Some collectors have been having a difficult time picking between Hasbro's Generations and Takara's United for three new figures, Kup, Scourge and Wreck-Gar. United decided to mix things up by giving e-Hobby two exclusive three-packs, one each for the Autobots and Decepticons. If you were hoping that the color schemes were different, you're out of luck as e-Hobby notified us that these three-packs would all have new paint jobs. Now finally we have photos to help you finalize or cancel your pre-orders on these '86 Movie themed sets! Thanks to Seibertron.com member gigasteam for the heads up.

The Autobot set contains Classics Rodimus, colored in clear blue and green metallics. Kup is mostly blue and teal in this 'battle-damaged' variant. The third member of this set is Scrap Heap, a brown and red version of the upcoming Wreck-Gar figure. He will also come with a new head, which was yet to be developed prior to the images being made. The Decepticon set features clear purple versions of Universe Galvatron and Cyclonus. Rounding out the set is a clear blue Scourge. This is meant to homage the scene where Galvatron's forces are created.

Of course, what would exclusive over seas repaints be without slick box art! Check out the images below! If you're in the mood for pre-ordering these sets, check out our various site sponsors: BigBadToyStore, TFsource, RobotKingdom or ToyArena

Love 'em all with the exception of Rodimus. He's so blue, he'd pass off for a replacement BotCon Sideburn. No offense to anyone out there. ;) :lol:

I'm still very much on the fence about both of these sets.
I like the Junkion, even if we can't see it's face, best. Then I like Kup: the battle damage suits him.
All the clear figures, however, don't really impress me that much. I don't have the Galvatron mold, but I haven't heard much good of it, to say the least. Cyclonus and Scourge are alright in thee colors, and of course they have great molds. Rodimus is alright, but I already own the 'Sons of Cybertron' clear Rodimus, so I don't really need another one, especially considering I don't won an original regular colored Rodimus.
Biggest problem is really the price... I'm sure these will all be very collectible in years to come, but the price is already pretty hefty as is.

Well this is going to be one greasy and expensive Junkion army building session. Not only will I be left with a bunch of Rodimus' and Kups, but this Junkion's head seems to have a Justin Bieber hair cut and Japanese text as eyes.... Oh wait.

One time around for United version at $30 each is enough for me. Dont get me wrong, these are awesome, but not at these prices, unless some other vendors sell them abit cheaper than BBTS which these guys are always pricey!

HotRod looks good as Blaze. Kup looks cross-eyed. Junkion looks like Muhammed. Want... but can't afford right now. :-(

Sorry but for the price these sets cost I was expecting so much more. The only reason to buy them would be for the Junkion however I am not shelling out all the cash for it and 5 toys based on a couple seconds of footage from the G1 movie. The colors on Rodimus' chest are totally off, why green?!? However, if the color scheme on Kup is the same as the regular United Kup, I'll wait for that one.

Hell will freeze over before I buy another Galvatron mold. How else do you explain why it was dropped from the Battle in Space set?

The Decepticon set is what's tempting to me. Although I love the blue Rodimus, I only like Kup and don't really see the point of the Junkion Warrior. Whom I'm sure we'll see a version of in whatever they'll be calling the Classics line locally. I don't really understand why he's even in the set instead of Wreck Gar or Blurr or even Ultra Magnus.

I'm a big Galvatron fan, so this is very tempting. And I've always felt the Sweeps could be more individualized than they were always shown to be. Ditto Cyclonus' Armada.

The price, however, is not very tempting. Still, it's better than iGear's Arcee figure, which I've been contemplating...

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.

Kup is too blue, and I'm not a fan of crystal. Too bad they had to censor Junkion's head. :( But I won't be buying these anyway.

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.

What is Rodimus supposed to represent?

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.

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.

Posted by craggy on December 13th, 2010 @ 12:20pm CST
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...?

From the first post: The third member of this set is Scrap Heap, a brown and red version of the upcoming Wreck-Gar figure. He will also come with a new head, which was yet to be developed prior to the images being made.

I don't think they're trying to keep it from us, it just hadn't been developed yet. So rather than misleading anyone with Wreck Gar's head, they just edited it out so you know it'll be different.

Thought about it for the day and preordered it. I already have two Cyclonuses and Galvatrons, but dammit, this is my favorite scene from the entire movie. And the set looks so, sooooo tastety.

Other than Hot Rod the Autobot set holds no appeal for me, though. Which is just as well, I suppose. As for why he gets a toy for the one second he holds the Matrix, well .... Ultra Magnus did too, so it's just Hot Rod's turn.

Literally spent the last 20 minutes with my mouse over the place order button at TFsource. The reformatted translucent cons were saying, "Either you sell out or we do..." I then realized this is an addiction; $130 that you don't have and here you are feeding your debt? No... plastic crack... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MOOOOOOOOOOOOORE, I SAY!

How does thinking factor into grown adults buying transforming robot toys? We all just want someone to coddle and cater to us while our childhood is raped over and over again. If anyone really thinks I'm serious here...Well, you'd be a silly goose now, wouldn't you?

Sorry, by thinking I meant, "How much more gleefully willing you are to piss away money on the same toy, but just with a different coat of paint for the 3rd or 5th iteration (hello Starscream)."

EDIT: That said, I still think these toy sets are totally awesome.
