For all the time and effort that Hasbro put into these "more accurate" premium figures we probably could have gotten larger scale versions of the deluxes. For example, the voyager Bonecrusher that we asked for at Botcon, and Alternator size Bumblebee, Barricade and maybe Jazz. Prehaps even a leader Blackout
I know it is cheaper to just repaint the existing moulds but delaying new figures from universe and animated just to give us more of the same stuff with a few small differences from what we all bought 7 months ago in june just doesn't seem right.
That's what I think anyway, for what it's worth. I guess I just will be buying old G1 figures for the next 6 months.
