    Got one at Target this morning! Very solid and fun to play with. I turned him into a GoBot...lol...

    I saw their exclusive today. Looks good, but I'm not seeing $20. It seems more like one of the $12-15 sets.

    I thought it was a higher price due to it being an exclusive, but checking the descriptions:

    $20 Trident
    Includes 78 Building Pieces, 22 Accessories

    $15 Scarab
    Includes 41 Building Pieces, 17 Accessories

    $15 Sabre
    Includes 39 Building Pieces, 18 Accessories

    $20 Scorpion
    Includes 81 Building Pieces, 22 Accessories

    Seems pretty reasonable piece-wise. I ordered one from the website the other day, I'll take a comparison shot once it arrives and I have it assembled. If no one else has done it first.

    Just realized that the Trident comes with 3 figures. Can someone take a picture of the open cockpit? I'm reallt curious as to what the inside of the cockpit looks like.

    Just found out about these via Diaclone fans on Twitter, they look right up my alley but not coming to the UK for a while by the sounds of things. So I ordered one of the smallest ones off Amazon.com to get a taster.

    I got the scorpion today.
    these are pretty fun toys, and the little drop pod things are cool. I just kind of wish they had gone slightly bigger on the pilots given the size of the cockpits

    Dis-assemble, make something new. That's the main attraction for me, though I will admit there have been some solid builds I've been reluctant to take apart :)

    That's cool, has a very battle tech look to it.

    Was bored so I tried the app to see some of their unlockable custom designs and the app is really good.

    With just a couple of minutes play I unlocked nearly a dozen designs each with full 3D build instructions and AR features. Really quite a fun app to while away some time.

    Very Marauder, I dig. Been watching this thread, may have to pick up a couple sets to check out when they hit my neck of the woods.

    I was trying to find this out yesterday, as EbenezerScourge just said they're coming from Interplay in the UK so I emailed them to see if they could tell me something more concrete and they got back to me quickly which was nice. Less nice is that they said they're not coming out here until 'early next year' and that's still only an estimate. :/

    So I'm just going to come out and say it, is there anyone here who would be willing to pick some of these up and ship them to the UK please?

    Amazon is the only place that will ship to the UK but they have sold out of most of them and they don't have the rather awesome looking Trident Gunship...
    Also I ordered a Locust ship on Tuesday morning and they haven't even posted it yet.

    I'm dying to try them out and while I like to think I have many virtues I'm well aware that patience isn't one of them! :oops:
