Christmas SCORPION dragon, no less.

Looks alright, better than Lazerback. Still not sold on this line at all. The spiky vehicles are growing on me but I'm not picking them up if they're just new versions of the same figures I already have. So far it's just seeming like a good time for me to bow out of the collecting game for awhile and recoup my finances.

Yeah, I hate it when you can't actually look at a toy and visibly TELL it's a female. The proportions need to match up.

That said, I generally hate the head-cowl look on a Transformer anyway. (Makes me think of the wolf and dog Beast Wars era.) It's like the toy line is trying to draw in the superhero-action-figure fans with the mask, proportions, and general spandex-tights look.

I'd rather they look like robots. Bulky, mechy, squared-off, G1-ish, robots... ala the fansproject Swindle bot.

But I digress.

Given, for a younger audience they are fun dragons and monsters. Though they're not for me, I do see that they're good animal designs and pleasing (albeit very bright) color schemes. I can see a lot of Beast Wars fans getting really excited.

Clunky, over-sized hand reminiscent of RiD X-Brawn, colors barely one notch above G2 color schemes. Looks like something spewed forth after a night of Jaeger bombs and Jello Shots.
All the vehicles in this line are nothing more than colorful rip-offs from the Mad Max films. I cannot see one redeeming point in this series whatsoever. I'm sure the 4 to 9 year olds will get a kick out of it but honestly, I cannot see what everyone else finds so appealing about any of these. I try to be open minded as far as the new toys are concerned but this new line just seems like a train wreck in progress. Those who do like them though, feel free to enjoy my share of them.

Other than that, the mold actually looks decent. Not quite persuasive enough for me to snag her, but close.

I would not write off these figures by photos alone. The BH Figures so far have been great. The autobot remolds are more interesting than the originals they copy, and Lazerback is way better in hand than his photos come across. True, not all figures are for all collectors, but I am still so amazed at how much better 'bee turned out than the original pic indicated. The automatic write offs might just be missing out. But, to each their own

Sorry but this looks like it was designed and made by Fisher Price. It doesn't do much to change my opinion of 2013's lineup. Good news for those who want it, there will be at least one more available to buy.

I thought it was going to be grey too. Were the original photos/packaging that off? I like these colors two but if there's going to be a running variant/change I don't know which one to get.

I think these colours suit the body type better than Ser-Ket, but his character sounds alot cooler, and to whoever is saying she doesn't look feminine- TFA Strika is female but she's as bulky as they come XD

1. If it was done correctly.And now that i look at her more, i dont think the colors could look better on the figure, meaning i think the choice of colors is a fail to begin with, and no, i dont hate the scheme.
2. I dont need boobs or high heels, it would just be a little bit more consistent if she looked more like a female.
3. Im not a fan of those either. My problems with her are her lack of wing mobility and what i fear is a lack of a neck or head joint. If the head can move up and down, i'll be fine.
4. .....

There are apparently two Predacon symbols this time around. Hopefully, we'll see what comes out of this, eventually.

If anything, they will be the weapons they wield here in America that transform in either animalistic forms similar to the Decepticons' Arms Microns or humanoid forms.
