    I\'m confused.  How does the headmaster work on Apeface?  He\'s definitely using a Titans Return style head, but the face but the face bit seems to change between robot and gorilla modes.  Maybe the headmaster has two faces molded into it; one on the back like usual and the other on the back of the legs?  Spinister has two cockpit sections, one of which looks to be buried in the back of helicopter mode.  Astrotrain and Crosshairs are pretty normal looking.

    Apeface and Spinister are a definite preorder for me. May pick up the other two at retail.

    Spinister and Apeface both look fantastic.
    I want to really like that Astrotrain, but the hollowed out areas and the shabby look of the alt modes kind of put me off a bit. Maybe he will look a lot better in real photos.
    Crosshairs I don't care much for.

    I don't even know if it's a good thing for reveals or a bad thing because it's like spoiling the end of the movie.

     OK now for my 2 cents.
    Astrotrain looks great much better than the TR version, glad I saved the box.
     Apeface  looks amazing if it’s true that he is a Headmaster This will probably be my favorite toy from this line yet.
    Spinster although not my favorite G1 character he is missing what made him a Transformer I had to by
    his Targetmasters! I think they really did a miss step here and they could have used old molds for this,
     30th Scoops Targetmasters Caliburst and Holepunch repainted to make Singe and Hairsplitter.
    Crosshairs is greatvbeen wanting one since they made the Decepticon Targetmasters for TR.  But as stated on this board I my self would have used the U.S. Kip mold. Also just as Spinster he is missing his Targetmaster! There is good news though if you can but the Takara Legends Twin Twist he comes with Spoilsport who looks a lot like Pinpointer.

    They’re all must buys for me except for Crosshairs. I guess Apeface’s weird headmaster is the reason he wasn’t in TR? It looks like the robot face is on the back of the legs instead of the standard TR heel spur thing.

    I HAVE A MIGHTY NEED.

    I also am not sure how to feel about the fact I have TR Astrotrain, since the Leader actually has the proper Space Choo Choo mode. I suppose Darkmoon gets to be a full fledged transector now.

    With the latter it was obvious his appearance after Ironhide.

    Astrotrain looks AMAZING. It is kind of funny how the line of Cybertron mode space vehicles is where a convincing train mode comes in for the guy, but I'm not complaining! :D 

    Spinster looks great as well. I look forward to joining him with Krok and my custom Fulcrum.

    Crosshairs and Apefacr are less interesting to me, but still look great. Siege is hitting it out of the park!

    I just wish this wave had one more surprise. Just like how they kept prowl a secret from wave 2 and barricade a secret from wave 4.

    Hell yeah, they made Spinister anyway! At last, a fourth Scavenger to add to the shelf. Not sure about his head though but there's always Shapeways for a more MTMTE one.

    Apeface isn't for me but he does look rather good. I really like what they've done with his ape, uh, face in that he actually has one. The one on the original toy just looks like a purple rectangle.
