    Must buy if you have the funds and don't already have the Sun/Moon. If you really only want not Laserbeak, see if you can get someone to go halfsies with you.

    Guess I'm in the minority, but for me it's an easy pass. I think they look terrible. Even if you forgive their simplistic-looking, weirdly jointed wings as somehow "Cybertronian," they are just badly proportioned and not very dynamic-looking. The G1 cassette-birds are almost 30 years old and yet are still superior.

    PE has done some brilliant little humanoid figures, I really like their little Rumble, Rewind, and Reflector molds (along with their repaints) but their animal-bots don't do it for me.

    Tempting, since I think they look kind of neat in beast mode. However, the alternate mode doesn't look very interesting (whatever it's supposed to be) and $30 each is more than I'd be willing to spend for them. Pass.

    I love PE's stuff and I've got these pre-ordered. Though I have to agree a little bit with Mocha, the bird modes really aren't that great.

    Easy pass for me. I think they could have done a better job. Especially after seeing their Reflector.

    look cool, but too prices for my taste. since its a 5 mm peg, they could be used as a mechtech weapon for DotM Soundwave whenever he gets released. A rocket pack in vehicle mode could look really cool.

    It actually started as a buy for me... Then after I thought about it I realized I didn't care that much.
