    It's all part of Hasbro's Machiavellian plot to preemptively take the freakish paint job choices away from those who make the knock-offs. They got the idea from Takara and the Henkei line's random chrome usage.

    Next stop: figuring out how to make the stuff FansProject or iGear might make before they make it. :D

    BB and Barricade's alt. modes actually aren't bad. I really like 'Cade's new Chinese Police deco.

    Bot mode on the other hand........Jeeeeeeeeheeeheeeeeesus.......

    Wow! BB and Barricade! Barricade does look like a taxi cab police car. Did these miss the deadline for Botcon?

    Hailstorm reminds me of the Hulk Crossovers figure. Very nice though.

    ....Guys, c'mon. Look at Bumblebee and Barricade again, how can you not love them?! They're G2 meets movie!!! It's so bad it's good!

    I have tons of Bumblebees, but there's no frigging way I'm passing on that 2-pack. That's just so hilariously awesome.

    Also, *pet peeve*:

    IT'S NOT HUNT FOR THE DECEPTICONS, IT'S AUTOBOT ALLIANCE. Hunt for the Decepticons is just a promotional thing. Autobot Alliance is what the Hasbro name tags called this line at Botcon.

    Hailstorm is very nice. The rest, Arcee/Elita aside, look like shit frankly.

    ^ Gosh, it's so crazy of us to use the only name that's on the package, as opposed to a little 12 point font label on displayed toys at a fan convention.

    No doubt you are technically correct; regardless, chillax.

    I've said it in the other thread about that Barricade figure, and I'll say it again here:

    I am SO NOT buying that Barricade figure. The colors are ugly. I don't care if it's a KO or if it's authentic, that is one Barricade figure that I will not buy. It's just not worthy of being a part of my growing Barricade collection.

    I weirdly LOVE THAT BARRICADE. However, why do all of BB's headmolds (Aside from the new Battle Blades one) have such terrifying eyes?

    Barricade's shin's reverse so he stands straighter, and his chest does almost close if you push the head up fully and close the halves underneath the neck mount area, and you get more movement in the arms if you rotate the front wheel pieces around completely to free his shoulders more.

    Because they never paint them right.

    They always paint the eyes blue and the pupils black. It should be gunmetal eyes and blue pupils.
