    New Transformers Toys Revealed In Upcoming Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong

    Apologies if this is old news, I scanned the front page but could see nothing relating to it.

    So we now know where that ugly Barricade repaint is going. Sideswipe and Sideways look barely repainted. And then there's a previously unseen Decepticon repaint of Blazemaster/Evac named Tail Whip.

    Wow, this makes me happy I skipped on the demolisher 3 pack with the twins. But It also makes me hate that I have to buy a crazy taxi barricade to get a new sideswipe. T.T

    That Arcee looks fairly like Takara's Elita 1 (?)

    Sideswipe looks cool, but I have to buy that ugly-as-sin Barricade to get it?

    All terrible, but atleast those of us in the Americas can choose between Hasbro's Elita-1 and Takara's Elita-1 paint schemes.

    Oooo, I like the Twins/Sideways pack, the deco on the Ice Cream twins looks awesome, much better than in the pack with Demolishor, and it'll give me a spare Sideways to butcher.

    Yeah, all three are a pass for me. I appreciate a new character with Tailwind, but hell, why not swap a new head mold for barricade and make Prowl or homage to Micromaster Stakeout or something?

    For some reason, the Barricade REALLY appeals to me. Perhaps he causes me to hallucinate when I look at him. Who's to say?

    barf. lol.

    so that yucky barricade is with another sideswipe. and the twins with sideways which makes sense but sideways doesnt look all that different. and why they would pack another pack with sideways is beyond me since he will be with all three legends bike sisters.

    the arcee looks to be a lot like the japanese version. maybe those first pics we have always seen have been of the hasbro version? tailwhip interests me.

    Holy crap. How can Hasbro put these on store shelves thinking they'd sell?

    Hunters Rumble is the only one that I have to grab. Because those two molds
    are cool car deluxe varients.

    Sideswipe Tries out the Allspark Blue.

    Will probably get the others as well. Those Ice Cream Twins look even more Awesomely corroded than the Toys R US version. (Just a note that the TRU demolishor pack had a nice decal sheet for the twins for most of the Autobot snowcone and Optimus Pop details you would want.)

    I may get the Arcee/Tail Whip pack if I can't obtain either of those molds. Hell, I may get it even if I already have normal Arcee, then I can call Pinkcee "Elita-1" and hope that combination will still be possible.

    Bollocks to the other two, though.

    Is that a British Police car deco on Barricade? That's outstanding! If I were into the movie aesthetic, I'd be all over it.

    The only multipack I want is the Sideways (don't own the mold) vs the Legends bike sisters (Legends collector)

    That ICT looks awesome. Everything else looks pretty boring. Except Barricade--not sure what the deal is there.

    The Arcee/Helicopter Guy pack is 2 of the worst molds ever in one box, that's a huge pass. The Sideswipe/Barricade pack is 2 decent molds in awful colors, pass. Sideways/Twins... well, I don't care about Sideways, but at least his colors didn't go to shit. And I do like the Ice Cream Truck, it seems this one's going for the "beat up look" of the film. Not bad.
