    I bought the Autobot and Decepticon G1 themes. I likes 'em both.

    Only problem would be the Guide background for the Autobot one.

    Eye bleeding red. Very red very bright.
    Luckily I can make my Guide background different from my main theme. Unfortunately my eyes have not healed yet.

    Sweet! I figured there would be some kind of theme or picture pack for the movie, but didn't expect G1. Time to replace the crappy Ultimate Alliance theme I got a while back.

    If you're trying to compare what amounts to a desktop wallpaper to a physical product, then you sir, fail at analogies. If these were hi-quality designs, then I could see the justification. However, these things are so plain and boring, that anyone with basic image editing software could have done the same thing in a matter of minutes.

    The ability to upload your own background is something that should be available, and easily implemented. Forcing people to pay for what is normally something they could create in about 5 minutes time is the epitome of why I abhor microtransactions.

    You can apply your own backgrounds from your PC, but they don't change per individual blade.
    See my setup below.

    I am pretty sure that not all of the art is Pat Lee's -that Prime looks like Don.
    But, that Bumblebee with those ridiculous feet is definitely Pat Lee's.

    Yeah, these are microtransactions, and although I agree with Joe Moore, I somehow end up buying these things.

    It would be nice to get themes and gamer pics when you buy the game -even if it is the collector's edition or whatever.

    How much more time would it have taken the designer to include an Autobot or Decepticon Symbol in the blade?

    Fair enough. My laptop is a bit dated now, so hooking it up is out of the question. But since that ability exists, it makes paying for these even less appealing, even if they don't change per blade.

    Nice set-up btw. Samsung DLP FTW. :D

    There is a Download I think for Zune Connection crap on marketplace, that if you have it you can do all 4 Normal Blades, don't think you can for Marketplace yet.

    They sure are trying to get a lot of mileage out of those DW images. And out of the all the possible Starscream images to use did they have to use THAT particular one? I may get either one of the movie ones, but I'm not paying a single cent for overused profile art. Even if some of it does look good.
    I'll definitely have to look into how to upload a profile from your own PC. It'd be a nice way of changing the background every few times without having to buy more points.
