    The Dreads in the movie are all different, but Crowbar and Crankcase look rather similar, and Hatchet looks like a lion.

    We've already got a deluxe Crankcase, but I'm wondering, what will they give us for the other two Dreads? Hatchet is a jet in the Cyberverse line, and Crowbar is a police car.

    Honestly, I'm hoping for three different deluxe Dreads (all unique molds) that transform into the same SUV.

    I wouldn't mind the police car for Crowbar, but screen accuracy is better.

    I think it would be very cool to get three figures with identical alt modes but unique sculpts that all have different transformation sequences.

    I'd give it a little bit of time, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least. Skids and Mudflap have nearly-identical altmodes already, so it shows that Hasbro isn't completely unwilling to do this. From the looks of things, Crowbar mostly just needs a retool, while Hatchet would have to be a completely new figure, I think.

    I think we have a better chance of getting the jet and police car, just cause it may get a bit confusing to parents seeing the same damn thing sitting in the store and trying to decide if their kids need it or have it. Sure we have gotten a bunch of Bumblebees, but they are all the same character. With these guys, I am not sure that a soccer mom would care much what one they get. I am now considering picking up a couple more SUVs though, although I wish they were a bit bigger.

    thats a great point considering they do that with some deluxes but im still having trouble finding a Crankcase that doesnt have his bird clipped(I want him accurate, Damn it) so i hope they give it time for the other 2

    im not clear on names but Hatchet i think it is could easily be a head swapp/retool of crankcase, though as others said the lion looking one will problly be its own mold

    I'd easily settle for Crowbar being a retool of Crankcase, with a new head and tentacles in lieu of pinchers.

    As would i. They must at least have considered it.





    Crowbar is the other two legged one. Hatchet is the four legged one.

    (I think i'm right?)

    As someone said, I wouldn't be suprised if we saw them all as deluxes. Skids and Mudflap got deluxes despite identicle alt modes.
