    I wonder if Takara modified Swoop's flail so the flame spikes slide out

    Blackout looks decent, though honestly if he was a mass-North American release I really think I'd think he was one of the weakest Animated figures. It's amazing what unavailability does for hype/demand/wantingness.

    I would normally agree with you except that he's the last Animated mold I need to complete my pre-Wreckers.

    Impactor (Ultra Magnus)
    Roadbuster (Swindle)
    Topspin (Jumpstarter Megatron)
    Twintwist (Jumpstarter Lockdown)
    Rack N Ruin (Jetfire/Jestorm -> Safeguard)
    Whirl (Blackout)

    EDIT: And the fact that he has a bazillion guns. Bazillion guns trumps weak mold.

    I've got Grimlock on pre-order. Can't wait for him to arrive so I can place him alongside all my other Grimmys.

    It would be nice to to Finlay use that unused mold in the flail. I modified mine a long time back to slide in and out. Its a nice touch that should be used. On Snarl I am surprised that Takara didn't paint his collar black with the gold rivets.

    Me wantee Blackout.

    I was willing to wait for news on a US release of Blackout until I saw the comparison pics, not I vastly prefer the Takara version, but everyone is pre-order sold out... :(

    It's a shame that Snarl still has that uncolored lame club
