    i dont understand, in the movie all three dreads were chevy police SUVs but then in the legion toys, one dread was a police car type thing...and one was an suv and then they jumped to a plane!...it really confused me...what about the bigger scales are they the same way or are all dreads SUVs? I ask because i really like figures to be close to screen accurate and im thinking if i should skip out on the other two legions and just get three crankcases with some modding to make them more movie acurate. Thanks!

    there's only one larger scale Dread and yeah, he's an SUV

    they probably gave the other guys their own vehicle modes cuz itd probably be a little confusing [and doesnt provide very much variation] to release 3 identical SUVs

    I'm hoping that they'll release Deluxe Crowbar as a police car like in Cyberverse, and that they'll release Deluxe Hatchet as an SUV like Crankcase.

    id love for them to release them all as Deluxe SUVs

    i find it fascinating to have 3 completely different robots be made out of the same vehicle mode

    They went for variety. The same reason behind the weaponized/plain versions of the wreckers in different size classes.

    so what would be more perferred by you guys? three SUVs or the variation? because i was to get the three SUVs and customized them to be screen accurate but i dont want to waste my money doing so when i can just get whats released...i dont mind getting police crowbar...but im unsure of hatchet really...i kinda like him better as an SUV..and it makes more sense to me...

    Same here. It's like the opposite of the G1 clones.
    If they went that route, they should package the next two in robot modes. Or maybe they'll make one voyager class and the other human alliance...

    I bought 3 deluxe Crankcases to be my Dreads: 2 in 'bot mode, 1 in SUV mode. I distinguished Crankcase by giving him a 2nd weapon. I also bought CV Hatchet, cool looking beast mode.

    I think you can do a good job on making your own hatchet out of the crankcase legion mold.
