    I have Chromia. She is fantastic. So much better than I was expecting. I love the different ways the stand can be used and she has a fun transformation.

    Got both and love them both. Wheelie is REALLY unique, and I wish we'd gotten a cool Frenzy like him for the first movie.

    Both are great. I wish chromia was a little smaller though, only because I like to try and keep everyone in scale (wheelie is, of course, so out-of-scale with everyone else that he's in his own little set with the "mini-bots") :)

    Definitely happy with both. Especially Wheelie. He's pretty solid, and he can stand up just fine. His transformation is pretty complicated for his size. Lots of folding in here and there. Really fun.

    I have the same chest issue with Chromia. It only comes apart when I move her big arm though, it seems stable at all other times. Great figure though, very feminine without giving her boobs and high heels (looking at YOU TFTM Arcee!!!!).

    And Wheelie is a demonic Wall-E, it is awesome!

    I got to play with both at Botcon and they are both very cool. Even discovered an alt mode I named "road rage wheelie"

    I'd say if you like unconventional transformers, then you might like Chromia. That said, don't really expect too much from the figure on it's own either.
    Something to point out is that she's a combiner piece for two other figures,(Yet to come out.) so that may be a good reason to pick her up as well.

    Wheelie is an awesome little bot. Definitely worth the money. imo
    The transformation can be a little tricky the first few times, until you basically hit that "Ah Ha" moment. Then it's fairly easy.

    which store chain is selling Chromia and Arcee? Greensboro Target (Jefferson) and Walmart (battleground) have the standards- O.P., BBB, Sideways and sideswipe (which to kids apparently look the same...cuz kids don't read) The deluxe Jet (can't remember name, he's brownish tan with green markings on his wings) Rampage, and Scrapper. Then the leader classes and scout classes have what appears to be everything. Got Autobot Springer and Megatron in Scout class and Starscream Robot Replicas. Depth Charge and Dirt Boss (god they put him in the movie chain???...uggg) been sighted at Target and beware of Walmarts- little children attack... (goes to get ice pack)

    For me, I've only been able to find Chromia(As well as other wave 2 deluxes.) at Target. Not sure what that means really. Maybe nothing, other then Walmart will have a big shipment of wave 2 later.

    Arcee isn't out yet. I don't know when she's going to be out in stores, but I believe she's in wave 4.

    Chromia will always be a 50/50 figure. People are gonna love her or hate her. Personally I love her, and I can't explain it. She was my most dreaded purchase, and yet she was one of the figures I messed with the most when I first scored the movie toys.

    She's got a pretty badass look to her...and I'm sure she's gonna be a must buy when her "sisters" are released.

    Wheelie to me is like having your own "almost-to-scale" Transformer. He could almost be one of those tiny RC trucks in real life, and he has a lot of personality to his design.

    I don't think either is a "must own" for the line...but if you have the money, they are worth owning.
