    The big Decepticon symbol on the door suggests he's Slicer, but the purple Autobot symbol suggests he's SG Wheeljack, though it's possible Fan Publications couldn't afford to retool his chest to remove the Autobot logo, which would be unfortunate.

    Breakdown, huh. That's Botcon's first Movie mold they've used.

    Also - Scorponok seems to have a normal 'con sigil. So... Not SG?

    That's not for Botcon, that's the orange repaint in Hunt for the Decepticons. Name's Oil Pan :)

    It's not a BotCon toy. That's Oil Pan, from the yellow box Transformers line.

    We know. But the theory (that I spawned) was since we got the mold and colors of SG Wheeljack, and they're practically a sure thing to be packed together, that Scorponok would be SG as well. But it seems that it is Slicer and Double Punch so there goes that theory.

    That was my first thought too. For all we know, it could be a crossover; SG Wheeljack breaks into the Wings of Honor continuity, likes what he sees, brands himself Slicer. Hell, Shortpacked seems to be going with that theory, based on what today's comic implies. And, again, we know FunPub loves to repurpose their own stuff. Not that there's much point in speculating at this point, as people will have the comic in their hands in 24ish hours.


    Also, kinda odd that the vehicle mode pictures are all pretty natural looking, but the robot mode pics are washed out by the flash. But again, it doesn't really matter at this point, as people will be able to enjoy their real colors in just a day (or, in my case, a few weeks).

    Well, i've been following SGRavages tweets and he's been saying that Wheeljack has gone through a portal to another dimension and that he's going in to follow him.

    Must be SG Wheeljack who joins up with the regular version cons while Ravage ends up with Scorch and the other G2 Redux Autobots

    Agreed. His color scheme looks fantastic. Also, not matter what colors he's in, that Breakdown mold is just so cute.

    Honestly, I don't know why anyone would be confused here. Slicer's got both sigals on him so I'd be willing to wager that he's literally both characters. SG Wheeljack comes through a portal and either can't get back or decides to stick around... realizes Decepticons are evil here so he'd fit in with them... can't call himself Wheeljack for obvious reasons... and Slicer is born. It's wouldn't be the first time that FP has done a cross-dimensional story and they love to multi-purpose their own figures as well.

    Also, if that's theory is the case with Slicer/SG Wheeljack... one has to wonder if SG Ravage will rename himself Glit or something?
