Transformers: Reveal The Shield Voyager Lugnut Repaint/Retool Coming Our Way?

You don’t want a Facebook P.O.K.E from this guy… He is Lugnut. Transformers: Reveal The Shield Voyager Class Lugnut. And it seems as though he’s getting a Repaint/Retool.

TCracker of TFW2005 Transformers Toy Discussions spotted something odd in the Lugnut Instruction Sheets. A New Head. It’s the image to the left, folks. So, What do you think?

The new head looks like a cyclops Cobra Commander.
TM2 Dinobot
Broadside maybe?
Thundershot
I'm not sure what to make of it...
megatroptimus
New hat!
X-Arachnis
Brother Lugnut?

i kinda see broadside too... but i almost hope it's not...if we had to a have a 1 alt-mode only triple changer i'd prefer broadside as a ship than a plane.
C.W. McConvoy
If it's a cyclops (I'm not seeing it though), it's probably Whirl.
jforsyte
terredrives instructions are the same way.
MrSoundmeister
Head looks Very Clown like,but ill doubt it be a Sweet Tooth homage,he doesnt have a flaming head. but yeah i dont know what will it actually be,im guessing someone very obscure.
BScorpinok75
Please do not let that be Broadside. Make it some new character or whatever. Just dont take another Autobot triple changer from me. I will be so pissed.
Fire Blast
Looks like it could be Whirl if you were to ask me. Of course Whirl is usually a helicopter so that rules my theory out. Of course I thought if Hasbro was to make Broadside in the Classics/Generations line it would be a retool of Armada Tidal Wave.
Superquad7
I know I'm really excited to see who this turns out to be
Thundershot
Hopefully it's not supposed to be Shockwave, but that would explain why the US Lugnut isn't purple.
PoweredConvoy
We saw the head at BotCon 2010, but they didn't know who it was going to be then.

sheesh, what's wrong with Hasbro lately with them putting the wrong head on their instructions all the time
ManziG
Megatron?
Airspeed
New IDW Megatron design ?
blackout501st
i have absolutely NO clue who that new head might be. i could see whirl, although i still think the blackout mold makes for a better whirl *no offense lugnut *
nemisispringer
Well i tried to digibash this guy but it really didnt work out well this guys head has so many lines its really intresting he seems to have both a pair of normal eyes and mono eye which makes me wonder

Does this figure have the face switching gimmick of animated shocwave

or is the mono eye a minor detail

My guesses are
Whirl
Shockwave
Omega supreme
Cobra commander
broadside

This is a difficult one it must be said
trebleshot
The mold just doesn't scream Broadside to me. Shockwave would make sense, but I would think Hasbro would want to do a brand new mold for a character making his debut in TF3.

Can anyone think of any other Cyclopean Transformers that have a WWII-ish Bomber alt or similar?

I'm hoping they use Tomahawk for Whirl (and Blades), not Lugnut.

I'm enjoying the hell out of it so far. It's almost like a treasure hunt.
tehKOREANdude
i can haz zaku?
Eric
Hmm...Shockwave?
Lumpy
maybe its a new Decepticon named Rattler...
Blot
G2 Terradive is my guess:

Terradive (1993) - Decepticon Advance Fighter - www.tfu.info

The plane is a bit similar and the face is similar too.
JazzSanti86
Another one of those new sculpted heads we saw at Botcon this year and I'm still not sure who it could be. I'm hoping for Whirl but whoever it is the new sculpt looks cool.

Good work Blot. Love those skyscorchers. Everyone wants homages to cyberjets so these g2 basic planes get tucked away a lot.

The lugnut body would work for terradive. It absolutely would not for whirl. Whirl is a helicopter. So whoever said that probably was focused on the head a bit much.

Extra sweet black deco with translucent green windows. Stylin.

Oh. Another one that I always thought looked like lugnut was G2 ransack. At least in robot mode.

http://www.tfu.info/1994/Decepticon/Ransack/ransack.htm

That's also a possiblility. Though terradives lightpiping follows lines of the proposed retool. Totally agree.

... You can't be serious.
Ra88
I...Really have no idea who the hell that is. Definately not Shockwave, it would at least have earfins then. That, and it looks like he has three optics; the big central round one, and two more small ones that are slits.
VestigialHeart1
Why does this have to be an homage? Looks like a new character to me. Kind of like Tomahawk, Hailstorm and Terradive have been.
Anguirus
Intriguing.

Pet peeve: can we stop calling Lugnut a WWII bomber now? He's clearly a jet bomber.

It's been happening so often lately, I honestly think it's "Easter eggs" that Hasbro is purposefully doing for the fans.

As far as who it could be, my first instinct said Jhiaxus but I'm really not sure now. Either way I'm quite interested to see what colour scheme they'll use.

Wish i were,still yeah,i kinda see the clown-look if you see it in a proper angle,still i hope it isnt a clown (Which im glad he wont),that would be just... odd.

in other news,Transformers Twisted Metal Crossovers might be a Insane and rather out of reach idea.

I don't think anything is actually wrong. This is happening so regularly that there's just no way this is simply "slipping by" everyone who has to approve the instructions throughout the process leading up to printing. I'm quite sure by now that they are doing this on purpose.
grimlock1972
I think this is going to be a new character rather than a homage. the suggestion made are fine but i feel the body attached to the head doesn't work well enough for any.

only thing that comes to me is a new Stratosphere as the body shape fits even if the head it a bit off from the ROTF figure. and this line is movie aesthetic to a degree not a full on movie line.
Driftx3
Even though her previous one mold was a six wheeled tank/Vehicon, mt vote is for Stryka, that mold is spot on body-wise.
Peaugh
Yeah. Besides, they already HAVE a Terradive out currently. I don't see them reusing the name quite that immediately.

I reckon you might be on to something there...could be a relatively cheap way for the big H to get another 'G2 Insertnamehere' on the shelves.

like with ROTF Bludgeon?
TedimusPrime
For the record, if this turns out to be cobra commander... This would probably become the toy of the year.
Houndvoice
If Broadside, I'm so not interested. IIRC FP is putting out a Broadside and that's where my money will go.
Scaleface
I don't think it's one eye, it's the opening on his helmet. He's like Pretender Cloudburst's outer shell with the helmet on!

Cloudburst (1988) - Autobot Space Defense - www.tfu.info
Kenucme
The overall shape kinda cries out Omega Supreme to me, but I'm not so sure with the head. It'll be interesting to see the final results for this one.

Guessing the figure name like this almost calls for a poll at this point.
Ultrawave
Come on guys, isn't it obvious?

ATOMIC LUGNUT.

He's just got helmet on to protect him from radiation.
evil ivotron
My money is on whirl, broadside or a real lame attempt at voyager size Omega Supreme.
Rotorstorm
i hope it's Ransack, in the purple and teal, one headswap later...
