God, I want a Rampage to go with him....
So true, I hope they use HftD Brawn for him.
Looks to be the HFTD Terradive mold.
Did I miss something? Didn't he die on Earth during the end of Beast Wars? I get that Funpub fiction likes to be its own thing, but..
this was news?! I saw that card two days ago.....nerts!
While I do like that mold, I'd rather save that for Ironfist someday. Wouldn't really need a new head either.
Rampage would be best as Cybertron Menasor or Cybertron Unicon. Probably wont happen though.
Nice. Hope he comes in soon.
Hey, remember back with Reunification, when SG Alpha Trion's minions included a Transtech Blackarachnia and Nightsceam? Those guy were from an alternitive timeline, where the Great War never ended, and the Maximals and the Predacons fought for the Autobots and Decepticons. BA and NS were part of Optimus Primal's squadron, but when Rhinox and Silverbolt were killed, they killed Optimus and fled to the Predacons. Then, with Scavenger and Immorticon, they traveled into Axiom Nexus, and with SG Alpha Trions minon Topspin, who came from Jhixauses forces in the Marvel comics universe and who was secretly part of the Nexus Prime, one of the 13, and switched their bodies with the Transtechs of the same name in Axiom Nexus. The Depth Charge of that universe was tasked by the High Council to find them, and he went to Axiom Nexus too. When he saw their susposedly dead bodies, he gave up and went on the streets.
Can you tell me where you read that story? Was that in the comics or elsewhere? Thanks
It spans from Transcendent, the 2008 story in the magazine, Blackarachnia's bio in the first magazine of the 2009 story, and from the most recent magazine's Depth Charge bio.
Thanks! I'll look that up. Sounds interesting.
Yeah, this is a shorted version of the full page biography printed in the last issue of the club magazine. He's a parallel version of Beast Wars Depth Charge who got stuck on Axiom Nexus. The last we saw of him members of The Convoy had hired him to go track down Ultra Mammoth and his crew.
The two members were the Japanese G2 magna (with Junpei) Optimus Prime (or would he be called Convoy?) and Jungle Planet Cybertron Optimus Prime by the way. He was playing a card game with Prime Slipstream, Classics Breakdown, Animated Jackpot, and new Circuit. All of them are in the TFSS.
Can't wait for this guy, along with the rest of the FSS figures to ship!
Although, I wish the story behind this Depthcharge wouldn't be another typical "alternate universe" one. They could have done something along the lines of 2001 Botcon's story where the Vok sensed a great peril and brought Depthcharge back and rebuilt him with his remaining body parts and space ship and sent him to the Axiom Nexus to "find his true purpose."
Oh well, hopefully some great fan fiction can be made with him.
And I'm on the same boat as wanting a Rampage/Protoform-X! The Cybertron Unicron suggestion a few comments back would work really good.
According his bio the G2 Manga Convoy is called Optimus Prime, his nickname is Hero Optimus Prime.
Eh, your right. I just always thought when they came from Japanese originated universe, they call them by that name, like with Alteinity.
I'd go with hound with a new head for ironfist, ironfist with never that kibblely like the brawn tooling is but rampage was, the door sit kinda like his claws and even if its now shoulder mounted he dos have the 3 barreled cannon.
I think Cybertron Unicron would fit Rampage the best.
