Just another lame gimmick that looks like crap. These things are more annoying than Kreons.

Just release the IDW Generations figures already!

Least half the wave one look decent.

SKYQUAKE?!?!?! :shock: :shock: :shock:

I think the bigger news is how the heck the photographer found a SKYQUAKE! :BOOM:

I'm a bit on the fence on these Bionicle TFs. :-? To be fair, though, I wasn't a fan of the Kreon's either! >:oP

dear god $25, i was on the fence on a few of these guys but that price just pushed me over to the pass side. For $25 you can get a kick ass lego set

Yeah... that's AWFULLY expensive for what I'm assuming is the equivalent of a mid-size Hero Factory set. $15-18 would be reasonable, but $25 is WAY too much. Look forward to seeing these on deep discount though. :lol:

The Skyquake wave has been showing up at TRU however he is one per case and goes extremely fast. I Found one last week at my local TRU.

Wow, they're popping up already? I'm not too keen on them, but I'd like to see them in-person to see what they're like.

Have we seen any good size comparison shots?

From what I've seen before, I might be willing to pay about $10 for these. $25 is plain nuts. I see another year of well-stocked TJX stores ahead.

I can live with that. :grin: Especially if the parts are good and versatile~

Oh hey, Vange1us, you just made me happy with your showfloor demo!

After going Lego, Transformers go full Bionicle?
I will be okay with that once they hit the innevitable clearance sales at Winners.

I was lucky enough to pick up 2 Triple Changer Construct-Bots Bumblebees and one Blitzwing at the TRU in Lombard. As a added bonus, picked up Skyquake and Masterpiece Thundercracker.

Saw both of these guys yesterday.
Blitzwing looked cool, especially as a triple changer, but I am hesitant due to the price point.

Just to be clear I own them they can only be in one mode at a time. Either tank or jet parts on the figure so if you have to swap off parts it's a parts changer. And the video you are talking about showed wheel jack not a triple changer.
