    I've got at least one of all the molds. Skystalker is my favorite--I think he's a must get. I also like the Knockout/Reverb/Trenchmouth mold a lot.

    I've bought Ransack, Ejector, Deadlift, Trenchmouth, and Slap Dash, I genuinely like all of them.

    Ransack is a must-buy, as is Baron (the red version).

    Sounds like you have some of the best ones.

    Dune Runner is another of my favourites, but I recommend most of them. Hubcap is probably my most anticipated new mold for 2010. I can already tell that one's gonna be terrific.

    The only one I recommend against is Rollbar/Wideload. It's rubbish. I'm also not crazy about Depthcharge/Sonar. It's an okay mold but completely out of scale with everything.

    All of the rotf scouts, except scalpel, are worth getting. Skystalker and Divebomb/Ransack are at the top of the list, definitely.

    All of them.
    I own pretty much all the molds sans Skystalker. (Waiting for an inevitable repaint)
    Get them. And the HFtD Lines are comign out pretty soon... so ROTF will be pulled off the shelves and LIKELY put to clearance. Sooo... you may wanna wait.

    Reverb for sure. BW Inferno Homage, FTW. Or better still, Knockout, who is distictly Waspinator-ish.

    Scalpel's a bit awkward and definitely not a classic, but I'd get him anyway. He's in the movie, fairly high profile. It's a unique design, and full of character. With a bit of effort you can get him in a cool pose.

    I've got at least one of all the molds. Honestly the only ones I don't think are great are Scalpel and Ejector. All the other ones are a lot of fun. My favorites are definitely Skystalker and Brakedown.

    To really be honest, all of them of great. The scout line has been the best of the whole ROTF toyline.

    Skystalker is fantastic. Scalpel's a letdown. They're the only ones I have, but I've heard lots of good things about Divebomb and may get him as well.

    i have Dune Runner, 2 Ransacks, Scalpel (godawful) and 2 Reverbs.
    I am planning to get 2 Divebombs, SkyStalker and Beachcomber when i see him.

    I have my personal reasons for not getting more, but i will admit they are mostly pretty nice. keep Scalpel in alt mode and he might not break on you.

    Mine, and as others have reported, have had cracked leg ball joints. I'm just saving him the trouble. He is kinda cool, but after his leg broke from just sitting on the shelf, he lost his coolness factor for me. I wouldn't recommend him.

    Currently, my two favorite ROTF Scouts are Scattorshot and Skystalker. I heavily recommend them both.
