    Hasbro have updated their Transformers section with some images of three new Real gear repaints.

    A Red Autobot Speed Dial repaint:
    Highline 1070
    HIGHLINE 1070 knows where you're at. Any creature he establishes a connection with, either physically, or through his communications system is saved in his extensive target list. Those that get labeled as DECEPTICONS, he tracks continually, waiting for them to be in a perfect spot for an ambush. Then, he lays traps designed specifically for each enemy, and moves in to finish them off.


    A Power Up Blue Autobot repaint:
    Hacker X-3
    According to HACKER X-3, there's no such thing as secret information. He looks at computer security as a personal challenge, not because he wants whatever's behind it for himself, but because he likes to share the things he discovers with the world. The DECEPTICONS are fond of secrets, which bugs him, so he goes out of his way to share their private plans with as many AUTOBOTS as possible.


    And a Black Spyshot Decepticon repaint:
    Foton T-34
    PHOTON T-34 works alone. He doesn't like other robots getting in the way of his work, which is sabotaging AUTOBOT structures. Special sensors in his lenses let him target and analyze the worst weakness of any structure. He uses this data to plan the dramatic destruction of roads, bridges and buildings when the AUTOBOTS least expect it.

    Enough repaints of the cellphone guy already!

    Hasbro's really milking these molds.

    Cool. The one repaint might make for an easier transition to Boom Box for those who are going to do that bash. Personally, repaints don't really bother me. I'm actually kinda curious as to what repaints we'll be seeing in the Animated line, as I haven't really been able to think of that man that they could do, lol.

    YAY! More Real Gears FTW, repaints or no! Thanks for granting my wish from a few days ago, Hasbro! (Though I'm not quite sure why you're so fond of the Speed Dial mold over the other ones... repaint High Score instead!)

    Might pick up Foton, as I like the mold, but Hacker's base mold isn't very good andd I already have one repaint of Speed Dial.

    I don't see how that's the case given that, of the three molds shown above, only one has been repainted previously. As for the others, one repaint per mold is pretty much standard nowadays, so I don't see how this is different from any other molds. That aside, Hasbro is fully justified in "milking" the molds in order to generate the profit margin necessary to justify making the molds in the first place.

    Holly Missed Opportunities, Bat-Hasbro! The Decepticon repaint of Spyshot should have been Reflector, if not Reflector-like in color scheme. I'm only feeling Hacker out of all of these, and 'lo and behold! It's a Real Gear Robot with a Movie-based sticker image for once!

    Now gimme a High Score painted like Beastbox!

    Hacker looks superior to his base figure. Foton looks great and the Camerabot shoulda been a con from the start. Wont be picking any of these up, though.

    The red phone looks slick. I never got that mold, so I might pick it up.

    Hacker shoulda been "1337 Hax0r 217". I'm interested in the picture on it, looks like Prime vs someone(Dropkick, Shockwave?)

    They misspelled Foton, on the picture, it's "Photon"

    Repaints of these molds have no power over me, one of each is plenty.

    Not a big draw for me, but Real Gears are tough to resist, even if they are repaints.

    I was starting to think the Real Gear line was dead. I will buy all three. Hopefully we will see some new molds and a repaint of High Score (black please).
