    I hope that's not a hint at a Cybertron Landmine repaint (again).

    Isn't it kind of ironic given this year's theme is supposed to be Shattered Glass vs Classics-verse, we're getting non-Classics versions of Jazz, Wheeljack, Warpath and Tracks in the comic:p

    Yay for Double Targetmasters.

    Love to see less used guys like that get some spotlight.


    -ZacWilliam, as long as they aren't there just for body count of course.

    Well, I think the character choice is pretty obviously quite deliberate - good odds on them getting blown up in the course of the story and rebuilt in their RTS/Generations bodies.

    Very interesting. Wonder if perhaps like above said, they will be redone into their ClassicRTS bodies after some event..

    Wait a minute.... ain't that Marlboor Wheeljack?

    Anyhow shame they didn't put the red on Metalhawk's fin like it was rumored.

    I'd buy that! I like that mold. Landmine is my classics Scoop, colors be damned.

    I'm not saying it wouldn't be an appropriate mold for Scoop. I'm just saying, I hate Cybertron keys...

    Using Landmine for Scoop would be a bit lazy as they re-purposed Grindcore, a Landmine redeco as SG Scoop.

    I'm hoping that if we do get one Double Targetmaster that maybe those rumors of a Spinister are true too, and we'd get one for each faction.

    Knowing my luck, the one figure I would possibly be interested in getting (Scoop) would end up being the freebie, meaning it'll go for crazy aftermarket prices.

    Why are they using the cartoon models for Wheeljack, Tracks, Jazz, and Warpath? This is supposed to be Classicsverse.

    Were the Marvel comics models markedly different?

    Looks like Targetmaster Scoop is going to be one of the exclusives this time around.
    I wonder how they are going to get the target master action going?

    actually that's wheeljacks marvel colour scheme as opposed to the cartoon.
