    At first I was like "That's a good effort for an Impactor retool, then I saw the alt mode and I was like "oh hell, I totally forgot it's Refraktor!" Have the trio perpetually combined into the camera mode didn't help, LOL.

    Damn, I was hoping for either Xaaron or Flame. My money definitely wasn’t on Xaaron AND Flame!!

    These two plus Straxus are making me really want a comic-style repaint of Jhiaxus. It would be super cool to have a little shelf of comic-only guys all in comic-style.

    Don't these link up in such a way you can peg as many together as you want? If we ignore the camera specfic parts.

    Likewise, I hope these guys give them enough confidence to bring the characters in to the mainline. Especially now that we've slowly established some other more well known characters that could leverage the mold.

    They both have very good looking robot modes! Alt modes… not so much. A skip for me, but I’m happy for those who want them. I just hope Scrounge is next up…

    It's too bad we've already gotten Comic Blaster because that'd have made a perfect pair.

    There are a handful of past releases that work for that, like Wreckers collection Impactor. My shelf* also has non-exclusive comic deco figures like GS Galvatron and Wreckers Springer.

    *Well it's a tote right now, but conceptually, it's a shelf, and eventually** will be.
    **No, I don't know when "eventually" is.

    Xaaron is a figure I have always wanted I remembering spray painting an action master all gold and making him my Xaaron . I think this looks great , Even though I was first introduced to Xaaron through the US comic and even though it was a bit jarring for me to see him with no gold head at first when I read the UK comics. And while I would prefer the all gold look, I am totally getting this. As for Flame he looks pretty much perfect too. Dont really care about him but hey its a mold I dont have and so why not my kids will enjoy him I think

    The comic figures continue to easily be the best line of the year, way better than the mainline despite not even having a single new mold

    Just imagine if they don't fix the knee problem SSGE Megatron had.
