Well...not my cup of tea, but I like seeing Transformers branch out and making a bigger name for themselves. This could be a great step forward.

Looks fun. Remind me of the Japanese anime battle car thingy, with their weapons and stuff.

Well, looks like there's a Galvatron there. Possible box art to be revealed soon?

And why is there "Decepticon" prefix on his name? Thought Hasbro secured that?

"Warriors race into battle using vibration technology"

Maybe there isn't a better way to phrase that, but Primus help us all if they do one of Scorn. Or Waspinator's next incarnation. Or that other FunPub exclusive.


*ahem* As for the characters they are doing, Galvatron's the same colors as Rescue Bots Blades?!? Did a designer stumble across info on Shatterd Glass Galvatron, trace his roots back to Evac, and get confused?

My only question: Is Stinger's deluxe figure gonna have the battle mask to differentiate him from BB?

I guess that means Stinger is an evil Bumblebee. Wait wasn't there supposed to be a deluxe Stinger and 2014 Camaro Bumblebee?

Okay, now Michael Bay has gone too far. The dinobots aren't half bad, but these insecticons are clearly just lazy. They don't even look to have robot modes, they all look like they're trying to disguise themselves as other transformers, and we don't even get one recognizable bot from the original group. I'd expect them to at least put sharpshot/shrapnel or kickback in the group if they want fans to accept them as proper insecticons. Moreover, the gimmick for the toys is kind of lame, especially if it means no transformations. I'd even take those plastic titan figures instead of these weird robot modeless bugs.

They... look like Morphers. With Stinger reminding me most of the one from Gokaiger/PRSMF.

Thank God they didn't try to make these look more like the characters. I applaud their choice to use the TF characters as inspiration for the designs rather than trying to literally make them look like the movie characters.

They could actually cool as part of a TF display; they could be like companion pets or drones for the TFs.

on a completely unrelated note, why does stinger remind me so much of FoC vortex?

I hope they have a bio for these. Like all the Transformers decided to assume robotic bug modes and settle their differences that way

We know there will be a Stinger. We're assuming there will be a 2014 Camaro Bumblebee after the first few waves.

Really?


Hasbro is really reaching now.

More fodder for the Christmas clearance section.

You don't understand the concept of licensing, I guess.

I'm a little disappointed. You have Hexbugs doing a tie in and don't think to use any of the Insecticons. No kickback? No Shrapnel? Hardshell? Waspinator? Anyone. For the Autobots, Bumblebee is the logical choice, but the Decepticons/Insecticons have a deep bench of names. As I said, disppointing.

How could they do Insecticons for an Age of Extinction tie in? Age of Extinction is obviously gonna be the mainstream moneymaker, so it makes sense to want to get in on its action. But there aren't any Insecticons in that movie/line, so it wouldn't make sense to use them here for an AOE tie in.
