    Does it Transform fine? Have decent vehicle and robot modes?
    If there is a yes to these two questions, they can throw in as many gimmicks and lights as they want.

    But, I'm not gonna buy it.

    Well, look at the light up gimmick on MP Grimlock for example. That doesn't get in the way at all and possibly even makes the toy a bit more fun.

    Then again, some of the battery boxes in some leader class figures could be said to compromise the transformation potential. ROTF Prime gets away with it, but with some others it does feel a bit like you are moving arms and legs parts around a solid core, which is often quite heavy and can hinder the figure's ability to stand (ROTF Jetfire!).

    I personally don't like electronic gimmicks on Transformers because the batteries will eventually die. Cybertron Dark Crumplezone had to have his removed because while his batteries were dying i could hear him electronic gimmick go off every 5 minutes. It scared me for nights will tried to go to sleep.

    It's spooky because Dark Crumplezone is undead.
