    I think they all look pretty good, actually. Though I won't be getting Skywarp, I have Thundercracker, and he was quite the disappointment.

    the only reason to get it is either not wanting to wait for a much cheaper us version that has more to it than the GF one, or simply that box.

    The G1 style box really makes Primus more desirable than it actually is. Very smart marketing move by Takra.

    Cooool! Primus looks incredible in that package, now I need a spot to store it!
    The others look pretty neat, I'm glad the molded faction logos went now so we can get other-faction recolours. Looks like I'll be tracking a few of these down.

    Cannonball does look pretty nifty but I'm still passing. Skywarp... ick, but I might get anyway since it's Skywarp. Though black trim instead of the white might help a lot. And Soundblaster is predictably sweet, although he looks more dark grey than black.

    If they wanted to give cannonball an eyepatch, why didn't they just frickin' remold the head. I think the half black paintjob looks silly. He went straight from a maybe to really low clearance buy after I saw the club magazine page.

    Eh... the black paint looks a little rediculous, but it's not something that can't be easily rectified. I can see why people wouldn't want that Skywarp, but I think he looks pretty good. The red on the wings is a bit puzzling, but I think the thing that throws him off the most is the white trim instead of black.

    Soundblaster looks awesome. Of course, I'm not sure when he'll be out, but I want him! Cannonball looks like shit (Hasbro, WTF were you guys smokin'?), but LOC Thundercracker looks sweet! :D  Skywarp...well, I have to pick him up, since I'm a Skywarp fanatic, so I'm gonna cry when I pick him up, and they won't be tears of joy...

    Cannonball looks more like a cheap knock off

    Soundblaster looks awesome, but I usually don't buy imports. I hope he comes to the U.S.

    Cannonball should have a hook not a gun. And when you insert his cyber planet key, he should say "Arrrr..."

    And that's a nice repaint of Thundercracker... IF HE WAS MEANT TO BE CYCLONUS

    That alone woudl make me wanna buy him... I can't help feeling Cannonball could have been so much better. Something with such an original name deserves to be a littel special, but the paintjob looks naff and... man, that skeleton sucks...

    Soundblaster loosk terrific! I think a little too much black, but the toy itself looks amazing... not sure how it's gonna compare to Soundwave in the long run, guess we'll have to see.

    A lot of people are dissing the Skywarp, but I think it looks pretty kewl. A little vibrant with the colour but still an excellent toy.

    Is that Skywarp?! I am sad. I am not a big fan of that mold and it's too brightly coloured.
