    I hope they do DEFENSOR as well. That'd be so cool. :drool:

    i kinda like Wildrider and Dead End, but man, Motormaster is just too much, even by G2 standards.

    Also, I hope they awaken RUINATION from Bruticus. That'd be the bee's knees.

    Paint/colors looks nicer than I was expecting.

    These pics seal it for me. Love the colours, love the paint apps and the gloss of these dudes. They can stay single and I'll display my UW Menasor combined.

    I always wondered if the paint schemes for G2 where done tongue in cheek, because nothing screams "Robots in disguise" like Day-Glo colors.

    ...god G2 paint schemes are ugly

    A couple good toys came out of G2, like Megatron and Laser Optimus Prime, but the paint jobs were always hideous. Seriously, you point me to a G2 paint scheme that improves on G1, or hell, just point me to a good one, and I'll point you to a CHUG figure that deserves a repaint

    Man, those are shiny! I'm loving that Drag Strip, though.

    I'm not alone! :D

    i'd dig the crap out Baldigus (the Japan version), complete with the awesome upside down G2 Autobot emblems: i always preferred that color scheme (which was more unique then the RiD'01 version with the grey chest)

    Gah!
    Some of these are even more garish than Victorian.

    Yup I need to get this set.

    I have no attachment to G2 but the decos look fun and memorable. I might just repurpose them as new characters.

    I approve of these but I don't think I'll buy them. I think I've missed release dates for these, if they've been given yet.

    That's what people either disagree on or outright like. There's just something about the total audacity of it.

    The only g2 paint scheme that I really like is skydive. I don't think it improves on the g1 version, but the silver and blue really goes well together IMO:)

    Leaving aside that not all G2 paint schemes have that characteristic "hideous"-ness, there are quite a lot of fans of G2 Sideswipe's simple reversal from the G1 scheme. G2 Jazz and Inferno only differ slightly from the G1 schemes.

    And even that's not counting G2 toys that didn't use G1 molds....

    Eh...Victorion suffers from being a wall of two colors that our eyes can't resolve. It's the same headache you feel after reading a 3D comic with those red/blue glasses -- except it hits you right away!

    G2 Menosar just looks like a rainbow wants to kick your ass.

    The paints apps are beautiful! I wasn't interested in this set, but now I am. Just really great looking.
