Ah, that explains the reason for having a rocket-launcher without making use of it in robot orvehicle mode. It would bepretty damn cool if it would be used in the movie.

Nice. I like how the shell of the mixer part kind of become blast shields.

I always felt that Robotreplicas should have delivered far more accurate 'bot mode representations and higher levels of detail than they actually did. To me, they tend to be a far more exaggerated and cartoony version of the Movie character than many of the main line toys. Probably just me.

SPOILER! (select to read)
The artillery mode for Mixmaster is interesting - the general feel of the fellow is fairly insectile, like so many of the 'cons. It puts me in mind of the Plasma Bugs in Starship Troopers. If it's used in the film, that should be fun! If not, hats off to the designers for adding an additional mode with a preplanned purpose, as opposed to random modes added to other figures just because articulation allows... (No, I'm not thinking of Cybertron Menasor, Energon Scorponok and certainly not RID Megs / Galvatron... No no no. [Interesting, though, that Menasor and Megs are two of my fave figures! ])

I'm liking the artillery mode. Finally, a third mode that doesn't look like an afterthought. The 'blast shields' are cool too. I wonder if the others can do that as well.

On another note, i'd really like if Megs bought out some cannons, and when the bots got close, they turned into the constructicons. That would be cool.

What's the point of having that much BBs again?!Two deluxes already?!The Human-Alliance-thing is alright I guess,but in my opinion one Bumblebee in deluxe-size would have been more than enough...but maybe that's just me,I don't like the character at all and bought the mold in red...

On the other hand,the Gravity Bots are a must have,just cute.And so far,there are more figures I want to buy than I expected.Already preordered my you-know-which-one-preview-figure a week ago and I'm really looking forward to it.

Well,the Gravity Bots are obviously aimed at younger fans,but who cares :P

Basically,the name says it all,take the vehicle,lift it up,stand it up on the bumper,and BY THE POWER OF GRAVITY it transforms.Well,a few panels flip around.It's awesome,seriously.

So, about the only difference between the first movie version and this one is that all of the black parts are now grey? I'll easily pass.

Eh, I never got around to getting Ratchet last time around. I guess this is a buy for me. Character completism is fun!

Human missile launchers? So it shoots human missiles? That sounds more like a Decepticon thing.
