Outside of LandMine and Stockade, these are a pass.

There's a limit to what I'll buy/rebuy and this is pretty much beyond it. The Bumblebee will be tempting only because I've collected Camaros for most of my life.

I don't really see much difference with Barricade, definitely not enough to justify buying another one.

I already have 2 Jazzes and, really, no matter how much you dress him up, his movie figure isn't that great.

Out of this Bumblebee, the stealth one, and Cliffjumper, the Premium places a distant 3rd on which Concept Camaro repaint I would want.

The Premium series is just something I don't appreciate and the only 1 out of the line I will consider is Leader Megatron since I passed on the original.

I'm glad to see better quality paint on the in-movie characters, but this release-a sub-par-version-then-release-a-superior-verson strategy of putting out repaints is a new low.

That said, I'll probably get them all.

wheee. now to find out a way to sell my extra Concept BB to fund that Premium one.

at least i won't have to purchase a crappy repaint in Stealth BB and replace the mask on the original Concept's head.

that said, after trading the Autobots (with the exception of Prime and Ironhide maybe) to Premiums, maybe i can move on from the "collecting hell" phase of my TF life that was the TFTM franchise, and get back on acquiring all those yummy TFs that eluded my grasp in the past. TFTMs are sooo n00b IMHO.



:MAX:

I'll have to see these in person before I pass final judgement on them. Barricade will have to look a LOT better for me to even consider buying it. I like black cars so I will probably pick up 2 Stealth BBs and switch one of the heads to my original 09.

Released at mass retail? Boy does that ever suck, cant a poor man make a buck or two on these sort of things?

I'm liking Landmine, but Barricade & Jazz as much as I want them, I don't like wasting money on a Transformer I already have repainted/(sometimes)resculpted. I passed on Recon & Final Battle, & I'll pass on these guys, think I'd rather get the Stealth BB &/or Cliffjumper than the metallic BB

I'm really tired of the repaints, repaints, repaints. Hasbro can't ramp up production of the Animated line when the series is out and they need to capitalize on sales but they can churn out more repaints? OK, there are a few originals here but come on, the Jazz mold wasn't so great that most people will buy 3 or 4 of them. Barricade too.

Give us the damn animated figures already-or new universe figs. Enough with the movie line already!!!

Bitter moment over...

well the yellow bumblebee w/mask certainly came out of left field. I'll get that one instead of the mainly black repaint. Need him for my desk display!

bah.. i have 4 concept camaros already :\

Oh man... that Stockade just looks more and more awsome every time i see it.

For me, the only Premium worth buying is Leader Megatron, and only because the original they screwed up the original paint scheme so badly.

All the other figures got the colours pretty much spot-on, so the improvements aren't that noticeable.

So basically I'm only getting the bumblebee, landmine, stockade for sure, maybe jazz.... but these other ones are passes... barricade is tempting, but I dont like his robot mode.

I will have to see these in person in order to determine if I want one of them. If not, I can save some of my money for future lines of this year.

Coloring looks pretty well done and as many of you I'll catch one or two perhaps... but, I have one last word

one word...

repaints...

Frenzy looks better painted.

Cujo, why get them if you post a frowny face with them?

I understand wanting great toys, but just cause it had some air time, doesn't mean you have to get it(or did the smily link put up the wrong face, cause that's been happening to me)

And to Nekoman, your sad that these will be mass released because you can't scalp these...!?!

It makes me real mad that you'd screw the fanbase like that, bad enough we have Hasbro and stores like BBTS to tend with!

But hey, poor you that you can't triple charge us :cry:
