    Anything with usable knee and hip articulation, really-
    DotM commander Optimus
    DotM commander Guzzle
    DotM legion Bumblebee
    RiD legion Evac
    Prime legion Cliffjumper
    Prime legion Wheeljack
    BH legion Smokescreen...

    There are loads of others that would work, but these were the first ones to come to mind.

    Grimlock's entire weapon is far too long to store on his tail, but the black part isn't.

    So here's a nice place to store the grey portion.

    I gotta say this line is not bad so far, I just wish there were more options in deluxe lines in the earlier waves.

    Just got Drift, and I have to say he is my new favorite Deluxe. The car mode is finicky though.

    I just got Crosshairs today. He's a lot better than I thought he would be. He's probably my favorite AOE figure so far (well, out of the three I have).

    So Slash is growing on me. The robot mode is ok but I am beginning to dig the dino mode. I think it helps that I now have it as my headcanon that Slash is female (she has high-heel like feet and the fact that the raptors in Jurassic Park were female... clever girl).

    Also, once I did the hand mod on Strafe I am now really digging him. So far now the only one I haven't done a mod or paint app to is Slash... need to figure out something to do with her.

    I've done the weapon mod to Grimlock to give him a mace and a double-bladed dagger, painted Scorn's sword, did the hand mod to Strafe, and painted up Snarl's chest lines.

    I feel kinda bad for Hound, as he was my favorite in the beginnning but now I haven't goofed around with him recently... need to pick him back up.

    I was unimpressed with this line at first (and still am in some respects), but those two Platinum sets they showed at Botcon look awesome. I went from "I don't really care for Drift," to "Dear God, when does that set come out?!"

    I think it's nice that they gave some nice paint apps to Crosshairs too. He's got his tail lights painted, and it seems like he might have the stripes on both sides of his alt mode, although it's hard to tell from the pictures taken. I was on the fence about that guy for a while, but proper paint apps have pushed me over the edge, so I will definitely be getting it.

    My only nits to pick: I wish they'd released the rusty EM Prime in that set, and just dropped the Breakout set altogether, and I would've rather had a nicely-painted HO Bee, instead of the new Bee. But everything else looks great!
