Ouch... none of those actually look as good as I'd hoped... Jazz is crying out for some alt-mode paint apps (he looks like a protoype), while Barricade and Bumblebee are just too gangly. Tankor's alright, though.

Oh, and Scorponok is just hilarious. "Turns from scorpion to slightly evil caterpillar!".

Eh...Jazz and Brawl might be worth picking up but I'd have to see them in person first. Brawl's too hard to make out on my monitor but his arms look spindly from where I'm sitting and I don't know what to make of Frenzy.

Not feeling it for Bumblebee and Scorponok...looks...looks...damn. Couldn't they have given this guy some proper legs and to do something with that tail? It looks like he's dragging his dignity on the ground.

The pictures of Jazz, posted by Airraid, looked pretty good to me, actually they made him look fantastic really.

I think the figures all look good. It's just that, as ever, Hasbro just can't pose toys worth a damn.

I still love the greatness (erm, or is that greatmess) that is Scorponok. I think he'll be good fun, if nothing else, and the Scorp mode is nice at least.

I'm not sold on Bumblebee, but I may be in person or after the movie. He's the design I'm having the most difficulty getting my head round, to tell the truth.

Jazz looks a bit fatter that I had thought, but could just be the angle (or camera adding weight!).

Brawl looks nifty as ever, and I don't think his arms are as spindly as they appear. The black paint down the middle to the hands just doesn't help that impression though.

And Barricade? Well, I don't think there is anything anyone could possibly do to make him look bad!

Certainly plenty of selection to pick and choose from anyhoo.

i always wondered about the tail too. poor fella, anywho, if anyone remembers my idea from awhile back: "making him a half humanoid, half scorpion" would have done the job on him better methinks. and jazz does look a bit fat, but maybe it is the angle as was stated also. bumble bee looks so gangly, hopefully it is also the camera angle. i am not entirely sold on brawl, i feel they could have put more thought into him as a tank (even if there is so much one can do to a tank). but overall, i am waiting to see those more detailed photos of megs, he looked good from the angles i rememeber from the prototype imagwes i had seen either here or on seibertron.com .

Barricade has to be a go-er, and Jazz, but the rest I can live without now I see them like this. Scorponok's robot mode does have that 'buy me take me home' look, though...:rolleyes: and I bet the Scraplets will so want him for the scorpion mode.

I'm an Alternator freak (I have all 26 as of yester day) so I'm obviously bad enough without buying multiple versions of these characters. When are they going to make the Alternator versions?
