Okay im going to start with the RID toys, man they make the transformers energon toys look good, my son will have fun with this but wow, just wow, i must say RID seem to have the most gimmics ive seen in 1 show line, almost like its a testing ground to see what kids will like.

Okay onto the part i like the most, skyshadow looks great and that mold is going to be fantastic as overlord, broadside is looking solid i love the fact there includeing little airlbots that can detach with him, perceptor well with him turning up it preety much comferms the recent leaked list, brawn well classics legends brawn you had a good run but your spot on the shelf is going to go to a more articulated better looking figure, i cant wait to complete the insectecons, finally it looks like the master class is geting intreasting with lots of diffrent characters turning up it should be fun to see what happens over the next few years with that size class.

Is this the type of event where they may reveal a masterpiece?

Men so disappointed with Hasbro's Broadside and Sixshot.

Fansproject Assaulter (Not-Broadside) is "THE" broadside. Men that sucks, the 3rd Party Broadside is much more closer to the comic. Hmmm... Might do a bit of research on MMC's Sixshot and see the difference.

They look pretty cool, no doubt the Takara versions will look ten times better. I do really like the more G1 angle Has/Tak have been taking lately, and it's kind of sad that we still complain about them not 'accurate' enough to whatever version of the character we decide is official. I don't think these are intended to be the definitive, masterpiece versions. I particularly like the look of Perceptor, Kickback, Brawn and the two headed dragon whose name I forget. I just wish Hasbro would at least paint the fricken wheels. And I agree that the RID stuff just looks nasty.

I prefer Black Shadow out of that mold rather than Sixshot...

Hope Hot Rod can transform without removal of the headmaster.

Hey Kev,

Is your 3rd party "the broadside" a headmaster?
Did you see that next year is 10th year anniversary of the tf movie and for your pleasure they are re-releasing 11 movie figures.

I just want to interrupt this thread with what Tajara is doing with the Alpha Trion mold.

That is one regal as fuuuuuunk Lio Convoy. Looks like they might be using the Sentinel Prime headmaster for it.

There was an unpainted part of Tripticon shown that could transform into city mode, the size of it was huge.

Do we usually see so little? It seems like they don't want to show anything off at all. Everything looks beautiful though. Digging that Repugnus

Its been less and less latly, it is anoying but coming into a movie year it kinda makes sense.

From what some tfw members are saying there pumping the breaks and aiming for a wave each quater, i guess that easier on our wallets

Just out of curiosity:?
Why leader and Voyager Optimus :?
Are we going to see leader /Voyager waves of the same figs :?
Was hoping for leader class Megs but I do like the look of the Sharktacon , will grab 3 of those to make a set .
