    If this has been posted, please delete. I'm pretty sure I haven't seen it here yet though.

    Anyway, I origianlly found this on The Allspark, so credit is where credit is due.

    Thanks to an auction on TaoBao, it looks like some of the Cybertron scouts have came in the Generations Line. It looks like Generations packaging, but actually doesn't have Generations on the package. Kind of like the recent Mini-Cons.

    The three scouts that showed up are Undermine, Wreckloose, and Backstop.

    Backstop this time had been repainted, while Undermine and Wreckloose remain the same.

    Even a good repaint won't convince me to buy Backstop.

    He's that bad of a toy.

    I'm guessing these are going to be family dollar/discount store stock.

    IMO I'd not mind owning the green dino as I own the autobot repaint and its a nifty design and the back stop repaint I guess is ok but that toy needs a fair bit more help then new colours

    Undermine has a sad face, no repaint for him.

    I never owned a wreckloose, from what I've gathered he's quite a good cybertron scout, don't own backstop either but from what I've heard I never intend to.

    I would actually totally pick up that Backstop. I'm under no illusions that he is a good mold, but he's sort of endearing.

    I really don't understand all the hate for Backstop. He really is a pretty nice repsentation of his on screen character and his leg transformation is creative and different especially for a scout. Perhaps the only drawback is his butt scoop hand but even then its seriously not that bad. I love that little guy and have been dieing for a Rhinox repaint for years, at least he's finally at gotten one repaint.

    He has two repaints if you count Hasbro's version as one.

    ...and Hasbro was on such a good role too. Well shitty repaints of terrible toys, were bound to happen eventually for this line. They are probably just crappy "filler fodder" until they produce better figures. :p

    Backstop and Wreckloose are bought on sight, since I love the former and missed out on the latter.

    I don't understand the point of these dollar store/big lots/ dollar generals stocking up on these when they price them as much as the new deluxe figures and sometimes even more. our big lots has a ton of these in the older packaging and they are running about $9 a piece!!!

    i saw a couple different ones at a dollar general for around $7... no thanks!

    So is Wreckloose any good, in peoples opinions? I think he looks great in Beast-mode, but sub-par in Bot-mode.

    I've been intrigued by the Undermine figure for a while but never gotten it, so I might finally pick it up. Might get Wreckloose too, depending on the price.
