    Dum, dum, dum!!! :eek:  Transformers in re-paint shocker!!! Someone better call Diaclone!

    Seriously, what do you expect for a filler line before the next movie comes about and the toys for TFPrime start being produced?

    I personally think the amount, and quality of new molds we're getting is incredible, and the fact that the Generations line has been designed with repaints in mind means that I can wait and see what the repaints are before I make a decision which version of that mold I want. And some of these battle packs that are being released are seriously tempting my 'Only one version of each mold' rule that I've only broken on a few notably occasions such as Classics Prime & Magnus, Swipe and Streak (Although with the duel transformation that doesn't really count) and of course Superion and Bruticus.

    Soundwave and Dirge will be bought on sight!

    Since now all 3 Coneheads have the Classics treatment and a wide release, will we finally see a non-Botcon Thundercracker?

    Pass on everything but Terradive and Highbrow. With all these tanks, I wish they'd finally paint one burgundy (or not) and name it "Warpath."

    A sniper rifle for Blurr?

    Dunno, but I always though snipers were calm and precise..and Blurr is anything but calm.

    It's supposed to be a nod to Armada Blurr, who was a sniper.

    I think of it this way....Blurr would technically be the ultimate sniper. Runs in, takes the shot, runs out, long gone before the body hits the ground without anyone knowing it was him. :D

    Thanks for the update!

    I pick and choose based on an articulate cool looking bot.

    And if the colors match up to the personality, I just might buy one...

    Firetrap is growing on me. He has a G1 Brawn paintjob. I'm not sure if I like him as an Autobot, though. That mold looks pretty mean...

    Blurr is a pass. My Drift was a disappointment. The mold has some serious shoulder and hip kibble issues. And I'd even like the spoilers to be reversed to allow the legs more clearance, too. Good effort. But not perfect...

    Pass on Axor. My Lockdown is good enough for me. But another good effort from Hasbro. Colors are pretty craptastic, though...

    Ratchet is a neat homage to G1. But to kibblerific for my tastes...

    Where's Big Daddy?

    And are we getting any more HA repaints? I'd like a Decepticon. Maybee Jazz repainted into Dead End or Wildrider?

    I'll buy a Tommahawk and a Terradive.

    Wonder if they'll repaint Terradive for movie 3...

    While repaints are occasionally acceptable, this is NOT one of those times. Blurr is certainly a character that deserves his own mold. The Drift mold is cool and everything, but it's not Blurr.

    That said, the WFC figures are bought on sight, as is Tomahawk, and Elita-One, just for the sake of collecion completion (ugly as hell). And while yes, the alt mode for Terradive is pretty sweet, I personally find that robot mode to be horrible. It's freakin' hideous. Definitely a pass for me.

    the legends Devvy repaint looks Shi* in robot mode cuz theres even less paint apps than before! But the Car modes look cool cuz of all the dirt paint apps and stuff.
    The New Fallen looks awsome. Hopefully the Joints wont popp off . Loving his new hands, and he comes with the staff! The Legends 5 pack is nothing special, what people would maintly buy it for is probably the Fallens new Paint sceam. Megatron looks awsome aswell.
    that Ravage pack looks cool. The apropriate figures have been added to the set.

    I'm finding it tremendously amusing that Steel Shot is totally mistransformed backward in his Alt mode pic.

    These are official? Daaaaamn. We have better photogs on TFW!
