    Hulk is the only good one he looks like a transforming Starscraft/Unreal type tank. I can see lots of people bashing him into a Don Fig-style War Within Grimlock too.

    It does look good. For some reason the spider-man pic came out small. I'll attach a link for people to see a full size version.

    Agreed. Hulk looks quite nice, and lends itself to any number of kitbash projects. I admit I don't quite understand the love for Venom; his alt mode is great, but his robot mode just looks squat and jumbled to me.

    Iron Man would look good if his legs were longer and his articulation (particularly in the arms) were better. Even as is, I could see him providing a decent base for a Cyclonus kitbash.

    The figure I'm really looking forward to seeing more closely is Wolverine. He looked pretty great in those few fuzzy shots we saw.

    I think you would have to kitbash these things to make them nice, execpt for that 8 wheeled star wars thing, that thing looks pretty cool.

    Just to throw out a different idea for a change, I think that Iron Man would make for a pretty neat kitbash into g1 Misfire. Perhaps there is a minicon that is nicely suited to act as a targetmaster partner.

    I see alot of kitbash potental in all four of them. Even Spiderman would make for an interesting Femmebot. Maybe even a pre Beast Wars Black Arachnia.

    Paint it orange & Venom's vehicle mode is the M.A.S.K. Stinger all the way!

    He's supposed to look all crazy and bulky. If you look at regular venom, you'll see the connection.

    Iron Man is the only one that interests me, the rest look naff.

    The Hulk looks like the winner of the bunch. Mos' definitely a kitbash project. Anybody got alt mode pics?

    Hulk FTW, though I'm going to wait to see the repaint (hopefully at Botcon) before I decide on one or the other. The rest are all iffy now, but I'm leaning more away from Iron Man and more towards Venom at this point.

    Ah, that picture of Venom looks a bit better, though the angle isn't very good.

    So is anyone around here going to buy these and then not use them for kitbash fodder. :p

    I'll be getting Hulk...and keeping him normal.
    I'm not much for kitbashing myself >_>

    Though I'd like to see some of our guys here bash Wolverine into movie Warpath/C Brushguard/C Overhaul. And Hulk into Vehicon Primal, or something like that.

    Is Spiderman supposed to look like someone shoved a bicycle up his exhaust port?

    While the Hulk and the Iron Man look the best to me, I'm gonna hold on until they release Wolverine. (Though I'm tempted to get a Hulk to go with him.) I've been collecting X-Men for about as long as I have been a fan of TF's. (1986) Now they've combined the two things I like the most, while I have yet to decide if I truly like these new figures, I have to get any X-Men characters just for the novelty of it.
