    Over the Red Alert thing, there’s no point in even bothering. Read their SS Overload review thread where they outright refuse that it has any leg articulation (with several dozen pictures proving otherwise). Not worth it.

    Oh I think that is absolutely going to be the case like Bludgeon was to Tarn. RA is going to be the intended mold.

    Wait until Flatline gets more retooling/better retooling than Jhiaxtor Prime, that's when all hell will break loose

    Flatline is most certainly an Armada Red Alert repaint with a new head. Even most people on the fandom don't even know who he is.

    I'm betting this will be the case; "Primes," Armada Red Alert will be the Legacy Bludgeon/Cyberverse Windblade/Animated Prowl, while, "Primes," Flatline will be the Legacy Bludgeon/Slipstream/Cyberverse Chromia.

    That...actually makes perfect sense. Huh. It's an economic justification, for sure, but that also 100% feels like the kind of back-of-the-box story blurb that they would've included, to make the toyline look vaguely coherent. Good shout!

    I still think it's possible that he'll be a retool of Legacy Thundertron (which is why they went through great lengths, to give that guy a new mold), but this feels equally likely, now; either go with an older version (of Cheetor), or a younger one, instead.

    Sadly, yeah... As much as I like him he's what I'd call a fairly obscure character.

    presumably about the guy that was insisting there was some substantial chance Primes Voyager Red Alert might be a redeco/retool of Walmart Cannonball, and then getting snippy when people pointed out Armada Red Alert and Cybertron Red Alert are different

    I get that Legacy Vector Prime might be a fresh trauma, for some of y'all, but...this is what Flatline's alt mode looks like (the only picture of it available, anyway):

    [​IMG]

    And, this is Armada Red Alert's:

    [​IMG]

    I can see them retooling him, "more," than they did Legacy Vector Prime, but only because it'd largely just come down to the secondary cosmetics; maybe, a different front bumper, cannons (replacing the lightbars), and canopy, if he's lucky. Otherwise, though, I don't see how they could even put more effort into retooling Flatline, even if they wanted to; it's already, like, 80% there.

    If they wanted they could even maybe reuse it as a IDW Trailbreaker also

    Yeah i agree. Thats not the exact alt people are talking about, theyre talking abt an older hearse. Im expecting smth closer to the alt mode you linked above, but i know others are looking for something more radical

    God, Breacher is such a good toy.

    I still own the TT one.

    and now I want it to come full circle... a Voyager (or even Leader, but...) Class "HftD Universe Breacher" that can carry TR Seaspray in/on his vehicle mode.

    But a black Breacher would be awesome regardless

    As a More Than Meets the Eye-driven collector, I'd definitely welcome that!

    I want nothing more than for them to find a loophole, so that they can revive the live-action movie toyline C-listers, haha.

    Yeah i dont think anyone is expecting Flatline to be a new mold, Especially with Armada Red Alert being in the first wave and him in the third. Im just hoping theyll somehow find a way to give him something other than an apc mode. Its doesnt fit the character.

    This kind of strong reaction to a simple argument goes well beyond discussing toys.

    Regarding Red Alert, I hope it was clear: I asked multiple times where the "it's going to be a new mold" came from originally, and there was no confirmation. Until new information appears, it's realistic to expect a repaint of Legacy Cannonball with 1 or 2 minicons.

    Personally I'd prefer a full fledged voyager with some of the original gimmicks (e.g. rifle, leg platforms), but the design team has been less than generous in budgeting for that.

    It's not actually that realistic. It's 2 different Red Alerts. If it were Cybertron Red Alert as the Voyager then you'd be more than likely correct, but it's not. It's Armada
