    This is so true. My mom was going grocery shopping, and she thought she saw Jeep Bumblebee at Target. She bought it because she knew I was super excited for that figure, but it turns out someone repacked the first bumblebee from Studio Series in there, and it was broken too.

    Damn that sucks. Next time you should have her text you a picture to confirm before purchase. Although I will admit, having an extra 79 Camaro Bumblebee just to put the head on 2007 Camaro Bumblebee is not a bad thing. I did that.

    Thanks man. I mean, we returned it. Turned out someone had just bought the entire new case of Jet Shatter, Jeep Bee and Roadbuster just as we entered the store lol. My luck cannot get worse haha. I’m happy it’s holiday times, because now I’ll be able to cop it hopefully.

    $250.00 is only cheap if you compare it to Diaclone Powered Convoy
    But I suppose that is the slight consequence of it containing multiple leaders - but to be honest the "Voyager" in the set as so small I often forget they are not a deluxe - especially Rampage and Longhaul. I think I'd perhaps rather spend that sort of money on the seacons reissue instead i'd like play with those more. But I guess $250ish isn't so bad if you compare it to The 1-1 and Overscale KO's.

    To be honest I tend to end up with so many constructicons - I may end up "accidentally" buying the giftset one say anyway - especially if it shows up cheap. But in terms of "To play with I'm most of the way through the KO's and the Officials anyway and pondering getting the overscales as well, mostly as things are a little quiet for 3rd party at the moment. I'd rather be spending the money on giant Movie Dinobots - but everyone just seems to keep making Grimlock and do not really need 6 of those.

    I could have sworn I was reading people complaining about "new parts" and the speculated boxed set with said new parts and how they are not getting said parts. Especially considering the whole Centurion Select series thing as well - I was "expecting" the outlandish pricing of the gift set to be justified by well "something" other than a bit of poorly implemented spray on dirt or sand.

    As for the chains etc..- I may have accidentally got confused momentarily with the Overscale KO versions who have some extras.

    I will admit do not have huge investment in the combined modes of the Hasbro ones anyway as I'd be buying them for the individual robots anyway as I'd likely buy a bigger one to keep combined. I like Overload to much to want to see him hidden away in a combination as he is.

    Gonna say it, this is an exclusive set somewhere and that price is doubled due to them getting it an not being that source originally

    I just have to say, this mistransformation is a classic:

    That’s embarrassing. They didn’t even transform Hightower properly.

    I thing there is a lot of chances for a good sale on Amazon.

    Will take my chances.

    There is a joke here, but I fear to touch it due to the aftermath of it

    I came here to say the same thing. Why is he so brutally mistransformed?

    I think the individual bot modes stock photos are worth bringing up. While only 2 of the 8 are grievously mistransformed, they've either got amazing poses (like Scavenger or Long Haul) or incredibly boring ones (Skipjack, Overload).

    It looks like he's holding up the entire upper body.

    I'm liking the looks of the OSKOs coming out so far. I would love to see them in a box set...

    It reaches.my personal expectations including the art box, but the question is why they didn't do this set since the beginning? I know the price makes most people fart but being a collector teaches you that there's no expensive toy,so I guess we must start taking out part of our savings to buy it, some will pawn their stuffs or body but at the end what we really want is the satisfaction of this set
