    Shame that the Barricade is a chinese deco. If it had been a UK police deco I would have had to buy it.

    "Wow, this makes me happy I skipped on the demolisher 3 pack with the twins. But It also makes me hate that I have to buy a crazy taxi barricade to get a new sideswipe. T.T"


    well I'm actually more interested in the Shanghai PD barricade than the "Allspark Power" Sideswipe (I've allready got his superior repaint Swerve, and the HA version) , so I'd be willing tae split the 2 pack with ye.

    The Twins/Sideswipe pack is skipped, I'll be getting the 4 pack of Sideswipe and Legends Bike sisters

    Arcee and Tail Swipe? yuck, a multipack of craptackular molds, pass. see this is why we don't get awesome like the TFA Marauder Megatron, Hasbro has to actually pay people to think up repaint heavy multipacks like this.

    I don't ever remember Chinese police cars having the neon yellow / blue check pattern, more used to this:

    THANK YOU HASBRO!!!!!! you've saved me some cash.

    They are all terrible, half of them aren't even noticable repaints. Only one new repaint (Tailwind) and he's my all time least favourite mold.


    PASS!

    The Arcee/Tail Whip 2-pack is mine, complete repaints are always buys for me and I like the pinker Arcee. Same with Barricade and Sideswipe, I LOVE that color scheme on Barricade-- it's so G2-ish loud-- and Sideswipe doesn't look half bad in blue either. As of now, I'll be passing on the third 2-pack, though. I already have both the original mass-release Ice Cream Twins AND their versions in the TRU vs. pack, so unless Sideways is considerably more different from the original than he looks in this small pic, there's no reason for me to pick up that one.

    I wonder where that loud lightning-Bumblebee is going to be released, then? Considering we saw him at the same time as Chinese Barricade, their similar loud color schemes, and given their roles in TF1, I had just assumed they were being packed together.

    I'm not interested in these packs at all, but they did remind me that I wanted the original Ice Cream Twins, so I tossed those in my BBTS pile of loot alongside Piranacon. I guess that's something?

    "Suck my popsicle" decal for the Twins or no sale.

    I feel like they've already said they won't do that, though.

    Well I was considering picking up the Interrogator version of Barricade, but decided not to on account of having the much superior Barricade with Frenzy "GrilleMaster" but knowing that crazy G2 barricade will have the probey arms saves me a buy. hmmmm is it just me or is Hasbro really making a push on nutty G2 color schemes this season? I'm kinda scared to think that we may get some version of a Seeker jet (either ROTF Voyager, or Generations) done up in Skyquake's clashtastic gold, green, purple and teal.
