I stopped grabbing movie figures during DotM. Movie figures seemed to go down in quality while the prices go up. I've seen the first wave of these in stores and so far nothing has grabbed my attention. May be tempted on Hot Rod depending on how cool he looks.
Something about this line shows no improved progress since the first movie. They look as if the have gotten cheaper. Also not very appealing characters, I was hoping that Hot Rod would have had some similarities. And some of them just are bizarre looking and named.
It's pretty much a repeat from the last movie. The only character I have real interest in this year is Barricade. The use of older molds, different scales and missed opportunities like Soundwave, Dino and Q/Wheeljack from the previous release made that line for me uninteresting.
