what's an AOE review

So SDCC's Hasbro panel was today! Stuff happened, let's talk about it.

I guess we've already seen everything for AOE then. I give up hope on a Deluxe Stinger. Fucking bullshit, you could have at least given us a retooled Bumblebee instead of that shitty Hot Shot/Tracks/whatever. 

So Generations next year is literally just combiners, at least on the Deluxe/Voyager end. Superion, Menasor and... an Optimus Prime combiner. Sure!

The Aerialbots look neat, the combined mode looks good, though it's really... wide. Particularly the legs. The individual bots look cool, but they're VERY G1, not much update to their designs. Also, is the helicopter even supposed to be Slingshot? It's a helicopter and not a jet, and 'Alpha Bravo', which is the must stupid name I've heard in a while, isn't even close. He kinda reminds me of a mix between G1 and RB Blades.

Menasor is... okay-ish? The proportions are pretty bad. The head sculpt looks awesome, but it's tiny, and like Superion, he's super wide. The individual robots look way better than the combined form. It's amazing how good that Motormaster looks considering it's that awful Optimus mold we saw at Botcon. I dig Offroad as a different character from Wildrider, and is Dead End using an exhaust pipe as a club??

New look at the new RID cartoon. Looks very okay. It's WIP, obviously, since the show isn't out until next year. The designs are still really generic to me, having a hard time getting into this. But holy shit, Strongarm. The design isn't anything too special, but goddammit, it's a fembot, a bulky fembot at that. How can I not love her? Underbite is neat, like that it's a beast that turns into a vehicle.

As for the toys, the One Steps and Legions hold no interest to me. Deluxe/Warrior Bumblebee looks alright, the leg kibble is a bummer, hope it doesn't limit him too much. He's in a pretty bad pose though, so I'll need to see more of him. I want to see Strongarm's mainline toy.

So yeah, pretty much it. I'm so disappointed in the lack of Stinger, but what was revealed is pretty cool. Hope we get giftsets of the combiners, getting the individual members might be a bitch considering they're basically made up of six figures each. Also, apparently we're getting a Legends Huffer. I want a Pipes retool.

I hope that Stinger gets released as a shiny Prime Knockout.

Maybe Hasbro intended for the Autobots to have an orgy with Galvatron and the Dinobots to mess with Lockdown.
