    I want that Fireflight. I've never owned any toy that used the Energon Shockwave mold

    You mean...deco, right?

    Because it's the FoC Shockwave/Air Raid mold being redecoed into Energon Sixshot colors, according to Venksta, not the other way around.

    Flamewar huh? They really, really didn't try to keep with the theme at all for this year's figures. Out of all the figures in the set, Cannonball is really the only one at all that feels even remotely like a pirate or knight, and that's only because he's been a pirate character since his inception. Ginrai's "shield" kind of works too, I suppose. In any case, the figures still look nice, they just don't feel like they adhere to any particular theme.

    Flare up. Also, I have to own anything named Sixshot, and this especially works for me.

    I like the look of hyperlinq too.

    Hahaha! I'm digging the idea of Energon Sixshot. It's silly but it works so well.

    Sixshot sounds awesome, namely because I more or less called said repaint as of last year. And yes, my digibash is horrid.
