    Yay, first review! So, I recieved this set yesterday and I'm slightly disappointed.

    The box; plain and simple yet awesome

    Instructions(kinda)

    What hell?

    The multi bladed gatling gun; Pretty cool
    [​IMG]
    It fits on his arm very snuggly and I'm surprised it doesn't scrape the paint
    [​IMG]
    The missiles fit on just fine' but the nullrays just rest on top. They don't peg on at all.
    [​IMG]
    If you want to you can flip the gun over and attach the nullrays on top
    [​IMG]

    The military operations commander gun(non-transforming Shockwave); Sweet! Earlier pictures showed a clip that would allow you to clip Shockwave to Starscream's alt mode which it doesn't include
    [​IMG]
    It fits very securely in Starscreams hand.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    As well as the average 5 millimeter peg hole. By pulling off the handle it reveals a 5 mil peg
    [​IMG]

    The waist armor; It's alright
    [​IMG]
    Acts as a holster for his new gun
    [​IMG]
    and it looks like it's suposed to be a to holster the little Megatron that comes with mp prime, but it doesn't fit.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Storage mode; It's pretty hard to get on the stand. You have to remove the blades on the back, press it against the stand, and put the blades back on. Once you get it done it's pretty secure and pretty cool
    [​IMG]

    With the coronation set, it's pretty stiff.
    [​IMG]

    I've also found a way to attach everything to him or the stand in vehicle mode;
    [​IMG]

    Over all, I give this set an 8.5, because of some things that need improvement which are;

    The peg on Shockwave is a little loose,
    Needed to include the clip for Shockwave,
    Needs a way to store the hip kibble or replace the kibble entirely,
    Needs a way to attach the nullrays to the gatling gun,
    The blades need to be silver like in the pictures

    I've never heard of this set before. Is it based on Megatron's Seeker drones from The Age of Wrath?

    No, it's just a set of things people have been asking for. A Shockwave gun, a War Within style Multibladed Gatling Gun that Starscream used in the series, and pieces to cover the ball joints, but now there's no place to put his hip kibble.

    I wonder if that would look good on Greenscream (forget about the hip pieces, obviously)...
