This is an awesome first step for this new line. Pictures don't do the figures justice. Articulation is top notch and transformation is really spot on. Get some of these figures as soon as you can!

I feel like the regular head for starscream is becoming more rare than the factory error head. :APPLAUSE:

Weapon: Dark Saber Sword
The reviewer who reviewed Blitzwing, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Megatron also got a hold of Starscream and Ironhide as well (even pointed it out on the first thread). I honestly hope the deco error on the head isn't common. :-s

Like I said, I'd be much more interested in getting a Skywarp than Starscream.

These just look like crap. I'd rather have Gobots.

...Does anyone else actually like the two-tone look of the head? Not as Starscream so much, but it would make a great generic two-tone Seeker with some more grey and black parts swapped for the red and blue.

I really don't like these things, the gappy, skeletal design makes them look like the robo flesh has rotted away. I like the idea of being able to build your own bot but why the cheap and nasty look?

Looking at the video I'm not sure the legs are transformed correctly, there are pegs on the shin parts that look like they should tuck up under and into the holes at the sides of the canopy piece, pulling the legs further into the main body. I could be wrong though.

Have you ever seen a Bionicle or Hero Factory set? ;) They're supposed to look somewhat skeletal, and they have pegholes and clips all over them so that you can customize them; don't forget that Bionicle/Hero Factory parts are still Legos, and Construct-Bots are created with that ideal in mind.

Looking at a few other videos the figures all transform the same basic way. The add on parts give them their unique looks.
