To me Swerve was always that poor sod who always ended up as a bright red repaint of some other mold for the sake of just having another repaint, and at first that's all I could think about wen I saw Kup was getting that treatment. Then I started reading MTMTE, and his character grew on me, but I kept looking back at the toy with the same feeling on my mind as before. In the end I picked him up... and my feeling still hasn't changed. Yeah, he's still a more substantial piece of plastic than any of the other deluxes made this year, but as far as I can tell I just picked up a red Kup with a weird noggin and I still feel empty...
Cliffjumper... surprised me. I thought I'd be on the fence about which shelf to display something that aesthetically polarizing, but I've found he doesn't look that off on my neo-g1 shelf as I thought he would, especially in place of WFC Cliff.
Megatron... well I'm not big on the idea of using the Bludgeon mold since he has no cannons in bot mode, and quite frankly I thought his face sculpt was ridiculous. In the end I grabbed him anyway since he's both another Megatron to put on my shelf, and a G2 homage... which reminds me, I forgot to grab a Powerdive
Everything else was a pass. I love RTS Jazz's mold but hate Wheelie, already have Defender as my Springer, Hot Spot as a non-combiner torso is a no-no and that face is too sinister looking for a Protectobot leader, I don't collect legends, and none of the scouts really grabbed me.
