There's a rumor that FP's small-headed combiners will be explained in their upcoming lore.
When theyre going to release in G1 colors to match the Brute, weren't the originals in G1? Just wanna make sure I'm not missing anything.

I guess. What about Explorer then?

There is still an ass load of demand for these two. A reissue would be best for a lot of people, even with a minor repaint.

Darker hues of the same colors.

If anything, these could be made to match the colors of the G1 cartoon and toys. G1 Swindle in his toy and cartoon appearances was more yellow than the more recent Swindle toys (Animated, 1st release Munitioner, and SDCC), which are more of a gold by comparison. G1 Blast-Off was a darker brown and gray (possibly black) in both toy and cartoon incarnations. I'd imagine that they could make the purple Explorer bits into fuchsia, which was another common depiction in the cartoon.

Wouldn't brigher colors clash? This new Bruticus is supposed to be darker than the first one, no?
Coming soon: minitroptimus (ETA: Oct. 23).

I honestly don't know. I'm only saying that it's still possible to make them even more G1 faithful than before. They could go for a darker shade of yellow that's still distinct enough from the original Munitioner.

personally, I don't give a damn about the shade of the colors. as long as their close to the original release, it's fine by me
