More box sets are appearing, the newest composed of basic proportions. This will be the second time the 2007 Movie Blackout mold will be featured in a two pack, as an unchanged Voyager Grindor and an unchanged Voyager Desert Tracker Ratchet are what compose the Surface to Air Showdown 2-pack.

Re: In Package image of Fire Fallen, 2-Pack ROTF "Surface to Air Showdown"

It is unclear what store will have this two pack as an exclusive, however with no minor adjustments to the figures, it's clear that this box set is something that most people will miss out on.

Skyfall looks very cool. I passed on Silverbolt and Darkwind, but these colors really make me want to pick up the mold.

The two pack, would have been much more buyable if Ratchet had been repainted better. Making the black parts a smokey gray is not enough to warrant a purchase.

The Fallen: still not impressed.

They should have made it a voyager Optimus Prime and Grindor set, don't remember Ratchet fighting Grindor. Give Prime some hooks and it would be awesome.

Will probably get it. Why? I want a Ratchet replacement for my broken Rescue Ratchet and my broken Blackout!

Geez, Hasbro is sure catering to you. Mind breaking your Leader Buster Prime and Leader Jetfire? I wouldn't mind that in a two pack. :P

I wish they'd make a more interesting set.

Was there really ever a "Grindor" in the movie ??? I remember seeing a grey helicopter robot that looked just like Blackout. (Prime finished him off quick) And I thought this could have been that Blackout was revived with Megatron since the underwater scene was so unclear and quick...Does anyone else agree ???

Gladly. I'll make sure it is an exclusive, unreleased Premium Jetfire too! :D

Dude I cant even say how with you I am. It would be even better if they made Grindor's head come off and split in half. Then I would get it

Nope. Remember in the movie when there were a lot of generic Decepticons in the desert assault? My guess is they came from the Breeding chamber that ran out of Energon later on. Some had (adapted) forms similar to other 'cons, that's how the doubles of the Constructicons (and the rogue Bonecrusher) can be explained. Same goes for the Blackout lookalike Grindor.

Nah, Costco usually goes for something bigger. I call TRU exclusive, with a price that will make the figures sellable, something like $45 Canadian and $35 American.

I disagree. Other than Universe Unicron, TRU doesn't usually so straight repackages like this. CostCo's last two (Cybertron Prime and Wing Saber and Cyb Prime and Crumplezone) were repackages. Unless I've totally forgotten what store those belonged to. Which, after two gin and tonics tonight, is *very* possible. ;-)

EDIT: Right after I hit submit, I remembered the Desert Attack 2 pack with Blackout and Scorponok. But something makes this feel CostCo still.

Nah, TRU's exclusives are really slowing down here, and I just have a feeling that this will be it. Autobot Strike Mission has 4 Deluxes, and that's totally Costco material all over it.

I think Stike Mission is going to be Sam's Club based on "one slightly repainted" figure. Battle for the Cyber Planet Keys and Prime and Arcee vs Starscream are similar style sets.

Well I'm not going to lie, I originally thought that ASM was going to be a Sam's Club. I guess we'll just wait and see what ends up happening. I'm still hoping for a Costco Leader Prime + Jetfire... one can only hope.
