    nah, not worth the money for a single deluxe and 2 legends. sorry but no. I'd rather have a white repaint of the mold released by itself or in a 3 pack, i plan to use this mold as Shockwave's Decepticlones.

    I love the Dreadwing mold, it's a drone & it works perfectly as a drone. Not sure what everybody else wants from it.

    But, I don't like how they stuck 2 legends in the pack just so they could jack the price up to $25. I'd buy it if it were just Fearswoop alone. So I'm gonna wait til I can find a cheap loose one either on ebay or in a local comic shop.

    It's on the way to me now from Walmart.com. Yeah it's ugly, but it's so ugly it's awesome, sorta like the cancelled Toxitron. Plus, he's a Hooligan homage, and obscure homages automatically win me over. I wish he didn't come with a barely-changed Sideswipe & Mudflap, but what can you do. At least I restrained myself from buying Legends Mudflap single-packed because of this and the Straightaway Shootout exclusives.

    No way... horrible mold (IMHO) and slightly less horrible name!

    Same. The mold is average but still better than some movie toys I could name. A Hooligan homage is cool but its not enough to make me buy the mold a second time with a Legend I already have and a Legend I will get in another multi-pack.

    Oddly, I hated both uses of the mold for the initial movie line but I am liking the Hooligan color scheme. I might get this pack if I can find it marked down sometime.

    I don't see why everyone thinks its such a bad mold...ok maybe its not the best, but I'll still probably buy it. The Hooligan color scheme is pretty interesting, but not as nice as the colors on the other two molds.

    Stuff like this should be made into a poll.

    I'm not overly fond of the mold and I already have the two Legends included with it, so I'll pass. However, I'm hoping that it will end up on clearance in a couple of months so I can pick up a batch for Toys for Tots.

    The only thing bad about this set is the price. I'm excited for the battle damaged legends as a varient is 110% better than a repack and double homage deluxe, which has been a ok mold in my eyes. Overcast is the version to pick up if your not into repaints.

    The price is insane though. Those animated target store deluxes with two legends were $14.99 value packs. And I even got a stealth lockdown set for less than $5 later.

    walmart exclusive prices have been higher this year than normal. Tettering on the edge of unreasonable.
