The remolds of older figures and some of the new ones such as Bulkhead and Starscream, I'll give you. However, new molds such as Ripclaw (I can't even begin to tell you how nice she is.) Smokescreen and Shockwave do not suffer. The "armor" is rubbery and completely removable. You don't even need them to have a complete figure. I don't understand why so many people seem to be missing the fact that these pieces are not permanent and allow them to sway their decision to buy. I just don't get it. At all. The figures underneath the gimmick pieces are VERY nice. Very.
As for the spikes on his head, which people seem to be confused by as well... That's how his head is designed in the show.... *smh*

But they don't all have it going on. An accessory that's removable and doesn't enhance or hinder the figure in any way shouldn't be the deciding factor to sway one away from buying these.
Passing up molds such as Predaking, Smokescreen, Ripclaw (her especially), is just ridiculous. These are great figures.
