    ROTF Starscream head
    ROTF Megatron head

    Those magnets are made by Popbox Collectibles. Along with the character keychains you see in the top right (Bumblebee, Prime, Megs, Starscream).

    In fact, those keychains can give Robot Replicas a good run for its money. I love the details.

    If you already have magnets from the first movie, then the only ones worth getting this time around are Megatron, Starscream and the Prime without faceplate. Both Bumblebees and the battle mode Prime are almost identical to the ones they released for the first movie.

    Well, Starscream is essentially the same also, except the new tattoo paintjob. But I guess its different enough to be warrant buying it.

    To be honest I wished they'd do more new characters instead. Like Ironhide, Ratchet, Sideswipe, Fallen, Devastator, individual Constructicons, or even Blackout/Grindor.

    The insignia are "must haves" for me. I'm sure it is just a matter of time before these hit the states. In fact I would not be surprised at all if they are already here but just not well advertised. I may have to do some nosing around tomorrow.
