Thanks for the great galleries, Seibertron! These are truly great resources, especially if I'm on the fence about picking up a particular figure.

Great galleries as usual Ryan.

I'm still not hot on Smokescreen... I think Hasbro kind of dropped the ball on him. The color scheme was just off, like all those blinding yellow bits, the red gun, and the bright red color doesn't look very good. Smokescreen should be an darker red.

Oh well, having almost no money, I'll just have to make due with this one. Can't afford Henkei.

Great galleries.

Not feeling Universe Smokescreen. I agree with post above, the color tones aren't quite right. If I get him, it's Henkei all the way.

This Optimus has always looked weird to me too. Just doesn't go with the other in the Classics line. Way too anime with the oversized eyes and the odd proportions. I definitely like this version of Megatron more though.

I guess this means I won't be fighting for him with you at Walmart or Target.

Megatron looks WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better! I hated he green, but he had a nice mould, and a cool Optimus came with him, so I got him.

I think someone in Hasbro is colorblind. Henkei Smokescreen for me.

Glad I preordered Henkei Smokescreen, but those Universe SE Prime & Megatron figs look rather nice. I want them!

Yeah, it's almost a relief that I ordered 2 Henkei Smokescreens.

I'm also very happy with S.E. Dragstrip. Great figure!!!!

I got that Optimus Prime. While the box is nice, the toy itself is very dissapointing. It's too small for a Prime, and the truck mode lacks a lot. The head shows. I'm keeping it on it's box. It looks better like that, but the toy itself... sigh.

Thanks again for the galleries, they are really awesome, and we really appreciate your time in putting them up for us.

I agree with everyone else. I'm not feeling the hasbro smoke screen much, but i haven't gotten any henkei yet and I'm not sure if I want to start down that long, expensive, road. I love the mirage/dragstrip mold, but the dragstrip paint on mine is really messy.

I think I might leave the 4 of them boxed for now, the boxes are just so nice.

They really could've did something different with Prime for the new release. He's basically a shade darker than the other. They could've at least made him Ultra Magnus or Nemesis Prime or even Motormaster to go with Dragstrip

Hasbro did a great job on Universe Prowl and Silverstreak, but Smokescreen is awful. Looks like it was painted by a blind monkey. Why is the gun red, should be black for realism. The forearm colour is horrible, they should've painted the entire arm and thigh silver.

Thanks for the galleries!

Predacon Bruticus and Dinobot are up too. Scourge is a figure I missed out on during Cybertron, and I regret that. I think the original had the best colors, but this one looks good. Might pick it up.

Hope to see Dinobot around here soon, might get him too.
