    Those are new paint apps on Swerve, Outback and Tailgate's heads.
    I might have to get this set now.

    Great job by TakaraTomy on the paint deco details on the heads. Amazing how the detail is brought out on these figures with the right touch.

    i only wish that the insignias and some of the sticker details had been tampographed onto the toy instead of being stickers (those which cover up screws are okay though). I'd have also given Outback painted side windows in vehicle mode.

    Indeed. Glad I preordered. But seeing them in clear detail makes me want another set just to open. :D

    actually they are quite nice.

    i have my fantastic japanese contact already order me a set. i was hoping for the more diverse collection set and hopefully they will arrive as an encore set later on. at least theres some extensive remoulding on some of those toys. i wonder how the box will be?? Im guessing perhaps like the ehobby minobots gobot set hopefully utilising the old G1 artwork. awesome nw face details, the toys look nice and neat also.

    So glad I preordered this set. Never had any of 86 Minibots. So they'll be new for me, even if they are repaints/remolds. Love the little details on Bumblebee as well.

    as these are mostly a new set of reissues it makes you wonder if they are from the original moulds???

    ie if takara decided to reverse engineer from toys, they would surely pick something a little more impressive- as nice as these are, so im guessing these are ready made, ie G1 original moulds, the date on the stamps should give it away unless there has been some retooling.

    jees, i just wonder how many G1 moulds are potentially reusable?

    hahah, i agree but you have 'opened' a can of worms here!!

    the only TF toy i havent opened yet is my wonderfest black convoy, and for good reason!!

    i understand people who get 2 sets, one to open one to keep sealed, the sealed ones do give some satisfaction but only next to an open one otherwise they are torture!!

    There are a lot of things that serve a purpose, but people choose not to utilize that purpose. Blinkers on cars, for instance. I will never understand why someone can't use their blinkers.....

    Anyways, if I opened this, I would want to keep the box. That means I would have to find room for both. I'd rather just keep them in box, to save space. They look just as good MISB as they do loose, imo.
