    WANT, but those shitty peeling stickers make it look like a KO. Reprolabels will help out, I'm sure.

    Looks like they don't come with their "targetmaster" stands that the originals had. Probably saved them a lot of money not having to include those mostly unused accessories.

    Its about freakin time! Now let see which retailers will be the carrier for this sought after G1 combiner set? But of course we have to expect the scalpers on this too...

    Not to be a jackass or anything, but is there a reason that Im not getting as to why people want this set/why they are reissuing this set? Its honestly a seriously ugly piece with all the neon colors that I hated even when I was a child. Now if they were reissuing God Neptune that would be another story, and I would totally understand the hype. God Neptune was one awesome looking toy.

    Its understandable and no great loss. Do the limbs still retain their handheld weapons or have they been removed too? I don't believe I've seen weapons other than Snaptrap's sword and gun.

    I don't like the stickers either. Tampographed details replacing them would have been nicer. And whats the deal with Snaptrap and Overbite's change of color?

    Its G1. Its available. Thats enough reason.

    WILL HAVE!!! Weapons are included from earlier pics being any indication (which might be the same ones here, I haven't looked) also, just because the stands aren't there, doesn't mean they won't be included. But they probably won't be.

    Nope, the sword was actually pink. Though in the box art on the back, it is pink.


    Oh and obligatory DO WANT.

    Wait a sec, in my excitement, I didn't pay attention... the individual figures don't come with their weapons? Or do they?

    If they don't come with the Targetmaster stands and individual weapons, I might pass on this. If it was fully complete for $50.00, I'd be sold. If it's just a complete Snaptrap and a bunch of incomplete limbs, then no. I mean, that's a lot of money for an incomplete set, if that's what we're getting. :( 

    And whoever said the stickers look like a KO, you ain't kidding. Those stickers look terrible. I'm hoping that's just a rush job mockup for the display and not the final product, because those look just awful. :(

    Most of the individual figures are shown with their weapons in the pictures, so I'd guess that they will be included. Not sure about the stands, but I can certainly live without them if it keeps the price down.

    Dont forget we are probably looking at a couple prototypes with regular stickers and not the final versions. So it could be a much better finished product.

    Yeah...I feel stupid.

    All I had to do was take a closer look at the pictures and see the weapons. I feel really dumb.

    But, this did give me a chance to scrutinize those pictures...there's a lot of hollow space in the cardboard bottom of that packaging, and it's plenty roomy to fit the stands if need be. I think we might just get the full set, now.

    If that's the case, then it's definitely worth $50.00 and I'll gladly pay it.

    Very cool, and an interesting set. I only had Skalor as a kid, so I will grab this one. Nice to see a non-Combaticon combiner reissue. Did it say when this is coming out?

    hate the packaging but can't wait to get this. is it just me or do the seacons seem like an unusual choice for a reissue now? could this mean more g1 reissues in the future? oh pls yes, bring back the commemoratives pls.
