    11:14


    Comment From Triblurr
    So, legions designs scaled up with better articulation?

    11:14

    Like the Legion - higher up like on the shoulders

    11:13


    Comment From Calabask
    Do his wings stop mid back again? Or are they placed so they don't look awkward? on Predaking.

    11:13

    Hasbro said they were focusing on making toys simpler to play with and investing the savings into larger toys and better decos.

    11:13

    Bumblebee looked simplified, the others looked decent

    11:12


    Comment From JohnRedcorn
    how is the detailing on the bigger TFs? simplified?

    Some good stuff there. Generations is looking amazing, even the Beast Wars stuff but I don't collect any Beast Wars characters.

    Beast Hunters looks doomed. Those upscaled Legions/Commanders look absolutely horrible. Looks like I am done with Prime once I find all my Legion Terrorcons at retail.

    Oh man, I'm all over Cosmos and Swerve! Hope they give us more G1 minibots in this scale! Can't believe they're gonna reissue Predaking!!! Have they said how it will be available? I'm assuming it's some kind of exclusive.

    I'm all over that Soundwave when/if it arrives over here.

    Also, LOL at the poor transforming job on Frenzy (or is it Rumble?). They also have Lazerbeak and Buzzsaw's fins in the wrong position.

    Need MP soundwave and that Cosmos. Generations deluxe look nice but overall another lean year of TF spending for me.
