    Skydive! Use Onslaught for Sea Clamp. Cicadadon matches heads better than anything on a Voyager. ;) 

    And, if Hasbro is playing nice, use Victorion's feet so it looks like how Tripredacus stands on Clamp's claws.

    I know every one see nosecone from this and I do too......but more than anything I see Victory Drillhorn. Plus his head, which is a new head, I see a possible reuse of it on a CW Aerielbot for a Hellbat. You can get Leozack from Silverbolt, Killbison from Brawl and Jallguar from the CW Hound mold. Then you can do the beloved DeathCobra from Alpha Bravo(reuse the Serpentor head if possible) and do Guyhawk from Legends Powerglide or from another Aerielbot. There you go, CW Liokaiser. Hope FunPub or Hasbro(probably unlikely) make it happen.

    I like the head sculpt.

    Makes too much sense to not make it happen. Come on FunPub

    I love a CW Liokaiser...but where would the sixth guy go? He's kind of the oddman out!

    they need to make this ASAP!

    I predict Killbison will be a slightly retooled Blackjack/Rodimus; it fits the breast armor theme too well.

    So who do we think made the drill, Hasbro or FunPub? Because if it's FunPub, then they'll be the ones doing the Technobots, as Hasbro is not in the business of giving mass retail releases to original FunPub tooling.

    if the other two tripredicus council guys are red like that and have headmolds based on the cartoon, I may just have to buy my first botcon set in 15 years !

    will be selling my ravage and tarantulas though !

    As much as I like your suggestions, I would strongly prefer new molds being churned out for Liokaiser (if the Makers really decides to grant us one).

    The traditional Breastforce gimmicks of having these transform from weapons & finally integrating with the individual Bots is far too cool for Arms Microns to achieve.

    Neither, it's probably a TakaraTomy part for an upcoming Computron Boxset. After all, Takara already has a bike mold with Groove, and a Lightspeed-ish transformation in CW Smokescreen, now all they need is a Strafe and a head for Scattorshot that doesn't suck...

    TT already hinted in the first FIGURE OH magazine interview when Superion was released, that they have every intention of doing "all" the original combiners...

    I would love to see Rescue Force as well, good opportunity to finally give the combiner the missing arm components after so many years!

    In a hypothetical CW Liokaiser I imagine Jallguar will be the odd bot out in most cases (since he wouldn't be needed for the torso). But hey maybe he and Deathcobra can be advance recon/scouts/emergency limbs :)

    Aww...I could have accepted a backwards tank with a drill sticking out of its ass, barely. But couldn't they have at least filled in the hollow feet or something? For whatever reason that detail completely breaks the figure for me.

    So we have 1 of 2 sets for the rest of the figures:

    Voyager Onslaught into Seaclamp
    Deluxe flier for Cicadacon

    or

    Voyager Cyclonus into Cicadacon
    Deluxe car for Seaclamp

    I think they are going to opt for the 2nd set though. Galvatronus has a very similar looking chest to Tripredacus, additionally the whole tie in of the Tripredacus council possibly being minions of Unicron, it'd stand to reason that they would have similar builds to Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scourge.

    I like the theory some have suggested of Sea Clamp using the Dragstrip mold. It's a slender car that could work decently.

    My big question is, what about the Tripredacus Council's BLING?! Add ons in the box set? Add ons like SG Soundwave's Bandana? Or not at all?

    Computron wasn't in the first group, so it's debatable if it's actually considered one of those originals.

    Looks like good news for anyone hoping for the Technobots, 'cuz that alt-mode screams Nosecone.

    As much as I want Technobots, I don't think Hasbro has plans to release an accurate one. I'll just have to wait for Takara.
