    I really wouldn't pay any more than $30 for a two-pack.

    I like it I really do but for that price I got to pass, looking forward to the one that can hold the BFG though, that is something all commander molds could really use.

    Think I'm gonna hold off for the eventual G1ish repaints.

    I pre-ordered two, love the idea of dual shoulder Target Masters and having one with jackhammers and one without on display. Haven't been all that exited about the CC repaints, but SW could motivate a purchase if SC is re-released.

    Looks good but I'll wait for the red and blue repaints of this figure.

    Well this is good news. If BBTS has it for 36.99 that means most other places will probably have it for 29.99.

    So this was what most of us believed to be the Hasbro/Takara prototype of Classics Frenzy/Rumble? I totally forgot about this.

    Yeah, I have no interest in getting the shadow version. I really just want Frenzy and Rumble.

    The 'need two' for jackhammers thing is annoying, but I understand it's probably a production cost thing. Still, .50 worth of plastic seems like an easy include for the price each of those little snots are going to cost. However, it'd be hard to move as many units if people could just be satisfied with one.

    I don't care for the shoulder things for Shadow Commander. But that's because I never bought SC. I'm sure if I had one with depressingly empty shoulders, I'd be more interested.

    No, they're saying you need two to use them as shoulder cannons on shadow commander (one for each side)

    T hey will most likelycome with 2 piledrivers for each figure (as the gun mode needs both.).

    I'm pretty sure it will include two piledrivers. However, seeing that you would have to choose between having it as "Bluebot" or "Redbot" (FIRRIB, btw), having one with piledrivers and one without would make it possible to use two SWs as Rumble and Frenzy. Plus, the shoulder Target Master thing is completely 100% awesome.

    As Defender is a triple-changing deluxe sized robot with diecast metal parts for about $79 and Shadow Warrior is only slightly taller than Universe Nightstick but costs $25-37, I'll be saving my money. It's just too tiny for the cost.

    to be fair, Perfect Effect hasn't been around as long as FP

    You gotta also imagine engineering at smaller sizes is harder than engineering at deluxe-sized
