Did no one really post this yet?

TFW

Didn't see another thread for this, maybe I looked in the wrong place.

Anyway, it's all awesome. We have a full line of TFP CV toys...and all of them come with weapons. Some may not like that they're energon weapons, but I think it's cool and a nice throwback to TF:E.

Cliffjumper - legion. Red weapon that looks like a gun, but has an edge at the "barrel", so it might be a sword or gunsword. Cool transformation, and he looks to have both elbows and knees.

Bulkhead - maybe a legion? only one weapon, which seems to be the differentiator (the Commanders have 2 energon pieces). Anyway, he still looks pretty massive. His shoulders are clearly mistransformed. Weapon is a bit meh; blue, maybe some kind of blunt gun. Weird blue lightpiping in the hood. It ends up in front of the clear windshield to form his chest, so maybe it represents spark glow or something?

Car Eradicon - pretty cool, but has a cheaty transformation. Weird weapon, looks like a gun with a blade mounted in off to the side. Purple, though. Shown in car mode with what is clearly one of Optimus's swords.

Megatron - commander. It, honestly, doesn't look much different from the deluxe. Pretty impressive. Dark energon torso armor and sword. (his arm cannon is normal plastic).

Starscream - I think it's a commander, as he comes with 2 null-rayish guns. Pretty lithe, though.

Optimus - Looks better than the deluxe, I think. Shown with 2 of his guns (blue), but judging by the sword with the Eradicon, the second gun is probably from an extra Optimus and the actual toy likely comes with 1 sword and 1 gun. I can't really tell from the packaging pic. Edit; nevermind, the packaging pic says 2 cannons. Maybe a repaint comes with the sword?

Wheeljack's ship - looks a lot better here than in the SDCC mock ups. Lots of clear weapons, but I don't think they're removable. I'm a lot more prone to buy this now.

Oh, and BB in car mode has a light purple (not the same color as Megatron and Eradicon's stuff) buzzsaw on his car roof. Who does this go with? Maybe an unseen Airachnid?

Ah, ok. It was still on p. 4 so I figured it hadn't been posted there. Mods, feel free to close, obviously.

Cyberverse Cliffjumper is ADORABLE! I have to have him!

I think I like these better than the large figures so far. I don't feel the need to own a lot of large Prime guys but a small (literally) army kinda appeals.

-ZacWilliam, and that Wheeljack is DEFINATELY joining my G1 Legends figures.

So are all those new Prime Cybercerse toys Commanders, not Legion? Seem to be bigger and have weapons.

We knew about it from BotCon, but I don't think I'd stated how much I like that Wheeljack ship gets a toy.

Pretty sure all the single-weapon toys are legion and the double-weapon toys are commanders.

There does seem to be less difference between their actual sizes, though; I think Bulkhead is a legion, but he doesn't look like he'd be much smaller than Optimus of Megatron. Starscream, on the other hand, looks pretty low mass, but has 2 weapons and is tall.

I just might pick a few of those...

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

I'm loving that guys like WJ and the Eradicon are getting toys. I may not be buying the complete line of full-size toys, but I'll get all the CV stuff (with possible exceptions for playsets).

And, with all the stuff they're showing here, I've got pretty decent confidence that guys like Breakdown and Knock Out will get made too.

I'm pretty sure we heard at Botcon that Bulkhead's a Commander. The only guy I can remember being Legion offhand is Wheeljack.

As for size, check out the very first image. Megatron's way taller than Arcee.

I NEED THEM ALL!
The new place I'm moving has an area that will be perfect for Cyberverse.
I'll need to track down some of the DOTM stuff as well.

Bee and the Eradicon are definitely legion. I could buy Bulkhead being commander; I was just sticking to this "one weapon = legion" schema in my head.

Cyberverse doesn't excite me like the rest of you I guess.

Nice there is a good variety of them though.

I keep waffling over whether to go with Cyberverse or the bigger line, but I'm probably just going to end up getting both, huh?

Cyberverse stuff looks okay, but I'm pulling for the full-size versions. I really like how Cybertron-like the packaging is though!

Crappy pictures, but im with Powered Convoy and I don't see the need to get these.
If there is a deluxe or voyager - then that is my prefered purchase. Only if they choose to make a figure cyberverse only will I pick it up.
