    Depends on how you define "worth the money" then.

    I used to own one, loved it very much & really improves the overall aesthetics of the Energon Superion mold. for some reasons I've alrdy sold off mine to a member here, but I might just consider getting one again once the reissue comes out next year...

    well for the price i dont think its worth it, yess it makes the mold better but for a big gun two feet, forearem attachments and a 4 little gunds dont think its worth the $100 tag

    ^ it was more than worth the original Price when it was under $50! That's when I got mine. Now though, I wouldn't pay what ebay wants for it honestly.

    I never thought so. Hell, I don't think the base combiner figure is worth getting.

    Whilst the improvement made to the base figure(s) is startling (mainly because the Energon Superion is such a dire combiner), in no way whatsoever is it worth what it now goes for on the secondary market. If there is a reissue of this set in the future I'll grab it at the original price, but not for £100+ on eBay/junkion.

    well it turned the ROTF Superion from a shelf warmer to a hot Item so there is some value in it, and demand seems to exceed supply so in that respect I would say yes.

    Hmmmm a Snow White combiner? I'd Imagine Doc and Happy would be the legs since they're the fattest

    Tentative release date for it is next year either in Feb/Mar.

    Nice, thanks! That's great news. I got one set for my ROTF Superion, but it looks so nice I later regretted not picking up one for the Energon version. Thanks Wan!

    EDIT: Ah, sold out already. Oh well. A re-issue will still make it easier to snag at a better price.

    Are you sure this is confirmed? Hearsay from shops isn't gonna cut it for truth. I need to see it either confirmed as a news credit to a board member or read it on the FansProject website before making hopeful people become hype beasts.
