interesting.

as long as it has a new head mold I don't see any issues happening here.

I love the new handguns. I can see folks easily using them with other TFs too.

though they should make the handles a bit shorter so they aren't touching the roof.
It may cause potential rubbing issues or even make indentations over time.

The robot mode isn't going to be a great match for G1 Crankcase if that's indeed what they were going for, I might have gone this route instead:

Autolauncher:


Unreleased G2 colors:


But that mold always had a Marvel-styled Crankcase head, so either it's a cool coincidence or they're intentionally trying to solidify Crankcase's connection to the cancelled G2 release.

They certainly have ambition for a new 3P group.

I feel like the sloped part behind the silver hexagon should all be windshield.

It makes sense to design two versions of the toy at the same time. Hasbro learned that too.

I know, I posted it. But this is a different release, does it not qualify for a new thread?

Pretty cool re-deco, no interest unless they have plans for more triggermasters.
