    Pictures took forever to load, even with broadband. Worth the wait. Beautiful work!

    Hmmm... I am slowly becoming more and more interested with each revision.

    Very glad they shrunk down the guns a bit.. they were WAY huge in the first pics that turned up. I haven't heard of any kind of resolution to the whole "random colors" issue that cropped up. Did that get remedied in some way?

    Okay... now those are looking tempting. Really impressed with the launcher system to create two styles with the same set of parts.

    Okay, so... Am I looking at this right?

    We'll get an all silver set (for Mirage)
    A silver black silver set (for Sideswipe)
    and a silver red silver set (for Red Alert)

    The way it reads, if you want both Mirage and Sideswipe to have their guns, you can't because there's only one set of silver parts.


    Just curious

    I like that the Ladder matches the Henkei Inferno so well but I do have a couple of concerns - I'd actually have liked the ladder in alluminum color for Universe Inferno to help differentiate the 2 even more, and I do wonder where I can store the water cannon now ?

    I like the launchers but They did raise some other thoughts - how about missiles that have a broad cuff at the base that matches the dimensions of Sunstreakers wrist cuff so you can put a missile in his wrist like the original 80's toy. and how about some vertical mortars for his shoulder rather than a missile launcher.

    A clear weapon set might be partially useful for the Generations book Liger I suppose.

    I notice that Takara rather foolishly didn't realise that Sideswipe should have retained his supercharger as it also functions as his jet pack in robot mode - so perhaps he needs a new jet pack ? I tried the THS-02 jet pack and it looks right but unfortunately does not fit.

    That still annoys me that they left that off.

    Since we are talking about weapons - what about Henekei/Classics Grimlock he's missing a few too.

    Or Animated Grimlock - I'm sure the Animated Dinobots could do with some extra weapons.

    On a general point how many of the people who have made a G1 style rifle for Classics Ultra Magnus (City Commander upgrade trailer) have also made the gun flippable so it can also be held by the plain white Magnus inner robot ? - I'm always mystified that feature of the original 1980's toy's gun is forgotten about.

    That's what finding someone to split the cost with you is for. I don't give a rats a** about the weapons or ladder but I'm not about to pick up the whole set when all I want is the AutoScout.
    Not that the weapons don't look cool. I think it's great that they scaled the size down to something managable for the figures even though my first personal choice is to go for the biggest gun I can lay my hands on (man I miss my assault shot-gun with hollow-point slugs), and I'm glad they resolved the color/selection issue with them. I just don't need that many more accessories to try to keep track off.
