    If Hasbro released Premium ROTF characters .....


    SWEET ZOMBIE JESUS.

    But, no I'd boycott that line (okay, maybe Sideways, shut up.)

    Maybe, depends on if the Premium redecos are better than the originals.

    For sure, I would get a ROTF Premium Sideways, since I missed out on getting him the first time. But the others? Like I said, depends on if the redecos are worth getting.

    No. They've already released enough of the on-screen figures in slightly different paint schemes. Enough! We don't need *another* Bumblebee, Mudflap, or Ratchet clogging up the shelves. Their previous releases are already doing an exquisite job of that.

    Prime, Starscream, Sideswipe... yes.
    The others, no.... I've been really turned off by the ROTF line except for a few gems.

    Only if every figure had "tuner" added to their name.

    :lol  I would definitely buy a "Premium" Starscream, Devastator and (big) maybe Optimus Prime. I'm just not interested in any of the other characters enough to drop more money on them.

    Depends, are there remolds like in the first movie line? If its a toy I dont have, then it might tempt me to get it, like HA bumblebee, HA skids/mudflap, or fallen.

    No. I wouldn't buy them. They promised us it wouldn't happen with ROTF due to all of the shit they got in with the first ones. What we're getting now ARE the premium decos.

    I know starscream and Prime aren't cheap, but they pretty much had/are getting the premium treatment from Takara.

    Sideways and Sideswipe were both pretty close to premium as they were initially sold. I honestly thought when they were released that maybe hasbro was just going to do the regular line the same way they did premiums. Sadly it became quickly clear that wasn't the case.

    I wish takara had treated the human alliance line the way they did the BT's. (although I am very curious to see exactly what they do with their movie MP line)

    Only two such things I'd buy would be a premium voyager Megatron (admit it; you all wish he'd come in silver/grey/black instead of that funny green color to begin with) and a premium edition Fallen (the hell was with the green there?)

    Premium edition Prime? I believe that exists and has the word "Buster" in front of its name.

    Yes on the Voyager Megs; I'm still waiting to see if/when the Takara Unite for the Universe version gets released.

    Bigger yes on The Fallen; ditch the green.

    Other than those two, and an Elita One that's actually screen accurate in color (the mold issue is another much-discussed topic)...meh.
