Wow. This.....is the greatest thing ever, that Jetfire looks almost exactly like stormbringer jetfire.
I had high hopes for the Classics line but, this line just kicks the sh*t outta any other line ever.
Guess my high expectations payed off.

Of all the classics I have seen so far, JETFIRE is the bee's knees. Mirage is thin and his feet remind me of Energon prowl, but he ain't as bad as people are saying. I also hope the gun arm on Megatron is mis-transformed (is that a word? ...) because everything else about him is dope.

I really like Mirage, dont see what all the fuss about him is for.

The line is shaping up to be great - does anybody know how long it is set to continue for?

I'd love it to just go on and on.

Mirage looks better than Grimmy, which says a lot... maybe things'll improve with clearer pics and a good pose.

Yeah... Grimlock looks like he was just dumped out from the bottom of a toy chest.

Two things come to mind:

1) Toys don't look too impressive or dramatic when they're not photographed by someone that wants to flatter them.

2) The Classics toys seem to really benefit by not having an extra gimmick crammed in (Cyber keys, combining, etc.).

Odd how this Mirage seems like a backwards step fromt he decade-old MW mould used for RM Rijie.

Grimlock... can you say "generic Beast * dinosaur painted in G1 colours"? Still, hopefully we'll get some shots where he hasn't been sat on soon...

I was really hoping for a more a G1 styled Grimlock with better articulation--instead of the "Look at me, I can stand on my head" Grimmy.

He doesn't look horrible but would rather see some more pics of him. At least he looks like he is normal sized rather than the Energon insult to his name.

Grimlock doesn't look great in beast mode, can't really tell in robot mode. I'd probably end up getting him as long as he's cheaper than the original on eBay.

I can't really tell whether or not I like him from the pics. Hopefully, better ones turn up soon. Concept art looked decent, so I have high hopes.

They did thsi for sentimental reasons, thus not even changing anything from the old design except maybe more poseability and such. I cannot judge the toys though, they never honestly came to where I live sadly enough. I will say from what I saw from the gestalt mode, they looked brittle and not really worth collecting.

AND BEFORE SOMEONE BITCHES AGAIN: JUDGING FROM EXPERIENCE, THE UGLY PAINT ON HIS HEAD IS ONLY THERE TO MAKE THE TEST SHOT LOOK UNATTRACTIVE TO POTENTIAL BUYERS. IT WILL NOT BE ON THE FINAL PRODUCT.

Wow. Looks to be based off the RM mold, but with some slight modifications. I'm not a fan of Prime, but I'm severely tempted. A really, really cool toy. This one's probably going to sell about 10 times better than the other classics OP.

EDIT: Now, if only we could get a scaled-down Air Attack Primal, or similar-looking figure. That thing is boss, but a little out of scale with the rest of my tfs. Not that I really play with them that much, but it'd be nice if I ever did a display of my beasties. It's also quite bulky when I'm trying to fiddle with it.
