    Calling it "Dark..." is an easy excuse for a repaint? I don't know.

    Easy excuse to repaint Scorpy.

    Crumplezone and Leobreaker both appear in the show (aside from being an easy excuse for a repaint).

    I thought dark implied that they were/had been dead and were brought back and least partially.

    Scorpy - its an excuse for a remold.

    Pretty much the same deal with dark crumplezone ... the only redeeming factor is that he appears in the show and there's a reason for it.

    Nemesis Breaker - easy way to distinguish an evil character from a good guy character that look identical. In this case its Leo breaker. Other than that its the same deal as Dark Scorpy and Crumplezone.

    Also Dark repaints have shown to be quite successful in terms of sales that's why they are doing it still. From G1, BW II and Neo when we got Black Lio Convoy, Black Big Convoy and Nucleon Quest PM Prime we've had black repaints of a TF toy in almost every line. Personally I love all the dark/black repaints and I plan to get all of them eventually.

    When you're a Decepticon you're evil. But if you're a DARK Decepticon, then you're EXTRA evil. :thumbs2:

    Dark Crumplezone is not just a "repint". He's an extensive remold.

    Is it just me or are people here having a go at Hasbro for these 'Dark' toys?


    People don't usually have a problem with Takara's various 'Black (insert name)' repaints.

    That's because they think Hasbro is evil and eats children.

    So, Takara must be some Japanese version of Glenda the Good Witch from Wizard of Oz to these guys...

    Personally, I think it's an easy excuse for a repaint and not to different from when they do the "Powerlinx" or "Energon" repaints.

    Who exactly are "these guys"? I certainly hope I'm not included in that statement.
