Why are they rereleasing old figures into the movie line? The old figures don't resemble the style of the movie toys. Have they run out of ideas?

Because they can. This actually isn't the first time they rereleased old figures into the movie line. They did it with a couple of scout figures. Infact, I think alot of the scout figures are remolds.

And none of us should be complaining, since these Cybertron figures haven't been repainted that often, and these aren't exactly crappy repaints.

Like I said before, I'm buying all of these.

Strange, when I edit a post, all the direct links disappear for no reason... hmm... if anyone wants the links to the auctions, check the story on the mainpage, the links should still be there.

They all look good except Divebomb, that Thundercracker mold is horrible, and those ugly colours don't do anything to make it more appealing.

Big Daddy is the best and most original of the bunch! Such a great idea!

Perhaps they're trying to get all the use they can out of these mediocre molds before they break so they don't have to store them, & perhaps could recycle the materials in the broken mediocre molds to make better molds later.....hopefully.

I never owned a Cybertron figure before, so I don't know the crappiness of the Cyber keys or the quality of plastic, so could you explain why the Thundercracker mold is horrible?

Haha, I thought i'd see 'Grindhouse' before I'd see a transformer named 'Grindcore'.

No you're not! That name jumped out at me right away, very cool and original - though I think it would suit a Decepticon better. It's almost as good a name as "Meantime"!

The Cybertron line as a whole was very, very good. Lots of great figures, and the gimmick was interesting without gettting in the way - the figures had lots of play value... but Thundercracker... jeez, his feet are so small he can barely stand up, he has a big dumb head that's way too big for the rest of his body and he has a giant clothes-pin for an arm. His gimmick isn't even interesting, his arm just opens a teeny little bit, just enough to shoot a missile out. Oh, and he has all these rubber bits in vehicle mode, and he just transforms into one ugly Decepticon.

If you never get a Cybertron toy, I suggest you go back and pick up a few of them (Armorhide, Downshift, Landmine, Shortround, Evac, to name a few...) but avoid Thundercracker.

Thanks for the insight, Skowl. I think it's either Hot Shot, Excellion, Crosswise or Thunderblast in the Mail right now.. so hopefully they'll lead me to buy more of the Cybertron line-up, once all of those Takara mini-cons are taken care of.

I always kind of beleave it is because they need to free up space for new figures coming in but then I think nah because what does that have to do with repainted figures.

[color=#FF0000]I'll deffinutly try and pick up Big Daddy (great design, and the coulours look good too) and Jolt (I have so far utterly failed to pick up Crosswise or Smokescreen). I might pick up Grindcore, but I already have the Cybertron version (Landmine?) and it's ok, but not really worth a second go.

Pass on the other one, I already have Thundercracker and Skywarp, and they were pants enough.

As for Cybertron as a whole, it was a fantastic line, the best all round transformers line of the lot IMO, and it's a blessing that they have started repainting them instead of making yet more ugly, fragile and boring movie toys with that stupid and pointless automorph gimmick...[/color]

hmn. Deco reminds me of the desert-camo Ruination set, only this one's better. Might get this one.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm gonna buy it just because his name's Big Daddy. It's kinda like Sam's user name on eBay being Lady's Man 217 though.

Edit: Besides that, Downshift is my favorite figure from Cybertron. Just too good a figure for me to pass on.

As far as repaints go, these are pretty top notch. I'll definately pick all of them up, especially since I missed out on a few of the figures originally (Crosswise, and my Landmine isn't complete)

I also hope that the head mold on Divebomb actually resembles the package (with the pseudo face plate.) It'd look really nice, and gives it a sort of pilot helmet look- which is really somehting that should be utilized more often on jet-formers

I loved the originals and I have the same feelings about these repaints, I will more than likely buy them all.
Another thing I like is that they’re re-releasing these figures a lot of people missed out on.

He reminds me a lot of a cyberjet and correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t the Japanese version not have the cheesy plastic?
