    Starscream looks much better here. Of course, the giant weapon and ridiculous watermark are in the way, but hey, he looks great.

    God damn the dreads are so cool. I'll be getting at least two.

    Much better pictures, thanks for posting.

    All of these look second-rate. Which is not to say they're particularly bad, but Hasbro can do, and has done better.

    I'm not at all impressed with the new movie toys, and yes I always keep my mind open to the new molds/idea's, but M.Bay is a r-tard. Has anyone else realized these "dreads" are a copy off of the Matrix "dread ghost brothers?"

    Don't get me wrong, cause i like the idea but really...

    Yep that confirms it. The Dread got a claw bayonet.

    Bought so freaking hard.

    The dread is looking very appealing there as is Starscream, I really don't need or want another Starscream but his giant blade thing looks very cool.
    The HA buggy looks decent, will depend on price.

    Hope this guy gets some photos like this of the wrecker posted soon.

    Starscream still could look even better; I'm certain that he's still mistransformed. The panels hanging off his back clearly fold up into the chest a bit.

    I agree. His tailfins seem to be hanging a bit low. Looks like there might be a joint in there so they can rotate up to his shoulders.

    i like dread far more than before. i could see him being modded into a pretty mean looking helspont from wildcats too. overall i havent thought much of the mech tech gimmick though. i get the idea, they are no longer hiding so they can have the huge obvious weapons, but so far i havent seen any i really like.

    The Deluxe figures don't look all that bad now that we've seen them properly transformed.

    Still not a fan of those silly pincers on Dreads and I still think that the MechTech idea is a bit too gimmicky and takes away from the actual toys.

    The dread is certainly looking a bit more appealing. Still on the fence on this guy, and I probably always will be- but as one of the first toys out from the line I wouldn't be surprised if I end up getting one.

    Definitely no interest in that HA toy. I really hope the full size line is continuing with new molds (I've seen stealth BB, but until we actually see a new mold or listing I'm not counting on it- enough lists have leaked now that their absence is mildly concerning).

    Way cool.

    Can't get over how awesome the dred's headsculpt is. probably gonna buy 3...that's if the 3 SUV's in the film are all the same character...

    Probably gonna be buying starscream too, ja'cause.

    Holding off on the non movie figures. ie. The buggy and other scouts.
