    Anyone else diggin' the new RHs? The vehicles are just freaking awesome! I also just love how Long Haul looks all grumpy but curious. :3

    Anybody besides me big on the little guys?

    Edit: Obviously the obvious was not as obvious as obviously obvious. I didn't specify new movie ones, I just mentioned them. Feel free to discuss any RH goodness, I can't stop you.

    I like them, but I honestly don't like the alt-modes, well, except for SS's alt-mode version. I plan on getting the Springer vs. Starscream 2-pack. Would be awesome to see a Jetfire vs. the Fallen 2-pack, and it's probably something I would get. I also have a feeling I'll probably at least be interested in the inevitable larger RH version of Devs. It'll be interesting to see what he looks like compared to the individual CC's. Long Haul looks awesome, except for the odd forest green color on him, so I'll be waiting for his larger toy.

    Absolutely, I think we're seeing the line really evolve, which is great.

    I'm not overwhelmingly stoked about Prime's giant wheels, but going with a few vehicles here and there is a great idea. Here's hoping some other classic alt modes make an appearance... a boxset of G1 Dinos in dino mode would be the cat's pajamas.

    Oh, and a giant RH Fort Max, while you're at it, Hasbro. :thumb

    Love the robots but the vehicles don't look that great to me.

    I love the RH line. Great way to get many characters for a wee bit of money. Not sure about the vehicles though.

    Love it, will be picking up the rest of the line as it comes out. Don't really care for Humans or Vehicles (its called ROBOT Heroes, vehicles make sense, humans do not) but I'll get them for completeness.


    I just wish we could get some word on the last two waves of 25th Anniversary Robot Heroes, February's almost gone and STLL no preorders!

    Those things are flat out addicting, my collection of them has doubled lately. I'll be getting quite a few more in the coming months.

    Never cared for Robot Heroes.

    Really really don't like the look of the vehicle ones either, they look half melted.

    Seriously addicted to Robot Heroes... but the vehicles I'm not digging. It seemed with Devastator around, the movie figures were the perfect chance to finally make the larger ones like the Marvel line got. I am glad to see the sculpting improved and added articulation, but so far the movie ones seem to lean toward same old same old, Starscream's the only one I can tell has more joints and they only have one or two good poses in them. It's a step in the right direction, but I wouldn't call this an evolution, as it seems more like an excuse for shilling out the same characters.

    That Starscream is just the original in new colors, actually.

    I'm just glad that Marcelo Matere wound up liking the movie designs a bit more. The early waves, he tried to cutesy them up a little too much, which resulted in inaccurate faces like Blackout and Bonecrusher... but by the final wave, they really did have a beautiful amount of sculpted detail (such as the shrinking allspark Bumblebee, or two-fisted Optimus Prime).

    Robot Heroes just make our iconic heroes that much cooler.

    Seriously, they even make the movie designs look good.

    I like what we've seen, but Prime's big tires and "snow plow" are a little odd :inquisiti
