    One\'d think they could at least update that atrocious paintjob on the Windblade re-release... she looks nothing like the show model. I had to pay extra for the TF Adventure version.

    Sees
    ...in the front page news story. Looks in thread. Sees "Skysledge and Stormhammer."

    A single Pretender fan tear falls lol. :p 

    J/K Still might actually get this while normally I never dip into these lines just because... it's faintly reminiscent of Skyhammer's look. D: I loved that toy.

    Woah, what is up with Windbalde's face? Is that meant to be a battle mask face or something? Suddenly this random yellow-blade just got more interesting
    Also these new pics of Blurr make him look a lot better than the initial cgi renders did.

    So the paint work is a bit weird on that Windblade, but I'm definitely picking up multiples for that battle mask head alone.

    I like that they changed Blurr's visor to green. It really cements the fact that he's intended to be Rescue Bots Blurr. I'd like if some of the other Rescue Bots would showed in this line, as Warrior Class figures.

    Amazing that they managed to somehow make Windblade's paint WORSE. Finally added the black paint she needed.... but on her face? I'm fascinated by the decision-making here, but not in a good way.

    I find myself hoping Blastwave doesn't make an appearance in the show. I would really rather only buy that mold as Bludgeon, but I know if he makes an on-screen appearance I'll likely be more tempted to pick him up.

    Oh, and no Starscream included here, huh? I wonder if the mass-retail (non-exclusive) version is still slated for release. I was hoping he'd maybe have fixed hip joints. Speaking of which, for those who bought the TAV version of Starscream, how are his hips? Tighter than the TRU version?

    Just personal taste. I've got a 4-year-old who loves Rescue Bots, and I've come to appreciate it. Yes it's a preschool show... but honestly in a lot of ways it's (in my opinion) a more innovative, better-written show than RiD. And as a bonus, the humans aren't as annoying as the terrible RiD humans.

    Purely personal opinion here, I fully expect I'm in the minority.

    I totally agree! And I would love Warrior Class figures of the original four Rescue Bots. Those would instant buys.

    Can someone take closer shots of the transformation instructions? I'd love to know how they transform, but can hardly make it out.

    They missed a chance to release the Green grimlock with the other head on it - that would have tied in nicely with Windblade - likewise if they ever repack Jazz they should put the Japanese head on it.

    Blur is clearly based on his Rescue Boys design, so why color him based on G1?
