    I get that Warbot = Springer, and that SteelCore = Energon Ultra Magnus, who's Assaulter supposed to represent or homage? Sorry don't read the comics... :(

    You don't even have to read the comic books... It's Broadside, who's also a triple changer.

    Ah, okay. He was in 4 of the G1 Cartoons. I honestly didn't remember him. I do remember that his toy sucked. Looks like this one will be better. :)

    SteelCore is SteelCore, not Ultra Magnus :) 
    He's an original character, made by FP.

    Now if they reissue Steel Core at the same time it would be a party.

    Steelcore is a unique FP character NOT Energon Ultra Magnus. Just because he can pull the trailer doesn't make him the character - That's a huge stretch.

    Assaulter is Broadside, a G1 character that appeared in both the cartoon and comics.

    You need to learn yourself some Transformers :p

    Most likely because he appeared in the latter part of the series (after the movie)...

    The toy was on every catalog that came with a toy from 1986-1987...

    And store shelves...

    And a few episodes of the cartoon...

    And in UK, Dreamwave, and IDW comics...

    Maybe it's because I'm 37 and lived through G1... Absorbing every molecule of every checklist... The only things I can't name on sight are several of the 1990 Micromasters, and that's because I was in high school and boobs > transformers. :D

    Wouldn't surprise me if it's later today. Kapow is 5-8 hours ahead of those two, so if FP sent the email during the day in Japan, Kapow would get it first, then roll west across.
