Those SG Junkions are soooooo sexy... :x

Soundwave doesn't look as bad as the promo pics made him out to be. His head isn't nearly as long. Definitely going to get him down the line. Straxus too.

I'm really digging the Insecticon themed Junkions =P~

I also really like Kick-Over, but who in the world is he even supposed to be?

Kick-Off on TFWiki. Ironically enough, his motto was "Alt-modes is for wimps", since he started life as an Action Master :lol:

*reads the bios on the SG Junkions*

...

So they are akin to the Strogg of Quake and the Borg of Star Trek? Creepy, but cool. Does that mean I want them? You bet it does. ;)

Yikes. I'm sorry, I can't find anything appealing about these guys. Some of the ugliest color schemes I've seen in a while. So much...purple.

Several figures in there belong in my wish list. Really good year to go to Botcon I think. Gigatron (Overlord) is only half there in my opinion. They should have done a mod to the tank mold to accomodate a jetfighter link-up like a duocon.

I think I'll only get one of those Junkions/Insecticons namely the Scrapheap repaint. Soundwave does look much better than in previous pics and SG G2 Prime, Kickoff and Treadshot are ones I will pick up. But that head on Overlord...that head...that freakin' head just seems goofy lookin' to me. 8-} :VEHI:

I want Soundwave and Kick, but thats about it.

Who is going to be the first to post pics of Soundwave with the headband on?!

Meh, lots of em are too G2 looking. Not my taste. Except for Kick Off or whatever his name is, might search for him on eBay when I have some extra money, and after I get DOTM deluxe Que and Soundwave.

awww. Spinister! :( I like him. Metalhawk still looks good and that Jazz mold works in every colour I've seen it in. Kick-Off in particular is a nice surprise.

Ducktopunch still isn't doing it for me, and Soundwave only looks okay. Tracks might have been fine without the purple, maybe black or blue somewhere instead and he wouldn't look quite so Magneto. Not really loving the G2 Prime redecos either. Shattered Glass Prime again? and SG Magnus...well he looks creepy as hell with that head, but the colours aren't working that well with the sculpt. Honestly, the proper Optimus Prime colours didn't work that great on that mold until it got a Battle Tanker upgrade anyway, so maybe these 2 would look fine with a bit of bulk. The Junkions looks okay, but I'd rather a 3 pack of them in G1 Junkion colours myself. Preferably as a retail or online exclusive.

Reading the tech specs, it seems that SG Ultra Magnus had his face ripped off by Prime way back when, then managed to duplicate Prime's current Laser Prime body. When you think about it, if UM went through all the trouble of building a totally new body for himself fashioned after Op's new body, why didn't he fix his face? Does he like looking like the Grim Reaper or something?

Kick-Over means nothing to me as a character, but I think it looks sweet. Too bad I'll never own one.

A not bad looking bunch of figures. Nothing I'm particularly interested in, but nice all the same. Some of those new head sculpts are a tad naff though.

So are they offering a separately sold headband for Soundwave as they mentioned a while back, or was that idea scrapped?

Cool. I wonder if they made enough for every SG Soundwave figure?

I'll bet they didn't.

Won't take much for a third party company to produce them at $10 a pop.

Heaven forbid people just grab a piece of green wool and tie it around his head.

i really do like Spinister quite a bit. Even as much as to place a bid for one on ebay. Not a big bid though. I don't like it that much.

Ok, this harkens back to my original idea. you listening guys?
GREEN TWIST TIES!!!
They are easy to get, are extremely posable, and work like a charm on certain headsculpts!

They do. In fact, the alternate head of RtS Jazz was designed after Kick-Off.
