    ok now that we got Smokescreen in TF: Prime do you think we are going to get a toy for him or not. I have my doubts because there haven't been any news for a toy besides Japan retool of Knock out. And even if there is it could get cancelled like Breakdown which was bull crap. What do you guys think

    I'm going to be wishful here and say that Hasbro will release their own, unique mould, version of Smokescreen.

    I don't even get how Knockout can be made to be Smokescreen. KO's arms are made from his doors where as Smokescreen's doors become back wings.

    I will wait to see how this turns out but so far all I see is fail.

    Mold changes a la Jet Vehicon. I can see Takara making some engineering changes to better match the Smokescreen CGI design. If it is just a straight KO redeco with a different head and AM partner, the rage would be funny to see. XD

    Aside from the FUN gold from Takara, the anawer is probably no.

    If it's an exclusive to Takara, I don't think it's gonna be released in America. :(

    Jet Vehicon merely added wings to a car. This thing will somehow have to change KO's arms completely or add feaux doors.

    I hope for a win but I can only imagine a loss. This is a case where it would be nice to see Hasbro moulds only, just like we are getting a bunch of Takara only moulds.

    Very close chest to knockout model
    Wheels are in same place as knockout model
    Head shape is kinda the same shape as knockouts so I guess its easier to make a remold rather than a brand new one

    Knockouts wheels are on his black like Smokescreens doors. Smokescreen has the same shoulder/wheel thing going on as Bumblebee.

    Not sayign it can't work as a remould but that is goign to be one extensive remould.

    I'm with you on this. If only because Hasbro can totally make back the money in repaints/retools. We eat the Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen releases up.
