    Well, that certainly came out of nowhere. Cool repaint ideas, though.

    Hmmm... Scourge as Galvatron and Leobreaker as OP???

    And Classics Legends??? Hmmm... I guess LOC has a new meaning now...

    not so much OP as Lioconvoy...

    I like the idea of referencing Japanese figures (specifically BW2) with current international molds, but I dont like LOC so I wont be buying these. Besides, I already have the real BW2 Galvatron :drunk

    Hmmmmm... The BWII guys. Yes, that will do quite nicely. I'll take 'em.

    At least 10,000 times more interesting than a Nemsis Breaker and Cryotek repaint.

    Is it me or does Scourge looks more like Trypticon than BW2 Galvatron?

    And come to think of it Trypticon could work for a name for this mold, too.

    Eeeenteresting!

    LB looks pretty darn good in LC's colors.

    I wonder how certain the seller is that Scourge is supposed to be BW2 Galvy, though. It stands to reason that's who it would be given the pairing, but the color layout looks more like Trypticon to me. (And the name would even make sense, given Scourge's 3 heads.)

    Wow, these are really cool. They'll be the first LOC that I pick up actually. Now I kinda hope that maybe they'll jam a repaint of Voyager LeoBreaker as Leo Prime into the tail end of the Classic line with all the other repaints that are bound to popup. I mean they have Minicons, why not a few good Cybertron repaints to go along with the 37 different Seekers that we'll probably get?

    Well the LioConvoy idea is interesting, I'd love to see more LoCs... but that is NOT Galvatron, or hasn't anyone noticed he has an autobot logo on his leg?

    Sorry to say this but repainting Leo Breaker as BWII Lio Convoy SIMPLY doesn't work for me but I may bite that Scourge X Galvatron thing though. (Hee hee!) :D

    It might be a throwoff, since they used to miscolor the faction symbols of larger figures to throw people off. But the tampo seems excessive for a tiny figure testshot... I admit on closer look, those colors are Trypticon spot on.

    That LoC 'Galvatron' really looks like Trypticon- he even has the orange panels, white rear cannons, and greenish chest. Why didn't they do a main line repaint like this? Same for the LoC Lio Convoy.

    Click the link under the image in my signature, they're all there.

    This is actually a really great idea, Trypticon and Lio Convoy are characters that are more obscure and wouldn't normally get repaints, more Classics LOCs could be a great way to get characters we never had before over here.
