    Curious, maybe it's the ER mold in green and purple camo?

    If those figures are remolded to look earth mode wise, I'm in.

    The amount of repacks? is concerning.

    Well, as I said, the only way I was buying ER Megatron and Starscream was if there was an interesting repaint on the horizon. Thanks Hasbro for listening?

    If that's the case, than those rumors that also had Hubcap, Rotorstorm, etc, are still in play.

    There's a Seeker repaint I'd buy, hoping no crazy smirks

    I wonder what shade of Hound and Sideswipe.....hope it's not that cartoon style.

    They're probably just straight reissues, noting the inclusion of Chromia and Refraktor. But I think we'll get those eventually! Hyped for Sideswipe in particular.

    Didn't those rumors have a seeker two pack, too? Maybe Bitstream and Sunstorm

    "Battlefield Megatron" makes me think it has to be the Green G2 deco with purple camo. The camouflage for him on the battlefield.

    Honestly I’m most intrigued by the fact that they’re all listed as “WFC N”. This couldn’t possibly be WFC3 listings already, right?

    They've milked the Siege Megatron a bit too much me thinks.

    I wonder if those reissues will just be online only reissues?

    I actually think occasional reissues of desirable figures online would be a good business model for Hasbro to take on. Like Bandai's model kit reissues where even older ones still get occasional reissues.

    I wonder if Hotlink is getting a single release because it could double as the generic Air Warrior troopbuilder.

    I hope these reissues are ACTUALLY reissues... same packaging and everything. I intend to complete to 100% the WFC trilogy (and then from there out, probably just MPs/3A), but Astrotrain and Smashdown having new packaging meant buying them (even though I didn’t particularly want to).
