SWEETNESS !

Man that rachet, that is a must buy. Just the way he looks alone, is a must have n my collection. I will be picking him as soon as he hits store.

The binoculors I would get to. The earlier pics of it, for some reason, I just didnt like that much, but now seeing those new pics, it looks like that is going to be a must buy to. He looks simple, but at the same time he is a set of binoculors, it dont need to be that difficult. I am gonig to pick that up.

The camera also is looking ratther nice, cant wait to see more pics of it thow.

The Camera's interesting.

I wonder if the Camera, Phone and Binocs were unproduced moulded from Cybertron that are getting marketed with the movie? I ask, because the heads seem quite a bit more "human" or traditional, as compared to the ones we're seeing for the movie (and the pic on the back of the camera helps a bit too)

I'll say I don't hate Ratchet, but I wouldn't say he's my favorite tf.

The binoculars robot looks awesome. I'll definitely be picking him up.

'Tis really nice to see a return of... oh, I dunno what to call them... Objectformers? Everyday objects instead of cars, planes, and tanks.

Camera's back to looking good again - though from pics it doesn't seem that much more advanced than the old Convertors stff (well, aside from being a more modern camera, obviously... well, not that obviously or I wouldn't have to type this to prevent some wanker going "they didn't have digitul cameras int he 1980s LOL"). Ratchet... well, needs a torso...

Definitely going to pick up the little guys, not sure about Rachet.

I recently bought "Focus Robo" from Diaclone series. Not quite sure if the version I got is licensed Taiwanese product or KO, but quality is good.

Similarities to this toy are obvious.

Nice! I've always thought that guy looked much better than Reflector.

I'm getting a robo-cop vibe from binoculars head.

I certainly think they look a lot more like traditional Transformers!



Really loving Ratchet. Just unsure exactly how green he is, as the photos all have different colour balances. Even if he is ouch-green, the mold is amazing and I'll add him to my collection. I love the head, and the inverted torso. It's nice to see the degree of detailing around the head area now as well!

The camera bot is perhaps my favourite 'new' TF concept in ages! I just love him! And binocular dude is cool too... (Still unconvinced as to the handheld, but better coloured pics may help sway me... phone's grand though!)

'tis shaping up to be a good TF toy year so far!

I say, never mind the body - hasn't Ratchet got a big bum? Still, given that I usually don't display the derriere, that'll be fine. Colour balance of photos could be better, but that's just the way it is and we will have to hope he doesn't turn out to be bright lime! I will be on the lookout for him for def now.

The children out there will absolutely bite of any hand offering Longview and Spyshot. These are two perfect kiddy items, just proving that Hasbro knows a winner, too!

Aw, that's supposed to come with a flashbulb? No fair. Guess I can't complain for $1 though...

The gadgetbots all look gnarly in my supposition. And har on the 7:47's.

Ratchet also looks the best of the reg'lar line so far. Bulk is good.

You... lucky... bastard.

I'm REALLY partial to this little guy. My favorite as a kid and now he proudly adorns my desk at work. I've even got a LightWave version of him I built for ha-ha's...

I like the concept of the final design - I just find the colours rather garish. Of course, I have no complaints - my brother's console collection is all blindingly bright! I do like the display with Cybertron Jetfire there. Very nice touch. I may pick him up if he jumps out at me in a shop later this year, but at the moment the other three really tickle my fancy...

They're shooting at Jetfire! Awesome! Fairly all right bot, but the thought of decepticons' playing videogames about shooting down one of the autobot's finest is definitely amusing enough to bump it up a few notches.

You all realise, of course, that we are going to have to fight off the parents of small children to grab this insanely cute 'bot? This is going to be a must have and I guess many of us must have him, if only for the picture - with Jetfire coming in on a strafing run!
