Great comparison photos griffin, thanks for posting these.

I think Optimus looks worth getting but the others maybe not so much compared to the originals. Although having the complete set of 11 is tempting.

Agreed that these probably aren't the "best" versions of the characters.

Thanks for posting!

Soundwave definitely benefited from the new paint job - the unpainted grey plastic was always the original toy's weak spot. It's a shame he doesn't come with Laserbeak or even another weapon. Shockwave, Megatron and Ratchet also look pretty good with their new paint jobs.

I like the more realistic paint deco, but I was surprised how 'plain' Starscream looks compared to the original. Even without the tattoos, I think that's largely due to the lack of painted detail on the torso.

Bumblebee is an oddity - although the mould is from Dark of the Moon, the stripe scheme on the Camaro is from the first two movies.

Hi also would have preferred the deluxe Soundwave. And Starscream could use some tats or some more colour on his chest as this mold is flat like a pancake (i still prefer the tftm voyager).

That soundwave looks really good. The sls amg should always have had silver paint and now it does

The remaining three Best anniversary toys were released today by HLJ, which has the two Dinobots with new figurine riders, and the Leader Striker Optimus.

I really like the finish on Soundwave, I have it pre-ordered, now I have to decide if I'm going to open the Human Alliance one and keep laserbeak to go with the shiny version of the car.
