    I just saw this set at a local TRU, and at first I thought I'd love it. A Voyager Ironhide without the lightning decorations of Recon Ironhide, and Bonecrusher, who I never thought I'd have a chance to get (even if I'd much prefer a Leader). Looking at the pack, though, Bonecrusher has some ugly battle damage (half a black face like Leader Prime with hooks) while Ironhide's colour is blue rather than black. His face also seems completely unpainted like a KO version, although he has a couple of very striking and nice blue eyes. So I'm, well, both underwhelmed and excited about this. Should I just get Recon Ironhide and a Deluxe Bonecrusher on eBay, or wait for the next film and see if we get a nice HA Ironhide (and hopefully a leader Bonecrusher, or at least Voyager), or get this one? Has anyone gotten this set and what do they think?

    I got the Bonecrusher months ago and dig it.The battle damage is kinda cheap but the lighter colors are good.

    Yes, please post some pics. Bio on the back would also be helpful for archiving in resources.

    I'll try and get some tomorrow or the day after. Do TRU allow us to take pics of their stock in the shop?

    Oh crap, is this set out? Goody, I really want that Ironhide for a custom. I honestly wish it had been somebody OTHER than Bonecrusher in the set but I guess I could make retcon him into ROTF Crushboner.

    Wait, this is news? My TRU (which normally has next to nothing) has had several of these sets for the past week or so. I didn't think anything of it.

    Me neither.. I didn't think that it was something really new which everyone would want pics and all - but I'll try to get some if others don't do it first.. :)

    Wait, is this the set with the blue Recon Ironhide repaint? I didn't think that was out yet either, at least in the U.S. Do tell!

    EDIT: Okay, yeah, I just saw the news thread... so it IS the blue Ironhide. Still, I had no idea it was already released.

    I'm pretty sure it is. Wasn't it mentioned in that Q&A that confirmed that "Challenge at Cybertron" was an Asian exclusive.

    Edit: I assume you are Malaysian? I wasn't aware that they were released under TRU over there.

    I think it's an awesome set.

    I don't have either mold yet so I'll probably get it if it's a good price.

    Erm, I meant Wal-Mart. TRU had that Rampage set.

    I wasn't interested, and they were next to those Bumblebee and Brawl two-packs with the Legends. I think there was a Starscream set, too, with someone else... It was over a week ago. Again, they weren't something I wanted, and I moved on... IIRC, they were $32 or something. If I go back this week, I'll take a picture.

    I know, but we can dream!! The same way we can dream of Leader Blackout/Grindor.. I dreamt a few nights ago I got a Leader 2-pack containing Scrapper and Long Haul. Then there was a Voyager Rampage too. I was quite disappointed when I woke up!! :(
