    Hopefully we'll get images of those Classics soon . Will be interesting to see how this bump will effect how Takara/Tomy changes the paint on the Classics. Though if anything it will most likely mean they will be just repackaged Hasbro versions I would think as they were originally slated for like March or something.

    Indeed... that's what my import store tells me. They've not mentioned anything about this earlier release.

    I'm personally hoping this is kind of an error, even though I also received notice from suppliers that these would be released on the 11th of December. I mean, we have no pics of the final packages or colors for classics, and people are waiting on those to decide whether to order. That makes it hard for me to know if I need more or less of each one than I already asked for. Not a fun situation...

    Hold up....are these Classics repaints of what has already been released...or the new Classics 2.0?

    Silly question i know, but i missed the memo of Japanese Classic repaints.

    From what we know, they're just the Classics 1.0 figures with "Anime accurate" paintjobs, not really "repaints".

    Yeah, this sort of irked me a bit. I've had all those on pre-order thinking I'd have the money to cover in February, but no chance I'll have the money for it late December. Oh well, hopefully they'll stick around a while.

    Hopefully we'll see pics soon so I can decide if I'm keeping my preorder for Megs or not.

    Hrmmm... might be interested in ordering them if I could see some pics soon. I'm curious how the Starscream and Megs will look.

    I'm definitely not getting those Classics repaints since I'm very happy with the ones I currently have, but I am still interested on how the paint jobs will differ from the Hasbro versions.

    I'm *really* hoping some pics surface before BBTS gets their stock and starts processing pre-orders. I guess the one saving grace is that no matter what Takara do with Megatron, it will undoubtedly look better than Hasbro's version since things can't get much worse that green, purple & orange. But it would still be nice to know in advance.

    Starscream is the only one that I'm really on the fence about. I'm more than fine with the Hasbro version, but would still like to see what Takara did to change it just in case it ends up being better.

    Hopefully some pics will show up in the next week.

    My exact thoughts. We need to see something really soon otherwise I think there is no repaint job.

    That is quite a jump in time! They were supposed to be out in what March? I too wish there were pics right now but no matter what I think the repainted Megatron is a pretty safe bet. Especially if they get rid of the orange.
