well. Nice to see the Asian "exclusives" are coming out in the west too, means I can hold off on the buying. Probably get me all the deluxes now, if I can. (maybe not Swerve)The scouts don't look bad either.
Ruination, eh? There's something really wrong if the only colour scheme of a toy that looks right is the G2 neon version. Prior to seeing the pics I was thinking that the retools might be okay, and the characters they'd picked weren't bad choices. I have since been corrected. I do notice that Ruination has flying feet and ground vehicle arms. Wonder if Bruticus can do that or if that's one of the remolds?
FOC Blaster is really quite cool. I might even like him more than Soundwave. Dammit, I'm going to try and get all these guys now. Sort of surprised they didn't pack 1 Autobot "tape" and 1 Decepticon, in a versus pack with a "also: buy their daddies; Blaster and Soundwave!" cross-sell on the packs.
