    But no crazy repaints, but repaints like the Starscream figure we are getting on November or December, I still need Bumblebee, hot Rod and Mirage.

    Again, possible, but I wouldn't hold my breath for it if I were you. They've got a lot of ground to cover besides just the 'Generation One Series'. Also, if you still need a BB... pick up the Wal-Mart 'Evolutions of Bumblebee' gift set and you've got a really nice looking Classics BB (if you already have or don't want the Animated and Movie ones in the set just resell them on the boards or something...).

    Probably doesn't want to pay the import fees/price hike from online retailers.

    Laser Optimus is right, the cheapest Ive seen them is at 22 each, making it almost 70 for just 3 figures.

    In all honesty, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw all of the old non-exclusive Classics re-released/slightly repainted in the new Universe line.

    I know the Jetfire, O.P., Megatron, Mirage, Grimlock, BB, and not-conehead Seeker molds are all getting repainted, along with all 12 of the mini-cons in the K-mart set, but that's about it right now. Come to think of it, doesn't that make the only not repainted 2006 classics figure Ramjet's mold?

    Hasbro also hasn't repainted Astrotrain, Hot Rod, or Voyager Megatron yet.

    True, but unless we get that Wildrider repaint stateside, I highly doubt we'll be getting those three, especialy megs after the increase in gun toy laws.
