    Hello everyone!

    On the Club website in the Club members forums, under the News area, a preview has been posted for the next issue of the Club comic, which will apparently feature Metalhawk as a character! The preview image shows him standing with Landshark and Thunderclash!

    There is no other information provided, other than this will be from the upcoming Club comic.

    I wish I knew. :(  Like I said in the first post, no other information was provided, other than the picture is from the upcoming Club magazine issue.

    I'd like to see him get a toy, since this year's slots are filled, maybe for next year?

    My apologies, I should have clarified. The preview is in the Club forums, under the News area. I've updated the first post to reflect this. :)

    I REALLY want a Classics style Metalhawk figure. He was great in Masterforce. Unfortunately, he looks like his G1 self, so probably isn't getting a toy...

    Botcon figure hint maybe?

    I'm not a Metalhawk fan so this wouldn't really plus me at all.

    Seems like they could easily remold Classics Starscream with a new head as the free toy for next year.

    Also, Pete said the SG Universe is far from gone. I'm really hoping they do a recolor of Cyb. Evac as Galvatron (with SG Decepticon Planet Key) as an exclusive next year.

    All you can see is his head, left shoulder and partial chest. Just from that, he looks very G1, and not based on a new figure.

    I would say the closest mold would be Classics Cyclonus as far as the body type. But seeing as how we are getting SG Cyclonus already I'm most likely wrong...
    Nice to see him though!

    this will be like OMEGA DOOM...here is a picture of him in a club comic....but we have no idea when or where he will get turned into a TF figure...check back in a couple of years....

    That shit made me angry...the one club figure that actually interests me in actively throwing a decent amount of money on and now there is no plan or timeline to change him into a actual TF figure/toy....

    I'd say he looks more akin to a Seeker jet.

    Or a possible Top Spin repaint. :D

    Based on the fact that he looks VERY G1, I'm disappointed that there's no future prospect of a Classics style Metalhawk, but at least he's not a tease of something that could be but never get like Shattered Glass Omega Doom, Soundwave, and Galvatron.

    Of course, I still want a modern toy for Metalhawk, and the club is our only hope.
