These all look great to me. I am glad that they upscaled these newer figures hopefully Huffer and Seaspray are upscaled down the line. The only thing that bothers me is Beachcombers legs, I hope they give him some heels. The way he looks now seems like there is no support from falling back.

Kinda wished beachcomber had a heel on him... feet look funny at a side angle with only the borders of the legs really holding him up...

Cogz looks amazing and I'm anxious to get him. Beachcomber looks OK, but I think I may actually like Hasbro's better. Either way he's not a character design I like enough to spend more money on.

Gears looks ok, but the head looks a bit weird. I HATE the look of Beachcomber, which is a shame because it's probably my favorite minibot not named Bumblebee. I was going to pass on Outback beforehand and the prototype pics do nothing to change my mind.

At this size they should have better articulation and more complex engineering. I mean, judging by these pics, Cogz is almost full-on Deluxe size.
That sums up my feelings for these as well.

I'm all in for the upscale in size. I think they look pretty good next to the newer MP molds.

Totally in agreement on Beachcomber though. He definitely needs some sort of foot and heel to balance. If there's one thing I don;t like, it's a TF that can't stand.

I was really hoping they would have branched out and hit up all of the mini-bots, including Powerdive.

It would be really nice too if they redid Huffer and Seaspray in the larger scale.

They look good. Cogz is the shiznit. I hope they fix the QC issues Hench had for outback and he'll be nice too.

Beachcomber needs something done with the legs... specifically the feet. Less angle/slope at the foot and more of a defined dashboard/foot recess might make it look better.

Overall very happy with the size of these. Yes they look like Legends up-scaled without the detail. But that's what we asked for from the beginning. And I'm not complaining.

I just want Rager and Spray to be the same size as well so they fit in with classics Bee and Cliffjumper.

Any extra detail they can add would just be a plus!
Don't like my opinion? Go opine yourself.

Cogz is adorable! I love it! Outback being a redeco of Hench isn't too surprising. Beachcomber is looking awesome! I need these guys in my collection, no question.

outback needs a new chestpiece,brawn's is too iconic, that was the main part that separated him from brawn, cogs looks great though, might have to get him, the others, i have already in some form or another on my classics shelf

This--^ NOT Beachcomber is the only less than stellar example from this group thus far. But honestly that's not as big a dig as it might otherwise be because all other MW's have been awesome, so to have one less than shining star isn't too bad.
