    I've complained in at least a few posts that the Undertow mold should have been recolored as Manta Ray. Getting confirmation that Marine Master is the same character, even in different colors.... well, it's not ideal, but it's good enough for me. Pre-ordered. I'm just a sucker for G2 Classics additions.

    Well, the color scheme comes first and the identity of the character comes second.

    Takara doesn't give any thought to who the character could be when producing the color scheme. They leave that to Hydra.

    Tankmaster as Grindcore? Doesn't seem to work for me. I was expecting Marinemaster to be Manta Ray. I must buy this!

    Grindcore eh.

    I do love the name of that guy.

    also we officially have Manta Ray done from the Undertow mold. but no do it in the correct colours.

    Considering the Allspark has very close ties to Hydra (aka, the dude who wrote the fiction to begin with) I think it'd be very wise to take them for their word on who is who.

    Yeah Andrew Hall / Hydra said specifically that Grindcore was Tankmaster.

    See below for the post.

    Nice! I'm enjoying the fiction Takara's added to th PCC's. It almost makes me want to buy these horribly overpriced toys. Granted, I do like this set's colors, especially Tankmaster's.

    That's was an amusing story, but could the Takara transformer names get any more redundant? Xo

    It's like the old Brave combiner names from the 1990s:
    Aqua Baron, Drill Baron, Sky Baron, Road Baron, Guard Fire, Guard Rescue, Guard Wing...

    ...It probably sounds a lot cooler if you speak only Japanese.... :p

    I thought Grindcore was a repaint of Cybertron Landmine. Who in turn is inspired by a member of the Six-Builder Micromaster team.

    He is.

    He got retroactively added to G1 via IDWs comics; he was a member of the crew of Ark-1 like Nova Prime, Jhiaxus, Straxus, etc.

    He was but then Simon Furman fell in love with the name and decided to create a new character with that name for IDW comics.
