    Thanks! Not ideal but I don’t hate it

    EDIT: Damn just watched the video and realized the bear cub is needed to fill in the box mode too :/ This is one if the cuter BB molds in my opinion but I need more of a transformation than that personally.

    I think most would agree that one of the parrot molds (Echoblaster, Rumblebeat, or Space Anthem) are one of the best. I prefer Space Anthem because of his color, and he's the only one of the three which comes with a box.
    Others I enjoy are the lobster/crawdad, dragon, mantis, kangaroo, and one of the ninja turtles.
    I've heard good things about White Noise the owl, but I don't have him yet.
    I think they're all good. The only one I would say is below par is Leviathon the whale. All the others are top notch :)

    Personally, I'd slot the hippo/rhino below the kitties.

    @Durumiii As far as recommendations? Dio, always start with Dios. ;) 

    Kidding aside, there are so many good molds; parrot, owl, steggo, spider, beetle are some of my standouts. There is a certain charm to some of their older molds like Dio, JoJo, Moma, and Delta. Some of their newest stuff like the kangaroo, mega Dio, hornet, and mantis bring some interesting complications to the line.

    This is a line with very few missteps. Even the weaker molds bring some interesting things to the party.

    Unfortunately the bear is called KarmaKuma, so I can’t see that happening.

    I am quickly building up my collection. Still missing a lot, but I'm up over a dozen molds. Is there anything in particular that appeal to you? The character of the figure? The mechanics of the transformation? Articulation and play value of the alt mode? The appeal of a particular creature?

    Right now I'd have to say Ricochet the kangaroo is hitting near the top of my list. As a robot kangaroo - sorry, boxing kangaroo - she's pretty great. Very articulated, popping colors, the little joey in her pouch. The range of motion in her neck, head, and ears gives her plenty of character, too. And then she transforms. And while it is mostly folding her head down and tucking her tail in, there is more to it than that. When you're done, everything should be firmly in place, giving one of the denser cubes in the line.

    It's important that the character or shape is cool, but I hope the transformation method is more fun, I'll take note of the kangaroo. Thank you

    This one thoroughly impresses me.
    I just wish Diaclone pilots would fit like with Deep One.

    Defitiely recommend one of the beetles too. Transformation is complex enough that most probably couldn’t do it without directions the first time, but once you’ve done it it is pretty easy and smooth.

    Always love your shots! Believe all AMTS do fit the Diaclone pilots.

    Hey team,

    Can anyone weigh-in on the dragon? Is it neat to transform and is it fun to pose in dragon mode? My favorites thus far include Nightcrawler, Ricochet and Toxichorn as a frame of reference. Thanks for your insights.

    I have all 3 versions of Dragon, and I really love it, definitely enjoyable to fiddle with IMO

    The dragon is super cool and has an interesting transformation. Cube mode reminds me of a coiled snake. I will say it feels severely lacking in side to side articulation though.

    Thanks!
    I kind of lost a lot of enthusiasm for the line due to the exclusivity, and the fact my daughter isn't as excited about it anymore, but sometimes a release really hits high notes for me. This one definitely did, so I may track down the orange one as well.

    Dragons, you say?
