    The correct answer is: All three.

    Anyone find out if Rodimus Prime's trailer does anything when NOT combined with Hot Rod? Was hoping for at least a base mode...

    Got a pretty good "Skeezball Biker" look going for EEEEEEEEEvil Rodimus - only missing a bandana as a hat.

    Windcharger... S' OK, I guess.

    Skrapnel - I'm curious if there's any deco difference. Otherwise, meh.

    Prime Masters - They look fun to mess with, though as some mentioned, a little more "Primes" as opposed to "Pretender cores" might have been welcome.

    Windcharger is decent but I'd honestly be more excited if it's pretooled for Cliffjumper. I'm fine with my RTS Windcharger

    No need for me to get the third party SG Rodimus that\'s about to come out now.  Very nice toys!  Obviously, the faux Pretenders are mot great, but I am sure bigger official/3p versions will come out later.

    Wouldn\'t it be ironic if OSKOs of the pretenders came out that were voyager sized?  We could then use them as real pretenders, maybe...

    ...you know, if PotP eventually includes magnaboss and tripredacus, the jointron brothers are pretty much an automatic takara repaint...

    I think I'll stick with RTS Windcharger; the head sculpt on this new one looks ugly and I like the flip out magnet gimmick on the RTS one.

    I'll probably pick up SG Rodimus and Skrapnel. All of the Titan Masters are easy buys, those guys look neat, although it seems like Skullgrin's weapon mode is the absolute worst so far.

    Me too. I could care less about the Primes, but I adore the Pretenders.

    I thought the fugly head was on purpose, though. Are you guys remembering a handsomer Windcharger than I am? :sly:  :lol

    They have answered this before. They wanted all three released in the current Generations line and Shrapnel was going for $50 on the secondary markets. If you don't want it, skip it. People need to stop acting like Hasbro only has them as a customer.

    I know, right! And it doesn't even fit the playstyle! No interaction with the Prime Masters at all, no remolding, no little pegs, nothing!
