    Omega Sentinel
    (Articulation: head, shoulders, claw arm bicep where the silver arm meets the blue shoulder, larger gun on left arm shoulder & spinning missle launcher. All 360 degree.
    His knees allow for his torso to fall backward about 90degrees. His kneecaps are buttons, or targets to hit, to cause his torso to fall back when both hit. (just like the AT RT's knees)
    No waist articulation or any rolling wheels.

    Bottom of Attactix wheels. It's like this for all of them.
    The small black wheel clicks when it rolls, to count the movements, or steps they take

    For anyone curious about the SW figs that comes with it, the little Vader is badass!

    Vader & Luke have spring loaded waists. Pull their sabers back and let go for swinging action.

    I noticed the starwar guys are very detailed, when compared to the marshmellowy transformers figures :(

    Yeah, the TFs really got the short end of the stick in this set. Omega Sentinel isn't that bad, but Prime and Megatron just look terrible. Given how much they had to deform Prime's backpack, legs and arms, I don't understand why they even bothered sculpting him in Super Mode. Megatron's a little better, but that's not saying much.

    Great pictures, though!

    Picked the set up as well, more out of it being an oddity then anything else. Don't plan on opening it either. Yes, that's right, a MISB oddity collector. SO WHAT! :p  :lol 

    It looks pretty on my oddity shelf. :D

    Shame about the paint apps but the set still looks fun for kids. I hope they'll be available in Aus.

    Thank you for the pics, CM. Vader looks great!

    There was a full display of ALL the upcoming TF Attacktix figures at the fan event in Florida this last weekend (no idea where they got them all). They look GREAT and the game is a lot of fun.

    I want that Omega Sentinel, but I don't really want the other stuff in this set... don't suppose they'll be selling him separate anytime soon?

    Edit: hey, are they permanantly fixed to those bases/stands?

    It seems to be a mixture of tabletop battle games and Crossbows & Catapults. I plan on getting a few packs each wave, though I'm not going to hunt down every last one of them. It looks fairly fun.

    And the Attacktix figures have articulation? I didn't know that, I thought they were just statues that fired missiles... cool...

    Don't know if they'll sell OS seperately, but you know Hasbro, they probably will. While painting him yellow or something

    The bases are permanently attached, but nothing a custom hand could'nt fix.


    I urge everyone who has these, and going to Botcon, to Bing em!!! We'll have Lunchbattles! :lol

    Like AMS, I saw these at the TRU fan event this past weekend. They look a lot better than the SW ones do. The proportions aren't nearly as wacky because most of the oversized bits are the robots guns.

    It's a fun little game and a lot of kids seem to enjoy it.

    Let's not let this become like a SW board where we have idiots saying "They should spend more money on Classics/Alternators/ mainline instead of this KIDDY crap!!!!111one" (bolded part meant to point out the irony in such statements :) )

    Man, I'm really drawn to those...the game looks potentially quite fun as a crazy "let's shoot missles at things and knock them over" deal.

    You know, I think those figures would actually look pretty nice if you painted them up, detailed them and gave them a light weather wash.

    As they are now, they look like birthday cake decorations.

    They are pretty average. That Vader looks nice, though.

    (OT, Ops, that's Genesic Gaogaigar (PVC version). Check out the Brave thread for more pics of him).

    Round II- Titaniums

    Some clos-er ups at the Titaniums. Figured Id throw em here since they're about the same thing.
    Except diecast. And smaller.

    They also have poseable arms & heads (some knees)
    and removeable guns & swords.
