    They mention that they used the Evac mold for Springer, because his Botcon 07 figure already had the ground vehicle aspect of the original character covered.

    Also that Rabat apparently uses Sideways' flipping faction symbol to display both Decepticon and Ultracon symbols.

    These sets ROCK!
    Ever since I saw Dirge in that form in some comic book (can't remember which one) I wanted a Cyb. Starscream redecoed as Dirge; even to the point of considering paying someone to do a custom for me. I never thought they'd end up making a retail version of it!
    And Ratbat is great too, that mold is absolutely perfect for him. Roadbuster and Springer are good as well, I can't wait until these show up in stores.

    Glad they replaced the Autobot symbol on Sideways with an Ultracon symbol from the War Within II. I was thinking about that one last night at work... though it would be weird for Ratbat to be able to change factions, but it looks like they worked it out. :D

    Wow, Hasbro have really been doing good work with that site post botcon. :thumb 

    There's only figure here I was even interested in and fortunetly for me it looks freaking awesome. Springer, he's spot on and in both modes no less.
    I don't particulary want another noisemaze but it looks like I'll be getting one anyway. :D

    Definitely picking these guys up. Mainly for Dirge and Ratbat, but the Autobot molds in the sets aren't bad. Ratbat is the gem there though. Brilliant.

    Ratbat is the most interesting to me,
    and Springer looks better then he did at botcon.

    Still I want a new mold triple changing Springer eventually.

    I really hope roadbuster ends up with black tiress as seen there ~ the botcon pics had him with green(iirc) tires.

    awesome set of exclusives, and that'll work for classics Dirge for me. he'll mock Ramjet for his shortness. :p

    Actually, these don't look all that bad. Especially Roadbuster, who's display model at Botcon didn't look all that good (was most likely an early prototype of the colors). I might actually get one or both of these sets now. I've never owned any one of these four molds, so that's one thing in their favor. I'll have to think about it for a while before I add either set to my to-get list though.

    Springer will make an excellent Classics Springer, for sure.

    Both of these sets are great, with the Roadbuster/Dirge slightly better than Springer/Ratbat.

    I think in my universe, Toys R Us Wingblade will be by Springer (Swords FTW), and I'll use this Springer as Whirl. That will give me a nice start on a set of neo-Wreckers all having realistic military alt modes and a relatively consistent color scheme.

    I'm not buying these, but they do look nice. I could've been convinced to buy Roadbuster as a single.
