    Well, my local toy store is carrying ROTF Robot Replicas for $15 a pop, Optimus, Ratchet, Ironhide, and Starscream. I'm wondering if any one of those is worth getting? Ratchet is looking pretty good, how's the joint system for poseability?

    I dunno.. they seem really bad. even the paint looks bad. Better off with RH's instead. That's what I did.

    Visually they look MUCH better than the RRs from the first movie, but I'm still passing on them. And $15 seems a tad much to me.

    I picked up a couple of the ones from the first movie for a quarter of the original price and I still felt ripped off. Personally I feel the actual transforming figures are a much better replica of the film characters.

    I got all of them except Prime and Bumblbee; they're nice but not as posable as the first film's Robot Replicas, to me. The molds are a bit of a step up and to me the paint jobs are quite fine (I don't know about the blue on Jetfire, but other than that they look good to me; Megatron's RR looks better than his Leader in terms of color). Jetfire's my favorite, even with the random metallic blue added on. It's also the most posable to me, and comes with his cane.

    $15 is a ripoff though. I got them at Walmart and Toys R Us for less than that.

    I only looked at a few in Target the other day(Who had them for $12, $15 is a rip.) and I have to say they actually look rather nice. The sculpting looks much better in person then you would think.

    I may pick one or two up at some point. Maybe wait till they go on sale, I donno. But for straight forward action figures, they look pretty decent.

    I saw all of these guys today, didn't even pay attention to the price. ($15? Their momma!)

    Nice sculpts, but I'd rather purchase the main liners instead. Jetfire and Sideswipe are a possible buy though, but only on sale.

    Bought a RR Ratchet, and I can say that I really liked it. $15 was a tad too much, but I would've bought it for $10.

    Looking forward to the other RRs.
