    Anyone here like the new Bot Shots? I've been trying to avoid them. They're cute, but I didn't want to have to collect these. But after seeing the ToyFair pics of new ones...to hell with that earlier analogy. These things look awesome and I want them.

    Are they worth it though? I don't want to be disappointed. Also, which one should I start out with? Barricade or Starscream?

    I might buy one or two for shits and giggles, but I'm not going to collect them.

    And how the hell do swords beat guns?

    Maybe the designers had just watched Optimus and Ratchet carving up 'Con zombies on Prime?

    I kind of like the look of these. Starscream is a must get for me, to add to my collection. Maybe Thundercracker too.

    I like these cute things. Cheaper than legion figures at some stores. I've opened optimus and barricade and I would recommend barricade to anyone looking to start a collection.

    I'm gonna get a couple of them, specifically the cutest ones. Right now, that's Bee, Mirage, and Starscream.

    Found some at TRU today - got Optimus, Bumblebee, and the last of Barricade and Starscream!

    Very cool in hand, I can see these getting addictive!

    Picked up Optimus and Bumblebee last night. Far from regretting it. They're cute little things. I don't even care about the "game."

    Still need to buy Starscream. Then I'll choose whether or not to pick up every G1-based character. Or maybe even just get all of them.

    I'm going to have to make shelf space.

    They are really cute, but with all the stuff coming out this year from Hasbro and the stuff coming out from Lego I'm not sure about starting up yet another part to my hobby.

    My guess is this:

    Fist is rock, because the symbol for rock is a fist.
    Sword is scissors, because a scissor consists of two blades.
    Gun is paper, because everything else was taken.

    But in this form it doesn't make any sense.

    I'm thinking about getting a few like Optimus, Ratchet, and Skywarp if/when they get to him. Now if they were blind packed, forget it.

    My favourite is probably Starscream, believe it or not.

    The rigs (Prime and Megs) are quite clever, these have switches on the bottom of the trailers that when raised lock the trailers shut, ie, when the trailers not on the ground the release buttons don't work.

    'Buttons'? Yeah, each trailer has 2 release switches, the top button and a button at the back of the trailer. Press the release and the trailer will pop open, set the launcher and the same button will release the launcher. The button on the back of the trailer is so you can shoot one Botshot into the back of another rig, which will trigger that off. Theoretically, get enough rigs and you can have a big botshots domino setup.

    Love the rigs.

    In fact love these as a whole, relatively inexpensive and fun. But yeah, Prime is probably one of the weakest, because his release mechanism is very twitch, but he's still pretty awesome.

    Can't wait for more, specifically Jetfire, so I can recreate Fire in the Sky with Botshots!

    Got Bumblebee, Starscream, Barricade, Optimus Prime and Clear Sentinal Prime. These little buggers rule. So cool in hand. My only gripe is Optimus. He is so Sensitive. Transforms itself if I sneeze......from across the house.

    Yeah, I can't touch either Optimus or Barricade without a panel popping out on one of them.

    I'll probably still check it out to get an idea of scale. If the scale is right I'm buying two Jetfires so I can use one as parts for my legends Jetfire.
