    From the TFClub weibo page. Possibly a torso for the Iron Army?

    Some WWII British half track?

    This would be the first 3PTF five-piece gestalt that is all original characters, right?

    That, for a silhouette, looks sick.

    They are making the core bot. It is only logical. Easy sales for TFC.

    Cool.
    Looks like it will be a half track.
    I guess it will be British, since the other ones they did were Japanese, American, German and Russian. Seems like the big WW2 player thats missing would be the brittish.

    Considering I only display my Iron Army in their bot modes despite having Heavy Tread and Bombshock to hand, I really could go for a properly styled leader for the group.

    Would make sense given the G1 episode... after all, they were junker WW I/II vehicles that suddenly transformed into more modern war machines... and a space shuttle.

    Swindle is the only one that sort of doesn't fit... as his vehicle's always been that jeep. But Brawl's was an older tank, Blast-Off and Vortex were WW planes of some sort, and it looks like Onslaught was a Half Track or an old truck...

    [​IMG]

    I guess they must've heard folks mentioning how odd it was to have these guys stand with the much more modern PCC figures... and those that well, just avoided PCC altogether wanting a core bot of sorts. *shrug*

    Also... google image search yielded this when I put "British Half Track" enjoy..

    On a somewhat related note... RTS Lugnut's a bomber... and G1 Blast Off was made from a bomber... what a strange repaint/kitbash that would be! LOL

    Nice. Still have both sets of limbs in my POL. :(  Can't wait to get them, and I'm glad they did this to finish off a whole bot. Will preorder.
