    Meh. Between the ugly repaints and the most likely mistransformed combination mode, these pics made me sad. :( 

    That bright green does not look good with the brownish colors of the limbs. Surely those figures don't go together. Right?

    ...really? Another Mudflap repaint? I can still find like 70 of those things in town of both paint jobs, nobody wants those two, let alone a third.

    What, you don't want "Sunfaded Mudflap"?

    Maybe they figured it need a more dramatic paint app to sell since the version you mention is clogging up shelves everywhere. There are tons of those in my area too.

    Well, that's somewhat interesting... people were saying before that the 5-pack guys don't have mini-con ports like the 2-pack guys do, so there's little chance of Hasbro swapping a 2-packer into a 5-pack (like, for Huffer into Menasor) and putting the 2-packers gang-molded mini-con into a pack with the 5-packer. But, this shot clearly shows that at least one of the Wave 2 5-packers does have a mini-con port. So maybe the Huffer -> Menasor idea can still happen.

    Is Hasbro serious with Elita's paint deco? That looks nothing like how she was in ROTF. They can't pull that shtick where they say they had no good reference - the film came out a year ago, and it was a repaint anyway.

    Ugh. First it's a repaint of Chromia, now it's these wacky colors.

    Agreed. One hell of a pass there.

    And same goes for the other 2. Can't say I'm impressed.

    Hasbro know all too well that Chromia and Mudflap are rotting on shelves worldwide. They probably also figure large orders won't come back in until toys for the NEXT movie are offered to retailers, so this is their chance to squeeze a little extra revenue out of molds few people are bothered with.

    In short: Hasbro are offloading toys they know are low in demand.

    I might pick up Elita just to complete the bike sisters, but the other two are easy passes for me.

    So hey! Elita-1 wasn't a badly photoshopped promo pic after all, she really is black/brown?!!

    Does that mean she isn't the official third bike sister?..
