    Payload seems like an odd choice for that repaint. I suppose it kinda makes sense though.
    I guess the only reason it seemed odd to me is because that was the name used for that deluxe armored truck in the 2007 line. I wonder if they're going to do the same thing with Armorhide and make it the same character reformated.

    Oh noes, Seaspray has the dreaded "chicken legs" lmao Ooooh nooo...Man, people were just starting to get use to the idea that he was a Universe styled figure. lol Here we go agian.

    I still dig him though. I like the chicken legs. He looks like he uses the design well.

    Once again, Sea Spray is not officially Universe, any more than Bludgeon is.

    Both are part of the main line, simply "Transformers". This is a continuation of the movie lines to tide us through the interegnum period between movies.

    Man, I love that new packaging. It looks so much better than the stuff we've been getting.
    That sandy yellow is kind of classy looking.
    Seems too that the packaging is getting smaller.

    No more tiny voyagers swimming in empty space? I hope so.

    Sounds like everything is going under one line called Transformers, other than the Power Core Combiners (I think).

    Eh, I'm a sucker for repaints that are different characters from the original. I'll probably pick this up.

    Really digging the new packaging, too.

    Huh. I like the repaint, will probably buy if I have the cash.

    However, I thought he was in a two-pack with that god-awful Defender Prime voyager repaint?

    Payload looks neat, but I'm more interested in seeing better pics of Sea Spray.

    I think this "TRANSFORMERS" line is Universe successor,not a movie line continuation.TRANSFORMERS font is traditional not movie line design,and the Decepticons symbol is trandition too.
    So maybe repaints,WFC,PCC and new Classics conpect all in this TRANSFORMERS line,new cartoon series in TRANSFORMERS:blahblah line,and 2011 movie series in TRANSFORMERS:????? line.

    There's an RPMs version of yellow Long Haul (Desert Long Haul) who is in a two pack with a Defender-styled Optimus Prime. Could that be what you are thinking of?

    No, it's the movie line continuation. We've been told this. Hasbro are recognising that the movie franchise is the most popular and has the best sales, and it beefing it up to ensure that it remains the principle line. Right now the brand as a whole is pretty confusing, especially for kids. Having such varied lines as Animated, movie and Universe causes problems, so they're trying to take the most successful iteration of the brand - movieverse - and consolidating the other branches into this, with a few offshoots like WFC.
