The Ninja mold is really cool and stands out from the warrior mold.
I... don't know what the birds are supposed to turn into. And who are they? Garboil and Sundor?
Kingbat's mold is... interesting. With his shoulders by his feet, he looks like he stilt walks on the wingtips. Still, turning into a trident is cool and you get a sword for your trouble. I'll get him, but I'm NOT seeing him as Ratbat.
It's too soon to say I'm hesitant about them trying other animals (you never know how awesome something might be in-hand), but I am very curious.

One of the things I liked about PE re-imagining the cassette characters as weapons was because it was functional as a toy and sensible for their mythology.
The mini-cassette design was fine and good, but it made them stand apart from the established play pattern of everyone else turning into vehicles. For lack of a better term, they break the 4th wall (like a certain gun). Unfortunately, the concept only really works if you happen to have a guy who becomes a mini-cassette player to take advantage their designed play value. On their own, the concept sorta falls apart (seriously, they turned into rectangles somewhere between suitcase and laptop to the other toys).
Now PE is creating their spin on one of the two guys who made cassettes work; in a line where the "cassettes" turn into guns. Right

Kingbat - I think the trident mode is fantastic, and the jet mode is great, but the bat mode doesn't work for me - and if it's meant to be Ratbat then that's the most important mode. Think I'll be passing for now.
The Laserbeak mould looks interesting, bird-mode looks great - but what is that alt mode meant to be? A power pack? Regardless I'll probably pick up Laserbeak & Buzzsaw.
I was quite impressed with Frenzy & Rumble. Good little figures with great detailing and brilliant paint apps.

No your not! He's the first name that came into my head looking at him.
The second was Graphy or "Gurafi" in japanese.
It looks more like squawktalk though for sure. It'd be great if it was. Instead of the usual Laserbeak or Buzzsaw.
In fact that blue one could even be Raindance in jet mode or whatever that mode we see there is.
