    I own these and they are great. Plastic quality is excellent. They are distinctly legends scale though.

    Um, because they have to budget time and resources? :) 

    Yeah, me too.

    Maketoys will be getting my money for the Mobine Missile Launchers soon enough.

    Now if they released recolors of their mini-bots, I'd be more interested.

    I'm itching for a decent Powerglide in my Classics display but the giant head (and the screw in the middle of his face) on the Bomber fig bugs the crap out of me. I'll try to be patient and wait for iGear's version, which will no doubt be better proportioned and bigger to boot.

    I see these as toys to add to your already established Hasbro legends minibots, rather than larger Classics toys like the iGear ones.

    The X-Transbots version is pretty nice. I ended up getting it in a trade, and I've come to appreciate him as a deluxe.

    These toys are a great compliment to an actual legends collection. Some of my favorites: Buy these.

    That Powerglide looks pretty damn awful.
    Glad I have no interest in legends sized figures.

    I bought this from BBTS recently (last 1 in stock, opened) for $45, would have of course held out if I knew they were making more. Hover is pretty cool but my Glider's left hip keeps popping out of it's socket, I can't get it to snap into place. Overall he's a bit fragile.

    I love these guys, and hope they make all the minibots. I'm an eagerly interested buyer.

    I had and loved these two figures, but now that I'm transitioning to iGears' larger scale, they just felt out of place, so I sold them. If it weren't for the size differences, I would have kept them.

    Was it ever mentioned if Maketoys had plans on Windcharger, Tailgate, Gears, Swerve & Hubcap?
