    Any ideas on what the Scourge retool on his instructions could be? It looks to me like maybe cybertronian starscream??

    The most prevalent guesses were IDW Senator Ratbat and Leozack.

    I would love a new Ratbat out of Scourge. Though if it isn't the Sideways redeco is good enough.

    I think that Ratbat is the most likely option, as Leozack would be too close to Scourge's deco. I think Sideways would have been a cool repaint option. Storm Jet or Jhiaxus would be been interesting, but unlikely.

    However, I have to say that my absolute favorite repaint option would be Dark Scream. Unlikely, but would be epic, and an instant buy if it ever happened.

    Probably Ratbat but I am hopeing for Leozack.
    Even if it is Ratbat maybe we get a straight up repaint into Leozack some time down the road, Id be fine with that.

    Its Going to be Ratbat or Leozack,they are popular Choices... though ill be surprised if its Rescue force Jet. then again Jet should be a two-deluxe Battle in a box-esque two pack.

    I can see Leozak being a possibility, because Hasbro are definitely looking to Japan's line for their releases with the proposed Black Shadow.

    So here is a thought. What if it is Rescue Force Leozak? The red and white version that only made it to Europe, Canada and Australia in 1991-2? That would get around the colours issue.

    Of course, Leozak himself could be taking some artistic liberty - grey body not blue, with more blue on the wings tapering to grey in the middle - so he effectively has a grey stripe down the middle of the jet mode. It'd be the robot mode in more or less the original toy colours, and a different visual on the jet.


    That being said, a Ratbat would be very nice and I'd almost certainly decide to buy whichever it is if those are my options.

    Hopefully Leozack. A humanoid Ratbat just doesn't do it for me.

    Leozack or Lyzack definitely. That's their helmet design.

    senator ratbat imo, the single visor instead of eyes on the helmet kinda gives it away, hoping someone can figure out a decent bat mode to display him in

    Wrong. That's Leozack's head. See the mane details on his outer helmet, and the lion's ears? The "single visor" you see is actually a detail on the outer helmet. The actual face has two separate eyes. It's either Leozack or his sister Lyzack.

    The Leozack does look neat, have no clue on some of the Japanese characters.

    It looks like it would work, some of these molds even with different heads are so distinct it would be hard to pull them off as someone else.

    As far as Ratbat goes, I'm completely happy with the Universe 2.0 Ratbat toy.

    I'd like to see something more along the lines of Leozack.

    The head in the artwork doesn't really match, but I could see them doing a Cybertron Bumblebee from More Than Meets the Eye at some point.
