    so far i am unimpressed the only one i have seen where it doesnt look like space barnicles stacked on alt modes is the voyager megatron we have seen.

    I guess the core idea is okay but the execution just leaves so much to be desired.

    Only Megatron's weapons actually look good.

    Megatron's and Ironhide's. Spinning barrel is pretty cool.

    So far, Voyager Megatron because it doesn't look like some huge chunk of weaponry added to the alt mode.

    ya megatron's weapon looks decent, especially as it actually integrates with the alt mode. any other figs I get Ill probably toss the weapon to the side.

    we haven't seen enough to really judge them just yet though imo

    I really like the look of the Optimus one, specially with the solar panel all over it.

    The Dread gun is pretty cool too, what with it having some kind of claw as bayonet.

    All in all, I really like Mech Tech because it guarantees weaponry for all robots, I hate it when robots come with no true weapons (ROTF line had alot of that shit, Skids, Sideways, Icecream truck, Voyager The Fallen, Mixmaster (butt missile is too retarded to count) the list of robots without any playability other than funny poses just goes on and on, and the fact that movie robots usually got hands that cant hold other weapons doesn't help.

    Outside of Megs, Ironhide, and the Dread I hate 'em. Only other bots I think it can really work for would be the Wreckers.

    I haven't really been paying attention to the Mech Tech Accessories all that much, although I haven't seen anything that doesn't look that bad or can't be fixed with a little custom work (even that...thing that comes with one of the Bumblebees. I'm SURE I could work it into something cool if need be). When I buy toys, I care about the base figure. The best accessories in the world can not save a hideously bad toy.

    My opinion is that all these DOTM transformers must have tiny wieners.

    Who'd have thunk that detachable weapons would be the worst gimmick ever that completely reduces all the figures in the line to utter shite?

    I'll just sit back and watch it die down this may. And laugh at you all.

    Only Megatron's is half-way decent.

    The Ironhide's kinda sucks.

    The rest are shit.

    They are a big turnoff to me. From what I've seen, I probably won't be getting any TF3 figures this time.

    What we have seen so far i do not like. They are just big and unwieldily. Megatrons works but this gimmick has yet to wow me based on images seen thus far.

    Honestly, I really like this gimmick. The weapons are nice, inventive, and add a good measure of play value to the figures. They also don't take anything away from the figures themselves. Especially Ironhide, who is a huge improvement compared to his previous Voyager class incarnations. I'm looking forward to seeing what they've got in-store for the rest of the line.

    As for my favorites of the Mechtech weapons, so far, I would have to say that Skids' is probably my favorite, though really, there aren't any I don't like to some degree. I'm looking forward to seeing what Jolt's does.
