Loving that Unicron. I knew Leadfoot would be a target exclusive, obvious target exclusive is obvious. Impressed with him too. I also like Spacecase. All these shall be mine >:^)

The WFC 3-pack looks good, but I don't think it's quite good enough for me to want to get a second of each mold in there. Bumblebee doesn't need to be there as far as I'm concerned though. Instead of him they should have included some incentive for people to rebuy these molds, like the melee weapons of Prime (axe) and Megatron (mace).

When I saw the thumbnail of the WFC 3-pack, it looked good. Full size, not so much. From the thumbnail, I had thought that Megs was actually a G1 Galvatron-themed recolor. Seeing them up close, Bumbebee is the only one that I like very much, and I don't like him enough to buy him, let alone all three of these. I already have all the WFC figures anyway.

I'm not sure I will pull the trigger on the WfC 3-pack but I'm really liking the Arcee. The Jazz mold is still crap. I'll pick up Leadfoot and possibly Unicron since I do not own that head yet.

What's the price set/release date for the WFC 3-pack? I guess I'm gonna have to go out and hunt for Soundwave now if I'm gonna go for this... ;) :lol:

WFC 3-pack - even more Tron-tastic than before!

I would consider getting it if it contained Soundwave rather than Megatron. Of all the retail exclusives so far, Space Case is the only one for me, and he's a must.

If it had Soundwave included with it, I would still get it. I really want these guys, but never got the time/money to get them. :-(

OK, sorry for my laziness but I don't want to read through all the pages here. I know Rodimus is the talk of the town but Unicron is what I'm interested in. Any info on a price point and release date for Unicron?

Hasbro's version of Roddy isn't bad what with the extra paint apps (especially on the legs) and the targetmaster, but I'm not so willing to get a second one.

I am so glad I never splurged on the Takara 2010 Unicron.

Nice transparent cannon on Megatron and nice glyphs, but pass.

Hey! I'm lazy too. Only reason I didn't read through everything is cause it seems like no one is at each others throats yet and I forget if I replied to this.

To me Unicron is better than the Takara version. The paint job just feels more G1 than the other.

MP Rodimus will be bought by me.

SDCC Ultimate Prime is a must have for me. Mostly cause I don't have the patience to wait until October to get it at mass retail.

WFC 3 pack, I'll probably get it, but only because I love the WFC molds and have some strange desire to buy lots of plastic crack as of late.

i don't have any of these molds and since i acually like to repaint or atleast add detail to my figures i think this 3 pack will be great for me.

Not interested in the 3-pack at all cause I already have all that 3 and the repaints are meh compare to the original. The alt mode glyphs on optimus looks terrible,the yellow neon on Optimus is weird,I dont like the clear purple used on Megs cannon and why the f**k they change Bumblebee's blades to light blue!?So even if I dont have the original 3 I would think twice before I buy this set...
