    Got these guys a few weeks ago but haven't cracked them open. I like the Springer mold (I have Classics Blades) and I was really after Dirge in the other set. Ratbat has grown on me after seeing your review. I'll probably have to crack these open soon after seeing your reviews on them! Great job as always!

    Yeah, packing those two together would have made me a happy camper. As for the upgrade set, the website is here:

    Ratbat and Roadbuster are the deluxes. The figures were divided the way they were so each set would have 1 deluxe/1 voyager and 1 Autobot/1 Decepticon.

    Peaugh is a very good reviewer. He is talks about very important aspects of each toy and does not waste time. He answers a lot of questions about a toy and very professional and mature about it. He sounds very educated and authorative on his subjects like a scientist is on his field of research. This thread is good because he combines 4 related toys into one thread, saving the space and hassle of 3 additional threads. Since there are 4 different videos, a viewer can pick and choose what he wants to see. These reviews are thourough, concise, and flawless. He is a great example on how to do grest video reviews of toys.

    You've almost got me sold on getting the Springer. I'm trying to fight the urge.

    I'm, aware of why. I just have no interest in the voyagers they packed them with.

    Oh, I know why they chose to pack them this way. It makes sense from a business standpoint, and even from the particular theme for each boxset. But man, it would have been easier on my wallet to pick up one $20 set with the two figures I wanted instead of two $30 packs with a couple of figures I didn't :LOL

    I picked up both sets for Dirge and Ratbat. I would have preferred if those two came together, kinda a like a decepticon set. When I got them I was really happy, i didn't have either of these molds and couldn't be happier with the results. Roadbuster grew on me and I can't wait for the upgrade. I don't like the Springer at all, the colors look like vomit and I already have Blades. The paint on my figure with the cyber planet key goes was a mess. It was sticking to the packeging really bad. I was planning on selling the figure anyway so it didn't matter.

    Collector Collective: Ratbat vs Springer

    The first of a new series, as not one but four different collectors try to get in on the same video. It's a straight review, but I promise the most original and creative review you've ever seen. And if it's popular, the next will only be better.

    A good review, and an interesting format. I think it'd be cool to see more of this kinda stuff.

    Heh, that was a fun review, Omegus. A little schizophrenic, but fun. I like how you try out new ways to make toy reviews interesting.

    I kind of want that 2-pack now (or at least the Ratbat half of it).
