    EDIT -

    Some people thought I was wrong about this based on a pixelated silhouette, but here he is!

    From a teaser image for an upcoming show. The side silhouettes are clearly G1 Sludge and Slag from the G1 box art.

    Did there need to be three separate threads with the same silhouette picture?

    I really cant tell that one is sludge. Only a potential Slag. Not sure how you guys can tell.

    It looks to be in a very similar pose to the old G1 box art.

    Left one is a silhouette of the G1 box art exactly.

    The secret is not looking at the figure but at the spaces between the figure. Look at the gaps where the figure is not there, between the legs, for instance. All the box art is standing in slightly different poses. This one is standing just like Sludge.

    Thanks for posting the original art; it makes it more obvious.

    So the full reveal is October 1st or 2nd?

    I like that they are making them in a size classes.

    For Primax Sludge toy we have 11 choices:

    Legends - Justitoys Jungle Warrior, KFC Sludge cassette
    Scout - DX9 not-Sludge, Iron Factory Siegehammer
    Deluxe - Jin Jiang Toys Lei Long (aka Star Rescue Team Dinobots)
    Voyager - FansProject Columpio, Toyworld Muddy
    Ultra - GCreation Thunderous
    Leader - FansToys Stomp, Mecha Form Gunk
    Supreme - Giga Power Graviter

    Technically a lot of people count Planet X Neptune too, although he's not a Primax universal cluster Sludge. I think it's fine since the authors of War for Cybertron CLEARLY though it was a G1 universe too. It was bosses at Hasbro show shoehorned it into a prequal for Transformers: Prime.

    Meanwhile HasTak has only made TWO Primax Sludge toyd (and one Viron toy) in 30 years. The G1 toy, and that repaint of the Age of Extinction toy that was officially Primax. Weird huh?

    Glad this will be legend scaled. Hopefully we get a close up pick before the weekend is over. Looks the dinobots will be released after Orion Pax. According to an earlier reveal a Seeker was next in the WIP line, I wonder if Orion Pax will be paired with Starscream.

    Good. I'll get this one too.

    Hopefully a two pack with Snarl and my Dinobots will be complete - having GT's kit G1 Grimlock I don't need another one.
