    Prowl is the best of the three, he's always been my fav autobot.

    Not a bust fan but I obviously MUST have Smokescreen. Any good guesses on how much this will cost?

    Wow, those are nice.

    But they don't have legs. Pass.

    I miss you, Palisades...

    Give them legs and I'd be interested.

    Bluestreak looks awesome. I could well be tempted.

    Well, at least they aren't completely repaints, they do have some changed details like the head crest and the shoulder weapons as far as i can see. The torso though, not so much difference there ;)

    Me too... while I like the Busts, I really wish we would've gotten these guys from Palisades.

    Not surprising considering it takes forever and an eternity for one of these to be released. They'll probably be ready for preorder in May, and be released in December.

    Yeah, I am royally pissed that I can't buy Smokescreen seperately. I don't want the other two, and I'm not about to spend $180 dollars just to get the one I want. I ain't made of money. This just sucks! :mad

    :sly2: 

    On the listing page: "(Your card will be charged for this item at checkout)"

    On their FAQ's page: "Preorder - Preorder items are not charged until the item is in stock and has been processed to be shipped to you. You will see no charge or authorization for any backordered item until that time. You will, however, be charged for shipping at the time of the order. (Please note: does not apply to Comic-Con preorders. See below)"

    :wtf:

    I just read the description for the set of three it says the following: Please note: In order to limit speculation by resellers on these items and ensure as many collectors as possible are able to purchase these, your account will be charged at the time of the order to reserve your edition number.

    So, there ya go. This preorder is apparently different. I also noticed in the description that only the first 100 pieces will be sold in sets. #101 and above will be sold separately. So, there may still be hope for me getting my Smokescreen.
