I think a lot of people don't like them because they don't transform (they're essentially the modern version of Action Masters).

 

I have a few and like them, they're great representations of the animated characters' robot forms.

 

The only thing I'd steer you clear of is that if you are a Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime fan, just get one of these guys, not both - they're the same figure, just the accessories are different.

They aren't the same figure. The chest and spoiler are also different (Hot Rod's chest slopes in at the shoulders whereas Roddy's is more "muscular", and Roddy's spoiler is narrower and thicker just like the toys -- and just like the way they appeared in TF:TM).

 

I think some work better than others. The PVC / HOC figures have the same level of detail at half the size, so the mega SCF guys come off as a bit "plain" looking sometimes. Having said that, I love my Hot Rod and Optimus Prime, though Megs has a weird head sculpt.

OK, I just looked at some pictures of these guys on the internet and you're right.

 

My bad.
