    But am I seriously the only one whose noticed the homage here? I've seen people on the boards and in stores going "wtf, this color scheme makes no sense, stupid repaints, etc."

    Do the colors make any more sense to anybody else now...or am I just crazy?

    I see it, but it's a stretch.

    I never really gave the FABs more than half a glance, but I think you might be onto something. Personally, I'm very suprised that they didn't repaint Ironhide red in homage to G1 and they didn't repaint Jazz and ricochet or smokescreen or any of those other really similarly molded transformers.

    Actually, Jazz is getting a Smokescreen repaint.

    I can see the homage, too. Though I see more of G2 Power Master Ironhide than the Gobot, but that's the one I have so...

    Yeah I saw all those fancy FAB repaints today. Nice to see a comparison pic, it's a tad less WTF now.
