    I don't own a camera... :( 

    Besides, it's nothing special. Those parts all pop on and off with no screws or pins. You just need to be careful. I'm happy with the results, even if they aren't show accurate.

    And since you can only see the cockpits and the hatches for them in Vehicle mode, they look fine that way too! Neat!

    Is that company ever going to release more figures or was it a one time thing?

    They're working on the TTT (Animated) line as well with Huffer & Pipes being the first figures in that line.

    Agreed. love both twintwist and topspin, but I have yet to see an animated TF that strikes my fancy, so they'll get no more of my dough till they put out something I like!

    AGGGGH! They're out of stock at TFsource. I was hoping to bundle them with Hexatron to get some free delivery!

    I just got mine in from TRSource. Man these are really cool, I was holding up on these for a while but after searching through the this thread I had to get them. Totally worth it and a great addition to the Wreckers that I am putting together.

    I just ordered a set off ebay. I've been meaning to get them for a while but other things ( mainly Masterpieces ) have taken priority.

    I think these will look great displayed with Generations Springer, Mach 5's Ironfist, that new Perceptor and if they ever get round to it iGear's Impactor.

    Just got these guys today and they are awesome. Can't believe I waited so long to pull the trigger.

    I've been transforming them constantly since I opened the package. Very intuitive transformation. These guys are affordable, and there's no hollow pieces (hint to hasbro).

    Can't wait to see what mech ideas comes out with next. Very impressed.

    The hammers can be disassembled. Looked at the packaging and said,"WTF is that on geminus' arm?". Turns out the hammerscan be broken apart, tabbed in to the little slots and plugged into either the altmode or robot mode as you see fit.

    Mind blown.

    I have a blast changing the hammer length to get the two of them in cool poses they couldn't otherwise do.

    I got mine with Hexatron yesterday, but I have a QC issue. I already emailed TFsource to see if they can fix it. Guess what it is.

    ^ "What is my gearbox hanging out or something?"

    Topspin forgot to zip after changing his oil apparently.

    Does anyone have any of their packaging they don't want? I'm looking for a set of the plastic part of the packaging to use for both of my Shawk and Pawe figures and customizing the card backs. Anyone interested, I will pay for them. PM me.

    Thanks in advance,

    - Scott
