    This set is a little more boring that the Decepticon set because there's two same-character repaints.

    [​IMG]
    Bumblebee looks a little more movie-yellow.

    [​IMG]
    The head sculpt is similar to the small Kreon (and Kre-O) BB, who are based on Classics BB.

    Also, I hadn't noticed on the singles, but BB, Barricade, etc, have little faux bumpers/hoods sculpted on their chests.

    [​IMG]
    Black windows evoke a movie style.

    [​IMG]
    Prowl is the star. He's a repaint of Barricade. They've done a good job of differentiating the two.

    I'm glad to see Sentinel in solid color.

    This is a much more exciting set.

    [​IMG]
    Looks like Acid Storm's face is slightly different than Starscream's. His smirk traces the same line, but it's more open.

    [​IMG]
    Green! He's much easier to get into vehicle mode than Starscream.

    [​IMG]
    Megatron.

    [​IMG]
    With Legends ROTF Megatron.

    [​IMG]
    He's fun. The black is a bit weird. I'm not sure what color would suit him better. Megatron doesn't have as strong a signature color scheme like Optimus does.

    [​IMG]
    Nemesis. I was very excited to hear about him, but I'm sad at his blue head. It's just too Optimus. He looks like Optimus wearing black. I wish his head were black, or even purple like the box art shows. Anything but blue.

    [​IMG]
    Truck! The blue is again jarring. I'd like to see some teal accents. At least the windshield is a bit teal-ish.

    Can't wait to find the launchers!

    I will own that Decepticon pack. Acid Storm? Yes please. The little tank Megatron looks cool too. They did a great job with Prowl's deco. One can see the resemblance, but I wouldn't have noticed.

    More Acid Storm. He's one of the highlights of these two sets. Wouldn't it be great if they released the other two Rainmakers? Acid Storm's bright color is prefect. I'd like to see the other two with equally neon colors, like the cartoon.

    The Decepticon set interests me. Beyond that I may pick up Lockdown and Shockwave.

    I picked up the autobot one yesterday on a whim. I just love the little Sentinel Prime. I really like the head design and I hope the encorporate it into a larger more traditional figure soon.

    Prowl is love. So pissed looking.

    It is amazing how much detail they have in these little bots. The Decepticon one seems a lot better, but both will be purchased.

    I picked up these and the launchers, and strangely any time a character is repeated or re-deco'd, the stats change. The single carded OP has different stats than the one with the launcher, and the BB appears to be the same way. I didn't open my single carded OP & BBs yet (just judging by the one showing in the package) so I'll probly return those two.

    Wish acid storm had a different face like it appears thundercracker might, but hes still very cool. Great set, and only $6 with the $3 DOTM coupon!

    I picked up the Decepticon set today when I was out. I really like the concept and I'm sure my friends and I will have fun battling it out.

    I also played the game on the website, using Megatron from this pack as my personal fighter.

    Acid storm looks pretty weak with an opaque head and clear body. Strangely Nemesis looks the same way with a pure black body and an overly blue head. The autobot set is the winner IMHO.

    Picked up the Autobot 3 pack over the weekend and my 3 year old absolutely loves them. Their charm wore off on the 5 year old pretty fast. Oh, and they're a little bigger than I thought they'd be before I saw them in person.
