    Aw, dang it.... Cliffjumper is a new-style Bot Shot. I was planning to skip all the new-style ones. But there isn't an old-style version of Cliffjumper. Hmph.

    I don't know about these new molds. Those spin shots are rather uh stupid I have to admit. Probably fun to mess with, but display wise ugh. Not sure about flipshots either, there are flipshots in there right? I like shockwave, but those colors I just don't know.

    One of those bees might make a pretty good base for unicron though.

    Not really digging the new design either. Not sure why you'd mess with a winning formula.

    Probably just collect the normal mold super bots from here on out. No need for those other strange flip/spin designs. Don't play the game, so I don't really care.

    That one (jump shot? Flip shot?) Bumblebee mold looks better suited to Cliffjumper - so of course they paint a mold that looks more like Bumblebee red. :)

    Yeah... one of the Bumblebees definitely has a Cliffjumper head, while CJ himself has a Bumblebee-shaped head.

    Kinda boggles my mind.

    Initially I was happy to get a few BotShots for my son, but thankfully he's over them now.

    Thanks for the images.

    Don't like all the brown on Shockwave.

    Definitely passing on angry Bumblebees but I like super Skyquake. That green looks nice with the clear.

    Saw the Bumblebee and I thought "Hey, maybe the new Optimus's feet won't be as giant as I thought. They're really bad... kinda ruins him for me. He was the one I wanted most for being completely G1. I mean, did his feet have to be so large?

    Do Optimus's arms stay up? That might be another big point against him and his gimmick.

    Other than Sunstorm, BotShots has effectively killed BotShots for me. :thumbdown

    Bot Shots are $5 at Target now, and that bugs me a bit.
    I don't like these new ones too much they look cheaper than before. Like Happy Meal toy cheap... I'd probably get Cliffjumper, maybe new Shockwave, and Ironhide (sad the older mold didn't get LEAST ONE RED REPAINT).

    Anyone else feel like HasTak missed the boat on the launchers? I mean they could have done them up in the Battle Station modes of Metroplex, MetroTitan, Trypticon, Fort Max, Brave Max, Grand Max, Scorpinok, and Black Zarack. So sad.

    I love the new arms and legs on Jump Shots. They look way better than the originals. Problem is, they look too different. I have all the Bot Shots so far, and these new guys don't fit in. It seems too disconnected. And some of the faces seem a little crazy. And the Spin Shots are a "No." I don't know if I can get into them.

    I'm all over that Sunstorm & Skyquake...I just hope they show up at retail, the local TF sections are looking pretty scary around here lately.

    This line is already super fail if we don't get a Jumpshot Springer.

    Well shoot that convinced me on Shockwave at least. Still can't say the same for the other figures in the line though. The combination of those odd expressions and the gimmicks really kills it for me the more I think of it.

    I'm just going to write them off and stick with whatever regular releases they come out with in the future.
