I wonder if they're gonna give us neutered stacks again? If they actually sell what's pictured I'll be picking up the 25th prime. The rest don't look too bad. The only thing I can see that they should change is to take the ears off of Sideswipe because the face is fine, and then paint the fake windows on Ironhide a darker blue to match the windshield. I can't wait to see more.

What's funny about Silverbolt is that the toy embodies the general desire of G1 fans when it comes to Classics. Silverbolt is the G1 toy with better articulation. Both toys have the same transformation.

Silverstreak is awesome, and MUST be repainted/retooled into Prowl and Bluestreak. Ironhide's pretty damn cool too. Interesting to see he's essentially the same SUV as movie Stockade, but has a totally different transform.

Pretty close to the same, true. I think I'd like it more, though, if they'd kept the wings getting wider towards his waist instead of up by the neck, it really makes his backpack stick out to me (and I'm not normally one to mind a backpack *hugs Robo-Vision Prime*).
