    It's like the Star Wars Unleashed figures, if you've ever seen those.
    They're highly-detailed statues of characters in neat poses.

    Packaging reminds me of some of those bigger, detailed Gundam figures Bandai USA released a few years back.

    Bingo! They are more statue-like then action figure, but they usually have a few things you can change (like Vader's removable hand, Tyranus' force-lightning, etc.). I know I'm picking this up.

    Hm. I might get him funds permitting, but I'm going to focus on the mainline first and stuff like this secondary. I'll definitely get the Unleashed figures if I can afford them because the Star Wars ones are damned awesome. (No, don't own any, because I'm not that big into SW, but a friend does and they made me think multiple times about getting them.)

    I'm glad they're using this packaging. When Hasbro re-released their Grievous and Fett Unleashed a few months back they got away from the card packaging. This is much nicer.

    Here's hoping they do more of these. I'd love to see an Optimus Unleashed, or a Barricade to complement BB.

    Definitely getting these. I sure hope the Prime and Megs figures have connectible basses like a few of the Starwars ones had.

    Wow! That looks really cool. A little too cool for Bumblebee, alas.

    I'd like to see what the Optimus Prime Unleashed looks like. These have potential I guess.

    Sweet. I thought that looked like something that would belong in the Unleashed packaging.

    I have a Boba and Grievous... can't wait to get BUMBLEBEE!!!!

    I'm assuming the price point will be about the same... I think they are $20 when they hit. But when the last ones got clearanced some people were finding them for $4-$10.

    That looks terrible in package, like a mess of yellow confetti. Passing on this with no problem.

    I like the idea of this series. BB sure looks more intense these days.

    Transformers in the unleashed line? oooh. interesting. Especially if they go beyond the movie and use the other continuities to make them.
