    Love to see the Prime Thundertron toy. cross over into the Generations toy line.

    Thundertron can get revamped. Into Generations G-1 Razorclaw. Generations Beast Wars II Lio Convoy.

    Seems like a distinct possibility to me as well.

    I wondered the same, though a non-pegleg on the sprue would be a definite prerequisite...

    TBF, I was planning to repurpose him as White Leo anyhow!

    I believe he comes with interchangeable leg pieces, so that even the normal figure will have a non-peg leg option. Can someone back me up on this?

    Anyhow, yeah, I think a Razorclaw (or even Steeljaw) repaint is a distinct possibility.

    I thought you meant as himself since the pretty much canonized him in the novels.
    Everytime I see his alt mode I see steeljaw.

    I'm not sure if that would be awful or awesome.

    That's my understanding. Peg-leg is merely a flip-down alternate transformation. A Symmetrical legged configuartion is a standard option.

    Yes, he comes with a foot that you can plug onto his... peg. You can see it in his beast mode here:

    And his robot mode here:

    ... good lord, that transformation is simplistic.

    Looking at that robot mode shot...

    Kinda wonder if he's gonna get an Alpha Trion-inspired redeco. He's rockin' the facial hair.

    But effective!

    It wouldn't be unprecedented, wasn't there a BM Snarl repaint as Alpha Trion planned at some point?

    Yep, 3H was planning it, but it never made it past the concept stage. Same with a planned repaint of Lio Convoy.

    ...looking at it, kinda glad that never happened.

    I'd definitely be down for a Steeljaw repaint. Razorclaw colors would look cool but I still like the Botcon Cybertron Leobreaker remold. It's not the best mold but the robot mode works better for Razorclaw IMO.

    Thanks for reminding me, THAT'S the repaint I really want to see from this mold (though likely as a Club thing, not a retail release). The original planned version would have looked pretty bad, but this one, if repainted, could work much better.

    On a different note, this guy would look great paired up with Cybertron Snarl. They have a similar design and coloring, I think they'd make a nice duo.
