They look nice, will probably only get hound if I like the swindle mold. I anticipate that I will, and hound does pull the mold off well; I'd go so far as to say that this is what a 'classics' re-imagining of hound should look like - i.e. one that isn't slavishly g1 accurate - I actually like the look of him better than any g1 styled version of him.

I'm kinda bummed with that 'Jack. I'll take my MP-20, thanks. (Yeah, I know that's kind of a mean comparison ;) ) Though, that smokescreen tempts me... :-?

I mean it's nice and all, what with the bland face and what not, I was 1000% more interested with the ravage figure he came with >:oP

I dunno, I don't like most of the G1 autobots, they were bland, or recolors, or bland recolors of bland characters with bland figures. Just the same design (hood chest, trunk for feet, etc.) pounded out over and over again. Say what you will, but at least beast wars had interesting designs that really stood out once it hit it's stride.

Well that's why I never bought most of the classics/universe stuff >:oP

Dinobot would be pretty hard to get super screen accurate, he was pretty massive in bot mode and the beast mode was really lithe. It could be possible if they re-engineered the bw figure.

I truly hope there are people out there that like these new Autobot figures more than the Classics, Universe, Generations, & RtS versions. Especially if they missed out before.

I'm not going to say these CW updates suck.
If you like them, cool.

But my personal opinion is that these are not as good as what's been offered before.
I'm not interested in talking about how short these fall from previous releases.
The headsculpts are spot-on... Imo really impressive.
But because they've been made with the ability to combine, other things were sacrificed.

Please believe this isn't me mindlessly defending my collection...
I just know it's a far stretch to say that this new Smokescreen is better than the Henkei "Classics" version.
Or even the Hound figures that have been compared already.

People can call the older versions bland...
I call them legitimately sound, updated G1 representations.

Thanks, mooncake! Glad to finally be here.

Yeah, honestly? I agree about Hound. A non-g1 Hound spikes my interest. I'll skip Wheeljack and Trailbreaker. Unnecessary remolds/combiner limbs. And Primus knows I won't have enough of those by the time Bruticus and Victorion come out. :BANG_HEAD:

I'm not sure if it's just the lighting, but I really don't like that Smokescreen.
Wheeljack is probably the best of the bunch with his retooling, just needs a little black paint on those fake chest windows. Hound is a close second, but I'm not sure he'll replace my Generations version.

I think it's awesome that 10 year olds who don't even know "Classics" exists, get to have really cool looking and fun versions of these classic characters.
I'm happy to have multiple versions of these classic characters. Especially if they combine.

Combiner Wars Wheeljack and Hound look amazing. They're not superior to their previous Classics releases, but they look damn good for retools/repaints. It's nice that Trailbreaker gets his gun hand, but it should have been on his left hand, not his right. Smokescreen looks a little off to me. I think Prowl with his color layout pulls off that mold a lot better. Still, I agree with Cobotron, these are great entry level G1 offerings for young kids graduating from the likes of Rescue Bots and Robots in Disguise 2015. I'm thinking X-mas presents for my nephew with some of these. :)

So thinking about these four ark bots, got me to thinking about who's left.
Now I'm just shootin' the moon here, but I would love to see...

Voyager Blaster as torso, with his street smart, break dancing, city bot team of - Bluestreak, Hoist, Sideswipe, and Jazz. :P

I think the old Prowl mould could stand replacing (so that's Prowl, Bluestreak, and Smokescreen). On it's own it wasn't bad, but the paint on all the figures was terrible and just ruined it. I'm pretty happy with what I already have, though.

Well, especially since I don't have the Classics fig, I think I'll be getting Smokey. I'll pobably get Prowl then too, since mine's losing his paint. I want to like Hound, but I will probably forever have Hound running around with Cloud Crosshairs (Sorry, Roadbuster) IDW Drift, AOE Rollbvar (getting the pattern now>?) and I just don't feel the CW asthetic works with those figs. Swindle's a definite. I also want to like Trailbreaker and Gun hand (have we cinfirmed it's CWFist compatible liek Rook?) but I don't like the hood on the Offroad Mold and I;m already putting up with it for Ironhide, so... Wheeljack's vehicle mode is Awesome, and I'd love to phase out his Genration mold, only because I have EVCERY OTHER character produced from it, but I don't think I will end up doing so, so Smokey will be alone... and not combined anyway.

Rumor mill has Blaster being a headmaster.

While I agree to an extent, I will say that the Marvel Comics (especially the UK ones) were vastly superior to the Sunbow cartoon. Those comics made great characters out of these guys, especially (of all bots) Ratchet! 8)

Henkei! Henkei! Dinobot is a thing of show-accurate beauty! :michaelbay:

Blasphemy! ;)

Honestly, though, I found the comics to be a weird confusing mess. The cartoon has its faults but I think I'm not the only one to say that the Movie was the pinnacle of G1 storytelling
