I got my first TF Prime tf, Starscream and he is outstanding in bot mode, so-so in alt mode though excessive undercarriage kibble is par for the course for any TF planes.
In terms of poseability, TF Prime Screamer is right up there with TF Animated Blurr! Can't wait to find Arcee.
I picked up a Junkheap at Target this morning and left another on the shelf, along with two Sky Shadows. PM for location in Los Angeles.
Legends might one day give me a chance to re-collect a G1 assembly.
I don't do it now for the basic reason of money and especially space.
I like to write lists, but here's where you guys can help me to pick out the best of each - and I like them reasonably in scale to one another so the Classic / Generation Decepticon jets wouldn't do (too small) if you're going to use anything larger than Cyberverse (and I want to use Deluxe) for Autobot Cars:
Megatron - definitely the Masterpiece
Starscream - the Masterpiece again
Soundwave (G1 tape deck) - probably the Hasbro anniversary re-issue?
Ravage (the one that comes with Genertions or Classics(???) Hound
Rumble? Perhaps that tank figure is a better Rumble in robot mode?
Thundercracker - MP
Skywarp - MP
Devastator / Constructicons - that 2nd party manufacturer that's making "Goliath" or something sounding like that
Blitzwing - the Classics
Astrotrain - the classics
The G1.5 Decepticons don't exist as large enough figures. The Deluxe sized ones will not do.
Optimus Prime - MP
Jazz - Generations / Classics - not sure which is which
Wheeljack - Gen.
BumbleBee??? (needs to be the Volkswagon in a Deluxe size - but maybe there's a 2nd party)
SideSwipe - Cl
Sunstreaker - Cl
Ironhide - ??? Or is the red version of the DOTM Voyager a good idea here?
Ratchet - the rescue Ratchet paint job of the Voyager figure from DOTM / ROTF I guess. 2nd party fig?
Mirage - Cl
Hound - Cl / Gen
Red Alert Gen
Powerglide - Gen Voyager (but should be a Leader Class size)
Warpath - ??? (needs to be at least a Voyager size)
Grimlock - MP - but should be Ultimate Size (as should any other Dinobots)
Hey - they should make a MP Jetfire! (perhaps in the Old School style?)
Transforming Gingerbread House! http://foodbeast.com/content/2011/12...o-cool-for-us/
Apparently, the last waves of the DOTM line will be Asia-only. Way to fail, Hasbro.
Fall of Cybertron figures:
Shockwave looks SO DAMNED GOOD! The others are degrees of "eh, fine I guess": Prime is tubby but sharp, Jazz feels like the same car bots we get a dozen times a year, and Bruticus looks like a work in progress still. But Shockwave, wow!
Shockwave does look nice. I guess both my Decepticon "Waves" in Classics will have to be Cybertronian forms. :D
No Grimlock? Really? After him being the entire focus of the first teaser, and making fandom go Apeface?
My guess is they're saving a Grimlock reveal for SDCC. They don't have a larger SKU for Generations, so I'd bet they're planning a larger Grimlock as a store exclusive, I'll guess Target since they've had a stronger relationship with Target over TF the last few years.
