    Thor looks like a prototype. Carnage, Captain America and Human Torch look fantastic!

    Thor's colors are weird in warthog mode, yeah... but there's some awesome engineering going on to incorporate his cape. As a big Carnage fan, though, it offends me that his head wasn't resculpted, the tongue and individual teeth just aren't the Carnage I know.

    Cap looks great, too, but again the colors in vehicle mode are a bit odd... we need a US Agent repaint to fix that.

    I am so getting that Carnage (despite having Venom), and I hate repaints, but I've always liked Carnage much much more than Venom so >_>

    And the others looks pretty solid as well.

    Thor and Captain America look killer. By the looks of them I can honestly say they are my favourite to come out of this line to date, along with Hulk. Can't wait till I start seeing these guys hit the shelves.

    Thor = Vehicle mode with ugly color, but nice robot mode

    Carnage = It doesn't work, Carnage doesn't have that bulk...

    War Machine or whatever it is = Nice repaint and looks shiny, too bad no new weapons

    Captain America = Both mode looks nice, and has a Optimus like head

    ...oh come on, Captain AMERICA is a HUMMER.

    I am not buying that on principle.

    Cap looks sick. Thor also looks good, despite the weird alt-mode colours. Wolvie and the Human Torch also kick ass. But we need more villains for Pete's sake! It's seven on one here (ten on two if you count the repaints - not that it makes the odds any better)! Ah well.

    Leader-1? Is that you?

    Nope, wait, my mistake.... maybe it's your buddy Sky Eye.

    Not really a comic guy, so most of these Marvel figs I'll be passing on... but I'm definitely picking up Wolverine, Thor, and maybe even Captain Hummerica. Those three look pretty great.

    You do know Hummers are military vehicles, right?

    Technically he's a Humvee, not a Hummer, which is one of the more common military vehicles used (it might not be a huge difference, but there is a difference). I honestly don't see the problem with the Cap turning into one. The colors are slightly odd in alt-mode, but it does appear that he's still unfinished (same thing goes for Thor). Here are my opinions on the new figures:

    Carnage- Not bad of a repaint. I wasn't expecting him to get his own mold. I don't plan to get him.

    War Machine- Not bad of a repaint either. I like the addition of the red. Probably won't get him either, though.

    Thor- He turns into my favorite military aircraft, the A-10 Thunderbolt II. I'm going to get this mold for one reason or the other.

    Captain America- Really good looking mold, with pretty good looking colors. I don't see a reason not to get him.

    Cool, digging most of these. not really big on Carnage, like someone else said, Carnage is thin, not beefy, really not sure how you would even capture him in an alt-mode. Everything else looks pretty cool. Especially excited for Cap and Wolverine.

    Helicopter. He could be made pretty thin that way and then you could use the blades as his tendrils.

    Still find the heads a bit odd on top of the robot bodies, but darn the bodies look really good in robot mode and the extra little steps to capture the hero's look in robot mode are great.

    Might have to do a wee bit of fan fiction to make them actual Transformers instead of mechs and pick up a few of them when they come out.

    The blue bits on the Warthog though still have wanting a GI Joe/Transformers line since the blue part on the front of the jet is so much like the Cobra Rattler.

    Captain America would make a perfect Ironhide!

    So far only the guys who can fly regularly have flying alt modes.

    I think a Thor with some repainting and modding will be a better Pwoerglide than that roided-out Universe version
