    And these are still out in some places under the other Universe tag... Was hoping for some different ones at least.

    On the one hand, I want to say that they're not even trying. On the other, these ARE pretty damn recent figs. I doubt they'd want to bother doing updated sculpts for figures that in some cases are still available in some places.

    Judging by the packaging, that's where there are heading. Boo on not repainting Backstop into Rhinox.

    Hell, I'd have been happy with Ramhorn. Anything else other than Backstop.

    Why stop there when we could have seen Brakedown made into a Lightspeed and the Bushguard mold done up in Outback colors.

    I don't understand why re releases of old toys for dollar stores would be disappointing at all to anybody? Hasbro has been putting these out for a while now this is just a package refresh. Personally I have never seen this line in real life because I don't go to dollar stores. I would be highly annoyed if Hasbro created new or exclusive product for them and I had to go track it down

    I don't mind these, since I kinda gave Cybertron a miss the first time round.

    Sure they can't distribute Cosmos, Warpath or Wheelie so anyone can find it, but this crap that's been out for two years already...... Well I'll be seeing that for another two years. Now with spiffy 25th anniversary logo! FU Hasbro.
