    Agreed Mechafire. I'm not one who is very negative about many official toys or official fiction, but that Windblade is one of the ugliest Transformers toys I have ever seen. It's in the general realm of 1986 Wheelie ugly.

    So.... NO new larger molds? And only two new Legion molds, one of which looks terrible? Also, another Thunderhoof? None of the other fun Decepticon designs like Springload or Clampdown? Sheesh.... this line is failing both as a kids' line and as a collectors' line. The quality and engineering aren't there for collectors, and the variety isn't there for kids.

    I'm usually not one to complain, but man, between this and the lackluster Generations reveals, this has been the worst Hasbro SDCC presence that I can remember.

    The Robots in Disguise line seems to be one of the weakest toy lines in a while. There are so many interesting toys to be made given the number of Deceptions being out for capture on the show. Instead we get repaints, pokemon/bakugan type minicons and nothing in the warrior class line. Oh and that huge talking Bumblebee that is more hollow than a chocolate Easter bunny. Not much to look forward to I'm afraid.

    Yeah these are disappointing. Not terrible, but not great.

    Wingblade = chicken wishbone.

    These are a dropoff, but will get them all. Windblade is disappointing, but I like that Drift.

    Thunderhoof isn't bad, but what happened to the level of engineering that went into waves 1-3 of the legion figures?

    Thats a no drifts back kibble folding.[​IMG]

    I doubt i will buy any of these. They are really not good enough. They could have just copied sideswipes design to make drift but somehow made him worse.

    I liked swipe, bee and strongarm, and i like fixit. But the rest of these are just not doing anything. And the thing is they want to charge 7 uk pounds. You can buy more for your 7 pounds than these cracker toys. Sorry but true.

    Sideswipe is a really thin plastic toy, looks like drift is that too but he is squat faint and weak looking... Wingblade is really bad...

    The deployers are better and they are cheaper price point and come with weapons... These are even more toyetic, poor renditions, has Hasbro's simplification got out of control?
