    I'm on the fence with the twins. They are awesome in the show, bu the toys don't wow me. I might get them, but not anytime soon.

    Didn't the first time I saw them. But after picking them up....right there with Blurr and Oil Slick as best deluxe(s) in the line.

    They have way more charm and appeal than they initally appear to.

    Yea I was totally on the fence with the twins too. I'm completely in love their characters in the show, so I broke down and picked up the set yesterday on clearance at Target. These figures definitely look a little wonky in the package, but after I cracked them open I totally fell in love with them. I seriously have not been able to put them down since I picked them up. They have just as much character as any of the other figures in the line. These two are definitely worth the $20.

    I wanted to buy them for the sake of having them. But everytime I saw them, I just kept looking them over. I think it was when I was in a Toysrus and I realized that $20 is the right price for two deluxe size figures that I finally broke down and bought them.

    And I'm so glad I did. I haven't really put them down since I got them. I just have so much fun transforming them between their individual robot modes and Safeguard. Definitely worth the money.

    I found a second set the other day for $5.99, so I now have the Twins posed in front of Safeguard mode. I agree with the above, full of character and some of the best deluxes in the line despite their simplicity.

    These two are probably my most played with Animated toys. They have their flaws, but they're just FUN.

    Got them when they first came out. Honestly, they do nothing for me whatsoever.
    When I got them, I transformed them, then to Safeguard mode, back to individual bots and have been on the shelf ever since.
    I much prefer Jazz and Swoop over the twins anyday.

    I've never yet seen them in a store so I can take the opportunity to pass on buying them. So the sooner I see them the sooner I can not buy them.
