    Lame repaint. I may repurpose him as movie Acid Storm or something, just to get a new character.

    Still, since it's Target, they will be easily available, and discounted quickly. They are the best for that!

    Yeah, these did hit the shelves pretty quick after we became aware of them.

    Is it just me, or is there generally less product slipping out early, under the radar, these days?

    How could you miss them???

    They are truly fucking awful. They make most G2 toys look like pastel impressons of a summer meadow.

    Hold on...there's actually four different packs. If you look closely at the packs behind the front two...that's the Arcee and Tail Whip pack!

    I want them all because I'm just horrible. And appreciate repaints. What a monster.

    These will be extra sweet when target has to put them on 50% clearance in a few months.

    Really? Screw the children customers? :rolleyes: 

    I personally can't wait to see these show up in my area! I really like the bright colors and think they'll display pretty nicely. I'll definitely be getting the Sideswipe/Barricade pack and the Bumblebee/Thrust (Ramjet, anyone?) pack!

    I hope someone buys and gets pics up of the Ice Cream Twins. I heard they added more to their deco, I'm curious as to what all it is.

    A) the "children customers" are a bigger percentage of the market than we supposed adults, therefore Hasbro is never going to put them as lower priority.

    B) the release of these reDECOS (not repaints) as TARGET EXCLUSIVES has NOTHING TO DO with how fast or how many of the mainline Generations toys come out

    C) there is absolutely no correlation between toys being recolored and children customers. Even if adults were the only thing on the market, toys would still be recolored.

    Barricade has the yellow and blue checks of the City of London Police. I guess he is supposed to be a British police car this time then? Because that would be kind of cool.

    Unless there are police vehicles in the US with the same pattern on the side?
