First, let me say that it is a very smart business move by Hasbro to "reissue" popular molds from previous lines. This has been covered in every thread that talks about a new repaint, but these repaints serve at least three purposes:
1. Fills a gap created by the delay in getting the "Animated" figures to market. They can put whatever spin they want on it, but there is no way that they wanted such a gap between the launch of their new show and the arrival of the toys for the kiddies to buy. Something needs to be on the shelves for them to buy. The quickest way to get something to market would be to make more of something you've already got - hence the repaints.
2. A lot of folks have returned to collecting TFs with the Classics and movie lines (I'm one of them). While I was able to get some cool CYB figures that were still out when Classics hit the shelves, there were many that I missed out on. This gives folks like me a chance to get molds that are often praised (Landmine comes to mind).
3. Any of these figures that sell will have a larger profit margin than any new molds. This is because you eliminate the big expenses - R&D, testing, quality control. The more money Hasbro makes, the more willing they are going to be to pump those funds into more new stuff down the line. How is that a bad thing???
So, bring on the repaints! As has been said before, if you don't like 'em, don't buy 'em.
