Default Remember Universe "Overbite & Buzzclaw"? They're Energon now!

Those who followed my "whatever happened to...?" thread might still remember them. For those who don't, here's the rundown:
Original Wal*Mart listing from March 2004: 80948 Overbite w/Buzzclaw
Chinese listing from April 2004: 80948 Cybershark with Buzzclaw

Recently, Monzo told me over at Allspark that "Buzzclaw" was going to be named "Repugnus".

Now, the surprise:

Energon?!?

They're redecos of BW Cybershark and Buzzclaw.

Repugnus is an homage to G1 Repugnus.

And the story blurb refers to the UNIVERSE story, so it's another case of "misfiled" listings.

On a sidenote, they finally have product pages for Kickback, Stormcloud and Six Shot up as well.

More specifically, it's a redeco of Hellscream, who was remolded from Cybershark.

Nice choice from Hasbro to release Hellscream's mold. Perhaps to be followed by other BWII cyborg remolds later? Not that glad about rerelease of Buzzclaw's mold.
