    Meh, deco's not bad but the mold has been done to death now.

    Best looking one by far. Makes me almost wish I was going to Botcon.

    I don't own the mold so I'm really liking it.

    I own the mold, and I really like it too. It's the first figure we've seen from this year's that I've thought looked really appealing.

    Ooooh, I like that a lot! Nice new head, and great arctic camo deco. I'm actually quite glad it doesn't slavishly follow G1 Flak's color scheme (as U. Overload pretty much already scratched that itch). But with this head and deco, this is by far the best this mold has ever looked.

    So TWO Voyagers in the box set?!? Gotta say, that's pretty cool. And it really leaves me wondering about Thunderclash.

    Very nice-looking, glad to see he's not too similar to Universe Overload. Surprised he's the one to get the new head mold and not Thunderclash, though.

    Detour is 4-for-4 now. He's almost predicted the entire set.

    Looks exactly the way I expected. If this mold hadn't been released 2x already this year, I might actually be interested in it.

    :lol  No kidding, eh?

    Wasn't there already a micromaster Flak homage in the Universe line BASED of this very mould?

    I used to like this mould, but this is the only time these multitude of repaints have actually made me not like it anymore. (I repainted and modded mine into Hardhead) Ugh, even I make my eyes roll, sometimes.

    At this point, it's either going to be the suspected Energon Rodimus, or something off the wall like Kup was.

    Nice! I didn't buy any repaints of that toy, so it's still fresh to me. And getting that AND Energon Landmine in a box = me happy, I love those toys.

    This has definitely pushed the pre-reg set above 2005's, IMO. Still not as imminently cool as 2006's or 2007's, but possibly on par with 2008's.

    Im with you guys. I dont own this mold. I like the head and the color scheme although it reminds me kind of like TFTM Wreckage.

    I like it! I can't afford it, but I like it. Color scheme is pretty sweet. :)

    Even though I blasted the other molds, this one isn't too bad. Still not worth the entire box set, but not bad at all.
