    I'm looking getting this in the before the end of the month. I've heard nothing but good things about it. For those of you who have it, what do you think?

    I don't have it myself but from what I hear the major gripe is that the joints on the robots themselves are a bit weak and make for a floppy Superion without some modification. That is really the only bad thing I have heard

    great, makes superion worth having, with only tightening some ball joints (which needed it anyways) i would never have bought the set if it wasn't for the add-on

    What brr-icy said. Its the only reason I bought the Energon Superion set. Hasbro should thank FP.

    To be truthful, I know it's a fan-made item but I don't think it's worth the $45 I paid for it

    I would've never bought that Superion if it wasn't for this add-on kit. Its well worth the money.

    MrSoundwaveGuy damn you for making me do your collection count in my head!

    I LOVE it!! It's a really great kit that adds soooo much to the original figures. WAAAAY better than the original "energon" hands and feet.

    Pass, for me... I can't quite place it, but they just don't look right. Still, those that have them seem to like them.

    I have the original Energon version of Superion and I can't wait to see how the add on kit looks with him. The only joint floppiness problem that mine has is getting Silverbolts chestplate to stay in place in robot and combine mode.

    The add-on looks great, but I don't like Superion enough to invest $45 in it.

    the upgrade kit is everything you have read about. it's an outstanding piece. the robots you put them on are ass. loose joints, poor design, worse transformation. just know these things when you buy. all I'm sayin...
