mirage repaint is far and away a better stand alone Drag Strip.

I like them, but I got them at Target for $12 each. There is no chance in the world they are worth $17 from TRU.

I just like the darker purple of the Classics Dragstrip figure better. Plus he's more poseable. Either way, I'm excited about Combiner Wars. :D

Interesting pic. It's a shame because I quite like the look of this Megatron, it's just the size I'm not so sure about. I know people get put off by the tank treads on the back, but I actually liked that in his IDW comic design. Besides, as much as I do love the G1 Megs I always found it stupid that he was a gun. A tank makes a whole lot more sense to me. Even Galvatron's cannon made more sense than a poxy gun! I just don't want Megatron standing at equal height to Jetfire and dwarfing Classics Prime.

Also, I'm still holding out on Menasor until I see some pics of him without the god awful car-in-chest thing going on. I know Ultra Prime has been done with the chest cavity closed so I hope it looks okay for Menasor. I guess I can live with the head sculpt...for now.

I'm excited for this Megs. IT might stop me from paying way to much scratch for a Henkei version. I think I could be happy with this new one and my Classics Nerf Blaster.

The whole size discrepancy just reinforces the notion of the heroes going up against unbeatable odds. David beat the snot out of Goliath.

Exactly! Even the first live action movie knew that, for dramatic purposes, a larger/more powerful villain makes for a more earnest struggle for the heroes. Animated followed the trend, with the Decepticons by and large DWARFING the Autobots in size and firepower, so they had to be clever to take them down.

You do know the original Menasor has a car for a chest plate? It was meant to be a drone for Diaclone figures. Also Menasor looks the way it does because the classic design has always been 4 cars slapped to a torso rough like
