They look great, but like all Revoltechs in my opinion, they're a pass. No transform no point.

MUST HAVE! Will be getting these when they come out. On the other hand there’s a bunch of other revoltechs I might get instead… oh so much and so little cash. :-(

This is sooooo 2002.

Does anyone else find it kind of ironic that we're just now getting DW-based things? I guess that's how legal red-tape works. It'd be better if they tried making IDW based things.

Haha, I really enjoy the Starscream one. If I had the money to spare I would totally buy him, but that is what happens when you have two conventions and two European trips to plan for. :/

Despite the lack of transformation abilities they are fun to play with. At least my Optimus figure is. Too bad that it's hard to remove the hands and such. Optimus and I found that out the hard way. (Can feel the figure glaring.)

If they're going to include the stands and some accessories, that covers the two main downsides I found to Revoltech Megatron. Quite like the look of both of these, although Hot Rod will often be featuring in displays where Megatron has ripped his head off. :D

Hell, even Starscream looks killer and, frankly, I'm so sick of G1 Starscream I could shit blood!

These look great. I've already pre-ordered them on BBTS. Convoy & Megatron are just awesome. It's true that they don't transform, but the poses you can get thme in are really cool. Right now, it looks like Convoy & Megs are having a stand-off.

OK, I haven't paid much attention to the Revoltechs until now, those guys look awesome! Are they coming to the US? Expected prices? Is the G1 Prime version this cool looking? Thx from a (relative) newb.

Now as a HUGE Screamer fan I have to get Starscream.
Rodimus I just might buy. He looks okay.

Same here, I'm going to pass on these simply because they don't transform. And Hot Rod just plain sucks to begin with.

I like, though Im slightly confused as to why when Prime had no wheels on his person at all (seriously, why no wheels on the legs?) that Hot Rod has wheels on his shoulders when. I know the G1 toy did, but his animation model (like Prime's) didnt, and it just looks so out of place.
