TFClub has posted in-package images (HERE) of PCC Salvage w/ Bomb-Burst. Here's the bio:
Sweet. Now bring on Undertow's
Wow... He's the PCC answer to Animated Wreck-Gar.
What are his stats? That site won't let me do anything on the iPhone.
Clearly seems like he's supposed to be the same character as TF:TM Salvage. Neato, but I don't think it's enough to make me buy that mold again.
PCC's are their own thing. He's as much Movie Salvage as Huffer is G1 Huffer. In fact, it's something I really really like about them... they're so portable. They can belong to whatever continuity you want, or you can have them be their own thing.
I never read the bio for movie Salvage before now, but I still thought of Animated Wreck Gar first..
Seriously, though. Brought to life by the Allspark, wants to go back to the junkyard. He's intended to be the same dude.
Yep, totally this guy. Sweet!
I like the Targetmaster...er, Mini-Con. What is it, a recolor of Chainclaw?
The red doesn't work so well on the Mini-con for me, the original blue was much better.
Would have made more sense if he'd been Blowpipe being blue & all - and boy do I cringe every time Hasbro mentions The Allspark in any franchise that isn't explicitly the Movie Universe.
It spoils the fun for them to jump one way or the other I prefered it vague so the customer can deciede if they want PCC's to be Classicverse or Movieverse.
Hasbro has said that PCC is it's own little world. Huffer is based on G1 Huffer. Salvage looks like G1 Mudslinger but the bio nods Movie Salvage. Why can't different versions of characters exist in different continuities?
As for the Allspark... In Animated, the Allspark brought Wreck Gar to life. So the Allspark isn't exclusive to the movies anymore. I wouldn't be surprised if it eventually comes up in TFP.
Such as...Beast Wars? Animated?
Prime's Ratchet has actually mentioned the Allspark already, albeit as an exclamatory word.
Am I the only one seeing Energon Ironhide/Roadbuster in this guy?
