    I know, I know - this thread is useless without pics. No, I didn't take any, sadly. I thought they had already been spotted. I did find them at a local TRU today, a TRU in Overland Park, KS.

    You don't happen to remember how the Bombshock dude repaint looked in person, did you? I'm kinda sorta interested in him.

    I wasn't impressed. I prefer the original deco on him. I didn't like the browns on the new deco at all.

    The only one that was tempting in the slightest was the plane redeco. I like the red on him - just not enough to buy it. Had he been black and red he would have been sold. My son has the silver version. One is enough.

    It's like a dark muddy brown. Looks decent enough, though I think Bombshock looks a little better.

    *got the Wave 3 PCC stuff from the Club Store a few weeks back*

    Ah, the "who cares?" wave.

    Though when the Destrons/Protectobots sets come out, I might bite.

    I've got mine here courtesy of Kapow Toys.

    Stakeout's great, it's a shame that not all the black was repainted in the blue. I think they made a mistake by not including new limbs for him, only the chopper drone, much improved over it's predecessor, really fits the traditional Protectobot theme.

    Sadly the 3 2packs aren't so good. yeah, Steelshot is very nice but the colours would work better on a Decepticon and his Minicon really needs to be clear like the others and not pinky red. Windburn and Darkstream have the wrong Minicons: Windburn is the only one of the three capable of holding the axe so he should have got it plus the axe would have fitted under the helicopter as a chin gun. Instead Darkstream has the axe and he can't hold it, despite what the instructions show, because his peg hole isn't deep enough to real the 5mm rings higher up the handle. Windburn & Darkstream both have awful paintjobs but decent Minicons.

    If anyone needs pics of the repaints,

    1. Bombshock repaint into Steelshot, its pretty much a "sand" version camo, with a very fugly solid red (with black arms) Backwind repaint.

    2. Skyburst repaint into Darkscream, red replaces his blue in bot mode, comes with a icy repaint of Chopster that he CANNOT HOLD. (funny, instruction shows him holding it)

    3. Searchlight repainted into Windburn, which comes with gold/yellow spinners, a more reddish look in general, and a green/black repaint of Caliburst whose gears are not painted.

    Not hugely fussed on this wave myself, so for once I won't be too bothered if Hasbro Europe pass on it!

    I like the PCC's, especially after you remove the ugly blue connector plugs and sell off the drones and minicons, they do make decent scouts though, once you remove all the gimmicks. Seriously, this was a nice thought but horrible execution for both the 2 and 5 packs.
