    Did they ever have that Chromia-esque Arcee repaint on their website? I can find all the scouts except that one. or are they just at the stores?

    I like this Arcee repaint beter than the blue currently out. Skyblast and Armorhide are both nice in this deco but I will wait until alt mode pictures surface before I make a decision if I will buy are not. These Target exclusives are a Cath 22 though. Good for those who are tired of repaints or have no interest that these figures are exclusives because it takes away chances of an impulse buy at TRU or Wal-Mart. Bad for those who want these figures but are not near a Target.

    Lovin' the new armorhide. The front page post originally says he's dark blue but he looks black and yellow to me. If he's black I'll give him decepticon stickers so I got one one each side.If he is dark blue he may finally become who he should have been in the first place, Huffer. Just add some orange. I think I may finally buy the Arcee/female botcycle mold. I missed the first pink one.

    Oh and for +10 geek points I'd say that you (Dio) are refering to black kryptonite and it's effects on Superman/Kryptonians

    I might get the Skyblast repaint. Maybe I could use him for Classics. As for the others, meh. Amorhide already has a decent paint scheme and another Acree? I'll pass

    I was thinking blue would go with Pipes. Anybody remember Pipes? You never hear anything about him.

    Well I've gone for the other Target repaints so I might was well go in for this batch to. At least it's repaints in interesting colors rather than some bad color mix. Now too bad one of these repaints aren't a Classics line Thundercracker in different colors from the Con exclusive.

    I think it's lame that they're fucking throwing filler into the line like this, but, you can't go wrong with the Armorhide mold eh

    Elita-1 looks more like Arcee than the Arcee figure. I'll likely get that to throw with my classics. It's inexpensive enough.


    Black Kryptonite ftw:D

    Yeah! I was noticing that this "Elita One" repaint is actually like a more cartoon-accurate Arcee colour scheme.

    Now, as I recall it, RED Kryptonite split Superman into a good and evil Clark and Superman... as did the Synthetic Kryptonite in Superman 3.

    (But then, the Red Kryptonite story is pre-crisis and then some... maybe they've updated it with Black K.)

    I confess I'm a bit disappointed with these repaints... I mean, Armorhide was MADE to be Huffer. Hartop should have been Beachcomber, Shortround as Seaspray. I do dig most of the new decos though...

    Hmm... Elita-1 came out of nowhere.

    Wasn't there supposed to be 2 Strongarm molds?

    Hmm. I wonder if an unrevealed repaint will be called Slag? I remember two names appearing at the same time as new Hasbro trademarks - Elita-1 and Slag.

    I'll have to get the Armorhide, he was my fav from the Cybertron line and that repaint isn't too shabby. The Elita-1 is a must if for no other reason then to give to my daughters although I would like to get on in package to hang on my wall.

    Apart from my continued indifference to SKYBLAST (or whatever he's called now!), they're not too bad. I never had that ARMORHIDE mould so like the looks of him especially.
