He can't be a retool of Longhaul since his vehicle mode is completely different.
Yeah, the toy will still have to be a new mould. Like Evasion Prime was an all new mould.
Once again - sadly, genius has it's limits...
Still - it'll be interesting to see how they try to replicate the shape of the LH bot mode, from the parts of that towtruck...
I don't even want to see how it happens. I'll be okay if he only lasts 2 minutes in the film.
He's a cheap copy.
I honestly don't see that. In nearly every continuity there have been different characters with the same body design. Its not like they're doing something completely unheard of just for money saving measures. Besides, he has a lot of differences as well. The claw, the giant gun, the different truck parts, he also looks slimmer.
Still disappointed that its just Long Haul with the 18 wheels on his back.
That's because even in the cartoons and the comics they give these recolors or transformers sharing the same frame time to develop or at least give them a personality. The movies hardly gave any Decepticon that wasn't Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave, Soundwave, or Barricade any lines or screentime outside of snarling and mugging for the camera before exploding into a ball of fire. Let TLK to hopefully buck that trend.
I see your point, but as a Decepticon fan I miss the unique designs.
like bonecrusher having a clone in rotf? or longhaul in dotm? or sideways, grindor/blackout, or brawl, scrapper(3 times), or devastator being a bunch of drones copying the other constructicons as well , oh i forgot, the giant ravage on cybertron at the beginning of dotm, yeah or the overly similar ancient cybertornians during the rotf where the fallen built the star harvester and killed the ancient humans? yeah, ORIGINAL DESIGNS EVERYWHERE
why does people bitch about onslaught not being one, i mean, REALLY? like if he was the FIRST one not being original, since the very first episode of transformers (generation one) to the very last day there will be reused designs, always
I'm bored so I'll tell you why.
Transformers universe has a large array of characters, that stem from the old tv shows or comics. Every character from its origins has at least a few fans.
When a character is copied it takes away it's originality. It's no longer anything special, with character or importance.
LongHaul had a name in TF2, he was part of a constructicon group and died. When you start seeing copies of the same design it takes away any personality The original character might have had. The character like many decepticons, aren't given the respect they deserve.
Nobody would like it if Bumblebee had copies roaming around, or Bumblebee with Jazz parts. That's because there are many fans of Bee.
The same goes with the Decepticons.
