    Wasn't the entire point of those guys to BE straight-up cash grabs? I mean with a name like Overcharge...

    I think its hilarious that folks are calling these figures "cash grabs" when they're totally driven by what fan's were asking for. You want a real cash grab? Repaint PotP Jazz yellow and call it Blazing Bumblebee. Repaint PotP Grimlock purple and called it Megatron... (oops, don't do that Hasbro, its not meant as a serious idea.)

    I would buy those, no really, as long as they have new heads.

    You know what, I probably would too. A yellow Jazz and purple Grimlock even without new heads would just be too interesting and weird to pass up.

    No, you're just a victim of Poe's Law. We had someone complaining that the BB movie retcon'd G1 last night, so... yeah.

    no, there are just a lot of idiots on the boards that will take everything said 100% factually, see the thread about hasbrotoyshop, even after hasbro clarifies that the site isnt shutting down people still think it is

    After Red Swoop, I'm ready for some G2 colored Dinobots. My imagination will fill in the rest. That may leave out Sludge, but maybe if we're lucky, he'd be retooled into Paddles.

    If Swoop had a planned G2 color scheme, I'm sure Sludge did as well.

    So who's everyone using for Stepper/Ricochet's Targetmaster? Siege Firedrive? I know it's Nightstick, but I don't feel like getting a new Generations Cyclonus for one.
