    Are you kidding me?! I'll get the decepticon since that mold was once a autobot but that phone mold is its 3rd time recolored and second as autobot. I actually prefer the color scheme for hacker x-3 as a decepticon rather than an autobot. But seriously, if they want to keep milking this whole thing into 2008 with just repaints is sad. They really needed to another mold or two to freshen things up, not really good to keep recycling repaints in hopes of a continuing a line when Hasbro can not even make customer demand right now.

    Tell it! The real gear toys seem to always be the last ones on the shelves....that and those stupid things that turn into fake real things and then into weapons.

    Argh, a wave of just repaints again. Not to mention the next wave of Target scouts is of course repaints (as is that whole line).

    The camera mold is by far the best in the real gear stuff

    I like the red phone, I love the camera too but I was hoping they would give us something more as a nod to Reflector this time.

    Oh well I will still buy them :)

    I passed on Power Up the first time around b/c of the gaudy neon green, so I'm glad to see the mold in a more desirable color scheme. Cell phone may not the best mold, but the red does look sharp. Passed on the camera too (not sure why) so he's a definate buy for me.

    I agree on all counts here :) 

    The downside to this [potentially] is that since many of the RGs have been clogging pegs, these guys could end up being a bit harder to find. Then again, the Christmas rush hasn't happened yet either. I certainly hope this isn't the case though, though I do remember another line having a similar effect on new toys and the subline itself*cough cough*Alts*cough cough*

    these things are everywhere up here, they are way over priced, and they weren't even in the movie

    On the other hand, if they were make the "Nokia-bot" from the movie, it would sell like hotcakes.

    I do love these little bastards. But I wish they'd throw us another mold or two--or at least do a full round of repaints before tripling up on any of the molds.

    Not more of these guys....
    The Decepticon camera might almost be a decent classics Reflector stand-in... if you bought 3 and did a little bashing.... probably not worth it.

    I like T-34. He's closer looking to my camera. Except mine is smaller. Tech these days. :D

    They need new molds. I'll pick up Camera bot and the game one, but I'll pass on the phone one just because I already have the other two.

    I like the camera and game. Don't like the red phone.

    Sure would be nice if Hasbro actually added new toys to this line instead of tons of repaints. Plenty of other devices to add to the Real Gear lineup.
