That's two different TFs right? Not Wgar's alt mode?

And yes. Nice.

tbh, I'm well chuffed with all these.

Whilst the comic is going up it's own arse, the toys are pretty special.

I've not bought a TF for yonks, think I might get a bit thrifty this arvo

They did Straxus! We can but pray...

Agree that Thunderwing looks a bit weedy though. He should be voyager size really.

Yeah, was not best pleased when they didn't "voyager" Galvatron, and again this is a bit gash.

Nice toy though.

I've seen some people do some ace bashes for voyager Galvy's though.

Yes, it seems the toyline and the comic line are going in equal and opposite directions, although the toys have been on an upward trend ever since the Alternators/BT, I believe.

But Voyager Grapple? That certainly would not have been my first pick. Unless it's got a working winch. That would be cool. Not as cool as a Repaint Inferno with working water cannon, but cool.

Deluxe WFC Cliffjumper, Skullgrin, and Thunderwing
Scout Windcharger and someone else
Jazz, Tracks, and some HFTD repaints
New Power Core Combiner 2-packs
New PCC 5-packs: Dinobots and Constructicons

Also, There's going to be a new G2 Laser Rod Optimus Prime. Sadly, I can't post pics.


Well, I could, but the Collectors Club might put a contract on my head.

Wreckers - COMBINE!


Combining Dinobots have always been a bit of a hit and miss thing, I feel this official one's more of a miss than many kitbashes have been...

Windcharger and Jazz are just <3.

Tracks looks a little tubby.

Thunderwing looks much better in these new pictures.

MP Grimmy is a fantastic figure. You could be critical and say he is a larger, more flexible version of the original figure. The transformations are very similar.

The Bruticus upgrades are stunning, as single figures or as part of the new Bruticus.

Warbot Defender is really nice but perhaps a crosses that line where he is a bit too complex to transform to be fun, if you know what I mean?

The Generations figures are mostly great but I'm personally not keen on WFC Bumblebee or Prime. BB looks like a spud on sticks in robot form. The others are fab.

If pushed I'd probably pump for the Bruticus upgrades, especially as they will be harder to get in a few months and I believe Grimmers is getting a UK release.
