    You can see the pics here. This fine set is exclusive to North America through BigBadToyStore.com here! Sadly, it's ALL SOLD OUT... no, I'm kidding it's still available... for now.

    I see that Overbite is still pink. I thought Hasbro were going to fix that before release.

    Sadly I had to cut back my order of this guy a little bit with all the other good stuff that was announced. He looks fantastic. I am starting to get G1 combiner fever. I think that is my next task once I knock out a few more Henkeis and MPs.

    The box art is pretty cool. I've preordered one, a birthday gift from me to me. Thank you. You're welcome.

    I can't believe how tempted I am by this set, even tho I already own a complete vintage set. I think it's just the minty appeal, and that it's awesome!

    What a beauty! I can't wait to get my dirty little paws on that set!

    Love to see these guys come back, they were the best G1 combiner.

    I've seen pimples prettier than that ugly mofo. The fact it's G1 and a pretty expensive combiner I'll get it, but I'll keep it locked up somewhere so I don't have to look at it :)

    Indeed. By far my least favorite of the G1 combiners, both as a kid and as an adult collector. Nondescript 'animal' modes and a messy-looking combiner mode.

    Didn't stop me from preordering, though. :lol
