    looks good. nice color scheme. better than the wreck-gar mold. I think they should have used Deluxe Groove in these colors.

    Ewwww, that head sculpt is nasty and those colors are puke.

    Shoulda been Groove since his TM vehicle mode was a cycle.

    I don't outright hate it, but when I think of an agile character like Tarantulas, I don't think a heavy hitter body type mold like Rook's really fits the character. I think Drag Strip would have been a better choice. Personally, I would have rather seen the Rook mold used for a Scorponok. :)

    So far, no duplicate characters from the '06 set. This worries me because I want the main characters. As much as it appeals to me to get a Terrasaur, Scroponok, and Inferno, I'd still want a Megatron and Waspinator. Not to mention the Maximals that should be at the show. I want the main crew.

    I don't think I've seen anything so un-Tarantulas in my life. :sly2:

    With Thrustinator and the Generations Waspinator I'd B surprised if we got a third.

    Well, there's no reason to buy this years set. I thought the other 5 figures would be good after seeing how bad Ravage looked, but after seeing the second figure, I don't care for him at all either.

    The Rook mold works for Impactor, but this is just no.

    I didn't think they would do any transmetal figures. I wonder who the other 3 are going to be.

    I wasn't planning to go to Botcon this coming year. So it isn't like I'm personally affected or anything.

    As disappointed as people were with this year's set (outside of maybe one or two toys), this set is shaping up to be worse.

    I'd have taken retools of the Prime Beast Hunters beasts or the AoE Dinobots over this.

    Well, this is an... interesting take on Tarantulas.

    At least I'm giving this set a chance. Besides, this seems unique enough. I do wonder how Tarantulas, in this year's comic's canon, would feel about this kind of upgrade.

    Yeah no, I will just wait for a Generations figure that turns into a spider cause this does not scream Tarantulas, so sad.

    This mold should have been Seaclamp using two combiner hands for the claws. Guess the Tripredacus Council is ruled out then.
