So Toyfair 2010 is winding down and Hasbro has shown their cards and it's a royal flush....... but now it's time to speculate on an overlooked matter. The names that were registered. People always wonder sometimes why we get stuff like Nightbeat 7 or an RID Bludgeon. Hasbro does it to get the name in their possession for one day, to use it for a GREAT toy or proper homage. With that said, this year's Toy Fair brought back some old unlicensed names. Who knows what the future will bring for: - Sandstorm (who we have not had since 1999 for the Botcon toy) What does it mean: Possible Universe 3.0 Triplechanger one day? - Hubcap (Not used since Machine Wars of 1996) What does it mean: Maybe we will get a G1 nod toy in the future. - Huffer (Not registered since 1984, Botcon actually didn't register his name for his 2007 toy) What does it mean: Hopefully a new mold for the minibot in Universe 3.0 form. - Searchlight (Not used and registered since 1987) What does it mean: Don't get your hopes up for a Throttlebot homage, this will be a name drop for years to come. - Icepick (Monster Pretender last used in 1989) What does it mean: No doubt will be used for Arctic alt modes to come, I don't see a Pretender homage anytime soon. - Chainclaw (Animal Pretender not used since 1988) What does it mean: Well like I said with Icepick... a pretender homage.... doubt it. - Leadfoot (F1 racer not used since G2 of 1994) What does it mean: Props to you Hasbro for making this toy an F1 racer again, I am super happy, let's hope it's a nod to the G2 toy. - Bombshock (Micromaster green tank from 1990) What does it mean: Don't get your Onslaught hate on, do you research, he was a green tank, so this is a nice homage to the Micromaster of yesteryear. Also some of his drone (albeit color) bare a similar resemblance to Growl and Dropshot, his Micromaster 4-pack brothers. - Sledge (Micromaster 2-combiner toy from back in 1991) What does it mean: Doubt we will get a Micromaster homage, it's also a shame his Minicon is not "Hammer" like his Micromaster partner back in 1991. But he is a construction vehicle. - Double Clutch (Originally F1 Gobot from G2 circa 1995) What does it mean: Eh......... maybe they will attach it to a F1 toy in the future, but that's what Mirage is for..... he will be a name drop for TF cars to come. - Mudslinger (Originally an Autobot Micromaster Bigfoot from 1989) What does it mean: Well Hasbro gave us the Bigfoot look back, just now he is green and a Decepticon. Props for trying anyhow ^_^ So what do you think?
