    the pictures on the back of the box make them look way better than they actually are.

    Such wasted potential not giving BB his Action Master Helipack. Could have done like Flame Toys and given him a sledgehammer a la TLK BB. I think he's the RED figure with the least accesories.

    Bumblebee has slightly too small eyes, and they're too dark. Also, whats the deal with his loose chest piece?

    Bumblebee looks pretty decent, and I\'d probably get him if I didn\'t already have enough G1 style Bees
    As soft as he looks, I\'ll probably grab Starscream just because I that he comes with his crown and cape. Plus, I really want to pose him like that next to the Cobra Commander I have on my shelf.

    The dry brushing and head mold look nice on BB's box

    But on the toy itself? Not so much. Looks like a mcdonald's toy with poop smeared on it.

    Sorry-not sorry

    I thought R.E.D. Starscream was supposed to include a Dr. Archeville figure and an exponential generator accessory. ;)

    Starscream looks cool but that head sculpt doesn't look that great honestly. I'd rather just wait for a new Revoltech Starscream with coronation add ons.

    Might be a stupid question, but i can never really tell from any reviews of these figures, but is the plastic Marvel legends quality? Or is it just like a cheap playskool toy kind of plastic?

    These suck so bad. I almost bought Soundwave and ended up leaving him at the checkout.

    Netflix Bumblebee is still being sold on other sites actually. So I wouldn't say people have missed out just yet. It's actually up for preorder on nin-nin-game.com

    I have prime and megs. I had no interest in these things but when I saw them in the store I couldn’t help myself.

    I’m so weak.

    I wanted to like this line and for it to succeed because I would have liked to see some characters in the lineup that never really had an alt mode like G1 Alpha Trion and Autobot X. But then I saw the pics of the actual figures and Emgo's reviews online. The quality looks almost KO-ish with the all the scratches and paint blemishes on the figures themselves and even some of the plastic for the weapons are starting to droop, especially looking at Soundwave's. For $20 a pop, I really hope Hasbro improves the quality for Prime Arcee and BW Cheetor.

    This line is basically Hero Mashers all over again. And remember how that ended?... yeah.

    Why do they have to waste slots on characters that already have pretty good Earthrise figures?
