I'll have to see them in an episode before I know for sure, but on first impression...utter disgust.

They look like Power Rangers.

So according to Derrick J. Wyatt, the stock photos are crappy, the toys DO have hands and we should wait for better photos.

Stock photos mistransformed? Shocking!

Seriously, though, I'm glad to have confirmation, 'cause the more I look at them the more I'm liking their unique "sideways" combining thing.

I like the vehicle mode, the combiner part is interesting. I'll have to see them in store and episode before I decide.

MOLDED HANDS! WOW!

The way the smaller robots arms hang beside the head make me think this should be a SQWAWKBOX!

Heh. When the combined mode punches someone he's techinically also kick ing them at the same time . . .

I dunno. I still feel like the robot modes are lacking in character. They're a bit generic-looking for my taste. In a line that's chock-full of fantastic figures these aren't even a blip on my radar.

It looks better than it did... but gah..... I agree with the top-heavy-ness of it all. I may just let this one pass then. It was a good idea at first but now it just doesn't look like it does it for me like I once thought it would (and defended also).

What's wrong with being generic looking?

It's just not animated's style. Almost everything else that's come out of Animated has had exaggerated proportions which add a good deal of character to the sculpts (love 'em or hate 'em. I really like the style myself). These guys are just Plain Janes.
