got these, with United Bruticus today. Fantastic set that works really well together. Swindle's yellow is much less garish in person, although the stripes on the back still bug me, they're also more subdued in-hand. Blast Off is cool, but I already had Flameblast (the white spaceship) so knew what I was getting. The Swindle mold is one of my favourite TFs I own now I think. Practically perfect. Cheeky wee grin on him as well.
The extra parts almost all work really well with the United bots. The feet/trailer extension for Onslaught is brilliantly colour-matched. The bits that add on the side of that mode, where the hands store, are a little off, but work perfect as the lower part of the Vortex arm, so it's excusable. The new colours for the guns are nice and solid, give any bot any of them and they'll look like they mean business.
The combined form is really something. The more G1 cartoon accurate colour-scheme breaks up the figure a lot from the mostly grey original, so that could be a bad thing for some, but I really like it. Reminds me of the original Scramble City gestalts, with it's hodge-podge of different parts, but they still come together to create an amazing whole. Highly recommend. I got stung extra for customs fees and still feel I got more than my money's worth on this set.
(oh and little Shocky is so cute!)
