    I can only speak for my copy of Take Off... But here is a list:

    The good:
    - Very sturdy
    - Thick plastic

    The bad:
    - Very tight tolerances

    I'm really liking the unique toys in robot mode, especially swindle. He's just perfect.

    I still am picking up the zeta version, who knows why though. Lol. I am hoping they look and perform well in combined mode. I don't really display I'm alt mode and I'm not a big fan of the kibble bots. I wonder if they will try to clean up the rest of the bots to come or if it's already a done deal.

    It's weird since the TW constructor bots were reasonably clean. Would have thought zeta would have had similar design.

    I think for the Combaticons Zeta went in a very 'perfect altmode' direction. When fully transformed, Take Off has NO visible robot bits at all. It's by far the best space shuttle altmode I've ever seen. Whirlblade is similar... aside from the hole underneath where the combiner peg comes out of in arm mode, the vehicle has no real indications of being a robot.

    If you look at Constructor and SkyTerror, it's the opposite... they focused more on the bot modes.

    Yea, that is a model. It shows you how real the Zeta alt modes are. I love these bots so far. I just wish whirlwind fit in box after blades applied.

    I would actually buy a box with inserts for storage if there was one.

    The comments I see on the zeta weibo page are for January.ZA -04.
    And there are also very strong users requesting future projects for zeta menasor, defender ... hopefully they catch these projects.

    Speaking specifically about UT Swindle. If I had it to do over again I'd pass on him. He's super tabby, which always makes me worry about incurring stress marks and overall I'm just left with feelings of meh now that I've had him in my possession awhile. I'm not able to compare the Zeta side-by-side with UT's Bruticus (or what member limbs are out thus far), but I think if I had it to do again I'd wait for MMC's version. Simply as a cross comparison of various attempts if nothing else.

    I was going to wait until all the figures were out but I think I might have to start acquiring these now.

    I have Warbos and the first two of these guys. Warbos is still one of my favorite combiners (and I have a boat load) but once I got Constructor, I realized how....small the Warbo and such are.
    If I were you, I'd go with whatever "scale" you're looking to represent. I don't pose mine in groups or anything like that. I group by character so size is irrelevant to me.

    Finally got my hands on Whirlblade...He has a worse robot mode than Take Off, but his alt-mode is beautiful! He is very sturdy but suffer from quite tight tolerances too...

    I am glad that the leg bots look a lot better...

    I also ordered the UT set... Lets see what happens...

    Once I transformed Whirlblade I never changed him back to bot, 'cause it's beautiful unlike his bot mode. Also, it really is a pain, unlike Take Off which I found more fun. I never even bothered to change UT Swindle. He looks great as a bot, and it fills that role perfectly....so far.

    Yeah, transformation is definitely the thing I dislike the most of these awesome guys. Moving around the parts gets very scary because of how tight they are. Thank goodness the plastic is super durable. No stress marks yet. I'll also be leaving them in alt mode until their brethren arrive.
