    I don't have it, but want it, and I say go for Superion while hes there if you really want one.

    I have the Energon version, I haven't had time to look for the movie repaint, but the mold itself is full of win to me & $30 for 5 bot's is a good deal anyway.

    Buy the superion set. But I will recommend you eventually get sideswipe.

    Well it will be repainted as swerve. So really the superion set is going to be a harder find in the long run.

    With the price increases across rotf. The superion set is a smooth value.

    Superion. Itl be better in the long term. Though, i'd recommend you get Sideswipe and Knock Out ASAP after Superion.

    Or, like me, you could get four Knock Outs...It's just that good.

    i've got the rotf superion, its worth it. each individual robot looks nice and they all have good articulations. overall i am satified with it. i've also ordered the FP add-on kit..its expensive but i think its worth it.

    sup

    I had the Universe repaints and 1 Energon mold, I formed Superion but, was not blown away, I am not saying G1 combiners were the best either, I'm saying there are customs that are better then the combiners Hasbro has offered.

    Can anyone take pictures? I saw the in package and official pics but would like tosee the new color scheme loose.

    already have the energon version, saw the repaint at zellers and nearly gagged at the the 60$ price tag went to TRU and got sideswipe, sideways, rampage and legends springer. Plus I got a nifty transforming pen! (oh and the guy in front of me bought all the deluxes the 2 leaders ironhide and scavenger so he got 2 pens :p )

    just got Superion, He's pretty cool. I seem to remember someone posting a pic where the energon version was posed without the weapons for hands and using the small robot arms or something. anyone know what i'm talking about?

    I might do that as well. Did you troop build any of the other scouts?

    Edit: I think I'm going to build with dune runner and ransack if when available.

    Superion's pretty worthless without the $45 add on kit in my opinion. It's very awkward looking with no real feet or hands, and has no real elbows which hurts posing ability a lot. Sideswipe, Rampage and Ransack or Knockout look way cooler than any one of the Superion bots. Just my 2 cents.
