    We've seen them, but no release date was heard. Will be nice for those who are interested in these.

    ironhide actually doesn't look that bad IMO. he just needs to be transformed right and painted with a gold stripe and he's perfect

    I was looking forward to the G1 Starscream deco, less so now. The Target exclusive from movie 1 is fine with me.

    Digging that Ironhide, though. I hope he makes it stateside.

    If it could be gotten for *super* cheap, I'd get the Starscream to leave in jet mode and pretend it transforms into E.J. Su's IDW Starscream.

    Starscream looks okay, but the Ironhide looks nice (a bit better than the DotM Cannon Force toy). I'd like to pick both of these up, but I'm not going to stress it. I can't imagine these selling out very quickly.

    I hope that pre-orders for these Asian markets exclusives come up soon. I want a lot of them.

    I like SS, but I'll pass on Ironhide. I liked the cannon force Ironhide color scheme better.

    Ironhide is meh at best.

    The leader Starscream mold is so good it deserves to get multipe repaints. This, however, is not an interesting repaint. There already is a movie Starscream so why would I buy one in the G1 colors (that look bad on this mold IMO).

    Now, if they'd release it in a Blue Angels deco (Thundercracker) or a stealth black deco (Skywarp)...then I would definitely buy.

    If they would have given Iron Hide a G1-ish head sculpt, that would have been the shit. So pass. The Starscream just doesnt work, for me. Pass on that too.

    Perhaps. I'm not really sure of that at all though. After all, while the jury's still out, the Asia Exclusives like Springer, Cliffjumper nad Brawn that did as you suggest have been described as 'Frankenseined'.

    There's not a single thing that needs redeemed from "movie anything"

    I dig both of these quite a bit, I'd pick them up if they weren't exclusives

    These will remain the movie characters for me, not the G1 characters.

    Still, these are the color schemes the two should have had originally.

    Interesting, and I'm sure there are those that like them, but (as usual) proving why the G1 colouring wouldn't and doesn't work with the Movie aesthetic. Will be sticking with my MPM Leader Starscream, personally.

    Repainted Movie Leaders uinthe Classics line? No thanks. Movie character designs have their place and it ain't in the Classics line.

    1. These are Asian HASBRO market releases (as in, China, Singapore etc.), not "Japan".

    2. We've known that for a while.
