So I guess this means that Superion will be using the same joint connections as Herc? Weren't the shoulder joints an issue on Herc?

Yes, it's going to use the Energon Connectors. There have been reports that people have had some issues over time.

Wow. I'm liking that Silverbolt. I'd like to see either the G1 mostly all white or the white with black highlights paint scheme. He looks really badass in bot mode.The chest shield looks really odd, though. Maybe there'll be an add-on pack with something different. I like that the cockpit turns into a gun. It would have been some odd kibble if it didn't.

For some reason i just can't get excited about this project. Don't get me wrong...it's totally awesome but i'm happy with my crossfire Superion.

But when someone start a Computron or an Abominus......THEN i'll be excited and more than likely start losing my **** with excitement.

It's the 700 hundred dollar price tag on this fugure (after shipping) that is a MASSIVE turn off for the likes of Herc and Uranus. Just can't justify it.

$700 ? Are you having it shipped to the moon ???

4 jet limbs = $400
Silverbolt - $120-150
BBTS Shipping $12-15 (USA) or no more than $50 anywhere else in the world

Am I missing something ????

Shipping for individual figs, customs fees, etc... It's quite possible... Guy is from Canada. It should be cheaper if you buy and ship the whole set altogether.

Don't forget the "Furious Uranus" upgrade to fix the arm proportions & stupid gun, the CrazyDevy head because TFC put a faceplate on Superion, some Shapeways leg-extensions because his thighs are too short & some paint for them. That's all about an extra $150...

That whole 'foot as a stand' thing is a very nice idea. I wonder if the hands can be used in a similar way on the 2 arm bots?

TFC is really outdoing themselves this time. Color me seven shades of impressed. Shame I can't find a place in my collection for these. The foot-stand idea is an excellent touch as well.

Good show, TFC. :APPLAUSE:

Wow... while I probably won't be buying the set, I'm tempted to just pick up the F-15 as it looks wonderful.

That looks like a really thin connection for Uranos' ankles... makes me nervous just looking at it.

I believe he means should he wait to hear reviews of the first run before ordering, or just preorder now and ride out the storm like I'm sure most people are. I'm in the former category, and I'm hoping that by waiting I can order the entire set at a reduced cost like some retailers did with Hercules.

I will say that these teaser pictures are making it harder every day to not click the little button right now.

You hit the nail on the head. The first run would be awesome, because you get them sooner, though there is always a chance that you run into the quirks/problems sometimes associated with first runs.

I was thinking the same thing about some retailers doing a bundle set at a reduced cost as well, and sometimes shipping it all in one large box is cheaper than 6 smaller boxes.

But like most people, the more I see, the more I want it NOW. Too bad Christmas is so close.....

Based on my experience with Herc, this is less of a concern with me. Sure, there were the hip and the shovel problems, but TFC addressed them for us and provided replacements at no cost. TFC seems a top notch outfit.

I'm struggling with spending another $600 so soon after Herc. I love Herc. I think I'd really like to have this. So far they are beautiful!

Anybody want to buy my movie TF collection? Or a kidney? :-?
