    Very undecided. I like Shockwave, but I want a larger one. Everything currently seen by fans underwhelms me. For the sake of my collection and the fact that I don't really like the movie toy look as a whole, I'm only looking to get the best representations of big name characters. To me that's Prime, Megs, Fallen, Shockwave, Sentinal Prime, Starscream, and BB. And so far (besides the two DOTM specific characters) looks like I may be going back to get some ROTF toys at some point.

    Yeah, I think they're pretty good so far. Out of all of the figures I have (SP, Megatron, Ironhide, Crankcase, Roadbuster, Backfire, and Sandstorm), the only one I regretted was Ironhide, but I seem to be in the minority though I have warmed up to him to a degree.

    I can really only see it getting better from here.

    I'm more of a classics guy so I voted no. That being said, I do like shockwave and skyhammer. Those figures were very well done. Voyager OP is a complete turn off.

    I was just looking Skyhammer at TRU and he does look quite nice and I may very well get him. I am mostly not attracted to movie toys, bayformers especially. But movie toys of non movie characters can be appealing. Skyhammer at the very least has a very innovative transformation.

    You have to grab Skyhammer - it's a Siebass original.

    I was just re-reading the article and looking at the images. I think I am sold on grabbing him now.

    I've gotten a handful of figures from the DOTM line and so far I am pleased with them. The QC is alright for the most part minus a few things here and there. Time will tell with this line though. A decent Optimus Prime figure will seal the deal for me; we'll see when the Ultimate gets released.

    He's like %#$%&*ing ultra magnus, his alt mode and back story kick ass as well as his robot mode and transformation. He's the dos equis of the voyager class so far.


    Did not like the toys initially but they grew on me, to the point that I now like most of them. Cyberverse has great potential.

    DOTM toys are great, and they feel like a big experimental project for Hasbro.
    Not just from variety to cover all ages, but the MechTech stuff, is on a good track.
    It's not perfect yet, but soon the the Bumblebee toy for example will have an arm that turns into a cannon just like the movie.
    Maybe 5 years from now many TF's will have mech tech hands that turn into stuff.
    It won't seem like a gimmick anymore when Hasbro perfects it, but that's only if they take advantage of it's potential.

    Pegholes, mm clips and minicon ports everywhere now, daddy likes.

    Interesting..more "undecided" than I thought there would be.. I'm voting yes I like them.. but basing it on my Autobot purchases only, still don't buy many of the Cons as usual, no matter the line. The exception..Shockwave..gotta have him for my DOTM collection. :thumb

    I voted yes, but I have more of a "meh" feel. Don't get me wrong, I love what I've bought so far, but I'm quickly seeing a LOT of shelf warmer material out there. Seems like we're getting even MORE Optimus and more Bumblebee then the last two theatrical outings. Bumblebee is in every deluxe wave so far with more of him than any other figure. Same with Prime, two Primes in voyager waves one and two. Not to mention Optimus getting entire exclusive deluxe wave all to himself at Walmart.

    The size of the figures is something that has surprised me too. Voyagers and deluxes are noticeably smaller. Some are saying it's because Hasbro allocated more plastic to the mech tech weapons but I don't buy that. If you smashed the mech tech weapon into the figure it would still, to me, look and feel smaller. I deinitley think it's more of a cost issue then anything. If the Cyberverse line sells well, I can easily see our favorite robots get smaller over the next few lines. Further proof of that is.evident in the Marvel and Star Wars lines too.

    The HA scouts and Cyberverse playsets have been homeruns so far to me. I'm looking forward to picking up the Ark and stocking it full of Mini-cons. I eagerly await a Cyberverse Action Playset of Erector. Seriously. How could this NOT happen???
