    Orion pax is pretty obscure but that has not stopped them so far so it could work.

    Yeah, there's an Encore or Ehobby G1 edition of Kup repainted as Orion Pax (with Wheelie repainted as Dion, I believe).

    It would make a once-done repaint a semi-official obligation.

    i'd see it for botcon or club exclusive, or even a store exclusive, but i don't see them repainting it to such an odd character. and personally i'd prefer it being repainted to something more like g1 crosshairs, or even a micromaster.

    but my number one choice would still be for it to be cross hairs. would be nice to see all the targetmasters! *even if we do not have the targetmasters included* lol

    This is pretty much what I was thinking! I couldn't have predicted a Straxus toy, or updates of Thunderwing and Skullgrin, so I wouldn't call anybody 'too obscure' after those. :)

    Given Orion Pax IS Optimus Prime, I wouldn't say he's too obscure.

    True i just think of the fact that it was 1 episode of g1 cartoon that he was IIRC not sure about comics though. But since Straxus was in 2 issues i remember reading and got a toy its not out of the question to see an orion pax.

    See here's the thing....

    If you look at the rough sketch in the directions, which I know I saw posted here at some point or another, it's a rough enough drawing that you could take it as a head for Gears, Brawn, or Orion Pax from where I sit....and given the afore mentioned previous repaint, I figured that homage wasn't that far out of the realm of decency.

    That said, I could see this mold as any of the ones I mentioned and I think it would make a GREAT Crosshairs. I, too, would like to see all the Targetmasters. I'm thinking of picking up some of those after market ones I've been seeing to use with Scourge, Kup, etc.

    Also, I think with a new headsculpt and some other minor retooling, Thunderwing could easilly be Triggerhappy and Slugslinger....with the target master clipping on where the current 'drone' part is. Just sayin'.

    Sure I guess it could be Pax, who ever it is does not matter to me as I don't plan on buying it. Wreakgar is the only remold I will be getting so far of all the new heads revealed.

    Orion would be an instant buy for me......

    'Course I'd love all the other possibilities I mentioned....AND I'd like to get the Wreck-Gar repaint.
