For some reason, an Asian source has chosen to really squeeze out this leak of value chain simplified toys of limited articulation that would otherwise garner very little attention. But now the whole fan community is very intrigued by the toy representations of the new Evergreen designs Hasbro is now using. Below you can see the full reveal/leak of two of the four 4.5" simplified toys coming out in this line, Bumblebee and Optimus. These convert in about 4 steps. These images all come from the TFCN Facebook page.

Please tell me that two lines means centimeters and not inches

Inches.

This line will be AMAZING. For the little kids, of course. Because introducing young children to the classic designs of transformers can only be beneficial for the franchise's future.

... which is a good thing, because 1 inch is roughly 2.5 centimeters. So the figures will be roughly 11.25 centimeters tall, or right between current Legends and Deluxe Classes. By comparison, the Cyber Battalion figures with the same basic complexity are Voyager Class-sized.

I actually really like that Bee design. Wouldn't mind seeing it on a toy with the amount of effort that, say, RiD or Generations puts into theirs.

Inches, so these are basically oversized legion toys.

Totally agree! It's cool to see all the different design aspects from different Bumblebees. We get a robot mode more like the movie version with door wings, a G1-ish chest design and head sculpt, and the vehicle mode grill looks like it came straight from the TR figure.

Another thing to note: there's no line name to speak of, the "evergreen" designs are placed under the generic Transformers line, no subline what so ever. So, would this be TF 2017 now, after 2010 and 2014, or should we just forgo the years?

Best looking figures I've seen in years.

Trying to work out how Prime transforms he's a little more impressive than he appears. Sure, he doesn't have elbows, but his legs fold up rather than pull out so he does have knees. His arms pivot up from his waist to his shoulders which is more complex than you'd expect for a figure like this. I can't quite figure out where his head comes from, it might flip up from the real truck grill. It's a neat figure, the only thing I don't like (aside from the lack of elbows) is the front bumper sticking out from his hands.

Bee is alright too, the open windows are an interesting cost cutting choice, I like it.

While i like the look of these two, i do hope that these are not the toyline that will replace RID in 2018. They are nice for little kids, but they lack even elbow bend. I hope these oversized legends toys are not what replace the cool engineering that we get from RID.

They aren't dont worry. These are under the same generic "generations" banner as other toys that were unassociated to other lines. Since there isnt any actual show name on the cards, I am pretty sure this is not from whatever show comes after RID :)

I do hope that Grimlock figure is part of this value chain thing because that is too horrendous to be anything else :-s

Y’know, for the record, the bumblebee alt mode looks kinda like prime rumble. :-?

judging from how the packaging looks like, it is most likely part of this line.

Prime and Bee look crappy but that Grimlock on the previous page looks like a fun simple toy even if I just class it as an update of the old Pretender inner robot. One I'd probably have on the desk quite a lot.

The size is the thing that puts me off. Should have just made the legends. Also why does Bumblebee has cut out windows

Thanks to Weibo user 淘宝店变形金刚改造工厂 and found on the Planet Iacon Facebook page, we have new images of the upcoming Evergreen Transformers line, featuring new reveals Megatron and Starscream! These figures appear to be more streamlined and less clunky in their designs, and both appear to be better articulated than their Autobot counterparts. Check out these new Decepticons below, and let us know what you think of them in the comments section below!

I quite like that Starscream, actually. Might just go for it.

I will hold my judgement untill i saw their alt mode, but i like these two better than the autobots.
