Holy cow, guys, that looks awesome. I can't believe they'd destroy a Big Convoy/Nemesis Prime to make origins Megatron, though (Is nothing sacred anymore!?). I'm diggin' the pic of Depth Charge and Rampage and the Optimus Prima Vs. Megatronica was quite comical.

What was the deal with the giant combiners though? I mean they're huge! Where do you keep those in your house? And when you invite somebody new over and your giving them the tour it's like "and over here's the living room, and these are my giant Transformers, don't minde them..." It's not like you can really hide them.

Very interesting stuff there. I wish I could have been there for the Stan Bush concert indeed. I like the new Till all are one song.

I do find the giant transformers interesting. TriPredRavage makes a good point, you can't hide them, but talk about a conversation starter.

I hate that Green/Brown Cybertron OP. I mean who is he supoosed to be a real OP or some other character and what of that half Rachet and half Megatron but I love the Wreckgar, Wheelie and my favorite Cyclones. But the best thing is that city block thing with Blackout, Brawl and Starscream I'd love to add that to my collection

I kinda think the Green/Brown OP is pretty cool. I like the camo look he's got goin' on. I don't think it would be an great figure to market, but I think he's a cool kitbash.

Dang, I wish that Cyclonus was real. THAT is how Classics should be. I would buy that Cyclonus anyday. Whoever made it should get a job with Hasbro. I'm serious, that is the best fan made figure I have ever seen. And as much as it shocks me to say, that Wheelie looks cool too.
Scorpomike said,  - 2007-08-15 03:30:44
Yeah, I wish they would make a classics Cyclonus and Wheelie. These are great fan made Transformers.
Perceptor said,  - 2007-08-15 17:28:12
I'm TOTALLY with you CB. Would LOVE it if they made a Cyclonus like that. Even w/ how hated Wheelie. I'd buy two to make up for all the wheelie-whiners out there! :)

Hasbro will no doubt give us a classics Cyclonus with boxy limbs, a head twice the size of G1 Cyclonus, weird colors, an alt mode that looks like garbage, a new transformation that prevents either mode from looking like it should, and give it a stupid gimmick. That's how they have done every classics figure so far. Name 1 that looks like the G1 counterpart in both modes, and has a similar transformation to the original. Name 1.

Leo Prime? XD

I don't want to argue with anyone, but I like the Classics and I'm glad they're continuing them. Everyone has a right to their opinion. I think they did a good job on Jetfire, the seekers and Bumblebee. Yeah, there could have been some improvements on some. I thought Astrotrain was the worst. I'm just glad to see them making Transformers again with no gimmicks like minicon powerlink, energon stars, cyberkeys, and automorph. Although automorph wasn't that bad, it can sure use a lot of improvements. Classics Starscream has the most similar transformation to the original. I do like the Robot Masters Starscream better.
Chaos Bringer said,  - 2007-08-16 10:34:43
There is no reason why we couldn't get a Robotmasters Starscream with knees. Instead we got a complete remake with an unnecessary new transformation that ruined the jet mode. And for the sake of having a gimmick (missile launchers) he can't point his null rays forward without folding the wings back. O and they didn't even bother to paint his face yet they over colored the rest of him. Whatever happened to the simplicity of the original designs? Robotmasters SS is sleek and smooth like the animation model while Clasics is covered with grooves and raised areas and is unbelievably boxy.
