If you're watching, FP how about a City Commander to match the new Magnus deco?

To bad they would not make new molds for the other limbs. I would buy a Brawl and maybe Vortex. Vortex I think is good enough. Also in the set maybe include a replacement G1 head for Onslaught.

I was never a fan of the look that the energon Brawl had.

This was completely off my radar the first time around, but some of the pictures posted here have me quite interested. Are these to come with combiner parts as well to use with Bruticus Maximus?

I don't understand the combination of colors.

The red Munitioner seems to be an homage to Battle Gaia (red Swindle) - but they sorta already did that with Warcry.

On the other hand, green Explorer seems to be more homage to Ruination (greenish Blast Off). Odd pairing.

I would have preferred a re-release of the original colors. I already have them, but I liked those colors the most and would love to have a backup in case anything breaks on my originals.

Yeah, I'm not totally sure what's going on either. Explorer sorta maybe looks more cartoon accurate?

Regardless, for me it's going to depend entirely on if the combiner parts are included, and what they're color-matched to.

Phew, thank goodness I have no interest in these. 2 versions of the moulds are plenty for me.

Looks cool. Wonder if they will repaint the combiner parts though. Could be cool if they go full on with the G1 homage that the GDO Bruticus already has going and have the pieces match the coloring of their owners. Though it would make them look off outside of combined mode...

They look nice, love the molds.
Since I already have the originals and the repaints, I'm not getting this. Good news for people who missed them though
