I think someone is getting his molds mixed up: supposedly Nightbeat is a RtS Special Ops Jazz retool, while Jhiaxus is one of Gen. Armada Starscream. What's the deal?

And hell yeah on Roadbuster!

HOW MANY FAN ORIENTATED FIGURES?!!?!

Shit. I need a new job. Like a bank robber maybe. Also very relieved to hear those Nightbeat and Jihaxus images were bullshit.

Glad that the Legends line is only on hiatus.

No wonder they stopped taking orders and went Non Active.

Look forward to the rest coming out later this year.

Honestly, hearing about an Acid Storm made my fan %$#@! (pardon my French) go away. I so wanted a Smokescreen to accompany my Dreadwing :-( On the plus side "Venin" sounds an awful lot like Venom. I'm happy to hear about more deluxe insecticons.

I'm mostly interested in seeing what the new video game will be about. I just hope it isn't another third person shooter. I'd prefer it to be melee based.

Also, I don't think the toys we saw yesterday for AOE were the main line, I REALLY hope they weren't.

Posted by Primeultimus on February 15th, 2014 @ 1:09pm CST
I cannot wait until they show Brainstorm I am hoping they make a few Headmasters at some point.

Really want Shrapnel , Gears and TailGate.

A proper Roadbuster to pair with Whirl is going to be awesome!

7 more "classified" figures coming down the pipes later.


More stuff to be revealed for Age of Extinction? Meh, I'm a patient man when it comes to the live-action films, it's Generations that's killing me.

Legends Wave 3
Gears w/ Eclipse (Swerve remold)
(Jerry coined the term 'autogasm')
Acid Storm with Venin (Starscream repaint)


Glad to see Legends are still going at it. Though I don't remember Acid Storm being on the Master List. :-?

Deluxe class Nightbeat (retool of IDW Bumblebee)
Jhiaxus (new mold)
Windblade


Thank. God. Wasn't all for Reveal the Shield Jazz as Nightbeat. [-(

Kre-o Transformers product line
----------------------------------------------------------------
Micro Changers (Movie)
Misfire, Fangwolf, Trypticon and Skarpnel
Jarugar ... and others
Jetwash, Wingpspan, Hawk, Highbrow and one other (slide went too fast)

Wait, it says Movie but I don't think any of them have appeared in the Movieverse...
... except Highbrow, I'd LOVE a Kreon out of him!

I wonder how that Skrapnel will compare to my Shrapnel custom.

Custom Kreons: Optimus Prime, Drift, Ratchet, and Lockdown (Movie styled)

I hope we get Kreons of the previous 3 Movies, too. I'm sure AoE will have some wants, but I NEED Blackout, Barricade, Jetfire, Bonecrusher, and the others.

Micro changers Combiners: (all new characters)
Grimstone - mollox, Iguanox, Crackback, and Ironeye
Lazerbolt
Obsidian
Volcanicon

New characters? In Kre-O?! That's... that's just weird. But could be interesting.
Though I'm disappointed they seemingly aren't doing the non-G1 Combiners. (or non-US-cartoon-G1 or whatever Sabrblade will probably correct me on)


Grimlock Street Attack with 3 Kreons (Gold Knight Optimus Prime and 2 Vehicons)
Jail Cell Breakout with Swoop looking dinosaur and 3 Kreons - Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Vehicon)
Lockdown Air Assault with Dinosaur, Lockdown, Sideswipe and Hound
Galvatron's Factory Battle - Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Vehicon, Dr. Littleman, 2 - KSI Workers

That's a lot of Optimuses. And Vehicons? Didn't know they were in AoE (unless "Vehicon" is just a catch-all Decepticon mook term now).



And yes, I totally ignored everything that isn't Kre-O.
