    Some is selling Desert Hound on EBay - I don't think they actually have it though unless a sea of them show up in the next few days.

    here 'ya go:

    (A) clear green eyes, blue hands (in front)
    (B) gold eyes, clear purple hands (on left)
    (C) red eyes, silver hands (on right)
    (?) (whole figure completely translucent blue)

    - the original regular set included 2x(A) and 1x(B)
    - the limited edition set included 2x(A) and 1x(C)
    - the current re-release set appears to have 3x(A), but the pics i've seen make the eyes seem more clear yellow than clear green (but i don't have this set to compare)
    - (i have no idea how to get the translucent blue version)

    hope that helps! =)

    here's the clear blue one i mentioned, and also a pic of a re-release set from a random ebay auction (the eyes seem more yellowish than greenish to me, and the gray seems darker - but it could just be the photo):

    ^ Never knew about that translucent blue one, thanks for the pic. If only troopbuilding was as easy (availability and price) with other figures as it has been with these guys.

    The 3 pack where they are all the same does seem to have eyes much more yellow than the image above - I only have the newer one and i'd say the eyes were yellow not green on that set.

    Oh and someone please make a bag of rubbery antenee for these guys so I can actually use them without them snapping like twigs when you look at them funny.

    I hope they make another Jet 3 pack soon - and include a Red Wing and an Orange Sunstorm in the set. The 3rd one can be teal or Frest Green perhaps.

    I'm looking forward to the Desert Hound more than I am the original (which I already have) as It's a New Decepticon (Detritus) which I can get some play potential out of.

    I’ve been curious if the last set sold well enough to get another set.

    Well Red Wing is worth doing as I'm certain people would be all over him in an F-15 form.
    Sunstorm as the art for the Huge Dragon has him on it & then the 3rd one to complete the prior set with the purple one being re-purposed as a clone seeker. failing that they can sell them one at a time with a Diaclone suit.

    I’d be down for a new set or two myself as I am a seeker addict.

    I'm surprised Inferno and Grapple are taking so long. They looked ready to go months ago

    Beat me to it @OCProwl! I noticed them the other day and was going to comment the same thing. I saw that he had them in the loose thread but not the boxed versions, so I am still not clear if it is a two-pack like they are listed on TFSource or just individual bots with combo/variable packaging like the way they did Huffer/Pipes & Gears/Swerve...

    Thanks, HZJ needs to reorganize his listings. It's getting difficult to sort through all of that crap.

    It's easier on the ebay app, it let's you scroll thru the thumbnails and even tells you if it's out of stock.

    Edit: you may already be using the ebay app, I dunno. This was more for the benefit of anyone that is not, so they know there's a more efficient way to scroll thru all those lists. Cheers! :) 3
