Favorite DoTM Toys?

Dr Traveler

Recommended Posts

Considering that we're appearing to enter a phase of mostly repaints and recycled RoTF models, and add to that we just saw a deluge of $5.00 coupons out there, it seems like now is the perfect time to reflect on our favorite figures from DoTM. What did you like?


My personal favorites:

Cyberverse Commanders: At this point the only commanders I haven't personally laid hands on are Hatchet and Guzzle. Given how awesome the rest of the line is, I'd be surprised if they didn't kick tail themselves. The Commander line in the Cyberverse subline has been just all kinds of awesome.


Deluxes: DoTM Ratchet, Thunderwing, and Bumblebee were all good, even though they were all figures you had to be very tempted to pass up as they all either had figs in the previous lines, or they were repaints. If you missed those three though, you really missed out. DoTM Ratchet is all kinds of cool, and Thuderwing is a very good fan service repaint of what is a surprisingly good mold. DoTM Bumblee seems to be the one Bumblebee I've seen at the deluxe scale that just seems "right". Special mention for DoTM Sideswipe. It's so close to being a great toy. Why oh why didn't they paint the thing?


Voyager, Leader, Ultimate, Etc.: For the most part I stayed away from this point upwards in price. I did pick up DoTM Ironhide, and despite the hate online, I'm enjoying him a lot. I know years from now I'll kick myself for passing up Shockwave, but money doesn't grow on trees.


And for a bonus question:


Are there any repaints you'd actually want to see? For me an Earth mode Starscream in G1 colors, a Skywarp repaint, and another Swerve (Red Sideswipe) would be awesome. I kinda wish I'd held off for Canon Force Ironhide, but C'est La Vie.

Powerglide, HA Roadbuster, Deluxe Top Spin, and Leader Sentinel Prime they are the top ones of the DOTM line.


Megatron is also good, but honestly would look better in Leader Class

Skyhammer is pretty rad. I just recently started picking up the Comander Cyberverse figures and love the ones I have. Just picked up the Ark today. Haven't played with it yet but everyone else seems to love it. I love Leader Ironhide. Goes great with Human Alliance/Alternators.

There really hasn't been that much that I really like from DOTM. Shockwave, Megatron, and Skyhammer are all nice voyagers, but they don't scream awesome like Highbrow and Mindwipe from the earlier movie lines. Deluxe prime is also pretty cool (especially with BB's cannon), but I'm going to say that my favorites are the cyberverse commanders. I have Blackout, Powerglide, and Hatchet, and they're all must haves in my opinion, so long as there's a sale.

Get Drag Strip if you can, and Reverb is pretty sweet too.

Shockwave and Megatron (Voyagers), Laserbeak, Nitro Bumblbee, and Crankcase (Deluxe), Drag Strip and Reverb (HA), and Powerglide and Hatchet (Cyberverse) are my favs so far.

I'm reall glad I decided to wait for the repaints to start coming out before buying the majority of my DOTM figures. Specialist Ratchet, Dark Steel, Cyberfire Bumblebee, Space Case, Cannon Force Ironhide, and the Optimus Prime with the ax are all better than their original versions. I hope Twin Twist is good too. I'm looking foward to him.
