No, they're most likely real. A hasbro representative promised that there would be no repaints from older series in the Armada line. The repaints will be packaged under a different name. In this case, it's the dinobots, and others have been packaged under RID.

Mm, those colors look like ass, and theyre far too bright and just...tangy..yes..

The original ones from the BW line are much better imo.

Oh, I thought the problem was that they put French before English...

Yes, that is a problem. I can't be expected to find my language mixed among 2 Spanish and French. Ayway, why bother putting French on the package anyway? If the wortless French can't read it, they don't need to buy it...

Well, they put French on it so that it can be sold in Canada since they have some laws mandating French on everything somewhere up there, and they have Spanish for Mexico - keeps the printing and packaging costs down when they can use the same packaging throughout all of North America.

Yah... the french is so they can be sold in New Brunswick and Quebec. The other provinces dont care about french.

The Hasbro insider had said no repaints of other lines but he then later apologised when it was announced that repainted Rhinox, Airrazor, Cheetor, etc... would appear as part of the Armada line.

The Dinobots are most likely a sub group of of the TF Universe line.

I see Hasbro wants to save as much money as they can... Worst thing... they don't even sell Armada here in Mexico!

(But I'll be glad of it... if the toys start to look like those odd repaints )
I have a BW Dinobot and looks neat! if my Dinobot could be a living being he would surely die of a heart attack by just looking at the repaint

While it would be nice to have those molds finally, I look at that neon-looking red on Dinobot and I just cringe. But if it were darker, then it would resemble blood splatter, and that'd look damn cool.
