    I really love Octane...

    I like to think, that after Galvatron punished him, he self-exiled himself, got upgraded to Classics 2.0 body and undertook intensive training so that he could prove himself to the other Decepticons, whilst still plotting some kind of revenge against Starscream and Galvatron. So now he's still a bully, but a tough and detached bully.

    Anyhoo, just thought I'd make an Octane appreciation thread, what with his new toy and all...
    :D

    I am a big fan of Octane and cannot wait to get the new toy. May he be around for a long time to come.

    Too bad they decided to replace Blitzwing with Octane in those season 3 episodes. Considering the ending of FFoD part 5, it would've made more sense too, but Hasbro suddenly wanted them to do episode/s to promote the Octane toy. This is why I don't really appreciate Octane the same way I used to (because his portrayal in the cartoon was clashing with his character bio, too).

    Interestingly, Octane returns to the decepticon lines in Headmasters, but Blitzwing doesn't...

    But yeah, the original toy was awful. Can't wait for the Classics version.

    I gotta admit, Octane was one of those G1 characters who made me laugh. I didn't like his pal Sandstorm, but Octane was funny.

    This mayor may not factor into me possibly or possibly not getting Tankor.

    I see people are talking about the both Octanes (G1 and Classics), so I'll do the same.

    As for G1 Octane, to me he is the best triple changer next to Blitzwing. He would have been the best triple changer if it wasn't for all the parts changing (actually, there were just two parts, but still).

    I loved the character, because he and Blitzwing (and Swindle) weren't your regular "evil" Decepticons, but an honourable warrior and a merchant/thief for hire.

    Classics Octane has articulation, a nice plane mode (a got over the small main wings, but I still think they could have used 1 engine of appropriate size on each wing, instead of two small, almost non-existent ones) and a cool truck mode, but falls short in robot mode. I can stomach the stilt legs, but I can't get over those stupid shoulder pads. This is the impression I have so far, from looking at the available pics. Maybe I'll like him more when I see some review videos on youtube, and see how he looks in 3D.

    Man you are crazy, crazy, crazy. Octane was only marginally better than Broadside. Astrotrain in black and white is the best triple changer, followed by Blitzwing.

    Octane was always CLOSE to being good, but the arms and the parts coming off ruined it. That's why I'm so psyched for the classics version. Astrotrain was a step down, 'Tankor' will be a triumph!

    This. And as a whole, Decep triplechangers own the hell out of the Autobot ones.

    I liked Octane, he had the stones and the sense to get out of Galvatron's command. I liked his G1 toy a lot, better civilian disguise than trains and tanks could be. The Classic will give me a lot of joy.

    Octane is like, totally me in a TF body. A mischevious pervert who has grand delusions of power despite his obvious retarded awkwardness. So yeah. Really looking forward to getting the Classics toy :D

    Blitzwing had a crap plane mode! Looked like a damn sandwich.

    Astrotrain, though, mmm! You could not see a single train part in shuttle mode, and in train mode it was a steam engine with FRIGGIN AWESOME ROCKET BOOSTERS AWWW YEAH!!

    I wasn't planning to get any of the Universe line (saving for Animated), but Tankoctane looks kind of interesting.
