    "highly anticipate" - couple of LOLs.

    I really can't work out how that cab becomes that robot. Which is either impressive by the toymaker, or dumb-as-nails by me.

    Disappointing. I can only hope it's not very screen accurate. Obviously the kibble is not, but it looks like they're going with even more of a samurai-inspired look for Prime. Maybe the sleeker look will work great on the other bots, but I REALLY loved the original movie prime design.

    Something is very wrong with that press release. I saw how they were possibly calling it Generations. Sure there could be Generations released preview figure- but may has traditionally been where the release happens for the movie main line. Why would a generations preview figure happen at the same time?

    Also, a leader preview is a bit odd?

    Prefer the deco here with shield having red tints etc but i must say taste is everyone's choice and opinion but I like it.

    so the backpackey crapwings we saw on the in hand toy actually fold forward and form hip skirt armour? i'm ok with this. I wonder if they're gonna work in some stupid light and sound gimmick. or for that matter what kind of line wide gimmick aoe is gonna have. i see no obvious signs of one here.

    Given the "back to basics" simplicity mindset we're seeing at Hasbro, I'd not be surprised if there wasn't a linewide gimmick and instead just a focus on simple and easy to play with toys.

    If this level of articulation is standard across the line, then at least that one fear of simplifying the toys is assuaged.

    And yes, that press release is quite odd.

    Is Hasbro solving their "off season" toy slump pattern by going to ONE transformers line (Generations) and simply releasing the movie figures in it along side other in-scale non-movie bots, in some kind of continuous stream of toyness?

    Idk... Seems lazy IF it is leader class... Seems like the rotf and dotm had more love in making it this just seems like"eh" but I don't think its hasbros fault its primes movie design plus the windows in the chest is iconic so I'm sure that made the toy designing difficult... Idk I'm on the fence.
