The Terror Drome reports of some information gleaned from overseas auctions indicates that many of the recent revealed repaints are of Toys “R” Us exclusive 3-Packs.  Keep in mind that this is merely rumor so far, and is not the least bit confirmed, but there are a round number of figures that fit that theme.  The rumored figures are as follows:

  • Grunt (Woodland camo repaint of Wave 1 Zartan)
  • Sgt. Stone (Green repaint)
  • Destro (Blue and red repaint)
  • Elite Viper
  • Neo-Viper (Blue repaint)
  • Speed Metal (Accelerator Suit guy with Serpentor head)

I must say, if this news is true, I’m happy to hear it.  With the rash of revealed repaints, I was pretty worried that the main line might get heavily diluted with minor color changes that meant little or nothing to the plot, but I’m happy to see these being relagated to exclusives.  It’s also pretty neat to see a couple of new characters mixed in here like Grunt, Speed Metal, and Elite-Viper.  A good thing for TRU, but also good for the collectors who want to keep the main line for the original stuff.  Check out the recent images mirrored below.  I’ve also included some past pics that are of higher quality, just to give a good reference point.

Thanks again to WildWeasel from The Terror Drome for the scoop.
