Cybertron Scouts in Generations?

Bullcrap. The Real Gear Robots and the ROTF Scouts were awesome.

Is Backstop transformed correctly on the package? His legs look sideways. Maybe he's a master of the side-step.

Yeah, If I had to classify them, I'd say that they're still "Transformers" despite being red instead of gold. I mean, I don't think anyone considers the Activators part of Generations just because of their red cards. Same for the four single-pack Mini-Cons (Although their original classification was "Generations" by some sites, I think most fans have backed off of that designation by now).
I actually understand Wreckloose and Undermine far more than Backstop. They're relatively cheap figures that still sell despite being released a bazillion times each. Why invest the time and money to redeco them at all? Family Dollar, Big Lots, and apparently even Walmart will just keep buying them anyway...

These exact releases? In the "Transformers"/"Generations" packaging? Or the ones released in Universe 2.0 packaging that each had their original decoes (including "correctly" colored keys, not the blue ones that the "Generations" ones have)?
If it's the latter instead of the former, I think pretty much everyone knows about those

Thanks to these lines I got Undermine.(Who I wanted during Cybertron but could never find him.) I also got Backstomp for $2. I still feel like I got cheated for that one. My brother had Wreakloose, so I know I'm not getting him again. Since Backstomp is repainted, I have a feeling we're going to see these toys for a long time.

I see Backstop and Wreckloose have new blue Jungle Planet Cyberkeys. Did the Cyberkeys in the Universe release have the cyber code numbers on the back, even though the hasbro web site stopped supporting these ages ago?

Backstop's bio certainly seems like a new character. Are the bios for the other two available anywhere?

Oh man. They shoulda given Undermine a classics/PCC Dinobot colorscheme....

I have seven memories of him from Cybertron. Bless you Walmart, for clearancing them out at $1.50 each (rather $3 for a 2-pack, but whatevs).
*Edit* Every time I look at this Backstop, the more I want him. Why do I actually have to like that mold despite its countless flaws!
