    THAT'S COOL,however I think it would have been AWESOME to have all three in one big gift set. I'd get this, however I already have the original Japanese reissues of them from 2001 when they were released a toy show in Japan.

    Awesome! I pre-ordered them on HLJ, so I guess they'll start shipping them pretty soon :)

    If you mean "commemorative series" as the Hasbro release at TRU you would be wrong. At the least the missiles will be the correct size. Also the Encore series has had various painted details that were previously stickers.

    The shorter original length to the missiles and the faction symbols will be painted on. If they are anything like Starscream.

    Can't wait until these hit my pile of loot. I wasn't going to get them, but after making some inquiries, I sold my Commerative TC and SW for $70. Works out well, yes?

    Ah! Proper spelling eludes me apparently. Well honestly those differences are not enough for me to warrant the purchase, just wanted to check though.
