But these don't look great and their kind of look like their made of plastic noodles.
Also a scout is 10 dollars -seriously hasbro needs to reconfigure their price points its almost as expensive to buy voyagers as it is to buy deluxes. If im paying almost 20 anyway id rather have more voyager figures.
Just like the Kre-o stuff, give them time. This is their first try with this and it's bound to be flawed. Give it a few waves, I guarantee they'll get better as they play more and discover more tricky ways to make things work.
And those prices are basically in-line with the Lego sets, which are FAR larger than even RTS Windcharger (often hailed as Mr. Oversized Scout). For reference, the Lego sets which I'm guessing would be the same size are $8-9, $12-13, and $20-ish. Obviously you're paying for the engineering those extra couple bucks for the fact that these are engineered to transform, and I think they're pretty cool for it.
