    I need Frenzy and Rumble to pretty much complete my 'con set (bar any MP Shockeave making it ever in the future) and these guys have been tempting me.

    Could you stand 'em next to an MP Seeker?

    I wish I had one the best I can do is either size them next to my mp prime or some of the Hercules bots. But from what I can tell you they are the same size as the G1 bots and fit into any G1 cassette holder

    Ok thanks, might be a bit small for what I need then, I'll just have to be patient for the not MP variants.

    I agree - I love these guys - they only thing missing imho is some weapons, the kind that can attach to their back just like their G1 counterparts. I think that would improve there appearance even more. As soon as Ravage & Ratbat arrive, I'm putting the old G1 missiles on Ravage. Would love to see them make the rest of the cassettes, especially Lazerbeak and Buzzsaw.

    Both look like metrosexual versions of G1 F&R. The chest is such a turn off.

    I honestly think these guys are fairly well put together, but after hearing such bad things about Sonicron, I'll pass.

    oh man, did Rat Bat get nerfed from the design shots to make way some lame Combination feature? Pity.

    The ideas for these are creative, but I'm not so sure about the execution.

    I'd probably get behind these more if they did Autobot cassettes so I'd actually have a reason to buy them.

    I like notRavage. I like notRatbat. I could see them used with a Soundwave reissue. I preordered them, in fact.

    I do not like notRumble/Frenzy. At all. And the "combined modes" look absurd, like asinine afterthoughts cobbled together by the designer's child. Those aren't "modes." They're just stacking the toys on top of each other. Except for notRavage's "missiles," which look, well, terribad.

    And of course Sonicron itself is awful, out-shined in virtually every way by a toy made in the early 1980s.

    No, he wasn't. If you go back to look at the design for Nightfang, the only differences between the design and production pieces are:

    1. The ears aren't separate.
    2. There's only one foot, instead of two separate ones (the only real nerfing from design to production).
    3. The production version is in color. People seem to be reacting based on some awesome imagined color scheme that they thought would be there.

    So, the toy can't even be called nerfed, much less to make way for the combination feature.

    Oh, BTW, I'm sure BTS would say "You're Welcome" for the Senator Ratbat figure, if you were one of the people buying the figs instead of ignorantly complaining about them.
