    Chromedome from Wheeljack and Ironfist from Swindle...
    I kind of want to know what Hasbro shot down. This kind of makes me sad because it might mean that Hasbro has no plans for Chromedome or Ironfist next year. No complete Wreckers OR Lost Light crew. Ah well, all the other stuff is awesome.

    Uh, yeah should combine, as I don't think they said they'd be remolding anything major.

    So much hate. I'm glad there's those of us that love these concepts. I can't wait to find out who the other three are...

    ^ Yeah! This is much MUCH better than the scatter-shot first assortment. As a comics fan, Chromedome and Ironfist are must-haves. That Decepticon out of Warpath is a "sure why not." And I want to track down Depth Charge anyway so that X is a great idea. I like the mold choice there quite a bit.

    Transmutate is the only pure miss but she's the easiest to skip.

    Much easier to justify this subscription when you are getting stuff that fits a definite theme. If everyone is G1, especially comic G1, cool!

    I would've preferred Chromedome from TFA Rodimus - he just seems to fit the mold really nice - seeing him like this all hunched - meh.

    Nothing here that interests me at all. I like Chromedome, but I don't like the Prime figures at all.

    Ok TFCC ya got my money for next year for Protoform X. Now send me my damn Depth Charge already.

    Also transmutate? Hmmm, I'll have to see pics but color me intrigued. A tleast should be cheaper than buying the original transmutate piecemeal.

    Though'll be fucking weird having Transmutate being so tall.

    Okay, I see from the photo that Protoform X is a "Predacon", but I thought Megatron forced him to join the Predacons in the Beast Wars. If this is truly a pre-Beast Wars Protoform X, shouldn't he be a Maximal?

    Also, if this is Transmutate before her accident, shouldn't she be called Jill or Betty or something, anything but Transmutate?

    I don't know yet. I need to see pictures of Rampage & Transmutate.

    A Generations Warpath repaint is always a good thing.

    I don't give a rat's ass about Chromedome or Ironfist. I don't even know who Ironfist is. I fucking despise comic books!


    EDIT: Oh, pictures showed up while I was typing.^
    Rampage is ok, not bad, not good, just meh.
    Arcee repaint is awesome. But not as Transmutate, I just like colors & the mold & another female TF. I don't care about the character Transmutate at all.

    Protoform X sounds cool, as does chromedome, Ironfist from Swindle, i had that idea myself but once i had swindle in hand i decided against it as I didn't like that toy that much.

    Just seen pictures, that Rampage is beautiful. I didn't subscribe for Depth Charge but this guy might just suck me in.

    I guess Chromedome could work from Wheeljack. I hope he has the MTMTE colour scheme and head.

    I'm not feeling the Ironfist from Swindle. I'll be getting the 3rd party one for that.

    If this were what Hasbro was planning to do for the characters, they would have been shot down too!

    TBH, i thought it was the Tigertron colour scheme when i first saw pics. Don't know how that works for ya?

    Ironfist using the FoC Swindle mold? Like the FoC Wreckers, I'm not too enthused about the idea. 3P Mach 5 still has my money if and when they release their more IDW comics accurate not-Ironfist (Gauntlet) figure.

    Well she never had a name in the show, just what they had called her. I see this just as a glimpse of what she used to be/could have been and it's even sadder since we'll never know the real name. ;)

    In that Beast Wars Botcon, a lot of the characters weren't called by name in the comic. Although, as far as the toys, I think only Tigatron's carried through with it (Unit 2).

    I desperately hope that they take advantage of this situation and give pre-Transmutate a crazy, unexpected personality. Anything that's not "peace, kindness, hurt" etc. She suffers massive brain damage, so there wouldn't be much left of the previous personality when she becomes Transmutate.

    And for a bit of grumpiness, weren't all those protoforms on the Axalon, ya know, protoforms? So far, we've learned that Tigatron and Airazor were people that got caught in an accident. If this Transmutate is indeed from that same storyline, then she, too, wasn't a blank protoform. How many of those pods are filled with people instead of protoforms?

    I would like some of the characters who come from the protoform pods to actually be protoforms.
