Got the entire first wave of Prime RID toys minus BB seeing as i have the FE..here are my thoughts:

 

Cliffjumper- i like him...hands down..i know alot of people are complaining over him being inferior to the FE mold..i can agree with this....however to me that doesnt mean its necessarily a bad toy...yeah he kinda has gorilla arms...and im not down with the hammer thing...but its still a decent figure for the most part...the transformation is interesting.....the detail is nice and i love his head sculpt.....though he is my least favorite out of the first wave deluxes i still like him...he will do nicely seeing as i cant afford the FE... 2 1/2 out of 5

 

Wheeljack- this guy is fucking great...love the car mode..love the bot mode...cant really think of any thing good to say that anyone hasnt already said about this guy....couldve used a bicep swivel...other than that..no real complaints with the guy...absolutely love his leg transformation...very creative and thought out....second favorite of the first wave..... 4 out of 5

 

Voyager Prime- Meh....dont get me wrong...the robot mode is nice...its those clear blue forearms and those terrible weapons...total crap...his truck mode is really nice though.....nice articulation....nice detail...just the weapons kill it for me....gonna find another gun from somewhere for him and paint those forearms...then he'll be great...once again..cant afford the FE... 3 out of 5

 

Voyager Megatron- My favorite of the two voyagers...i actually really like this version of this toy....great robot mode...i can live with the vehicle mode..with as out of the ordinary as it is...hasbro did a good job with what they had to work with on the vehicle mode....robot mode is fantastic....dont mind the "wings" made from the back kibble...can just take them off....cannon doesnt really bother me that much either to tell you the truth....with some paint and a little modding itll do just fine..... 4 1/2 out of five

 

Soundwave- last but not least...my absolute favorite from the first wave..and incidentally the first one i bought thanks to a kind member of the forums here...thanks man......this figure is absolutely perfect in every way...period....predator drone mode....A+ Robot mode...A+ the inclussion of Ratbat (its Ratbat to me, get over it) A+..... i love this dude....amazing posability...amazing detail..fantastically accurate in both modes...what more could you ask for....it even exudes creepy as hell...just like in the show.... best of the line IMO....get him if none of the others.. 5 out of 5

I agree about Voyager Prime's gun. It really is terrible. However, if you ever decide to get Arcee, the massive gun she comes with is a great substitute for it. It looks much better in Optimus's hands since it's literally as tall as her.

Bot Shots Barricade - Adorable. Awesome. Great for when I want something to mess with but don't want to really transform and don't want to dig out Activators Bumblebee. No articulation whatsoever, but who cares? I may have to get me a Bumblebee for him to 'fight'...though I have my eye on that three-pack that includes Prowl and Sentinel Prime, provided I can find it.

 

Speaking of Bumblebee, I also broke down and bought Prime Bumblebee. Out of the package...he's kinda crap. Really don't like the floaty head thing, and while forcing the center to move a bit before pulling the shoulders out the rest of the way helps, I went with Mister Fanwank's fix of just shaving away the last two gear teeth. That helps A LOT, actually. He is fun to transform, and generally gets the job done, but I'm still going to get First Edition Bumblebee to really see how the 'Bees compare.

 

Funny thing though. When I had the shoulder assembly separated from the rest of the toy, I discovered the most amazing thing: the shoulders actually can swing out entirely and lock! The problem? Nothing else on the toy is set up to allow this to work. Honestly this is something that should have been caught at the design stage and something done to allow this to work, especially since it's yet another Bumblebee toy among a sea of yellow.

I got my MW-01 Spray. Is it just me, or are third party "Transformers" becoming better than Hasbro/takara Tomy's? The poseability is great and packaging is top notch. Top it all off, he comes with a spear gun!!!! Now I'm looking forward to the "Cosmos" version the company is making!! The only thing is if maybe they weren't Micro Warriors. I'd like to see them in a deluxe class size.

Rescue Bots Boulder: 7/10 based on the fact that it's an RB. I don't know why he goes for over $50 on eBay. I want a second one that I can repaint into Bonecrusher. Just needs a lighter shade of green.

TFP Cyberverse Bulkhead. 8/10.

TFP Cyberverse Megatron. 5/10.. The Cybertron jet mode is very lacking in, well, everything. I'm gonna goof around to see if I can gt a decent laser gun mode out of it.

TFP Soundwave 10:10

A dead ringer for the character, downright creepy, and super posable, particularly in the upper body. I can't call his minion "Laserbeak" though. Laserbeak is a bird, This thing is more like a bat. Thus, he's Ratbat as far as I'm concerned.

