    Aye I thought I might, it sucks but I can always sell him for some silly low price just to get rid of him. One midget Galvatron is enough ta :p 


    On Hot Rod though...I wanna know for absolute certain that he's going away before I actually buy the set. I'd rather sell Hot Rod, order the set, then ship Hot Rod out to the buyer once I've got the set. Just so I know that £30 hasn't just gone down the drain over one figure.

    I might be willing to help you out. How much you take for the Hot Rod shipped to the US? Please price it in US dollars, I'm not a good money translator.

    PM'd.


    It's a real shame that this set is an Asian exclusive. The repaints are better than any other release imo (though Galvy is very much a comic repaint as opposed to show colours).

    I have also have the set. Stupid me ordered it twice forgetting that I had a pre-order from TFSourcee. What a surprise when the package was delivered to my door.

    Anyhoo... I find Cyclonus the best of the bunch. Rodimus is a great figure. The Color scheme is a lot better in hand. And Gallvatron remains in Tank mode. Since I have all versions of this mold, I will try to post pics of the new FP upgrade for each one of them.

    I'm probably going to buy this at Robotkingdom...

    But I wonder, what is the likelihood of Hasbro releasing these figures individually in the Generations (or even a future line) line? Knowing Hasbro with repaint/repacks.....

    I guess it best not to take the chance?

    Just need Generations Scourge and a few Sweeps to make a nice army for Galvatron!

    I'm really glad I grabbed this set! Cyclonus really came out amazing!

    I looks good. I like the color of this version of Cyclonus. IMHO it's a happy medium between the other 2 version. It's not to dark and it's not to light. I'm also glad that Hasbro Asia didn't use the horrible 2 tone grey that was most noticeable on the thighs in the Universe 2.0 version.

    As for Rodimus, I can't stress more on how much better this looks in hand. Most of the pics out there does not do it justice.

    I have to agree about Hot Rod/Rodimus. I was pleasantly surprised to at how much better he looks than he does online. And while I would have at much preferred light blue translucent windows and light pipping, for what they were going for with the animation effect, it doesn't look half bad.

    Glad to hear about Roddy looking good in person. I will be picking this set up with Henkei Optimus friday at a specialty shop nearby.

    Only conundrum I have now is I have a regular classics with the Reprolabel sticker set. Which goes in the armor and which stay outs? I think the CAC set one is taking over as primary thought being the brighter colors.

    And I think a nice blue metallic flake would have looked good in place of the sky blue windows or maybe a darker blue panel wash on the outer rim.

    I love this set. Blurr is just thrown in there for good measure.

    I'm waiting for target to get them. 86 movie love. need to get a extra one to display sealed.

    I'd hedge a bet on thanksgiving. Since that's when those ratbat-springer and roadbuster-dirge packs were being sighted in 2008. A very CHUG style collector exclusive.

    Hasbro has already stated that these were for the Asian market and had no plans on releasing them here in the states. Now they can change there minds later, but I can guarantee you that it won't be for this year.

    I never owned a Classics Galvatron till this set came by. He's going to be one of those figures that never gets transformed in my collection.

    I'm not saying it will. I'm saying if it did, I may get it. It's not a big deal to me either way.

    Blurr looks friggin great with the Challenge at Cybertron set.


    I think this pic makes me want Blurr more than the set at all. (Mostly because i don't need the set and also I heart the Drift Mold)

    I hope that Target does receive this set, but it won't break my heart if they don't. The only thing I really want out of the set is Rodimus, and that's because he is probably going to be easier to find than the Classics version.
