This.
megatronkicksas
Might get insecticons
Powersa
Insecticons yes!

I don't know about Powerglide. I have the black purple one which looks better imo.
Trailbreaker77
Getting both, but what am I going to do with 3 Powerglides? Apply for adult entertainment??
BigRC83
Those Insecticons are mine.
Recall
If those Insecticons make it to the UK someone has to let me know, so very much want.
$shockwave$
those insecticons shall go to my bosum (chest) for hugs and money

For the mainline Universe figures, retailers wanted "realistic" colors. For exclusive figures, Hasbro goes to the retailers with the decos and tries to "sell" them on the concepts. At least that's what I've gathered...

Sucks that two out of three Insecticons can't keep their names. Not that it matters... Just ask Octane.

Anywho, for anyone who already has the first issue of Powerglide, all is not wasted. Just get this on reprolabels. http://www.reprolabels.com/Classics/...pchothouse.jpg That's what I'm doing.

I didn't know that, so what names have they got?

Edit: i can make out Sharpshot/Sharpsnot from the picture
StarSaber79
Hardshell, Kickback, and Sharpshot. Interesting names.
justamaze
Getting both of these and maybe even 4 insecticons so they can cover most of my shelf space.

Huh, I didn't noticed the names were changed.

I'll be getting Powerglide (I have the Japanese & USA versions), but not the Insecticons (I have the Japanese reissue which this is the same as).

Powerglide to me is the most boring release of this mold, as (if it looks like it did at Botcon) I don't like the color layout. It's too plain or something.

*Faints!*

& I don't think that Powerglide looks as good as the TakaTom version.
Satomiblood
Might pick up the red Powerglide. I've always been interested in the expensive Japanese version. I'm glad that I'll eventually be able to get one for half the price here in the states.

I still like the original from last year. But I might use him for custom parts.
Shockscream
Definitely want the Insecticons. One of the UK online stores are bound to get them. Kapow and Toyz and Gamez, I mean you!

I know I hate when they have to rename things. I will still call them Bombshell and Shrapnel.

Chris
Well now I know I wasn't the only one who had this idea...
Stormcrow
Awesome. I'm all over both of these. Will buy the second I find 'em.

I didn't buy the first Powerglide because I didn't like the paint scheme. This version excites me.

Insecticons...delicious G1 goodness. I've always loved these guys. Great designs. I can't wait.
Toa Maximus
Does anyone know how much the insecticons will cost?

Its likely that the backlash for them releasing the "wrong" color scheme took them by complete surprise.
maut1234
both powerglide and the insectons are a must have.
MidnightBliss
So, when can I expect the Insecticons to join the ranks of my 'Cons?

You know what the great thing about this is? It doesn't matter... once you buy them, you can call them whatever the hell you want!
ILoveDinobot
omg insecticons, squuuuuuueeeeeee!!!!!!! they look so cool.
oxidative
Insecticons: Yes please!
Scaleface
It's like some horrible Cybertronian witness protection program run by Sentinel Prime.

"All right, hold it down. Now that you have all turned state informant, you get new names and new identities so no one will recognize you, I put a lot of though into this.... Bluestreak will be called Silverstreak, Bombshell is Hardshell, Shrapnel is Sharpshot, Hot Rod is Rodimus, Skyjack is Skyfall, and Slag will be Snarl... what do you mean? Snarl is a good name... Yes we can have 2 Dinobots named Snarl! Don't talk back to me pointy!"

Wow i just noticed that, really how are they going to go and change their names like that BOOOOO

Was at BotCon09 and picked up Henkei Powerglide for $50. He really should've been red from the first release. Comon, when someone says "Powerglide", you immediately say, "the red plane", right?
sunstreaker116
see i knew theyed do it thats why i didnt buy the other one now ill buy this.
IronhidePrime
Now I don't regret not buying the first Powerglide
Solrac333
Powerglide YESSSSS. What he should have been the first time. Insecticons, maybe. I never had them as a kid. How much will they be?
Scaleface
I picked up the white Powerglide for $20, and the red Henkei for $40, and then the Black redeco for $20. I think I have enough unless they repaint him as Jhiaxus.

Yay, Powerglide!!! So glad i never popped for the Henkei, i actually like this version more...

Those Hothouse stickers for Classics Powerglide are actually pretty nice (and i usually find reprolabels "upgrade" type sets pretty cheesy)

I know that was Hasbro's "line" but there was nothing realistic about the first Powerglide (or his redeco )

Hasbro to you:

You've NO IDEA what you're wishing for!

The Insecticons are lookin' good.

I might get them.
Optimus1986
Powerglide is a done deal.

The Insecticons? Meh. Think I'll pass.

Mister Gone
Oh hellz yes, both want!

I wonder if Canadian Wal-Marts will actual get Powerglide. I'm still waiting for mine to get the ROTF Skywarp and Ramjet. I hate Canadian Wal-Mart distribution...
saberconvoy
did not see the repaint coming

Hell yeah! Its like the Tankor/Octane thing!
Incepticon
I like the fact that this version of Powerglide is red & light gray - closer to the original color scheme and less monotone than Takara's version - but the yellow button and blue 'boobs' look really out of place. Still, I'll definitely pick it up since I returned the original version (never opened, so don't worry) because of the all-white look.

I've been wanting the Insecticons for years, so this reissue set is VERY welcomed. Interesting about the name changes, but just as with Tankor, they'll be called their original names once they're on display. It gives me hope about still getting a Universe version of Trailbreaker one day even despite them not allowed to use that name anymore. They could call him Susan on the packaging for all I care
Solrac333
It would be cool to see both Henkei and Red Powerglide side by side. So if anyone has a change to own both versions, pictures would be awesome.
trystendaycey
Last I heard the Insecticons come out in September for a retail or 34.99.
