    No mini-kit so far as far as I am aware. The previous ones.... well, they kind of had connections to the combiner. (Shockwave for the scene where Bruticus used him as a weapon, Grimlock for Technobots, Megatron for Devastator and Prime for playing chicken with Motormaster). Eh.... is there another transformer who really fits that bill for the Protectobots? I can't think of one, really.

    Blaster. Grimlock sent them to arrest Blaster.
    They captured him, got into a few skirmishes with the Combaticons. Defensor and Bruticus went at it and Defensor was defeated.
    Blaster took out Bruticus and saved the Protectobots lives.
    They repaid him by letting him go, even though they knew they would be punished by Grimlock.

    Ah. the Marvel G1 comic then. I don't remember much of the bits when Grimlock was in charge.

    If you're referring to Sarge, the reviews seem to be positive so far.
    If you're referring to the combined mode, it might be a little too soon to know.

    This figure is solid as a rock... as most of GT's releases are. My only complaint is the lack of paint. I can't vouch for whether a complete lack of red on his head is G1 accurate (to the toy or cartoon), but I don't like it. In other words he fits the bill, but he's lackluster looking to me.

    Sold my Guardia when I heard about this project. I think I like Guardia's Hotspot better, but other than that, these guys look better.

    It's not.

    That's G1 cartoon, G1 toy, Combiner Wars, and Unite Warriors. Not pictured would be IDW Streetwise, who also had red on his head.

    It's IDW accurate I think, but yeah I dislike his lack of paint as well.

    I might be wrong, but I think I've seen him in some IDW art somewhere where his head is all white. Take Rodimus, he sometimes looks like MMC's Calidus and sometimes like SXS depending on the artist.

    A few small appearances, do not change the fact that 95% of the time, since the very beginning, he's had red head-accents as part of his look.

    Oh don't get me wrong. i want him to have the red paint. I was just saying that I had seen him without the paint. Lack of paint is probably the number 1 reason he is not a priority for me.
