Many rejoiced. Some however, were reluctant to believe. Enter the Defendant, T-Macksimus.
T-Macksimus wrote:Don't get too excited folks. All we have are confirmation of names. As we have already seen they are not at all opposed to giving us repaints (which I expect both of these to be) or underwhelming molds. If you have any high hopes or expectations you might as well leave them at the door because I will bet a shiny new Titan class Metroplex that Hasbro is going to screw us over on Arcee... AGAIN! Generations started strong and has slowly gone downhill and the fact that the 30th Anniv. is here doesn't seem to matter to them one bit. >:oP
Expecting nothing more than a repaint, the bet was made, "a shiny new Titan class Metroplex that Hasbro is going to screw us over on Arcee"
Enter the Plaintiff, Burn

Now coming out of BotCon this past weekend came the unveil of Generations Arcee.
Exhibit A - Generations Arcee
Clearly, not a repaint, not even a heavily modified mold. An entirely new figure.
So what did the Defendant have to say on the matter?
T-Macksimus wrote:Ok Burn, I know you have my quote on you sig line about betting a Metroplex that Hasbro was going to screw us on Arcee... well, I am not going to consider THAT clunky Brickformer with more back-kibble than most of the TF4 figures to be a serious attempt by Hasbro at a decent Arcee. Half a dozen 3rd party companies have done FAR better than the #1 toy company in the entire Northern Hemisphere so I'm still saying we got screwed and I'm not touching that toy. Try Again Hasbro and keep trying until you get it right!!
The Defendant has tried to change the very nature of the bet. Not only does it have to be a repaint, he now expects me to accept the condition that it must meet with his approval!
So I turn this over to you, our fellow peers. Has T-Macksimus lost the bet and thus owes me a brand new Metroplex, or has the conditions of the bet been met and as such I lose the bet?
I allow you all to retire to consider your decision, and to cast your decision by voting on who wins the bet, T-Macksimus, or Burn. You have seven days to decide!
