    ...holy shit.

    Now I gotta figure out what I wanna repaint my extra Grimlock that I repainted into the customizing class Botcon 07 Overkill though.

    EDIT: And just cuz the Collectors' Club logo is on it doesn't mean it's for the club. Every TF package nowadays has that, in order to promote it.

    That Megs repaint is badass. The prime is ok. Definitly brighter than the initial release. But, wait Dragstrip + Overkill? Sweet!

    Can't wait to see 3 and 4... easy pass on the first two, thought the megs repaint is pretty nice.

    As far as I know all my Animated figs so far have it. It's for advertisement is it not?

    Wow - They look fantastic.

    I love the Masterpiece-like packaging. The question is, where and when can I get some of these?

    Man, if I was a MISB collector, I'd be drooling right now. Those are some awesome boxes.

    And Dragstrip and Overkill? Sweet.

    Nice packaging. Shame the Prime and Megs aren't very good figures in the first place though.

    That Prime is actually one of the most articulated primes ever, it's just his vehicle mode that's fail.

    The Megs is nice too, I just don't like his cannon/claw/stump thing his got on his right arm. Putting a hand there would have been cool and I have seen it done in a few customs.

    Man where did these guys come from?

    Huh, turns out they were the deluxe Prime / Megs. That makes sense.

    That is also some damn fine packaging.

    Isn't that North American packaging?
    I wonder if they'll be store exclusives.

    VERY nice packaging. Shame the toys inside are a little meek, though the new colours on Megatron make him a little tempting as a Megaplex sort of deal.

    Looking forward to seeing where this goes. :D

    The Megatron looks nice, would be great if he had two hands though. No amount of nice paint can fix that lame spinning-cannon-and-calling-it-a-blade "feature."

    If only they gave us a G2 hero Megatron repaint like that, I'd be all :drool: 

    Dragstrip and Overkill seem like they'd be good repaints though.

    Wait, they're making a mass release version of Botcon 2007 toy?

    That combined with the pretty packaging is all very unhasbro like.

    I don't think that counts really - besides, it wasn't fully repainted from Grimlock - I seem to remember pics of him mostly being grey like Grimlock. This Overkill will most likely be mainly white.
