Is that Overtkill? looks like it could be Ratbat.

I'm not sure how I feel about these. While they definitely look cool, it seems the prices and quality control just don't stack up against Fansproject. I want the PE-01R, but until I can buy it separately, I'm won't. I'm not spending $60+ to buy two tiny figures when I only want one of them.

I think you're probably right; those are more than likely Ratbat's "ears". Edited to reflect. Thanks Editor!

I don't see the need for another wheelie, I like my Classics one just fine.

I'll take the cassette homages though.

Wheelie looks like a remold of Energon Strongarm.

Ditto...and I have all 3 Warriors and still not that satisfied. I think the concepts and ideas are great. It's the execution that's lacking. You have a target master alt mode...that can't really be held. WTF guys. I want to like your toys. I love the bot modes, but I do want them to have a useful alt mode as well.

I am a sucker however. Any g1-esque looking stuff will most likely be bought. From the previous purchases, I find the price to be too high for something so small and faulty. Had they have the same track record as Fans Project, I'd be clamoring all about them. But FP they are not. I might wait for reviews to come out before I purchase these. I also do hope the price of the figures come down from the last production runs. Here's hoping that they have learned from their mistakes and can actually improve on their toys.

I'd have to see the "bird" mold a bit better to consider. The neck looks kind of spindly on a massive body.

The Eject mold looks good, but why make a Wheelie?

Ah well, high hopes to them. This "line" has been a refreshing take on targetmasters.

im pretty happy with the Hasbro Wheelie mold...I'll pass on this one.

Wheelie for ... how much will this end up being?

I swear, that guy must be really popular in Japan. There was a ludicrously expencive garage kit and now this. Well, the Universe release is enough for me.

Part of the appeal of Rumble / Frenzy was how they looked kinda like the G1 toon. Lazerbeak and Ratbat lose that. And it's a real detriment that they can't be used with Label Soundwave, the closest thing to Classics Soundwave we have. Although, at least Cybertron Soundwave can hold R&F.

All easy passes for me.

Only Wheelie I am ever interested in is a 12-pack: each one comes with an M80 stuffed inside it. You light it and watch them blow up. And it's a beautiful thing...

I got the shadow warrior for no good reason whatsoever, wasn't that impressed with him. I got it on a whim, don't know if i will get anything else they release.

What do Buzzsaw/Laserbeak transform into? Is it a flight pack? Don't see the point of eject/rewind. I never got Universe Blaster (hate the mold) but will get DL Blaster. The g1 cassettes work with him. The appeal of PE-01 was robot accurate design. These don't do it for me.

After my lackluster experience with the Godsword and reports of shotty quality with the Shadow Warriors, I'm not going to get too excited about these. PE needs to have a home run before I'm buying more of their products.

And Wheelie seems a little pointless.

You know what though guys, your forgetting a Soundwave: War for Cybertron. I'll bet if he has the mm hole, these'd be sweet with him. All of them. (Thoiugh he only needs one jetpack, but ive the other to another grounded con)

Am I the only one who thinks these things look like a stab at a Bakugan cash-in? Most of these alt modes look a lot like the battle-gear weapon packs you magnetize onto the backs of certain Bakugan.

I just got Frenzy & Rumble yesterday, and I'm actually quite impressed with the little guys. Heaps of articulation on such small figures and a surprising amount of detail both moulded and with paint apps.

The negatives:
- the mini-pistol doesn't fit on the alt mode to make the weapon-handle, making the alt mode kind of useless. Since they are never going to be in alt mode for me anyway it's not a huge deal, but not great.
- paint apps on one of my figures were excellent, a little sloppy on the other - but these are such tiny figures that the paint apps are still quite impressive.
- would have been better if the handle was a 5mm post, allowing any figure to use it rather than just city commander. Actually I haven't verified this, could be wrong.

Overall, these are still the best Rumble/Frenzy figures I own, but they are certainly not perfect. I'd still recommend them however as long as you are aware of the above negatives.

They are much better than my Impossible Toys animated figures, which are a load of crap (and makes me a bit worried about their upcoming Arcee).

Eject and Rewind could be cool.

Don't really need Ratbat, Laserbeak or Wheelie as we've already got Classics/Universe versions of them. (Or in the case of Laserbeak, Booster X10.)

it looks like Wheelie but the alt mode looks like something else. :???:
