    Didn't see a thread for these yet. I think there are enough reviews for these molds so i will keep it short. Starting with:

    Perceptor:

    Not a huge fan of the legs but it works i guess. Knees are a bit loose, i account that on the horrible Design tho. The Titanmaster pegs are too tight because they are chromed. Speaking of Titanmaster...

    Try not to eat him, he is NOT made of fudge!

    Not much to say here. No weapon for him. I'd call him the worst legends mold but his buggy mode kinda saves him. That botmode looks like he ate too many of perceptors fudge titanmasters. Shoulder and hip balljoints are a tad too loose (I will say something about that later). Least favourite of the three.

    Look at this shiny boy! Definitely my favourite of the set. His rocket launcher tabs in pretty good besides being chromed. The headflap for the altmode is a PITA tho - big surprise - because of the chrome finish.

    Do i recommend the set? Eh. I like unique and weird stuff so im generally happy with these lads. I didn't own a single of these molds before tho so that probably added to my personal experience.

    The thing with chrome is that it will
    1. Screw with tolerances
    2. Scratch easily
    Adding to that, you don't get the whole chrome deal like lucky draw figures. I personally like the other gold shades (since they prevent damaged chrome paint) but i can see alot of people ending up disliking that. The paintjob is great as always tho.

    If you like what you see, go ahead and grab a set. If you only want one Golden Lagoon figure I highly recommend Starscream.
