    They look awesome. :)  I love how the artist managed to make them look like their own character despite being retools of existing molds.

    See, although I'm still not a fan of them all being mainly comprised of the exact same two colors, I would love if the molds looked like these do, physically. Like, those are super neat.

    I like it. Makes them seem more like a team wearing the same colors.

    No kidding. This is the very definition of artistic license.

    The Constructicons do a better job at having a unified two tone color scheme.

    They do. Their color scheme isn't as stingingly neon as these gals.

    The art looks great. The colors... still need some white or silver to break it up.

    I wonder if we'll get to see more Torchbearers on Caminus down the road. It'd be neat if the color scheme is an indicator of having that position.

    Hey, they're not neon.

    They're more of a pastel.

    But really, I think why these don't work as well is because the colors are so split up that each character looks like a mess, and it looks even worse all together. The constructicons have two colors, but they're nicely divided into solid blocks that aren't too busy on the whole, making the unified color scheme easier on the eyes.

    These look better in the comics.

    But 3ding them would help a lot.
