I have no idea who it could be...who else could you guys imagine being used with this mold?
Alot of speculation has gone on in other threads. My money's on Crosshairs.
Some have suggested Gears.
I would love to see both of these. Crosshairs needs a Targetmaster though. The lack of Fracus is one of the only things about the Generations Scourge that irks me.
Agreed, though a member on the boards has some Shapeways TMs whipped up. If they had a less porous material, I'd snap that shit up.
hmmm,im getting a good hunch its going to be swerve,you can tell why.
The full form of the gun that comes with him looks like Fracas' weapon mode, though. Which in a way is worse, I guess. If they weren't going to give him an actual Fracas it should have just been his laser blaster (I would prefer that over Fracas in any case due to the fact that the Sweeps aren't Targetmasters, only Scourge is.). Still, you could probably make a Fracas out of what he comes with.
As for the new head in Kup's instructions, it could be Crosshairs. Or it could be Gears, or even Orion Pax. I haven't seen the instructions, so I'm just guessing.
Well they did once redeco g1 kup into orion pax. so it is possible! Maybe even a dion.
I would like to see Trailbreaker. You could easily attach a cab over the truck bed with the connection spots on the roof. Unfold some weapons from the cab attach it to his back, and there is his force field generator and shoulder canons. Sure, it may not look perfect in robot mode, but I could see it.
please no trailbreaker, the legends shouldn't be more accurate than the deluxe
I'm calling Huffer.
I think it could be Orion after looking at it again. who knows though.
The new head is vaguely Gears-ish; a future Gears repaint seems like a possibility. I think the closest head match that was found was Alternators Swerve, which strongly suggests a red repaint named Swerve.
I suspect we'll see whatever Hasbro has planned for the figures with new heads (Terradive, Tomahawk, Thunderwing, Kup, Scourge) at BotCon. Given the lack of leaked pictures, however, I don't think we'll be seeing them at retail any time soon. Maybe somewhere around August? While the Generations line will continue through 2011, it does appear to be taking a break for the DOTM line launch.
Looks more like Orion or Huffer than Gears to me.
Please let it be Gears, my all time favorite minibot
If you shrunk G1 Gears' head into having normal proportions I can see it looking like that head in the instructions. I can also definitely see the connections to the Alt. Swerve head as well. I wouldn't say no to Crosshairs either. I have my fingers crossed for Gears though.
I hope it's Orion Pax.
