The more I look, the more I want them. And the more the little voice in my head says "Make up your mind already!".

Mother of God.... *puts on anti-RIRFIB flak jacket and helmet*

Not sure about these guys. The general idea is cool - I've always wanted to see a non-cassette minion - but these ain't particularly complex or clever. That Ratbat looks extra clunky with its naff disc-wings and tiny head. :-(

Ratbat has a great head sculpt. I think the functionality makes everything about this a compromise. Soundwave is thick chested with a wonky stick in his back, and these guys have their own proportion issues... usually to the tune of being too thick... also partly to contain the spring mechanisms, etc.

BUT I think with them in hand, we may all change our tune a bit because of the playability, launching, auto-transformation. (?)

Guessing we may walk away from the entire FOC line feeling like it was a bit of a compromise. Heh.

Love the bios.

Not sure if I'm buying these guys, but it's cool they not only did a faithful update to the original toy's gimmick but they also did much more than just Laserbeak. While there's technically only ~3 molds, we've gotten Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Sunder, Ratbat, Rumble, Frenzy, Rewind, Eject, Ravage, Ramhorn, and Steeljaw all within a short period.

From High Councilor to disk-bat. Poor Ratbat. :P

I plan to just grab Ravage and Rumble, I'm not particularity impressed with Ratbat, and I don't feel compelled to pick up Frenzy.

So we're confirmed to get ALL these with FOC? If so, that's cool news. Minions are a good thing. Is this the mold breakdown? Any new heads besides Ratbat?

1. Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Sunder, Ratbat,
2. Rumble, Frenzy, Rewind, Eject
3. Ravage, Ramhorn, Steeljaw

Almost:

1) Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Sundor (from Sun and Condor) and the retool Ratbat
2) Rumble, Frenzy and the retools Eject and Rewind
3) Ravage and possibly Steeljaw
4) Ramhorn

Wow. That's a staggering list. (And sorry about the typo.)

They did a great job finding in a way to shoehorn in a LOT of (often rarely-used) characters for the FOC line. The retool with Blaster really is nicely executed, too. I hope they can keep up this kind of well-planned thinking.

As is, our "Classics"/WFC/FOC shelves will be overflowing... and every Decepticon is going to have a bird on his shoulder. ;-)

While I wish Ratbat was a darker purple, I'm pretty satisfied with him, and that mold in general. The Frenzy and Rumble mold is adequate.

Ravage, however, looks like a coffee table with legs and a head. :SICK:

While spelling it Sundor for the reason you stated above makes sense- that's what the original toy was called/spelled- I thought I'd seen in all the official announcements and listings that his toy was spelled Sunder. I could be wrong, though.

these look pretty decent. if they're cheap enough I'll have them all. Loving the squareness of the heads on the Frumble twins.

I've checked the galleries of the SDCC 2012 event when the toys were on display, but Blaster's buddies were nowhere to be seen. Steeljaw is indeed a retool of Ravage however.

"Sunder" with an "e" was officially used only once: in the Allspark Almanac II. Aside from that... Hey Hasbro, Sun + Condor = Sundor. Simple as that. Or maybe you'll understand this:

サンドル (sandoru) = Sundor

But:

Sunder = サンダー (sandaa) = Thunder :lol:

Sorry about that, I just hate it when a pun is needlessly lost in translation. >:oP

Well, technically, it only makes the Animated character named "Sunder" while the Kiss Players and Aligned characters get the name "Sundor". ;)

Kinda glad these are turning out better than I thought. I originally believed they'd all be as bad as Ratbat. Red and Blue are pretty bleh but Laserbeak and Ravage are particularly nice.

The minions are looking pretty good! For what they are anyway. I hope they're reasonably-priced, especially since I only want Ravage and Frenzy.

Sooo... why won't Hasbro release Breakdown, again? >:oP
