I dunno. I suppose there's nothing wrong with the colours and paint apps themselves, it's just that these
are the final products and I'm just not seeing something worth $120.
well, each does come with about 3 or 4 figures worth of weapons, and considering iGear charged about the price of a Deluxe for 4 guns not that long ago, I think you can take some of that into consideration.
I suppose I agree that the colours aren't 100% perfect, but Ratchet and Ironhide were never sporting the most sophisticated paint jobs. I would have liked Ratchet's arms completely white, and really, I'd have thought Ironhide should have grey rather than black on his non-red parts, but the alt modes are fantastic, the robots seem to have loads of poseability and some nice little features, like the fold out comms panels.
I'm not overly keen on most of the alternate heads. Ironhide's ones are okay. Very IDW-y, but I'd have preferred if there was only one comic head and one of the cartoon head in a more characterful expression. Stll, the basic head is plenty good, and at least everyone gets the choice. Other people might have different preferences from me. Ratchet's heads are a bit different too. Again, too much black where it should, IMO be grey. I really don't like the alternate white head. I think it's really horrible. Like, FOC/Energon Optimus Prime horrible.
But...they gave us Comic-Ratchet's head! So all is almost forgiven. I will be popping that on right away if I get this guy, so he can pretty much make 83% of the rest of the Autobots irrelevant in his awesomeness.
