Strange that the Triplechangers have to partsform in order to transform. Judging by the initial reveals back at Toy Fair, one would think no partsforming was required. Perhaps there's a loophole.
Not liking the heads of both Optimus and Megatron. Especially Megatron, with his grimace that could rival even that of Beast Wars II Galvatron.
Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised about these. I'll probably nab one or two of the smaller packs, Starscream maybe. I'd be much more interested in custom sets, where you can build your very own Transformer character instead of iconic characters.

As the reviewer points out, Starscream has a deco error(s) on his head: only a third of it is painted, and the eyes are blue. Hopefully this will be rectified in future cases.
I'd be more interested in picking up a Skywarp (if they decide to make him), Breakdown (if he's primarily white and not an SUV. If he is an SUV, I can live with it), and other future sets they decide to pump out for use in creating my fanfic characters.

...Hopefully, with a correctly painted head.

Sorry for the long delay in response. I've been sleep-deprived here lately.
It appears that the Construct-Bots are indeed compatible with 5mm accessories.
