    I daresay that, although I'll certainly concede a majority, it's probably a far cry from "everyone else." This fandom has demonstrated a wide variety of interpretation in the past.

    As to this color scheme being boring.... Well, I wouldn't have gone all red. I'll admit that up front. I'd have done something entirely different (but, again, NOT the existing Tripredacus scheme. Official references made later notwithstanding, those guys are different guys to me). The red we see on the show was clearly (IMHO) a lighting effect. Not their actual colors.

    That said, I don't think having the two "not-red" limbs be both legs or both arms would result in something all that odd looking at all. We'll have to see once the reveals are done.

    No, obviously they're vaguely hitting what could've been an alt mode prior to a beast mode, but that's really where the connection ends. Beetle is tank, Cicada is plane, and the last one, well, we'll see how that happens.

    I'm actually excited for that, as I can display him in a second row with all unified torso and arms, or can display him with a mismatch look too. I can see the idea of having them all match too though, but I think that's a bit boring in combiners, but that's just my taste.

    Come on, Digi-Bashers, hurry up. We want to know what this thing will look like in toy form.

    So, wait...

    This guy is Skydive, the last figure is Nosecone, and we also have Breakdown and Rook repaints in here, too. And with the last figure being a torso bot...

    Is it possible?

    Are we actually getting a new combiner that doesn't have the damn helicopter as a limb?

    Oh I see what they did. They knew the TFCC Exclusive Windsweeper wouldn't sell so they repacked him and gave him a new name.:lol

    Even if that happens, we'll still have gotten THIS combiner. And with all the limbs revealed, I think the time for a party has begun!

    (Change that last to "Galt Hotel", or better yet "Galt House", for extra convention bonus points)

    ...I would actually highly consider springing for that. And then play Dollhouse.

    I'll legitimately buy it if it ever gets made. Let's just make every Alpha Bravo repaint the next 2 letters of thephonetic alphabet :lol

    It's a good thing when this stuff looks like crap, because fans shouldn't support it. So I'm happy.

    Wow dude. Just wow. This is just really ignorant and spiteful. I know you'd love to see Hasbro go bankrupt and only have glorious Takara make your toys, but don't be a Negative Nancy and rain on others' parades.

    I may not care for the idea, but I'm not gonna say people shouldn't buy it. Their money and all that.

    Reddish torso/arms, with black legs would look like a guy looming from the shadows.
