    It would be cool to take the best of both worlds and make a 2 pack set... (no lame mega-morphs) namely marvel legends and TF. It would also be a good idea to get Alternator-ish TF's and have them packaged with the figures from the New Avengers vs Transformers crossover! Sweetness would ensue!

    If they're anything like SW Transformers then pass. If they're anything like the Marvel Megawhatevers then pass. Hell, sounds like a huge pass anyways.

    Hope they look at least as good as SWTFs.

    Hasbro wasn't involved with the previous Marvel transforming toys.

    Really hope these are either what Robot Replicas should have been (detailed mix of at least somewhat inscale movie/G1 characters), or figures of various human figures. If failing that, then transforming Marvel characters that don't suck ass.

    They definetly sound interesting, though I'm going to wait to see some good photos of them, and read some reviews of them, before I decide to get any of them. I personally think, and hope, that they will end up great.

    Oh right, who made those ones? Sure they were big and blocky, but they looked like ass. Heres hoping Hasbro can do a better job.

    Cheers Drew, for some reason I thought Mattel did them.

    It would be really cool if these were TFs of some of the vehicles from the Marvel U like The Fantasti-Car, the SHIELD Helicarrier, or even the Spidey-mobile.

    Whatever they are, I'm sure they'll be better than MegaMorphs...

    This sounds like an epic fail waiting to happen, but who knows? One or two of the SWTFs turned out okay.
