If I ever find them in the wild, I'd like at least Megatron. He look neat. ;)^

Bee and Optimus just look sad in both modes while Starscream transform like one of those matchbox car. Pathetic.

Technically they aren't listed on HTS yet, the links from those product pages are all bad.

At least they've finally confirmed that the line is in fact called "Transformers Authentics".

They call this like "Authentic" because they want to assure us those are official Transformers, not Dollar Store KOs. :lol:

Soon after the recent appearance of the Authentics 4.5" toys on HTS, finally confirming the name of this series, Hasbro now updates their online database to include two new additions to the line we were unaware of thus far. They are none other than Bumblebee and Optimus Prime but in a 7 inch scale. This 7" class also features Grimlock, and he can be found below as well along with their product descriptions which specify that Bumblebee and Optimus convert in 4 steps (that info is erroneously left out of Grimlock's description). Like the 4.5" toys, these are based on the Evergreen designs. While they are new toys, both Optimus and Bumblebee seem to be upscaled versions of those same toys with added articulation. You can see images of the 4.5" toys here for comparison to these 7" toys.

They gave Bee elbow joints but no proper hip joints? Prime looks no better than his smaller form did. I guess Grimlock looks okay, but man does he really need more paint!

Those 7" versions of Bee and Optimus are still ugly asfak, but just giving them elbows is a great improvements that make the toys worthwhile. And those are better than the RiD and Movie 3 steps. That Grimlock also look pretty boss. Ironically better looking than the horrid PotP version!

If I ever see one in the wild, I may pick one up. Then, I'll get some painting practice. :-?

Very silly question, but what team was responsible for the design of these toys?

I thought you really liked that RID 3 Step Grimlock.

i am questioning the designer's decision to make optimus and bumblebee's elbow joint bend inside like a gorilla, when they are totally able to give a normal elbow bend on grimlock

For relative sizing purposes:

4.5" / 11.4 cm: between Legends & Deluxe Class
7" / 17.8 cm: Voyager Class

(used figures on hand)

... and the latter coming carded works against it when it comes to legitimacy at first sight. Generally speaking, figures of that size are usually boxed; KO's on the other hand are a different story. Not saying they're KO's, just that people will think that they are... at least of similar quality.

So you have to may more for your Autobots to get elbows

Oh, that one ROCK. But he definitely proper hands and some elbows would have been welcome. Plus those would have never hindered the 3 steps gimmick.

I also happen to have 3 steps Thunderhoof but this one is far from perfect. The 3 steps gimmick in his shoulders is not responsive 100% of the time. And finally for the big 1 step TLK Optimus, appart the paint that [ur=https://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/tlk-turbo-changer-optimus-prime-paint-overhaul--t109227.phpl]I IMPROVED[/url] I would really liked a bonus step to fold down the feet for truck mode.

Oh, not at all.
Don't forget that the 3 steps and Turbo Changers toys are voyager sized too and are packaged in a similar fashion. Little kids seem to LOVE touching the plastic and then call mom to buy it. That's why no 1 steps or standard sized Rescue Bots are boxed too.

This is what I was going to say. It's especially odd since there's plenty of space to have given them proper forward elbows.

Grimlock looks like the kind of figure that'll be fun to keep on the desk and just mess around with. Just something cheap and fairly decent looking to quickly transform back and forth.
