Rollbar?

It'd be nice if the UK backtracked and got Hound, TBH... Swindle isn't exactly an attractive colour, nor does this seem to be.

Prime looks surprisingly good.

Painful.

At least Prime's legs aren't so badly mistransformed in that pic.

He still reminds me of Violet Beauregarde though.

Yeah, my area never got Hound, either. I'm hoping they eventually re-release him, like they're doing with Tracks. My area completely missed the Hound/Tracks wave.

Luckily, I've got Ravage and Swindle, so I still have the molds, and by getting the decepticons, the factions are slightly balanced (I still have more autobots, but it's only something like 7-5, I think). Missed out on Decepticharge as well. Glad I got windcharger. It's proven to be my favorite mold so far, even without the gunbarrel.

You know, I really hate the impreza mold. It's the worst one. You'd think that they'd at least incorporate some of the improvements that were added to the Mazda mold.

I still say that they should have done something different with the Prime. Yeah, the Japanese wanted him to be a Convoy, but the companies could have developed different head molds for their respective toys.

The Subaru mold has been released no more than the Dodge Viper mold or the Jeep Wrangler mold on the US market.

Hmm...

It's amazing how much power a bad picture has...

It's also too blurry to tell, but do Rollbar and Ricochet have new head molds? I know they're supposed to be straight repaints of Swindle and Silverstreak, but so was Swerve to Tracks, and he had a new head, albeit less fancy than normal.

I still hate Prime's alt mode, but seeing as my alts are displayed in robot mode, it shouldn't be an issue. I share Nevermore's discontent about the lack of new head sculpts; HasTak should at least add in some new accessories (extra guns or something) to make up for it.

edit: And where's Mirage? I'm still waiting to see more about him, surely they must have produced some coloured test shots for him by now.

It would have been neat if Stepper, I mean Ricochet came with a targetmaster.

Just the huge chunky chest and tiny skinny little arms.

That said, I'm a sucker, so if they do a semi-decent repaint of him as Trailbreaker or someone I'll get him.

Will give the Prime a miss though, I imagine.

Definitely skipping the oter two repaints.

Do they even have new head molds?

I wasn't sure on the Rollbar.

First Alts without ANY remolding?

Doesn't bode well.

I love it.

The line continues, yet I have no desire to buy them. Thus saving me money and keeping the possibility of better stuff later.

A plan with no drawbacks.

I was gonna say he wasn't an Alt, then remembered he was as well. Forgot that. I bought the BT.

I guess you could argue that he didn't need it anyway, since he was meant to be Sunstreaker initially.

Two rereleases without any remolds does seem worrying though.

My least favorite mold was the Vette Tracks was okay but Ravage and swerve were not.

lets see 4 Subarus. I am not a subaru fan but it was not the worst mold by far. My question is why rollbar Trailbreaker would at least be a fan favorite.

The more i look at prime the more i think that it would look so much better if it weren't for the shoulders being what they are, take off the front wings of the truck and i think it would be vastly improved. Will have to see if theres a trick in the transformation scheme to some how hide them, though i doubt there is.
