    That slingshot sold me on Wheelie, too. I'm wondering why Powerdive is in Skywarp's color scheme. It's hard to tell the size of megatron's head. That's the main thing that will determine how well it pulls that off. The colors are bright enough, but I'm sad at the lack of purple camo. Springer and Swerve look nice. Cliffjumper and Brawn are pretty bad. Hotspot is ok. I may get that one, but it's not a high priority. So far, Springer, Swerve, Wheelie, and Powerdive are the main ones I want. I just hope they don't end up being stupid expensive for no reason.

    Hot Spot is a definite buy.

    Wheelie and Powerdive are the only ones I can say I'm going to have to get. All the others except Brawn and Cliffjumper would have been bought if I had found them at US retail, but they aren't worth the bother of buying otherwise.

    I don't get the complaints about Wheelie. The mold is awesome and it's not like the colors are disgusting. I dunno, maybe it's because I usually separate characters from their toys, and don't care a lick about scale.

    But alas, another four deluxes I will need to re-complete my Generations collection.

    Sigh.

    I like Swerve because he don't have a glut of that mold, the Legends figures are lovely, and maybe Dead End to go with Breakdown.
    The rest are a skip, new heads are new heads which is always nice, but that Brawn just looks like a KO.

    Sounds like you do get the complaints about Wheelie. It's a good mold but it's a bad match for the character both by looking nothing like his classic self and being way out of scale for him in comparrison to the other Chugurs.

    I can totally understand how that might not matter for some people, but for me, at this point, the toys are all about representing the characters from fiction that I love. This doesn't do that well at all.


    -ZacWilliam, although if the toy is cool enough and not TOO distinctive I'm fine with making up a new fan character to use a cool toy as.

    I just realized that Swerve has painted hubcaps this time! A shame Hasbro couldn't do the same for Wheelie. Bluestreak looks like a Jazz repaint, but I don't recognize which version. And as much as I love Hot Spot's character, the new head doesn't look a damn thing like him. His head is blue! His head is blue! HIS GODDAMN HEAD IS BLUE!!!!

    I can go check the toy of him in my basement, but I'm pretty sure it's the same entirely black with red eyes it was for my entire childhood.


    -ZacWilliam, that's much more prominent for me than his super brief appearences in fiction, so this works. :)

    ...okay, Swerve, Wheelie and Hot Spot are ones I'm really thinking about, and I might consider some of the others based on price. I almost want the Brawn just because it might be the easier way to get that mold, but the head looks really silly.

    I'll probably end up buying all four Deluxes as a set. Like the fact Wheelie has a slingshot and a new head, like Springer and Swerve. Cliffjumper I'm a bit "eh" on, might end up with him though if buying a set of all four is more economical.

    Voyagers - lukewarm on Hot Spot since he doesn't seem to have a new head, love Powerdive, indifferent on Brawn and not sure of Megatron. Would have preferred the Combat Hero deco to be honest.

    Scouts - kinda cool ideas but can't see myself picking any of them up. Maybe Brawl to go with SG Octopunch, but that's all.

    Legends - yeah, they're bought. I'll need to track down a Legends Skywarp though for the three Seekers...

    Legends: pre-ordering ASAP
    Scouts: Laserbeak is the only one I like, but I don't have a place for him.
    Deluxes: Although I really like Springer, Wheelie and Swerve; Defender, too big and too big.
    Voyagers: I have a burning need for Powerdive and Megatron and Hot Shot is a probably.

    Looks like he does to me.

    I'm pretty sure all of them above Scout sized have new heads.


    -ZacWilliam, one of the selling points iirc...

    As bad as some of those are, I'm getting the urge to get pretty much ALL of them. Curse you Hasbro, pimping the shit out of those molds!

    I'm off to Asia in Oct/Nov, hope they're available then. Looks like I'll need to bring a few (more) empty suitcases!

    At three times the US MSRP. Yay!

    Hot Spot and Wheelie are a definite. The rest are a 'wait and pray'.
