    Should make it's way to Ohio before too long. I'll look for it the next time Mrs. Spike and I are at Sam's Club.

    Sucks. The could have at least made some nifty repaints out of them, like, oh, say, red Rampage...

    The price doesn't look attractive at all... btw, I like it the Breakaway has to be mistransformed in the package.

    They're all deluxe class, right? They go for $10 a piece separate, so it's the same price.

    Sam's Club? Meh, the only two I really have any interest in anymore are Sidesways and Longarm (since Rampage sorta disapointed me when I've handled him and I already own Breakaway), and even then only Longarm for the actual figure. Sideways (who I've also fiddled with, very disapointing in that he's very hard to stand up) has the battle damage along with Longarm, but the Hoist repaint (who comes with that rather stupid-headed Mixmaster in the TRU set) appeals to me more, so I may actually pass on this set.

    This could have been a good set if they were all unique repaints. Let's see the same four molds done as (for instance)

    Longarm - a Decepticon Tow-Truck Drone named Heavy Load
    Sideways - Autobot Silverstreak
    Rampage - Red Rampage
    Breakaway - named Stormjet or Skyfire, in G1 Jetfire colors

    See, now at least it's original.

    Two repackages, and two minor battle damage redecos? NOT INTERESTED.

    Eh, nothing appealing about this set. I remember the set from a few years ago, the Yellow RID PRime and Black and blue RID Ultra Magnus. I just found those recently in my basement. Cool figs. These guys? Not so much....

    Erm. For all those who complain about Rampage not being red.

    Can you imagine the OUTRAGE if red Rampage was released as part of an exclusive four-pack?

    Based on the Walmart list from back in April, there's gonna be a red redeco of Rampage eventually. As a single pack mass release. So chill out.

    I wouldn't even havr a problem with a red Rampage being in a Costco exclusive 4 pack IF all four were new decos. The thing I find the most offensive is packing in exclusiv deco toys with toys already commonly released. This is the sort of thing we saw with Cybertron Voyager Vector Prime and Starscream 2-pack. Packing an exclusive redeco and a repackage together is one of the worst offenses a toy company can make in selling products, IMHO.

    HA! I can make the exact same comment in this thread as I just did in the Costco thread while just changing Costco to Sam's Club:
