The Generations Thread

There was a TON of new figures announced today.


A bunch are Walmart exclusives - Elita-1, Bumblebee, Earthmode Soundwave, and the Netflix Siege repaint figures. It looks like the spoiler box will be a Nemesis Prime.

Amazon has two two-packs: Earthmode Ironhide and Prowl, and a Ramjet/Dirge pack.

There were also three new Generations Selects: Greasepit, Hubcap, and Exhuast. (Yes, that’s how they’re spelling it.) The Rotorstorm repaint of Spinister is also confirmed to be getting a new head sculpt, too, which is really nice.
 
Saw the pictures of the reveal. Bumblebee looks good. It's great they made him look like a VW. But him being a Walmart exclusive is annoying.

The third line of War for Cybertron was also revealed: "Kingdom".

Looks like next will be Beastwars.
 
the Seeker two pack has arrived (a lie, it arrived last week, three days after ordering !! I just forgot to post about it) They look really good. The colors of Thundercracker and Skywarp really pop out.

He’s not available in the US yet, but every review basically is saying he’s a mini-Masterpiece figure.

Oh, I absolutely agree with that. The engineering is simpler but the figure doesn't feel cheap. Lots of nice little details sculpted on it.

Speaking of masterpiece figures, I saw the first pictures of Beast Wars Megatron and he looks great. I'm not really interested in Beast Wars but maybe I will get him
 
Normally I don't go for the smaller figures but gods damn it if the little baby Prime doesn't just look adorable.

I really hope tiny Prime is a sign of an improved Legends (small) class of figures. The third party offerings in that scale have blown away the official stuff for years, and it looks like Hasbro has been trying to step up their game.

I’m sooooo excited for Kingdom. The Beast Wars figures look amazing.

I haven’t been disappointed by any Earthrise figures yet, but yeah, Arcee is an absolute shellformer of a figure. There’s just no way to work that bot mode into a car otherwise.
