Do you have Soundwave? I vowed to only get one, but ended with Soundwave, Blaster, and Soundblaster. Yes, I know that makes me a bit of a sucker. But it really is a great mold even it if it's a bit large. And the data disc gimmick really is kinda cool - a nice homage to the originals.
Just my $0.02
I concur. I have all three, plus the WfC Soundwave. It's kinda cool to have Soundblaster in vehicle mode, WfC in boombox mode and Soundwave and Blaster in bot modes. Blaster looks great! I love how the chest pieces look.
Now, the data discs are a cool concept, but are not executed very well in Steeljaw and Ravage, in my opinion. Ravage doesn't fold up for me. (I ended up buying another set to try to fix this.) and Steeljaw has a strange hump in his back. Still, the drop transformation gimmick is pretty neat. And the data discs look great in the purple cases.
So, when considering the merits of joining Va'al or Burn, I have to say that Va'al's obsession with Alpha Bravo is so awesome in its own right that it all but made the decision easy.
But, Burn has a stinky Whirl...Banner image shamelessly stolen from Tyberion's signature...
