...the yellow on Prime's head may have been from an early model!

Hmmm... still don't like the head... looks too piscene for me...

I hope that the arms retract into the cab better in vehicle mode... I don't like those exhausts as they are, let alone stuck out that far... that truck would so get pulled over looking like that...

Megatron reminds me of the Thundertank from Thundercats...

...not necessarily a disfavourable comparison. I mean, these things have play gimmicks in both modes bettering most TC figures/vehicles.

If ya scroll down, they don't look so bad from a sideways perspective. Of course, I'd prefer it if they'd sell him without the trailer as a cheaper package... :D

Slightly better looking in these pictures, but still hideous.

I think the new toys are going to be cool. RID didn't look that good when it first came out, now they look cool has heck. I think with the new line, they tried to go a little more old school. Everybody, will like them in the end; just like with RID optimus.

http://www.bwtf.com - new pics up. Go now.

Some of them actually look quite groovy now that I've become accustomed to them... Red Alert is looking likely for me to buy... and the smaller Prime robot still looks nice...

Hot Shot looks kinda feminine... in a way I'm reminded of the three small Autobot Headmasters...

starscream and Redalert look the cooler molds.But after RiD they do look a little too blocky making it harder for 'serious collectors'

Me?
I them fun and looking good.They remind me of the headmaster and powermaster toys for some reason.After RiD coolness I think Armarda will either take some getting used to or its is more proof hasbro themselves are not very good inhouse tf designers.
