    I really hope those aren't the final colors on BW Megatron.

    Looks like our first look at the packaging design for Classics 2.0/Universe. Couldn't care less for these things, though.

    Nice to see they're continuing the RH line, not that I plan to buy any every but they sell very well.

    Cool. It's nice to get a glimpse of what the Universe line's packaging will look like. I might get a couple of these. The Sunstreaker vs Galvatron and Hound vs Blitzwing sets are the two out of those that interest me.

    RH has some of the weirdest combos. Did Sunstreaker EVER face Galvatron?

    Why would they put this under the Universe line? Why not just make the Robot Heroes their own line, like the other Hero figures(Star Wars, Marvel, etc.)?

    Anyways, I want the G1 Heroes!

    Hasbro really scored with their invention of the Heroes line of products - I think they have such great design and play value for kids, and are excellent to collect for us older folks. This new series doesn't disappoint, and in spite of my early attempts to avoid RH (didn't work, have the full set so far...) I'm sure I'll be sucked into these too!

    Probably for the same reasons that other sub-lines mirror packaging from the main lines. Hasbro is concerned about an overall shelf aesthetic, and to have these guys (which are "classic" type toys) next to the Classics 2.0 line accomplishes that. Another example would be the Alternators line, whose packaging always mirrored the current mainline at the time.

    Nice. I'm glad they keep the G1 together and not mixed with BW. I do like BW, but I only want thw G1 guys of these.

    I was glad to see that we were getting Hound. He fits in with the previous Wal-mart exclusive G1 set better than a clear Mirage. I liked the whole "MTMTE: Hologram Rocket base" nood to G1 cartoon fans.

    I think we will see Unicron and some of the combiners at Toy Fair this year. Hasbro has already stated that these "Heroes" lines are performing well for them across different platforms and larger characters that enhance the play value are a logical step for the TFs line.

    It would be great to see the cross-sell on the back of the cards as well, a few more detailed shots of the character artwork. The BA art looks a little manly from the picture angle.
