    Knockout in that first link looks so much better, but what's up with his headlight flaps always being mis-purportioned?

    Looking at the side by side Vehicons pic I have to admit, I won't be missing the FE version. I have no clue how they did it but the RID version is so much neater. The FE version is all back kibble.

    Knockout actually looks great out of package. Hot Shot's colors look good, and I'm totally going to do my best to get three of that Vehicon.

    Vehicon is pure win!

    My plan was to get three but now I want more, too bad he's shortpacked. Knockout looks good as well and Hotshot is ok, that mold definately looks better in blue with a different head.

    Though I don't think the mold is very good, Hot Shots colors and deco are pretty fantastic IMHO.

    I have a funny feeling Vehicon just went from hard to find to downright impossible. :(

    Dunno why, Knockout looks incredibly cheap despite having what looks like a cool transformation...

    Vehicon is the only one I have to have. Hot Shot is bought because I don't have the RID Bumblebee figure and this retool looks pretty great. Knockout though..........I don't know, I'll probably buy it since it's Knockout, but I honestly feel it could be a lot better looking.

    WTB a mod that lets Knockout's chest area angle inwards. Otherwise, I'm liking all three of em.

    Holy frak, that vehicon is AMAZING.

    I need at least 2, hopefully 3. Not more than that though, since I'm low on space already.

    I want all three. Hot Shot looks good and I love the head, need Knock Out because he's a main character (and a really awesome one at that), and must have Vehicon because that thing looks like it has Animated Prowl-levels of show accuracy and no kibbliness.

    Still think I'll wait to see if Takara/Repaints hold anything better for Knockout. but....

    I am LOVING that Hotshot. doesn't feel like a repaint/remold. I can truly see this as it's own character.

    And that Vehicon is AMAZING! I might buy 2 or 3 of him!

    Especially if you have the FE Bumblebee, then Hotshot really does stand out on his own.

    I'll be picking up all three, Hotshot and Knockout seem like they'll be easy grabs since there's two of each in a case, but the Vehicon....
    I'm going to have to step up my hunting game.

    Knockout is begging for some yellow and white paint apps....might have to snag two, one to fix and one as a back up.

    I can't get over how little vehicle kibble there is on Vehicon.

    Vehicon: I still like the FE better, but I might purchase one just incase.

    Knock-out: I'm just going to customize him.

    Hot Shot: I think I'll just leave the goggles on his face.

    That Hot Shots head mold is terrible. I wonder if anyone has any suggestions for a replacement head. I'd like to find a head mold like the Bumblebee in the comics.
