I'm guessing that Masterpiece Sideswipe has overshadowed this guy's release, but I thought I'd start a feedback thread of his own. This is the third release of this set of figures, and the second to be sold in a giftset. This will be a fairly basic overview of the set with comparisons to the SDCC version (I don't yet have the mainline version) version. Short thoughts; I think that this is a very nice set, and excellent value - especially if you can get it for $60 (living in the UK I paid a bit more for mine). In general the only downside to the set as a whole is the sacrificing of some other paint applications in order to budget for the camo patches. I'll start with induvidual members: Vortex: Rather fetching blue and purple colourscheme. In robot mode camo shows up on legs and shoulders. G2 Decepticon logos on sides of helicopter fuselage/robot arms. Blast Off: Very bright white for Blast Off, so apologies if he disappears into the white background. Very little of his camo is visible in robot mode, but the combination of white with a dark colour gives his shuttle mode a slight bovine feel. G2 logos on his shuttle wings/robot legs. Brawl: Brawl seems to change the least between his variations. His green is bright without being neon, whilst his guns are left black. He also shows best what I meant by missing paint apps; his entire thruster assembly is left unpainted. It doesn't look terrible, but I'd have liked to have seen some colour there. He has a G2 logo on the front of his tank mode, and another on his robot chest. Swindle: Swindle's new red look makes him feel very dark, not helped by his black exhaust pipes, black gun, completely black wheels and even a completely black head (besides his eyes, which like all the others in the set are orange). G2 logo is on the front of his vehicle mode/robot chest. It's also worth noting that I found his shoulders much easier to transform than the SDCC one's. Onslaught: Onslaught is Hasbro's 'brighter than Bumblebee' yellow that they save for special occasions. He also makes use of quite a lot of purple, and is probably the strangest looking in the set. He actually does quite well in the paint department, his wheels get yellow hubs and his front grill gets a fair bit of attention. Unfortunately I cannot get his arms (and by extension his gun) to sit flat in vehicle mode, which is a small point against him. For those not aware, this set is engineered so that any of the limb robots can from any limb. He comes packaged in the standard 'Blast Off and Vortex arms, Brawl and Swindle legs' combination, but I've mixed it up a little for these pictures. Burly arms: Burly legs comparison: Gentlemanly handshake: Or brothers in arms: If you like what you see from pictures of this guy, then I'd say go for it, but if the bright colours aren't to your taste I'd go for one of the others, he sears the eyes just as much in person. I like him though, maybe not as much as the SDCC version, but he's a well thought out and well priced exclusive. The box is worth a mention too, being a combination of inky black with an explosion of fluorescent colours and oddly proportioned artwork, it feels just like I'm back in '94 (only this time I'm not two. It's actually quite different to be honest). And to finish: THAT'LL TEACH YOU TO STEAL MY THUNDER!
