    so far we've only had the Cliffjumper/Tailgate bodyshare, though both, in the long run, were fairly minor characters. Vehicons too. Do you think they'll re-use body types like in Animated? or are they trying to keep everything more seperate this time around?

    In flashbacks at least, I can realistically see characters with the same character model as Bumblebee and Ratchet.

    They used slightly edited versions of Cliffjumper and Bumblebee's vehicle modes in Speed metal.

    Hasbro always produces repaints. Its a matter of covering costs and keeping the company going forward...

    I think there will be repaints...

    I cant wait for these figures! Dec seems so far off... Especially because the show is on now... Guess theyll re-release the show from the begining again along with the figures?

    I'm going to heavily guess that Dreadwind will be a recolor of Skyquake's model, possibly with a new head.

    I expect we'll see more design re-use, particularly if the Seekers show up, even though they said they want to keep Starscream's design unique. There might be some changes and tweaks on each one for more individuality, but they'd all probably still be based around a core Starscream-like design.

    That's probably the truth...
