    These sound nice. I like both molds, so I'm excited to see what they look like.

    What colors is Armada Blurr?

    Wheeljack sounds like it's a throwback to his G1 colors.

    I wonder if it's a new head mold on Armada Blurr or if it's just the head mold that he gained for Cybertron? I'm beating that, since we've already seen two head molds (and Megatron's supposed to have a new head) that this is just the Cybertron version of Blurr.

    Armada Wheeljack sounds horrible in those colors and certainly doesn't make me think of Sideswipe.

    Ugh...

    Thought so, now my question is does he mean the Armada Sideswipe mold is Wheeljack, or the Armada Wheeljack mold is Sideswipe? That changes the Lame factor for that figure drastically.:lol

    Cool, so Armada Wheeljack finally gets reused and into Sideswipe where he was always meant to be someday. I'm curious, is this Armada Blurr with a new head, OR a repaint of the Cybertron remold?

    I'm starting to get concerned here, where's all the Decepticons? So far the only ones we know are Starscream, Razorclaw, and the rumored Megatron.

    I'd say it has to be the Armada Wheeljack mold. Surely they'd know not to use the Armada Sideswipe mold. Not to mention, Wheeljack with his scarred symbol - how could you NOT use this mold for this set?

    My thoughts exactly. I REALLY hope they use the Wheeljack mold and not the Sideswipe mold.

    Wheeljack -> Sideswipe = Possibly cool.
    Sideswipe -> Wheeljack = Pissably lame.

    Regardless, it looks like I'll be keeping Optimus, Grimlock, and Starscream from the set, nabbing the Megatron/Rodimus pack and passing/selling off the rest.

    Well... in this case, wouldn't Wheeljack (or Sideswipe, or whoever he is) actually BE a Decepticon? Or at least an Autobot-turned-Decepticon? :) 

    I have mixed feelings about the use of these molds. Wheeljack could be great, but I'm not fond of the Blurr mold. All that car-trunk hanging off the back...

    Boy, if last year's set was airplane-centric, this year's is really automobile-centric, eh?
