    Oh that's awesome! Gotta see if I can find a Gnaw hookup for the classics collection.

    I like the mold in Gnaw colors, but I really couldn't care less about SkyByte. Such an irritating character.

    They both look pretty nice, though I'm slightly disappointed that they're putting in yet another non-G2 character into the set (in fact, neither of these guys are G2!). On the other hand, I'd saw Gnaw looks cooler than Sky-byte, so if we're getting that mold twice, then the colors are nice. Hell, this is the first time Gnaw's looked cool in any continuity :D  And unlike Streetwise and Rapido, this is a mold that I don't already have 3 of. So, it's good enough for me!


    Also, believe me or not, I was actually thinking earlier today there was a possibility they'd make Gnaw out of this mold, since Botcon normally uses more than one deluxe twice in a set, and the Prowl mold was the first, so I was considering who the 2nd could be.

    Interesting. Like the mold as Gnaw... I do appreciate it as Sky-Byte too. Character was really annoying though. Got to love the new head design though. My biggest interest at this point though... how the heck are they going to bring an RID character into what is apparently G2 fiction? Seriously... I want to see how they pull that off this year.

    Yay, Sky-Byte! Didn't think he'd have his fin-hawk given the required clearance needed to fit his head into the Sharkticon transformation, but that head looks superb!

    And Gnaw? Didn't see THAT one coming. Hello, Sharkticon Army Leader! I hope he's not the freebie and actually comes with somebody else as one of the souvenir exclusives, or doubled as an army-builder set for Sky-Byte.

    Awesome! Now all we need is to get some pre-registration going! I'm really liking the idea of Gnaw.

    Someone else posted a theory that, in FP's continuity, they could make their version of G2 a prequel to their version of RiD... for instance, the leader of this G2 set is Pyro, who's a fire truck... so he becomes Fire Convoy, maybe?

    No idea if FP will go that route, but I thought it was a good theory. I'd give credit to who came up with it, but I don't remember who XD
