So the Three-Steps are now called Hyper Change Heroes? Ok, I can live with that.

They were called "Hyperchange Heroes" first before the "Three Step Changers" name came about. Now that it's back, it remains to be seen which name is final.

For the love of Primus, just pick a name and stick with it! :P

Look like Hasbro continue the AoE trend of having "stomp n changes" and 1 step changers along the regular deluxes and voyagers.

I accept those because they are still transformers and can be fun. However, I do hope they stop producing non transforming toys like those "shampoo bottles" "action" figures, or those pointless dino riders.

That sword bumblebee has looks familiar ... if that is what I think it is. :-?
time to get a new bumblebee figure maybe modify it with 5mm holes so it can hold more glorious weapons and or arms microns or Armada over-run :lol:

I'm really hoping that tail is detached from Grimlock in robot mode because that's what they had to do to fit him in the box and someone just screwed up, rather than removing the tail and setting it aside being part of how he transforms. I can put up with a little partsforming, but I do insist the parts go back on at some point.

These designs, character and transformation, look real kid friendly. And I'm OK with that.
I hope they give us some legion/mini size toys too. Are they? Do we already know that?
More Cyberverse please.

I'm also interested in finding out more about how the badge-scan/app gimmick works.

I think it's supposed to be a weapon of some sort. There really isn't any other reason for that Grimlock to have 5mm pegs otherwise.

I thought that for a bit, but I don't see any pegs on that tail, so I figured that answer wasn't gonna be the answet.

Okay, this illustrates my misgivings about the '3 to 5 different difficulty-level figures for each character' trend. It's a great way to give everyone from preschoolers to adult collectors the toys they want, IF everyone can keep all the variations straight. But while an Amazon listing is easily called out here or any other fansite, and will be corrected before long, I have a bad feeling that this is just confusing the heck out of kids and their parents, causing consistent clusters of chronic shelfwarming.

I can't even remember which AofE characters have or haven't gotten figures in different brackets on which side of the Pacific, and I'm supposedly be the expert at my store. And I for one, LOVED that movie more than the first 3 put together, so I actually do CARE...but it's still not enough. Just today, someone was asking for "the Bumblebee car". While that does conveniently rule out the shampoo bottles and any Rescue Bot Raptors, it's not quite enough, and I can just imagine that being a typical 5 year old's response to an overwhelmed mother asking, "which Bumblebee?" With most other characters, the problem would be only having one version of them in stock, making the odds at best 1 in 3 that it's the desired one.

I'm just saying that Hasbro needs to somehow better communicate how the different difficulty levels work, or this isn't going to move enough lower-production-cost toys to stave off the scourge of higher plastic prices in the long run. Maybe more elaborate diagrams on the packaging than just the 1-2-3 system on the front?

Why do we need to have the same characters at every price point anyways? Why not have different characters occupy different price points like they did roughly from Beast Wars to Animated, rather than making Bumblebee in every shape and size?

It's the strategy they implemented with the first movie, I think it was in response to customer/retailer complaints; make the core/popular characters in all the price points/sizes.

For the first three movies and the cartoons from that time period, it was still not quite on the level it's become with AoE and the new RiD show, though.

Because even in Beast Wars, you had Basic level figures with full articulation, but I'd be very upset if the first new character we get (Strongarm) was only released as a flip-change brick. (Dog-goonit i want my Generations Rescue Bots) c

The original spring changers like Terrorsaur and Megaplex was a perfectly good cigure, i wish we could at least get back to those. They had ball joints; elbows, knees, hips, shoulders.

If you mean what it's reading, it looks like the dot and dash patterns around the badges are unique. It will just use the camera to scan the dot pattern like a QR or bar code only much simpler.
