    New Universe figs? Those are the Energon combiners, but with new decos. They certainly look legit. Perhapes they're like the movie's scout line?

    Interesting. they do look legit. Not from the old Universe line, but could be from either the new Universe line or the Movie line (Target Exlusive Scouts). Either way I wouldn't mind picking them up. Another Energon Gestalt repaint would be nice, imo. The only odd thing is their names, Whirl and Sandstorm, yet they are Decepticons. Not a biggy, though I'd probably make them Autobots if I got them (give us repaints of the other three in the team and it'd make a nice Gestalt to counter the Classics Devastator that I have).

    There are already two target movie scout repaints of Energon combiners scheduled. They're already repainting the tank and um... one of the planes?

    They've repainted the tank and the helicopter (we still haven't seen this wave in retail yet unfortunetly). That helicopter was green and had clear blue parts like the tank does. I personally don't think that those two and these two are supposed to go together. These might very well be a part of the Universe line. Personally I'd be happy with just a little bit of red paint on the Decepticon logos to make them Autobots, as the molded logo doesn't have all that much detail in it.

    Edit: This could be why they trademarked the name Combaticons...

    Though I wouldn't mind Sandstorm either...

    Yeah, but my question is, why does he have a key? Do you think they remolded him to have a slot?

    The Cybertron repaint of this very mold had a special key that was molded to have a minicon port on it, so that it would work instead of a minicon. This repaint seems to have the same feature.

    Edit: Here's a picture showing the Cybertron repaint in-package:

    Yep. The Cybertron repaint of Demolisher had the same gimmick too. Looks like this'll be another addition to the Armada Series part of the Universe line. Here's hoping it isn't long till we get some more info on these guys.
