    They love the minicons and what not over there. Armada had caseloads of the lil buggers. Here's hoping for faction-less blind-pack drones!

    Regardless of the widespread hate that's bound to follow, I still think Bombshock is an amazing toy in many aspects (yes, this guy will continue to draw my good words whenever possible), and judging by the enhanced attention to visual detail that Japanese figures tend to have, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see a couple of otherwise mediocre toys get transformed into works of art that draw quite a lot of good praise.

    ... and yes, I realize that my comment was basically a literary combiner in its own right.

    Curious as to what repaints --if any-- may come from this. Don't know if I'd get any, think I've long since gotten any I wanted, but still would like to see if they do anything "new."

    The repaint possibility for the last few molds released has me excited. I'd love a Terrorcon inspired deco of the Dinobots. Heavy Tread and Undertow are fantastic molds and repainted into new characters would make them instant buys for me.

    Really? I thought our nations were friends. What did Japan do to deserve this?

    Damn Sol, that's a good idea for a repaint for Undertow. Now I want Leadfoot in G2 colors too

    Hate flows with this line. I for one LOVED them, I have every set, and every Commander if not multiples.

    If I had to say something about the line that was the low point its only the Jet Drones. I loved everything else. Hell, I never had any problems with double clutch or mudslinger.

    The later lines were absolutley fantastic. The Grimskull set was fantasic. Heavy tread undertwo and skyhammer ROCK.

    I LOVE the minicons. Especially the one that came with Skyhammer.

    Japan is pretty lucky. I would LOVE to have a PCC line pop back up because im not touching any TFP stuff...

    What do you want to bet Takara will throw out Hasbro's drone molds and make their own that either have real hands and feet or actual robot modes?

    If we get redecos, I'm totally on board. I have everyone except Salvage (still need to pick him up since I like the mini-con he comes with) and multiples of several (Spastic, Crankcase, Smolder, Sledge).

    I'm all for another Micron Booster box of the PCC mini-cons as long as any chase is guaranteed one per box.

    I'm one of those guys who never even gave the line a fair chance (Dino-pope ruled though) so potential recolors have promise.
