Yeah, I'm trying to cut down on mainline releases too. That Shockwave is an instant buy though. Soundwave definitely maybe.

Shockwave too, maybe Reflector. Soundwave figures are almost always a must for me. Omega would be great, but I have fast run out of room on my collection shelves for massive figures.

Thank Primus they are showing Omega. Over the last year I have been sorely tempted by other sources.

Anyone else think Megs looks like a shrunken Combiner Wars Leader?

After a few G1 heavy lines I was hoping that I was nearly done and could cut down. I have to say this line has some highly tempting elements even if the alt modes don't always tick the right boxes.

Thoughts on all of these figures.

Well... I guess I'm buying yet another Optimus and Megatron set.

I'm not interested in Starscream as my Henkei Seekers are still doing fine for me.

I would get Soundwave and all the cassettes if the battle damage wasn't so severe.

Looking forward to Flywheels.

Finally a Shockwave worthy of my collection.

Brunt looks fine.

I really have to buy three figures to get a single Reflector???

Airstrike Patrol = YAY.

I'm happy with Henkei Ravage.

Can I get a Buzzsaw out of this Laserbeak mould also?

I wanted Scorponok before Omega Supreme, but hey I'm sure I'll get my Scorponok one day.

Shockwave!
Reflector! (x3)
Brunt!
MTMTE Laserbeak!

Megatron’s head ruins him for me, and new Soundwave can’t justify ditching hr legends leader.

I’ve been after a decent Shockwave. This looks good. Voyager?
I will get Soundwave only if he is Voyager sized.
The rest is a must buy even though I’m trying to cut down on TF collecting.

According to a video I saw, Reflector Refraktor will be a deluxe with accessories so you can turn him into one of 3 slightly different bots. Buy 3 of them, you can make a camera mode. So a complete Refraktor is going to be around or more than the price of a leader class toy. Let’s hope he’s not short packed...

Other than that, there’s a great deal here that looks pretty ace!

I dunno, a lot of this looks incredibly underwhelming to me.

The figures all look like decent G1 modern updates in robot mode, but the rest of it feels like a let down.

Statscream looks lazy. It's fairly poor that it's been about 6 years since the Generations like has had a Statscream larger than legends class that actually uses the vehicles canopy for the robot mode chest.

Shockwaves and Soundwave suffer from tbe olde 'Cybertronian vehicle mode is literally just the robot mode sitting/lying down' syndrome.

That said, I do like the look of that Megatron. I also did enjoy a lot of the Autobot reveals from earlier in the year.

More money for Studio Series and 3P stuff I suppose.
