    Its about time that either Target or Walmart has gotten the new TF lines in. That Thrust looks like an odd Skywarp re-paint. Cool either way.

    Sweet. Did you buy it? If so, may we have a pic or two?

    If it is the same (or close), I'll probably bite. (Even if I have to suffer through the Blazemaster mold again.) That pack will likely be a good deal cheaper than the Takomy Elita, especially after shipping.

    Barricade is the Interrogator mold in a Chinese police deco.

    Don't make me pull out the giant font.

    Not sure which sets I'd actually pick up myself. I don't have any of these, other than the Twins. Since I'm not fussed about the biker chicks, I can thankfully skip Arcee/Tailwhip easily. Maybe, despite the heaping amount of wtf on Barricade, I'd actually get him and Sideswipe. Bumblebee and Thrust could prove decent too.

    Yay...more repaints I won't get. Thank you Hasbro. Though this is definitely good for those of you who want them and all.

    GOD, I do not want another Bumblebee just to get the Apeface inspired Thrust. It would not be so bad if it was the new Battle Blade Bee but it is the average ROTF preview figure. :(  color me disappointed.

    I like to rename repaints so they can be new characters if they are not already. So can you guys start throwing out renames.
    Thrust--> Apeface
    Arcee--> Elita-1, Flareup
    Sideswipe--> Bluestreak
    Barricade, BB (?)

    Bumper is good but not Prowl. What would be a good name for another 'Con police car?

    Clampdown? Stakeout? Flatfoot? (All 'Bots before, I know. But I think they'd work for a 'Con.)

    Graftron? Extorticon?

    When has Movieverse Sideswipe ever been blue before?

    I still haven't seen a good enough picture to tell. Looks white and purple to me in the small in-package pic.

    I definitely want the Sideswipe/Barricade set since I like both characters enough to buy repaints, and they look different enough. The Bumblebee one is iffy. I'm passing on the other two sets.

    I don't know if this helps...I was at my Target last night and while they didn't have the 2-packs out yet they were setting up the end cap and had a video playing showcasing upcoming products so I took a pic with my cellphone.


    edit: wow that was fast:
