    As long as they're all Decepticons I feel the same way.

    I'll be skipping most of these, but that Jazz looks interesting! A little gold paint and some well placed flames and we've got a movie-verse Ricochet! I'll probably get that Wal-Mart Legends set as well...

    Space Case and Deluxe Prime are mine. Other than that I really don't see anything I want here.

    Anybody notice that the new head on Terradive looks practically NOTHING like Space Case's head? Do you think Hasbro has another wide release character planned and this is just an extra repaint for the sake of giving retailers an exclusive? Though I'm still not sure who that new head could be unless it's just a new character. I doubt they were thinking G2 Cyberjets from the beginning considering they could have done the new head to look like a Cyberjet, but didn't.

    Interesting trivia from Rik Alvarez in a recent interview, he said the Space Case was originally designed to be exactly G2 colors. It was a marketing guy who forced the color changes to what came out, because he said it would look more space-y and saleable.

    I have no doubt the core design team often times comes up with better product than is realized due to other portions of a corporation sticking their noses in where they don't belong. Clearly this was a case of this - I don't think it affected sales one iota. I don't even think there were that many produced?

    It was part of a Target exclusive set, one per case, and I'm sure it sold out the minute it was released. So no, they couldn't have sold more than they did unless they made more.

    He still looks nice and it is one of the best molds of all time, but definitely loses some SpaceCase-ness, especially considering he doesn't have the right head so the colors go a long way.
