    One of these days, hopefully someone's going to post a picture of that Arcee figure transformed correctly, to provide a better idea of what it's actually supposed to look like in robot mode. Not sure how much that'll help, granted.

    Nightbeat's a definite pass, as I'm not fond of that colour scheme, but I'm glad they're keeping the name in circulation. Stockade is a mold I like, but I don't have the money for repaints any more.

    Cool, but pass on the repaints. This line's going to be expensive enough for me as it is.

    Gears!! That's awesome. Glad to see some traditional '84 homages again! The tampographs are a hint as well.

    Look at all that color packed inside! I almost wonder if their going to paint his allspark chest crest yellow like g1 gears.

    Nightbeat is ok. The master detective is no longer a real gear. Much closer to the intended homage this time hasbro.

    It will get me to buy the mold again however painful ($8.99 for scouts :( )

    Arcee is looking ok. I've heard the cycles are much larger than you expect in person.

    I'm thinking the Stockade repaint will be called Gears as well, although I don't know what's drawing me to that conclusion.:lol

    I was thinking Wheeljack for the Stockade repaint, only because his head looks pretty similar to the G1 character.

    Not sure if Nightbeat colors really work for that mold. Just seem a bit off somehow.

    I'm also not really digging "Gears" deco either.
    I agree with something I believe Omegaus said, which was that they should use that mold for a RID X-Brawn repaint. That would look better. imo

    Aw man! So close to the X-Brawn repaint I wanted for Stockade, if only it was green instead of blue...

    Urgh!

    All those clashing colours of silver, baby blue, translucent purple, red etc... Maybe they should name it Thunderclash? :lol

    Stockade repaint is tempting...for a simple mold I really liked it.

    The more pictures I see of Arcee the more I'm leaning towards skipping it.

    Nightbeat='Meh'. Probably passing on most of the repaints from the line unless I really really like them a lot.

    His head is actually really close to the Gears toy, too. With the visors and all. Should be a solid homage.

    Figured from the pics we got from Botcon Dealer room that the Detour repaint would be Nightbeat.

    That Stockade "Gears" repaint is really not doing anything for me at all.
