Awesome. I can't wait to get these repaints of real gears that are warming the shelves.

I can't wait for Chronos, the repaint of Mean time either.

So this time around the picture on the back of the camera is actually from the movie.

Probably not enough to justify a repeat purchase though.

Photon has an iffy paint scheme if you ask me, while I like the colors it doesn’t differentiate itself enough from Spyshot. Probably get it anyway since I’m a sucker for repaints (and cheap ones especially). As for Highline, I find the red to be rather attractive, I don’t already own a version of this mold so I’ll probably pick this one up.

I'm actually really excited about these toys. I haven't bought a figure in ages and I don't own any Real Gears- and these puppies are pretty looking and right in my price range :grin: I'll definately be getting Photon (I'm loving that head sculpt- one my all time favs I think), not so sure about Highline but we'll see. Does anyone know if they have a January UK release as well? or even if they'll appear in the UK at all?

If he/she is, then we have a real gear fembot!

Highline is red, I have an LCD screen as well, it makes Cliffjumper look the same off red color.

If it was that simple, you wouldn't get plastic surgeons making a pretty penny from sex change operations. Besides, even if he was pink, it still says 'he' on the back of the card. :)

Absolutely. Don't even hesitate. Spyshot 6 is easily in my top 5 TF acquisitions for last year. A class act all the way.

I actually have a laptop,, by the way.
Anyway, i love the Photon guy. And i like the phonebot mold, so i guess i have to find one of those 3 and get him.

Another real gear that appears to be a must! Didn’t think I would like Power up until I got him, he was actually a really nice figure, will be getting Hacker!

I was just looking at Power Up today. In a warehouse-sized toyshop, he was the only real transformer left in the amongst a handful of 3 inch Titaniums and Transformer Techs, in an pitifully small transformers section.

I've never had much interest in him, and yet again, I passed.

But this repaint looks alright. The Allspark blue actually works here. Bot mode looks pretty smart.

Hacker looks so much better than the Armada-esque Power Up. Getting it! The Spy Shot repaints looks good, I might get it as well. The cell phone, not so sure about the red yet, I'll have to see it in person.
