Preordered with the quickness!!!!!
More pics c/o CK.
And all reservations are now gone. Preordered.
Now to decide which bots get the axe from my want list.
Wow, these are way smaller than I expected. Wish they were bigger, but I don't remember if this was in scale with the rest of the robots. (I know, scale in Transformers, but I like them to be in scale as much as possible)
Still, these looks FREAKING AWESOME! These 3D prototypes have made me feel so much better. Hope the price is right, because I really want these.
They're pretty small, but it's not like I was expecting them to be much bigger than that. One of the cool things about third parties handling these figures is that they don't have to fit into the incredibly limiting size classes like Hasbro had to. A poseable Animated figure below the deluxe price point that wasn't completely built around a gimmick wasn't really possible before this point...
Wait, they are bigger than Vangelus?
Looking amazing! The effort they put into redesigning so many aspects of these figures was totally worth it; they look to fit right in with Animated toys now!
These guys look great -- I just wish I liked Huffer and Pipes more. Hopefully, there will be enough support for more releases.
They're tiny! The sculpting looks great though.
While they're in scale with activator Bumblebee, I wish they were in scale with deluxe Bumblebee. I wish that a lot.
Second run fellas, make a second run down the line if all goes well. Heck, event Hasbro is in the upsizing business these days.
I do wish these were a little bigger, scaled towards either the deluxe or Jetpack Bumblebee mold instead of the Activator, since that thing really clashes when put with mainline toys because of the way the arms are designed and the weird window paint apps on the fronts of his legs.
Maybe they intend to make their own properly scaled Bumblebee later on?
No matter what, I'll still get them. Their scale issues aren't anywhere near as bad as poor Lugnut.
WOW can't wait to pick them up.
Wow. $60 for two figures that are, essentially, Cyberverse commander sized? That has to be some kind of mistake.
Yeah, I preordered, but now seeing that they're basically legends size, I'm not thinking they're worth $60. I'm going to cancel my order.
Yep, I'm in the group that isn't super-happy with size-to-price ratio. It's a little steep for TINY toys. I'm still keen on buying them though, hence why I pre-ordered them, but I'd feel better if they were either bigger or cheaper. Still, it's basically US$30 a pop for third-party figures, but I still wish they were cheaper. Or bigger. Definitely bigger.
I really like that Bumblebee. Which one is that?
EDIT: NM, Obviously the Animated version =)
On topic, that's pretty expensive. Really like the fig. It's a laugh. Would buy if it was cheaper.
I really hope these come with a Vangelus figure as a pre-order bonus. If not, it needs to be done in the future! I want my Animated Vangelus.
