    Excillion, CD Hot Shot, and Scrapmetal are must-buys for me.

    I just wish I wouldn't have to wait until at least April to start hoping I get lucky and find them. :-/

    And the eventual repaint could be Seaspray.

    Wow, I am loving these new waves...

    Excellion is looking awesome, he puts the GF version to shame. I hope they colored his fins yellow like they did on the LoC version, that's the only thing he needs to be perfect. Still love that they use the GF name for him, too.

    Repugnus is a pretty interesting choice for an Undermine repaint, definately an oddity. Very colorful, good change from the all-green Undermine.

    Shortround... geez, what a bad name, too bad it's attached to such a nice mold. How about Seaclamp? Take a Sea Minicon name, he looks like his name should be Stormcloud anyway, you dont always need to think up weird ass names Hasbro!

    The ones we've seen before, Scrapmetal, CD Hot Shot, Downshift, I'm loving them, especially Lugnutz...

    The only one that does nothing for me is Doubleclutch. They could have done a lot more with that mold, but they didn't seem to try and change the colors enough. Still a lot of red and white, doesn't do anything for me. If the original name we got at Botcon was Override GTS, I can see why since it just seems like a different version of Override

    Shortround? WTF?

    Coupled with his weird ass arms.

    These repaints are looking good. I wonder if down the road the hovercraft will be repainted into seaspray. If not, i'm sure some fans will.

    I think Hasbro will gain MANY cool points if Shortround's bio mentions him assisting Kicker's father after the Energon Battles.


    :D

    :lol  Took me a second though.

    Definitely loving Excillion, but then I'm the guy with the Hot Rod shelf. :p  Repugnus looks a lot like the color scheme I was thinking of for a custom, not sure if I'll do it now. Reasonably different, but same color pallete mostly. Not sure if I like shortround yet or not, but then all the jokes he's got going already might make him worth buying.

    Excellion looks great. Doubleclutch looks a lot better than what we saw yesterday, but that was probably more accurate.

    My mind may never be able to comprehend why Shortround isn't named Tidal Wave, Mirage or Dreadwing (or even reusing one of the sea team minicon names...) oy. or a BW crab name.. or Stanley.

    Repugnes? ok colours, but i think that mold is lame.

    Okay, Excellion looks good, definately better than Hotsot. That mold was always screaming for a Hot Rod-esque repaint

    Doubleclutch/Override looks a million times better than that pic we saw the other day where he/she was black and grey for some reason...

    Shortround is awesome! His colour scheme is absolutely beautiful! and he looks to be a great figure, I just wish he had a different name (Splashdown, Riptide, Seaclamp, Wavebreaker, Tidal Wave etc.)! the Hasbro exclusive basics rock!

    Repugnus is great! I'm glad they kept a similar colour scheme to the Universe one, and I'm glad to finally see a couple of Repugnuses around. It's such a cool name, I'm glad its being used on awesome toys!

    Hasbro is getting HUGE points with these upcoming toys!
