    Bumble and Barricade are hideous, just embarrassing. :lol 

    Arcee looks pretty, but I don't think the mold is worth buying a repaint.

    By the way, who's in charge of weathering effects at Hasbro now?

    Stupid question, I know, but the recent efforts in that department have been pretty poor.

    I think that color for Bumblebee looks better on the Classics mold

    That post probably came out "louder" than I intended-- the big font was to get people's attention, not so much that I was "yelling in anger" at everyone who called it HftD.

    But I think if people continue to call the subline "Hunt for the Decepticons" things will get confusing, particularly if, when the promotion ends when the calendar turns to 2011, there's another, differently-named promotion for the toys, but with the same packaging.

    Hailstorm looks absolutely awesome. Don't really like that the missiles stick so far out of the back, though.

    These photo's definitely keep Hailstorm on the maybe list, I'll wait till peaugh or someone does a video review for me to decide, the rest I am unconcerned about.

    And yeah at least the Barricade has to be a KO, it's hideous.

    Unlike some other people, I'm going to get that Barricade because I am a true Barricade fan.

    Holy sh... that Bumblebee looks terrible. :( 

    And aside from the Chinese, Barricade looks peculiarly... British.

    That Chinese police deco isn't even close to accurate.

    This is what an authentic Chinese police deco would look like on a Transformer:

    That Barricade and Bumblebee set does LOOK like KO, but generally KOs don't bother with the tampo'ed faction sigils.

    Hmm... on second thought, I could buy that Barricade figure, but have him painted so that he looks more like this color scheme:

    I guess I am in the minority, but I really don't like that Hailstorm figure. It's arms are too long and it looks too fat, but hey, like I said, I seem to be in the minority, so good that everyone else is getting a figure they like.
