    sorry, was getting cut off


    to get the Sideways Sneak Attack battle set?

    Applies to anyone having any of the three bike sisters.

    And what will you do with the Deluxe figures?

    No, I think I'm done with the bike sisters. After the major disappointment of the Elita-1 mold (Chromia repaint), the horrible "official" combined mode of the three bikes, and the fact that Hasbro has no idea what color/body type each sister is, I can't stand to buy into any more of these characters. I'll be passing on this set.

    yes definitely getting the set mainly for the zombie sideways but it will be cool to have 3 bike sisters in legends class also.

    mine just sit on the shelves ...the arcee that came with tailwhip is still in her robot mode....chromia and elita 1 are in their bike modes...can't bear to make that combined mishmash thing with them...they will probably all end up on ebay later next year with the next massive purge of transformer goods...

    i'm thinking seriously about purging most of my stuff aside from beast wars/beast machines and some of the current generations deluxe transformers...just too many tranformers stuck in one room jammed clustered too closely on shelves...

    I will be getting that set to replace the deluxe bikes. I like having at least one decent on screen representation of each movie character and those legends bikes are the way to go.

    Anyone want to buy my deluxe Chromia and Arcee? :)

    The Sideways Sneak Attack has 3 Legends class bikes, doesn't it? I'd get it, because I'm a scale nut when it comes to movieverse toys, and the Legends bikes fit into the 1/32 scale which Deluxe Bee/Sideswipe/Jolt/Sideways/Barricade, Voyager Ironhide/Ratchet and Buster Prime belong to.

    This. Zombie Sideways looks awesome and I'd really like to have all three of the bike sisters in legends size.

    I was going to get it regardless, even though I already have a Legends Arcee. Now if they'd just release that and the Megatron Rising set...

    No. The Chromia mold is such a large steaming pile of fail, that I cant possibly spend the $ for "Elita-1". At one time I was quite intrigued by the idea of the combined form of the 3 sisters (giggety), but after seeing what the possibilities of thier combined "form" is, no thanx.

    I'm with Wollstone though, that Sideways set is mine as soon as I see it. I like the Sideways mold, petite feet and all. (great job!) I'm digging the zombie vibe of this new re-color of Sideways, and since I actively collect and seek out all legends flavored TFs, the 3 bikes are just a neat bonus. Between the 2 bikes from HA Skids + Mudflap, the ROTF Arcee + Chromia dlxs, and the 4 different scout size bikes 3 from ROTF and one from HFD, I'm starting to amass a nice little battalion of motorcycle TFs.

    I haven't actually seen a Ratchet I like, so I don't know for sure. The Deluxe one looks nice, but it's way too small and has horrible kibble in alt mode. Hopefully we'll see a slender Voyager Ratchet sometime - the size should be about right anyway.

    I don't have a target in my town, so the set is outta the question for me nonetheless.

    Hasbro pretty much dropped the ball on these three at every turn.

    As much i like Arcee, it's an incomplete toy, Chromia smacks of indifference, and 18 months later i'm still ticked off that the Elita 1 was not only a repaint, but a repaint of one of the worst Deluxes turned out in quite some time.
