This is my first time seeing DOTM Laserbeak(outside of that milisecond in the Trailer), and is it wrong that my first impression of his face was that it reminded me of a sterotypical asian?

But looking at it some more, I realized it was actually something else entirely, The Giant Claw. James Rolfe can fill you in better than I can about him(mostly cause I've never seen the film):

So yes ladies and gentlemen, to me Laserbeak is a clear homage to The Giant Claw.

I have no idea what to think about this figure. I think I may have to get it because it's so bizzare.

The alt. mode looks good though, and gives off a strong G1 Cybertronian Laserbeak vibe.

Laserbeak's robot mode is very Giant Claw-like, while his alt mode is:
Image
a LOT like the Sigma Six Dragonhawk



I've already got enough Starscreams, but I think I may pick up the Thundercracker (and eventual Skywarp) repaint; the mold looks fantastic. While a new head would've been nice, the different "tattoo" pattern and the bold colors contrasts nicely with Starscream's. (here's hoping Skywarp has his own unique tats)

Autobot Thundercracker? Look at his shoulder.

Just for the promo shot.

Is it just me, or does Laserbeak's alt mode make a better bird mode than his bird mode?

The person that designed that Laserbeak should be ashamed of themselves.

I'll never buy another Mudflap again, not after that awful ROTF Deluxe. Don't want the seekers in deluxe form, and Bumblebee can bugger off. That leaves Laserbeak... nah.

Man. All these figure have those sleepy, been-hitting-the-bong-all-afternoon eyes. Keep an eye on Laserbeak or he'll eat all the chips and cookies in your apartment.

Laserbeak is just awful and i would if the person who designed him worked for Seth Green and Robot Chicken show?

Mudflap is a flop

B-Bee looks like a rag-tag KO

TCracker - is ok, but a seeker should be a voyager class, but either way all of these are a pass for me.

Thundercracker is ok but the res are garbage, Bumblebee looks like a KO not a hasbro release. Glad i dont care about this line cause if i did id be pissed at how lackluster hasbro is with making these figures.

Great pics, Ryan. Now I have everything to look forward to in Wave 3. I'm still twitchy on Mudflap. Eh, no. Or yes. Maybe? I'm going nuts!

Damn mudflap look so damn FAT...I bet even Leadfoot is not that fat -.-...Kudos hasbro for taking a major degradation of the Mudflap mold >.>.

Nitro Bumblebee looks epic in vehicle mode but really weak in robot mode @_@...I mean there's alot of unpainted spots and I dont like how the codpiece and his arms look.

Thundercracker...meh.In my opinion the mold looks okay but the paint apps is amazing though :D.But I already have Leader Starscream and I dont really like Thundercracker to begin with so...Yeah xP.

Laserbeak...Well let's just say if I ever buy that please shoot me in the head with a frickin sniper rifle X_X :BANG_HEAD: :BOOM: . Though the pic with him perch on Megatron's arm is epic though =P~ But still doesnt convince me to buy him with the ugly head and all >.>

I think the only deluxe I liked so far is Topspin and DOTM Bumblebee :D the rest is an easy pass.

At least the new textures give Bumblebee (and friends) SOMETHING to differentiate them from the past two dozen Bumblebees we've already seen. I know they sell, but I wish we could get other characters...

....like a consistently sized seeker lineup in both sizes. :D

So all I see is another shamefully designed seeker jet with crappy ass G1 tribute, a better look at Retardo-bot because that is what IT and that green one are, and a better look at a flying metal turkey...right? The only thing that barley saves this so called Laserbeak is that alternate flight mode.

Does anyone know how many more TF live movies to expect so I can try to expect more craptacular Bayformers in the future? I hated ROTF Ravage but someone should (when possible) pose Ravage with this dump Laserbeak in his jaws, it would be a great look for them both packaged Hasbro....'nuff said! :VEHI:

Thanks for sharing indeed, they might as well have used this bird than what Hasbro chose to dump on us. Just slap some panels on it to give it that robot look and done....'nuff said! :VEHI:

Ravage doesn't look too bad... BUT it's a shameless rip off of the Giger Alien with the head of Gypsy from MST3K. Seriously. Do a side by side comparison. I almost peed myself when I did. I hear "robot roll call" every time I see him in the movie.

On that note, when is there going to be a MST3K of the new movies AT Botcon? Too early? ;)

What an exotic bird Laserbeak looks like. But after sometime I'm really start to like his weird appearance.

What I dislike in this figure is: why his alternate mode needs to be another bird/aircraft ? I would prefer a alternate mode more like a capsule or missile.

Found Laserbeak at TRU today and bought him. He is the only deluxe class I've seen that
has any appeal to me. He'll fit in just fine w/ Ravage and Scorponok, also his Mechtech weapon is a BFG. I think when some people churn out some custom paint jobs on this guy people will see the potential. Until then continue to hate.
