Twitcher F451 - Real Gear Highscore 100 Repaint

They repainted the controller guy to match movie Ratchet, it seems... Why his name is reference to Fahrenheit 451, I have no idea. Maybe he's a fireman, or he finds out the truth about the Decepticon Empire and tries to fight against it.

At any rate, here's yet another repaint on which I'll pass, but I thought that some of you might be interested. :PEACE:

If only I had been five minutes faster… Anyway I like the green, I read on TFW2005 he was meant to look like a Xbox controller.

Seems a bit excessive repainting these guys into oblivion, is it? yeah sure, they're supposed to be everywhere but come on Hasbro... Couldn't we just get the Toaster and Dew-Bots and call it a day?

I like all the repaints, it gives you a little more choice and variety.

Might as well call him Seizure 99089866.8976959858-9.
Really, they are nice figs, but we don't need (more)repaints.
Although, the color ain't too bad....hmmm....

What do all you guys have against repaints? Its just a way for Hasbro to make a little cash, everyone always complains “I want a leader Bonecrusher! Not some silly repaint!" here’s the deal, if Hasbro didn’t make the repaints do you think after awhile we’d see more new molds? The answer you’re looking for is no, all they’re buying is different color paint, they don’t have to make a new toy, in other words, a repaint cost Hasbro nothing and is the necessary stepping stone to making better figures and more money.

If I hadn't picked up High Score first time round, I'd be ALL OVER this guy! Not only is he evil, he totally looks like Master Chief! Pity...

Ugly repaint plus a very flimsy mold equals an easy pass from me.

A lot of money and time goes into each model to just be used once. They want to get as much use out of each one as they can. Hence the repaints. No one says you have to buy them, though, but they probably make enough money through collectors and just those who like variety to justify the production.

HASBRO should really throw out all the green paint that they have. Way too many figs with this awful puke green colour. Is someone at HASBRO having an Exorcist fixation of some sort? BLECK!

Longs for the days of G1 where we only had to worry about Megatron, Soundwave and Laserbeak wanting to be Autobots, Swoop calling himself Tracks and Slingshot calling himself Slingslot!
