Both sets look super sexy.

I love the clear purple plastic on Galvatron and Cyclonus and the clear blue on Rodimus and Scourge.

I much prefer Kup in his bright blue compared to the more movie accurate general release grey colour he has in RTS and United which is rare for me as I normally go for the most G1 accurate looking figure. :BOT:

Will I shell out all 16,000 Japanese yen on these guys?
Probably not because there really isn't much purpose to the release - Ghost Starscream fitted in with an actual G1 storyline, I think Rodimus kind of went blue for one scene of one episode (I might be wrong) but the 3 Decepticons although they look fab, are just clear for the sake or being clear. :CON:

Junkion is a cool idea though wish they had done a little more remolding with him than just his head.

So.. the decepticon set is supposed to be megatron, thundercracker and skywarp being reformated?
and the prime killer is supposed to be a reformating by the autobot matrix?

autobot set is junk, rodimus is silly looking, Kup is so close to the original united fig it isnt worth mentioning and scrap heap will be all over ebay on his own eventually.

the decepticon set is awesome though, especially to keep MISB. Nice tip of the hat to their transformation by unicron.

Those are really nice. I'm liking the clear, 'being transformed by Unicron' set, but the Autobot set, it's nice too. That Rodimus is supposed to be him becoming Rodimus Prime right?

Kupp is alright, and the Junkion, well, one has to see the head before passing judgment on him.

Cyclonus didn't have a targetmaster when he was reborn, while I like the Targetmaster, him having it doesn't fit with the theme. Him not having it would have pissed a lot of people off I guess. Aside from that they look nice, but they should have done Rodimus' spoiler in the green metals too.

The blue hot rod looks really cool, but not worth getting stuck with the other 2. The scratches on Kup look wack. And these fools are playing "top secret" with the junkion's damn head. I hate when they do that crap. Now the Decepticon set, thats another story. Im not a big fan of crystal unless it has a purpose (ghost Starscream, teleporting Skywarp, etc.) but this set looks too good to pass up !!!

We don't know that for sure, it could be a remold which is why they are keeping it so secret.

But over all I really dig the Autobot set.

I like Kup, but he is a bit blue, I'm really interested in the Junkion, and I even like Hot Rod, even though I usually don't like clear figures.

It's that same distaste for clear figures, that will keep me from the Decepticon set. If they were repainted partially in color, and had the reformatting lines ... that might sway me, but they are just not my cup of tea.

You call that "Battle Damaged"? I was expecting 3 1/2 wheels, a shattered windscreen or some semi-melted armour. This is a tad pathetic. The other five are all quite tempting.

Not my thing. I want the best representation of the character. This set represents a brief moment in the movie where they were a different color. I am not going to buy a mold that I already have to represent 2 minutes of the movie.

Wow... I never thought it was possible for a translucent release to look that bad. Rodimus looks frigin' hideous in those colors! And a brown faceless junkion... eh, just seems to generic for an eHobby release, and even if it wasn't I probably wouldn't care. Talk about making exclusives unappealing.

Definite pass.

I looks like they changed the look of Scrap Heap's head from the first teaser pics to this one that you can see in the artwork. His head looks like it has a shield on it.

Weapon: Fusion Cannon
Well, I pre-ordered both sets no question. I like the blue Clear Henkei Rodimus goes along with the Blue Sideburn. I like it now I can use him instead of buying Henkei Wildrider for my Shadow Scythe set.

I think the real star of the autobot set is Kup. I don't know what the United version will look like, but this sets Kup looks too awesome to pass up.

I wish the decepticons had solid colors. I think they are going with the whole reformatted transparent look when they were being reformed by Unicron.

Price, well this is E-Hobby you know. I paid through the nose for there version of Astrotrain alone and that when it was out.

So there goes a chunk of my bonus to reserve at the end of the year.

Isn't the blue Rodimus just supposed to represent the moment in the film where he touches the matrix for the first time after Prime's death.

It's a figure accounting for about 2 seconds of on-screen time.

I'm sure it's just coincidental that it shares the colour scheme of one of the only other TFs to have a spoiler as vulgar as Hot Rod's. ;)
In the scenes being refered to in the movie Hot Rod was just bathed in blue light, he didn't turn translucent or have glowy green parts.
Regardless, you can call him whatever you want. He just screams Blaze to me.

Postby craggy » Mon Dec 13, 2010 12:20 pm

i'm mighty conflicted about this lot. The Decepticons look nice, but not nice enough for the money, tbh. Mainly because there's a Galvatron in there. You reckon that for photography on that toy they just spend a few hours before hand cutting and glueing one into vehicle mode?

The Autobots though... :shock: :grin: :x

well, the Junkion looks pretty awesome. He's so Genericised! Rodimus, while not a figure I'm a huge fan of, is wowing me with his shiny. Kup looks bloody fantastic, but he's also really bright looking and wrong somehow. I like it! G1-toy deco as opposed to the cartoon deco we've got on the single release. He looks new, and old.

Again, though, the price is kind of off-putting. I could get 6 deluxes for the price of one of these sets and still have change. Hmm...?
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.
