    Agreed that I hope they are planning a stealthy way to release G2 Defensor. Excited about this repaint, too. It means the jet version can join Modulus or Galvatronus or....

    Oh, looks like toy colors like I\'d hoped!  Hopefully he uses the Shuttler assemblage or at least has a purple back so I can reassemble him myself.

    Wasn't there a brown animation error Seeker - perhaps Blast-Off's Jet mode can be repurposed as a Military seeker limb for Starscream.

    I would like Blast-Off to come with his original Limb - though I'd reluctantly understand if he comes with a POTP one instead.

    I'd actually really like it if they just keep making Special character packs = but if the do I would prefer if they went back to doing 2 packs as those are better value for money - and then it allows random stand alones to get released that it would be nice to have (either slightly tweaked to fit POTP or still in Combiner Wars specs) The typical examples would be :

    Silverstreak
    Exhaust
    Sideswipe
    Hoist
    Grapple
    Slicer (other other Wheeljack repaint)
    G2 Off Road
    G2 Alpha Bravo
    G2 Jazz or Ricochet/Stepper
    Ratchet perhaps one with a lot more red on him or a yellow one or even as a Rescue Bot inspired green and white 'Medix'

    Oh, I meant that if the UW Blastoff is heading to US retail, there's hope for UW Nosecone and UW Lightspeed. It would make sense. After all, Voyager Scattershot never got the rest of his team as individuals.

    It's cool that Blast Off is finally coming stateside, but I'll probably stick with the jet version of him. I know that's basically treason around here, but I feel like a jet fits in better than a space shuttle.

    At least the colors here look far superior to those of the Takara version. I might get this, but I would need a bit more incentive because I already have a Blast Off who has served me well since its purchase and the chest was quite unfortunate on the Unite Warriors toy.

    I\'ll get the shuttle just because I REALLY don\'t like the arielbot mold they used for the original. Not that bothered with the jet idea, just really don\'t like that mold.

    I never really had an issue with Hasbro's Blast off but I'd still buy Takara's version if they do release him in the US. I did buy Takara's Technobot set day one though.

    I feel kinda bad for everyone getting excited for Blast Off...
    IMO, that’s the weakest deluxe from the entire CW line.

    Sweet, I\'m hoping he has the Movor style chest instead of the beer gut the Takara Blastoff had.

    I was thinking more about the paint; the chest having purple on it like the G1 toy.
