    The last image finally confirms that we will eventually get Blast-Off in POTP.

    Beautiful artwork, as always. Gonna wait for high-quality image without Chinese symbols to set it up as a wallpaper on my phone. *__*

    I'm surprised that the artwork doesn't show any sign of the Megatronus stuff that comes with Blast-Off. You'd think they would at least have something along the lines of Megatronus being the only symbol or something.

    Ok, Blast Off is definitely coming. Be interesting to see if he's an exclusive or what.

    The TR Arcee & Grotusque art didn't show their bonus titan masters. This is the artwork that will show up on BO's collector card.

    I mean, if he's packed with a special Megatronus it almost has to be.

    Meanwhile, that sound you hear is the bottom falling out of the secondary market for UW Bruticus. Especially parted out Blast-Offs.

    Okay, so...now that we have a confirmed UW Blast-Off release....I'm starting to think the odds of UW Ratchet joining him can't be far behind.

    So let's revisit this image..
    [​IMG]

    We know PotP Inferno is coming. There's rumors of a Walgreens Wreck-Gar.

    There's a number of users who wondered out loud if G2 Defensor was planned and then scrapped later. What if they were right?

    Inferno is the red fire truck. Wreck-Gar is our orange motorcycle. And now Hasbro brings over UW Ratchet as our new ambulance.

    What of the purple helicopter and black police car?

    Well, Hasbro doesn't seem to mind if torso's don't have a full set of limbs this time around (Elita, Starscream, Inferno...) So what if they repurpose the purple helicopter as Airachnid and the black police car as Barricade?

    Voila, all 5 components of G2 Defensor can now flesh out the late waves of PotP with some new characters even if they're in older molds.

    He's been and gone from most retailers for some time. eBay is your best bet.

    Two more Decepticon lives would give enough for Starscream to have his own set.

    But if I we're making the wish list that black car would be G2 Sideswipe.

    That's kind of the point. You can use the two new Decepticons as intended, or you can go with the fan-wank and build a G2 Defensor.

    I'm really excited that UW Blast-Off is getting released in POTP, but at the same time I'm kicking myself for not buying CW Vortex.

    I\'m overjoyed that UW Blast Off is finally getting a domestic release, but I can\'t tell what his deco is going for. The art makes it look like simplified cartoon colours, but then again packaging art isn\'t always consistent with the associated toy (TR Misfire for example).
