    I wanna love the individual robots, but some of the articulation limitations are killing me.

    Some of them are okay at best. The vehicle forms on the other hand are fantastic.

    Looks decent but im sure someone will eventually have some sort of expensive "upgrade" kit.

    I feel sorry for Long Haul. Shittiest robot mode and he has to be the crotch in his team. He just can't win.

    These individual bots aren't looking so hot. The articulation is disappointing. This set is better for people who only care about the combined mode.

    The close ups make most look better, I'm seeing more elbows, Though two that still appear not to have them.

    Difficult to understand the gushing over this… Its biggest positive attribute is that it is trying very hard to look G1.

    Remember these photos always look the paint look 10X that when they are in hand as well… i wish I could get excited over it, but it aint happening.

    I'm torn between buying this when it comes out in the Fall or waiting for some 3rd party company like FansToys to tackle a much better MP-scaled version. Devastator looks very impressive, but the individual bots are lacking in detail and articulation. :(

    While I was kind of hoping for a bit better overall in bot designs, I'm quite happy with how the whole set has turned out. And if the size comparisons are anywhere close to accurate, I'll be very happy with the final product when it's in hand.

    This year is going to be devestating to my wallet with all the combiners and some great stand alone figures coming out.

    About what I expected, so I'm not disappointed much. The arms are a let down but I'm hoping Scavengers legs can come in a bit at the hips, he's a little bow legged. But they'll be in Devastator mode 90-95% of the time. Still excited!

    This set is exceeding my expectations - I was fearing the worst for the individual figures. That said, Long Haul suffers the most which is understandable, but I find the lack of elbows on Scrapper to be inexcusable.

    Third Party Gods, Hear My Prayer! Give us a proper head and swappable arms for Srapper and Long Haul! I Beseech Thee!

    To be fair, the paint apps and head sculpts are absolutely bang on the money, it's the articulation and the limitations of being a 6 team combiner workin on a budget.

    Will deffo pick the set up, the selling point is Devy which they nailed bang on the money. Can see what marvellous meant when they looked upscaled now. Some look like upscaled legends and some upscaled deluxes.

    Is this confirmed to be a Toys R Us exclusive, as was rumored? I didn't see any info today about that, other than the price and "Fall 2015" release date.

    I'm sorry but these pictures make them all look /AWFUL/. I don't understand how they look so bad. Only Scavenger and Mixmaster look decent. Bonecrusher actually looks horrid in that picture. UGH.
