Great looking robot mode but I just want to decapitate that ugly head of his.

I thought Skids was the better-looking robot of the two... except for his head, of course. That rusty brown look on Mudflap just didn't work well with the gray, whereas on Skids the neon green was nice, and the car mode wrapped around him nicely.

Simmons was my favorite

Simmons was my favorite character. Too bad they don't sell the humans seperately,because while I wasn't offended by the character (none of the Autobots could read the hyroglyphics),he was ugly and stupid. IMO a TF who looks worse than the ones I already own isn't worth more money than I spent on the others. I mean,you could hypothetically spend 30 and get the awesome WFC Optimus and Soundwave,or spend 30 and get Jar Jar and a "robot" that just looks like a broken motorcycle.

Atom,as far as the "hypocrites" who complained yet bought the toy anyway,that's just how nerddom operates. Once these people started collecting movie TFs,they're collecting them all,damnit! Whether I like them or not! They leave the theater,and use their phones to post to tfw2005 about how much they hate Bay while on the way to FYI to preorder the DVD.

People sometimes act like I'm wierd for cherry picking. I don't really collect a certain line first and foremost,I just buy the Star Wars figures I want,the Joes I want,TFs I want,etc. I think it's wierd to just buy everything a company puts out so you have a "set" regardless of how much you want it.

It's the same as people who still read Amazing Spider-Man. It's funny how everyone dropped the title,yet sales were so high it had to come out more often. How's that work?

Everything you guys just said about nerdom hypocrisy is so incredibly true as far as this subject's concerned. It seems to me that contradictions has become a moderation of the norm nowadays but has it always been one? Anyway, all the power to those who really didn't complain about Muddy and owns it. I can honestly say that I horrendously dislike the design's cheesiness, but that doesn't mean that I loathe all of them. The only movie bots that stood out for me in the toyline ONLY are Protoform Prime and Screamer, ROTF Thrust, Dirge, Breakaway, Mindwipe,Brawn and Bludgeon because they're cool looking and their aesthetics are on par with the War of Cybertron designs which I love all of them as much as the video game.

Yeah - I was one of those who found the clips I saw of those characters pretty offensive. They are robots, yes, but then again, it was obvious that they were trying to make some bad jokes and play with stereotypes to make children laugh. The gold tooth was what drove it over the top, beyond "Bad jokes told poorly" to "insulting." Again that's me, and my opinion, and I did see the clips out of context. But then again I'm one of those who found the entire TF movie process "insulting." ;)

Anyway speculators and scalpers will always buy up any figures that have "controversy" attached to it. 10 years from now I'm sure the human alliance version twins will be the only Bayformers people will have any interest in, which is sad- because they're awesome toys...
