    Think it will happen? In other words - instead of trying to individually get Grimmy, Snarl, Swoop when he come out... and whoever else they make..

    Should I just wait and see what happens?

    Maybe they'll do a giftset for X-Mas?

    Peace

    Wishful thinking. It seems possible, but I dunno...

    Don't count on a giftset. Unless Costco picks one up for Christmas (unlikely, they'll probably go for a Bonus Value with a big figure), there's probably not gonna be one.

    Just track them down. They pop up occasionally in the Junkion (where I got my Snarl and have seen numerous Grimlocks)...*

    *Swoop isn't out yet so it hasn't really been sold/traded outside of Asia to the US

    i wish, but boxed sets are so uncommon... i actually managed to see snarl the other day but had no money to pick him up. (actually there were jazz and soundwave at the target, too. one each. i couldn't think of anything but that sweet plastic hanging on those racks for the rest of the day. damn.... i'm still pissed at myself)

    Given that Hasbro is releasing a box-set featuring three different Bumblebees, anything is possible. I'd be highly surprised to see any sort of widespread release if it does happen....most likely it would be some type of store-exclusive.

    But really....packaging three figures you can get currently buy in stores is pretty meaningless. I'd rather have a box set of the G1 Dinobots. Now THAT would save me some figure hunting :)

    I will buy it! I would love to see a new updated brontosaurs mold! I believe we haven't had a new one since G1/G2!

    I'd rather see a Starscream set with 4 straight repaints of Ramjet, Skywarp, Thundercracker, and Sunstorm, and a new Thunderblast mold.
    Wishful thinking, but maybe some Acid Storm, Dirge, and Thrust repaints as well.

    Acid Storm- Lazy
    Dirge- Clumsy
    Thrust- Gullible (believes anything he hears, which is why Thundercracker often stays near him)

    I must still be half asleep. I first read this thread title as "Animated bot sex" and thought, "what the hell is wrong with you?". Now I'm wondering what the hell is wrong with me.

    A box set is ... possible, I suppose. But really, would it have much of an advantage over the individual releases?

    the nearest thing could be sets that have scenes from animated with the human characters, rather like the movie diorama type sets. a 'dino island' set could be just about feasible but i wouldnt hold off buying the single bots as id say its very unlikely.

    I think if you see any dinobot box, it would be Animated Grimlock with Classics Grimlock, as a store exclusive.

    I think it is possible with only three, instead of five.
