ANOTHER repaint? These should be repainted into figures with new names, not random name prime, or Super duper robot name.

I don't think these are redecos. They're both priced quite high, whereas redecos are typically the same price, added to the fact that nobody knows that they look like.

ANOTHER Bumblebee? What the slag is Hasbro thinking? Why the hell is it always the crappier molds in a series that get repeatedly repainted? And then they wonder why they end up shelf warming.

If you're going to reuse a crap mold, AT LEAST MAKE IT A NEW CHARACTER. Where's our Cliffjumper? Or Hubcap? Or anyone else that traditionally has a similar form to Bumblebee?

At least Grimlock is an awesome enough mold to deserve reuse. Bet this will be a 'more G1 accurate' repaint, maybe with more shiny gold on the chest and such to reflect it.

Hydro whatever Bumbleebee could be a repaint of the Shelfwarmer Cyber Speed BB. I think I read somewhere that they were repainting it. No idea of Grimlock though.

Bumblebee shouldn't be a repaint of the deluxe, as the price is almost $30.00. As someone else posted could be a repaint of that Powerbot/Cyberspeed thing, price seems about right. Grimlock will most likely be a straight repaint of the original voyager.

Their thinking Bumblebee is popular, and he is.

This is a Voyager class toy. TFA Bumblebee was an Deluxe.

I knew it was supposed to be "HydroDrive" and not "Hydrodive" as people were thinking with a submarine or something. That would be extremely dumb.

Golfire? It's probably something to do with fire but the first thing that came into my mind was Grimlock hanging around a golf club practicing his putting...

Obviously Snarlag would be his caddy, and Swoop would hunt for lost balls. :P

Wow, there could be a whole team of golf themed dinobots.

But would he be as good as Gee Dubya?

"Me Grimlock, say now watch this drive!" *Swings and smashes the ball, taking up half the green with it.*
