    It's not *that* interesting he's a deluxe. He's Smokescreen's size in his only appearance. He's not a big guy.

    They're doing them because other brands have been doing them.

    Its more mold speculation. Iron Factory made a fig of him from their Scourge mold, and many specualted that he would be a re-tool of the SS-86 Voyager Scourge mold.

    BEACHCOMBER! Welp sorry Gears not this time bud you know what to do.......GET BACK IN YOUR HOLE HASBRO SAID NOOOOOOO! *cracks whip* GO ON GIT!!!! *cracks whip again*

    In all seriousness that's a surprise. Figured if they were going around again we'd see Powerglide first.

    Soo excited for Metalhawk and Prowl. Very much my two most anticipated figures. Can't say Skyquake because that dang oversized forehead crest still bugs me like crazy.

    Shrapnel another fine update really excited to see Bombshell even more so.

    OH OH NO Grimlock what oh MYYYYY. It's like he didn't skip leg or arm but he forgot about his core. It's hilarious in robot mode but man look at all dat junk in Grimlocks trunk. DAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYUUUM!

    :cool: 
    A lot of good stuff and potential for future releases. They need to drop the Last 2 Dinobots already. Money is tight some of us are holding back. We can’t Not buy the Last. Everything else is niche. We are going to buy it all of course…. It feels like they are stretching this really thin though. Land the plane so we can refuel grab a sandwich and take off again.

    Thats because his truck mode art is re-used and recolored art of the Earthrise Optimus mold.

    Right - and I get that - I just think it's lame to have it in the artwork but not included with the figure.

    Interesting that Freezer is a gun for Scourge, really hoping that his other forms are also weapons that can go with figures, I remember Freezer's page saying he had 3 weapon forms.

    Huh, after being really interested in him yesterday, I'm kinda disappointed by metalhawk's jet mode. Seeing as he's a cyclonus retool, I thought they'd do something similar with the sleekness and long nosecone being hidden away. Jet looks rather blocky and stumpy for the mold being used.

    Yeah, it’s gun form with legs folded, gun form with legs extended and the emplacement mode that attached to the back of Scourge.

    Not a ton for me, but I'm a sucker for Japanese G1 so I preordered Metalhawk right away. Twincast looks snazzier than expected since I never liked his color scheme in animation, but I'm content with Kingdom Blaster so I'll probably only get him discounted.

    Love the Skyquake mold, don't love the paint job. Ideally I really want to see it in his crazy G1 colors, but I'd take Machine Wars Starscream.

    Bit unsure on Core Grimlock, but I'm not as down on it as some others and I'm more interested in what it will look like as Goryu. I see he has the little thing behind his robot mode head just like Goryu.

    That's a pretty sweet alt mode for Metalhawk! I was thinking more along Cyclonus' mold, but never expected he would turn out like that. Will also grab Skyquake, Prowl, Nemesis, and Thundercracker (gotta complete the trio as always).

    Set it and forget it! Just put in my pre-orders on Pulse. It’s curious timing because my Evo Wave 1 cores arrived Saturday, voyagers arrived today and deluxes probably next week.

    I mean, it’s fun to hunt at retail but it’s also nice not having to worry about missing out.

    Most looking forward out of today: Skyquake!

    I think Nautica is a good option too, as long as they can retool the torso and legs to be a little more feminine for her. Their alt modes are similar overall shapes and they both transform with the same area of it forming their chest and their arms forming the sides. She'd just need the wings added:

    You mean last THREE Dinobots, right? There are six that form up Core Class Volcanicus this time around.

    And in that sense, you can get a Thunderblast from it as well.

    I just hope they make them look feminine enough since that's how both should look.

    Did they say this anywhere? I'm curious what you mean by attached to the back of Scourge, the stream from what I can remember only showed it as a gun attached to his arm. I assume the gun form with legs extended is a turret sort of thing?
