    I have to admit when I first saw the pics of these little guys, I wasn't too impressed. But, all of that changed when I saw them at retail for the first time last night.

    Now I want to get 'em all! I was thoroughly impressed with the metallic paint, clear plastic, and G1-esque designs on some of them. Also, does anyone know how liimited the chase figures are?

    Which ones are you most looking forward to?

    I like pretty much all of them but I'm especially looking forward to the superbots, jetfire, and lockdown.

    Wasn't going to buy them.

    Until I saw them.

    Wife convinced me to stop being cheap and that they were "adorable."

    Exact same situation here.

    I left Walmart last night and now I have Optimus Prime and the Chase Sentinel Prime.

    I need to go back and get the 3-packs too.

    I got Optimus with the launcher because it's a pretty sweet trailer, but beyond that I don't think I'm getting any more of them. Their propensity to spring open even as the result of a sidelong glance gets downright annoying rather quickly.

    Really want the Optimus Prime launcher.

    I think if I see clear Sentinel out there I'll pick him up.

    Miiiiiiiiiiiiiight get Thundercracker if I see him... I don't like the blue they used, but I like TC in general. Almost definitely getting Mirage and Jetfire... it'll depend on how much I like the Optimus.

    I was just going to get a couple to try them out but when I saw the complete first wave of single packs in a store I had to get them all. A buddy went again with me last weekend to check them out, and he ended up doing the same thing :lol 

    They are very cool and as long as their price point remains reasonable I'll continue getting them.

    In a way it's kinda like having robot heroes back but transformable.

    I like their hair trigger transformations.

    "Blow them a kiss and they sort of transform!"

    Here's a suggestion for the adult collectors. Use it as a Transformers Decision Maker. Get a Bot Shot. Put it on your desk at work. Blindly pick a symbol, substituting Fist for Yes, Sword for No, and Blaster for Maybe, and then transform and roll it.

    Starscream currently makes all my decisions. These things are VERY fun.

    The only Bot Shot I'm interested in is Barricade and maybe Nemesis Prime from that 3-pack. Otherwise, I'm not really excited about the Bot Shots line.

    Yep, loving these guys a lot. I forgot the name of the line but they remind me of the old little Japanese SD Tomy vehicles made back in the 90s.
    My favorite right now is Starscream who is also my first Bot Shot. I just need to get the Autobot three pack and Optimus Prime Launcher then I'm all done until wave 2. Looking forward to the future of this line!


    One per case for the single Bot Shots and the three packs.
