    Nice pics. I didn't buy the E-hobby Junkion so I'm in the same group who's happy to get the new head here.

    I dig these cause it reminds me of Armada Sideways. A few modifications and it could probably work as Classics Sideways.

    The ironic part about this is that I'm watching Back To The Future while reading this review. Great job AA!

    Nice Junkions. I understand the whole Insecticon/Junkion theme... but does that mean Insecticons are nice, caring people in brown and orange colors?

    The Con's most controversial set. :lol 

    I love 'em, they were a fantastic idea to do.

    I do have a question though...that I don't think has been asked:

    How come the "Junkheap" version here has his original horns as seen in the instructions instead of the ones that Generations Junkheap was released in? And if they were able to release him with his original ones, why were they altered for the Generations version?

    I hate the whole SG theme, but I have to admit these look really nice.

    I was REALLY on the fence about getting these guys at the 'Con. In fact the first time through the store line I didn't get them. Glad I changed my mind. They are soo good!

    These guys are amazing! The use of all three headsculpts blew me away. The inherant interaction of the Junkions (riding each other) gives one a good reason to army build when they typiclly don't. The insecticon color scheme looks amazing on these guys. Their use in fiction was suitably creepy. My only regret with this set is the unholy scalping that's gonna happen with em. Since some "kind gentleman" decided to screw over everyone in line behind him Saturday by buying them all.

    I'm so glad I nabbed these guys from an ebay seller who was only trying to make a "couple" extra bucks on these, These are beyond a slam dunk on the part of the Botcon cre and may be one of thier best releases ever. I have these guys posed with my G1 insectisons and it looks SO good!
