They repainted the controller guy to match movie Ratchet, it seems... Why his name is reference to Fahrenheit 451, I have no idea. Maybe he's a fireman, or he finds out the truth about the Decepticon Empire and tries to fight against it.

At any rate, here's yet another repaint on which I'll pass, but I thought that some of you might be interested. :PEACE:


Front Paged and Credited. :D

Might as well call him Seizure 99089866.8976959858-9.
Really, they are nice figs, but we don't need (more)repaints.
Although, the color ain't too bad....hmmm....

What do all you guys have against repaints? Its just a way for Hasbro to make a little cash, everyone always complains “I want a leader Bonecrusher! Not some silly repaint!” here’s the deal, if Hasbro didn’t make the repaints do you think after awhile we’d see more new molds? The answer you’re looking for is no, all they’re buying is different color paint, they don’t have to make a new toy, in other words, a repaint cost Hasbro nothing and is the necessary stepping stone to making better figures and more money.

If I hadn't picked up High Score first time round, I'd be ALL OVER this guy! Not only is he evil, he totally looks like Master Chief! Pity...

Oh. It's so Lime Green! :P

I wish I liked the Real Gear Robots more, but they're just really not my cup of tea.

Ugly repaint plus a very flimsy mold equals an easy pass from me.

A lot of money and time goes into each model to just be used once. They want to get as much use out of each one as they can. Hence the repaints. No one says you have to buy them, though, but they probably make enough money through collectors and just those who like variety to justify the production.

HASBRO should really throw out all the green paint that they have. Way too many figs with this awful puke green colour. Is someone at HASBRO having an Exorcist fixation of some sort? BLECK!

I see you guys still didn't get the reference right?
He's supposed to be Master Chief from Halo.

Either that or black so it would look like a PS2/3 controller.

Yeah, we got that. But it's still an ugly colour.

Oh dear.

A simple Black/grey colour configuration would have been perfect for a 'Con version of High Score. The green is just not right. Left overs from Ratchet? ;p

Still he is very different from the original, something every repaint should be, so he gets points for that.

so, whats the F451 stand for? i'm just guessing it stands for farenheit 451 like the other guy.

Despite looking like someone vomited on a ps2 controller, there is something oddly appealing about this figure.

True - the mold. The figure looks very badass!
