    Really well done review Wes, turning out the lights was a nice touch for the lights!

    I saw these at Target as well as TRU over the weekend and they were significantly cheaper at Target. I really like the individual designs of the robots and can definitely see myself scooping them up on the cheap.

    Those hips absolutely SUCK, you are completely right, the old MU figures that have those things make me want to chuck them in the garbage disposal.

  • I like the look of the big ones and the little ones… But the wacky action on the big ones is enough to turn me off to them. The little guys seem decent, though.

    I can't say I'm enthused about the movie but the 'bot designs are slowly growing on me, I'm ready to be proved wrong, it would be nice for Jackman to have a hit again.
    I won't be picking these up, but I am intrigued to see what ThreeA are going to do with the license, the prototype teasers have been pretty cool… http://us1.campaign-archive2.com/?u=df39a60ebc972
    One last thing, this movie doesn't have anything to do with Rock 'em sock 'em. It's based on a Richard Matherson short story that pre-dates the Rock Sock toys and was adapted into a Twilight Zone episode.

    And I forgot to say, excellent review!

    Yeah the big dogs' action gimmicks hurt them in the articulation dept.

    I guess it's for the best, though. The little guys are much better articulated and its nice not having to drop 15 bucks a pop for the cool designs!

    Thanks! And thanks for the info! I had heard a long time ago that they were making a rockem sockem flick but I never guess it might be this.

    Didn't know threea had this license too, awesome!
