    At this rate, these things will be clogging the shelves till next Christmas.

    Though it does prove to us that Hasbro is going full steam ahead with the movie line and will wait on Animated/Classics 2.0.

    These repaints aren't bad, but I just don't see myself buying them, except for the video game handheld's repaint. The fact that his previous release had ugly colors, and his repaint now has a really nice color scheme, is a reason good enough for me to buy the repaint.

    Oh yeah, I forgot.....1st! lol.

    I am SO glad I decided not to complete the line. Most of these repaints just look like they're being released for the sake of being released (little effort) now.

    I'm positive that says "Midnighter" and not "Mionighter." :lol 

    Mottos for these are awesome, and I was wondering how long it'd take for Longview to get repainted. I've never gotten a single Real Gear - I know! - but at least I'll have some decent choices to consider next year.

    EDIT: Yay for the spelling fix.

    Well, there are the inevitable Longview and Meantime repaints. That just leaves Zoom Out. And ooh, I like that blue on Farsight! I know some folks wanted a green "Cosmos" repaint, but I prefer it this way. And unlike some of the other Real Gears, this is a mold I won't have any trouble buying a second time.

    Midnighter looks pleasantly monochrome. Hmm, his name is "Midnighter" and his motto is "never a minute of peace".... could his dastardly Decepticon powers be to wake people up at all hours with an annoying beeping alarm? :p

    I'm liking Farsight, but then again he's the best RGR mold IMO.

    Hmm, I missed out on Meantime, guess I can pick up Midnighter then.:)  Looks like I may stick with picking up the original Longview deco, but not until he goes on clearance.

    Why you gotta make me buy so much of your stuff?

    Going to have to give them new names, though. But hell, more LOL...I mean, Real Gears the better!

    I'm not a huge fan of that shade of blue on Farsight, but Midnighter looks cool.

    PASS.

    Actually, there is little reason to hit the stores these days since I found my MP Starscream.

    Wake me up when the animated figures are out.

    Too bad the clocks no longer have any significance to the movie (or any future sequel). Eg, most of the early ones displayed 7:47 while Meantime displayed 5:17, the date the second theatrical trailer was released online.

    Midnighter here is 4:35 :(

    I hope the success of this subline means Hasbro's going to continue doing basics for TFAnimated [and mabye classics?]

    I'd also love a basic-sized repaint line of some sort for old BW/BM/JapaneseBW molds.

    Slim pickings... don't suppose any of the UT shows started that day, huh?

    Just for that suggestion, you deserve a free MP Starscream or something. :D  A US release of Dead End in any colors, Break, Stampy, and repaints of so many others would rock, given that Beast Wars gave us very few and only Buzzclaw has received any love recently (a fact I appreciate, love him).
