    I have heard a lot of bad things about the FOC figures and people are over reacting about them so lets think of the positives and shed some light onto he figures

    The figures are fairly accuarate to the in-game models with not many major flaws and yes jazz has been said to be terrible when in fact he is a brilliant figure and is accuarate to the in-game model of jazz. Optimus is a great figure despite him not being as good as the WFC figure atleast FOC optimus doesnt have back junk. Shockwave's hollow legs are not as bad as peole make it out to be as you can put him in many posse's without revealing it.

    I love all of them. I also find it funny that most of the people who bitch about these toys rave about how good those blocks of plastic titled "G1 figures" are.

    For one thing they are very game accurate which is important. Secondly they looks to have good articulation and weapons that don't hinder the figures.

    Shockwave and Optimus look sorta kinda close to the game models, but I honestly can't see how Jazz looks anything like his game model in terms of proportions.

    The only complaint I have is the smaller size. I hope to get all of them except prime, since I have WFC. and having a different mold for magnus makes sense

    I really like everything. The Insecticons, Combaticons, and maybe Shockwave in my collection will become movie versions (I am a movie nut). Shockwave may get a head-swap or maybe will just be G1 Shockwave. I'm getting him either way because he looks really cool.

    prime is the only one i currently have and hes fantastic, i can think of very few negatives.

    cant wait to get the others

    i honestly really like the smaller size, just wish the prices would reflect the size change rather than going up.

    I like Shockwave, Jazz seems interesting, and Optimus will be a certain pass. Pretty sure that's a win in Hasbro's book because it means they'll be making money off me, so...

    I love Cybertronian molds/figures. And now real combiners are comming back!!! I like Jazz, even if he looks a little cheap. Optimus, on the other hand, I'm more worried about though. Shockwave is a must buy. (But I must say I really HATE the fact these new figures are so small and don't fit with CHUGur/WFC figures. Jazz might could slip by, Shockwave is just short...)

    They seem to have fine articulation, especially Optimus, and the case assortment isn't "5 Bumblebees and 1 each of everyone else."

    I'm looking forward to the new Optimus as i really enjoy WFC Prime and i also really need a new gun for WFC Prime any way. I also like the combiners but I know I won't have enough money and the right amount of luck to get all five of them
