    Very nice.  Imma get them.

    Trying to get a tankish sci-fi thing out of a ship-esque sci-fi thing is harder than it looks.  Keeping the skids adds that perfect touch of sci-fi awkward.

    I wonder if they realize the irony that since they refused to let Hot Rod be magenta so many times, Flame is coming off as Hot Rod\'s dad?

    They could do this but not give Slipstream a proper figure? :confused: 

    Wondering who's in charge of where the budget goes because I'm confused on who these figures are for. Calling these characters obscure would be an understatement.

    To be fair they at least think she can sell at mass retail which may not be likely for two comic only characters.

    Not happy about all the specifics, but there are some upsides.

    Flame was a character I was hoping would get his own mold because of how unique his bot and tank modes were, but he's also pretty obscure so I'm content with this WfC Megs retool.

    Xaaron looks excellent though. Love it.

    I just realized that because this is a Hasbro exclusive that means Xaaron could be in the Amazon exclusives next year for Wreakers vs Mayhem.

    I was not a kid during G1, prime and live action were the current things for me but, I had the 86 film, the rebirth and the comic that emirate xaaron\'s from so you can imagine how disapointed i was to see the red forearm on straxus\' box but Oh My God I screamed when I saw this, I\'ve been waiting years for this, he\'s the leader of the autobots on cybertron, he\'s important, should\'ve gotten a figure sooner

    Always wanted a figure of Flame and honestly this is pretty good! I'm one of those people who have absolutely zero issue with Gamer Megs once the clip is clipped off. I dare say I even love it more than the 2010 Deluxe. I'll grab this for sure!

    Xxaron is quite the surprise. Wasn't sure who he was made from at the beginning since the deluxe Reflector space ship mode isn't one I use much at all. I love that mold too and I'm glad to see it reused!

    Emirate was heavily associated with the wreckers in Marvel. While impactor was the leader, xarron was his boss. Then when springer was leader emirate also acted as a mentor and leader to him.

    Flame was never going to get an accurate alt. mode from HasTak... not with all those spikes. Remember they're at the mercy of having to adhere to a kid-safe policy.

    Now... if spiky is your thing, then lets hope TFC takes a stab (pardon the pun) at the character. Some of those bastard Seacons drew blood

    Can you imagine getting the giant primus face and emirate in gold on a display piece?

    *sigh* I REALLY hate that these are infected with cel-shading, but have no faith in ever seeing toys of these characters again. I guess I'll be picking them up.
