    These things have always been sooo ugly. I dunno who buys them, even. I got a few of the Battle Beasts but they were disappointing.

    The Battle Beasts were disappointing, however I can get behind these.

    That said the lower half of Blaster is pretty bad.

    I've got somewhere between 1-2 thousand of them. Suffice it to say, I am the market demographic for these. But I just can't get behind the Transformer ones.

    Now, the GI Joe mates? I am completely down for all of those.

    I have hundreds, maybe thousands of minimates.  I have always loved their style and usually loads of cool accessories.  These guys are no different.  It is definitly a style to get used to.  However, espeically with Marvel, it is great to get so collectible and well done figures at so small and so cheap.  I feel the same for these.  I got the first box, and these are amazing.  It will be one of the few non-transforming Transformers I will collect.

    Yeah, not for me. They've always struck me as knock off minifigs and I'm not even a fan of minifigs.

    They are far from the best mini-figs of these guys, but one of my head cannons is the Cons keep Tripticon entertained with headmaster sized dolls.

    I kept waffling on the first set, but I am glad I picked them up. I like the metallic paint/ dark paint on the first set and hope these are similar in hand. They live on my desk at work and take up a lot less space than something like Pops or other vinyl toys.

    The design on Blaster and Soundwave certainly looks like it would hinder the legs, especially Blaster.
    I have G.I.Joe set on order, but I like characters choices better for the Transformers.
