I've been thinking about getting the smaller Prime figures (can't remember what they call them) but I think I'll start off with Prime and Megatron. They are the 9 dollar ones. I think they are the Leader class ones? A lot of detail even though they are smaller and a price my wife won't roll her eyes at me :roll:


Cyberverse. They're pretty awesome. :)

I think the Cyberverse Commander Megatron is a better toy than the $20 Voyager version.


Thanks Sean if I actually read a few posts up I would have known :P

I'm surprised they didn't do Breakdown as a Cyberverse Commander, since he is Bulkheads opposite number.

Yeah, a lot of people are bummed about Breakdown's tiny stature.

Snagged the newest Legion class Prime figures at Target today. EVAC, Mirage, Soundwave and Breakdown are in this set. I also picked up a couple more Vehicons as I am kind of army building that one for generic Decepticon cannon fodder.

Now I can't wait to get Ironhide

Now that I have Ratchet, Bulkhead is my next big want. I need to get my hands on the PVC figures of the kids, too, so I guess I'll buy a set on eBay eventually if Hasbro doesn't get them released in the U.S.

I hope they see a US release. Since Kicker in Transformers Energon, I like that Hasbro hasn't been afraid to experiment with human characters, of course we didn't see another human until the Human Alliance in the Transformers movie lines but still... those PVC figures would be great.

Yeah, but I'll only wait so long before I get impatient and buy a set on eBay. If they haven't announced a release by SDCC, that's probably what I'll do.

What I really want to see... is a classic Quintesson. Alpha-Q just didn't cut it for me. He was cool and even a nice nod to the classic G-1 series but still was too corny in the cartoon.

So Zombie Terrorcon Cliffjumper (using the First Edition mold) is an SDCC exclusive

At my local Target, I picked up Deluxe Knockout and Voyager Bulkhead. Didn't want Hot Shot and someone else beat me to the Vehicon, apparently.

Ok so quick question I haven't always collected transformers but the new Transformers Prime figures are some from the show some not? Like I just saw pictures Of Dead End and Future releases like Rumble and Kup are these future characters from the show?

A good rule of thumb is that repaints (Hot Shot, Dead End, Kup) are not gonna be show characters. This is by no means 100%, but the writers and animators have stated their preference for having unique looks for every character.

Skywarp/Dreadwing being an obvious exception, because they're not going to spend all that money on a CGI model to use it once and then retire it.
