    Soundwave is kinda cute, I guess, but you gotta completely drop the ball for him not to be.

    Thus, these are like stabby Cubeecraft that just made their way up from the Uncanny Valley. And, I’d suggest they go back to that valley and demand justice from whoever beat them with the “ugly stick.”

    Especially, I can’t find the value in this when Flame Toys are releasing their own SD/Chibi figures under their Deformers model kit line. I am still interested in getting FT’s Soundwave Kit, and this doesn’t dissuade me from that or seem like a worthwhile addition on top of it.

    Shockwave looks okay I'm not feeling how it alters the heads on everyone else.

    Wow, those are ugly. Never been a huge fan of Bumblebee's evergreen design (not every new version needs to look like the movie BB), but those heads are a crime.

    I built their Normandy from Mass Effect once. It’s hard to get everything to piece together without either breaking the tiny pieces or bending the metal beyond repair. Don’t think I’ll be bothering with any of their stuff, TF or not, any time soon.

    Metal Earth... Man. I built their G1 Optimus Prime model a while back. Took about an entire day’s worth of work. The finished product was cool though.

    But these are... rather hideous.

    Is Hasbro planning on releasing a Minecraft or Roblox clone? I feel like this sort of an aesthetic might translate well to such a thing. Otherwise I'm just really not sure what market these things are targeting.

    These don’t look great.  Why can’t we get a second wave of their earlier models?
