Loving both Bruticus and Kickback's colors.

Wish Air Raid was called Fireflight. Why Hasbro? Why did you have to change his name?

Weapon: Overrider Rifle
As pretty as both of them are, neither version Air Raid looks like G1 Air Raid to me. Hasbro's release still makes me think Fireflight, and now this is more Skydive-ish.

Kickback, Bruticus, and Magnus are pretty, but after pre-ordering Fort Max I can't afford them. Besides, Hasbro's UM is fine by my standards, because as soon as I got FOC Prime my opinion flipped and now I realize it's actually a decent mold, and I'm getting G2 Bruticus. Also, I think Sideswipe's a little mis-transformed, but that mold's not the easiest to do right.

(EDIT) Actually, the moment I have the money, Kickback's mine. I was looking at TFwiki, and while Hasbro's is game-accurate, this is G1-accurate. And this has beast-mode eyes.

Air Raid is also the ood one out of the group as he's lacking the major metallic paintjob the others have. He just has copper on his weapons and chest. And the primary color is a matte black. What?! I'm definitely going after Bruticus and Kickback. Maybe Sideswipe and Magnus. But Hasbro's Air Raid is looking better than Takara's.

Thank you Takara for the metallic paint. Bruticus looks better than my SDCC version.

This so much! Air Raid was one of my favorite Autobot characters in WFC. Why did Hasbro have to do this and give him a toy based on another Bot? #-o

Lovin Kickback. Sideswipes head sculpt is really well done and i'm actually somewhat impressed with that Magnus.

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Starscream and Kickback are all I can afford, after pre-ordering MP Soundwave and Sideswipe, as well as a truckload of HT figs. Gotta save my pennies for the MP Cassetticons too. ;)

Bruticus: better colors, although Vortex still has too much red. The individual figs have too many issues (Onslaught's horrible shoulder articulation) for me to buy the set even if I had the spare cash.

Voyager FOC Soundwave is tempting, but it would be a little redundant, seeing as I already own the WFC deluxe fig. I'll have to think on this one.

Anyone else think that the mold for Magnus was designed with him in mind and then Prime was shoe horned into it? Works so much better as Magnus than Prime I think.

I wish they would put Laserbeak and Buzzsaw in their own two pack. I need Classic versions of them but I don't want to get another Soundwave when I already have the deluxe WFC version

Black and red are Air Raid's colours. To be Skydive it would have to be black and grey. This version looks sufficiently Air Rad-y to me.

Which really makes me sad to see that it isn't Fireflight. :-(

Well the Hasbro version can "be" Fireflight. To be honest these are Aerialbots made from Shockwave repaints so colour inconsistencies are not the worst of their accuracy problems.

Also that giant weapon that comes with Sideswipe makes me feel even more of a mug for buying Jazz.

Shiny Bruticus is niiice. However, at the cost of Takara figures, I might as well have bought the SDCC version. So I'm stuck with the Skittle-colored Hasbro retail version.

Same goes for most of these, probably, though Starscream is mighty tempting.

No brainers, already have SDCC Bruticus, and all the others will be mine except Soundwave, I'll get Soundblaster since I got deluxe wfc soundwave. But I'll get the hasbro versions, SDCC cost me enough not to buy any takara the coming months.

I mean, I don't want either version to be released as Air Raid because they're Shockwave remolds. I want an Air Raid that looks like the game model, but with them using this mold instead, it diminishes the possibility of us getting one. :-(

assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
