    FARSIGHT T-20
    FARSIGHT T-20 is a scientist and analyst who is used to examining both sides of any problem with which he is presented. His keen intelligence and highly logical mind can break down any issue to its most important few points and reach a conclusion within a few moments. He joined the AUTOBOTS not because of an ethical compulsion, but because his analysis put them squarely in the right. Many DECEPTICON strategists have tried to out think FARSIGHT T-20, but all have failed.

    MIDNIGHTER XR-4
    Paranoid and frantic, MIDNIGHTER XR-4 is terrified of being late or missing a scheduled deadline. The problem is that, because he's so preoccupied worrying about it, he never actually manages to be on time for anything. When he sets a bomb to go off, you can bet it will detonate fifteen minutes late. If he's planning an attack at dawn, chances are nothing will happen until after breakfast. Other DECEPTICONS hate working with him, because no mission goes off well with him in charge.

    TWITCHER F451
    TWITCHER F451 is a psychological profiler, specializing in anything that makes the AUTOBOTS uncomfortable, angry, or afraid. With only a few minutes of observation, he can draw highly specific conclusions about almost any target's greatest mental weaknesses, and come up with a way to exploit them. He takes a great deal of pleasure in making other robots uncomfortable, so even other DECEPTICONS tend to avoid him.

    Hasbro's just so awesome sometimes. Well, okay, all the time.

    While I really don't like the binoculars mold, I will get these just because I highly doubt Hasbro will make new molds for these.

    I'm getting them all, just because I'm trying to be a completionist with this line.

    Cool. I'm not exactly sure why, but, Farsight T-20 is what I would imagine an Autobot version of Shockwave to be like. While interesting, I probably won't get any more Real Gears. I'm currently happy with the three that I have.

    Love the colors on Farsight and Midnighter, Twitcher fails. Passing on all three regardless.

    Nice colors, but I have all three of these molds already. Don't need them again. Pass.

    Somebody grab that controller and give us a custom of the Master Chief! It already looks halfway there...

    I like these 6 recent repaints more than the past ones, except for that red cellphone. 5 out of the recent 6 shown are all "maybes" for me, but I'm not promising anything just yet, Hasbro. Though that repainted hand-held is quite nice.

    If the cellphone already has a 3rd color repaint, then give us a 3rd Controller repaint in Cassetteticon Beastbox colors to go with NightBeat (already viewed as a dead ringer for Squawktalk) and it's a done deal. Also, making the 3rd repaint of the digital camera in Reflector colors works well too. I'd buy that.

    I honestly would not mind there being three versions of each figure, just as long as one or two of those three versions pays homage in color-scheme to a Generation One character that they resemble, be it in robot or device mode.

    We already have the MP3 most likely paying homage to two well known classic Transformers characters (Laserbeak & Squawktalk) and I guess you could argue that other figures share similar qualities with past Microman and Diaclone device robots.

    However, color-schemes that also point to well known characters (such as: TWITCHER F451 -> Master Chief), and if they are intentional or not, is a great idea as well.

    well the first two do look better than the originals (who puked on the video game controller...outside of X-box nostalga that is totally undesirable) but these reek of 'what's the point'.
    When they go 2 for 1/half price I might get at least the longview repaint and stick it away for future years.

    Sold, sold...and sold.
    So Farsight's like a really tiny Autobot Shockwave?
    And Midnighter is just the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland reincarnate...

    You know, I didn't like the color on Farsight at first, but now that I see him transformed, he really looks great. Twitcher is really growing on me too.

    the more i see them the more i like them. Only one I bought was Meantime....

    I think I might pick up a bunch more now. I really don't like the paint apps though.

    All these recolors... and no Buzzsaw-colored Booster X-10. Makes me wonder if the Club didn't snag up the rights to sell THAT one, knowing it'd be a popular color scheme for the toy.

    Initially I didn't like the colors on Farsight, but looking at the bot mode I've changed my mind. Also loving the colors on Twitcher.

    Midnighter OTOH looks too plain ... I'll buy it regardless.

    And the bios are great ... except for the mention of breakfast.

    Seconded.

    I am just buying cons on this line, can we get a Con pair of binoculars please. Howabout the name Night-vision, and give him red or green tinted lenses.
