    Cool new head for Axor but it's an awful mold. I'd be into a Jolt repaint if it didn't look 97% identical to the original release.

    Axor and Terradive are bought. Elec. Jolt, not so much.

    Axor will be mine (along with Terradive).

    Jolt is kind of confusing though. I like that they added the extra colors in to break up the dark blue and the new windows are nice as well but it feels like a missed oportunity to leave his primary color the same when they have that nice light metal blue on his feet that could have been the main color.

    Wow. Axor looks much, much better there than in any pictures I've seen before.

    Still definitely passing on Jolt and getting Terradive.

    They should totally rewrite the cardback bios to craft a story about Jolt chasing after a 'con that ends up reversing his whips on him and electrocuting him, causing the electrostatic overcharge that leads to his untimely demise and prohibiting him from appearing in TF3 and capitalizing on the recent uptick in marketing of his alt mode.

    Axor looks SO good. DAMMIT. He was so not on my list...what am I gonna do with two Decepticon bounty hunters?

    But DAMN, he looks good.

    I'm also planning to bite on Jolt now. No way he'll get a new mold now, lol, and I've heard pretty good things about this one.

    I think I've said it before but Axor turned out a lot cooler then I thought he would. The Head sculpt and axe arm really help make the figure feel like more then just a retool.
    Donno if I'll actually get him or not, though.

    Terradive is badass. Can't wait for him.

    Jolt is actually a pretty cool figure. If you never picked up the original, then pick this one up.

    Axor looks nice, will most likely get this guy, and Terradive is a no brainer for me as well. Much as I like the Jolt, I stopped collecting movie figures except for the very obvious G1 homage ones, so no love for him unfortunately.

    Axor looks like a part of his neck is missing. I love the mold though so It's bought. Terradive too. If I don't get a jolt in my last 6 free rotf toys I may buy him.

    First off, these pictures do a lot more justice to the Terradive figure than KOTOYS pictures, he is definitely on my list. This is the first time I have been interested in Jolt as well who looks quite cool. Axor too is cool and uses a great mold to boot.

    These repaints are exactly why I generally dislike the practice in hasbro's hands (back when I used to Collect McFarlin toys they often had impressive repaints).

    Wow those are ugly. Axor especially.

    The colors on Axor really work well together. I think he looks great.

    This thread is a fun back and forth so far. WINS. FAILS. SUCKS. GREAT.

    Naturally.

    Jolt isn't an improvement on the original, in fact it may be a dis-improvement overall.

    Terradive... meh i think i'll wait for a repaint.

    I don't know why anyone would put the Axor/Lockdown mold on their Classics shelf when it doesn't fit the Classics aesthetic.
