    whats the deal with them. i know theyre target exclusives and theyre repaints of cybertron and energon figures but whats their place in the movie story. i know the real gear are kind of the freaks created by the allspark and human experimenting but how do these other figures fit in. are the more creations of human tampering with the allspark? are they cybertronians investigating earth before the arrival of the four autobots? what are they?

    Aren't they the equivalent to the Star Wars expanded universe toys (i.e., no direct involvement/connection to the movie itself)?

    According to what bios I've seen, they are simply 'Bots and 'Cons undercover as Sector Seven vehicles. but the bios for these Target-exclusive toy don't fit established continuity particularly well.

    Yup, they're just extra repaints for Hasbro to cash in on. They definitely got my money, inspite of owning the molds already.

    I bought Hardtop (for the first time) due to the S7 paint scheme... but then again, I've got this thing for Sector Seven... (as in, "they should be stopped")... :D
