    Considering what they are, they're actually pretty cool. I'll definitely be getting at least that Optimus Pirme for my nephew, if not some of the others too. Might even get one for myself, as they look like they'd be fun to fiddle with.

    Hmmm, the voyager analog (Prime, Firetruck, Helicopter?) look decent, but the Deluxe analogs (Bumblebee, Bulldozer) look pretty bad in those pix. I like the little dudes and there gear, and think my son'll LOVE them, but as a TF aficionado, I really wish those Deluxe-ish designs were quite a bit better (doesn't seem like you'd have had to put much work into them for big improvements)

    No Captain Fanzone, Sari, or Sumdac?

    Oh, wait...that's what should have been done 3 years ago.

    Cool for those with little ones, but I think mine are too old for these now. :(

    My kids are going to LOVE these! I know it sounds strange, but I am more giddy for these than anything else! Great idea, can't believe it took this long to produce.

    Other than the Starscream Skystriker, these are the only things to come out of Toy Fair that excite me. I could see my kids and I have lots of fun with these.

    I kind of want that firestation. Wonder how Animated deluxes would look on it.

    Looks a lot like imaginext. I'll be really tempted to pick more of these up than I should. Just like with stealth force.
    Definitely getting rescue bots Optimus Prime. Has more sharp angles than curves.

    Why are these based of TF:A instead of the movies, Prime, or even G1 for that matter?

    Mmm, Transformer gateway drugs. These are cute, like "Human Alliance Jr."!

    I dunno, they seem like a mix to me. Bumblebee looks Animated-esque, but Prime looks pretty G1. And that helicopter bot looks a lot like Movie Evac. They probably just go with whatever seems most cute and kid-friendly. I like the "pulling from multiple aesthetics" angle, though.

    I'll likely pick up a few of these for the young kids in my life.
