Starscream and Snowcat look decent. Too bad those are the first figures from Energon that I'd actually consider buying. :\ I may be skipping out on this line entirely...

Prowl looks like an overgrown minicon.

Yes, yes he does, now that's all I can see.

Anyway, what I'm not likeing about energon (besides some ugly molds) is the fact that alot of the toys have bits sticking up with no where to go. Look at Snowcat - there's that thing in his back in vehical mode, sure it looks like they're going to add stuff ontop, but it doesn't attach, it just hangs there. Looks like poor planning or design

Prowl will look better transformed correctly. Starscream is pretty nice. Snowcat is very mediocre, IMO.

Snowcat just isn't transformed correctly.....

All Snowcat and Starscream pictures I've seen so far:

Maybe it's just me, but Snowcat sounds like a pretty lame name for a decepticon.

Alright... if what Shrapnel Clone posted is a picture of a production model Screamer, its okay but nothing earthshattering. Prowl is just a larger version of Armada Swindle/Zapmaster/Mirage. He sucks.

Now, SnowCat *deep breath*... the Snow Cat was a G.I.Joe vehicle from 1988 which has had numerous reuses (the most recent being as a 2003 TRU exclusive). The alt mode of that Decepticon? It's along similar lines (I'm sure that canopy/cockpit is the same one) and they've just dragged G.I.Joe through the mud by using one of their transport names for a substandard Decepticon.

Rest assured, the Snow Cat from G.I.Joe is cool. That one? That sucks so much as somebody should die because of giving it the same name as such a marvelous toy...

Starscream = leet.

He has the same basic form as me RPG char design.

Eep....I saw Prowl, first thing that came to mind was "Yeah right, I already own one of those! And it came free with Starscream!" Starscream and Snowcat look okay, for Supercons. I'm not getting too excited about this line, and the paintjobs aren't looking too great either...

Here's some good news

They're droping the "Con" in the sizes (Thank you lord!)

So here's how it is

Minicon (packs) = Basic
Supercon = deluxe
Maxicon = Mega
Gigacon = Ultra

And then there's Supreme sized
