    Hi guys! Just got this one in, however I don't know what they mean when they said:

    "This set will also include some other holiday bells and whistles that will not be revealed until it ships. TFsource is making every effort to get this set in before Christmas, but does not guarantee holiday delivery."

    All I see that is extra is some "Zero Hour" cartoon card that came with it.

    Personally, I feel like I got a dose of FALSE ADVERTISEMENT....

    Furthermore, I got information from a dealer at Frank & Sons that he would be getting it too. wtf.....

    Mine didn't even include the comic. :-( Definitely the least special of the TFSource stocking stuffer items thus far. Still, the white does look very nice on my Aerialbots.

    Yup, I can confirm that mine were this way also. No extra bells or whistles.

    That comic doesn't seem like "extra bells n whistles" to me. I'm a little disappointed with that. But I'm still looking forward to mine arriving. Both my Superions will have real feet and hands now.

    Has anyone asked them about the "bells and whistles"? Kind of feels like garbage.

    As far as the kit itself, it is decent, but I am not sure that I like the white version over their original release. For me the grey on the thighs (sp?) really looks off with the white feet. Maybe I will change my opinion of the set in the morning, but the white just doesn't seem to fit well for me.

    Well, I'm glad I passed on this. Like the idea of the white, but doesn't look as good as I thought it would.


    Also, no extras? Super fail.

    The lack of extras was kind of a disappointment, but I personally bought the set for what it was...not just for the "bells and whistles," which is what I've done every year with the Stocking Stuff item.

    I'm not sure that the lack of extra items was TFSource's fault though...I mean, they are just the vendor for the product...not the producer. So for those of you that are disappointed, shouldn't the blame fall on Fans Project? I could be wrong...I mean, I don't know what the deal was between the two companies.

    I think the set looks phenomenal, but only on the Energon Aerialbots. I like the silver paint applications and red highlights. I now display both Superions (Energon, RotF) side by side...which makes sense, because if you watched Transformers: Energon...Superion had a brother that was destroyed when Megatron used the super energon chamber...I even found a little transparent cube that flashes blue to represent the super energon:

    with either version, did anyone have any of the arm pieces bend when you tried to take it off? i made sure to do i slowly, and now one of the pieces has a nice little bend line on it. =[]

    its now gonna stay as superion. forever...

    Do you mean like a stress mark?

    I did notice that on the original darker set some stress marks appeared where the arm pieces fit around the little wings...but I solved the problem with a hair dryer.

    Blow some hot air on the stress mark and it will go away after a few minutes.
