  1. Why is he an exclusive? Did hasbro decide not to do another official wave and just make everything unreleased for earthrise exclusives? The two-pack from Amazon was hard enough to get, but with more than half of Earthrise being exclusives they are making it very hard to get some of the mainstream figures. I am glad they are releasing more, and more versions but I wish distribution was better. They could at least share exclusives on hasbro pulse so buyers have two options instead of one.

  2. I am a bit surprised by the return to ball point joints after both siege and earthrise have provided toys with top quality articulation and long term stability with the pin and lever joints (or however you would describe them). Interestingly, it was the introduction of the ball point joints which allowed Hasbro to make the original beast wars toys beast mode/robot modes work and be similar to the on screen characters. I wonder if the other beast bots will get similar treatment? 

    Of these three, the generations one jumps out as the better figure.

  3. Coneheads at last (had to comment as I have been wishlisting them here for years it feels like!) They all look good, even the maverick figure. Cyclonus alt mode looks so sleek, though my second look at his robot's shoulders remind me of the universe/classics version I already have (shoulder articulation is somewhat limited). So hopefully better articulation than the picture shows. Also, I did not like earthrise megatron's digital renders (too similar to siege) but the in package photo intrigues me...

  4. Some thoughts:

    Megatron: missed opportunity! He is siege Megs with new parts, color placement, tooling, and head. I was hoping for a different alt mode at least; jet maybe or homage to Armada/Energon. Too bad. If his articulation was better than siege, I would upgrade.

    Doubledealer: a little hollow on the legs but nice overall. I am glad they seem to be steering away from a blitzwing pre-mold; not sure if we'll get WFC blitzwing now.

    All the base mode bots look swell and I dig the two headed battlemaster; the battlemasters are awesome for the effects parts alone.

    Scorponok, I really wanted to pass on him because I don't have space for titans but he looks so good! Can't wait to see more pics of all of these.

    I hope earthrise brings us forward in transformers; the decrease in articulation on some of these is a bit of a let-down

  5. I am looking forward to Cliffjumper the most; I kind of miss the legends scale BUT I really like the extra articulation of the Deluxes so it all works out.

    I am tempted by the Starscream because I love the character, and recent pictures have almost sold me on the mold (too bad no waist articulation). I am still waiting for my coneheads! Good reuse of this mold maybe? I hope Hasbro has them on the schedule at some point this year.

  6. 32 minutes ago, BaCon said:

    WHY Is a mega billion dollar company like Hasbro using crowdfunding?

    Kind of smart considering the losses they took last year with Toys R Us leaving. It would be a risky venture I think. This guarantees payment for the product.

    And, if you are an MP collector who is buying the new MP Optimus which retails for almost this amount, heck, why not buy a Unicron too?

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to get this, but I honestly still like my Armada Unicron. He has posable fingers and a moveable mouth too ?

  7. A couple of observations. 1. it looks like the battle armor and extra weapons might be going away, at least for leader figures. 2. Maybe Apeface's headmaster will match the titans return line? Sorta looks that way from the picture. Backwards compatibility I hope!

    Was going to get Astrotrain when he was rumored but I am unsure now. If Blitzwing gets a leader release, I might go for it. Will depend on how they look next to the siege voyagers. I think Astrotrain and Blitzwing should be chunky and a little taller than Megatron but not too big. Cool to be getting some new faces though!  Glad these are delayed till the next round of WFC (if that's true). Will give me a chance to catch up on the summer/fall releases.

  8. So I study production and industry and I don't think rising productions cost can explain all of it but it is on of the options that makes sense. Presence of competing options should not drive the price up but down.

    The only other one I think is possible is the presence of other high-price licensed figures that you mention. Those non-transforming ones that are pricey and the statues maybe. Honestly, I am not sure. Inflation? Or a combination of these.

    Also, 55 votes of other and only 2 comments...lol!

  9. Not a terrible alt mode. From the front it looks ok. Most transformers show their robot mode parts in their alternate transformation. That said, the price of most masterpiece for the quality is not matched any more. hasbro/takara's siege line has shown that we can get good transformers for reasonable prices with masterpiece-alike tooling. I do hope beast wars gets some love though, its a great series.
