    i wanted this set sooooo bad for the arcee triplets! it was cancelled but what really kills me is the fact that a few of these sets were on ebay around november of last year and i didn't get one cos i was gonna wait and get one after they were released to retail :/

    If you really want one then VERY rarely one pops up on ebay but it is really really really rare; i haven't seen one in months

    Ebay:
    there was also to be the ravage infiltration set which did hit sothebys in europe and can actually find those on ebay.

    there was also to be the target exclusive megatron rising set with rotf voy megatron in grey and damaged looking with 4 legend constructicons, looked soooo cool.

    instead we got those shitty ass repainted deluxe exclusive packs.

    Shame we never got it. The Ravage Infiltration set clogs shelves here in England as a Sainsburys store exclusive, only really now starting to sell in sales at about a third of the original asking price. The co-sell on the box of the Sideways Sneak Attack set teased me with the Arcee sisters because I don't think we ever got those Legends here officially. I'd have much rather had that set than the RI one that contained all molds already officially released here previously.

    It got canceled, and I wish it didn't. Would have loved to have that Sideways.

    I so wanted this set so bad sucks we never got it. Ya those Target two pack repaint exclusives we got were awful though I was going to get the one with Arcee just to get her and the one with the twins as the ice cram truck and add the stickers I got from reprolabels on it. I was hoping they would go on clearance but they never did or I missed out on them when they did.

    A few Sideways Sneak Attack sets made it to Ebay back then. I regret not getting one.

    I was pissed that this never got released. I was really looking forward to Sideways's more screen accurate paintjob, and the legends Arcees.

    Go figure that the set with a deluxe movie Sideways figure that people ACTUALLY WANTED as opposed to the fifty billion other multi-packs with that sucky figure in it never saw release.

    Even though I admit I would have bought that set as well, because then I would have had an excuse to keep Sideways in alt. mode. The Legends Arcee sisters probably were more of what interested me since I lack any proper version of them in my collection, but at least you could actually just remove them from the movie and there's almost no major impact on the already questionable plot, so I won't loose sleep over not having them in the collection as it is. Or Sideways, since he really didn't do anything except be the prop that allowed Sideswipe to do his one big thing.

    I would've liked to buy that set for the sisters b/c the legends were in my eyes better molds than the deluxe versions.

    This, this, and this. QFT!

    I wanted this set and the Megatron rising one. Can't believe they got cancelled yet the hideous two-pack redecos of the other figures did.
    What a load of bullshit.

    It's always the cool shit that gets cancelled. Thanks Hasbro for not producing this and instead using up money before towards producing five hundred million TUNER-FUCKING-MUDFLAPS AND SKIDS.
