    They're actually exceptionally high quality in that you can use them as bludgeoning devices and they won't break.

    I've only ever bought one as a curiosity - nuRiD Prime - and, as stupidly lanky as he is and more or less is made up of that so hated three-sided single piece parts with an entirely exposed back...he makes one of the best looking vehicle modes for RiD Prime out of the entire line with the trailer actually looking like a trailer. He's also a fun four step transformation to fiddle with idly.

    Got these the other day, and well, the head sculpts are nice, and then you turn them around...Completely hollow. I'm not one to leave things factory sealed, but these look great in package (well, the head sculpts), just don't open them.

    I find them more fun than most Cyberverse toys... Prime and Megatron have pretty cool transformations for what they are.

    Well, that's true, at least in vehicle mode. (Yes, I have all of the Titan Changers released so far except for these.) I was talking "quality" in terms of articulation, good proportions, paint, etc. But you're right, the plastic itself is generally pretty good.

    I would be down for a big ol' Grimlock. I have the voyager and he's pretty cool for what he is.

    I found these last week. I picked up Megs because I've become a MegaTANK supporter and went ahead and picked up OP as well.

    These are also showing up at Family Dollar stores. Little more expensive ($12) than Dollar General ($10), but at least they're available at another venue for those who are looking for them.

    I think they are more like disaster refugee camps. Or at two of those here are.

    I saw these at my local Dollar General. I thought that these might be good to pick up for Toys for Tots but if they are not very good quality, I might go for the mid size Evergreen figures (ironic that the mid-size class is now $12 and these big guys are $10) or something else.
