    So they are identical to the first release with some different accessories?

    Can that ghost starscream attach somehow?

    It looks like the colors are slightly darker(red nails rather than pink for instance), and it looks like they have neutral faces rather than the open mouth the first one did.

    I almost want to see human sized versions of the cog and eye.

    Also, what's the Starscream pieces for?

    I'm thinking it somehow attaches to Scourge to emulate Starscream's possession over him?

    The reveals are definitely cool- but it would have been nice if Curse, Wrath and Bane had some unique characteristics... oh wait there's a new name on the box! Its new! Its completely different!!! I MUST OWN IT!!!!

    The transforming cog, eyes and Starscream Ghost possession accessory are a great addition! These guys get fandom. It does appear that they have a fabulous new nail color-Candy Apple red instead of Fairy Floss pink. One could always customize their nail colors.

    My interest is piqued- but at $299USD its a pass for me. I could maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe swallow $225 for this but no more.

    Just some questions about this.

    So visually, how are they distinguishable from Andras? **EDIT** Oh I see, red fingertips/nails & closed mouth.
    What are the features that make these new 3 different from each other and Andras?
    Do the Swarm troops have brightly painted red eyes with no light up gimmick whatsoever?

    Wrath comes with Eye of the City (Metro's Eyeball)?
    Bane comes with Cog of the City (Metro's Cog)?
    Curse comes with Traitor's Ghost?

    Is this a January or February release? How much for this pack?

    The ghost thing is interesting, but that's all.

    if i had a ton of space i'd probably get these...i was that impressed with andras (one of the best 2015 figure IMO). as is...i wish they sold the ghost Starscream parts separtely. that said....i personally think they shoul dhave made it a two pack instead of 3. andras plus 2 more would have been enough for a team. andras plus 3....its a crowd.

    Meh. Can't blame them though for not investing in change to the actual figure - it's a micro-niche audience that's going to pony up for a squad of massive, identical MP figures.

    Meh. Would have bought a 3 pack when Andras first hit my shelf but now I am more upset at the lack of progress regarding Boost and their Beachcomber. WTF is taking so long?

    Yep! If I had enough interest to invest that kind of dough into this expensive 3 pack I think I'd have the FT Scourge as my leader, and this set as his sweeps- even if they are just a bunch of bearded Lebanese robot guys with popped collars. ;)

    I'm an army builder by nature, so this will be a must have for me. Collecting Transformers doesn't give much army building options, unlike Star Wars, GI Joe, or even LEGO. This is a must have for me. Only question is will one set be enough?

    xtb just sort of devalued everyone's andras ....to about $100. Since there will be people splitting the package and reselling, nobody is going to pay much more than that on the secondary market.
