    Surprisingly easy to remove the old wings, I just shaved down the inside hinge with a pair of wire cutters, once the metal is exposed they can just pop off, the pin can then be gripped and slid out. Minimal damage to the wing and arguably can be reused.

    Nope,nothing yet,I decided to go a head just buy UW Bruticus last month and Im super happy with him. If BO does get released,great put me down for a 2nd one,heck I would love to see a G2 version to with my G2 CW set too,theres still time to announce one if they decided to do it. I know the want is still there for one.

    Man this time two years ago we were all hyped up getting deadend and slingshot...which came with a fair amount of drama. A year ago it was then time for the Groove hype...which had its own bit of debacle.

    Sad no Mayhem this year. Not even for Titans Return. I'm curious if it was a bust from the retailers or hasbro's POV

    That actually looks pretty damn good, after the weird-ass Thunderwing last year I'm glad to see they made this one work somewhat.

    They look good on their own but the combined mode isn't wowing me. I think I will swap the teams out and make another of my own combiners, to be fair I have done that with most of the non G1 figures.

    I really like the idea of Impactor not using an HFG for his combiner extremity and I adore that Diaclone-esque Blue!Bluestreak, but I'm also in the pool of "The bots are more impressive to me than the gestalt"

    I'm certainly hoping for a May Mayhem Shuttle Blast Off(preferably in more toy-oriented colours), but whether that happens or not, I was in the mood to whip up some relatively poor quality quick images of what I think it might look like.

    Here with the colours I tried to replicate.

    And here in both shuttle packpack and shuttle brassiere configurations.

    I think the Titans Return boxsets replaced May Mayhem somewhat, in that May Mayhem was retailer-exclusive toys and so are the TR boxsets.

    I finally just finished off the upgrade sets for my CW. The jet BO is the only thing that still bothers me.

    I wish Machine Boy would've done a 1:1 KO.

    Why Hasbro hasn't done a single-pack release of shuttle Blast-Off is beyond me. The mold is literally already 100% created. No additional work needs to be done. Ok, maybe just some box/ card art. What a wasted opportunity. Makes me pissed That my Bruticus is forever going to be only IDW-accurate and never G1 accurate.
