    Pass. Though the paint is obviously superior here, I already have the toys. Not need to get them again just because they have some more paint.

    Interesting, but, I'm happy with the Voyager Ironhide and Blackout that I have.

    Yes! A metallic chromed Scorponok! Hasbro, you magnificent bastards, you.

    The Blackout looks so much better, but can't justify the expense.

    These premium repaints rock! For someone who passed on the movie toys the first time around because I hated the lack of color and detail, I'm excited to finally get these figures.

    For the figures themselves, Ironhide looks great but I don't remember him having the autobot logo on the hood? Is that really movie accurate? As for Blackout, it sucks for all those who paid a premium for the Lawson "exclusive". The painted Scorponok is awesome too.

    I love that little Scorponok!

    That's the price to see these as mass release voyagers: they have to use the same shape of packaging. I'd have loved to have seen these two packaged like Premium Ratchet and Megatron. :D

    So, when do we expect to start seeing people report that their Local TRU has tons of Premium Blackouts that were returned with the normal grey scorpy?

    Ironhide is quite nice, glad I held off on him.

    Well, Im no hardcore collector of TF toys. That Blackout is neato though, but I already got a voyager of him. Should I really care about buying this one? (btw if I ever do buy one, who'd want my old one?)

    Yay! Glad I passed on Blackout first. Ironhide depends how shiny his truck mode is.

    As was I. I wonder if the deluxe premiums will be packaged like the original deluxes as well.

    IF I would pull a lame stunt like that, I'd put the regular Blackout in there along with the gray Scorponok. Premium Blackout is way nicer.
