    Maybe I'll see how I go at getting this set - hopefully Reprolabels can make a sticker set for this soon! :)

    To be fair....Hasbro's product was never meant to be configured this way. Each FansProject arm/fist is set on one leg balljoint of a scout sized figure. Of course it may be a bit floppy.

    I bought Superion on a whim in TRU and quite frankly, I don't really like it. Zero articulation and those energon hands and feet just look like a big pile of ass so I've ordered this just to make the best of a bad thing.

    I don't get complaints about no articulation. I think there's plenty of articulation if you don't go entirely by the instructions. All 3 energon combiners actually have quite a bit of articulation if you "mis-transform" them

    In the future I'm going to order from a West Coast retailer like Toy Arena.

    It's ridiculous that I have to wait for a boat from Asia to dock, then have the crap mailed to the midwest (BBTS) or Philly (TF Source), then have them mail it back across the country to me.

    So that kit is $50? I bought the Target/ROTF Superion for $30, but haven't opened it yet. Was thinking about buying this kit, but that puts Superion's total at $80, and I don't like Superion enough to spend $80 on, but the kit, your pics, and review is great. I'm just more of a mainstream (Prime, Megs, SS, etc) collector. Someone mentioned that Hasbro should've done something like this from the beginning, and I couldn't agree more--maybe price it at $40-50. I would've bought it.
