Hooray for remolded head on Leo Prime!

All of these are simply AWESOME (kablam!)! I share my love equally towards all of these, but Waspinator is clearly the best! Reminds me of Beast Machines.

Holy Crap. That was unexpected. I love the new head on Leo Prime, but holy crap, I thought for sure he was going to be a full size version of the Legends figure. This is going to completely reinvigorate the Leo Prime/Lio Convoy argument... I was actually really expecting him to sport a Maximal insignia as well...

That new Overload was unexpected as well.

I actually really like the Waspinator design, no matter how reluctant I am to actually have Beast Wars characters in TFA. I'm really diggin the samurai armor Prowl figure and I absolutely cannot wait for Wreck-Garr, he being in my top 5 favorite characters from TFA.

All of them are awesome. The Waspinator being a WASP(duh) is mad cool. I like smokescreen and wreck-garr is interesting!

Waspinator is my top buy!

Must Have Wreck-Gar NOW! Allso like the Waspinator maybe this is what he'll look like in season3 the last time we saw him he was a car. Lugnut was killed off by Omega supreme. And if there's one toy TF Animated needs to put out is Omega supreme! I am soo getting Wreck-Gar!

Animated Wreck-gar gave me a great big feeling of child-like glee. Samurai Podcar Prowl is also quite pleasing. I think there's some sculpting changes to his chest area, and definitely a change of paint applications.

I worry that Wreck-gar's backpack will be an issue, and I am curiously sad at the lack of random accessories. Ah well, I'll give him normal Prowl's traffic light and maybe some of Ratchet's tools (not spools or jewels). Any guesses at the things on his forearms?

I'm disappointed by Waspinator it looks like it has a depressingly uninspired transformation.

I second the calls for Omega, though my wallet and landlord may disagree with me on what I think the appropriate size and cost should be.

I only have TFA Megs, Starscream, voyager Prime and the Dinobots because of quality issues, but I may add Waspy and Prowl IF I can get them out of the packages without breaking them. Dinobot is cool but he looks like he has fists. And I only have 2 words for Leo Prime: AWE! SOME!

HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!!!!

Those are INCREDIBLE!!!!!!


The rest I can live without. I'm actually quite disappointed with the others. Atomic Lugnut is ugly, but he does look like a homage to Euro-G1 Predator Skyquake.

Dinobot is a sad-looking figure. I sure hope the Henkei one is much better looking.

Smokescreen is meh, because he was obvious.

Kudos to the new head on Leo Prime, but his color scheme makes him look like Primal Prime. That's a strange mix.

And I was so sure that Overload would be a redeco of his Armada toy. Oh well, I don't want him anyway.

TOTALLY agree!

Though I think Waspinator looks pretty top notch as well. Now we just need a cybertron mode Bumblebee and green version as "Wasp." Dang, I love Animated!

2 things:

1) Samurai is misspelled.

2) Waspinator is a Decepticon. Wasp is technically still an Autobot. That means there is still an INCREDIBLY unlikely chance that Wasp and Waspinator are not the same transformer.

And technically Sadler, you don't know that that's what happened for Wasp to be come Waspinator. And I'm pretty sure we've all predicted Wasp becoming a new Waspinator.

Hopefully these figures' biographies will come out soon. I really want to know what Leo Prime's is...

Just brilliant these Transformers.
The Overload looks a hommage to Gen1 Micromaster Flak

>>>That means there is still an INCREDIBLY unlikely chance that Wasp and Waspinator are not the same transformer.
If I read your confusing triple backwards doubletalk correctly, you think that Wasp and Waspinator are NOT the same or are? If not, what person in their right mind thinks they are not the same character? It's highly unlikely that the person who thinks that is not nearly as un-insane as Inferno was not!

>>The Overload looks a hommage to Gen1 Micromaster Flak
That's what I thought about Dropshot. If this was Armada Overload I'd snag it in a heartbeat, but why do I need 2 'Formers that are basically the same? And I though Classics Galvatron was a deluxe because there were too many tanks in the line, but now they are adding yet another cheap repaint of a (admitedly really cool) mold that JUST came out not 2 waves ago? I'd rather have had a Voyager or Ultra Galvatron.

So... Waspinator is a wasp! Strange. I thought that Wasp(inator) was going to be a bumblebee redeco. But Hasbro is weird like that...
Inferno said,  - 2008-10-21 10:21:46
The possibility with Wasp(inator) exists that he has a split personality brought on by the fact that he feels betrayed by Bumblebee.

Should this be the case, he could very well be the same persona, perhaps with the idea of the likes of Punch/Counterpunch, Doubledealer or Sideways in mind, that when he is an Autobot he's Wasp and as Waspinator a Decepticon.

I am confident Wasp will become Waspinator in season three.

Wreck-Gar is neat.
