    Sweet, that was one of my favorite molds from Energon. I wonder if the last limb will be the copter or if they'll go with one of the construction vehicles. Either way, I'm bettin it's the Barricade mold for the center.

    It'll probably look better with the transparent/translucent plastic. However, I'm still disappointed by the choice. Superion Maximus was easily the weakest of the Energon combiners, and he now accounts for 2/5 of this combiner. Disappointing.

    Haven't been too impressed with a single one of the combiner limbs...

    Agreed in terms of Superion having crappy limbs. :/ At least Breakaway can be made to have an elbow.

    On the bright side, I -love- this mold as a solo figure, and since it won't be in a combined form for about 2 years I'm not too worried. Though I dearly hope Storm Jet isn't tapped as the Year 5 toy. *worried*

    Shame that there's no remolded head, though. I'm guessing that intended feature on the membership incentive figures is out of the picture, now.

    Well; if you mean helping to keep people in the club, you're right as far as I'm concerned. It just isn't worth the money any more.

    I expected one of the construction vehicles. I like it, but it's suprising to see them go back to the Arielbots again.

    So what will be the full team?

    One each of the planes
    Tank
    (Crane or dozer to get a contruction limb in.)
    (Gotta be Barricade or Steamhammer, since 3/5ths Superion would be really dumb. With Steamhammer being rereleased in Classics, hopefully we'll get a new Barricade.)

    I kinda like it. I like that mold anyway, so that one will be a nice addition to the collection.
    Now, to backtrack and get the other two when money allows.

    I suppose that's my favorite of the limbs as far as being an individual figure goes if you don't count the Kickback/whatever his other name was mold. So I guess me joining and then not going to BotCon wasn't a complete waste this year. Though I'll likely do with this one what I did with the first one. Open it, say "yep," then toss it in the "later" pile.

    To be honest, I don't continue my membership because of these free figures. To me, they are just and extra bonus. I keep my membership so I get a chance to reserve the collector sets for $250 rather than paying $350 for them on ebay. Even with the price of the membership, I'm still saving at least $50 between ebay's added price and the sellers absurd shipping and handling.

    I love the mold, but each of the Energon color schemes are superior to this one IMO.

    Okay, so the Club exclusive Energon combiner with remolded members now consists of three direct repaints. :peoples: 

    I know the first one wasn't remolded because they had to get it out in a hurry. The second one wasn't remolded because they spent too much money on Botcon exclusives. What's the excuse this time?
