I think it is utterly hilarious that it is practically impossible for any surprises to come out for TF toys anymore.
There's still the "is it or is it not" question regarding that Botcon Alpha Trion but on the whole, the internets have totally destroyed toy (and other geek) surprises.
Case in point: the inevitable repaints of movie toys, this time in G1-inspired color schemes.
So far we got a more ambulancey Ratchet and a G1-ish Starscream with the Thundercracker head.
This will probably be the Ratchet I buy if I buy any at all.
I like the alt mode done up in the white and red far better than the yellow original one.
The Starscream does absolutely nothing for me whatsoever and for a second I thought it was just the Energon Starscream repaint based on the thumbnail.
