I really try not to have knee jerk reactions to new things. I really do. I'm not really interested in collecting in that scale, but affordable, quality 12" figures would probably entice me.
These don't. Now, the Sideshow figs...well, 70 bucks a pop, it probably ain't happenin', but at least I can look at those and want them. I know there's no fair comparison and I don't mean to do that...but I really don't find these 12" figures interesting in the least.
And Dusty has serious man-boobs.

Also, I don't find Hasbro's effort with these to be all that stupendous. Man-boobs aside, this line is just not that interesting.

Dusty looks nothing like the character. Sucks.

Flint looks like a must for me, I'll probably pass on the other ones though.
As far as I'm concerned, You cant make a Bazooka toy without a sports jersy. Let's hope we see a good 3.75 inch Dusty soon, I'd probably buy that instead of this crap.
My latest acquisition(s): Blue Baroness, M.A.S.S. Battle Pack
I am a Transformers fan too!

I will only buy the $20+ up versions(if there will be any), and only if they have the super articulated body. Honestly, while there is some improvement, these aren't that far off from the VVV 12" figures from a couple of years ago, and those were not very impressive either. In a way, this kind of effort seems to sabotage the the line, which has a lot of promise. If $20+ versions do come out, they have to use the super articulated body and have more clothing/accessories, otherwise, the 8" Sigma 6 figures did a better job of doing the same thing at a smaller size. Compared to sigma 6 and the "new sculpt" figures, 12" seemed lackluster.
Sure, maybe this is hasbro's way of a cheaper alternative for kids and collectors to sideshow's releases, but these aren't the best. The 12" line did not do well to begin with during the VVV years, and since these do not look any better, maybe it won't do as well now. I can tell you one thing, it won't be selling as much as the anniversary figures. If the $20+ line doesn't come out, and if later waves don't have significant improvements, this line is doomed from the start.
Don't get me wrong, for the price, I am not expecting a Sideshow figure, but I am expecting a far better figure than past 12" gijoes. So far, we have yet to get it in the same pricepoint.
