Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

Eh, if I could only buy 1 version of Bruticus, it would be the regular retail version. Overall, I like that deco just a little bit more. I'm going to try and get the SDCC version as well (love that box) but I doubt I'll be able to get 1 via the Hasbro TS.

Don't think my chances of getting a MP Prime at a TRU around here are very high either. Pretty much convinced at this point that the scalpers hogging all the nice TRU exclusives TFs are TRU employees!

Biggest surprise for me so far is how much I actually dig that TFP Wheeljack redeco. Awesome new head sculpt too.

Since when is Generations that? And By the logic, I don't think Black Shadow or Junkheap should have been in the line either, since when were they "great hits"?

If the designs weren't being used in IDW I might be a little hesitant, but I'm still pumped.

I've wanted a line of cybertronian vehicles since I saw MTMTE, so I can't complain that they're gonna dominate the shelves next year.

Seriously. About the only FOC toy I want right now is Shockwave. And I'd gladly pass on him for a Voyager-sized G1-style version.

Soundwave looks great. I wonder how much influence Bakugan had on them doing these Recordicons. I'm a little disappointed that Laserbeak is a bird instead of the alien thing he was in MTMTE. Ravage is far and away the best looking mold, which is good for me because he's the character I'm most likely to buy. I probably won't get the Recordicons I already have G1 toys of (Ravage aside), but I fervently hope for a Howlback, Garboil, Enemy, and Wingthing.

I'm eager to hear more about these Generations voyagers. Given the return of tape guys, I'm hoping we'll get a nice Blaster; and I hope he'd have a Marvel head, which probably isn't likely. It would be nice to get another crack at G1 Optimus in that size, as I'm not a fan of the Classics mold.

I like Kickback's robot mode a lot, but I can't make any sense of his bug mode. I'll need to stare at the photos a bit longer.

I'm glad they're still doing Generations molds with alternate heads, but the two we know of so far don't interest me. I don't need the tiniest Magnus, particularly when we've got Prime Magnus on the horizon, and I'm perfectly happy with the existing Spy Streak redeco as my Cybertronian Fireflight. I really want to know who else is getting Jazz's mold.

I'm really looking forward to Thundertron, and I'll be interested to see how he and the Star Seekers will be worked into the fiction. Are they for the show? Are they just in games?

So far they're just in the novels.
In Exiles it seemed they were setting them up as a future big threat.
For what medium that's supposed to payoff in we have no clue.

edit: Oh yeah, I forgot, the Star Seekers are involved with that Asian MMO aren't they?

That MP-10 is mine. I know where my local TRU's employees hide things they want for themselves, so I'm sure I'll be able to find one.

I'm just worried about quality control. My TRU MP Roddy came with a broken shoulder and I never saw another one in stores so I wasn't able to replace it.

Did they show a photo of Prime Runamuck, and if so what did he look like? This is important to me as I'm right in the middle of customizing a set of Runatwins.

I believe the reports of Prime Runamuck are actually referencing the Rumble that we already knew about and have seen a few small pictures of (blue car, big piledriver arms).

Yeah, that's a lot of nobodies... Shockwave? Combaticons? Optimus Prime? Jazz? Sideswipe? Starscream? Ultra Magnus? Who are all these losers?

Yeah, I know, FOC isn't G1... it's just most of the same characters from G1 telling the G1 story in the context of a video game series and that's totally different somehow.

I apologize for the snark, but the complaint just seems so misplaced to me. The only reason these don't "count" to some people is because Hasbro tells us they aren't the same... except when they are.

I wouldn't mind him being renamed Runamuck. Maybe we'll get a red Prime Over-Run to go with him icon-fire.gif

I think that perception of Generations as being updated older characters comes from having started out as Classics.

I think it's a good thing that Hasbro is supporting the new video game with toys though. When you like a certain TF cartoon or comic or video game, you want toy versions of those characters. And seeing these FoC designs pop up in TF comics definitely makes me want to own the toys.
Classic style Transformers are my favorite modern TFs as well, but I'm sure we'll see plenty of those next year. As long as Classic style TFs are done every other year, I'm perfectly happy and everyone will get to see their favorite G1 toys updated at one point icon-hotrod.gif

No, Lukeblast, they "don't count" because they are in the wrong bodies as depicted only in one story medium that I never played and don't care about. A bigger Soundwave as ugly spacecar is no more satisfying than the small Soundwave ugly spacecar we got a year ago. This is no different than putting a dozen Hearts Of Steel character models into the greatest hits line at once - they're really not greatest hits.

I don't get people saying that SDCC Bruticus will be hard to get.
It's not like last year's Matrix Prime was immediately scarce.


But he was borring and unexciting. There really wasn't much demand at all.

Look at last years Starscream and Cobra Commander set. That was exciting and lusted for and that was impossible to get almost instantly.


-ZacWilliam, that's what folks are figuring.

People also thought the NYCC Arcee and Bumblebee set was going to sell out in minutes.
I know it is a lot smaller convention, but I'm saying I don't know if these things are really that easy to predict anymore.


Well it did help that it was hard to find the Hasbro booth. Plus, this was Hasbro's first year at NYCC, nobody expected them there, or even guessed they'd have a fairly decent exclusive. By the time it was announced, NYCC was partially sold out.

So, it wasn't like there were that many Hasbro specific fans there, representatives of online stores making purchases, or eBay resellers. That might change this year.

I like the original deluxe Cybertronian Soundwave, but I always thought he was too small compared to Classics Megatron, the main Megs of my collection. If this new Voyager Soundwave ends up being really good, he may well replace that Soundwave as the one I always trio-up with Megs and Cybertron Starscream. icon-ironhide.gif The disc-launching gimmick (and transforming discs!) are extra icing on the cake. icon-hotrod.gif

Now that more people have seen Bruticus up close, does it look like it can be adjusted to have better proportions, or is that as good as it gets? It does look better there than it did in prior pics, but can it be improved?

Unless Hasbro inexplicably removes some plastic covering, like they did with Rodimus. Personally, I'm going to wait for comparisons between the two molds.
