    I recieved an email from TFsourse saying they had sent me these instead of the Blitzwing repaint I had ordered.(Blitzwing will ship tomorrow). They said I can send back the wrong item at my convienience.

    My question is should I just keep them (and pay for them of course $45) or send them back? I am lacking Insecticons in my collection, but just wonder if anyone else has ordered these and what they think of them.

    Lacking Insecticons?!?! Blasphemy!!! These things are great! I have 2 sets and I need to pick up some more one of these days. They're colored like the old Diaclone toys, which makes them even neater, odd names aside. And they come with Energon cubes!

    I'd rather buy up an army of the TFC release so they'd be in cartoon colors. Funny how this ( and Blitzwing ) was backwards. Usually the ehobby version is rarer and higher priced....

    I'd keep them. I have the Blitzwing repaint, but not the Insecticon army. Yup, I'd definitely keep them.

    I have had something similar happen to me. A company sent me the wrong item one time and they told me to just keep it for free. Of course I never received it so I don't know what happened there. I did get the correct item though. If you want them, contact the store and just buy them. If you don't really want them, send them back, but I hope they are at least paying to ship them back. It was their fault after all.

    I bought some stuff from a hong kong seller on ebay. He sent me the wrong thing, but then sent me the right thing. He asked me to send the wrong item to a different US buyer and they paid me the shipping charges. I did it to be nice.

    I'd keep them. I got them along with the E-Hobby Blitzwing so I could order my lucky draw and normal WST G2 Grimlock. I like these guys as much as the show colour Insecticons.

    I'd keep them. I have them and luuuuuv mine. Granted, they look best when standing alongside cartoon-colored Insecticons, but they're pretty darn cool on their own, too.

    Yeah, the colors were really my only point of debate. But since the feedback I am getting is positive regarding that, and taking into consideration the deal I feel I am getting since, like you said, the e-hobby repaints are usually more. I am going to keep 'em. Even better since the vendor made the mistake, I will not have to pay for shipping either, so that's a bonus.

    Thanks all, I knew I could count on the folks here to convince me to spend more money. :)
