    Does anyone else think Hasbro will make a Premium line for TF2 and possibly Animated(I already thought of how Lockdown would look Premium, and it's sweet.)? I personally think they will because Hasbro loves making repaints and If it worked for TF1, why not for TF2? I just don't want to end up buying the awesome figures from TF2 and see them repainted even awesomer when I've already spent my money on them.

    Well, one thing's for sure -- I'm not going to run out and buy all the TF2 Movie figures straightaway. I'll wait until either people start selling their loose collections on Ebay for a fraction of retail, OR until they announce the inevitable upgrade Premium repaints in order to further milk the molds.

    ...And MARK MY WORDS: We have not seen the end of these TF1 movie molds.

    Fool me once, Hasbro, shame on you. Fool me two or more times, shame on me.

    You should never do that. You gotta exercise some self-restraint, dude.

    Yes, that's a new concept to me.

    In all fairness, though, the Premiums were born from retailer desire for more TF Movie toys than were planned. For TF2, I think Hasbro will have more product planned, or at the least, some alternatives and backups to expand the line, rather than four different decos of CC Bumblebee and Jazz. Although, if TF2 has a bigger cast, it will probably be easier since there will be more toys made to do redecos of.

    Well, it depends. What if TF2 looks like it should the first time around? I think we should be able to tell if their of ordinary quality of not. TF2 is going to rock though!

    Probably!

    But I don't care either way.
