    So I have all of wave 1 and the voyagers for wave two, and this is what I have to say...they are all AWESOME!!! They are all incredibly fun and looking sharp. I love leader Grimlock and Prime. Voyager Grimlock is also a lot of fun and the Dinobots overall are the gems of the line so far. I cannot wait for Strafe, Slash, Slog and Snarl! Even deluxe Bumblebee is a ton of fun and I believe he has one of the most accurate head sculpts for the character. All in all, I love what's been coming out and I haven't had this much love from movie figures since ROTF. Yesss, keep it up Hasbro...I wanna grab that Lockdown!

    Picked up Crosshairs and Slug today, really can't stand the twin horns on his lower jaw and the stupid sword storage, but he's still a great figure.

    If Crosshairs had any decent head articulation he'd be perfect, as he is, he's still awesome, just a bit limited in his neck.

    Caught up with deluxes until wave 2 hits.

    Lots to go all the black on his body will be silver and red and gold detail. I'm hoping I can match the green to paint his chest top of feet and shins.

    Crosshairs has become a favorite of mine right now because I have enjoyed taking a figure that lacked a ton of detail and rescuing him by getting out my paint brushes. That, combined with nonnef's extra gun for him, and Crosshairs is looking really good!

    But the truth is I love all these figures. Slug might be the weakest but even then he is a very solid figure once I figured out how to store his swords in dino mode (under his belly). Scorn has so much attitude thanks to the head swivel, I've got Grimlock modded so he can hold his mace right and he has a double-bladed dagger, and Hound is just fun to play around with, what with all his guns.

    I am trying to be smart and hold off on buying figures that I'm less than thrilled with just so I have a complete set. Hence why Galvatron is not part of my collection yet and I am not sure on Lockdown (depends if he can assume the gun face mode)

    ok...now I KNOW I haven't seen any reviewers mention this...but if you have a Tamashii stage, Evasion Prime actually has a port that it can plug into in both modes!!!

    So you can get some awesome in the air shots! Well I'll let this speak its volume for me...

    Strafe has a port for a Tamashii stage, evasion mode Optimus has one...

    And I just looked at Scorn and he has one too! People need to check all the other figures, it seems as though it's a line wide thing.

    That is really cool.

    Great pics! I also agree that the voyager Grimlock does look a bit better than the leader one.
