I saw them in stock at toys r us in manchester last week for £13 each i decided to pass on them for now as i already have the legion class versions but for someone whos young child has started collecting transformers they are a good way to start off from as we adult collectors have the generations line so we cant complain too much

Can't complain? Watch us! :twisted:

Seriously though, I actually prefer the Legion scale for the Terrorcons. Sure,it makes the closest thing we have to Generations Terrorcons tiny, but I like the animal's scale to the Deluxe vehicles and they're fun to paint! Blot looks good in Slog's colors, and I love the way Bristleback's colors orked out on Twinstrike. (Watch for pics innext week's transtopia if the Va'al gods are smiling on me... or throwing pies...

Much as I want to believe that, I was just in a Marshall's today as an employee restocked the boys' toy shelf, and got the distinct impression that Hasbro's not sending them any more proper figures until they've dumped every last old TF Kreo set on them; they had at least 8 of the Op and Megs at the bank set.

Was also in a Target today that just put out at least one case of the upscaled Voyagers, and snagged me a nice, half-translucent Predaking just in case I never see one again. (I was ready to finally buy Darksteel, but I'm still haunted by the latter three M.A.S.S. Device Joe sets and JLU Apache Chief/Black Vulcan/Samurai set that I stupidly hesitated on in different Targets years ago).

Have the Voyagers already been reported in the US? I didn't really care enough to remember due to the lack of Insecticons.

EDIT: Ah, so they have. Just added mine as well.

Do these up-scale figures still connect into an up-scale Abominus?

Negatory. No connection ports on these guys, and no more coming beyond these two.

These are the final Deluxe toys for the Prime Beast Hunters line. After these comes Age of Extinction and more Generations.

Has that ever really stopped Hasbro? Could end up in Generations or some other filler in a line a few years down the road.

This is filler. The whole reason Hasbro made these upscaled figures was to pad out the Beast Hunters line until AOE came out.

Besides, even if they were to make the rest of the Abominus guys, Twinstrike and Windrazor don't have any combination ports. Hasbro deliberately removed those from the designs when they upsized them.
