Ah yes, I remember when Bakugan started doing figures with a "spin" transformation; I think I stopped following it before they instituted flipping, though. Part of me wishes I'd gotten those 2 Baku-gestalts...

Say, spin-attack Op is actually a good Bot-Shots representation of the Op from that Ultimate Battle DVD 2-pack, with the lever that made his upper body spin like Cy-clone! And a Megatron in THAT color scheme could easily be repurposed as Archforce if it's one Meg too many! Gotta' say, someone's really putting some thought into these little guys!

Still...not even considering getting sucked into this; completism would strike and spell too much of a commitment. Not when I gots Fort Max to save up for. Glad to see these guys in the TF aisle, but I've heard enough warnings about their addictiveness that I'd let myself get sucked into Bronyism first (the ponies can be repurposed as birthday presents to friends' daughters when I come to my senses).

Both the Jump and Spin shots look really interesting. Can't wait to get my hands on them. Just hope the springs in these are more consistent...

Aww, the launchers aren't trailers anymore? That's a bit of a shame. Still, I'll pick up the Prime just so I have another launcher and a G1-styled OP.

Interesting, Megatron has Galvatron colors. I wonder if has anything to do with Beast Hunters. I'd love to see Megs get the purple makeover.
