    or different people care about different things and also understand that sometimes there are design compromises due to budget

    step ahead of me...i've lost track of the CHUG stuff as an MP collector. Now if i'm not mistaken, it seems fasttrack will be the first weaponizer to be designed from the beginning to compliment the titan he pairs with?

    Glad Scorponok gets his shield but him with no gun makes me sad kinda lol, I also like that this one HAS ACTUAL SCORPION EYES, and the fast track is a 100% for me. the others mehhh just depends, I am still holding out for a siege double dealer

    I have found that warning others of erroneous predictions tend to fall on deaf ears, sadly. =/

    You.

    I like you.

    Just getting to look at these...

    Arcee: I really hope those open hands are more functional and durable than the crap open hands T30 Arcee had (I know a few people were lucky enough to get the closed hand version but a lot of people were lucky to just get a chance to order the figure at all and didn't have a choice which hands she had). I hope that part of the car hood (the part behind her head) can slide down a bit more in bot mode and the tire guard plates are worked over a bit. Then this figure might be on the level of the T30 figure. Maybe she can ride the hoverboard with it facing the other way (so the back of the vehicle is below the front of the robot) and that would look better than this sawed off mess that it looks like now.

    Fasttrack looks reasonable. Not blown out of the water but good enough.

    Sky Lynx looks great. Especially the crawler/lynx part while the bird/shuttle part surprisingly isn't as strong.

    Scorponok looks fine as well. I think I'm going to name the larger headmaster component "Tyrant" while the little one stays Zarak.

    It will be interesting to see what else they show us at Toyfair. I'm curious what Megatron will look like (and hope he has wrist articulation next time), how the Quintesson and Allicon look, and maybe some other goodies like Trailbreaker, Runamuck, and whichever Seeker they do next.

    Oh yeah Scorponok and the new Slylynx are my wants. I just wish Walmart and Target will grow a set and have Scorponok in store but I doubt it.

    No, people care, just some more than others and it's perfectly fine to not like any of these figures. This isn't an appreciation thread and I for one, stopped being a completist years ago. I'm still undecided if I'll buy the new Arcee since I like my LG one. I think the make or break for me, will be how good or bad this looks with the front half of the car still attached in robot mode.

    people complain about partsformer but partsformer has been a thing since the beginning. Having to attach Optimus Primes hands to his wrists, and taking off his trailer and using it as a base. All the crap that came off of Megatron and moved around with him. Headmasters are nothing but partsformers. 

    Arcee looks beautiful. And I think her back end can become a shield or some other tool. She\'s a must buy for me

    And people have taken issue with those as well. GPS was around since the beginning as well, don't see that needing to stick around

    So Scorponok's going to be 5'9 to Fort max's 6 since he's a OS retool yeah? Similiar thing happened with Trypticon, short baddies look pathetic next to huge goodies.

    ...yeah and we all hated that. There's a reason that toys have moved away from it. Not even the most rabid geewunner goes "dangit, they messed up Optimus again by making his hands fold out instead of storing them in the trailer!" or clamoring for a Starscream that requires a parts box in either mode.

    Like, there are valid defenses of partsforming, but that's not one of them.

    You may as well defend poor articulation by saying "well, not having knees has been there since day one!"

    Just noticed, it seems like Arcee\'s \"hoverboard\" as a hinge on it, hust under the windshield.
