    just got em. comprise of evac, jetfire, scourge and leobreaker.

    evac-great modes all around. only complaint are arms, no articulation in bot mode.

    jetfire-probably the best of the 4, an all rounder, complete alt mode, articulated bot mode. but ive never been big on the character nor design so i find him on the meh side.

    scourge-also and all-rounder, with the exception of awkward looking forearm in bot mode.

    leobreaker-my only complaint is the funny front claws in alt mode, but most impressed with how the head is concealed.

    overall, the wave is probably better than the 1st on the merits of the toy design alone, but familiarity with the characters is at this point lacking. still, a good pickup - there are no clear cut half baked design like LOC wave 1's hot shot. hope this line continues strong. will be great to display em alongside CYB metroplex and primus :) 

    p.s. be careful when picking em off shelves. i found an evac packed without the rotor.

    Wow I am happy to hear this, I will have them hopefully within 10 days or so. (I pre ordered them at Transfiguretoys who is somehow still listing Crumplezone instead of Evac and Leobreaker as Powerup Lion.)

    As for Evac, I can just cross my fingures as I can't pick one myself.
    I really hope they will be sold at Woolworths here like Tiny Tins Spychangers. Kids will love them.

    Jetfire and Leobreaker are my favorites of this grouping.

    Leobreaker - simple, but nothing bad about it either. got the most useful articulation. Robot mode is best.

    Scourge - I like the big version, but this guy disappoints me in the way they simplified it. wierd forearms, no 'loincloth'. Dragon mode is best

    Jetfire: If you like the big toy, you'll probably like this, as it's very close to the large version overall. If not, you won't. I do, so I did. Some simplification and less articulation, but the only problem I have is the floppy extra hinges in the wings added to fit it in the package. I like. Both modes are equally good.

    Evac: this one kinda stinks in my mind. Too yellow, and it looks like you can leave the rotor on to transfrm it, but it's close to impossible. Robot mode has funked-up proportions, good leg articulation, but totally useless arm articulation. I don't have big Evac, but this doesn't appear to live up to it in any way. Copter mode is decent, and obviously the best mode.

    My ranking, from last to first: Evac, Scourge, Leobreaker, Jetfire (close to a tie on the first two)

    Ok, this is a little question, for those that have the THS Convoy, is Leobreaker in scale ot be refitted for use as a Liger Convoy arm?

    It's obviously not designed to do so, but it could kinda sorta in theory.
