Come November, there will be a whole new line of Transformers toys based on the original generation, but tweaked & updated.
Each character in the TRANSFORMERS Classics line will have a more detailed face and body, resulting in a more comparable appearance to the character seen on the original TV show and animated movie. The first wave of the DELUXE CLASS figures will include Bumblebee, Rodimus, Astrotrain, STARSCREAM for about $10. Optimus Prime, and Megatron VOYAGER CLASS figures will be also be available for approx $20 each.
The Starscream and Hot Rod (Rodimus) look freaking awesome!
I may have to pick them up. The others (click here to see) are eh-to-ok. Atleast Megatron is a gun again, albeit a lame "nerf blaster" version. And why is Hot Rod being called Rodimus?
(in super geeky voice): Hel-lo! When he became RODIMUS PRIME at the end of Transformers The Movie, he transformed into a futuristic tractor trailer. CLEARLY he is in his hotrod car mode here, therefore he is HOT ROD.
