New pictures are popping up all over the place, and a few of the figures have started to show up. I did get all of the figures for series 1 except for Bumblebee. I figure I will get him just because the only other movie version of him I have is the black deco. (Look for Ironhide coming up. He is in my “to be photographed” pile.)
I am not very amused. Another Skids. REALLY!?!?!? That is what they are going to give us? Another Eta-1. AND another Sideswipe. Okay, I can be behind Sideswipe. With the two guns that can be held or mounted in vehicle mode are pretty nice looking, and the paint job is not a total loss. I will probably pick him up. The only new figure is Hailstorm. Not a bad looking figure, and a nice vehicle mode. I will have to reserve final judgement for when I see him in person.
Here is where we really get a hit and a miss. Bumblebee again. Okay, one series separating the same Bumblebee? They are both listed as Battle Blades Bumblebee. Come On! That is LAME to be sure. At the very least they could have at least repainted him. Something! Throw us a bone. So, now I am sure the pegs will be filling with a million and a half Bumblebees. Oh well.
Another Jolt. Not the greatest of vehicles, or characters, and probably should have been left back in 2008 or whenever he first came out.
Then there is the new blood. Tomahawk and Terradive. These are two nice looking flying vehicles and robots. Silver lining and all that.
