    I prefer the smaller CV Shockwave to Seige Shockwave. The little guy has personality and QC wise, is one of the line's best figures.

    I wish every figure was in vehicle scale to G1 Prowl.

    It makes things more interesting when the Seekers and individual Constructicons tower over the Autobot cars in robot mode and the original Decepticons don't seem so outnumbered.

    Red eyes = bad and blue eyes = good is stupid. That's what the big purple and red badges is for. Shockwave, Soundwave, and Optimus always look their best with yellow. Gimme the orange and green and purple eyes, I miss the diverse eye colors.

    Flaw? Singular? I actually love the toy...

    Another thing I like, the plastic/cardboard/paper Wendy's...things. (I won't actually call them toys)...Paperweights? I've got Windblade (caregiver?) & Megatron (Bumblebee's function is listed as..."hero of the people'' on the bag they came in).

    Though, I wish SOMEBODY would make proper limbs for them. third party or 3d printed on shapeways/elsewhere...They're okay now, but with better arms+legs, I'd love them...

    That sounds like overkill. ~$30-50 add-on for a cheap fast-food freebie?

    Big agreement here. Optimus looks super sharp with yellow eyes and I honestly prefer it over blue for most of his designs

    Because you can actually see his eyes in contrast to his helmet. Hell, red eyes on primal pop beautifully.

    Triple changers recently are poorly engineered for their classes. I would understand if they're Deluxes but.... nvm.

    The thing is, apart from Skyfire/Jetfire, all those are substitute names from years later due to the copyright being in use. Fireflight, Slag, etc aren't "cartoon names" - they're the actual, original names of the toy/character. It isn't the same situation at all.

    Sunbow Skyfire OTOH, is so different from the Jetfire toy that I consider them separate characters.

    And it was decades later in the other cases. Completely different situation than Jet/Skyfire.

    Technically speaking, Skyfire is also a copyright-based name. They couldn't use his design in the cartoon without modifying the design slightly and changing his name.

    Yeah, the ER one, they went with the blue eyes and I can't see them in the photos.
