    I am glad their leftover stock of Allspark Blue is being used on figures I don't care about.

    Highbrow might be purchased multiple times so I can simulate WWII in the TF room. Gotta find a WWII style bomber fig to complete the illusion. (Animated Lugnut doesn't quite cut it)

    I'll have a hard time not eating Sunspot. He looks delicious.

    Wow, these are all terrible. Seriously. And I'm not even that picky generally, but I can't find a single one in this lineup that I like. What is up with that Sunspot repaint? It's like they thought the original SS looked too cool, so they needed to shit him up for the next time around.

    Since Sunspot is orange/white, can we expect a Mindwipe repaint like that?

    ...Because I'd love that.

    So looking forward to the Scouts, Highbrow, and Stakeout. :p 

    There's the HFTD Lugnut coming up if you can wait long enough.

    Was Sunspot seen at Botcon, or is this the first time we've seen it?

    ...and was Strafe confirmed as the Mindwipe repaint?

    Can't remember either.

    Sunspot was at BotCon. I don't recall the mysterious Strafe being mentioned or shown.

    Well, the white makes it look more like the BAE Corax his vehicle mode is based upon, at least.

    Keeping with the headmaster homage...maybe Weirdwolf? He was yellow and white, right?

    I am REALLY hoping Firetrap reaches my area. I never saw a single Scattorshot in stores (or Skystalker for that matter).

    Oh wow, I just google image'd it and you're right. Crap, now I kind of like his vehicle mode but man, that yellow... I guess it fits the character but... yeesh.

    Highbrow's P-38 mode looks great...otherwise I just get the feeling of a Star Wars Transformer from the robot mode.

    To be honest,I am getting really tired of seeing the A. Lockdown figure,how many times is
    Hasbro gonna keep using him.I didn't mind the first 3 maybe 4 repaint/remolds,but he is
    on like his 10th version.I just wish Hasbro would choose someone else to remake.

    As for the other stuff,they are as follows:
    Sunspot is probably the best Scout ever and those colors are wild as sh**,gorgeous
    repaint of SS.
    PCC Combiners are awesome but the drones eh to me.
    Deluxe Ratchet is 10x better than that bright green turd first released,a definite buy.
    Bumblebee as usual an easy pass as I already have about 10 versions of him from
    Legends to Ultimate,don't need another one.
    The rest I may get if I have the money.

    Umm...Axor, and the mold it's a repaint/retool of, is a completely different mold, not another repaint of the Animated Lockdown figure (which on it's own has only had a total of five uses).
