    I just want the G1 XTB set to hurry up as they're the Stunticons I will have in botmode, so I am quite disappointed by the lethargic pace that is compounded by the G2 interruptions. Actually "hurry up" gives the wrong impression. I don't want a rush job, I just want them to be back on a normal production schedule that actually delivers all five within a 12-month window.


    edit: Crackup arrived in May 2018. So you've got five months left, XTB. Five. Months.

    I can't explain it. I never collected G2. I'm not really familiar with G2. All of a sudden I am now ALL IN for these G2 lads, they're gorgeous.

    I have chosen to go in on this set as well. The alt modes look to good to pass up specially in G2 colours. What would be the recommended way of buying these if one lives in Europe? Thanks in advance!

    Right?? I never understood the appeal of G2 and I never will, but.....

    As someone who was very pleasantly surprised with G2 Breakdown, I can say that the quality is much much better. It seems like there is more diecast, and the paint is metallic flecked and beautiful. I am so glad I got him, and now the yellow Wildrider looks good to me.

    Yeah, the colors don't seem as gaudy as they did in the 90s. G2 Dead End and Drag Strip are quite normal though- G2 Dead End is a bright but normal red, and G2 Drag Strip should be a cool black. As I said before, I've never been a fan of his alt mode, but black should be a good look.

    Damn, those look great! Between these guys and how well the Zeta Aerialbots turned out I’m a very happy camper. Just need someone to jump on the Protectobots.

    Agreed! It breaks up the yellow a bit and I’m this lighting it clearly looks intentional versus looking like mismatched paint.

    The better lighting helps and that purple gun makes the yellows pop more. Looking great!

    Still don't see why the figure would not be one, uniform shade of yellow?

    G2 Crackup was a convention exclusive that Ages 3 and Up and ToyDojo are selling online for $75. So you might be limited to those two for him. G2 Flipout should be a wide release carried by everybody and can be found for $65-ish shipped.
