    Initial thoughts:

    Motormaster is great looking in both modes. The trailer forming a skeleton to bolt the other Stunticons on will be controversial I suspect, but I like it. I never liked the Combiner Wars cars being on the shins (tops forward) as opposed to the calves (tops backward). So this Menasor will be for me. Unfortunately he will not scale against CW Devastator and will be about Siege Jetfire height.

    Blitzwing's plane mode is ugly with that junk underneath it.

    I like Elita-1 - nice G1 cartoon version.

    And now I'm for certain not to get any of the Prime figures - just not Transformers Prime enough.

    I prefer the limbs on CW Menasor. Honestly, if not for the fact that CW Motormaster is a bad toy and that LY Motormaster appears incompatible with the CW limbs, I wouldn't bother collecting all the LY Stunticons.

    But I understand why LY Menasor looks the way he does. I don't see the need for any controversy... this just means that we collectors have a choice now.

    Siege Jetfire is 27cm and off memory CW Menasor is approx. 29cm. So if LY Menasor is the same size as Siege Jetfire, then he'd be close to the size of CW Menasor (give or take a few centimetres). Unless you wanted a Titan Class sized Menasor like CW Devvy or Predaking, but yeah... those are uncommon.

    He actually is compatible with cw limbs at least at the knee from what we can see
    The trailer Ďskeletoní uses cw ports to attach to the thighs and Iím assuming torso

    The only one of these I'm not going to get is Knockout, and that's purely because I don't collect Prime. Everything else is a must-have.
    I have a list of all G1 characters that have been released in CHUG form. You can find it here. Please feel free to let me know if I got anything wrong so I can fix it.

    The push for G1 cartoon accuracy has seen me taking a hiatus from collecting over the last little while. With reference specifically to Motormaster and Blitzwing, fake parts on a mainline, retail figure is a dealbreaker to me.

    The Delta Magnus figure looks great, on the other hand. I never bought the ER Magnus mold and I think it looks much better in these colours than in the Ultra Magnus colours.
    I'm really just here for the free food and open bar.

    I Like quite a bit of what has been presented. Definitely want that MotorMaster. I think the trailer being used like that is quite acceptable. If you check out his base mode, you can see the skeleton's knees use a joint that looks suspiciously like the CW connection joint.
    I thought CW Motormaster was a good toy. It Just made a horrible torso for Menasor. Why they designed the hips that way I don't understand.

    Ultra Magnus there is a very nice take. The shattered glass and Diaclone options is a great idea. I approve highly! Not that I've seen a Shattered Glass toy available through official channels in Japan, so I'd be surprised if this one made it...

    Wildrider has a VERY nice vehicle mode, I just hope the bonnet kibble on his back can compact down a bit more.
    Jhiaxus looks very interesting. He seems remarkably lacking in plane parts, so I am very curious to see his vehicle mode.
    Elita one, cut vehicle mode, but not for me.

    Man, the Prime toys takes just aren't hitting the mark at all. I liked that Knockout was a bit of a slim pretty-boy. But this one is just another chunky car bot. Which is normally fine, but not for Knockout. Its just another car bot with a Knockout head.
    Tarantulas, well, I'm sure some people will be happy, but not being Transmetal makes me sad. Why does the Transmetal side of Beastwars get shoved aside?
    blitzwing... Nah.
    Soundwave, oh man, the Siege version? Ha ha ha ha ha. Wow.


    Oh, just found Jhiaxus' page on Amazon... Now I see why there is very little jet on that robot mode, PASS.

    Stunticons will be mine!

    Iím very impressed with these reveals. They definitely look a lot more like adult collectible kind of figures than the more toy-ish style we saw in Prime Wars or even WFC, which I think looks very professional.

    Jhiaxus and Motormaster in particular look like well-designed figures. Elita is nice but we just received one in the Netflix line, so Iím not sure if Iíll end up grabbing one. Knockout looks fantastic, as does Wildrider from the front. Wildrider has a strange amount of kibble, but if itís to ensure the fit in combiner mode then I am not as fussed. Dare I say they could go a little more stylistic on the Prime figures, some of the angles are a big part of their silhouette and are brought way down for these G1-ish figures, maybe too much for someone like Knockout.

    Could end up being another golden age with Legacy given these first couple wavesí offerings, but weíll see I guess. It seems like the trend for the CHUG lines for a few years now has been pushing the bar higher and higher. Maybe itís my grumpy adult fan hat on here but I donít know why we need to have the big translucent red/blue pieces on everything. It seems they otherwise got the picture that most fans just want nice figures with budget going towards the best paint and plastic quality, but still the line-wide gimmicks show up every time. If anything, Iíd much rather they ditch that in favour of something like Marvel Legendsí build-a-figure pieces, with less of a chance of being chucked in every collectorís random miscellaneous crap drawer.

    Seriously translucent guns, why???

    I rarely buy anything outside of MP, but definitely in for the stunticons.and Jhiaxus. Will probably resist Tarantulas even though he looks great.
