    Definitely going to get this. I love the Cannon Bumblebee mold, and Soundwave looks great in those colors.

    That set looks awesome, and I hope they do have a mail-away figure offer...as long as it's not another Bumblebee repaint.

    So many reasons for me to get this. I could use a second movie Bumblebee and the black Soundwave interests me a lot.

    If they have another mail away figure thing I will be VERY interested to find out what it would be.

    So does the mail away mean new figure, or repaint and remold of an existing figure? Or are they just gonna send out a bunch of Sideways?

    If this set has a mail-away offer, I swear I will have to get it. I LOVE getting stuff in the mail for some reason.

    Plus I need this set anyways for a multitude of other reasons, so I just hope Hasbro realizes just what a "mail-away" figure will require in terms of distribution.

    This 2-pack is pretty much at the top of my must have list. Really interesting to see that there'll be an exclusive figure offer. Hopefully the figure itself will be worth whatever you have to do to get it. I'm really hoping it's not another Bumblebee figure, though if it is, I may still get it, lol. Would be kinda funny if it was the Legends Constructicon figures. Whatever it is, I have a hard time seeing it being a new/unique mold, though that would be awesome if it was. It'll most likely be a repaint, maybe even with a slight retool.

    Edit: Anybody else find it interesting that they're calling these "Special Edition" figures? Would be really nice if that yellow on Battlefield Bumblebee was similar to the yellow used on Premium Bumblebee (aka sparkly compared to the other releases). It's nice to know about when this set will be available, and roughly what the price should be. I'm hoping this'll be available at Target. Everything we know about this set currently points towards it being a wide release, so I'm not too worried about it being a store exclusive, but at the same time I wouldn't be too surprised if it turned out to be one.

    They do say exclusive figure offer, so it'll be a repaint at the very least. Granted, it can be a very slight repaint and still be considered "exclusive". It could be a new mold, but I doubt it.

    Hasbro has already done it in the last year with G.I. Joe. They can handle it.

    My guess for the exclusive figure that everyone is all wound up about: ROTF Deluxe Bumblebee with a tiny little extra blob of paint somewhere on him. Or a random Legends figure.

    It's a cool concept, and I hope I'm wrong.

    The exclusive figure will be Deluxe Aveo Swerve, previously unreleased except through car dealers and that European deal.

    That'd be sweet!!

    My curiosity is piqued!

    And Indiana Jones. And several times in the last few years with Star Wars. They've all gone very smoothly.

    Really want this set, because i like the Cannon BB mold, but never got the regular one, and it would make an awesome custom as Cliffjumper. Also, i think i can make Soundwave into an Autobot. Plus, i like the extra NEST stuff. So, the mail away offer sounds good. Cross your fingers, maybe it'll be one of the Primes, or maybe Elita One. Maybe the last guess
