*sighs*

I knew they were going to be repaints.

I knew they were going to be terrible.

....I never expected this. Blech.

The Real Gear figures were neat the first time, and repaint complaints aside, this is just overkill. Why not release the Allspark Power line sooner and stop the trickling out of lame ass stuff that is still available in their original forms?

I finally saw what was left of the second wave for the first time Tuesday. And since both the original wave and the 2-packs are the only toys left on the shelves and nobody wants them, why repaint?

Oh, wait. I forgot what company we were dealing with here.

I keep reading comments about how the Real Gears "don't sell," and yet, they're just as sparse--at K-Mart, TRU and BOTH Wal-Marts--here as the rest of the TFs. (West-Central Indiana)

The only stuff that DOESN'T seem to move are the Star Wars TFs and the Role Play stuff (Prime/Starscream blasters, Prime Helmets, etc).

Is there anything from the movie line which hasn't been repainted, or remade?

Photon T-34 added to the list, I love the Spy Shot mold. The others don't interest me.

Yikes, they are really watering down the line with all of these repaints.

no new mold = no new purchase.

Box these up Hasbro, bust them out again in a few years when they have a chance to be missed, and I'll bet they'll sell.

Otherwise, these be clutter!

Both repaints of Spoeed Dial have been great, they are so different than the original. Helps that it's a fun (it simple) mould too.

Same can be said for Spyshot!

If they're repainting Spyshot 6 anyway, it would be nice if they'd replace the viewfinder sticker with something actually from the movie.

Other than that, yeah, waste of time. Might be worth doing a few years down the line, but not so soon. Put this stuff to one side and get on with TF:Animated already.

Repaints up until the Animated figures ever come out

This is all we have to look forward to

With all the repaints why can't they repaint Spyshot in Reflector's colors?

I'll snag one in the hopes that they do a 3rd repaint of him, just to have the 3 camera bots, even if they don't combine.

The picture is supposedly a screenshot from the Movie's video game, of Prime fighting Barricade
