    I'm passing most of them. Not because I have anything against repaints, but most of them don't interest me at all. I'll more than likely get Blades, but only to repaint/kitbash into Megatron. I'll most definetly be getting Tread Bolt, but again, for a kitbash. Would be kinda funny if the Ultra Scourge listing turned out to be a Onslaught repaint, imo.

    Most of the Voyagers I'll be passing on. The 2packs however will be too good to not pass up if I can find them.

    As for the new molds, if Storm Cloud goes on sale I'll have to get him - I LOVE that colorscheme and actually like it better than Powerglide's.

    Yeah, I'm passing on the majority of them too. I want Dropshot simply b/c I think it's one of the best TF molds ever and I'll buy the 2 packs, of which I'll probably sell Ratbat immediately. The rest I'll leave on the shelves for someone else.

    passed in both voyagers. why does it seem that every target that put them out has the boxes wrecked. was there like a boat accident on the way from china? i read sightings a few places in NY, RI and TX where the boxes have been destroyed.

    I'll be passing on them too, because none of them really interest me. It has nothing to do with them being repaints.

    The original "classics" line seemed special.
    now with the repaints of cybertron figs that dont fit,not so much...

    Not interested in those, so yeah I'll pass. Ratbat is tempting since I like the mold though...

    No it wasn't. Classics Devastator and the legends were repaints.

    The only repaints that I am thinking about getting are Silverstreak (if they fix the sticky paint problem) and Sideswipe. Other than these two, I am passing on Universe/Classics figures.

    I am too. Mainly because I think Hasbro is being lazy.

    Not automatically.

    I'm getting the 2-packs, will probably skip Blaster since I don't care for the character, and I may pick up Treadbolt.

    It's on a figure-by-figure basis for me.

    I'm not interested in many of these repaints either.

    The way I see it, it's more "Universe 2" than "Classics 2", and perhaps better compared to Takara's "Robotmasters".

    I don't plan to skip a bunch of the repaints.

    I'm getting:

    Bluestreak. (I don't care what his real name is)
    Sideswipe.
    Ratchet.
    Acidstorm or whatever his name is. (need two of him for a kitbash)
