    I love Optimus, Bumblebee is weird looking and Megatron looks off...

    Megatron looks strangely pleased with himself.

    When will they start throwing Jazz in the mix with these things? I mean I'm not a huge fan of these types of things but if that Mighty Mug Jazz was ever released I'd buy him as well as a Wobbler Jazz.

    Either way these look decent but limiting themselves to releasing the "TOP 3" keeps me away pretty far

    megatron's smirk is reminiscent of guitar guy's smirk from stan bush's 'the touch: sam's theme"

    Maybe I'm alone here.. But I thought the bobble head fad died out years on years ago.. Are they really still popular collectibles?

    The expressions do teeter on weird, but I digs em. I think maybe Bumblebee would look nicer with a flat-grey face.

    Neat. May get G1 Prime to be next to movie Prime.

    Optimus one makes me feel like: :hookday

    And poor Megs is all: :yuck

    I'll pass. I already have a Megatron Bobblehead, but even though mine is slightly more curved on the edges, I prefer his "dull suprise" expression to that new Megatron boblehead's. Prime and BB also do not interest me.

    I'm not digging the hands on Megs and Bumbles very much.... the fist on Ops seems more fitting.

    I'm not exactly sure when it happened, but they have become modestly popular again. If I had to guess, I'd say they started coming back when they started becoming popular giveaway promotions at sporting events.

    I don't know if there's a big collectors market for them in general though. That doesn't mean they don't hold value in other collectors realms (like sports memorabilia).

    Everytime they start a new line of figurines/collectables, it's always the same characters. Can we have some Prowls, Sideswipes, Hounds, Shrapnels, etc for a change please?

    If they continue, whats the betting BB gets a CJ repaint?!

    Wow.... looks like Bumblebee's been on the Nutra Slim diet. He lost a few pounds!
