Am I the only one who thinks this version better is than his Voyager counterpart?

Well, I dunno, the alt mode still looks off. However, while I'm still not a fan of the new head, this one looks much better than the other one. It looks more like a "normal" head with a gold re-breather and a flight helmet than a bug face with mandibles.

I am assuming that all the characters in the movie can just change their limbs at will? Seems a bit strange when they had to not use "boxy designs" because they weren't "realistic" enough. God these hollywood assholes are full of hypocrisies. Oh well.

I like both versions, it's cool that this one has a sword ala Armada and Energon.

So is this thing like a press button transformation? or is it normal.

Great gallery!

Actual when you think about it the ability to morph the hands into weapons fits perfectly with the way these things already transform. And I for one have to agree that true G1 style bots would have looked goofy as hell in a live action movie. The designs in the cartoon and comics really did have that guy in a robot suit look. These Transformers look like alien robots. They look like something people would be afraid of.

im guessing the point of fast action battlers is that they have a quick attack gimmick(makes sense)

As I said before, I like this better than the big 'Screamer. He looks really evil, and the plane kibble is much better, like an old school TF. I'll definately be getting this.

I wondered what on earth Thunderbirds had to do with the movie :P
seriously though this one looks better than the full size one (don't get me wrong they are both rubbish) but doen't hasbro know that only Hookers aand Cross dressers wear gold lipstick...poor Screamer

Ok, this might just be me but from that weird angle in the first few shots the head looks like chewbakka...

Well, I'm just happy that I now know what they mean by Fast Action. It's the weapon gimmick, not the actual transformation.

I'm not a fan of this design, but he does have good weapons, so thats something.

Reminds me a lot of the bad compromises they had to make with the origanal movie toys cause they designed the charecter before the toy.

Hasbro, do you ever learn?
