    If I knew this was coming, I probably wouldn't have bought the first versions and instead held out for these. I might be in the minority here, but I hate having to buy the same molds over and over again simply because they got a new paint job. No sale.

    Why are they waiting until 2008 to release more? I don't think that people are really going to care about movie toys at that point.

    YES I haven't bought the Leader Megatron yet, so i'm happy if they make leader Megs in this Premium line.

    Also I want to see

    Bonecrusher
    Camaro Concept Bumblebee
    Barricade

    Please do NOT release Lawson exclusive Bumblebee or I will be extremely pissed. I paid $30 for that.

    I would not object to a gold '08 Camaro though. :D

    Barricade's pretty damn accurate already. I'd like to see Bonecrusher, Leader Megs, Blackout, maybe a couple others. Starscream could be cool.

    And Crisis... I like buying repaints if they're a mold I find interesting. I have regular Voyager OP and the Robovision and soon will have the G1 repaint, as well as all the releases of the Voyager Screamer mold. The Megs that comes out tomorrow just makes me regret buying the blue one...

    Well, I'm now thinking that I'll get the regular one when he inevitably goes on sale at TRU Canada (Christmas prices).

    And IF we get the metal version up here, I'll decide what to do then.

    So very glad I waited on Leader Megs.

    The mold (IMO) is rather meh, but at least it will display rather well with a proper paintjob, not like the horrid apps it has now.

    Hasbro, you can't call Ratchet 'premium' unless you bother to actually paint his vehicle mode details. Which you didn't.

    I'm gonna be interested in seeing how the hell they're gonna do Ironhide, given he's almost totally black.

    Agreed. Sheesh. "We'll release the toys as they should have been done originally, now that you've already all gone and bought the first versions."

    Oh well... we fell for it, I guess. And frankly, I think it's a smart thing to do.... all the awesome repaints on these boards (particularly of Megatron and Brawl) prove that these molds only live up to their full potential when given a decent paintjob. And it's an acknowledgement of the collector market, since I suspect it will be mostly collectors who seek out these Premium figures.

    I predict eBay will soon be flooded with "version 1.0," dishwater-grey Leader Megatrons..... :p

    IF they do Ironhide. If they do, maybe they will have silver drybrush parts along the edges to simulate battle damage, wear and tear.
    I wonder if they will make a Silver Starscream.
