CLASSICS 1.0

    "Classic" is actually just a classification within this line, which is merely "The Transformers", but while I briefly toyed with calling this directory "The", I decided to stick with the fan-tendency to just call everything under this group Classic. It also includes new Mini-Cons, and possibly a few other things, as an interim line between Cybertron's end in 2006 and the movie line in 2007. A sort of Neo-G1/G2 line, reimagining classic characters without creating a whole new storyline.


LEGENDS OF CYBERTRON
    A $4 sub-basic price point, with smaller versions of other toys. Unknown yet if there will be new molds for Classic, or just recolors.

WAVE ONE - REVIEW Recolors of Cybertron figures. Didn't buy Perceptor.

  • Trypticon - Purple and teal recolor of Scourge.
  • Fireflight - Jetfire in Powerglide colors.
  • Perceptor - CD Red Alert in red and black.
  • Leo Prime - Leobreaker in Lioconvoy colors.
WAVE TWO - More recolors. REVIEW. Only have Menasor and Jetfire, got guest comments on Bumblebee and some comments on Whirl based on pictures.
  • Menasor - Purple and black Optimus Prime.
  • Bumblebee - Yellow Hot Shot.
  • Jetfire - White and red Thundercracker.
  • Whirl - Blue Evac.
BASICS
    So far, the only things I know about at this price point are the new Mini-Con sets.

WAVE ONE - REVIEW

  • Dinobots: Swoop (pteradon), Knockdown (triceratops) and Terrorsaur (T.rex). These are the first beast-form Mini-Cons. Autobots.
  • Demolition Team: Wideload (dump truck), Sledge (bulldozer/power shovel) and Broadside (tank). Decepticons.
  • Night Rescue Team: Firebot (fire engine), Strongarm (police car) and Divebomb (rescue helicopter). All new molds, you can look at it as an update of the Emergency Team. Autobots.
WAVE TWO - REVIEW
  • Predator Attack Team: Snarl (tiger), Dreadwing (falcon/eagle), Overbite (wolf). More beastforms. Decepticons.
  • Dirt Digger Team: Oil Slick (muscle car), Dirt Rocket (street cycle), Grindor (monster truck). Information warriors. Decepticons.
  • Clear Skies Team: Thunderwing (F-14), Steel Wind (A-10), Nightscream (dragon). Environmentalists. Autobots.
DELUXES
    The core of the Classics line, called Classic Deluxe.

WAVE ONE - REVIEW

  • Bumblebee - Melange of several compact cars.
  • Starscream - F-15 fighter jet.
  • Rodimus - 1978 Dome futuristic sports car.
  • Astrotrain - Bullet train meets space shuttle.
WAVE TWO - REVIEW (now has both)
  • Mirage - Formula racer.
  • Grimlock - Robotic T.rex. Very shortpacked.
WAVE THREE - REVIEW
  • Cliffjumper - Straight recolor of Bumblebee.
  • Ramjet - Remold of Starscream.
PLUSHFORMERS - REVIEW
  • Slumberbee - Not quite a Beetle, but also not the same vehicle as the non-plush Classics Bumblebee. Fully invertible plush.
  • Softimus Prime - G1-style truck mode, partially invertible plush.

VOYAGER
    The Mega class is called Classic Voyager in Classics, with a $20 price point.

WAVE ONE - REVIEW

  • Optimus Prime - Semitractor cabover style.
  • Megatron - A blaster in nerf-ish colors.
WAVE TWO - REVIEW
  • Jetfire - Futuristic jet based on the F-14 with a little F-15 tossed in.
TWO PACKS
  • Optimus Prime vs. Megatron: The Ultimate Battle - At the Voyager price point, two Deluxe-sized figures of the two, entirely new molds. Not a store exclusive, but does seem to be hitting Toys R Us first. Comes with a DVD that the packaging advises is "not a toy". Megatron's decent, Prime suxx0rz.
  • Ultra Magnus vs. Skywarp: Battle for Autobot City - This is a Target exclusive, recolors of Voyager Prime and Starscream together at the Voyager price point. Much better buy than Ultimate Battle, despite being recolors.
    • Tweaked Ultra Magnus - I decided it needed a little something, but not a full "map the G1 color scheme onto the robot" job. Mainly painted the helmet and added a few bits of red, also put a layer of gunmetal on the gun.
SPECIALS
  • Pepsi Optimus Prime - Recolor and remold of G1 Optimus Prime (or, more likely, G2 Prime) in full corporate shill mode. Won it from Pepsi's "Transform Your Summer" promotion.
SUPER or larger
  • 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime - A recolor of this toy in Classics packaging. Comes with a stand that talks (badly) at the press of a button. Guest review by Justin Anderson.

  • Constructicon Devastator: A Wal-Mart exclusive gift set of the whole Constructicon Maximus set from Energon recolored and renamed, with a more unified color scheme.

  • Masterpiece Starscream: Another Wal-Mart exclusive, this is the Japanese Mastepiece Starscream redone in cartoon-style colors.
