The only good one was the Blackconvoy/scourge repaint - everyone after that was too much.
Yeah that always annoys me. Use the damn Blentron symbol. It’s canon! Have Minicons had their own symbol used since AEC?
They did for the Generations Assualt team, but we also got 2 Maximals, two Predacons, and a Vehicon around that time.
I'm happy too as it puts him more in line with this guy:
Yeah, we really only know what is in waves 1-3. But we know there'll be at least a wave 4, possibly wave 5. Still holding out hope against hope for Star Saber or a heavily retooled OP into Ultra Magnus.
I think I’d rather have Star Saber and have him retooled into Thunderwing. Though if the last leader has to be a repaint of Optimus, I’d like to get a proper Nemesis Prime. If it’s going to be UM though, all you would really need to do is retool the combine chest and head, and the paint Orion as Minimus Ambus with a new head.
Why would this toy have the shattered glass logo? The toy isn’t part of the shattered glass story where the autobots are bad, it’s part of the regular toyline story with Rodimus being turned bad by the Matrix of Chaos.
I'd rather have a proper white Prime as the smaller bot. CW already did Minimus.
Well they aren’t going to make an entire new mold just for white Magnus, and Minimus Ambus fits the bill.
Actually, I honestly have started calling the white cab Ambus, because it really fits in a weird way.
You don't know that
I wouldn't be so sure that they won't make a new Ultra Magnus either: they've had a new Rodimus toy in each of the three "Prime Wars" toylines (and four total figures, only rivaled by Optimus Prime's seven) and even Brawn has gotten two toys. Ultra Magnus does, afterall fit the Leader classes themes and seeing as us IDW fans have already gotten the stellar CW Ultra Magnus it seems fair that they do a White Optimus toy for the fabs of that iteration.
Honestly, I don't mind the lack of SG Autobot logos. He has the face, and we can get SG logos through ToyHax.
He'll look amazing next to his former self.
If it's a retooling of Optimus, I would bet this is exactly what they'll do.
If they did, it'd be a sale lost from me. I already own an IDW Ultra Magnus. I don't need a second one.
But I'd be VERY surprised if they did. Hasbro's design team has been "G1 ULTRA" lately, with only a minimum of IDW influence. (see PotP Tailgate)
Maybe, but they're still the same team that goes for retooling and reuse over completely new molds, and there's not much else that can be done with reusing Orion Pax other than another humanoid shaped bot like Minimus. So as long they stick to making him out of Evolution Optimus, I imagine they'll go path of least resistance and focus the retooling on the cab and big bot body with some new arms rather than beef up the smaller bot.
All I know is that with that face, Rodimus Unicronus looks like the TF version of the Village People. P-O-T-P...it's fun to be a leader in the P-O-T-P...
Is it odd that we haven’t had a second sighting of this guy yet?
I’m wondering if this was something of a mistake. A few of them got shipped out instead of the normal Wave 1 case assortment.
Wave 3 needs to hurry up and come
My thoughts exactly! Furthermore, there aren’t a lot of listings burning up eBay. Just the same one from Kansas ending in 9 hours!
