    Preemptive reply: I think it's got great personality so far. However, I don't really like the Animated aesthetic, so I won't be getting it.

    -edit-

    So uh, I like 'em but I won't be getting 'em.

    I love it - best botcon set ever IMO but, as a UK resident I can never own it. Bloody great as usual.

    Like them, but won't be buying them. Cost, not going to Botcon, etc;...

    Just do what I am going to do, either get someone who is going to buy one for you, or buy one through the Junkion or eBay once the convention has ended.

    Not really into Animated, so not getting them. Now if it was a Constructicon set then definitely.

    Not bad. If I were planning to go to BotCon, I'd be happy with getting them as the attendee set, but I'm not interested enough that I feel compelled to order the non-attendee package.

    The set is so full of personality so far. I'm definitely getting this Botcon set.

    I love the set thus far. I'll not be able to afford the set so my feelings are moot, but I do wish I wish I could get it.

    I only have a chance of buying the set if Ultra Magnus is used for Motormaster. Hence, Option 2.

    Not that there's anything wrong with the set regardless! Kudos to them for surprising everyone.
