    The pirates aren't that piratey and the knights aren't that knightly. But its still a good set overall IMO with no real stinkers or below average toys.

    The only one I don't really like is Alpha Trizer and thats only because the mold just doesn't fit Alpha Trion's color scheme and character IMO.

    someone (renderform or 3rd party) needs to create a shield/sword kit for all the autobot "knights" and a weapon pack for the pirates( Scorponok would rock a trident and net combo) like they used in the gladiator movie,

    Apparently Alpha Trizer is actually an older Cheetor. Post-Beast Machines.

    Anyway, my rating. And my purchase list order.
    1: Knight 3-pack
    2: Pirate 2-Pack

    Not really interested in the clones.

    As for individual ratings.
    1- Alpha Trizer
    2- Brimstone
    3- Apelinq
    4- Flareup
    5- Shokaract (I'm not calling him "hunter")

    Box set: 9.5/10- Decos were great, but Devcon's lips look hilariously mushy.
    Flamewar: 8/10- Don't care much for the mold or the character, but the colors work well.
    Knights: 8/10- Great set overall, just don't care for the characters.
    Clones: 7/10- Don't get me wrong, they're great figures, but it was a big missed opportunity to do Fastlane and Cloudraker, considering they were actual vehicles.
    Pirates: 8.5/10- Decos are stronger than the Knights, but again, don't care for the characters. Maybe I just need to read the comic.
    Primal Prime: 8.5/10- The clear plastic is cool, and the stickers are fanwanky as all hell.
    Kreons: 10/10- They nailed this one. I just want to see more BotCon characters in kreon form.

    Overall: 8/10- A really solid year of exclusives and a great way of commemorating 20 years of this convention.
