I'm pretty certain Blackout wasn't as dark a blue in the movie as his Premium toy. The rotor's colors may be more accurate on the Premium than the original, and of course the 4500X on the tail. The Scorponok is definitely more accurate on the Premium. Maybe do some part-swapping if it helps...*shrugs*

It's ironic how some, if not most, of the Premium versions manage to **** up the vehicle mode deco just to make it look different than the original...

But, what do I know?
 

Got a complaint?

Yeh, the Premium seems a bit too influenced by everyone equating Blackout with Soundwave. He looks better in the darker colours IMO - what we really need is a flatter, greyer one, neither of the decos are quite there in terms of accuracy. Good thing I quite like the mould (despite its' shortness).

Having transformed The Fallen, he's actually kinda awesome. I can see why he's not everyone's cup of tea, but he's nice and flexible and displays well with other toys. I can buy the alt mode to be honest - similar sort of thing to Megatron's from the first film. Those feet are cool too.

Also had Ransack turn up in the past hour, having accidentally been delivered next door. Fair play to all those who hyped him, he's a great little figure - different and charming without being stupid. Great alt mode, very fitting robot mode - he looks very old and old-fashioned. He'd have looked superb on-screen.

Bludgeon is as glorious as he seems.
 

No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

Got Ravage and Dart (who was basically free - job lot win for less than Ravage's RRP FTW). Not transformed Ravage, but he's actually pretty good in cat mode (i.e. the one mode anyone gives a shit about). Dart's pretty lousy, being a Scout - clashing colours, buts that fall off, the half-wheels. Rubbish!

Got ROTF Leader Megatron... he's not bad, actually. Gambled on a cheapo one off ebay missing the missile on the grounds that all the projectiles for my ROTF toys are in a tub unused because they don't look good on the toys, and glad I did. Like the first Megatron, he's not bad, but I'm glad I didn't stump up the RRP. Love the soundchip, and the way his arm just falls off.

Sorry, Reverb. Colour scheme is lifted straight from this chap - who amazingly is only a slightly worse toy considering he's about 20 years older. Both, however, are crap and should be avoided.

Well..that is kind of funny. The Soundwave toy was the first ROTF toy I bought. Really the worst ROTF toy I own. Well, hrm..let me think, yeap, he is rather dysfunctional. I wish he had more of role in the movie than the Stalkertron....

Anyway (notice how I like to add tron to most words to make it a robot, then lead into anyway...)

There are quite a few ROTF toys that I like including Bumblebee (HA) and Barricade (HA) as well as Prime and Devy (chibi sized) but for all the trash people talk about the large version, I still likes it.
