    Figures look great, and I am especially happy to see Ratbat get a great toy for once... but, wake me up when Frenzy is announced. Gotta have that Blue Rumble!

    I\'m a bit sad re: Rumble. His proportions are a bit too squat and the lack of elbows is frustrating.

    Still, will probably grab him regardless, that Ratbat looks great.

    Clever design for Spinister, now to see how it all folds up.

    Spinister has double-jointed elbows? Don\'t see those often on a deluxe. Hoping it\'s a sign hell be at least Ironhide-big.

    Those colours on Spinister are really weird looking but in a good way. Classic post ‘86 colours, I love it.

    “Rumble” and Ratbat look great though, hope that means Buzzsaw and “Frenzy” are next.

    Just need those, can live without the extras like Beastbox and Squawktalk

    Safe to assume Frenzy + Buzzsaw will be a Selects release, no?

    Ugh I hope not, there’s enough as it is.

    If they wanted to do that it would have been better to put Ratbat with Buzzsaw, because Frenzy and Rumble are two peas in a pod when it comes to Soundwaves minions :(

    The Frumble looks like Frumble scanned Danny Devito as a Robot mode. But damn, that is a kickin\' Ratbat.
    Lio Convoy is a bit too panel line-y for me.
    Rung is cool. I\'ll through him next to my Red Alert.
    Spinister looks EPIC! Double-jointed elbows, cool alt-mode, nice gun, and another cool looking siege figure

    Rumble looks like his head doesn\'t turn.
    That is going to be a bit odd in \"armor\" mode.

    Ehh yeah not arguing with you on the free money, but it’s such a pain to get exclusives if you live outside North America. I’d rather they weren’t is all.

    Lio Convoy is going to be hard to resist. Despite all the great toys the last few years I've actually been spending less so this toy might change my mind.

    Every time I see new pictures of Lio Convoy I get more excited! Truly cannot wait for that release.

    That's fair.....but only so much room for traditional releases without over saturating the market. PLus repaints are generally tough to sell and this way they get a premium price for em. 2 birds, 1 stone

    Ratbat looks out of this world good. Frenzy looks bush league bad. They both make me feel great though. :D

    That’s also a fair point, however I’ve noticed that repaints generally will sell if it’s the right character or a clone like a seeker. It’s just depends
