Transformers Renewal Line?

Post by ColdBain » Wed Apr 18, 2007 6:14 am

I've seen a few Toys websites have these four up for pre-order.

http://www.toywiz.com/trtabcopaenb.html

I haven't heard much about these, but they are using pictures of the toys that are 'un-modified' (look at the Soundwave picture) due to age and restoration and all that.

Does anyone think that these pictures are of the genuine products?

What do people know about this 'Renewal Line', it's completely new to me.

I really hope that picture of Soundwave is an accurate depiction of the toy, because look at his buttons! They are distinguished from one another! No fugly buttons!

Maybe I'm hoping beyond hope here, but an old skool Soundwave is pretty cool, but simultanously annoying for all the various reissues of the guy recently. (TFC Soundwave, TFC Soundblaster, Classics Soundwave, etc).

I wonder if the reissue megatron will shoot pellets just like the 80's Japanese version?
