They also have an FOC Grimlock - voyager!. The design isn't great but it's good to hear that they are listening to fans and are releasing an appropriately sized Grimlock!

The 65% "unrevealed" doesn't really give me high hopes. How many of these are going to be repaints and then repaints of remoulds?


It is awesome they are doing the Wreckers, but at the same time I am not impressed with how forced they feel. Credit for obscure characters though with new heads. Detract from that with ugly colors that most of the characters never had (specifically the shared orange that would go with the union) and re-used weapons(?)

Looks like Impactor is using the same missile from Seaspray and Topspin is using one of the Ratchet's buzzsaw weapons. I'm probably way off though since I own none of those figures.

Ruination is just an optional bonus really, so I have no complaints.



FOC Blaster is surprisingly cool. Really didn't want to buy Soundwave again, so this a fantastic alternative to own the mold. They gave the mold a new head, chest and the g1 weapon. Hasbro really learned from that lazy mess that is Universe Blaster.

His minions look awesome too!
(Hope Ravage and Steeljaw are not the same mold...)


Probably my favorite item is the g2 Combaticon box. So freaking awesome!

The G2 Bruticus looks like a great packet! I'm glad I nabbed one on Amazon!

I'm glad Toys r us are getting the "china Imports", hopefully, we'll get them as well.

FOC Wreckers? Maybe, depends on the Paint, I'm not sure if I want to own a 3rd version of the mold.

Blaster looks great, A MUST BUY!

Linkin Park Soundwave, maybe, doubtful, but maybe.

Technically the Wreckers could be the 4th version of the mould

1 - SDCC
2 - Standard Release
3 - G2
4 - Wreckers

20 something figures.....and if your like me thinking of an extra set to display in robot mode and bruticus mode.........thats alot.


i really like the Blaster.. and the data disks look good aswell and lets hope toys r us here get the china imports and the thundercracker

More than 25 years on and STILL they get the toy pics wrong Who are these people who take the toy pics? Have they been hiding in a rock that the don't know. Just looking at that Linkin Park Soundwave tape minions with the wrong /switched weaponry is kinda irritating, but, enough of that!

Interesting repaints of the Bruticus Mold... So Ruination is an Autobot now? Hmmm Couldn't they come up with a different name, it just doesnt feel right. Especuially when you knowthat the name has been associated with the Decepticon faction for years.

Hopefully TRU local will have me as well.

I thought the Ruination 'Swindle' was Springer and was shocked when I read the label and turned out to be Roadbuster. The other 'Wrecker' repaints are equally as lame and unrecognizable as the intended characters.

I hope there are better stuff revealed later on but so far, Grimlock is the only interesting thing for me, the rest are rather lame with the exception of MP Thundercracker for those that do not have him yet.
