    Beaten by one minute! Looks a lot like Broadside.

    Was thinking the exact same thing. And given Broadside has some awesome altmodes, this could turn out pretty neat.

    Anyone got a copy of the Warbot concept art from TFcon 2009 that they can mirror at all?

    Forgot we had a third-party forum now. Thanks for the move.

    Originality is exactly why I'm more interested in the FP stuff.

    You sure? Looks a heck of a lot like G1 Broadside to me. And they've been planning him in some form since back in 2009 when we saw the lineart.

    Doesn't look enough like it for me to tell. Only similarity I really see is the chest cockpit.

    So is that Broadside? If someone still has that old image of FP Broadside could you post it here for comparison?



    -EDIT- Looks like General Tekno was on the same wave length...

    Here's the old FP concept art for Broadside for comparison - given it's mainly a silhouette I can see a LOT of similarities.

    If they go with this design, too, it's alien/different enough to not really step on Hasbro's toes. Unless, of course, you've seen an aircraft carrier that looks like that.
