Dirge looks kinda cool. Nice to have a new mold. Might pick up Armorhide since I didn't get him the first time around. Mudflap is still Mudflap.
nice to see that the landmine mold didn't get kicked aside. He's really a great figure. I dunno about Dirge. It doesn't even look like he can use those huge cannons when he's in robot mode.
Dirge == want.
Ill be picking up dirge, and armorhide
I'll leave Tuner Mudflap & Armorhide off my wish list. Dirge however is simply delicious. A definite must have in my list.
They're really pushing the character rivalries this time around.
Woohoo! Coneheads FTW! That Dirge is rockin'
I'll be picking up Dirge...I love that design. I'll pass on Mudflap and Armorhide, though.
This new ROTF subline is off to a great start! Definitely getting Armorhide and Dirge. I hope we see that Dirge mold used for plenty of other conehead Seekers.
Pass on Mudflap.
They've already released Ramjet and Thrust so I don't think they'll use that mold for other seekers. Unless they make new ones?
I'm definitely picking up Dirge. They haven't announced an official release date have they?
i like the armorhide mold; so i will surely buy a new one. along with dirge; mudflap is BARELY even different. though
I want 'em all! Wait a sec, I still don't have Thrust and Gears while a new wave is rolling in? WTF!
Notice the trend in Dirge's bio? Another hepless, scared-to-death Decepticon, running for his life against the face-ripping, spine-pulling merciless Autobots.
I miss Animated where even one Decepticon could almost beat 5 Autobots.
That said, Dirge is a must-have. Not for Classics Dirge- already have the Henkei one - but I think I'm gonna repaint him to this guy:
Though, he has the most stupid mech-alive gimmick I have ever seen. Spinning boobs? This almost beats Cybertron BW Megatron's Cyber-key hole.
Hasbro is really trying to save different colored plastic, though - that Mudflap is the SAME, just with different stickers. Same goes pretty much for all the BB repaints lately. It'd be cheaper to get a deco from Reprolabels.
In my book, Dirge is the best of the upcoming set of releases, so its a foregone conclusion that I will be getting him.
Tuner Mudflap does seem enticing, but ultimately I'll pass. Armorhide, oh well, not a fan of black stuff, so probably pass too.
I don't know why but I kept thinking Dirge was a voyager. Now I'm disappointed to see it's another crappy tiny deluxe jet.
*sigh* Almost everything Hasbro has done this year has turned me against Transformers.
Is Armorhide the same guy as the Movie 1 Armorhide? It kinda sounds vaguely like him even though the vehicle mode is completely different.
I wish some figures, especially planes and fighter jets, would be more in-scale, but there's only so much room for higher priced Voyagers and Leaders, and I'm pretty sure they don't want to waste it on minor characters that are bound to sell less within that price range.
Dirge looks awesome to me, so I will get him, even if he is 'just' a deluxe.
I'm not really a huge fan of repaints of a same character figure, i.e.."Tuner Mudflap", kinda like with stealth Bumblebee and whatnot. Now Thrust on the other hand...that was ok, because it was a new head and character. So, I am gonna pass on Mudflap. Dirge I will probably get, something about him just doesn't bode well with me at the moment. Armorhide is a for sure, I never got a Landmine figure, and kinda regret it now.
Dirge is a must-buy, the other two I won't pick up. I'm waiting on the Human Alliance figure for Mudflap and I'm happy wnough with the original Landmine I have without a repaint.
