I just saw a whole shelf of these at Target in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. They did a nice job with them, packaging and connecting the DVD to the box etc. etc.
I never expected to see Scuba Baroness as well. But I like the fact that it's not some repacked sculpt. It's a brand new edition. NO wacky comic colors. A totally new figure.
I like the "glowing" effect SE, and looks better in hand. But the drawback is that (you're right Shogi) it really only functions in the diorama.
It'll be awesome in the winter though, to take some snapshots of the irradiated SE in the snow. I'm looking forward to that.

I love the set. We watched the DVD lastnight and i felt like i was 11 again. And my girl seeing it for the fist time could not stop laughing at the jokes and the remarks. But loved it.

i love this set....much more than set 2.
snake eyes is great, i love transluscent figures too. in a rare move, left the rubberband around the canister, so mine is permanently holding the canister. also gave him baroness' gun, cuz it looks like the one he drops when the bear surprises him.
stalker is nice....never thought id own a stalker repaint, but he and his JUMP are permanently sitting on the RAM. looks great. (as great as it can seeing the handlebars on the new RAM, force the figure to sit much more upright than the old RAM. looks more like hes just cruising around base, rather than charging into battle)
baroness is great....i made her a mini diorama where she is swimming (hanging) over the heavy water. i also had to paint the goggles so i wouldnt see those horribly painted glasses that make her look like a racoon. (painted silver, on the inside....came out pretty good) i thank hasbro for doing that figure...they couldve taken an easier route and given us destro with that comic pack stormshadow cloak....but they really made a pretty nice figure.
cobra trooper will probably end up in a vehicle.
the accessories are above and beyond too...the elements didnt have to be removable from the cart, but they are, and its a great feature. the texture of the elements is great too. hasbro couldve gone the cheap route and did colored decals. the cart is nice too and to my surprise---the wheels all sit flat!
if the first two parts of the MASS is any indication of the completed piece, were in for a real sweet treat! what a great addition to our collections!
i thank hasbro for a great set. i really do. but i have to cite this set as a great example of how hasbro somtimes runs with the ball...yet other times drops it.
come on hasbro, times are tough, yet we hang on....run, hasbro run!

Ehhh... given how well Torpedo was done, and the Eels are looking, I was expecting a lot more from the Baroness figure.
Has Hasbro given any indication when we might see figures with the other two elements?

Great review. I didn't mind the lack of some accessories as it's less to lose while moving the figures from one location to another. I'm not keen on this push-cart as those cubes keep falling out but I plan on fixing that.
Overall, it's a good set and well worth the $20.