 

TFP Arcee 9.5:10

Damn-near perfect except for some needed paint apps and the need for duplicates of her weapons. Very screen accurate, nicely articulated, and very feminine looking. With some paint touch-ups, she's easily a 10:10.

    • @Joe Velez I love that you ALWAYS question authority. Mwhahaha! Seems to me, Hasbro is copying the Marvel Universe. Pretty much everything Transformers is a Generations series now. Authentics, Cyberverse, Legacy, Masterpiece, and Studio series are all reissuing past characters.
    • No. There's no way. This is pretty much someone's wish fulfillment list. There has to be another April Fool's Day that happens every June 24th that I'm just not aware of. I don't believe this list one bit. Especially since Legacy is supposed to be a one and done. It's a supposedly a filler line to finish off WFC and begin the next series/trilogy. Crasher? Nope. Hasbro is too scared to use the name...or are they? Road Ranger had his name didn't he? I hope it's not from either Mirage mold though and is instead from Dragstrip. It would be so easy to retool that into a Crasher that even has the front of the vehicle point out back behind her. I still don't see this happening though. Shadow Striker? Most likely Cyberverse and not Universe/OTFCC because then we'd also need Roulette. The Cyberverse character is now the G1 version so it makes the most sense. I don't see it happening. Never mind, it will be ROTF Shadow Striker lol. An upscaled SS86 Wheelie done in black and red. Just what everyone wanted right? Well, I want a black and red SS86 Wheelie and I haven't even seen him yet. Hot Rod? What we would all want is a retool of Override as IDW Hot Rod like the MMC figures but what we'll get is a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod instead. We'll get a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod eventually. It's only a matter of time with that one. What's next to add to that list, a retool of Cosmos or even Origin Bumblebee as Path Finder? Why not both? Blue Cosmos (no not the Blue Cosmos from Gundam) and grey Bumblebee. Maybe Smallfoot as a retool of an upcoming RID 2015 Strongarm too? Core Soundblaster? No shit. There's no way they're going to not do that eventually. Core class Dinobots? No way. I'd love it but no way. Needlenose? The one who's always on the votes but never wins? Hasbro is just toying with us with this one. There's no way they're going to make one now. They want to see the fans cry about it too much now. And he's downgraded from voyage to deluxe to pour more salt on the wounds. Hot Shot? Armada Hot Shot? There's nothing saying it's going to be Armada Hot Shot. When it's been an alternate universe character they always put that in its name. This could be Armada HS, Energon HS, Cybertron HS, RID 2001 HS, Animated HS. So which one is it? It's none of them because it's not happening. Deluxe Junkions with a number denoting future retools and redecos? What so a reissue of the RTS mold? The CW mold? They already made a voyager Junkion from Wreck Gar. I don't see why they'd need to do a deluxe at this point. Maybe for Detritus or Nancy? It just doesn't make sense. Tarn? Yeah no. It just doesn't seem like Hasbro want's to touch the DJD. Although we are getting a nice Jhiaxus though. But no. Just no. Leo Prime? Again, this whole list just sounds like wish fulfillment. There's no way. And then what? We get white, black and purple redecos? Thundertron, Alpha Trizer and GO Prime? Hasbro don't make such deep cuts for redecos and retools. Granted they've started to go pretty deep lately but not Leo Prime redeco deep. Prime Skyquake..............actually, I don't see why not with this one. But they'll probably use either Seeker mold or Jhiaxus for it though. Don't expect the beefcake he was. Although I would like him, Dreadwing and Megaplex who don't break. Not that mine are broken...that I know of... Oh wait. I brushed over the fact that it says leader and not voyager. No way it's happening now. I just completely assumed it was voyager as it made the most sense. For a leader Skyquake it would need to be Euro G1 for Hasbro to most likely do it, not Prime. Armada Megatron? I don't see why not with him either. New mold and all. This one I believe fully. Galvatron and Megazarak redecos too this time. Most of these figures are just too on point for what fans what for Hasbro to do them.  I would love to be wrong though. Well, other than Soundblaster as that's bound to happen sooner rather than later. I really hope I'm wrong. I want some of these so much. Watch I'm wrong on everything but that means no Armada Megatron as I think that one is real.
    • Transformers Velocitron is not even shipping yet, and JTPrime17 flies in with newly leaked listings offering up many spoilers for what is coming our way in 2023. First off, IF you liked what's going on with Velocitron there is Wave 2 coming too. Next, Legacy has lots more in store next year with some new nods to Cybertron, Prime, G1, and Aw yeah, Armada fans will be getting their fix with at least one leader exposed.
