    I actually almost returned them when i bought them and now they just sit on a shelf in my closet... am i only one who was dissapointed with the toy? i dislike the like legend/scout size robots (i know they are small because of the deluxe size truck mode, so they need to be smaller) and the popping off of the hood and the pieces all together?

    I don't like it. Maybe cause I don't like the twins, but it just doesn't impress me.

    It's okay, but I think it would have been better at a Voyager size class. I am a little disappointed by the hands, and they don't stand terribly well.

    I got them purely for the Ice Cream truck mode. I tf'd them once, I was not impressed, very lacking on many levels, IMO, so I put it in alt mode for good.

    I had high hopes for this one, and much to my surprise, it surpassed them.

    It's one of the greatest transformers of all time.

    i like em.. its a bit of a pain to combine the two halves into the ice cream truck mode, but the individual bot modes are pretty decent, although a bit small.. and im not complaining about the size.. its a pretty cool deal

    I don't own them, but I'm a little worried about buying them. First off I hate the lake of paint details in robot mode, and another thing the gimpy hand each one has bothers me and now I have more concerns after reading the posts on this thread. I'm going to pass on them.

    I only really have a problem with the lack of paint details in bot mode, and the panel hands that each of them have. Otherwise, they're one of my favorite figures.

    THIS.
    And those F****** scalpers that go around clearing them out to sell at jacked prices.... I don't like them.

    The twins look unique at least. There's not much from the ROTF line that I'm stoked on, but they are at the top of the list. Nightbeat and Ejector being runner ups.

    I love the Ice Cream Twins. I don't trust those translucent plastic pegs though.

    You guys should come on down to American Fork. They're a shelf warmer around here. DOUBLE POST FTL.
