Interesting, Starscream's sporting "Dark Energon Powered" deco.

I wonder if this set is a spoiler for upcomming episodes (given the descriptions we've seen of them).


Too bad this will NEVER BE RELEASED IN THE US.

To my knowledge, this is, so far, the only release of the FE molds in Australia

We never saw any of the FE stuff. No Arcee, no Bumblebee, no Starscream

I can't feel too bad for your plight this time around, sorry

Hmm, wonder if this will come out in NZ too. I haven't seen any TF:Prime toys out here yet.

Seibertron has galleries up.

I'm even less into this Bee than before given that apparently the ridiculous blue isn't everywhere but just fades into his black stripes.

I do still dig this Starscream -- wonder who I can repurpose him into.

$60, though, cheese that's a lot. Then again the last set was $40 here.

SO OKAY IT'S AVERAGE

Virtually&nbsp;every custom as good as the title suggests!

I just got these guys yesterday.

Not sure if it's mold degradation, plastic tolerance or just something unique to mine, but it's really hard to get Bumblebee's chest to nest together properly. The left half usually wants to pop up out of place.

Also, Silas is hilariously googly-eyed. And isn't actually named Silas, apparently. I hoped that was news, but the wiki already knew.

Well, if there's one advantage, a robot-form-packed Starscream means his head crest isn't bent out of shape from the get-go.

Also, what episodes are on the DVD? Frustratingly, Seibertron doesn't seem to have pacs of the DVD itself, so I can't see what they are. The box just says "3 episodes".

No, that's pretty common with the FE Bumblebee mold.
Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

Love the look of that Bumblebee, but Starscream just looks kinda knockoffish to me. Had this seen a stateside release I would've gotten it regardless, but I don't like it enough to even consider importing it, ah well.

Nah, I've got three versions of the mold already. The chest doesn't always stay totally locked down when you move his arms, but this is the first one where it won't quite go into the right position at all.

Episodes on the DVD are S109 Convoy, S113 Sick Mind and S114 Out of His Head. Presumably so you have stuff with MECH, Bumblebee and Starscream.

Nice looking sculpts.

*Pfft*

Okay, time to figure out which Cobra guys to use as MECH soldiers.

If this set hits my area (Canada) like the rumors suggest, I may pick it up. But only then.

I have an F.E. Screamer, but never got 'Bee. Him plus more human figures (I really dug the ones in the last multipack) might be enough for a purchase. But only at regular retail.

That SS deco makes me think of Cyb. Skywarp, but with sculpt, it's also even more feminine now.
