I like how they gave Zarak the AKOM character model from The Rebirth and Mega Zarak the Toei character model from The Headmasters.

So, Earthrise Starscream is just an upscaled Classics figure?

Thank you, I'm glad I wasn't the only one who immediately saw pretty blatant similarity the "Classics" Seeker mold. At least now I know I don't have to get all new Seekers again next year.

Starscream's robot and alt models look amazing. Bought on sight.

I passed on the Combiner Wars leaders because I hate the fake cockpit chest, and after they announced the Siege seekers, I knew I wanted jet CHUGs. Over the last year or so I've collected the main six from eBay. Between those and the Prime Wars trilogy, plus Siege Shockwave and Megatron, I had the entire season 2 cast!

I can tell that starscream is not an upscaled classics mold
Yes it shares some similarities but it is different

Looks like we have a Titan Class Scorponok on the way...

I need a Titan class Scorponok in my life.

Finally Scorponok!

I don't care about the other rehashes from previous lines, the Final City Bot is almost here...

Scorponok will probably be the first city bot I won't get, mainly due to the fact I have the original and didn't have the others.

Still zarak looks lovely and nice to see they've done a cerebros on him (he's got a titan master head). It makes sense considering the others lads all do too in one form or another.

Getting VERY tempted by that unicron too. But man that's some hit to the wallet.

With all the originals done it makes me wonder what now for the class. Methinks we could get a massively upgraded certain phase sixer (overlord) or seeing as they're Doin bot mode micromaster bases a proper countdown.

I was talking to someone about these reveals and they were most excited for Hot Shot. They said it was "really cool to get something that wasn't G1 for a change". I wonder how many TF fans from the 35 years of various iterations of Transformers, feel the same way?

As I've said before, if HasTak really want to see if the Post-G1 fanbase is out there, release MP Demolisher or Hot Shot. Just to test the water. To see how receptive they are. I think the popularity of the Beast Wars MP line has shown not everyone wants endless homage to the first three years of the franchise. An era most fans of the past twenty years will have no association with.

^Armada Hot Shot is screaming for an MP. History has taught us the Deluxe Class cannot contain his kid appeal, er, shoulders.

Scorponok got me thinking about other not-yet-done Headmasters. I figure Snapdragon's a given and just a matter of time, leaving just the Headmaster Juniors. Then it gets me thinking about Masterforce and how many Powermasters already have updates. New Slapdash (looking at that Siege Mirage with a new head and some minor retooling), Joyride/Ranger, maybe a Doubledealer and those are handled as well under the recent Generations lines. Earthrise would be a good time for that, gets humans involved in its "story" in a fun way that we haven't seen 40 times already.
