    I doubt these are the Premium Series repaints and rather just more exclusives to feed into the demand. I wish there was more done to change these up, rather than just adding AllSpark Power blue to it. Regardless, I'll get them anyways. I just can't get enough of 'em and the cylinderical packaging is always nice.

    Man, I hope those aren't the premiums. That blue looks awful on every single one of them.

    wow. How much light blue paint did Hasbro get? Was there a sale or something?

    Also, wow. it made Barricade's face REALLY ugly.

    /fails to understand.

    That said Barricade and Bumblebee, and maybe Jazz even look the better for it.

    Brawl doesn't though.

    Might get them.

    A big pass on these. The blue just doesn't cut it.
    I'll wait for the premiums instead.

    What's the point to these? I mean, they don't look metallic so they're not the Premium Series. Except for the ugly light blue, there's really no difference. These will get a big ol' pass from me.

    Demand. Deluxes are selling like crazy. Stores want exclusives. Hasbro provides and changes them up slightly, getting both parents and some collectors to buy. Hasbro and (in this case) Target make money. Hasbro = :) . Target = :)

    seriously what the hell? yeah there is demand, but not for crappy repainted figures. people are still in demand of the first run of figures that hasbro couldnt even provide the first time around. these are just ugly. this is a lazy attempt on hasbros part to meet demand with a half ass product.
