I hate to be the wet blanket, but both of those new Unleashed turnarounds look horrid. If the heavily overpriced (and overshipped) Prime wasn't bad enough on its own, now they're having to resort to doing two characters in one sculpture? I mean, Yoda vs. Palpatine is one thing, but Jazz and Ratchet together for the sake of being together? Jeez, let it die Hasbro...
I can't see picking up any of the Leader Class repaints, either. I actually regret buying the Voyager Prime and Megatron (although I do like the BB Megatron and don't regret it), so I can only imagine the level of buyer's remorse I would have with something double the price of those.
The repaints are getting out of hand with this line, though, in my opinion. I mean, G1 inspired repaints like Rescue Ratchet, Starscream, and Jazz I can understand as a niche item, but that "new" Ironhide and "G1 style" Optimus Prime look like ass, and instead of doing a "Nightwatch" Prime, why don't they just reship the movie accurate paint job version that nobody has on shelves anymore? And don't even get me started on "Evac" or whatever the hell the day-glo Blackout repaint is.
Now, in typical fashion, I'm going to be a hypocrite and say that the one Voyager class I would buy in a heartbeat would be Skywarp, which is pretty much a straight repaint of SS/TC.
Okay, so I did turn into a bit of a wet blanket there. How long until Classics 2.0 comes out?
