    Okay. Well that sort of makes sense. But I think overall, I'm skipping out on this set.
    I don't feel like spending the $$, plus I'm really not to crazy about half of the molds. I would want to get Strika.
    It would be a real shame if Megaplex came with that stupid mechtech weapon.

    Like the mold - hate the colors.

    Time to start the inevitable Botcon Megaplex foot swapping thread?

    I hope they intend on putting a newly sculpted head on this mold though. It doesn't need to look like Megatron's head (like the Machine wars figure) but it shouldn't be looking just like Dreadwing/Skyquake.

    Parroting the "yo Prime Dreadwing is cool but doesn't jive with the rest of the toys we've seen" song.

    Boring.

    This set is insanely expensive, and it's as bad as the worst sets they've done (worst I'd put as 2009).

    This is nowhere near up-to-par for $365. Very disappointed in FP.

    Big mix of mold origin's for this set. Still I could see a place for most of them in my collection.

    If I can get a set, Obsidian will likely stay in the box.

    I know that they are using the original paint scheme but by Primus that is hideous. It's like Hasbro decided to paint the figure instead of TFCC. How boring.

    Yeahhhh, it's a decent mold and definitely a surprise but The colors just look bad on it.

    I guess I'll just eBay Hoist and whatever of the other freebies or bonus figures I end up liking.

    Good toy but

    1) MUCH less cool than Jhiaxus from that mold would have been.

    2) Feel a little like it needs more paint.

    3) They REALLY should have saved a head remold.


    -ZacWilliam, and I repeat, much less cool than making that toy Jhiaxus.

    Honestly not a fan of this one. That mold might have been able to fit in alongside Classics if it had a new head, but as it is it really only works as a Prime mold. And yeah, of all the Machine Wars characters, this really would have made a better Starscream.

    And while this isn't the club's fault, Megaplex just has bland coloring. Bland coloring on a so-so mold with no new head just makes this reveal somewhat underwhelming. Sorry Pete, just my opinion. I know lots of people really like this mold, though.

    I can't lie, this is the figure I want the most.

    However, that is certainly because I don't have the mold yet.

    Still, I find it rather attractive. :)
