    Hey guys, I got an unanswered question from Botcon, Did they show Twin Twist (the topspin repaint packed with deluxe Target Leadfoot?). If so how did he look?? I do remember someone said he looked hideous but never went into detail.

    Thanks

    I wasn't there, but it seems that either they showed the wrong picture and showed Topspin, or they accidentally called him by the wrong name.

    Hopefully it's not called Twin Twist and is virtually identical to Topspin.

    They said that he was going to be a repaint of Topspin with a different head.

    It was called Twin Twist, but what was shown looked a lot like Topspin. I can't remember specifics, attention was more on Leadfoot and it was a small picture that was shown.

    Will be getting the set regardless for Leadfoot.

    Why would I want a Topspin colored Topspin named Twin Twist? Because I'd much rather have a different deco on him so he's completely different looking from Topspin if he's going to be a different character.

    Weaponized would make sense if we assume that the HA will always be the opposite of the deluxe. Assuming this would also imply HA Topspin would be non-weaponized.

    I figured, if there's a pattern to be had here it would be with the Cyberverse figures, since for all three of them we at least know whether those will be weaponized or "clean". Based on that, where Cyberverse Roadbuster is weaponized and Cyberverse Topspin is clean, each the opposite of their respective deluxes, I'd say that since Cyberverse Leadfoot is weaponized, Deluxe Leadfoot will probably be clean. Plus, that would explain why it has to be Target-exclusive; if it weren't, they could do what they did with Cyberverse Leadfoot and Deluxe Topspin, that is, make the weapons hide the brand name and make it a mass release.

    P.S.: Is there an elegant abbreviation for "Cyberverse"? It seems odd typing the whole thing out, but the only logical one that leaps to mind is "Cyb.", which could be mistaken for "Cybertron".

    P.P.S.: Indeed, even the auto-tooltip function offers "Cybertron" as the expansion of "Cyb.".

    I will honestly be bummed if the only "teched-out" version of Leadfoot is the Legion. I am hoping/expecting a Deluxe with weapons, considering the HA is "clean" and Twin Twist will be a little weapons pack like Topspin.
