    Cybertron Philippines has gotten small pictures of what appears to be a recolor of the Superion Maximus from the Energon series. The photos are small though.

    Pictures removed at request

    *mods - not sure of the policy towards posting prototype images here. please remove if this post is inappropriate. thanks :) 

    **apologies for removing the pics. received an email from the source who provided the pics for posting and is now retracting his statement.

    Ooooh..... hope it's real! I already display Energon Superion with my Classics, as a counterpart to Devastator. I'd love to be able to swap it out for an official version.

    Though it will be a little odd having the Aerialbots and Silverbolt existing as separate entities. I'm assuming that (again, if it's real) the central 'bot will remain Storm Jet or somesuch.

    I just wish they had proper hands and feet. Oh and that they did not look bowlegged when they stand.

    Possibly released at the same time/at the same store as the Universe Combaticons?

    Anyways, they look quite nice, especially the two darker-colored limbs. Will pick up.

    If this is true, I wonder if we will be getting a complete Bruticus Maximus as well seeing as Target will be getting two of the limbs.

    I donno after passing on both him and the other one repeatedly now I'm actually hoping they do him again. Always been one of those molds for me thats been borderline and have never really come to a definitive conclusion if I like it or not :lol

    I have a spare set of the originals I was going to customize, which I still might.. but I'm lazy so I'll probably buy there.

    The new color scheme looks interesting. Will have to wait and see bigger photos before deciding if its worth buying again.

    with my own on the horizon, more poseable, less parts to deal with, and made from deluxes for limbs instead of mere scouts/basics, my lust for this is considerably lessened, even though I love Superion (he was my first combiner as a kid). I also have the Energon version of the guy. It'll be weird having a large and a small version of him in the same line.... I Guess I'll have to come up with a new name for the lil one.

    Boo-yah, I called it. xD

    Definitely might pick these up. Unsure, depends how big of a mess I make with silverbolt and onslaught too ^^;;

    But eitherway, it's nice to see them doing this at least. I missed these two guys the first time around. And at least now that they've been repainted and re-released it means they might run out of molds to repaint soon for gestalts. And have to make more. xD

    I like the originals better, the superlink boxset was one of the best things to come out of that line.

    The gestalts period, were about the best thing to come out of that line. Besides a few decepticon molds at least. And the scouts. Omega Supreme too, but pending till animated omega's release. >.>
