    Okay first off there is no rumor these will happen, I am sorry if that is what you were hoping when you opened this.

    The question is do you think Takar would do these characters for the United line?

    Possible using the tracks tooling but with wheeljacks shins/back of shins/whatever that part is called and with new heads? We pretty much know the wheeljack tooling even with a new head is pretty much not an option due to FunPub but is this alt option still open?

    Would that involve mixing and matching different sets of molds?

    Aside from that, i think the exclusive nature of the toys to Fun Pub, plus their relative second stringer nature, plus the fact they (G1) were never released in Japan (correct?) makes it pretty unlikely.

    Plus the cost of tooling new heads.

    But if you're good, Takara will graciously grant you the opportunity to pay $50 for a FOC Shockwave with metallic purple arms.

    there's a difference in a repaint and a full on retool

    Nope no way, never.

    It's one thing for figures like Thundercracker which is bound to happen, it's another thing for figures that Fun Pub uses their imagination on like Runabout and Runamuck.

    It's not like TakaraTomy recolored and retooled Universe Sunstreaker into Breakdown or Punch/Counterpunch.

    As the post above stated, Tamara nor hasbro has ever released a tfcc exclusive outside of the seekers.

    I think this will be the only way to get the run brothers, through tfcc that is.

    And when they did release TC, it was an exclusive itself and at least a couple years after the Botcon edition. So if they do take a stab at the Battlechargers I can't see it being anytime in the near future.
