Revenge of the Repaints

More pictures are online for various additions to the Transformers 2 toy line all three are repaints of toys from previous lines.

First up from TF08.net is Superion which is really a repaint of the Transformers: Energon toy. The name of the gestalt formed when the five Aerielbots Airazor, Air Raid, Fireflight, Silverbolt and Skydive merge. You will notice that it’s really three toys with two repaints to create the five figures need for the combine. I am not sure why this isn't being released as part of the Universe line, except maybe because it already had been back in 2006 and Hasbro just wants to dip back in the well considering the merge theme that is rumored as part some of the Revenge of the Fallen characters. Thanks to Dan for the link.


Next is repaints of the first Transformers movie line Starscream as Ramjet and Skywarp from TFormers.com. Both Decepticons, both have a long tradition back to the G1 days of being repaints of Starscream. Clearly the tradition continues.

  1. Energon was a toy line, all of the toys were different. How exactly is it a repaint?
