    This set was worth the wait. Grimlock looks great in green, and there is no visible mold-wear on the figure at all despite being his third time out. Swoop is awesome, and is the best WST Dinobot so far IMO. The only disappointment is that they show the missile launchers fitting under his wings, but the chrome paint is a little heavy and filled the holes in most of the way. Nothing that can't be fixed with the proper tools. The missile launchers are just for looks, and don't have any springs in them to fire with. The same goes with the chrome paint being a little heavy, so the missiles fit pretty snugly, or not at all. Better be careful so they don't get stuck.

    Awesome, can't wait to see the regular WST Swoop with the blue chest next to this one.

    I So hope TFSource have Swoop and Sludge at Botcon. I can't afford to get the Stocking Stuffers, but I am all over the regular versions.

    The good news is you don't have to buy $75 worth of stuff in order to buy a set. To buy them alone, will cost $46. Im assuming there will be some of these at Botcon, assuming TFsource is there.

    I got the email saying they shipped it this week, so maybe with luck I'll get them next week! Can't wait to have my sets :D

    Does this mean Sludge and Swoop are going to ship soon, if not already?

    I ordered Sludge & Regular Swoop and the special set shipped without them, so I think there'll be a bit of a wait yet (actually quite pleased, means that customs can't touch them!)

    Really glad I pre-ordered this set, I really want a red-chested Swoop as the blue one didn't really do much for me. I'll get it anyway to complete the set though.

    I opened mine yesterday. I like Grimlock a lot, but my Swoop had a broken wing and the chest pieces were way too tight and didn't want to move without extreme force. Boo. Hopefully I can do some sort of exchange for a non-broken one. (Also, was kind of surprised that the boxes of my two sets had big dings in the corners. Last year's stocking stuffers came to me super minty. Oh well.)

    Man, that sucks that these came out before the regular ones! I have had them preordered since September - and paid for. I think the whole thing is ridiculous.

    USPS, I just opened mine as well. Very cool in person.

    I actually got two sets, but didn't get one of the all silver ones, oh well, good luck to everyone else.

    Here is a pic of the whole bunch of what has been released so far, with Revoltech Megnus and the legs of some titaniums figures to give you size referances.

    I personally think the green slag can be quite festive as well.

    Grimlock looks adorable with those reindeer antlers and the red nose. And he looks great in green, too. I might just have to get me one of those sets.
