    Just picked up the 3 2-pack sets at K-mart today (Smoulder, Huffer and Searchlight), and saw a set each of both 5 packs at Myer. I plan on going to get one of the 5-packs, Bombshock or Skyburst, but i don't know which? Help?

    BTW, why are they (the 2 packs) still listed as Not Released in the Resources section? I got mine in an actual, physical store, so they must be out already...

    I would say Bombshock has the better looking set of limbs.

    Most people seem to prefer Bombshock but I personally like skyburst's limbs more.

    I like both Bombshock's limbs and central bot better...

    I have the Bombshock set and I really like it! I've only seen pictures of the Skyburst set and personally don't care for that one based on what I've seen.

    I believe the Resources section has them listed as not released because the U.S. hasn't had them in the brick and mortar stores yet. They've been released in Australia for at least a couple of weeks now if I'm not mistaken...

    Only since today in Perth afaik, though we're generally behind the East coast... :(  Then again i never knew we got things before the US, either. *shrugs*

    Hmm, i think i'll go for Bombshock and the Combaticons. If anything, the Aerialbots set didn't look much like the Aerialbots, heck, one looked like Ramjet...

    They're all pretty decent.

    Bombshock should be the first. Got a very G1 head and looks great.

    Skyburst is good too, but the combiner body doesn't look or feel as good.

    And remember, if you're going purely off of looks, you might like the inevitable repaints better...

    Wait for Double clutch and Mudslinger, they look sweet. I'm only going to get 2-packs though, as the limbs hold no appeal for me.
