    I love the Icecream Twins repaint, but that Sideways is really disappointing. Would have been better if it was the same as in the Arcee battlepack, but without the battle damage.

    I'm glad I didn't pre-order Takara Elita-1 now its coming to the U.S. Really only want one out of each pack. Arcee, Sideswipe, and Sideways.

    Oooh damn, those are all some fine looking toys. Especially Barricade. I LOVE Barricade and I LOVE G2-y colors. Also, does anyone know what's really changed with Sideways?

    yeah, i hate that too... i was hoping to have every version of sideswipe, but these barely different versions are annoying... and i surely don't need another Barricade... kinda like the twins, but i got the 3 pack from TRU... but gave my cousin the rusty twins, so i may get this, but i don't need sideways... they shoulda repacked them with dead end... and having two multipacks with barely different sideways (if any difference) makes me wonder if Hasbro took back all those sideways that were warming the shelf and repacked some of them into these packs...

    and that Arcee repaint looks cool, and even though i heard its a horrid mold, i kinda want the helicopter... guess it'll just depend on what else is out when these drop...

    yeah, they look way more dingy...

    the combination should still be possible...

    ...what the heck is Barricade wearings? :lol 

    I'll need to see better pics of these things before I decide to buy em, but so far the only one I'm remotely interested in is the Twins/Sideways set. Mainly because I <3 Sideways. I wish he could be one of the few to get a new movie accurate updated toy, but it'll never happen )=

    Its filler until the next movie line. Just buy the new few new molds they created and whatever molds you may have missed originally.

    See I feel the exact opposite. Barricade looks awesome for me, but I have to put up with another version of Sideswipe and I absolutely hate that toy! Want to split the set when they come out?

    Barricade is the only one that interests me out of the whole group!

    Hmm A closer look would help but the only thing here that interest me are those twins the don't get any more dirty than that.

    The Barricade is interesting but is a likely pass.

    They are going to have a lot of shelf warmers with these.

    There isn't a single one of these I like. They should just extend the "double your action" give away than vomit up some nasty looking repaints of these guys.

    Interesting. Each set has one interesting repaint paired with a kinda-fugly repaint. Arcee, Sideswipe, and Sideways are definitely the highlights of these 2-packs. I'd get the Arcee vs. Tail Whip, but I have absolutely no interest in the Blazemaster mold. One copy of the Sideways mold is enough for my collection, and I have no interest in the twin's IC-truck mold. The Sideswipe vs. Barricade one is really the only one of the three I'd consider getting, and even then I probably won't. While I'd like to have a copy of the Barricade mold, the colors seem odd on him (just too bright and too much contrast). While Sideswipe's repaint doesn't look too bad, I'm ok with the one I have, and don't imagine I'll be getting a second copy of the mold.

    Is it me, or do Skids and Mudflap keep getting more and more rusty?

    How is the "Rotorwash Rumble" set labeled as "Most Wanted"? Nobody knows who Tailwhip is to begin with, and it's just an excuse to release what I think is the Takara Elita-1. If I'm not mistaken.

    No. It's Chinese.

    Since when has Sideways, shelfwarmer extraordinaire and bane of ROTF multi-packs, been a highlight in anything? Not including the upcoming four-pack with Legends bike trio?

    Yet again, he seems to look unchanged at that, but it is a tiny image.

    I want that Sideways/Twins set, if only to actually GET the Twins. I don't have a Sideways, so I might just keep him because of that.

    Anytime I need cannon fodder, though, he'll be one of the first in line because that toy is pretty bad.

    So that Barricade WASN'T a KO? Mind blown. Barricade sure ain't a member of the fashion police.

    I can't believe they keep making the twins more and more rusty. That's cool and all, but do they have to keep putting them into multipacks?

    I think I'll pass on Garishicade and Allspark Sideswipe. The Twins/Sideways pack is a maybe. Arcee/Tailwhip is probably a definite, if only for the Tailwhip deco.
