He said fire truck. Cybertron is out of the question, so I’m thinking RID homage.
I'm thinking of Unicron Leo, whose explicitly a maximal. There was also a normal Nemesis?
Wooo-weee, it is a...lot.
It really looks nothing like Cyclonus.
Maybe not for me.
Nice to see Armada Megatron
It's honestly pretty amazing. Gatekeepers are bottom dwellers anyways. They're absolutely right. I may be almost strictly G1 but I'll never stop anyone from wanting to have their toys as well.
Speaking of the Volvo...I can only speak to my experience as a UPS worker. See a lot of our trucks and not a lot of Volvos in our fleet. Lotta Mack and Western Star stuff. But the Volvo is a pretty great truck too. I think my company is getting a few hundred Tesla trucks for short Regional treks.
It'll probably be Combat Prime.
Unfortunately it is not. He is teasing the leaked Animated OP for 2024.
Fire truck Optimus Prime, hmmm.
Scourge was already leaked, but yeah, honestly, I think he's alright! Truck mode looks great, like how the robot looks... can agree that he is pretty drab color-wise though. Still though, buying because he looks cool. The Freezer gun mode looks nice as well!
Grimlock in dino mode looks weird back-wise, but the robot mode looks pretty nice, definitely captures his look. I hope the leg mode is mistransformed, because in the stream, it looked pretty... blegh.
Nemesis Prime looks exactly how we'd expect, so no surprises there. Cool that they included the axe, that wasn't something I expected!
Thundercracker... better late than never! Again, looks like we'd expect, but even though it's gotten leaked already, still glad he got his null-rays.
Crashbar has a really nice design that fits well with all the Junkions we've had so far, and I like how different they made him from the Wreck-Gar and Junkheap figures. Don't have Scraphook yet, but willing to bet they'll partner up nice! Oh yeah, bike mode looks pretty nice too. And that spinning wheel-shield looks like an absolutely amazing accessory.
Shrapnel's... OK? He feels a tad bit too blocky in insect mode, and his head looks pretty small. That being said, hoping he's better in-hand, Kickback was pretty good! Interesting to see how they made the back insect legs into the forearm blasters.
Crosscut's exactly what we expected, the red wheels make him pop more honestly, even if they do look weird. Glad they gave him the Burn-Out head, wasn't sure they'd give him that because of the former getting his head for whatever reason.
Prowl looks alright. The back wings look too big for him in my honest opinion, but aside from that, looks like he's pretty much just a slightly updated version of the original in a new aesthetic, and that's all he really needed to do.
Metalhawk was a Cyclonus retool, which I didn't expect. That being said, he looks accurate to how he did in the anime, based on TFWiki's screenshot, so not too torn over that. The jet mode cockpit looks a bit small, but otherwise, it looks really great!
Twincast is pretty much just a Blaster redeco, like we all expected. Nice that they finally got the smirking head on him. Sucks that Rewind is clear plastic as well though.
Skyquake honestly looks pretty nice... not attached to the character, so not torn on the design changes, but from what I've seen, he looks fairly accurate in robot mode. The vehicle mode is kind of inaccurate, but I don't mind, honestly; he looks like a great figure!
Who's listed for next year, so presuming that's a hint for that. That being said, a RID01 figure or a redo of Cybertron would be awesome.
That's what I'm thinking.
I think Axelgrease is this Junkion which looks to be the basis for an eventual Animated Lockdown
"Maybe some exclusives in March"!
Exclusives getting official reveals in March. @Bob Schoonover to the speculation-mobile!
Best reveal/announcement of the stream for me is Volvo Prime in classic colors
No hint or mention of Earth mode Hound?
Well that was short.
Easy to due since while he’s a fire truck, he’s mostly the cab and the cab is more normal truck than fire truck.
We're on the same page.
We already have listings for a voyager Animated Optimus next year.
This actually works out well with how Lockdown’s whole thing of taking parts off other guys and slapping it on himself.
