Oh wow, PHRASES

Because that's the action feature that kids have been demanding with their toys for years now--phrases!

Only things right now that

Only things right now that pings my interest is "War for Cybertron", Leader-class Starscream, MP Grimlock (can I review it!?), and that Aerialbots Core Combiner.
I don't need a repaint of RotF Leader-class Optimus (not that great a mod, even though the hooks are appreciated), HA Jazz is kinda weird in the thighs department (they're really gonna make a scaled-to-HA Optimus!?), and I'm not a BB fan so I'll skip Battle Ops BB. (Does anyone else think that blue Scion xB is a tribute to "Animated" Soundwave...?)

Hasbro and TakaraTomy: PLEASE make Human Alliance Jolt and Sideways!

(Wow- fail right off the bat... In the images for the new Leader-class stuff, that's not Ironhide, and it's most-certainly not Leader-class. It is [yet another] repaint of Voyager-class Ratchet from the 2007 line.)

EDIT: I just saw something on the Power Core Combiner box. The Skill level for the toys is being changed from 1-through-5 to 0-through-5. I wonder what they have planned...

I guess the skill level 0 is

I guess the skill level 0 is for non transformable toys, like robot replicas, maybe hasbro realized that some parents didn't get they toys because they thought that they had to transform it if the toys were from the TF line

I'm afraid there are just few TFs that I'm willing to get from this list... oh well, will have funds for Gundams and older toys ;)

I really like the look of some of the minicons and vehicles. I have to stop looking, it'll make me want to start collecting Transformers again, and I don't think my wallet can support another collecting obsession.

That leader class Ironhide

That leader class Ironhide is actually just Voyager Ratchet repainted.

Power Core Combiners

The power core combiners & Masterpiece Grimlock are so far the only 2 things that peaks my interests.

However, my demands remain FIRM ... I want the rest of the G1 Japanese imports back!! }:{

Classics Thrust? For cheapies?

Finally I can have my Classics/modern sculpts classic 6 Seekers set completed. (Dirge is the Cybertron Starscream repaint, and Thundercracker is the Titanium.)

Am I the only one who thinks they should have just used the designs from the War Within comic books for the prequel-era figures?

The Forgotten

That was only because die-cast construction is a lost art in this franchise to the team from Galoob who were assigned to the project, & there was no senior input from one who's familiar w/ the craft like the engineering staff from TakaraTomy. Is it not so difficult for Hasbro's toy staff to relearn their errors in their execution & improve them by gaining reference from the original context if they ever revive it?

What was once forgotten in time can be found again. Without a foundation to guide the art to progress, the future will be void.

I didn't really understand a lot of that,but those Titanium toys were absolute garbage. I understand a lot of older collectors miss the days when Transformers were die cast (i.e. when the toys were 5% metal and 95% brittle plastic) but I'd rather have a plastic Megatron that didn't literally fall apart every time I looked at him.

And for Christ's sake Soundwave was wearing a diaper.

Well, to be fair, I had good luck with my WWI Optimus, and I really like Hotspot and Thrust... I really wanted Grimlock and Prowl but was never actually motivated to track them down. They just weren't great toys, and I don't think Hasbro could ever get past the stigma the Titanium line earned. Twice.

Just don't try buying any of them on eBay. Especially that damn Ultra Magnus.

I can't deal with those prices.

lololol.
I came THIS CLOSE to buying UM,just to have a decent representation of him in my collection,but I couldn't bring myself to waste the 15 bucks or whatever he cost at retail.

Promethium-did you ever see Prowl in person? You're not missing much. Get a Prowl Alternator instead.

I never did see Prowl or Grimmy. I wanted them specifically because they're the WWI designs. I know the Alternators are alot better toys :P

Soundwave

Soundwave should've worn a thong like G.I. Joe Megatron did who was the worst of the lot.
