    This is one of the few sets I'm debating getting. I gotta see it in person.

    Definitely want this. Although from what I was gathering in the recent TRU excl threads, that these guys were gonna be released a bit later. Are they gonna be available tomorrow on the 30th?

    Its out in the UK too.

    I had to go through about 8 sets before I found one where Bludgeon's upper leg didn't have plastic flash or white bits on it.

    Colors for Blackout look better in this one, but this is the 5th use of this mold? 6th? Come on, give him a break!

    I can tell that Blungeon is a remold of Savage from the first transformer movie but what remold is Whirl? I can't tell and I'd really like to know. He looks like a new mold to me but I know that isn't possible.

    Actually Bludgeon is just a repaint of Wreckage, not a remold.

    Whirl is a repaint of Evac from the first movie line, who is in turn a remold and repaint of Blackout.

    Thanks, I really did mean Wreckage, I thought the right figure, he's right here on my desk staring at me, just had the wrong name. And repaint is what I meant also, damn these technicalities. But thanks for the info that Whirl is the repaint from Blackout.

    :)

    The Blackout mold will never die!!! Mwa-hahahahaha!

    I'm not a fan of it since nearly half the coptor isn't used for the robot, therefore making him smaller than he should be and has to lug a big chunk of himself either on his back or on his arm.

    Saw this today, I want Bludgeon as he looked really good but no way I'm paying $50 for this.

    Toys R Us is selling this not Zellers :p
