Anyone else notice that on the bottom of the box's back, on each of their profiles, it makes them look like they have different weapons and faces.

Retools on the missiles and faces, perhaps?

Not really. Nothing more than showing off their weapons and light-piping. The United line has done that for every single figure separately, even in multi-packs. Take Windcharger vs. Wipe-out for example:

Why would Starscream's intelligence, speed, and skill be less than Skywarp if he is supposed to be a crafty lieutenant, fastest flyer, and highly competent warrior in the Decepticon army?

O come on, are they still keeping that G1 mistake intact?

Indeed, the first G1 Seekers had their Tech Specs switched around. Skywarp got Starscream's numbers.

I'm looking forward to these guys...I had the henkei KO's and I wanted to swap out for something for official.

I noticed the weird tech specs too...even if they weren't swapped it would still be off. Screamer's intelligence has to be very high, but courage very low...not real big deal though.

I would love to get the new ramjet coming out, but I don't really want to buy the entire 2nd set.

They sort of fixed the tech specs - at least Starscream isn't ranked below Skywarp anymore.

I also noticed that at the bottom of the artwork, you see a missile/gun pointing at Starcream and one of the "Seeker shoulder" art sticking out on the bottom. Looks like we'll also be getting a Dirge/Ramjet/Thrust 3 pack sometime soon.

Since my Henkei Ramjet is perfectly cartoon accurate, I just cant justify spending $130 bucks not to have annoying patterens on the wings of Thrust and Dirge. Plus I always hated the backwards faction signs, I like them facing fowards in jet mode and right side up in robot mode.

Urgh... $130 for both Aces and Elites...

But in regards to both boxes and sets of figures:

Sunstorm's more of a golden-orangish yellow than lemon/banana yellow. ;)
