In two days I found Wave 1 of the beast hunters Prime. I couldn't believe it! Usually we are the last to get any type of new product line. Doesn't make sense cuz the headquarters for Hasbro is 1 state away from us! I think I'm just missing Voyager Predaking? In any case, I'll get my hands on him pretty soon.
Here we have from left to right:
Bumblebee, Lazerback, Soundwave, and Wheeljack
The most shocking is bumblebee. I love this mold! He has a battle helmet on. It kinda looks like an armor helmet that a knight would wear. They gave him enough missles for 3 transformers! He is defiantly much beefier and intimidating than your usual kid loving bumblebee.
Lazerback is pretty cool. The colors are nice. Head is awesome.
Soundwave is VERY similiar to the regular Prime version. They added a few things like the decepticon symbols on his wings. The yellow accent is a nice touch to the greyish-blue color. His weapon is not the greatest. This is soundwave Hasbro! He needs his blaster! His chest holds Ravage. He still is my favorite decepticon of all time.
Wheeljack's mold is unbelievable! There is nothing I can complain about. He has this gigantic staff/sword that seems to just work for him.
Overall, I'm liking this line very much. It's been a while since I've been excited about a new line coming out. For the past couple of years, I just feel as though they are getting cheaper. The quality just wasn't there. I have many guys that have little paint bloches that I had to scrape off. Or arms or legs would just come off when transforming them. Problem after problem. It was getting frustrating to the point where I stopped looking for some plastic and just bought them when I was out. Now...I'm back in the groove because of the Beast Hunters!
Me? I'm a Transformaniac through and through. I've been collecting for over 20 years and my collection is starting to outgrow "The Vault"! I collect, maintain and refurbish my Transformers and I am always looking for new (and old) ones to add to my 900+ plus collection. Feel free to check out my collection, as it's ever-growing and I'll be updating my blog with new Transformers as soon as I get them.
