Axalon's pretty decent. Makes a half decent Pretender Waverider stand-in

I quite like how Axalon looks. I'd probably get him if he wasn't too hard to come by. I never did get a chance to get Energon Sharkticon, and he does looks quite nice.

Unicron is kind of cool. The rest are easy passes.

I'm digging Axalon and I may pick up a couple of the Botcon Sharkticons. I remember picking up this Unicron mold when first released. Like many other TF's I soon lost interest and parted ways with it. I'm definitely passing on Unicron and the rest. :VEHI:

Axalon looks tight, the others are a bit iffy.

If these all weren't $50 each, I'd buy every single one of them. But since they are all so atrociously expensive, I'm only getting Axalon. Mainly because he's the only one who's any different from any of the other previous releases of it's mold. That and back when I used to play HMW, back before all the resets, I had a character called Axalon, who was the Axalon brought to life. So I'm curious to see if that's what this figure is. If he's like the Animated Omega Supreme of Beast Wars.

I love the colors scheme for Beast Megatron so much more than the Hasbro release. Not enough to pick him up though...

I don't think I can properly express how much I want that particular mold of BW Megatron.

However, I can't justify spending $50 on him alone.

I don't see it. Waverider was completely black with grey accent pieces. That and neither mode resembles him at all IMO. I'd like a decent Waverider homage but this isn't it. I'm passing on all of these but Axalon and I'll probably end up passing on him too. I got what I want so badly from this mold at Botcon 2010. This just looks like something we'd find in Big Lots. He just isn't nice enough to justify his cost. I'd pay US retail for it but at $50? That's a tough pill to swallow for a so-so mold. I'd say the same for each of these.

1- Calling this Cybertron deluxe Unicron mold the ARK is a bit weird & equally WRONG. IMHO,With the united $50 price tage,might as well try to track down the year 2005 deluxe unicron mold on ebay for leaps & bound less money.

2-Axalon,calling a mold that was originally designed after the MTMTE Nemesis the Axalon is another weird/wrong. Personally in alt mode,this is the ugliest color scheme this mold has received. the bot mode is decently color.

3- United optimus Primal. I dis-like this mold. I bought it in 2005 & returned for a full refund. the colors on this united toy,don't look that different than the 10th anniversary beastwarts 2005 release. I think they should have colored this toy in either 1986 terrorcon blots colors or 1987 apeface's colors.

4-Megatron looks the most decent colored of the lot. however putting the 1996 mergatron colors on this mold just seems wrong. I always viewed this mold as a TM1 design

Hopefully they took the time to replace the Decepticon emblem of the Energon port of Axalon with an Autobot one.

Do we know if Hasbro is planning to release these (in the US)?

I'll buy all four, even Barneytron. Gotta love the surfing ape. 8)

As good as the repaint looks, whats the purpose of Axalon ??? Why have Unicron as a regular size robot now when we have the big one ??? Why do we now have "Thrilla Gorilla" ???

Primal: "Hello toy Ladies, is your toy me? No. Can he be me? Yes. If you spend a hunk of change for a mold that is rather okay, your toy can look like me. Look down. Look back up again, now I'm on a Surfboard."

Axalon and Unicron look good! I wish I could have gotten the Unicron Mold when it came out...

I would like to see a G1 Snaptrap repaint/remold of the Unicron mold.... that or an Eldar Megatron.

Of that series, I'll only take Megs, and possibly Primal since I don't have him. Combined with the previous wave's Rodimus and Thunder Megatron it's meager pickings.

The Optimus Primal and Megatron is not new, in fact those are the exact same colors used for the Target 10th Anniversary versions of Cybertron Optimus Primal and Beast Megatron back in 2006/2007. I have both versions of Prime, passed on Megs.

Actually, the Megatron has a darker shade of purple.
