    Hopefully can get some of your opinions here. I read a bunch of reviews but still on the fence. Is this set worth the 120 price? Also thinking of grabbing the United WheelJack. Yay or nay? thanks yall

    I love my set and its funny how my opinion changed.

    At first, I loved the Bot's over the Con set

    Switched to Con's over Bot's once the Rodimus photo was released...

    In person, the Bot pack is clearly the better set in my opinion. I've got my Con set on ebay already, just didn't do it for me.

    Yay on the Autobot set. Take a good look at Wheeljack. I have both the United and the Hasbro, and while I can usually offer an immediate opinion as to which version I like better, Wheeljack is the first where I'm really torn between the two. They both look amazing on their own merits and if you're only going to buy one, it's tough to say which to go with. I think you'll be happy either way.

    Depends on if you want every figure in the set (of course, you can sell off the ones you dont want). I thought all 3 were great looking figures (I was on the fence about Kup, but ended up loving his color scheme) that each had something unique to offer

    I love it, Scraphead is awesome, Kup's color looks a lot better in person than it does in pictures, Hot Rod is my least favorite of the set but that's because I don't really like clear plastic figures.

    The Decepticon set seems better and is more United.

    Aye to both. Clear Rodimus is a beaut, worth the price alone for the Bot' set, while United WJ wins because of its superior paintjob.

    They look great but I just bought Scrapheap alone. I didn't need a clear Hot Rod and a shiny Kup.

    $120???? yeah why not. You should have preordered though. I got it way cheaper through Robot Kingdom. I only kept Scrapheap and Kup. Just sold Rodimus on ebay the other day.

    HAHAHA I'm guessing a lot of people should have gone with group buys. Would have been cheaper for a lot of people.

    You're better off buying the complete set and selling the other two figures separately.

    I was trying to help you and look online to find the best deal but there seems to be a problem. All of the major online retailers have sold out of the Autobot sets. You still get it from BBTS, but it's bundled with the Decepticon set.

    EDIT:

    After doing more searching, there is one option you could take. Yahobby has the Autobot set in stock for $119.99, but the shipping rate will bite you in the butt since they're in Asia.
