    The head is so ugly! Why can't fembots have a bit of sex appeal? :sly:

    I like it. Well, ten year old me likes it. These guys definitely feel like Hasbro is reaching for the kids with these. And why not? We had our time. Now kids get to have theirs. I don't collect everything, and I don't plan on buying these, but what kid can resist monsters that change into robots and then fight each other? Shit, that was everything I wanted when I was a kid.

    Ah, so she's not grey and Dinobot-esque in colors. Not bad. Kinda Sky Shadow-esque now, though Ripclaw's a lot less creative with the transformation.

    I'd say she's so wonderfully hideous she's an instant buy, but the way the shoulder armor is done kills a lot of my enthusiasm.

    I really like those colours, nice and bright, really hoping this colour scheme is used for Rip Claw.

    This design doesn't fit the one set by the the production's art team. It's going to be interesting seeing how these mix and work.

    The previous colors looked better, IMHO.

    One of the few female Transformers in recent years that doesn't push the sexy high heels stereotype that's been stigmatized...and people are wondering why she can't have more sex appeal? I'm worried about some of you people. XD

    I think she's kinda neat. Not complicated by any means, but the dragon mode is pretty cool. Looks like an easy spur of the moment pick up for me.

    This has to be a prototype. The plastic don't look right, even ignoring the colors.

    Yeah, Starscream already has that covered! :drunk

    I'm still interested in owning a copy of the mold, but I'll most definitely be skipping Ripclaw here. Which is too bad, as she sounded like a pretty cool character, but those colors...just...yeah. Individually the colors aren't bad, but put together like this...it kind of comes across as two different decors forced together to make one big...mix of things.

    Hopefully they've got a Ser-Ket repaint in the works for a future wave.

    Despite the simplistic Transformation, I think this is really neat. The only thing I don't like is how squished the dragon body looks. The blue looks grey to me, for I have red-green colorblindness.

    ^This comment was amazing. Bravo.

    These are very strange looking toys and sadly not to my taste at all. :(

    I totally agree. The transformation wouldn't bother me if they did it once, but this is the second Predacon figure out of two (3 out of 3 if you include Twinstrike) to use it. Atleast this one is fairly different. Not a fan of the tail kibble, tho.

    Holy fuck this looks ridiculous, but possibly in a good way. Liked it much better when I thought she was darker or whatever though.

    as far as beasts... nobody knows. as far as autobots go i think there's a 50/50 chance of an armored ratchet and/or arcee.
