    Anything interesting product leaflet wise?

    Or did they just throw in the same one as the North American version?

    The comic's different to the US version - it comes in six languages! Basically the comic is in two halves, and each half tells the same story, but the speech bubbles are all in three languages. Same thing happened with the comic included with the Animated jet twins.

    As much as I'd love to have that Cyclonus, to become part of his Armada, I already have Rodimus and I'm not paying for a figure I have no use for.

    Still, pretty sweet that we've got it.
    Hopefully Lugnut will be in stock soon as I'm tempted to get him.

    Cyclonus is now 'His Armada', Rodimus will be displayed in vehicle mode as I quite like the colour scheme. I'll probably put a chain on the Matrix and hang it around Universe Galvatron's neck. :D

    The only reason I would buy that set is for the matrix, as I already have the Challenge at Cybertron 3 pack. Anyone want to sell me their matrix..? :eek:

    Give the Matrix to Generations Thunderwing to hold all victorious-like.

    I am so glad I got the US version then. I can't stand the 3 language thing going on, it's just descriptive and shows nothing about the character, I binned the twin two pack comic simply because of that.

    Picked it up in an Argos in Glasgow today. Cyclonus looks great in these colours; not quite so sure about Rodimus though. Maybe the colour shceme will grow on me. Nice to have a Matrix to put in Hyena's Comm. Series G1 Prime though. :)

    And I appreciate that :) 
    It is a nice set. Glad we were able to grab it, I think it was the last one they had in stock.
