    Marvel cross over suck. In my opinion. Plus, they make no sense. I know I don't have to buy them. But. Why would hulk make a huge robot of himself or Wolverine? At least the Starwars crossovers vechical are robots to begin with. Besides that, the robot modes don't look so hot either.Which is what most people display them. Venom has muscel tissue showing? The vechical modes are a different story. I do like Venom's muscel car mode and Ironman's jet. I see the marketing appeal. Marvel + Transformers= money! I guess that's what it comes down to. Do you agree or not? I don't blame them. What's next Transformers Bratz? Actually, that would be awsome! Come on Hasbro!

    For starters, Bratz got killed off by Mattel.

    Second, if you don't own one, I don't see how you can claim they suck. I've heard lots of good things about the line from people with first hand experience with the toys, and those opinions I can accept. You're making declarations based on just seeing them.

    As for not making sense... who cares? It's a toy, the point is to have fun with it, who cares how much sense it makes. You get a toy vehicle and a Marvel character in one purchase.

    Sadly, I do own one. Venom. I learned from by mistakes. This is just my opinion. Not a serious thing. Did you see the Bratz reference? Again, not something serious. Don't mean to offen you, Omegus Prime. And What? Bratz is dead?!? Noooooooo.

    i'll disagree. the sw x-overs were flimsy and awkward in robot mode
    vehicle modes were nice, but in the end they just weren't fun. falcon and death star aside.

    these are more solid and fun. plus they make much better kitbash fodder!

    You don't really list any good reasons for why they suck other than personal preference.

    I my self love them. So far I have the Hulk, Wolverine, and Ironman the only one I don't like is the Ironman one just because of his legs. I didn't get the Venom cause it didn't appeal me that much. They are so much better then the Star Wars figures IMO.

    Personally I find them pretty okay. I have a Spidey, planning to get a Capt.A in the future. Could be improved by adding in more locking tabs and stuff, since Spidey's back kibble is literally dangling off his ass. Other than that, he's good. Certainly not the worst figure I've seen so far *looks at Armada Sideways*

    They don't suck if you like them. I have red and black-suited Spidey, Hulk, Venom, and I put Wolverine on my Christmas list. I think they're interesting and kinda cool-looking and plan to get the others in the line eventually. Some of them will also be great kitbashing fodder, as others have mentioned.

    Now the first attempts at making transforming Marvel characters was indeed a disaster. Marvel Megamorphs sucked on so many levels, and what's worse is they actually produced comics for them.

    Be thankful Hasbro didn't go to that extent for either the Marvel or the Star Wars Crossovers lines.

    And I hope to everything that we'll see DC Transformers Crossovers in the next year. I'm already working on some of my own as kitbashing projects.

    You needn't worry. It'll get moved shortly, I'm sure.

    Personally,I thought Hasbro did this line way better than the Star Wars Crossovers.I find these guys pretty okay.Not the best line,but not the worst either.Besides,they manage to get my satisfaction of buying them instead of Universe Sliverbolt imo :D ...

    I have both the Venom and Iron Man ones, and I have to say that both are awesome, aside from Iron Man's leg problems. They are not the SWTFs, not by a longshot. IMO, you need to just go ahead and buy one that isn't Iron Man I can guarantee that you will be satisfied. You should try Wolverine, I hear that he's good.

    Have you ever met a superhero before?

    The only thing bigger than their muscles are their egos.

    I've got Hulk & Ironman. Much better quality than the Star Wars ones. Except for the heads, the ones I've seen could easily have been sold as just Transformers.

    Since this line isn't taking the spots of any Transformers, I don't mind it existing. If anything, it gives me more choices of transforming toys in stores.

    Someone made a Warpath custom out of the Hulk one. Painted it red & gave it a new head. Looked awesome.
