Does this suggest that these figures will be part of the first wave?

I'm awaiting the kitbashes of these, Megatron would make perfect BM Tankor, and Chromia would make a good Thrust.

I'm willing to wager that when this stuff gets released, the stores will have such a mountain of toys stocked up that waves 1 and 2 will come pouring out in one huge blurr. Many areas had already recieved wave 2 during the first Movies go-around of toys by the time wave 1 was due to release. "Opening day" for the movie toys was a collectors dream and nightmare rolled into one. I drove 20 miles out of my way to get the Protoform releases when they came out and 35 miles to get my first regular movie toy. And I've got a Wal-Mart that's a fifteen minute walk from my house. I'm anticipating the same wave-mix and chaos for this round of toys too. Thankfully, Wal-Mart is open 24 hrs. and the stock team knows me.

Well, it looks like Chromia and Arcee are, in fact, two totally different characters. There's nothing on her card that mentions anything about combining (from what I can tell.) Something of that nature is usually a selling point, so....

What the hell is wrong with the designers ?

None of them is a complete bot. Skids lacks a decent head. Megatron lacks an arm. Chromia lacks feet FFS.

It's like they decided to remake The Wizard of Oz, and send them all to the Fallen in order to get the parts they lack, only to realize that they didn't need them all the way.

I don't like these.

I don't think I'm going to be able to support this toy line.

Not feeling these. Megatron is a maybe, Chromia is a meh, and Skids is a hell no.

We should be thankful for these! If the prequel comic is any indication, we are going to, at some point soon, be blessed with the ever elusive "ice cream" truck as an Autobot. I'm already staking out my spot on a fairly clean brick wall so I'll have plenty of space to beat my head against it.
If this new movie is supposed to be so much darker than the first, why do I get the feeling that I will be laughing my way through 2+ hours of an obviously one-sided slaughterfest.

While I support the designers as far as making the toys look less humanoid (after all, they are alien robots and the arrogant 1950's mentality that aliens should look like us is just absurd) I am having a hard time with what the writers are giving us in the way of Autobot troops in general. The 'Bots biggest warrior is an aged stealth jet with rear facing guns. Almost every other Autobots most outstanding feature is awsome gas mileage. The fate of the planet is in the hands of motor-cycles, sub-compacts, a soft-serve wagon in desperate need of a bath, an R/C truck and a '94 Peterbilt. Earth is soooo screwed!

I think Sideswipe and Prime might be the only things I buy from the new toyline. I honestly don't want these.

I'm I bit confused about Chromia :?

In the Wal-Mart promo video for ROTF and according to Wikipedia, Arcee is a combination of 3 bikes, one pink, one purple, one blue. If the blue one is indeed Chromia (an individual character), then the pink one could be Elita-One and the purple one could be Arcee herself and all 3 fembots can combine into a larger robot like the Constructicons do when combining to form Devastator.

Megatron looks badass except for his mini-arm. Reminds me of the butler in Scary Movie 2 :grin:

So that would be the fail wave im guessing. I love bikeformers but im going to pass on that one. Looks way to simple (and not in a good way) and just looks like crap. At least Thrust had hidden feet. I said it from the start the theme of this movie is wheeled feet.

Wiki isn't to be trusted and unless the Wal-Mart promo actually showed the 3 of them combined AND seperate (which I haven't seen the vid. so I have no clue as to it's content) I'm kind of wondering about whether we actually will have our bike combiner. With the stand that comes with Chromia, I could see a 2nd stand working well as feet for a larger bot but that would leave the 3rd motorcycle having to be bigger than Dlx class Arcee from the first Movies toyline and that would look lame next to the other 2 bikes. I think they should have released all 3 bikes at once in a set but then they would have had less chance of raping our wallets if they had done that.

To me this is the transformer side show. This toy line is plain ugly so far. I'm thankful to be able to rest my wallet.

So far I like the Leader class stuff, even wonky-arms Megatron.

I'm hoping the bike-bots combine, That may make me interested. If they are just doing the wheeled warrior thing I may be skipping them.

I like the Vette, and even the BB with the pop out guns, but I'm not digging the fugly brothers.

Not necessarily. Given the bizarre articulation we've seen in Chromia, I'd expect their merging to be completely unique, and involve a lot more 'mixing' together than you see in most of the TF gestalts - more like the Beast Wars gestalts than the Scramble Cityor Energon Gestalts, or even the RID Build Team.

Actually, the three RID locomotives were all approximately the same size, right? And yet they made a decent combined form.

Some of the Decepticons (for whom I don't mind a sort of deformed look) like Rampage may win me over, but I may also get the bikes if they're in the same size range as TF1 Arcee and TFA Prowl (i.e. roughly GIJoe sized).

I've been generally surprised that so few of the scout class figures have caught my fancy. The armored Red Bull truck and the funky futuristic car just come off as too Happy Meal. The biplane (uniqueness & historical interest), the boat (decent robot mode), and the fork-lift (funny) may make it on to my desk though.
