    Prime has got to be the weakest figure of the lot..decent robot mode, but the alt mode is rather pathetic...the arms dont click back into the body properly, and the head shows on top of the cab, which is kinda lame..

    Megatron is pretty cool in both modes...bot mode is pretty badass and the tank mode is quite cool too

    Dragstrip is awesome, he's the whole reason i wanted these SE's to begin with.. he's a really good repaint of classics mirage.. very nice figure

    Overkill is better than i thought, quite a decent looking repaint of classics grimlock.. looks good in both modes too..

    all but prime are pretty awesome

    It doesn't help a lot, but you should be able to turn the head around before folding it back. (on Optimus, that is)

    I'm gaining a weird fascination with Overkill. I'm thinking the toy may work better as Overkill than it did as Grimlock. Looking forward to Drag strip too.

    I got my Drag Strip and Overkill today. Nice figures, although as Deluxes I'm not 100% sure they're worth more than a typical Deluxe.

    Anyway here's 2 quick pics showing them and the previous versions of the molds;

    Nice pics. I don't think these are better figures, especially at $16 each, but I preordered a 4-pack from HTS when they had a 20% off coupon.

    Yea, the packaging should get a special mention.

    I don't think any pictures have been shown of this as it would probably be hard to capture, but the card tray the plastic sits in also has the box artwork on it.

    Just got mine today -- packaging is exquisite! Question on the horrible prime mold ... is there a way to stop his torso from spinning so freely? Just standing him up his torso rotates ... not sure if I have a bum figure or if its supposed to rotate that freely since he has that lame punching gimmick ....

    Those new TFs are good but their SRP is equivalent to 1 voyager TF toy. As for me Dragstrip and Megatron looks tempting .

    The tab on the back that activates his punching mechanic? I tried to pull that out further than it is, but it seems to come at it's max length (ie. you can press it in but not pull it out any further), and his torso might as well be a merry-go-round straight out of the box.
