Yeah, I want a deluxe class Smokescreen too. Not just the Knockout repaint from Takara. I want an individual mold. But so far, the beast hunters line looks too much like Transformers have landed in The Savage Land!!

Not even that. When Transformers landed in the Savage Land, we got the G1 Dinobots! These guys are NO where near as cool!

Yes, that's right. Well, how about the transformers landed in Neverland. You know, the one where Robin Williams was Peter Pan. But seriously, I guess like Onslaught said, this is Hasbro's way of saying no more Prime. Which I find weird because it has been speculated that the tv series was supposed to long running and after the season 2 finale, I want more!!

I picked these up and I honestly don't think they are that bad. again, there's been worse. The weapons don't quite work like mechtech, no springy gimmicks mucking anything up. Now what will be an issue are the qc issues, but to this point they are fixable.

 

Bumblebee I really like. All of them except laserback are retools of the rid figs. BB is the most heaviest with basically the whole upper body remolded, but still functions similarly to the original. The beast thing be damned, he just looks ready to hunt and kill something. That's cool in my book.

 

Wheeljack is a slightly less, but rather heavy remold as well. My gripe being arms popping off and the spikes all over being a bit of a pain . to deal with. Otherwise, he looks ready to stomp some ass like BB. His biggest addition being the fold out wings which can be adjusted to whatever way floats your boat. The spear folds up and has a launching ring that can open and be clamped to some part of the enemy as a restraining device i guess. Not bad.

 

Soundwave is probably the least remolded, but does pick up some mass...particularly on the wings. Ravage is tiny but OK. SW also has a grappling harpoon which doesn't help the alt mode, but it's fine for bot mode. It would have been much better with a couple of better color choices.

 

Laserback wasn't my high on my pickup list, but he isn't half bad. He reminds me of a lower form of cybertron Scourge before .getting upgraded. Bot head being super loose and a not having enough articulation for his beast mode does hurt it more than anything. However he does have a rather nice bot mode with some neat steps in transforming. Weapons nicely integrate into a beast mode and can still both function as his back/gun pops up and can swivel .so he's like part beast part mobile gun station.

 

 

I see where people are coming from though. These would be fine figures at the old $9.99 price, but for what we're stuck paying now they need to step things up a lot! Yes, retailers are jacking the prices, but I'm sure Hasbro has some part in that as well.

 

 

While I am liking these, I don't have that fuzzy feeling looking forward to the Optimus coming.

From the pictures, I kind of like his alt mode. It looks kind of like a cross between the G1 flat noses can and the Animated cab. I can see where some people will like these figures. I can't, and again, that's not knocking anyone who does. I actually think Wheeljack looks pretty cool in bot mode. Again, I will be getting Ripclaw and possibly Predaking. So, now I'll have 4 different factions fighting with 1 wildcard. Terrorcon Cliffy is like the Jason Vorhees of my Prime figures. He'll just randomly show up to terrorize.

So far I have picked up Soundwave, Wheeljack, and Lazerback. Of the three Soundwave surprised me the most, there is some limited articulation with the new design but over all I am impressed more so then I expected. Wheeljack is a nice change but mine has already showcased the arm problem. And Finally Lazerback is just plain awesome, not sure why, but I really like this design and look forward to other new animal ones we have seen so far.

...everytime I see the name "Lazerback", it's like hearing fingernails scraping down a chalkboard. (-_-) Damn you Hasbro and your illiteracy!

 

:agree

 

It always looks like someone misspelled "Laserbeak."

    • @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.
