Finally! A Fallen with a proper head, proper articulating hands, a WEAPON, and a color scheme that doesn't suck! I will buy that and throw my other one into the vacuous depths of my storage closet.

I notice that more and more of the new bots and cons are actually coming with guns and other assorted weapons, which leads me to believe that someone is actually listening at Hasbro's helm now.

I thought that was just a repaint, but they did remold the head and hands, and gave him the staff. The original mold is a huge failure, but I might get that one on clearance.

Great looking group of figures. Blurr looks cool enough to warrant a second purchase of the mold. The Fallen looks WAY better than the original one. Axor and Dlx Rescue Ratchet look really good as well.

Tomahawk, Terradive and Highbrow all look awesome, with cool weapons and great head molds. Highbrow's head in particular is great cause it looks like he's smiling cause he thinks he's better than you.

Tomahawk, Terradive and Highbrow are awesome. I ama sucker for ariel bots so they are must haves. Breacher loos great, and the fallen isnt too bad. Superior to the first attempts but don't know how i feel about the paint scheme.

Oh wow, Highbrow looks amazing! I am a huge fan of WWII planes, and that is one of the most amazing TFs I have ever seen. I'm really excited about this.

I think I may be skipping PCC so I can collect Generations & HFTD.

Speaking of Generations, Blurr looks pretty good, but for some reason I expected him to look a little better. Don't know why. But I will be buying him for certain. Love the guns.

Agreed. I'd love to see a Wreckers Perceptor to go along with that sniper rifle.

I wish I hadn't wasted my money on the old The Fallen, but this one has the accurate face design which I HATE, but the new staff and Hands are awesome....hmmm.

There's rumor that the Fallen's face is removable..... if that's true I'm SO getting him, regardless of having the same basic mold.

He doesn't seem to have the head-flames/solar panels, instead a lighter-colored neck, and his crown has an apparent joint and split. But I may be looking far to into it.

A very alternate history version of the P-38 Lightning, what with the stubby, nonfunctional wings, the oversized weapons, the pushed back cockpit, the Star-Trek-style dish array on what passes for the nose, and the generally cartoonish proportions. Really doesn't fit with the rest of the movie toys. Although to be fair I guess Mindwipe's Altmode isn't exactly accurate either.

I have no problem with off vehicle modes, but the HEADS, why are they so un movie looking? Doesn't fit in at all, I hope there's heads that can switch in for those...

I figure with headrobots around, they might make an add on for highbrow, like they did for hardhead. Highbrow isn't that g1 looking though, so I dunno.

On another note, I'm surprised so many people seem to be disappointed that highbrow isn't more movie-verse looking. I thought a lot of people were tired of the movie figs. Things are so jumbled up it's hard to keep track of who is for what and who hates everything. I'm loving the generations line... What ever figs I can't get there then I'll fill in with bayformers until I can get a better homage for my collection. Oh well

I'm personally very glad for the return to more conventional-looking faces. I was definitely tired of the bug heads. It's really great that we're on a break between films, because Hasbro has a chance to be really creative and just make great toys, as opposed to being constrained by screen accuracy.

Well, it mostly has to do with that I got into(as in where I started actually learning about it) TransFormers BECAUSE of the first movie. Plus, I prefer their design, I guess that's a bit odd apparently o_O

Though I must agree with Kirbenvost, it's good to see some creativity, in fact the green plane guy(HighBrow, was it?) looks fantastic, and I wouldn't be bugged by the face except that it's supposed to be a movie figure, it's face doesn't fit in.
