Is it just me, or do the WFC/FOC Autobot figures mostly suck?
I'll explain. Keep in mind here that I am strictly talking about the toys. WFC Megs and Soundwave are pretty awesome, IMHO. They really look like Cybertronian incarnations of their G1 selves. Granted, their Alt-modes are a bit weak, but I like to put Megs in "weapon platform" a.k.a. Galvatron mode, and I think it works better. Likewise, Soundwave looks pretty cool as a Cybertronian boom-box.
From FOC, Shockwave looks awesome. Likewise Bruticus. Def. figs that have great robot and alt-modes.
However, I'm extremely disappointed overall in the autobots. FOC Jazz looks pretty good, but WFC Bumblebee and Cliffjumper just do not impress me at all.
Now, on to Optimus Prime: WFC Prime had a pretty good 'bot mode, but his alt-mode was less than stellar. Moving on to FOC, Prime's alt-mode looks cooler, but his 'bot mode is terrible!
Are Decepticons just better suited to alien alt-modes?
I just want to say that I hope this isn't coming across as whiny. I'm super pumped about just about everything involving WFC and FOC, including the toys, but I find it a touch lame that they Autobot figures can't measure up to the 'cons, and I wanted to know if anyone else felt the same, or if anyone could convince me otherwise.
