    As originally discovered by stunticon of the 2005 boards.

    We already knew that a Scourge repaint would be coming, and apparently HAsbro were tossing around the name "Cryo Scourge" at last year's BotCon. Looks like the name's been confirmed now, sort of.

    I did some digging around and found more new "hidden" website listings:

    Quickmix with stripmine
    "Cybertron Primus"
    "leader Class FIgure" (Metroplex? Optimus Prime repaint?)
    Menasor
    Nemesis (Breaker?)
    Skywarp
    Repugnus
    Shortround
    Attacktix starter set?

    Another mystery entry:

    Landslide

    I previously saw that name in a Chinese listing P.Prime showed me. Supposedly a Voyager. Mudflap repaint?

    Just as long as these don't interfere with shelf space for upcoming Alts, the remaining new Cybertron molds, BWX, the Classics or the 6" Titaniums, I don't care what they repaint. Except Armada Laserbeak. Save that one for a TFCC club exclusive. :lol

    Well lets hope Mudflap doesn't get a repaint ...crips that things doing a serious E. Ironhide impression.

    Now if they would release a remold, say that looked like a certian stop light then maybe.

    Landslide? What a kickass name! If it IS a Voyager, a Mudflap repaint would be your best bet. If not, it could be anything...

    Cryo Scourge is also a cool name. I'm hoping for something really excellent, as Scourge would look beautiful in "cool" colours like blue, white... (similar to the Sky Lynx thingy in Japan).

    That's why they're called "placeholder pages".

    You know, I'll point out that calling them "placeholder pages" was nowhere in your original post. Just a reference to "hidden listings."

    If you're going to sass, at least have the courtesy to use the same source material you've provided. Not all of us are going to automatically go "Oh, yeah, right! Placeholder pages. I know this deal, of course."

    ^ Fair point, but I'm not sure Nevermore really meant to "sass" but who knows.

    Let's all be friends :eek:

    How can you tell what they are "placeholding" for? They all look exactly the same to me.

    I can't believe there still hasn't been any mention of a Voyager class Starscream.

    Or has there?

    Lucky Draw Skylynk? I hope not. I was not impressed with that at all. Let's just stick with something similar to the Cryotek repaint from RiD.

    I am thinking its a RID SCourge based repaint of cybertron scourge. If they retool it to have swivel wrists, that would be awesome.

    Either way I think it would be an appealing color scheme, it'll bring out some fine details in the mold.

    I like how as soon as we hear about a repaint everyone immediately assumes it might be the one they did in Japan as lucky draw. That happens so rarely and only to popular recolors like Black Convoy and Hot Rod. This happened with Ransack GT as well and it's not even close to the police deco on his japanese exclusive.
