    I mean okay if they're going for specifically '84 G1 Jazz I guess the 911's the way to go but mostly I would just like to have an official MP quality physical representation of my favorite '84 carbot. I don't care if the alt-mode's 100% perfect and officially licensed as long as I can look at it and think "damn scatman cruthers was a good choice but you're so smooth you probably sound like billy dee williams" and then dance around like in Blaster Blues.

    The Headmasters gimmick in Titans Return sucked. I ended up with so many floppy-necked Deluxe bots because the connection parts were too damn loose.

    I really don't want to touch the official figures anymore unless they have ball joints because I can easily tighten those up. Pin connections and ratchets on the official figures have been consistent disappointments.

    Yes, agreed, but not so good for my wallet and quite difficult to hide them all:p

    It's already been said a couple pages back, but the fact that Jazz doesnt have a MP yet should be considered a crime.

    I dont find ROTF Leader OP's transformation very difficult, was tricky at first but after the first couple of tries I never had a problem

    I also really like CW Sunstreaker, dodgy waist and everything

    I somewhat agree here. I'm excited to have an official Sunstreaker, but BadCube's was pretty good-looking. I also really liked that they matched the real-world look of MP-12, unlike Takara's version which looks more like the cartoon. I'm really hoping they give us an alternate version at some point, since buying a replacement Sideswipe to match makes far less sense.

    And meanwhile, I've never understood the love that HA Bee gets. I think he's too blocky, his arm panel seats look awful, his head looks dopey, and he's not screen accurate at all.

    Same here. It's really not as bad as people make it out to be. I find Leader Sentinel to be a far worse offender, personally.

    I only ever have trouble getting the chest pieces in and out of the Mech Alive slides. Though I don't find Sentinel Prime to be that much of a chore, personally, either.

    I think TR Triggerhappy is overrated. I mean it's nice, but I don't think it's that great.

    That part is scary, but I've learned the easiest way is to slide them back to the corner of the section they're in and actually tilt the chest pieces out ever so slightly towards the sides while pulling up. Never had a problem since.

    The transformation is indeed well engineered, but I think that the figure just isn't all that fun to play with. Maybe I just sometimes has the mentality of a 7 years old, but I just don't want to spend 5-10 minutes transforming a figure.

    Sunstreaker (And the Breakdown mold in general) is my least favorite among the CW Deluxe figures, but the figure also has a bunch of positives. The vehicle mode looks awesome and sleek, the headsculpt is good, and both the arm and leg mode isn't all that bad.

    The CW Sunstreaker/Breakdown would be decent if they made the legs transform like the other carbots, which don't have huge gaps in the legs that can be seen a mile away. Wished someone would have made some Shapeways filler pieces one could put in there to cover those gaps.

    I like painted rims, but unpainted rims don't bother me.

    Alright, I got one...I think the CW Onslaught mold is absolutely awful. Between the pin-joint arms that hold anything heavier than a feather and can't be tightened with nail polish, the puny little cannons, the alt mode that looks like nothing, the ugly grey plastic on the chest piece, down to the thin, almost chalky plastic used on the rest of him, it's just a god awful design. The torso mode...is okay, but damn did Has/Tak mess up on my favorite Combaticon. I would actually say he's my least favorite of the three base Combiner Wars torsos, I have no idea why they decided to use it the most.

    I skipped out on all the MP figures cause I don't like dropping near 100 dollars on individual characters. Classics to TR is better in my opinion. More figures and more distinct designs coupled with a cheaper price and smaller size.

    MP-09 Rodimus is a great Rodimus, even Hoodlum won't surpass him, maybe in quality build, but not in everything else.

    i actually like the beast wars 10th anniversary optimus primal and megatron figures. i like their deluxe size class, their techno organic take on their original modes, and i think the addition of their ships in mini form was cool.

    I prefer Hasbro to complete groups before starting on another. For example, I want to see Scorponok first so that I can complete the set of Fortress Maximus and Scorponok. Omega Supreme is a standalone so he can wait.
