    I don't have the mold, but it looks pretty neat and fits the Animated Sentinel Prime snowplow vehicle mode. If Hasbro were to recolor it, give it a new head, and include a shield and a lance (instead of the trailer), I think it would work nicely as a Classics Sentinel Prime.

    Thoughts?

    Well the mold isn't that great and it's nearly 10 years old and its last use was Botcon '09 Landshark. Even FunPub isn't using A/E/C molds anymore.

    Yeah, I think 2009 was the last time Hasbro released Unicron Trilogy molds at retail (the Superion and Bruticus ROTF boxsets). They'd never do it now.

    Also, it sounds like you might be asking for an Animated Sentinel Prime homage? If Hasbro releases a Sentinel Prime figure at all, it would probably homage the DOTM version.

    E landmine isn't far off the G1 toon sentinels colors from what I remember, so just use that, I know I do. Also Alt mode looked close.

    I would love this. I came up the idea years ago and no one really paid attention. Now that movie Sentinel is more "mainstream", I agree he'd be the one that gets homaged.

    To each his own but... I think the general opinion of the mold is actually rather positive. Landmine isn't hampered with the shirt/pants powerlinx gimmick but has his own brute-mode powerlinx combination and is quite well articulated.

    Well Unicron was re-re-released a little while ago so I'd like to see this happen!

    I always thought he'd be re-purposed as Rodimus Prime myself.

    Except for the part where the color spectrum is inverted (Landmine is orange with blue details, G1 Cartoon SP is mainly blue/turqoise with orange details), you do have a point.
