    The only reason I even took note of this reveal.

    Word. At least this is more to lean on as opposed to "they might probably make Technobot limbs" that was bandied about. What seems like proof that a drill tank was in the cards for the mold.

    See, I actually like this one. Then again, I don't have the same attachment to the Council as I do to Tarantulas and Ravage.

    But at least this basically confirms Nosecone is coming.

    Huh. That's kinda neat.

    To see it's pretty likely Nosecone's happening. Still not sold on the Predacus combiner.. But having the council with their show heads is also a little interesting.

    Like others have said, this is my only point of interest with this Warpath-wannabe.

    Due to how long the original Sea Clamp toy was, I have a feeling that he may end up being the torso.
    And Cicadacon as an Aerialbot would make a lot of sense - my vote would be the Air Raid mold.

    But, I'm pretty content either way. I love the Beast Wars and Combiner Wars, so this boxed set is a must have in my book.

    Really looking forward to the souvenir set reveals as well. Maximals all the way!!

    I can see Nosecone from this, Afterburner from Groove, Strafe from an Aerialbot and Lightspeed from Dead End.

    So each limb coming from the four other Scramble City combiners in CW.

    I'm a huge fan of the Original Tripedacus, but this is just looking dippy so far. These beast heads they're using do not mesh with the CW aesthetic.

    I think wheeljack is more likely for Lightspeed, their chests are more alike.

    I bet he's red so Seaclamp can be toy colors and they'll look more like a Scramble City multicolored combiner.

    Oh, man, this is a big relief. Couldn't possibly care less about this character - I guess it's Blaster's rhino cassette as a Predacon? - but I'm super pumped that this kinda/sorta/not-really confirms the Technobots (please, dear deity of your choice don't fuck up Afterburner).

    How do we know that the drill is indeed a hint of a CW Nosecone figure and not a weapon that the TFCC made exclusively for Ramhorn? This wouldn't be the first time Fumpub did something like that.
