Now I've never been one to knock the cheapest basic figures that Hasbro produces.
In fact, out of Superlink/Energon the basics are actually superior to the majority of the line for me.
And while I wasn't a fan of the Energon combiners, I did like the individual basics and 2 out of 3 of the "main" combiner parts.
That said, Energon and Cybertron basics are being repainted to fill the lowest price-point void in the movie line, under the Sector 7 branding or some shit.
I'm actually more impressed with these Sector 7 repaints than some of the original line version.
I love this new Sklyblast and I even love the metallic blue repaint of the Arcee that's coming out.
Alas, this Clocker repaint is kind of disappointing. I think it is the blue and grey combination. It is the same kind of palette that made my find Alternator Camshaft not worth opening.
Then again, I love the 2 Botcon repaints/retools of Clocker so that could have something to do with it too.
I wonder if they'll just do the basics and not try and fit some of the combiner parts into this Sector 7 thing.
There's no reason why not to release them in good colors. They don't have to have the combiner gimmick to be good figures.
Skyblast... you are definitely going to be mine though!
