I like them.
there for litttle kids that would end up in the toy bins
I'll bite when I see them. At first I was pissed that there was no bot mode for the drones, but after seeing the auto-gimmick thing I changed my mind. They're pretty nifty.
I like all the two-pack bots and the second pair of 5-packs. The first pair of 5-packs look lackluster and weird.
I really like'm so I plan on getting them for sure for myself.
I think it's an interesting concept and I like combiners, in general, so I'm optimistic. Reserving full judgment until I actually have the first wave of figures in hand.
I think they pretty fun.
No kidding. They're toys.
To put it nicely (from the reviews/pics/promos that we have seen), I think they are a huge step backwards, and not just the drone limbs, but the main figures as well. They are blocky as if they were throwbacks to the A/E/C era. If I had kids, these would be a maybe, but there are way more important ways for me to spend $20.
I'm excited for them
As said many a time already, very A/E/C-ish. Not necessarily a bad thing though....
There was at least one thread recently where someone said a 10 year old couldn't manage ROTF Sideswipe...10 isn't THAT young, and Sidewipe isn't that complicated either... perhaps it's a very pronounced example... Still, TFs have come on in leaps and bounds since A/E/C... but at times i do wonder if some of them are too complex for kids.
The line *needs* something not too complicated, not too pricey. Although Powercore combiners aren't really going to fill that gap exactly, since the end of Animated, the gap IS there, and does need to be filled.
They're so heavily dependent on the gimmick that I don't see there being much variety in the line before it's canned - but I don't think it's intended to last any longer than the months between now and TF: Prime, anyway.
They seem like they might be fun to play around with, but if I got into the line at all they'd have to be on sale. I will most likely pass on them all.
At this point I have no interest in getting any of them.
You do understand that they're all basic sized, right?
I personally can't wait for them. I can get over the fact that the drones don't have robot modes. The whole mix & match feature and the automorph gimmick make up for it.
I doubt I'll buy them. I'll probably focus on the Generations line, and maybe I'll pick up Huffer though.
I'm not really that excited abt them & as some others have alrdy said, design-wise it's an amalgamation of A/E/C plus bayformers mixed in together. I don't hate it per-se but just not too fond of it dat's all.
That said since I'm sucker for combiners, I may (or may not) get them. sometimes the pixs you see online doesn't do justice to the actual product.
I don't really care for them.
I'll concede that the Commander bots are neat in terms of having three modes (plus minicon armor) fit into such a small size class, but so far none of their designs interest me. I don't really go for automorph gimmicks either -- I want to do it! The limbs are what kill the whole concept for me; I can get over the fact that they lack robot modes, but not if they're going to turn into arbitrarily shaped claws and guns.
I'm pretty poor right now, but I might buy a couple of them on impulse. Not really a fan of the whole Power Rangers thing they've got going on though.
I'd rather they had invested their effort into more 'Generations/Classics 3.0' stuff (like Voyagers & Ultras) and more WST.
No sir, I don't like it.
These don't cut it for me as combiners due to the limbs and aesthetically I think they're crap.
