    I personally thing the tooling is okay, but i wish they'd at least change the head colors to be more Computron-y.

    Bolded the two callouts.

    - Lightspeed will almost certainly be Wheeljack. I know people are getting bored of the Breakdown mold, but looking at his chest piece they've got plans for him to be other cars with a canopy on their chest.

    - Strafe as a jet will be unpopular, but I'm guessing Hasbro will use the Air Raid mold. He and Sky Dive are the only guys who haven't been reused in the mainline, but looking across the series Sky Dive will have two TFCC repaints in Windsweeper and Cicadacon.

    I wonder if this means Blast-Off (if Takara has a new mold) will be used as Strafe as well in Unite Warriors.

    Yes please, give them to me now.

    Perfect Effect are almost guaranteed to do one, all they'd have to do is a bit of retooling on their Superion chest-plate/head kit.

    I must admit that I wasn't ready for these as I was looking up to TakaTom for their version of Computron.

    Nevertheless, its good news for the boys that wanted these though...

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

    I FUCKING TOLD YOU GUYS, I WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG!

    I can't believe people actually doubted this was ever gonna happen.

    I'm more amazed Afterburner is happening from Groove. Hopefully this means Groove is getting a Hasbro release of some kind.

    Makes it a little surprising that strafe isn't retooled from UW blastoff really.

    that's cool but doesn't change the fact that the most important member scattershot is crap.

    Considering that we've only seen 3 of the Breakdown mold compared to the umpteen uses of the Deadend mold, its not that big a deal.
    I think the Wheeljack version is probably the best option for a Lightspeed at this point.

    They're not that far off each other:

    Breakdown -> Sunstreaker -> Jumpstream -> Wheeljack
    Dead End -> Break-Neck -> Streetwise -> Prowl -> Smokescreen -> Dustup

    Looks good enough to me, i'm just happy we are getting Technobots :dj 
    Now bring on UW Computron and a third party replacement for Strafe.
    Liokaiser is looking more and more likely ;)

    I'm confused.

    Strafe and Blastoff are each spacefaring vehicles with a delta-ish wing setup. I will give you that...but they've got nada in common otherwise.

    Additionally, we have no solid indication of what UW Blastoff will look like anyway....do we? They've hinted that he may be coming...that's it.

    Some believe that Takara will design Blastoff and Strafe simultaneously so one can be a retool of the other (because they also believe Takara will do the Technobots properly, which seems not unlikely).

    Err that is exactly what they have in common as apposed to what well any aerialbots have in common with Strafe? I mean it's got to be simpler to retool from a common base poitou as apposed to a vastly different one.
