    This is all wildly unnecessary and I love it. Preordered as soon as I see it

    These are so unnecessary.
    I... Yeah :lol  these are trash.
    What we do need are new faces for Kup, Blurr, and Cyclonus.

    I love how they threw in parts for Hot Rod and Kup that are literally only there to justify the price

    I like some of the upgrade parts for Jazz and Starscream, but this set is junk for the most part. They clearly padded this one out with a lot of useless accessories.

    And I’m gonna be the first to say it, those translucent pieces for Kup look like piss puddles. :confused2

    Cyclonus also needs some feet enlargers. Also, how about some target masters?

    You know, I'm getting rather sick of DNA Design tossing upgrades for various different, unrelated characters into single sets. I don't even have half of these toys. Thankfully, there's not been anything that I really need in these sets.

    I missed that they did it again. Well, I will keep on following the golden rule: I don't like it = I don't buy it.

    I get that they probably have to hit a certain price to make production and shipping costs worth it, but it'll be interesting to see if there's enough crossover from SS86 fans and SS Bay fans that the latter will buy this kit.

    Surprised they didn't just follow the leaks and wait for a few more of the BB Seekers to come out.

    I might end up getting this and simply try and dye the pee puddle a bit. I'd hold obto the SS hands if a repaint catches my attention and the kup bits will be used on my modulaters.

    Me: ....seems legit.

    Not sure why they only censored some of the logos but ok.

    I think this might be the first set that I feel is a bit of a leg down. At least for Jazz. Screamers. Kups and Hotrods bits are fine but I don't feel any are needed. When it comes to Jazz the filler parts are cool but I was hoping they would pull some black magic and give us feet that look better in his alt mode and a G1 toy style missile pack.

    that yellow puddle effect can have so many bad uses...

    did they ever make an Agent Simmons mini figure from the Bay movie line? Pair him with BB for that infamous scene...

    At least they are black hands. They should work with any SS BB Seeker. I am leaning towards getting this set as I will be getting Skywarp, and the other bits, while not necessary, are nice. Their Daniel is 100% better than the one with Slag.

    With the exception of the Jazz gap fillers, this feels like the most superfluous set they've done yet.

    Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just interesting considering almost every other set they've done is a game changer for the original figure, whereas almost all of these things are nice little bonuses.
