    Just got a Highbrow (from K-Mart! weird huh?) and I just realized that people have incredibly different opinions about the guy. From what other TF's have you seen such a wide range of opinion?

    I love the Highbrow btw, his arms don't really bother me as much as I thought they would.

    Animated Blackout

    I think its a turd. There are a few people that think along those lines. It gets a fair proportion of love though.

    HFTD Hailstorm.
    i see a lot of people saying that they pass him up at the stores, and i found him to be a pretty cool deluxe "movie"-figure...at least out of whats been out lately i.e. mostly repaints and smaller molds of old characters

    HFTD Seaspray.

    Not concerning his quality, but whether or not he can be considered classics Seaspray.

    Ironically, there is now a repaint of Hailstorm now...
    I thought HA Barricade was a little love/hate. Some people just couldn't get used to the arms...hmm there seems to be a pattern.

    Animated anything is a pretty touchy subject. There are arguments about Animated over in the Prime Forum right now, even. Plus the movie aesthetic seems to be a bit of a love it or hate it sort of thing.

    Pretty much on the spot here. There's a lot of vocal majorities and vocal minorities on a lot of stuff.

    Animated Safeguard.

    Get it? GET IT? Because he divides in two amirite?


    Ahem... please forgive me. In all seriousness though, I'd say the PCC figures get either extreme love or hate, more than any other recent line, I'd say. (even movie or animated)

    I couldn't have said it any better... :lol  "This new stuff sucks! It's too complicated/kiddish/cheaply-made etc. They should scrap all this new stuff & re-release the entire G1 line. Hasbro/TakTom are idiots..." :lol

    I'd give you my opinion on the G1 line but I'm not independently wealthy.

    all 3 female Rotf deluxe motorcycles toys. pure awful & looks like a twisted plastic distorted mess.

    HFTD Hailstorm,the design has nothing good going for it. a total piece of garbage.

    ROTF Breakaway,awful colors,ugly head sculpt. the thrust repaint with new head did wonders to make the mold look decent.

    ROTF voyager sized demolisher. toy design in bot mode looks like it belongs in the circus.
