    Watch Hasbro chicken out and make Flatline a generic SUV.

    Also looks a lot like Red Alert aside from the orientation of the doors though. (And of course from the fact that it's a 60s hearse and not a 2000s SUV or an 80s hatchback.)
    That's better than an APC since that could at least be customized into a coroner van, which would still fit his theme:

    The IDW APC would just be yet another generic Decepticon with a military alt mode.

    Honestly it would be a smart move regardless tho. Getting more uses out of a mold is better in the long run so we can have new molds for characters that deserve it

    It's from GTA V lol, I just used that picture because it was the only one I could find that was a truck more like Red Alert rather than a van.

    I’d rather have that over another batch of early G1 guys who already have Generations toys. Storm Jet’s original figure was pretty terrible, so I’d like to have a more structurally solid update of him. (It’d also mean that we’d be one step closer to a Nexus Prime redeco. I’m hoping for Combaticon retools in 2026 or the year after.)

    It'll probably be ultra-G1, like Legacy Menasor, but if they do deviate like that, then I'll be fine with my CW Superion.

    Bold of y'all to assume that, "Primes," Flatline will be anything more than a minor retool - i.e. A new head, and redeco - of, "Primes," Armada Red Alert.

    [​IMG]

    Even if they were to share a tooling, their design layouts are still largely similar - the headlights on the chest, with a bumper chunk, between 'em; slim, humanoid legs, with wheels on their sides - with the biggest discrepancy being Flatline's lack of door wings...which, I really don't think they'd remove from Armada Red Alert, for his sake. At worst, Armada Red Alert will have Flatline's shoulder cannons, which I wouldn't say is a betrayal of his design, by any means.

    I'll always appreciate these wild pulls, but Flatline seems like such a, "We don't have any other character for this figure to be retooled into," pick; there's no way they're going to put a lot of effort for him, over Armada Red Alert. Not even Legacy Slipstream is getting that kind of courtesy.

    If TFW's own Jarles T. Prime the 17th (may he retire in peace) described Flatline as "likely an Armada Red Alert partial" that's enough for me to put money on Voyager Red Alert not being a Cannonball redeco.

    For my money if Flatline was also a Cannonball partial, jt would've described him as such, or gone for the meme and told people he was *another* Skids retool - which at this point I kinda want to see just for the discourse it would spawn.

    I'm just hoping Red Alert is the Tarn of the relationship and not the Bludgeon

    Yeah I fully expect Flatline to be a Red Alert retool, but I think he'll get some retooling done. He honestly just seems like that one oddball character that Mark would want to put all his effort into making. If I were to guess he'll probably redone from the waist up and have his alt mode reshelled into one that suits him more. Though I think him and Red Alert will share the legs as they certainly have similar kibble placement there.

    To contrast that, I think Trion will just be a AHIB retool, but based off one of his younger looks when he met the Aerialbots. So probably just AHIB Trion but with a mustache instead of a beard.
