Laserbeak is the best new addition to the Transformers action figures. Agree?

    Dunno about the rest of you but I think Laserbeak is the best one so far and it beats Ravage. So far no other stupid figure of Laserbeak with a gimmick like stealth or "Nitro"

    I agree Laserbeak is cool,but he ain't no where near as cool as the Wreckers,mainly cause LB has red wings in the figure but they were actually black in the movie.As for him and Ravage I would put them at about equal coolness.Later.

    I dunno. I think the Wreckers are bland and dull looking. The only Wrecker figure thats in stores recently is that Roadsomething and he reminds me of either Prowl or one of the old original Stunticons

    It's not an original opinion but I'm REALLY, REALLY liking Shockwave.

    From the DotM line? My vote goes to voyager Megatron, with voyager Shockwave coming in a close second.

    Why waste more money on the Human Alliance pack of Laserbeak with Soundwave?

    Just get the Mech Tech Laserbeak. Best looking figure ever

    I have a sneaking suspicion it might, just might, have something to do with Soundwave.

    I'm just waiting for HA Soundwave who will be coming with Laserbeak...he will be far more in scale. The Deluxe Laserbeak doesn't look terrible, but me personally won't get him. Also don't like the alt-mode. But thats just me mate. Glad you like the figure. :)

    Again I like Laserbeak but honestly he is probably #45 of Top 50 Fave TF's of all time,whereas Roadbuster and Topspin are way closer to top 10.Plus me being a Nascar fan that have been to 3 races in 2 years I am more partial to them than Laserbeak.But as they say "To Each His Own",its just about personal preference which figs we like.

    I think it's a dumb looking figure, personally

    I don't have him yet, but I plan on picking him up to go with the other 2 companion-type beast robots from the other films that I just finally picked up on clearance.

    Compared to Ravage and Scorponok, he seems way better just for having something resembling 2 modes, as opposed to Ravage's pod thing and Scorponok's...standing scorpion?

    I loved him in the movie, but from pictures and reviews, I think he looks a bit chunky.

    Honestly, I'd rather just have an accurate none transformable variation, hopefully a legend will come along or something to go with the deluxe Soundwave.

    I'm sorry he just looks too much like the vulture from looney tunes with an eye condition and I just can't take him seriously.

    EVER?!?! Cmon man....that thing is a turd, but to say that deluxe is "best looking ever"....that's simply Hogwash....if you were in a cave for 30 years and the first thing you seen was a laserbeak toy, I might understand...

    Ditto. When my mechtek would not work right for anything, I took mine back. I hardly ever take anything back unless its really screwed up, but the deluxe is so bad I had no regrets, and ill stay away from this mold until its on clearance for $1 for the mechteks, and ill toss the bird in the garbage

    If "Shockwave's Backpack" is the best you can do for an alt mode, then you aren't even close to "Best ________ Ever"

    Fill in the blank with whatever you want, Laserbeak doesn't qualify.

    laserbeak is an acquired taste, only a specific portion of fans love him. Others are indifferent about him. That by definition = not the best.

    To me Laserbeak looks horrendous as a movie toy. In the movie, he looked great, but his general appearance as a toy isn't very flattering. I think it's those eyes. Plus the wings are that horrible vibrant red. I personally think Megatron or the Wreckers are the best MechTech figures so far.
