There is no actual name for the line on the box/card. Hasbro has labelled it as the Authentics line, while this 7" line also goes by the name Project Storm in its store labeling, which is a name we have seen before in listings, not knowing what it was.
These toys are meant for a younger audience and have even stated appearing at Dollar General locations in the US, so please send us sightings.
For collectors who like these designs and would like figures with more traditional complexity, it seems that will be happening as well.
Without further ado, here is the review!

Still want Grimlock, he just seems like a fun figure. Not necessarily good, just fun.

... This is just to tease Va'al's enemies, isn't it?

He spotted these figures, which are the 3 larger "Alpha" figures, at his local Walmart for $219 MXN, which is around $12 US. The "Alpha" assortment are the 7", roughly voyager sized figures, and they are Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Grimlock. These "Alpha" figures have yet to be seen in America, though the "Bravo" 5" figures have been, but it is nice to know that the "Alphas" have crossed the ocean and at least landed in Mexico. With this sighting, we can only hope that this means that the figures are soon to be seen at US retail.
For those who don't remember, these Authentics figures are based on the new "Evergreen" body style Hasbro is using, and they are larger, cheap toys with short and simple transformations.
Let us know what you think of this North American sighting of the Alpha Authentics below, and let us know if you see these guys showing up elsewhere around the world!

On topic, a Walmart of all places? I guess the smaller ones are for the budget chains, while the bigger ones are for big box retailers?

The "wall" is short for Walmart.

I am 99% sure we did not have a sighting, but TFW did one, from someone finding them at Dollar General or something like that.

This line has "Alpha" figures, and "Bravo" figures.
Authentics Alpha Bravo confirmed. All praise our lord and savior Alpha Bravo.

Check out the clip embedded below, let us know what you think of this smaller scale (about Legends class) figure's jet and robot mode, and the simpler transformation of the line in general, as the characters take on the 'evergreen' designs meant to call back to a general 'iconic' aesthetic, all in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Also, go check out his other videos. The guy deserves the views.

I think there has been some confusion.
That is not the new warrior starscream, this is:
That video is instead showing Authentics 4" Starscream, which Chefatron had reviewed back in December. That toy has been available for a while now across the globe, just not in Canada.
