Huh, didn't know Bluestreak was going to be released via SDCC timing. Ah well, I've got my KO and am happy.
What's been shown thus far is going to be saving me a lot of money. I'll get SkyLynx, but none of the repaint limbs. G2 Superion is tempting since that's the version I had as a kid, but nope. And fucking Scattershot is a Silverbolt remold?! you Hasbro. Seriously. Doesn't even have a new Gestalt head. That's just lazy.
They're milking these molds to death, and then will wonder why sales dried up. Victorion makes my eyes bleed, and has two fucking Alpha Bravo molds? The ?!
Wallet is happy, but I'm not...
I'm in for the Sky Lynx limbs since I am a sucker for G1 cars and they combine. I will skip the G2 stuff since I never liked it.
Victorion -- I still don't understand why this is generating such buzz. It's a "female" combiner...made up of repainted males. I'll give them this -- the combined Victorion looks different and interesting, and more uniform than most combiners, but those colors...especially on all the individual robots...I'm with you. My eyes hurt. I will probably get this, then regret it.
Fans voted for two Alpha Bravos. I don't understand that either. Some people really seem to like it, but I think Alpha Bravo and Offroad are weak sauce molds to begin with, and not just because they aren't original team members. They suck on their own (lack of) merits.
I don't understand Scattershot. Are we getting Technobots or not? The combiner name listed is "Betatron", which says to me they're slapping together some hastily repainted things and calling it a combiner. Hell with that. "Scattershot" looks awful and "Betatron" doesn't even deserve a diss.
You know the repainting has gotten out of control when Hasbro trumpets "Hey kids! Look, new hands and feet! Isn't that awesome?!?"
