    When is it going to be available and where? I was hopping to pick it up from target.com.

    It's cool but not worth it. The new Blurr is superior. Also the rumors of new Kup and Arcee makes this pack useless.

    Seems like a good chance to get five great representations of the characters, but IMHO, the original decos look better and can probably get them on the ebayz for less than this.

    Generations Blurr is so much better than the TR version.

    Too bad the scalpers from overseas are selling this set for $270...ridiculous.

    $150 is reasonable, but I haven't seen it on Target's site yet.

    I have been waiting for this set for a while but I don't think I want it anymore.

    I really wanted that new Blurr which combines the best aspects from the Generations and United versions, and Arcee and Springer look nice if their own kind of modern ways. However, I just don't care about Kup and Ultra Magnus (aside from the better painted Minimus Ambus) and I already ordered some Reprolabels for Generations Arcee, my Takara Generations Springer seems fine as it is too.

    $150 is a fine price though. I might bite if I find it cheaper.

    If you want the G1 style blurr(if you can look past the head master thing)most definitely. I am with you this pack is just nothing but wait for it...repacks.

    I think the set missed the perfect opportunity to give us an Exosuited daniel. by dropping a new face/chest piece onto Minimus Ambus

    I'm holding out for target because I have been keeping a gift card just for this. No need in breaking out the wallet.

    Not gonna lie I mainly want just the Minimus, maybe the Blurr. Arcee would be nice at a good price but too high and I'll just buy a Takara one. Hell maybe Kup as well. Willing to make a deal!

    Which will be beautifully priced if it keeps dropping. Come on $59.99 or even $49.99...

    That's my deal breaker point when it reached $59.99. I'm afraid by the time it reach $49.99, it might be sold out.
    At $69.59, it's a great price for all 5 figures considering the original price, lol. I should click that check out cart from the Target.com website, but I'll take the chance to see if drop down another $10, lol.
