    I currently own the first 2 waves from the movie along with BB and SS from the 3rd wave. I also own the all the G1 ones minus the Unicron pack, hate that character. I was able to also score the Walmart exclusive awhile back with Skywarp and Cliffjumper. Thanks to Robot Heroes I now own all 3 seekers without having to kill someone, lol.

    I have none. I like the look of them, especially the movie ones, I guess I don't have that extra $10 with me when I come across them.

    All! :D  Love the little things. New wave still hasn't showed up around here yet, though, and I'm trying to avoid ordering off HTS cause I prefer to be able to pick through and find the best painted ones.

    My Beef with the movie ones was there simply isn't need in a franchise with 5000 characters to duplicate the same character in a slightly different pose.

    I would have rather seen Humans and non-movie characters in Robot Hero form rather than a 3rd optimus prime, a 4th bumblebee and Do-a-barrel-roll Ironhide (the worst RH ever made partnered with dispensor the best RH ever made)

    Like I totally realize they have like 16 Luke Skywalkers and they make multiples of a character, I get it. But come on:

    Regular old jazz = Great
    Brown Frenzy = Great
    Thumbs Up Ratchet = Great
    Blue-hand Megs = Great
    Cannon Arm Bee = Great
    Barricade = Great
    Cannon arm Prime = Great
    Booogity-Booogity-boo Blackout = great

    Ok, First wave was great stuff. Simple single characters

    Cutie pie Scorponon = Great
    Poke it with a stick Prime = Not so good, Second character
    Catch my breath Screamer = great
    Mask and Cube Bee = Pretty good for a main character, second repaint acceptable
    Skatin Bonecrusher = Great
    Big gun ironhide = Not a good figure but at least a single version of the character
    Protoform jazz (??) = Not a great figure but not terrible
    Beat your face in brawl = Badass

    Ok, So this wave needed to be made. 2 repeats and 2 sub-par figs.
    Battle Damage Jazz = Ok, For an exclusive, maybe. Didn't need to be made
    Mace smashing Megs = Not a very good figure didn't need to be made
    Tripped on a brick barricade = Again, What does this pose supposed to do? Didn't need to be made.
    Bring it Prime = Actually a great figure, Should have replaced poke it with a stick prime.
    Matrix bee = Not bad, it is ok.
    Blast off Starscream = Actually not bad either
    barrel Roll Ironhide = garbage
    Dispensor = Great

    So of wave 3, Only 2 figures were ACTUALLY GOOD.

    At least 6 of the figures could have been replaced with other things like Humans or non-movie characters. The 2nd and 3rd poses were simply uneccessary. Most of us only need and want a single figure per character.

    Which is why G1 and BW robot heroes are so awesome. Those 6-8 uneeded movie figs should have been something else.

    I have all of the G1 Heroes, and the ones that came with the Best Buy movie set.

    I intend to get all of the G1 Heroes that continue to come out, and maybe Dispensor for kicks. I'm not likely to get many non-G1 Heroes, but I can't say that for certain.

    All of them released so far. :)  And I'll be getting all the upcoming ones, too. I'm even planning to get the Beast Wars ones, despite having never watched an episode of Beast Wars or bought a Beast Wars toy before. I'm just that addicted to Robot Heroes.

    They're like Battle Beasts dressed as Transformers, for goodness' sake!

    Not my thing, and I think I'll be selling off my Heroes of Cybertron soon as I'm no longer interested in most of those.

    Encore battle beasts... :drool: 

    28 per set at Robot Hero prices would be 84$

    I would pay 84$ for a boxed set of a series of Battle Beasts.

    Quite a bit, as well as the GI Joe Combat Heroes.

    I plan on using them as Christmas tree ornaments.

    I bought the first couple of waves of the G1 Robot Heroes, but rapidly got tired of them and sold off most of them. The only one I kept was Skywarp, since I like the character. I can't imagine buying any more in the future unless some must-have character is featured.
