Check the images out below, taken at the display area at the event, and compare them to previously seen in-package and in hand shots here - what do you think? Are you excited for the release? Let us know in the discussion in the Energon Pub!

Brawl is growing on me. That Megatron is an absolute must.

The SS line has really rekindled my appreciation for some of the movie designs.

The Megatron is really growing me. I'm not 100% sold on Brawl (Devastator XD) but.... I think like I caved on Starscream in person... something will happen with Brawl.

I still can't bring myself to buy Ratchet though. I know folks keep saying his paint is sufficient in vehicle mode, but robot mode (and especially his face) feel so... bland.

Him and Jazz are the next ones that I'm gonna get at FULL price when they hit selves. So far I got Thundercracker, Starscream, and Grimlock. ALL paid full MSRP. It's been a while since a series made me buy everything full price. I usually wait until a sale or clearance before I buy...............

I want Jazz very muchly too but not sure I should buy him at same time as Megatron or something may happen like for example open the box to find Megatron has gotten out of his packaging and ripped Jazz in half. :O

Smyths sell Voyager Prime and Starscream in stores. And yeah £52.99 with free delivery for Grimmy was cheapest i could find.


Well I stand corrected, hmm getting to my local symths is a pain but been a while since I've physically hunted for anything. I know others aren't fond of him but I like prime.

As for these new pictures...why are they trying to make me get these toys when I want all of them but can only afford a few :BOOM:

Prime certainly has flaws but I do like it (especially after I've begun customising it somewhat). Even having got a (likely an incredibly good KO going by the price) Revenge Optimus Prime (Takara repaint of the old Battle Blades Voyager figure) this week I still like SS Prime a lot too. Revenge looks immediately more accurate (especially since it's far better painted) but there are some things it does better and some that the SS figure does better. Also I find the SS figure feels more solid and less fiddly than the Revenge figure can be. I'm glad to have both though.

And yeah I've not actually seen a Smyths shop myself and still hoping one moves into the closed Toys R Us building in Cambridge but a friend of mine I talk to about toy stuff on DeviantArt (I wish he'd get a twitter or instagram set up cos i barely use DA these days) mentioned them being in there and buying some and they are both on the Smyths website too (as is the 10th Anniversary version of the 2007 Leader Prime curiously enough). Out of the actual physical shops left in UK that sell Transformers, Smyths do seem to be among the best, if not the number one. Don't know if they'll stock Studio Leaders though.



Their website has a Studio category and also £5 off when you spend £20? That sounds too good to be true.

cheeky using a Starscream stock photo where he has the buzzsaw this version doesn't have. :O

TBH, the problem with Hasbro's grey plastic is that it isn't grey- it's mock silver. It uses a faux-metallic look that results in a very soapy, semitranslucent finish. Had TR Megatron used a proper flat grey I'd have bought it, but that mock silver was so awful I couldn't stand the sight of it.

I liked the grey on TR Megatron, except the chest grey which seemed a bit off compared to the rest of it. Which doesn't matter since I silver sharpied it anyways. Still the only G1 Megatron figure I've liked enough to have in my collection for a decent amount of time. :P

Honestly guys, nothing will be as bad as that dull as fuck "grey" plastic on Gen Power Master Optimus Primal. As long as it is an actual grey colour, I think its ok. Grey Plastic could look awesome, like on AOE Slog.

Oh yeah, that Slog looked awesome. Helps as you say it was actual grey as opposed to "Totally silver guys".

Speaking of the Movieverse Dinobots, I can't be the only one who wants redecos of SS Grimlock and whatever other Dinobots we get in sort of "fossilized/bone" colours right?

So I picked these fellas up today:



Seeing Stinger in hand, I decided he wasn't a memorable enough character that I should worry about him. So glad i waited to see him in stores to make that decision.

As for these 2. My Bee is plagued with the falling off roof, and ratchet has a loose left hip. But both are pretty good in their own ways. This is my first actual properly colored Ratchet, since I only have the RotF Desert Tracker voyager. And He's good! I like him, and his size will make him go good with some recent figures. Planning to do a bot group shot eventually with figures more in scale with each other.

Bee is alright too. I won't be getting the TLK one till next month, so this is my first exposure. I like how accurate he is, and he doesn't have much kibble. He's a bit fiddly, but still alright. Alt mode is sweet.

it also struck me funny that Ratchet was the rare one. I picked up the only one of him I saw. I saw the other 3 deluxes and both voyagers at 3 different stores, but only saw a single Ratchet at Target, where I got him and Bee.

Aw, [spoiler]as gut-wrenching as that was, he'll definitely be among those whose snapping is undone. No way would Marvel allow their most iconic superhero to be killed off after just three movies of him still being in his rookie stage.[/spoiler] ;)

Emerje@ :lol: touche' my friend

Spidey also has another film due out in the next couple of years...

What's the transformation like for these guys? Is ratchet's the same as his previous deluxe versions?

[spoiler]They already ruined him in those films anyways so I wouldn't mind yet another reboot...Anyways this not a Marvel topic[/spoiler]

Yeah Ratchet transforms basically same way as DotM mold but with a couple minor changes (like the wheels turning inwards on the shoulders to reveal more lights).

Came across this repaint on Instagram. Basically a much tidier version of what I was doing with my Ratchet figure. Very nice (though i think should have painted the crotch area silver like on the cgi renders I used for mine).
