I just hope it's not store-exclusive or online/pre-order business. Hopefully it'll just be at Wal-Mart as a regular toy line

... *panics* Im REALLY not sure how i feel about it.

a few figs in the universe line was what i was expecting but now a whole line? ... WOW


honestly im not a big fan of the optimus toy so im kind of panicking until i see more figures.

if they arnt too good then they're just taking up molds that could be used for better stuff.

im probably judging WAY too early tho. i admit, im REALLY looking forward to seeing some seekers for this line as well as omegasupreme and trypticon (if they get a mold)

and of course i would NEVER turndown an excuse for an epic cybertronian soundwave XD

I hope theres a preorder figure that would be awesome. Right now im wondering what line will these fall under, will it be its own line or will it be under universe? And they better not be store exclusives.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMGEEE!

This is going to be awesome!!!
There has never been a tf toyline based on a TF game! Games tend to have more cool & brute designs then cartoonlines.
Really hope it will be a succes so that the line will have plenty of figures. I do think Hasbro is taking a risk, a game isn't
on tv for everyone once a week. And that's the primary promotion of a toyline.

I iz really happy!

I can't wait for the game to come out. If that OP figure is indicative of this new toyline, I think I am going to be sorely disappointed.
That alt mode looks like poo. I can only hope that his bot mode makes up for the look of that vehicle.

Most likely see Bots : Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Ratchet.
Deluxe and Legends size for sure on Prime.
Cons : Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream( and most likely several repaints of Starscream).
Maybe an Onslaught..

Sounds limited enough...Smallest line to date only has 12 toys I think..? It is america though.. XS~!!

I think that the smallest american Transformers line was the Kaybee exclusive Machine Wars line. It has 12 so and only 7 of them were new molds. The others were repaints of the new molds :sad: that must be the one you're thinking of. Would Kiss Players be considered the smallest japanese line?

Even if you take the girls out if the equation, there are 10 Kiss Player figures (Autrooper, WST Autrooper, Convoy, Hot Rodimus, the eggbots and the cassettes). Alternity is currently smaller, and depending on how technical you want to get, the Nikeformers etc. Are even smaller than that.
