    I'm thinking of buying Revoltech, Hot Rodimus, from TFSource, but before I do, are the Revoltech figures worth it? They look like they are, but I just want to make sure.

    Yes, they're quite cool. Very posable, I would recommend them.

    they're modern, beautifully articulated actionmasters.

    i love the super valk revoltech figures, and am looking forwards to the Alien, but i'm less taken with the TF ones for reasons i can't quite put my finger on. on the other hand i LOVED actionasters, so clearly i'm a fuckwit :D 

    i'd say yeah, why not. they're not that expensive or anything at the moment. be aware they're not very big though, if that's a factor for you.

    The standard Revoltech height is about 6".

    They are pretty neat. I have them all but Magnus. I especially like Starscream and Hot Rod since they came with stands so they can do ariel poses!

    Typically I lie my Transformers to Transform but I really do like the Revoltechs. Hot Rod and Starscream are my favorite of the four but Optimus and Megatron are great too.

    As long as you don't pay too much for them, they're definitely worth it. My OP/Megs fight for shelf space with Revy & Revy usually comes out on top - no idea why... :lol

    I have all the TF Revoltechs except Magunus. (I really don't like White Prime repaints) Even have a couple of non-TF RTs. Very cool figures. Starscream and Optimus are my favorites.

    Ersico, I hate you for owning the sole TF Revoltech left out of my reach, Convoy.

    That said, they're great. Buy them. They're worth owning. Great display pieces, equally great as toys. And there's currently only five of them excluding the Wonderfest model kits, so it's not the hardest thing in the world to nab them all (now to find myself a Convoy...)

    I have them all except for magnus and I rarely play with them. I guess because they don't transform...

    The only bad thing about the Transformer Revoltechs is that there aren't more of them (if they could do Ultra Magnus, where's Skywarp, Thundercracker & Black Convoy/Nemesis Prime?). They are awesome; the Megatron toy is still my favorite take on the G1 design.
