I've been wanting a Serpent OR for years. Why did this have to be how it was released? :BANG_HEAD:

Hasbro needs to put Tarantulas in their Generations line. I loved that guy, he was awesome. Not as awesome as a certain fanatical ant warrior with a fire affinity, but still very awesome! :D :PREDACON: This Tarantulas is pretty cool, but I don't think that vehicle mode suits him. I don't know why.

Legends Starscream/Tcracker/Acid Storm mold or Deluxe Armada Screamer/Jhiaxus.

For those wondering, the reason there's an extra pic of G2 Starscream is because the one in the first two is an earlier mock up that got put into the group shots by accident. Notice the different :G2CON: logo on the second one.

I wish they would add ALL of the Beast Wars stuff to their Generations like. Since we got Rattrap and Takara has Rattle, I'm pretty sure we'll get Primal in the Voyager class at some point. A retool of Beast Hunters Darksteel would easily make a Silverbolt.

I feel like they're treating 15th anniversary Optimus Primal as "close enough" and they're going to hold out on another new mold until at least 2016.

I'm pretty satisfied with all the BW lot these days... except BlackArachnia. Her original toy was SUCH a disappointment. Having a neck-hole slit for a face is just sad. She needs a Generations toy badly.

Among the others I'd be pretty interested in... Scorponok, Inferno and Terrorsaur stick out. The later characters I care much less about, but I'd like to see the early lineup redone with modern techniques.

That aside, I'd still love to see the above with pre-beast-mode forms as well. They are all ALSO missing from the "Dawn of Futures Past" lot, too. (Well, save custom class Inferno, which was a great stab at the idea... albeit a little small.) Always glad to get some new DOFP characters... same for G2 Redux and Shattered Glass.

Except for that toy not being pre-beast Inferno (more like post-beast/Vehicon Inferno, actually).

Well, drat. Krok sure looks a LOT like Megs in vehicle mode.

So many figures I want though, but I gotta pass this year. :( Maybe 4.0

I agree its an odd choice, the homage is to the motorcyle mode his (awesome, especially in grey) Transmetal form had, (although the deco is for his origin form) but it's not exactly the same

I doubt we'll get a new Primal toy; the original is getting re-released with an updated noggin as part of Takara's TF Legends line:

That was an option for the recent Million Publishing poll. We got Go Shooter instead:

Direct redeco of BW 10th Anniversary Optimus Primal:

Has a new chest too ;)

I wouldn't mind more BW characters getting the spotlight, as said before Inferno deserves more exposure. For the Royalty!

Okay, Seibertron... which do you prefer? Got a 1-6 ranking? Mine below for a grin. Bottom choices mostly for mold not being a favorite, and Serpent OR because I'm not a huge Joe collector. Still a spot on Serpentor and great idea.

NACELLE
G2 STARSCREAM
KROK
CARZAP
TARANTULAS
SERPENT O.R.

Ranking these made me notice that there are only two new heads this round. Do you think the 7th figure gets a new one? (Given, we get Nacelle's wings, but that's from an existing mold.)

Hmmm. Out of 2.0, four had new heads (from three sculpts). From 1.0 we got three new heads, one of which was used at Botcon.

Hope we still get three new sculpts this year. >:oP

SERPENT O.R.


I think my preferred order is as follows.

#1 - KROK
#2 - SERPENT O.R.
#3 - G2 STARSCREAM
#4 - CARZAP
#5 - NACELLE
#6 - TARANTULAS

Krok is first because it just works really well. I love the Action Masters updates, plus the Arms Microns partnered with these makes them all the more impressive! Serpent OR is going to be a love or hate figure for most. It just works really well for me and is so out there that I'm excited about it. I'm torn on the next 3. G2 Starscream is OK ... I like him, but something just isn't right about it for me. Even the usage of the G2 Decepticon symbols is a toss-up for me. Part of me is happy they did it, another part of me wishes it used the G1 Decepticon symbols. However, had they used G1 I'd probably be frustrated that they didn't use G2. Carzap is OK. I'd be really excited about this had they found the G2 Windbreaker mold and actually given us the toy that didn't get made in 1995. Same with Nacelle. Had they used the Encore Starscream mold with the G1 Thrust wings, this would be a really unique figure to add to a collection, but using the Classics mold for the 31st (?) time as a character I could care less about that's slightly above a fan-fiction character just doesn't work for me. 3.0 Tarantulas is just a slap in the face to Tarantulas. He needed a new head for this to work! Tarantulas is just too prominent and awesome of a character to become a repaint of a Junkion background character.

Same here, but I'm a bit worried that the "mystery figure" will be a repaint of the Seeker mold. But since the 7th figure is supposed to come with a Micron, it could also be any combination of the other figures as a repaint. Time will tell!

Then you must feel the same about the Sunstorm, Bitstream, and Hotlink toys that we got at BotCon 2013 since Nacelle as a character is of the exact same origin/nature as those three, being a one-off generic Seeker from the G1 cartoon's first episode.

If fact, the same would have to also apply to the likes of Acid Storm and any other generic from the G1 cartoon whose ever received their own toy.

Looking at the molds, if there is another Deluxe size figure... My top choices would be:

Unreleased Seeker (Black seeker with red Dirge wings, since we can put red ramjet wings on Starscream ourselves. Heh.)
Shattered Glass Dirge (actually really want this. Yellow and black looks great on the mold, and it's been a while since we got an SG figure.)
Windbreaker (already have head sculpt)
Alpha Trion (from Scourge mold ala Takara contest)

You're missing my point. It has less to do with the name they put on it and more to do with what the toy is supposed to homage. Nacelle is an homage of a prototype that appeared in some early catalogs from Sears or Toy Fair. I'd rather have the actual toy of what was shown than have a toy that homages a prototype that we never received. Come out with that version first, then I might be more into this version.

Same with Carzap.
