I'm pretty sure all HA Bumblebees have the head backwards out of the package.

Energon Starscream, who provided the base for Botcon Leozack and Skyquake, feels so unloved...

Most of the Energon Autobots were crippled because of the Powerlinx gimmick.

I've finally gotten my hands on Universe Inferno. He's a very nice fire engine with excellent detailing. The transformation is easy and interesting, mostly folding panels over on themselves. The robot is blocky yet very pose-able. Simply the one Universe Voyager you have to get!:up:

Aside from the fact you've got his waist facing backwards in the pics, that looks really stellar!

Funnily enough, HA Arcee uses Chromia's robot mode design, and probably vice-versa.

Which I personally think is a massive selling point - there seems almost to be a perception that movie figures need to be as complex as possible (or Transformers in general). Personally I'm a fan of a well thought out transformation, regardless of how simple or complex - that's the sign of good des...

I'd say it depends on the car. The Pontiac Solstice (Movie Jazz) is okay in silver, but the Corvette Stingray Concept (Sideswipe) is the best looking silver car. Sideways could use some black along the top to better match all his other toys that do have it. Back on topic, I'm feeling very, very temp...

I guess I'll be getting Leader Starscream. The Voyager Starscream Megatron can beat senselessly, the Leader Starscream Prime can beat senselessly!;)

I'm so glad I got rid of Armada Starscream. About the only good thing he did I think was steer me clear of most of the other Armada toys. (I've no regrets getting Unicron or Energon Tidal Wave though)

Arcee is... well... weird. Extremely stable due to the stand, and a nice vehicle mode, but the robot is weird. Depthcharge is an interesting and fun little boat. Can't say I care for the official battle mode for this guy, though. Dirt Boss is a scrappy little forklift! I like the idea of fork blades...

Picked up Thrust a day or two ago. After months of hunting down the Breakaway mold, I finally got it in a sexy red/purple color. If you were turned off by the original's color scheme, pick this guy up. The mold is fantastic. The jet mode has almost ZERO kibble. http://i709.photobucket.com/albums/ww...

I just got her, and yeah she's weird. Yet somehow, I kind of like her... Hasbro, get to work on the third bike. And it better not be a repaint.

I'll get pics of him up soon hopefully, and perhaps in a few different robot mode configurations. Like Stockade, whose repaint is one of Jolt's co-sells, he's fairly easy while still looking like a movie figure.:up:

If you want a Cheetor, go looking for either the original BW toy or the Transmetals version. Universe Cheetor looks like they took all of the weaknesses of the previous versions and slapped them together. I have Henkei! Dinobot, and I'm quite fond of him. The sword/missile is the only thing that's c...

Jolt's the ****ing bomb - with a mod to the feet. Putting them so the boot halves are rotated means you have to cant his legs so they're about 45 degrees forward from his body; tilting them to "Alternators Smokescreen" position is much better. Or am I just Doing It Wrong? Aside from that, he's awes...

Name: Jolt Function: Warrior? Sub-Group: ROTF Deluxe class Jolt loves to cause trouble. More than one group of Decepticons have watched in confusion as Jolt, all alone, race around them in circles, taunting them. They’re not used to Autobots acting crazy.
