    Not bad...but my first instinct is to say the Henkei decos are slightly better thought out.

    Just those 3? I thought there was only a pack of all 6 on the market. Probably the only way I'm going to be able to get Skywarp, which irks me to no end.

    Dont' look too bad, not sure about the purple null-rays for Skywarp.

    Edit: I NEED THESE.

    B-b-but I just need a Skywarp and Ramjet to make them complete. :( 

    (and Acid Storm, but nobody cares about Acid Storm)

    edit: lol, the Starscream already has chipped paint near his vents.

    If there is a conehead set as well, I may consider it for uniformity...

    But this set screams 'almost Henkei' at me, and I already have the three actual Henkei ones.

    Transformersasia.com has the pics up, as well as the release date - 12/21/2012

    Loving the metallic finish, sort of gives it a similar feel to the United releases.

    From the looks of it, they might split the set into two, with this one being set "Ace"

    They do! It's a nice look thats not the overly shiny look of Henkei, and also not the plain plastic look of Hasbro. I think I might need to go look for a United Megatron and ML Soundwave now :lol

    Interesting. I'm not against it yet, will have to see what the price turns out to be and see better pics. They should have done something to break up the color on the launchers and missiles, being all one color makes them look like a KO. Not having a shoulder stripe in a spot that's molded for it is annoying but not important, hopefully we get better images soon.

    Funny you say that making the color on the launchers/missiles the same one makes it look like a KO, when it's simply following the look of the characters from the cartoon, which I think is what most people are after with Classics figures. Same goes for the shoulder stripes moldings.

    They still have too many paint apps! And the launchers on Skywarp don't match. Pass.

    Eh. This 3-pack is 6 years too late. They should have released it during Classics 1.0 back in 2006-7. Give me a Classics Sunstorm - that's one repaint I'd be more than happy to buy. They can take this 3-pack & shove it up their a#%...

    Lulz at all the whinging.

    Hasbro could pay everyone 50 bucks to take them, and there'd still be someone complaining about it.

    Exactly. As a Seeker fan, I am all about these guys. I initially wasn't too crazy about Skywarp's null rays, but the paint apps are winning me over.

    And how can they have "too many" paint apps?

    They re release figures sometimes so people who may have missed out have another chance at them. It's not because they like screwing with people who already have the mold. It's not all about you.

    And I can't believe someone actually complained about too many paint apps.

    Paint apps on the knees instead of the vents. Uneccessary paint apps on the feet... It looks like Henkei v2. The worst part is the sloppy metallic paint job, the Starscream they chose to take a pic of has a chip on the chest. Obviously Takara doesn't take pride in the crap they sell.

    I may get this set for the launchers if they match classics 2.0 SS and Henkei SW and TC. The GDO seekers themselves are going to be crash landing in my son's toy box.
