    We wanted the dinosaur cassettes. And Blaster accompanies them.

    Would anyone care for Brunt repainted into the cartoon Centurions?

    If a retailer will bundle Soundwave and Blaster later for a good price, with the cassettes, I'll hold out on ordering Soundwave now and get them together.

    these are the only centurians I am interested in. The new one looks great, but my household is a cartoon appearing one so the new one has no interest in me ( other than the weapon pack ). So id be interested in these versions but I dont think a green repaint of brunt will look like these guys

    Now why'd you go and do that? I just bought the Centurion Pack (for $20, thankfully) and you bring to my attention this clean as hell trailer upgrade kit that I'm fighting myself not to buy until next week's BTTF Collaboration announcement.

    Jesus, I'm going to have dropped $100 just on EARTHRISE Optimus.

    These would have been way cooler but the one Hasbro gave us is fine too.

    Username since 2004 when I joined the boards way back when as Rotorstorm was my first childhood Transformer who wasn't a hand me down.

    Regardless of my username, the point still stands that if the powerdashers had new heads there is no excuse for Rotorstorm not to have one.

    But this time in the retro styled packaging, which is the true appeal of the current reissue line.


    Perceptor is also on the short list for the next release in this line no doubt.

    Those are my Centurions when I think of Centurions. When the Hasbro photo first showed up, I was like I thought Centurions were all green with a globe head. I had to Google just to make sure my G1 cartoon memory didn't abandon me and then researched the new one and learned it was from IDW which was easily pass from me. Yeah the weapon pack was also my jewel too especially Roller and Prime's blaster. Went to Hasbro Pulse for the preorder but changed in the last minute when realizing that Roller didn't sport his gray toon color, lol. Had I purchased the weapon pack, that will force me to buy ER Prime which I passed earlier.

    Everyone knows that Roller is blue. Grey is the wrong color and should be ignored and forgotten about.

    We got the dinocassettes, so it’s time to get Blaster.

    Which ones though? Personally I’d want Raindance, Grandslam, Beastbox, and Squawktalk, as those are the only four G1 cassettes NOT reissued in some way.

    Samples of Hubcap have been seen, so he's the most likely guess for GS13. Hot House and Megatron are both wave 2 molds, while Roritchi is wave 3 and Bugbite is (presumably) wave 4, so I'd order them that way IFF we think there aren't more surprised coming down the pipe like Tigertrack

    I knew he'd just be a Spinister repaint, since he was Selects and all Selects have just been repaints with bare minimum remolding. Its a shame he didn't even get that bare minimum (new head, possible missile launcher guns) remolding.
    I would have liked a new, more accurate (cockpit chest) mold. I never had Rotorstorm as a kid, but I did have his Machine Wars recolor Sandstorm.
    I get that Spinister needed a recolor/remold, and this may have been the best character to use, but it really didn't do him justice. Just like the Slamdance release.
    I may get him regardless, like I got Slamdance, just because it is a modern representation of a neat figure, even if it isn't accurate, and hope for an upgrade kit to fix the head and maybe add the iconic launchers.

    You'd be better off going ahead and getting them now while they're available if you actually want them
