I am not sure. But I think is inevitable all constructicon toys will repaint to G1 colour scheme.

Really? I think Mixmaster looks AWESOME!!!

Heck I may even get the G1 colored one. The movie one doesn't appeal to me at all, but if they do G1 repaints of all the Constructicons, whoa nelly!!!!

I think Mixmaster looks freakin' sweet in those colors, but I suppose it's not in line with the 'real world' setting of the movies. I'll be getting all the Costructicons in both paint apps if they release them. Arcee looks like shit... why not just stick with the design that was scrapped in movie 1? That was so much better than this turd on wheels!

Hmmmm.. I don't hate....Nor do I love it..The purple is what throws it off IMO

Swerve FTW..Can't wait to get him too :grin:

Arcee though.. Pass..

Arcee: Aw come on, why not show the back of the packaging? Arcee's package art's a lazy photoshop of Chromia's, I'm still wondering why she has to have an identical head. Still, I'll be picking her up.

Swerve: Niiiiice. I won't mind a Sideswipe repaint at all.

G1-esque Mixmaster: GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH MY EYES THENEONITBURRRRNS (I think I'll be happy with my non-G1 Mixmaster, thank you very much) !!!!!

Eww, Mixmaster looks ugly in those colors. The silver and gray version looks so much more awesome.

Hmmm, I don't know what to think about Mixmaster--too bad he's not the same green as Long Haul (he seems lighter and more neon). I may wait to pick him up anyway rather than the regular one who's colors are only "meh" to me as well. Arcee is probably a pass, and Swerve is a must get!

I knew it would look horrible. Now I feel vindicated.

I think Mixmaster looks brilliant, but I must say I'm a little disappointed as I was holding out on the G1 repaint being on the legends class figures; that would be all kinds of awesome.

Judging by what I read from people reading the comics and novel, the tree bikes are all Arcee alo G1 cartoon Reflector and only since the movie cut out the combining aspect of her where her tree components treated as individual characters in toy form.

That would probably be enough for me to pick up this guy, Rampage, and Longhaul.
Gah, and I wasn't going to buy anything from this line!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love the Classics line and the updated designs but the movie designs are totally different and I just don't think the aesthetics of the movie line work with G1 colors.

Anybody remember me calling this one on the Constructicons? I said about 2 weeks back that they should absolutely NOT do this and that it would be hideous. Some fans just need to learn, be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. Well folks, here's your G1 repaint. Sucks to be you guys. :lol: :P

I was thinking about getting Mixmaster but after seeing this im going to wait. Does any one know if this version is going to be a store exclusive or will it be mass released? Im defiantly getting swerve. That is what Sideswipe should have looked like in the first place. Arcee i think ill pass on for now. My friend is probably going to pick her up so ill wait until i can see the figure in person. If it can be modded to have some form of legs and look less like a snake ill get it but if that cant be done then it wont be in my vast collection of figures.

Well here comes even more purple and green repaints in the upcoming lines. Sigh.

So, who is this repaint of Sideswipe supposed to be? Or is it just Sideswipe in G1 colors?

Wait, the cycle-sisters aren't going to combine in the movie? Sucks. But yeah, I get the Reflector homage. I wonder if '07 Arcee's head can replace this repainted head of Chromia's... Hmmmm, I don't suppose her '09 alt-mode could conceal this larger head. Oh well.

Thanks for the pointer!

It's supposed to be Swerve, the card bio apparently describing the character of his G1 version quite closely.

Here's his TFwiki page: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Swerve_(G1)

They look nice, but I have no need or desire to bolster my ranks with repaints for the movie line.

I think Mixmaster looks quite good and Swerve looks great.

On-screen characterizations are enough for me this go'round.
