Maybe they will retool Skylynx or do a brand new mold like they did with oilmaster last year.
Oilmaster was the Swerve mold, with a new shell accessory and some Construct Bot weapons.
A lot of people have said Skydive's head looks like Cicadadon's enough that some good paint could do the trick.
And it would work, as Seaclamp's doesn't look remotely close to anybody we have now.
The combiner *has* to have a new head. The idea behind the set would be wasted without a new head. And I think they know it'd turn a lot of people off.
I'm also wondering if they wouldn't have access to Victorion's hands and feet. Those feet would make good lobster claws.
Skydive would be a good mix between toy and show head designs.
Plus his wings/tail fins would resemble Cicadadon's insect layout.
I think one perk of using Cyclonus is that assuming no new combiner head, with the two arms as Tripredacus guys, he will look like robot Satan
Okay this one I'm interested in.
Since that's TWO new toolings for this mold - head and drill instead of the tank cannon - I'll be surprised if the new weapon doesn't get reused as Nosecone. Sure, we usually get new heads only, but a new weapon? That's unusual.
Then again, as of late Botcon has redefined what they will or won't do: new Pretender shell for Oilmaster and Headmaster Scorponok, but I have to imagine that even if Hasbro doesn't do Technobots, they'll get a UW release.
Not gonna that's not a bad idea.
I can dig Cicadacon from that mold.
too bad the Rook mold is Tanatulas, I thought he'd fit best from Rook because he could utilize the combiner wars hands as claw/pincers.
That still blows my mind that is happening.
Magmatron was suggested, I'd also suggest Hatchet based on the DOTM Dread.
I dunno, Sky Lynx is gonna have to be redecoed or retooled as SOMETHING. They never do one use of a mold and then never use it for anyone else. So if the Voyager in this set is Sky Lynx, it could work since he's already a beast character.
you sure about that? right now classics megatron and octane have no retools as other characters...same with generations rhinox
given his uniqueness i could see sky lynx being the one every so often that doesn't get a retool characters...he really can't be anyone else other than a black "stealth mission" sky lynx or something like that.
Name me a CW figure that didn't get retooled or redecoed.
Classics and Universe 2.0 were before everything got retooled. Though I suppose we haven't seen retools of figures like 30th Rhinox or Rattrap, CW has been heavy on it and most molds have gotten at least one retool so far.
not really just about everyone from even that era has been retooled or repainted. all the primes the datsuns onslaught and hardhead the literal LEGION of friggin seekers....repaints are not a new practice....granted the degree of repaints in CW is staggering but it's not like it's new here....and do we count botcon in this? cuz there's your rattrap/packrat repaint right there.
i'm just saying every now and then there is a rare instance where we don't get one....sky lynx very well could be it. seriously who else could be? there's no other character, aside from someone totally new, that has a shuttle mode to a dragon. honestly aside from a "stealth mode" or some weird all red "lava mode" who else looks like sky lynx?
btw i won't accept this magmatron hodgepodge that's going around since he can't turn INTO magmatron just the dinosaur pileup of his three modes. no other character is a space shuttle to a dragon
I'm telling you Sky Lynx will be the Giant Purple Griffin. It's gonna happen dammit!
That would be cool but what would they call it?
grimwing, to reference the BH griffin character, but the combined mode head has to be megatron-ish, so i can call it "megatron griffin" or "meg"
Darksteel? Grimwing? Like the Beast Hunters Voyager that was a griffin looking dude.
Otherwise, I still say Trypticon. A bit of tooling in the head and he could go from dino to Nemesis. Combined mode could even be "Nemesis Maximus" or something like that.
