    Well I have a confession to make, I am really, really, very much diggin the Kiss Player lineup thus far. Despite the creepy concept, the toys are very quite good and I really hope we get more of these toys in the future. Just got Autorooper in the mail today and again the line just does not disappoint. Very much love the head on this guy, despite the mixed reaction to it. Even his chaingun pylon thingy I'm really starting to get into, that and the pylons by themselves are quite a neat little accessory, especially if you are fortunate to have somewere to display it.

    But overall this line has just taken what has probably been the greatest mainline to a new level. All three so far have taken each toy and have either remade the concept in a very good way (Hot Rod and Autorooper) and or made a substandard toy into a treasured gem (CONVOY!!!). As has been said by many who own these guys, wile now plastic instead of die-cast, you still get that Binaltech feel to these guys, and no paint chipping. The quality has just been remarkable on each one, especially on Prime and Rodimus. Cost has also been a turn off but I tell you, once you crack one open you know were that extra cash went into. The accessories have in many cases also been great additions despite even my inital skeptisism. Wile Prime's surfboard and Autoloopers pylon gun may raise eyebrows to many, once you actually get down to playing around and posing them they are very quite neat.

    Anyway that's just my 2 cents on the line so far. To be honest these guys have really peaked my interest a lot more then Classics have thus far and are really keeping me into TF's in a big way at the moment. Been a huge Alt/BT fan so far and these guys just take it to another level. The henti'eqe aspect I know turns a lot of people off and for good reason, but if your an Alternator fan I really think people need to look past it as the toys themselves are very much top notch stuff.

    I know this wont stop the haters, but anyone else out there liking what were seeing so far? Please keep discussion civil, and not post just to trash, as I think we've pretty heard all of it before.

    Oh and pic's :D

    Seriously, if they weren't so damned pricey I'd be going completionist on 'em if not simply for the remolds and nifty weapons. I love the traffic cone gun.

    I've dug these guys right from the get-go. I think they're awesome and a good follow-up to Binaltech. Can't wait to get Autorooper.

    Autorooper looks good. It may be the second kissplay I buy besides Hot Rod.

    Rodimus looks totally badass. However seeing Prime & KP Convoy next to each other like that I definitely prefer Prime.

    I hate the little girl concept and the fact that they jacked up the price as a result of it, but I didn't let that stop me from buying Hot Rodimus and Autorooper. And I will not hesitate to buy Legion, if they ever release him. I really want an Alternator/Kiss Players/Binaltech Megatron.

    Considering it cost more than a Binaltech and has no diecast in it, Takomy could've splashed out the extra 5 cents or so and added black paint to the gaps around the joints.

    Overall, it's still nicely done though.

    Hot Rod is definately the best of the Bunch. Then again I haven't opened COnvoy yet since I have a Regular Alt. Optimus and an Alt Nemesis.

    same here

    the only thing that's preventing me from buying KP is the cost. I've never had a problem with the line. The toys are great and the concept is hilarious

    Dammit man, way to jack up my desire for Autolooper just hours after I drop over $100 on new clones.
