    Laserbeak is back as a part of the Titans Return line, and he is a fun, inoffensive release with some nice details - altogether the better version of the mold than Buzzsaw, though there are still some faults with the mold.

    Nice photos!

    I really like this mold, my favorite Legends figure so far in Titans Return.

    that group shot of Laserbeak's is particularly damning, even the gosh-awful data disk version looks more like the character then this absurd mold. (which, admittedly, has a decent head sculpt)

    I feel like if they hadn't dictated the Tablet/phone molds being triple changers (especially given how nonsensical their 'vehicle' mode is ~ is it a skateboard or a forklift? both???) they probably could have had the Condor Bros. transform sideways instead of lengthwise and come up with something significantly more satisfying.

    I like the mold a lot even though it is clunky in some areas, will never turn it into that load lifter vehicle looking thing. That being said, I just put on the repo labels for both laserbeak and buzzsaw and now they are simply amazing. I want all my minions to have their cassette graphics, no idea why they did it for rewind but not rumble.

    If neither Hasbro or Takara make the orange Blaster version, I'm going to have to pick one of these up and customise it. Black parts work better with orange than grey so its a good base, plus undercoat means none of the colour will shine through.

    Also, still waiting on an Eject, a Rosanna, a Ramhorn and that lion dude.

    Oh I'd love for Hasbro to release this mold as Sunder! Heck I'd even take the blue Garboil, this is a really fun mold that I'd buy plenty of times more.

    Haven't gotten a single one yet, as I don't want a Soundwave to begin with. Holding out for Sunder.

    I have Buzzsaw, as he is a personal favorite character of mine, and I for one really like him. Can't wait to add Laserbeak to the ranks with him! I have him (along with Ravage and Rumble) sitting in my Pile Of Loot waiting to be shipped.

    I still think this mold could be modified to make Ratbat (change where the pull out wings are connected, new head) and Squawktalk, but I echo Lord Dcast in that I want to see Eject, Ramhorn, and Steeljaw. I suspect that Stripes/Ravage is destined to become Steeljaw, since the G1 version had the wing-y bits on his back like the current mold has.

    Have him and Buzzsaw, fun figures despite technically being crap.
