The gold in some of the pictures looks more like rose gold.

The finish looks rather disappointing.

Now, where's that gif?

I often think of Dirge and Long Haul as they were the two Cons left behind to guard the lake. Pretty sure Dirge got jumped by the Bots in this set

Beachcomber could do with some company.... I'm interested in only the Starscream mold, however.

Not a fan of this (CW) version of Starscream... as the toy only vaguely looked like Starscream because of the red, blue and white - something that a golden toy doesn't have.
Since the 2006 Classics Starscream mould is apparently worn out, I would have preferred some other toy/character than the CW Starscream for this.

I agree. Especially since the art shows a very accurate Starscream, this guy just looks like an Aerialbot. The SG one looked more like Jetfire than Starscream with Jetfire’s colours.

Why Omega Supreme in the corner?
