Totally buying 3 of Backfire, one for robot 2 for guns for Ironhide. Love all 3 but great reviews from Peaugh. :x

I might be there with you, that looks cool! I might buy pairs of each, just to use as army-builders. I wish the human figs weren't so out of scale, as with the original HA releases. Still fun tho.

All are fairly decent. I'm diggin' on Thunderhead the most. The 'Exo-Squad' mode is also kinda reminiscent of Spike and Daniel's bot suits from the best Transformers movie of all. I like Backfire too but I'm not feeling the 'glowing gun port' feature. It looks too much like a vag. I'm just sayin... :-?

Looks like I'm the only person that hates Thunderhead then. Just rearrange the limbs to go between modes, like a triple changer from the Beast era.

Thunderhead has a messy and poorly articulated robot mode. Icepick looks quite cool so MAYBE I'll buy him.

Def buy these as I see them, they look well-done and fun too. Great price point for what you get.

Can't quite tell, can Backfire in alt mode fit in Leader Ironhide's alt mode truck bed? That would be excellent.

Thunderhead reminds me of those mech-suits from The Matrix. I could see him being an army builder.

I'm not crazy about Icepick. His weapon mode seems kinda weak. Giant chainsaw? Really?

Backfire is bought on sight, if only for his BFG mode.

Picked up Sandstorm and Backfire. Gave them mech modes:

These guys are fun! Anyone else notice that Sandstorm's partner, Admiral Whatsisface, looks a whole lot like Robert Culp, from "The Greatest American Hero" and "I Spy"?

I'm a bit behind on releases this year but I just noticed Icepick on the shelf at the local Meijer and my jaw dropped. I've been waiting for a snowmobile transformer for a long time! (not a huge collector so dunno if ones been released prior =P)

The fact that the Sgt. Chaos can hold the handle bars is even better. Hands down recent favorite transformer.
