Edit: I just discovered another review of the set... seems to be a lot more favorable than mine! Anyway, here's my take, since it's too late to delete the thread now. I haven't seen anything about the Gear of War set go up on the main page yet, so I thought I'd mention it here. I would like to post some pictures, too, but since I'm at work that's not really possible right now. So, my preorder for the Gear of War set showed up last week (including a ladder for Classics Inferno, the auto-scout cassette, three launchers, and the funky Mirage-box). Here are my thoughts: First of all, the set didn't include the Grapple hook as mentioned in a post a few weeks back. Not a big deal, since I have no interest in Grapple. Otherwise, everything was included as expected. BUT... The manufacturing quality on these things is total garbage, with a couple exceptions. The ladder feels flimsy, but seems fairly sturdy. Attaching it is no problem. The auto-scout casette is also pretty nice, although it's a lot more purple than the photos. The articulation on its arm is nice, and there weren't any loose joints to speak of. It transforms nice and compact, no problems there. But the launchers... As recently posted, they are all chromed, so they don't match the non-Henkei figures very well. I liked the original prototypes better, with a non-chrome look. But I can get over that. The issue is that the plastic, paint, and mechanisms are totally cheap and worthless. One of the missiles was stuck in the silver launcher upon arrival and wouldn't come out until I had carefully (and forcibly) pulled on it for several minutes. Very frustrating. The black launcher doesn't work at all, and the red coating on the red launcher is flaking off like nobody's business. The launchers themselves just feel extremely cheap and flimsy. On the figures, they look OK. The launchers attach to the shoulder pegs on Sideswipe/Red Alert with some difficulty (I blame Hasbro for that, not TFC, since the pack-in gun is hard to peg in too). In response to some questions about connecting them to Mirage, there's a little angled slot on the back of the launchers that tabs on to the struts on Mirage's wheels. The Mirage box thing is just... weird. It's a single piece of very thick plastic, folded up in such a way that you need to re-fold it to make a proper box, and then stick it together with tabs. It's almost opaque... kind of pointless. So, I've got Sideswipe with the "black" (it's more a chrome brown) launcher with silver missile and black fins on the back; Red Alert with the silver launcher/fins and red missile, and Fracture with the red launcher/fins and black missile. I do like the way the launchers and missiles can be reconfigured, although they don't come apart or reattach very easily, and the entire process is rather damaging to their paint. I'm waiting on the Fansproject Prime trailer for the missile for Mirage, which, while not launching, looks to be much better quality overall. So... my final thoughts: I'm not buying TFC stuff again. They made a nice attempt, but overall it was a letdown. I'll try to post pictures soon.
