    More Predaking goodness... loving this wave. It's hilarious how they put Tigatron into the package to make him running upright instead of at an angle.

    I love the Laserbeak.

    I would rather see sets like the SW or Marvel Heroes and have the Gestaults be big and the component figures packed as smaller figures. Make the little Predicons as their animal forms.

    :lol  Laserbeak looks so funny with that expression, I might have to pick him up just for that, Tigatron & Inferno are pure win.

    The Optimus Prime vs. Megatron and Ricochet vs. Predaking sets will be mine. Both sets will make great additions to my collection. Here's hoping we get some more RID series stuff from the Universe line. One Robot Heroes set and an Ultra repaint are nice, but more would definitely be appreciated. The other sets don't look too bad, but I'm not a big enough fan of Beast Wars to get the Tigatron vs. Inferno set to get it, and something about the Prowl and Laserbeak figures just doesn't look right to me. Probably the goofy look on Prowl's face and the overall oddness of the Laserbeak figure.

    That is indeed a very fun little Inferno! BW Inferno was a great character, one of the most quirky and enjoyable henchman characters I can remember, and he deserves all the recognition he can get.

    Also, RiD Robot Heroes = awesomeness. I know I might be starting to sound like a broken record here, but...RH Sky-Byte? Please? :D  Scourge would be cool, too...

    Tigatron looks like he stepped in the Triceratops shit pile from Jurassic Park :lolol 

    All these look great. Laserbeak is my fav though, it looks hilarious :lol

    Eh, I'm probably starting to sound like a broken record too, but honestly, if it means Hasbro will somehow see that there are RID fans out there, and thus maybe give us some more nods as a result, I'd rather people get tired of me repeatedly saying pretty much the same thing, than not get more RID homages.

    Prowl looks a little too happy. Still a cool figure though.

    Laserbeak is pure awsum.

    Predaking is decent, but the Tantrum face looks a bit goofy. Is it my imagination, or are Tantrum and Razorclaw sticking out their tongues?

    I'm surprised how much I like the RID Robot Heroes.

    I do believe I will be buying them all....

    Inferno with the yellow teeth! Wow, did he take up cigar smoking after the Beast Wars?

    Inferno: cool - looks like he jumped out of a "Viewtiful Joe" game.

    Prowl: Damn, that's a happy boy!

    Laserbeak: BWAAAAAWK!

    Predaking: Nice!

    RID Megatron: Looks like he's an afficionado of 'Cybertron's Funniest Home Videos'

    Hmmm...

    On the bright side, Laserbeak looks better now that I can see the whole thing. Still not loving, but will own.

    On the downside, they seem like they're really skimping on the paints! Robot Heroes of the past look better on the whole.

    Predaking is a great sculpt, but the paint is so spare and incorrect! His body should be black beneath the yellow and orange. Maybe it's just the photo but the red looks purple and the grey parts look white. Hasbro! Just use the colors from the great looking titanium Predaking you released! It was even smaller! I don't hate the animal faces, but wtf with all the tongues? LB too? One of the reasons I liked Transformers RHs is they felt less preschool than the Star Wars & Marvel equivalents. These cutesy faces are a bit too much for me.

    Also, paint-wise -- what's up with Tigatron's stripes? Looks like he lost 50% of them. C'mon! Finish them or I will have to paint them myself... : (

    I hope hope hope that these images are rough prototypes and Hasbro adds more paint to be consistent with the rest of the RHs released previously.

    But now that I see the lack of attention they seem to be giving paint, I withdraw my previous comments about not needing large scale RHs for combiners. Make them all large! Devastator, Menasor, Superion, Bruticus, Defensor - Large scale! Metroplex and Omega! Do it for America, Hasbro!!!

    I was always hoping the Robot Heroes Inferno figure would look good, and they really pulled it off nicely! He looks maniacal, but still adorable!

    Beast Wars Inferno was always one my favourite TF characters - it's nice to see him finally getting some attention!

    Also, Lazerbeak looks hilarious. I love him.

    ....You just dreamed up the only thing that could have made Inferno any cooler.

    Laserbeak is AWESOME.
    ... except that we'll get a repaint as Buzzsaw in the future, diminishing the appeal of the crazy expression. oh well.

    I love Inferno too, but wish it had an open mouth expression, like when he's laughing his maniacal flying butt off.

    doesn't really matter, of course. I'm collecting all these little pocket monsters.
