    Will be getting Sentinel Prime for sure!

    Topspin will probably be bought on sale.

    I'll have to see more on Sideswipe before I make my final choice.

    Nice shots though! :cool:

    Jeez, the more I look at Topspin, the more I think: "I just may actually buy this."

    Pictures make Topspin and SP look great.


    And make Sideswipe look like something form a dollar store.


    (note i said "look like")

    Translating some parts of the reviews you guys may find interesting:

    Sideswipe:
    1. The alt mode is pretty nice, aside from the main color.
    2. Its worthy of praise that all the "holes" for mechtech, etc, are covered in alt mode.
    3. The transformation is described as "fast, beautiful, cool"
    4. The feet are improved upon (I suppose to stand better)
    5. This sideswipe's legs, unlike previous SS molds, can stand straight instead of knee back.
    6. The sacrifice of complexity in the mold traded off into great articulation.
    7. The articulation and balance for the lower body is superb
    8. The mechtech is.... alright.


    More to come for topspin and sentinel comments.

    QFT. I think he sold me on Sideswipe, who is the only one of these three that I wasn't planning on getting. I will hold off and get the Takara one, though, as this one looks like an unpainted prototype with that light grey plastic (I wish Hasbro had at least gone with dark grey plastic, like they used for Movie 1 deluxe Jazz).

    Translation of his review:

    Topspin:

    1. Out of the 3 I received today (topspin, ss, Sentinel), I love topspin most.
    2. All the guns can be removed from alt mode.
    3. Transformation is of medium difficulty, but the process is very smooth, the backpack is a bit confusing to transform.
    4. The main attraction is the bot mode for this mold. VERY cool.
    5. First I didn't like him not having hands, but he indeed does have fists at closer look.

    translation of the review for

    Sentinel Prime:

    1. Overall, author has high expectation for SP. He is pretty satisfied with a few minor complaints.
    2. The alt mode is really neat and detailed.
    3. He feels it has a bit of a fire convoy (RID) and Galaxy Convoy (I believe, Cybertron OP) feel.
    4. The transformation is REALLY WELL DONE. Worthy of a leader class. Not annoying like MP09.
    5. There are 2 weak spots so still be careful on transformation.
    6. The bot mode has an awesome presence.
    7. The backpack is folded extremely well. Many earlier photos did not transform him correctly.
    8. The articulation is pretty standard.
    9. In summary, the silloette is great. Good proportions. The author loves that the wings can be adjusted. Light and sound gimmick, articulation "up to standard" (average), the transformation is very fun, and not frustrating. The minor flaws being that the head and the chest is slightly big, the head's articulation is close to zero. The sword isn't large enough.

    Sideswipe is a great looking mold, but he really needs that extra silver for him to truly shine.

    Topspin is awesome and a must buy. Same for Sentinel, who looks simply EPIC in these pics. :rock

    Sentinel is an obvious want, and Topspin looks better with each new picture we get. If it weren't for that hideous headsculpt, he'd be up there on my list.

    I'd buy a repaint of that Sideswipe, but with no paint that thing just looks crap.
