    I thought the same thing, but then again, the Siege Prowl is super smooth and only has one 5mm in alt mode.

    Retool Masterpiece Primal into Kong and there you go a new crossover figure.

    BEST thing about the Top Gun crossover is if Reprolabels gets into the game. The figure is deco'd like Maverick, but if Reprolabels does a label set to turn Maverick into Iceman!

    Honesty I\'m a llittle tired of seeing soo many versions of Megatron coming out. We have a Siege War for Cybertron ,then Netflix\'s Megatron. I wanna see characters we haven\'t seen rereleased in a while,like Blaster,Perceptor,upgrade Powerglide,more Decepticons. But I\'m highly interested in seeing what Top Gun Maverick is gonna look like.

    Maverick's head reminds me of Dreadwind.

    At least Maverick and Ectotron are both new characters and not like the old crossovers where the heads were based on the Star Wars or Marvel characters.

    Hopefully Cyclonus and Thrust will be repainted as Ferak and Nacelle respectively though I'd preferred if Thrust used the Siege Seeker mold.

    Personally I'd like to see the Coneheads not be Coneheads like the G1 toys. Just normal Seeker heads with retooled wings.

    Maverick's head is ABSOLUTELY based on his flight helmet decoration. The image is a bit small but if you look closely at the head it's very, very obviously Maverick's helmet as the head!

    Yeah it would a new BW figure but it would be based on a movie animal.

    Yeah, but I feel a mechagodzilla makes more sense as it'd blend in better with other mechanical bots, but i just want one to happen honestly

    Having gotten Cliffjumper 2 weeks ago, I can't wait for Hubcap.

    I'd love to see Maverick repainted as Beast Wars Dirge or Robotmasters Wingstun.

    Thrust: looks predictably great. Hope he ends up having cluster bombs instead of null rays.

    Soundwave: really does look to have significant remolding. I presume this has to be the Walmart G1 RED(eco?) listing figure. Looks great... wonder what the alt mode will be if it's not the obvious. Will we get a new Condor mold to go with him? or a re-release of Rumble/Ratbat (and yes, Siege becomes more and more pointless with each new re-release - so glad I passed on most of it outside the obscure characters) Given this, I really wonder what the Megatron will be: Siege with different remolding? Earthrise with a premium paint job like Netflix Megatron?? or just aven more G1y repaint of one of them???

    Cyclonus:
    I'm really surprised at how much love he's getting in this thread. he just looks INCREDIBLY dumpy to me in both modes. Really, the ONLY thing I can give this guy (from what we see here) is that he's bigger ~ the Universe figure just has way more dynamic proportions: the higher shoulders in particular help his look. I'll take the gappy back end on a sleak, deadly looking spacefighter over one that looks like it's been hitting the buffet way too often. I also just hate when they go more lavender on Cyclonus and Galvatron. Like MP44s awful looking tighty whiteys, don't let the limits of cheap animation (i.e. using white for what should be chrome, see also Earthrise Hoist) dictate bad colors. The OG Universe (and G1) Cyclonus dark purple is so much more tasty...

    Will be interesting to see if he's ER (seems unlikely, but maybe he's Thrust's wavemate), WFCprt3 or Studio Series '86

    Is this the first unpainted Testshot we've seen leaked in a while? I feel like maybe there was a Studio Series one not long ago, but we certainly don't see these like we used to.

    Maverick: Well, this is unexpected! I can't really make anything out of the robot mode, but the jet looks nice. I need a Skystriker repaint STAT!!!! Given Ectotron was an entirely new mold, I'd expect the same here, perhaps with some shared engineering... (heck, theirs far worse things it could do then lean into the Cyberjet Tomcat the way ER Starscream does the Classics Deluxe)

    Kind of surprised (and not surprised at all) that it's not a Super Hornet with the new film coming out (since Tomcats are retired) but that plane is just so iconic to the first film.

    ...and did I mention I need a Skystriker redeco? because I really need that.
