    I pre-orders both sets. I don't know why but I wanted all of them for some reason!

    Would like to get them all, but cancelled my preorders with all the stuff coming out. Hoping they have a glut of them if there is a slow time, and that they go on clearance.

    I still have no interest in these, but I'm glad that people who only wanted 1 or 2 figures don't have to buy all of them.

    They look nice, but I still want to see the actual toys. Yes I know we have seen OP, Megs and KO.

    The concept seems good on paper- cool see-thru remolds- but I feel missed the boat as the toon is now in between seasons and the whole Dark Energon concept was so first season. Naturally collectors will nab a few of the stand-outs (i.e., Starscream, faceplateless OP, etc., Megs, etc.), but overall I think these will be the online equivalent of peg warmers. And those predicting that these will eventually find their way to discount outlets are most likely very right.

    i cancelled mine as megatron was way too pink and lost some of the translucent parts, was a shame imo.

    only one i still might get is wheeljack just to place con stickers on him and call him slicer.

    Thank goodness. I know BBTS likes their boxed sets, but I wasn't going to bring another fricking bumblebee into my home. I might sit out the Beast Hunters version too.

    The other deluxes were shown in person at Botcon or Toyfair or SDCC, one of those. They were in a case.

    I glad they can be bought individually! I never liked the have to buy the whole set to get the one you want.

    Now if I could only get Slicer instead of actively cancelling future preorders for the rest of the year... =(
