    These all look great to me. I am glad that they upscaled these newer figures hopefully Huffer and Seaspray are upscaled down the line. The only thing that bothers me is Beachcombers legs, I hope they give him some heels. The way he looks now seems like there is no support from falling back.

    Kinda wished beachcomber had a heel on him... feet look funny at a side angle with only the borders of the legs really holding him up...

    Cogz looks amazing and I'm anxious to get him. Beachcomber looks OK, but I think I may actually like Hasbro's better. Either way he's not a character design I like enough to spend more money on.

    Gears looks ok, but the head looks a bit weird. I HATE the look of Beachcomber, which is a shame because it's probably my favorite minibot not named Bumblebee. I was going to pass on Outback beforehand and the prototype pics do nothing to change my mind.

    That sums up my feelings for these as well.

    I'm all in for the upscale in size. I think they look pretty good next to the newer MP molds.

    Totally in agreement on Beachcomber though. He definitely needs some sort of foot and heel to balance. If there's one thing I don;t like, it's a TF that can't stand.

    I was really hoping they would have branched out and hit up all of the mini-bots, including Powerdive.

    It would be really nice too if they redid Huffer and Seaspray in the larger scale.

    They look good. Cogz is the shiznit. I hope they fix the QC issues Hench had for outback and he'll be nice too.

    Beachcomber needs something done with the legs... specifically the feet. Less angle/slope at the foot and more of a defined dashboard/foot recess might make it look better.

    Overall very happy with the size of these. Yes they look like Legends up-scaled without the detail. But that's what we asked for from the beginning. And I'm not complaining.

    I just want Rager and Spray to be the same size as well so they fit in with classics Bee and Cliffjumper.

    Any extra detail they can add would just be a plus!

    Cogz is adorable! I love it! Outback being a redeco of Hench isn't too surprising. Beachcomber is looking awesome! I need these guys in my collection, no question.

    outback needs a new chestpiece,brawn's is too iconic, that was the main part that separated him from brawn, cogs looks great though, might have to get him, the others, i have already in some form or another on my classics shelf

    This--^ NOT Beachcomber is the only less than stellar example from this group thus far. But honestly that's not as big a dig as it might otherwise be because all other MW's have been awesome, so to have one less than shining star isn't too bad.

    Gears and Beachcomber will be bought. Pass on Outback since I already own Brawn. However, he does have a much nicer gun than the latter.

    The Gears mold looks cool but I might wait for the swerve retool instead.

    Beachcomber is an odd one, as he looks odd in alt. mode but comparing it to the G1 there really isn't anything wrong with it and nothing that I can see that should be changed, I think maybe the original toy is just really plain?!?
    A quick search of Beach Buggies on google shows many a buggy with smaller wheels at the front like a dragster, so that doesn't bother me.
    Robot mode looks great though, and I like the hippie gun with a flower in it.

    I'm in the same boat, i liked them small and relatively cheap, but after playing with Hench and UFO, i'm not sure they're worth the money at that scale. They do look pretty nice with classics BB and Cliffjumper though, but i'm definitely not rushing to purchase these.

    Gear's head looks fugly. They need to make the chest portion shorter to give more room for the head. And Beachcomber's legs aren't looking all that great. I'll be sure to buy them anyway because I need classics toys of them. Stay at the large scale please. There are already small toys of most of these.

    And I agree Outback needs a remolded chest. Hopefully these improve later.

    All good, except Outback, no chest remold, no buy!
    Hope they change it

    Doesn't look perfect. Gears head and Beachcoombers legs looks somewhat of. I'll be buying them though. Brawn and Cosmos are waiting for their buddies.
    Maybe the preorder on igears site will show up soon for these?

    Oh man, I want two of the three. Beachcomber would have made it all three, but those legs. There's so much space in there for feet or a better design to give the feet some articulation or separation in the ankle. The lack of this is a major turn off. Which is hard to do given how much I like Beachcomber as a character. As for the scale? I like this scale. The larger figures fit better in my classics line. I just wish where were images of them all in robot mode next to each other.
