    I just noticed that his colors look startlingly like Rhinox.

    I can't wait for these to come out here in the U.S. I especially want the Roadbuster/Dirge 2-pack.

    Interesting. I'll definitely be getting the Roadbuster vs. Dirge set. Dirge will make the perfect start for my Raven-XL7 kitbash, and Roadbuster will make a nice addition to my Universe/Classics Autobots. The Springer vs. Ratbat set doesn't look too bad, but I don't have plans to buy it. Maybe if I see it on sale, or I happen to have the extra cash for it (either way extremely doubtful).

    Edit: The one thing that bothers me about Roadbuster, is the fact that his eyes are the same green as the rest of his face. I'll have to take his head apart and paint those. I don't have a problem with him not having a new head, but something about the eyes just doesn't look right to me.

    If I was to buy either of these two packs it'd probably be Springer and Ratbat...even though they are repaints it looks like a descent Springer to me...even though it's no triple changer.

    The Dirge/Roadbuster is a must for me, the other set only has Ratbat getting my interest, and I might be able to buy it off my friend when he gets the set, as he hates Ratbat but loves Springer.

    Gah. I never expected these to show up in Canada or Quebec at all, let alone at my local Zellers! It's my day off today, even... I was going to be passing through that store earlier tonight until my plans changed.

    Though it seems that I've already missed them... grrrrr... since they're English-only packaging, it's only a matter of time before someone realizes that they aren't supposed to sell those in Quebec and pulls them off shelves. :(

    Do want both. Wonder if they'll hit on an endcap display with the Legends 5-packs in November stateside.

    Two of each. Once their released in the U.S. november ish.

    All I can say about these particularly. Is I want more comic book re print packs somehow. Especially the old marvel comics. The really should work them in as like gijoe and starwars comic packs. Not just this exclusive (and 25th prime). But also on some carded deluxe figures.

    Though if they put them in the universe ultras that would work better as the box sizes can display a comic with the toy. And that price point needs a extra push. Seriously my wal-mart is crammed with silverbolt and powerglide now.

    Heh.

    In my case, there's only 1 mold I don't have in each of the 2packs. But the repaints are so nice that I don't mind.

    Yay me. Oh and Rodbuster is the winner of the bunch in my opinion. He is just wow.

    We need to set up an exchange on the board. I only want Springer/Roadbuster, so I'm sure there are people that I can split these with.

    I only want Dirge and Ratbat so I would be totally down for an exchange.

    Can't wait till these get released at my Target in November... bad part is, like many others, I only want two of the four figures. I only want Ratbat and Roadbuster myself... so I guess I'll be looking to unload a Springer and Dirge at some point.
