    Where's Frenzy? Rumble's there, but Frenzy is absent.

    BLASTER!!! YEAH!

    Ironhide has a street light?! SWEET!

    Laserbeak on Soundwave's arm. THAT is too cool.

    Wow, that Laserbeak is damn creepy... like a vulture picking at a severed arm...

    I must have it

    LOL! I just noticed we have Rumble in blue for this line, but we just got red and back for the Alternator... and apparently we get to take the Decepticon off the name now. Still, this is going to drive the Rumble/Frenzy people nuts, I cant wait.

    While I don't collect these, their inventiveness is excellent


    Ironhide smack you with a Traffic light? awesome!

    Damn it, you're right. I didn't read the name on the base. I fall into the Frenzy is blue side of the argument, and since they got the Alternator right I assumed they'd do the same here. Whoops, my bad.

    Ho. Lee. Crap.

    Sideswipe, jet mode Skywarp, Blaster with toyish (rather than cartoonish) face, War Within Jetfire, Ironhide laying the smack down with a stoplight, Grapple -- GRAPPLE f'r Primus's sake -- waiting to deck someone with his crane, and PILE-DRIVER-USIN' (blue) RUMBLE?!

    Damn this line for being blind-packed.

    The movie figures -- especially Megs -- look pretty smokin', too.

    Awesome ideas, great variety.
    Damn shame the proportions are so off and goofy.

    And for being blind boxed, I just can't take the chance with the budget being so tight this season.

    my mind is blown that the first really good looking Movie Megs toy is an attacktix

    So are these Series THREE, then? We haven't even seen Series 2 out in stores yet...

    Anyways, some very nice choices-- a good mix of the obvious with some complete surprises. SHOCKWAVE, EEE!!! I'm surprised they aren't doing more of the movie TF attacktix, though I can already tell that that big double-blastin' Megatron is going to be pretty darned powerful.

    I think putting Laserbeak on a disembodied Soundwave's arm is kinda lame, though. So the arm just hovers around with him, or what? Kinda weird...

    Man, those look nice. Ironic that a mixed Star Wars / TF line like this should be so heavily biased toward the TF releases, and at a Star Wars event too. It's a pity Hasbro can't issue "collection packs" of these, gift sets with one of each character, perhaps online only or something for people who just want them for display.

    I think it's supposed to represent him perched on Soundwave's arm. There's a string there so lazerbeak can fly.

    Rumble looks pretty good. I wonder if he'd display well with the Classics.

    these actually look decent. Too bad the initial ones just gathered dust.

    Just for reference, the Movie figs will be "clear packed"...one of the Megatrons will come with the Scorponok, the other Megatron, Prime, Bumblebee and Bonecrusher will be packed similar to the Spider-Man 3 set.

    I think that verifies... Rumble is blue. :)  At least until we don't get a Frenzy repaint...

    The movie bots are ugly, the G1 stuff is better then the previous attacktix, I think.

    Heh, I just purchased 3 booster packs and the starter set the other day from Target for $1 each...so that already had me hooked again. Now I can't wait to get these G1 pieces, esp. Grapple!

    We haven't played in awhile, but when we first bought some Attacktix last summer, my wife actually enjoyed playing the game w/ me.

    On a unrelated note, a SW-TF AT-AT?! Yes...always did love that lumbering vehicle.
