    Oh yeah, it's a great piece, just covering some of the things that caught me off guard.

    the small issue dont worry me, its nice to look forward to a set i can just mess around with, paying $250 for a vintage set would be managable (if still insane) but id be almost afraid to play with it!! I always loved teh look of the individual bots, my fave of the gestalts, just quirky and simple.

    Great review! Can't wait to get this set. $60 is a steal for a G1 combiner, it can't hit my Loot fast enough :thumb

    I assume the reason Overbite's purple was toned down, despite still being a different plastic color, is because they decided to homogenize the team's colors. Snaptrap's head makes slightly less sense, as the black was paint and not molded (I think?), so I guess it just got budgetted out. Though it doesn't look bad.

    Awesome review...I have a question about the colors though. I thought that this was the first time this set was being reissued in "the original G1 color scheme" according to BBTS. I did not have this set as a kid, so I am going by the review. It sounds like the colors are off compared to the original? Does "original G1 color scheme" refer to the cartoon?

    The colors are the same except for 3 minor changes. Unlike God Neptune of the TFCC set, which were a completely new deco across the board

    As for the balance problem for Snaptrap, I think he could do better with the turtle legs folded down.

    I do remember Skalor's fists being ridiculously tight so that's not a QC problem for the reissue.

    I used to have most of the set but I was foolish enough to sell it at some point. Definitely getting this.

    The only thing I dont like about it, personally, is the 100% preapplied stickers. Im sure printing the label sheets would of added some cost, but still ;;.
