    I'm so impressed that they had the imagination to take on Serpent O.R. That is a nice mold choice too, giving him a cape. I'm selling all my FP stuff so I won't go for it but I really like the Krok & G2 SS too.

    Are completely new characters with new names and color schemes that aren't homaging anything really more ideal than very obscure characters with names that are barely known by anyone with a color scheme based on a long-forgotten toy that few people saw in the first place?

    Or put simply
    - a character 100% of people don't know or have any attachment to
    or
    - a character 90% of people don't know or have any attachment to

    Nacelle being an existing character and having a color scheme based on an obscure source is more appealing to me than if the character Nacelle and the color scheme never existed before now.

    Krok. The rest of the service seems utterly boring.

    I would say Krok because he fills in that need for updated G1 toy. I do like seekers though, so Nacelle and G2 Starscream are must gets for me. Perhaps the bonus figure will be Redwing? I know there's a segment of fans who are getting sick of the classic seeker mold but I love it.

    Just now came across this poll. I was pretty disappointed with the line up this year. I voted for Tarantulas as he is the only one I particularly care for.

    Krok is basically carrying this set, he is the only one even close to be interesting and looking like the character he’s mean to represent, I’ll give a worth while mention to Serpent o.r. just cos its an interesting idea and sort of works.

    Nacelle it’s a good tooling and all but it’s old and it’s a reference to a character that promoed in a catalogue all of 4 people knew existed before this set came out.

    G2 starscreem… basically g1 starscreem which we have at least 3 paint jobs of already.

    Tarantulas looks so little like Tarantulas as to make the whole toy utterly pointless.

    And then there is Zap… What the actually hell, let start with a tooling that has been over used already and the only really good use of it is yet to come out (nightbeat), slap on a less than interesting paint job that is a reference to… did that toy even come out, I honestly don’t know or care enough to look up.


    Sadly Krok does such a good job and the fact he is clearly the most popular member of the set, I don’t see picking 1 up on the after market being a cheaper option I will be picking up the whole thing even though the majority of the is disappointing to say the least.

    They said Ultra Mammoth was too expensive for them to continue doing Voyagers unfortunately.

    Also, Krok is the best. Serpent O.R. is the most interesting, Nacelle and Zap are the most completely unexpected, Tarantulas is the most inappropriate use of the mold, G2 Starscream is the most boring.

    They should really have replaced Starscream for another mold from the set if they had to use a mold twice. Maybe RiD Dreadwind or Masterforce Minerva.

    I'm actually excited for all of them.

    I'm a big fan of G2 so there's two more figures for that
    Another DoFP Predacon again, awesome
    Nacelle, I don't have that mold (FP Thrust wings)
    A JIGoe crossover!

    Stealth bomber Megatron is not an old mold and is a pretty good mold...a little small for Megatron but perfectly fine for Krok...

    Krok is the only one I'm even remotely interested in. A huge step backwards from 2.0... I can't believe they're using the outdated for the Seeker mold for the umpteenth time twice, Zap and Serpent O.R. hold no interest to me and Tarantulas really needed a new head to work. Krok is awesome, but otherwise the set is hugely disappointed.

    I think I'm the only one without a classics mold seeker, so I'm looking forward to Starscream and Nacelle. Krok and Serpent.O.R look damn good too. I don't know Tarantulas from a hole in the ground, but I'm a sucker for a motorbike mold. Sorry Zap, you are the weakest link, goodbye. Don't know him, hate the chest non-ground clearance on that mold. If they're doing more Actionmaster based figures I need me a Rad please, just not from FoC Jazz/Sideswipe, maybe a Hot Rod mold. And Fulcrum would be awesome as well, but only if he has the chin that can silence a room. Can't think of a bomb, or sub shaped figure to base him off of though. Maybe Dive-Dive from Go-bots? Kidding! But I do want a Fulcrum, seriously.

    Krock who was an action master I actually really liked back in the day. Other than that this is a VERY weak set filled with too many obscure references and overused molds. Tarantulus could have been something amazing but the mold choice does nothing for me due to the head mold completely ruining the look.

    I voted Tarantulas. He's the only one that actually has a shelf to "fit" on.
    Although Nacelle & Zap have certainly grown on me. I also really like Serpent OR & G2 Starscream. I'll definitely be ordering the full set this year.
