Looked at the pictures, liked what I saw until I got to Smokescreen. It took me a damned long time to get used to Knockout when I first looked at him as he was. Truth be told that after I decided to buy him, actually got him out of the packaging and took a closer look at him, I found I actually liked the mold quite a bit. So far I haven't touched any of the Prime repaints partly because I think it's cheap, but also at the Walmart I work at they retail for $15.47 and I don't dish out the money unless it's a must have. I don't mind a repaint when it's done for characters that share the same body, but have different colors like the G1 Seekers for example, but this is not a case like that.

I will say this in Smoke/out's defense: at least it wasn't another Bumblebee.

It looks like Smokescreen has a new head and a spoiler molded onto the rear of his vehicle. He looks better than I was anticipating, now he just needs the door wings.
Nemesis Prime and CYLAS Breakdown are kind of underwhelming. In the show they were more like washed out versions of their original colors than straight black. I'll refrain from judging too harshly until we get better pictures.

I suppose at least Smokescreen isn't a repaint of Bumblebee.

When it comes to my "Arms Micron" collection, Wildrider is next. Loved the paint scheme, and bet the box art will be as nice. But with "Arms Micron" Smokescreen... He is a definite maybe on account that I need a more reasons to add him to my collection. >:oP

I still haven't seen the episodes with Smokescreen, but it's a bit disappointing how little is remolded, because he doesn't look all that much like Knockout. Ah well, could be worse. Hopefully the Hasbro version ends up looking decent.

Very disappointed with Silas Breakdown and especially Smokescreen. He deserved a mold of his own.

The only one i was kind of looking forward to was smokescreen. Whats annoying is that his vehicle mode looks nothing like it does in the show. Of all things they had to remould Knockout. Oh well heres hoping Darkest Megatron and the Jet Vehicon General are better.

I was reading in Tformers that the number for the Fort Max reissue is actually "23A". As in, this is some different variation of Fort Max. Can anyone confirm?

I have to say I'm a little disappointed. Smokescreen simply doesn't look like Smokescreen. The colors (stickers) look pretty good but that mold just doesn't work for him.

Cylas/Silas Breakdown looks pretty good. I agree that a more washed out and even darker blue would look better but the black doesn't look too bad. I have AM-12 Breakdown and having a black version for Silas will definitely stand out more than another shade of blue.

I preordered Silas, but not Smokescreen and I'm still glad I did. I agree with everybody about "not another BB mold" for Smokescreen, but Knockout's mold doesn't do it for me either. I just really hope Hasbro releases an actual Smokescreen mold in the Beast Hunters line (w/out all the spikes, helmets, gear too). :PRAY:

I'm getting a Galvatron vs Ultra Magnus vibe from the "Tank Master vs Marine Master" set. Also, where's Fort Max's God Sword?!?!?!

Im sure this has been brought up before but why is Bluestreak called Smokescreen? Guess the same reason why Chromia is called Arcee, hasbro are morons. Or they did what they always do,slap the wrong name on a character to keep the trademark.

Yeah not impressed with Smokescreen at all. They needed to do a lot more remolding with him and instead did next to nothing. As a main character, he deserves a lot better. Hopefully Hasbro does better.

Nope, they're incorrect, FM is still 23. The new Devastator however is 20A, with A standing for "anime".

If the doors were retooled onto his wings rather than his arms, I'd be happy. Unfortunately, they are not, and therefore I will pray Hasbro gives us something better. :roll:

I see a clear blue B2. Those who wanted an all clear blue Star Saber just might get their wish. ;)

Would prefer the rusted-ish blue we saw in the episode for Breakdown than the black, but considering that most of the episode was at night, and dark colors tend to look black at that time, I could care less.

Smokescreen is a "meh". It looks decent, it's obviously not going to be perfect, but it's something I can live with. As mentioned by other users, "at least it isn't Bumblebee. :roll: "
