United Wheeljack, Rumble/Frenzy, Scourge, and G2 Optimus Prime

Big Bad Toy Store has images for all 22 known Transformers: United (Generations/Reveal the Shield in the U.S.) figures, including those that have not yet been seen until now. The newest ones are Wheeljack (prototype image only), Rumble/Frenzy, Scourge, and G2 Optimus Prime.

Wheeljack is a retool of Tracks, complete with a new head, new feet, and a slightly different robot mode transformation (a la Universe Sunstreaker/Sideswipe).

Rumble/Frenzy (only the blue one is shown) becomes a tank and his arms seem like they could have a pile driver feature built into each somehow.

Scourge is the same as we saw him at BotCon and Comic-Con. Though, notice his red fingers!

G2 Optimus Prime is beautiful beyond words. His truck windows do become is robot mode chest, while still evoking his G2 figure quite nicely. He also comes with a sword, though it looks a little different from its G2 version.

I simply LOVE how the term "repaint" no longer implies a simple colour swap - Wheeljack is bought on sight!

Rumble/Frenzy looks good - means I won't have to shell out for the Shadow Warrior repaints to have some updated "cassette bots"

As much as I'm a fan of the character, Scourge looks the weakest of all these. His pissy little back wings are just poor - would have much rather see something closer to the Titanium look.

Gotta say, I'm impressed with how much effort Hasbro are going to with fan service of late. I almost don't want TF3 to come out so we can continue getting these great homages!

"Repaint" still means "change of paint color" (while "Redeco" means "change of plastic color"). Wheeljack is "retool" (A.K.A. "remold"), a change in plastic sculpt.

Scourge looks kind of ugly. But if i'm not mistaken he at least has a targetmaster partner (and if that's true the partner better be interchangable with universe Nightstick.) I might get him just to go with cyclonus but if not at least I have the botcon version (which looks much nicer including colorwise). G2 prime looks kick@$$ though.
Btw Saber, Repaint in practical terms gets used interchangebly with Recolor, but essentially I think you're more correct formally. Retool according to wiki is not exactly remold, but remold is the term they use on so I go with that one.
