Now, if we could only get Dragstrip and Wildrider on HTS, then we'd be in business!!!

If they fixed Megatron's foot flaw, then he's a yes.

Overkill is the one I'm most interested in.

I’ll be getting all but Prime.

I hope these aren’t too limited…

Damb, right! The Henkei Wildrider is ridiculously expensive and not all that inspired. I hope if Hasbro does a version they make him look like Wildrider and not a straight Rodimus repaint. And no online stores carry him. Just eBay. :-x I will definitely be picking all of these up except Optimus, he's just not that different.

Now if they'd release the BotCon 06 souvenirs at retail, I'd be a very happy man. If they're releasing a BotCon figure that used to be limited to about 30, why not?

Custom Class figures aren't actual BotCon toys.

(99% certain on this)

They're listed on the Transformers wiki, so it's not really a kitbash ether.

Classics Mirage as Dragstrip?

Crasher/Fracture is going to get a twin brother!

That...authenticates nothing.

Ooh, I'd take Overkill. Never thought that mold worked for Grimlock, but I can live with it as a minor character.

QFT.
He's probably the only one of these four that I'll pick up. I'm a sucker for any Megatron with a G1 color scheme.

Just emailed HTSUK to ask.

can't believe 3 of the 4 are up already. ok and ds are the only two i'm interested in and at least one is ordered now. can't justify money for that those shitty megs and ops molds

Megatron might be worth getting along with Overkill. I'd like to see more pics of Dragstrips but there's he's not available on HTS. :-(

looks like my question has been answerd looks to me these wont be selling in stores nothing against grimlock i dont like the pain theme on him call me old fashiond but when it comes to to transformer figures i like the oringal colors more than the repaints.

unless if the repaint version is much better than the original like cybertron evac, or breakaway as hotshot repaint those i liked.

I got the 2-pack Prime and Megs from Wal-Mart for $10 total last year. These repaints are not bad but I'm not sure about spending $16 plus tax and shipping to get one.

Ordered Overkill, now only 53-55 days of waiting to see how bad Hasbro destroys the nice box that he comes in.

they should just put the figures in a tightly wound mess of bubble wrap and packing tape and send them that way. why even bother with a box

4 Figures
3 Terrible Molds
1 Big waste of time.

Chaoslock wrote:Prime and Megs: "New packaging, same product. Losers." It would have been so much better to re-release the Classics Voyager Megs and Prime in that packaging, those deluxe molds FAIL.

Overkill and Dragstrip: Gotta see them to judge them, but those boxes alone are enough to buy each of the two.


These 4 are the worst molds of the original classic line avoid them. Both the Grimlock/Overkill and Mirage/Dragstrip molds are worse than the Optimus Prime and Megatron.
