    Wait what? Might be photoshop trickery or the fact that I'm a bit tired, but it looks like Krok and Zap have new heads. Kind of weird that they took Botcon Thrust and slapped a regular seeker on the body.

    Krok, Serpent O.R. and Tarantulas are the only real interests for me. Haven't decided who really wins out. Right now it's Serpent O.R. but Kroks new head might change that.

    Zap had potential if they weren't using that Gen BB mold. I do not like the mold in the least. The first chance to get an Axelerator with a new headsculpt, even if it is based on that Block Town version, has me annoyed beyond anything.

    Unless I'm seeing it wrong, Krok has the Dreadwing head and Zap has the Nightbeat head.

    Having said that, the heads they're using really do match the characters the way they're painted.

    I actually hope the 7th one is Windbreaker from Zap.

    Ok, some people like those toys. Those people can vote in any of the toys that they like most. I guess the "none" is for those, like me, didn't like any of those new toys. *to me* they are all terrible. But you are free to like and buy them.

    Maybe I am just to much angry with those reveals. FP panel is the one that I was waiting most. And is sad to not like any of those toys.

    You're seeing it wrong. Krok's is waaaaaaay off Dreadwing, heck its closer to Megs, and Zap's is a photoshopped one that... Also looks closer to Bumblebee

    Windbreaker is pretty much guaranteed to be the freebie though

    Krok's the winner all around though

    I do have to ask what you were expecting. Because "Prototype colours Thrust", "Incredibly obscure character with a Kre-On for a double reference", "Actionmaster with partner" and "GI Joe Crossover Character" seem pretty much right up their alley. Tarantulas and Starscream are weak, sure, but the others are good on the concept side

    Krok might have Dreadwing's head, it's hard to tell from the deco and the size of the pics. Zap though has a new head. It looks nothing like Nightbeat's unless they changed it. Actually it bears some resemblance to Nightbeats, but there are definite alterations to the sculpt.

    As I said, it's not about whether you like them or not. It's calling them "trash" and basically putting down those that like them. I can understand being disappointed, but look at it this way: Sub service 1.0 and 2.0 didn't feature any G2 bots. Now, after waiting for several years, I will finally have a classics G2 Starscream to display with my G2 club Ramjet. After hoping for some kind of G2 presence, and being let down in both previous subscriptions, this one makes me happy.

    Botcon 2011 featured pretty much all Animated molds. I'm not an animated fan by any stretch of the imagination, but that didn't give me an "ok" to call them garbage. I just...didn't buy them.

    It's perfectly fine to not like a reveal, and I hope next year's at least has something for you.

    Who knows, maybe the membership figure will blow you away this year.

    BH Dreadwing or BH Grimwing? Because I've seen plenty of customs of Silverbolt outta Grimwing, and the only Dreadwing custom I've seen that works is Jhiaxus.

    And if it's Grimwing, hey, I believe that was one of the top-voted exclusive options for the next edition of TakTom's Transformers Generations magazine.

    Anyway, hard for me to choose, because honestly I don't think I'd get the subscription for these, but if I did I would be glad to welcome four of the six into my collection (amusingly, I actually think the Seekers are the weakest ones, and traditionally I love Seekers!). Krok probably edges out the competition, but only barely. Serpent O.R. has a deco to die for.

    Zap is the only one I don't really care for (don't like the mold). Krok works, but I don't know much about the AM, but it looks good as that mold. Serp, love the mold, can't pass a Wreck-gar mold, and I haven't passed on any classic seeker.

    They're all horrific. Who actually wants to pay the premium prices for this crap?

    No, I mean the BH Dreadwing mold. I'm talking about a pre-beast Silverbolt. He's got Silverbolty feet and the backpack looks like it could emulate the feather missiles. He'd fit in great with Rampage and Transmutate. Grimwing would tower over Rampage.

    I could go for more Scavengers but only because most of them are Mayhem Attack Squad affiliates...

    Serpentor for me, with Zap a close second (because of the creativity of the concept more than the actual mold). Krok and Nacelle are tied for third.

    Me. I think it's a stronger lineup than last year.
