I saw a pick for Hunt for Decepticons Elita but all it was was a Chromia repaint.
That IS the ROTF Elita-1. It is very disappointing.
Good luck with the combination...lmao!
Sad day that hasbro decided to give us the stiff finger.
URRRG! I had a feeling they'd do that!
SCREW YOU HASBRO!
Pretty sure Hasbro has said Elita-1 is a remold. Unfortunately, they've never elaborated on how she's remolded. But they've said combination instructions will be made available online.
If there's any remolding, it's just that they added the combined form's head somewhere.
Even with Elita being a Chromia re-paint for the most part, I'm still pretty interested on the gestalt form. I'm picturing a large awkward mess. No wait, thats Devastator. I'm sure the 3 bike menage will be alot better.
No it wont.
Yes, screw you, Hasbro.
Screw Hasbro that gave us Animated, gave us the movie lines in the first place, has created excellent toys and continues to do so, has given fans countless homages and revamped figures made exclusively with fans in mind, that has been producing Transformers figures and licensing media for over 25 years.
lulz, but seriously, you're really mad over this? Yeah, considering Chromia is the coolest of the three, I'd buy a new-mould of her, but what's the big deal?
"The stiff finger?" REALLY? Really now? You think that they made this choice for a repaint with the deliberate intent of insulting you and not because of any logical reason such as cost or poor chances of such a low-ball character doing well on the shelves, or any other perfectly legitimate reason?
Ha! Ahahah! Oh haha! That was SO funny AND true! No wait, it wasn't and it wasn't.
I'll never understand why everyone is so butthurt over a character that wasn't even in the movie for 2 minutes being a repaint. Hey Hasbro could have just not released it at all, right?
The amount of fanboy butt-hurt in these answers makes my heart happy
As for your answer to me...lmao
I imagine that a remoulded/retooled/redesigned/original mold elita-1 figure would have done every bit as well on the shelves as a repaint of an excisting toy.
This was nothing more than Hasbro moving on.
I'm not mad they moved on...only wish that they had not done so before trying to make a good combination.
Would have actually been better if hasbro had not said We are going to make them combine.
They should have said we are going to do 2 molds and a repaint.
I just wish that they'd chosen to repaint the Arcee mold instead of the Chromia mold, since Arcee's design was a bit closer to Elita One's than Chromia.
all the bike sisters are ugly as fuck and look like a mis mashed pile of crap anyway when combined...no big loss.
