I'll take a Knockout and 2 Vehicon please!

I'm really loving all three new guys. It still looks like you can fold back those grill pieces on Knock Out, but I do like him, and the matte maroon on the brighter shiny red looks kind of neat to me, and I hope they do more texture work with paint in the future. Vehicon looks proper evil, although I feel he'll be a little too hard to come by to form a good army, and though I hate the RID Bee mold, Hot Shot's differences pull it off flawlessly to me. I just hope they fixed that automorph gimmick to be a bit more stable.

Knockout and Vehicon both look great to me. Knockout especially looks WAY better in hand than his Hasbro stock photos.

I'm still on the fence about Hot Shot. Especially since he's never been on the show...

Well yah, but at least he makes that mold look good. RID Bee looks like a bodybuilding five-year-old. I'm glad I have the FE version of him to use.

Also, yes, Knock Out looks so much better here, I'm just still sad there's no gold on him!

I found Ratchet and Arcee at Target, so I picked them up already (got two Arcees for the weapons). Now I need these guys and about 5 more Vehicons.

I just got Ratchet and am about to open him, but I didn't really want the Arcee. I've traded my FE Arcee for a huge lot of figures to a friend of mine because I'm none too fond of her either. I just think they could have done SOMETHING about the backpack.

Repro labels will come through for knockout and others, right?

I sure hope so, but I might just do some paint on KO. He looks so good! Also, even though Hasbro is sort of lax on paint apps, I think they are starting to learn to put them in the right places even if there isn't a lot of them.

Knockout is growing on me, and vehicon? Puts the first edition backpack to SHAME.

I'm so mad KnockOut's rims aren't yellow!

Yah, that Vehicon might be my favorite figure of the line thus far. it just looks so GOOD. That more regal shade of purple isn't too garish, either.

I hope Knock Out's chest is mistransformed, he looks too flat. I love that Vehicon, I might even get 2 of them. Of course this is all assuming those damn RiD Bumblebees sell by the time these show up. Seriously Hasbro, he's not THAT popular. Especially when the toy itself is such a PoS.

Where I'm at, I've actually seen more Cliffjumpers than anything else. So much that if I put him off and never get him, I won't have to worry if he's gone.

sweet, can't wait to get my hands on the new wave
Arcee and Ratchet just started popping up so I would assume i will see these soon

the vehicon looks awesome, hope they introduce a better price point when these come out so i can get it. I picked up wheljack & arcee with the hasbro coupons yesterday and i can officially say now they are not worth $13-$15, $10 would be the most id pay but id still feel pretty ripped off since this seems to be a hit or miss line. Wheeljacks awesome but Arcee is halfassed, the tire on the back & giant wings kill it. Plus they're to damn small to be sold for $13-$15. The line has potential but the pricing just ruins it.

I don't quite get the hate for RID Bumblebee aside from the fact that I don't think I've ever seen a single picture with him positioned right so that the hood actually faces in a downward angle instead of straight out. He is actually (which surprised me once I got him) and very solid figure. Better than Cliffjumper.

The only reason I might not get Hot Shot is that he is not in the show. I'm not the biggest fan of the Unicron Trilogy, and so the homage to Cybertron/Armada Hot Shot just doesn't do anything for me.

Well, I couldn't get FE Cliff, so I might consider RID, I mean he doesn't look horrible, just not as good. If Bee is a solid figure, I'm definitely getting Hot Shot. I've never been the kind of collector to not get someone because they aren't in the show, I go for what molds interest me, and I did LIKE Bee's, just not as Bee. they put a little too much automorph into him and it made him look a bit clunky. Hot Shot looks better though, for some reason. Might be the paint job.

Yeah, his automorph reavealer gimmick is a bit more excessive than the others, but he is not a bad figure. He satisfies the role, and doesn't make me feel like I need to hunt down the FE version.

Cliffjumper on the other hand, I don't know, I just feel like it is the weakest figure I bought in a long time. Underwhelming transformation and bot mode. Vehicle mode looks great though.

To me, the best out of these three is ............... VEHICON! I'm seriously thinking about modifying his head to make him my first crossover to ....... Batman. :lol:
