    They should repaint TR Repugnus in that green deco and do the small TR repugnus in the red, yellow, and blue decos. Id buy that.

    Things are escalating quickly at Target.

    Also worth noting, over on the Power Rangers forum a random figure no one new existed popped up at Target. So it's possible Hasbro is just dumping everything they can right now to seize shelf space as other companies struggle with distribution due to COVID.

    Odd that they are Decepticons, in the show, they were factionless.
    So any of these is Affluous? Or the other named ones? I need to rewatch that episode.

    But it is... those are all repaints of the 1-step Repugnus.
    EDIT: I just noticed the three beast mode ones are smaller. Huh! New mold?

    None of these is THE Repugnus. In the show the monsterbots had a whole segregated society where the robot mode ones lived like ancient Romans and the monster mode ones raided them for energon. Unable to transform neither side knew they were the same species.

    Well, checking the episode, none of these even looks like Affluous or Stinkus... The green one might be trying to be the harpist at the party I guess?

    I want this so much and I don\'t even know why.

    Cockroaches are my least favorite living thing on this earth and goddamn I need every Repugnus.

    Yes YES YES!!

    Repugnuses for everyone! They're the new Seekers!
    EDIT: Also just noticed the 3 beasts are smaller, too. Odd.

    I was going to ask when he became a con (not having seen the show much). Mine when I was a kid was certainly a bot. You've answered the question for me. Thanks.

    Hmm, checking the episode, maybe the green one could be repurposed as the harpist lady from the episode.

    Btw, they had some hilarious names. Raddus, Hippus, Coolus for the Energon Masters :D  I dunno if Operatus was maybe the lady's name.
    Interesting how much Teknicus and Affluous looked like G1 Groove in robot mode, color-wise.

    I don't think Repugnus ever had any resemblance to roaches. Not unless in your country roaches walk on two legs, have mouths, and giant mandibles. :D 
    If anything he always reminded me of an Umber Hulk. Especially the old 1E/2E art.

    If I had a Target nearby and saw this one the shelf I'd probably get this. Yes they look like KOs but thats part of the charm. Curious to see the back of the box, and if the little ones transform.

    I only noticed later myself that they are actually new, Tiny Turbo Changers sized molds.. same as the Sharkticons in the Hot Rod set. Odd...
    At first I just assumed that since the beast mode of Repugnus is much shorter than the robot mode, they are the same mold.

    Yeah, ditto here. They're definitely transformable, look at the feet-- they're clearly in their "short" version, as they basically bend back at the knee. The knees are their alt mode feet, and you can see how they can rotate out to form the longer robot mode legs.

    I\'m not the only one getting Deja vu, Right? This is exactly how the Micromaster and seeker 3packs were revealed last year, Randomly found at Target, then revealed 3 days later.
