    i like it, and the fact there is a hook for grapple they are allowing for customs/if hasbro makes a grapple repaint and has no hook/not a good one

    Seriously. :banghead: 

    I don't even fully understand how the ladder swaps with the watergun on Inferno- isn't it pinned? Or how the missile launcher attaches to Mirage- doesn't seem pegged in the photos.

    Man, I really like this set.... I'm still not 100% okay with Inferno having a ladder in this pumper truck incarnation, and I don't like the fact that you have to yank it off the pin-plug every time you want to move it to his arm, but... the guns and the autoscout are 100% awesome.

    If the quality of the one I get is anywhere near the quality in these photos, I'll be super happy. The production values seem really high, and I applaud their creativity and presentation. Mine can't arrive soon enough.

    Why do I get so crazy about awesome packaging like that?

    Love this. Love it a lot. Hated it at first. Hate has faded.

    I don't understand why everyone is getting their panties in a wad over the color combinations of the three guns... The possibilities are awesome if you don't force yourself to adhere to existing conventions. After all, you're introducing totally unlicensed third-party weaponry anyways, right? So use your imaginations a little, why don't you?

    [​IMG]

    G1 Sideswipe has Black Launcher, White Missile.
    G1 Red Alert has Black Launcher, Red Missile.
    G1 Mirage has Black Launcher, Chrome Missile.

    BUT...

    G1 Sideswipe came with a fully white rifle.
    G1 Red Alert came with a fully red rifle.
    G1 Mirage came with a fully chrome rifle.

    AND...

    Classics Sideswipe already has a Black gun/shoulder cannon with a White tip.
    Henkei Red Alert already has a Chrome gun/shoulder cannon with a Red tip. (OMG NOT G1 CANON)
    Classics/Henkei Mirage doesn't really get much of anything.
    Drag Strip and Fracture also end up sort of weaponless...

    So why not give Red Alert a fully red handgun,
    Give Mirage the Black launcher with the chrome missile,
    and give the chrome launcher with the black missile to Fracture as a shoulder cannon, or Sideswipe as a handgun?

    Hell, consider the other poor Classics saps who would be glad to have such a nice handgun!
    Cliffjumper would polish it every day if you'd let him have one. Hound wouldn't turn down a free weapon, either.
    Maybe even try leaving the pointy missile tip off, and having just a pistol...

    ...or worst case scenario, buy some paint, people.
    (or wait for someone to recast them in different colors to satisfy your part swapping lust)

    can Inferno's ladder be placed on his back aside from his arms? I think i've seen a picture of him that way.

    That is all and good. But God forbid you actually want all three toys to have their classic G1 launchers. Easy solution for me: not buying it (for several reasons).

    And paint chrome? Sir, are you mad? :drunk

    I was really digging this set at first too. I really wanted the ladder and missile launchers (couldn't really care about the scout). But now the Fansproject trailer comes with launchers specifically made for Sideswipe and Mirage (although they are both chrome) which makes me regret preordering this a little... but I dunno. I still think the ladder is cool, how to attach it is a mystery to me too. I really hope the instructions don't say "break Inferno's water cannon off, and hope for the best."

    I like the idea of giving one to Fracture/Crasher...

    Well, as far as the launchers go for me... considering that the G3 Trailer (yes, I'm getting it...) is going to have launchers designed for Mirage and Sideswipe... the Gears of War set will be going to: red launcher to Red Alert, chrome launcher to Sunstreaker (I know he didn't have one originally, but he's got the port and I want something there... an empty gun port like that just drives me batty) and black launcher to Fracture.

    I'm considering acquiring an Auto Scout but is this one or I-Gear's version better/more worthwhile? *scratches head*

    Depends on what you are looking for. If you want only the Autoscout and want it more detailed go with the iGear. If you want the weapons and ladder go with TF Club.

    Remember that no one has gotten their hands on an iGear product so we still don't know their quality standards. Plus, it still hasn't been released.

    If all you want is an Autoscout I-Gear's version is certainly cheaper... I'd only go with the GoW set if you want most or all of the set ($50 is a lot of money to kirplunk on a set for just one single piece).

    Thanks for your help Guys

    Yeah, All I'm interested in is AutoScout but if the quality of i-Gear's product is crap, then it's something I can live without. :)

    This set is really starting to look really pretty. Totally glad I pre-ordered these, my Transformers can ALWAYS use more weapons.
