    Just got these two in from Hong Kong today, I have to say I love em, especially Gunbarrel. The colors are fantastic and it's my favorite Energon Combiner Limb. Thought I'd throw these up here for you guys to check out:

    If you can find them, I highly recommend them, especially Gunbarrel. I thought it was interesting that they both came with two sets of instructions. It might be that these were just hard enough to find that I paid way more attention to everything in the packages and that normal release figures come with two sets these days. But each one came with one regular paper Spanish version and one glossy paper English version. I dont really want them, so if anyone wants the instructions to these guys let me know and I'll send em your way.

    Joints are nice and tight, no mold deterioration that I can tell. These guys were made before the ROTF Bruticus set so they should be better in mold quality than them.

    It makes me wonder if they had any more planned Energon Combiner limbs for the TFTM scout wave 6 line.

    You're the third person I've seen with these in a week's time.

    If you don't mind my asking, where did you get them? :)

    Same here. I really want to get these, but that site seems really unaccessible for non-chinese speakers.

    Anyone wanna help me out? :p

    I've been watching this since zealot first mentioned it a couple weeks ago. Whenever the seller (mcholl) runs low he has been adding more so he probably has more then just the 2 in stock for reverb that's currently listed. There's also at least two other sellers on the site with the figures. I don't know where my links to them are though. . .

    This is exactly what I did.

    Update:
    So I dug through some old save points on my drive to dig out the order form I used for Taobaodirect which had the urls needed to order these two guys.

    Here they are:
    Gunbarrel -
    http://item.taobao.com/auction/item_detail-0db2-4b7286035a5080b507c4c083d5eead11.htm
    Reverb -
    http://item.taobao.com/auction/item_detail.htm?item_num_id=4833862380
    Backtrack - I didnt have any interest in him, so I didnt order him, so I dont know, you'll just have to dig through the seller's other items for sale.

    And just so everyone knows, I dont speak or read a lick of Chinese and Taobaodirect was really fast and easy to use. Just follow the instructions they give you.

    Ok, cause Im so nice, i dug through his stuff for you:
    Backtrack -
    http://item.taobao.com/auction/item_detail-0db2-402f4469db3dda8d396a37887af2ad77.htm

    Good luck and happy hunting.

    Submitted my order through TBD.com. Should be ~$45 for the pair.

    With all of these suddenly hitting the market, one wonders if Hasbro didn't just give up holding on to the quantity they'd already produced and do a backdoor release in China... I mean - these are going for ~$5 over there, and all of the sudden everyone seems to be able to get ahold of them...
