    i have to say teh PCC's are a great idea, but they turned out to be really quite horrible, a shame at a wasted opportunity.

    Wow, this one is a dud. Thanks, but no thanks Hasbro. Looks like it's just the Aerialbots for me so far.

    You skipping Bombshock? He's easily the best looking and tightest feeling combiner so far.

    Thanks :)

    Very nice, I love how these guys cause so much anger for some reason, lots of slanted reviews on these guys, where as most of the time reviews are kind of similar between reviewers.

    I think he looks great, I am a PCC completist I think.

    The red foot gives me a really strong Lightspeed vibe, so maybe if they do Technobots there will be a recolor of him or I can jsut use that drone.

    Man these guys are awesome, looked today and never saw them at any WM.

    The drone feet are excellent. The arms are even more screwed up than the aerial drones. :|

    This one is a pass. The scouts bot mode looks too kibbly. Thanks for the pics though!

    He's odd, but Double Clutch actually looks pretty cool. I'd get him, but I have no interest in his drone's, so I'll probably wait for him to hopefully be repainted and paired with a minicon. With the right shade of orange, and a new head, he could make for decent Wheelie figure.

    Gee this figure sounds like fail in so many departments. *sigh* I guess I'll wait to see the drones in other sets or on sale.

    Check Target :)  That's where I found mine. and that Red drone is the bitch of the group. as someone already mentioned. I'd compare him to the the Skydive looking aerialbot drone. Except this guy looks to fold up once you have combined and cause the figure to fall over. Still, love the way the drones look. They're the best part of this set.

    Welcome for the pics. And I disagree, I think the aerial bots look way more funky :) 

    WHY would anyone want a new Wheelie figure?? :lol 

    Honestly though, when I first saw this dude I thought a repaint in red would make a decent Windcharger :) 


    EDIT: Also, just read Gen Magnus' first post after playing with the figure. And he's right. Maybe I don't view the molds problems as bad as he did. So buyer beware. I can see how this dude could piss a fan off. (Trying to get the yellow chopper drone attached was so difficult. He kept popping off on his own while DC's arm tab kept coming off) The only thing I disagreed about was the DC's head. Mine stays up just fine :) 

    But I do notice a trend with these figures. the 2 pack commanders are 100 times better than the 5 pack commanders. There is a distinct lack of quality between the two. Very odd. I'm thinking they had different designers.

    Found mine at Target.

    Take back what I said about the red drone. Fooling around with him today I realized you can pull up on the bumper piece and the windshield piece and it locks into place much better!

    I found him at Wal-Mart so he's already making the rounds at all the major chains I'd wager.

    If anyone can figure our what is going on here, I'd love to know. I really want to like this mold, and if I can do so with a mod, I'll purchase it again.

    I don't have DC yet, so its a little harder for me to understand what he means. But going by the picture it looks like he may have filed down a peice on the elbow.

    Yeah, I think the Wave 1 5-packs are way better than the Wave 2 ones. Mudslinger has some mold snapping issues, and Double Clutch, well... I rarely say this about ANY TF, but anything but his vehicle mode just plain sucks. I find these kind of engineering oversights inexcusable given how well-done just about everything else we're getting is these days.

    doubleclutch individually is kinda cool, reminds me of a G1 omnibot.
