    I love the look of Scorponok, he reminds me of TM2 Scourge! I loved the design of that toy.

    I don't like Scorponok at all, but he's a main line Decepticon so he'll be bought regardless. I'm also glad to finally see a new Windblade so I can finally sell my TakTom Legends version.

    This, except I have the Hasbro Generations version. I'm glad to see a new version that looks like it might be more stable and easier to stand up than the one I have. I might wait and see if Takara releases it with more apps, but I will gladly get it to replace Gen. Windblade even if it might not match up style wise with my other Generations figures.

    I like Windblade's design overall as her feet look better and the alt mode is cleaner. I am however disappointed in the lack of wrists; for sword wielding figures it's just an absolute must and that's one thing Generations Windblade got right.

    I'll probably snag me a Scorponok 'cause he looks pretty unique and interesting.

    Same here.

    I hope they decide to do more of the Battle-packs as well. We need at least one Decepticon Commander fig (Megatronus would be perfect).

    Wow! A very well done, Windblade! The only figure I will buy from this line.

    Looks like the Generations mold got a ton of much needed remolding and upgrades.

    I think this figure still has wrists. This looks like a remold of the generations one, and this version is all meched out! If I'm right the same articulation should all be there, including the wrists. Hell, they even maintained her hair fan gimmick.

    Windblade is screaming for paint.

    Okay, thank god they got Windblade's mould right this time. The paint is terrible, but I can live with that. If Takara or Reprolabels doesn't give me a fix I'll just do it myself.

    The only one I was mildly interested in here was Windblade and she seems... okay?

    I'm pretty sure she has better stability this time but I don't like how the rest of the design makes her look less stylish. I think I will be keeping my Legends version.

    About Scorponok, I'm pretty sure that some people will disagree with me but I think he could be used for the Beast Wars character of the same name (and if not him, maybe Quickstrike).

    Super excited over Windblade. I certainly hope this version locks into both modes securely. It would be nice knowing my daughter can play with her for longer than ten seconds before she falls into a gangly mess of limbs and parts.

    Windblade looks great! I'd like more paint, sure, but the mold is nice.
    And Scorponok looks pretty sweet. Love how the claws become shoulder pylons. Very cool.

    I was just eyeing the Windblade new mold down and I.don't think this is a remold at all of the generations figure. It almost looks like a rem old of first edition Starscream mold when you look at her backside in jet mode. Plus there are rotatating vtols can u guys see those? I read many different threads in the last 5 hours (to a full) and no.one else noticed that. Those certainly.Aren't on my windblade at all. But I do see similaritys in the old mold I will get out my Starscream to see and get back to yall
