    The Brawl and Swindle pics look new, but I'm not sure if the Onslaught image is the same or a new one.

    For the first time ever, i'm glad the photoshop versions will be misrepresentations. I really hope the dull, flat colors that Hasbro uses will be used for these guys.

    I agree that the duller more realistic colors looked best, but based on what Hasbro had on display at Toy Fair, it looks like we're getting exactly what these pictures show: an absolute clusterf*ck of neon colors.

    Yea. I have my fingers crossed that those were prototypes, and when mass production hits they'll change.

    Either way, still buying them.

    I do hope that the Combaticons don't appear as neon on the actual toy release. But, I'll be picking them up no matter what.

    I like the look of Optimus and Shockwave. They both look really accurate to the game. However, I think I'll pass on Jazz. I don't like how he has the whole car on his upper torso and nothing on his legs. He looks awful.

    I could have sworn somebody at toyfair said those were not the final colours.

    Regardless, even though I'd prefer a gold Blast Off, I kinda dig drug trip Vortex.

    I appreciate the Energon Bruticus Maximus homage, but I'd far prefer game-accurate colors.

    A Hasbro rep apparently did.

    And I hope he/she was right. Really don't like these colors at all. Vastly prefer the game-accurate decos as seen in the GI article.

    I think both color schemes are good in different ways. The Game colors are more "realish" but also duller. These Bruticus Maximus colors are brighter more interesting fun and toy-like (a good thing) but also just a tad over bright imo.

    Neither of course are actual G1 colors. Which I'm ok with. But I'll be very curious if Takara does a G1 accurate deco for this guy.


    Either way I can not WAIT for these toys.


    -ZacWilliam, REALLY hopes we get an Autobot team (preferably earth forms) in the same general style in 2013. Aerialbots prefered, but I'd take either of the others too. :)

    I actually like the neon colors (a G2ish vibe, though not accurate to the G2 Combaticons anyways). I wouldn't mind getting these as redecos as long as the game-accurate decos are released too.

    I'd like to buy "dull" limbs, but blue+green Onslaught. Closest to G1 you can get IMHO. (there is no grey vortex, but bright red+purple just doesn't fit at all---the gold/bronze at least will look OK with the others)

    I do hope they're in the first colors we saw, but either way I'll be picking them up.

    Vortex I don't mind as much, but Blast-Off... *shudder* I think having him purple with Onslaught being blue makes the combined mode look too blue/purple. It's like the Kool-Aid man, if he were filled with grape Kool-Aid and wearing yellow and green pants.
