    In robot mode it's hard to tell Ironhide's even a simplified figure... his main toy should be great if this is any indication.

    They look alright. I hate the big missiles and launchers.

    I really doubt they auto-transform.

    There's strings/lines behind Prime's vehicle mode... I wonder what that's for....

    Ironhide rules!

    Makes me wonder how much BETTER his mainline version will be.

    I think both look great, the whole "Fast Action Battler" tagline intruiges me though. Some sort of crazy fast auto transformation? Press a button and SNAP into robot mode!

    Definitely not auto-transform but I wouldn't put their transformations any higher than 5 steps. We basically get a collector's line and a kid's line which I'm cool with. If these guys are smaller than the deluxes I may pick them up.

    Is it just me or does Prime kind of have a G1 Ultra Magnus look to him?

    Edit: Basically as long as there are cool versions, I'm fine with these beingo ut there too.

    Prime's a little meh, but Ironhide looks pretty good, I like.

    They look better in these pics than in the auction pics. Ironhide looks like a pissed off mofo ready to kill. His face resembles a ragin' bull. I can't wait to see either a CGI render or mainline test shot of him.

    That's the vibe I'm getting as well, if what I think are the eyes really are. Looks good.

    If they have some kinda springloaded transformation, I might go for the Fast Action guys. Without that I don't really think I'd have a place for them here.

    OP is not bad for a simpified toy. Ironhide is... ugly. Hope the large version will be better, but his head... Ironhide of old was recognisable from his round head. This looks like a bug/Ravage wearing BM Megatron's helmet.

    I hope the larger version will make a good Clench repaint.

    Spring-loaded or not, there IS a transformation gimmick...

    Prime's ugly. Looks more like Grimlock to me with that face flate modification and what the heck is that eye pupil? Are you telling me these Transformers have eye pupil like humans do? How come? the figure is good but with those eye pupils it does make them look like gobots or gen grevious. Damn those designers there are not fan at all!

    Ah man, now I really can't wait to receive those 2. It looks like they're even decently poseable! I see heads that can turn, elbows and knees!!!
