    Never thought I'd see Devastator get called a shelfwarmer after all the wailing and gnashing last year.

    Makes me wish I got the G2 versions to just to display all the boxes together like that. Maybe they'll keep dropping and go for really cheap during the holidays.

    Is this only giftset? Did everyone who got a Scattorshot get screwed? I still (purposely) haven't opened mine.

    yeah, i was in a TRU picking up some B-day stuff last week and swung by the TF section: they had 1 TM Clobber, a handful of RiD stuff (maybe 10-15 items) and a stack of Leader Skywarps. That was it.
    Australian Dollars.

    Wow, Aussies are getting screwed for the insanely high prices. $199.99 Australian converts to $153 U.S., still expensive for a CW box set.

    You guys are lucky, all we have here is 1 steppers and nothing else. The rest of the shelves and pegs are bare.

    When Hasbro decided to release Scattershot separately, the other Technobots were not an option yet. That's how plans sometimes change.

    I assume Takara's decision to design the Deluxe Groove sculpt was what made Computron possible.

    The two Scattershots are different. The single Voyager works better as Scattershot whereas the one in the box works better as Computron's core. It's to do with the placement of the colours in robot mode especially on the arms. They've tried to fake the red robot forearms in the boxset version with one side coloured red but it doesn't work with the need for them to be white for the combined mode upper legs.

    Want one to be in the middle of Computron? Get the boxset. Want one to be Scattorshot? Keep the single Voyager.
