Thats weird, Takara didn't go for the box set?
They are available both individually and as a boxed set. A bit like how Magnaboss and Tripredacus were released as a part of the Beast Wars Second series.
....Safeguard giftset ^__^

Hmm I always wanted a 2nd set of these guys, maybe I will pick up the Takara set.
The shinier plastic looks a lot more balanced in the combined mode since it's both arms, legs and the chest.
ooooooohhhhhhh!!!!!!! I knew it couldn't be true! lol
They got some nice sparkly calves
Nice, shame the toys are the most disappointing of the animated line
If you play with these toys, you may realize, as I did that they are...
SUPER FUN AND AWESOME.
They are among my favorite unique toys in a great line. Just sayin'.
Apparently the distribution of metallic paint is for the benefit of the combined form, cause seperately, it's lower legs, chest, and that's it, in best 'Henkei random chrome' fashion.
I've never gotten around to opening my Jet Twins pack from ages back. I'm just not that excited about them. I think it's the blocky arms. And the iffy alt modes. And that both figures are pretty much the same. Certainly a couple of the lesser figures from the Animated line.
So, point to my post, they still don't look anything special here. Even with shiny disco trousers.
Maybe one day I'll open mine and change my mind though. Regardless, one set is enough for me.
Ditto. Now I just wish Hasbro wasn't afraid of chrome...
I remember I was pretty "meh" at the first images of the twins, but after looking at them a while found them acceptable enough to buy them (plus they were cheap here). Once bought I couldn't put them down, i fiddled and played with them for days, and it's still fun to change them back and forth through all forms. Even the combined starfighter mode is fun and customizable, they're just that fun. I still sometimes pick them up, like I do with so many of my other animated figs.
Thanks for the link!
The Chrome aps do look good, though I do like the Hasbro Color model quite well. It fits the show. Would like to own both ;D
Personally I don't get how often these toys are bashed by TFA fans. I'm guessing it's mostly by those who don't own them. They're so fun to transform back and forth. My only complaints are the hands could be more articulated (but most TFs have sucky hands, lets be honest). Also the hip skirts pop off, but that's okay).
They don't have a japanese version of the comic they were sold with in the US version?
