    The bots and the camera all look good from the front, but turn them around and they look unfinished.

    I honestly couldn’t give a toss about that if they’re otherwise good. Everything is displayed forwards anyway.

    I would’ve liked to see toy-styled heads on these guys as well.

    I have a set of oversized G1 KOs and will have to look into head swap possibilities.

    Maybe it's just me, but I thought Viewfinder was originally a darker purple / grey? I think Viewfinder and Spyglass are a little too close in color. I might wind up swapping out one of the retail Refraktor releases for Viewfinder. That's if the new pieces aren't molded on.

    At the very least I'd like to see some 3rd party company make their own version that matches the regular release.

    Is it me or does this supposed to have only one shutter piece? I mean the set is worth the get more than the retail version, you have to pay thrice the cost of one. But how can you store the other parts in drone modes?

    Just wait until someone like Dr. Wu or Nonnef to solve this problem, and I mean we really want these kind of heads, right?

    Its 10 bucks cheaper than 3 individual deluxe, like the Rainmaker set being cheaper than 3 Voyagers, and I don't think this set was made with the drone modes in mind, but I'm sure someone could BS a passable storage solution

    I’m getting them just to put their extra parts on the cartoon accurate versions, mostly the top piece added to the middle since it was actually part of the g1 cartoon model, not sure about the flash and side piece with the button

    Not that great of a camera. All of the pictures it takes come out in glowing neon blue.
