    Can’t say I’d pick up Flame on his own, but if he was packed in with another figure like a decent Xaaron I may have to bite.

    Interesting that's it's going to be revealed by a special guest. To me, that says Judd Nelson and thus Hot Rod.

    I was thinking that perhaps the special guest will be someone who worked on the comics, like Bob Budiansky or Simon Furman.

    A yellowish hand with a dark red very pointed body part.

    Well, that rules out Blaster. If I'm very optimistich the yellow hand is Scrounge and he comes in a two pack with Blaster, but the red part is too pointy to belong to Blaster. A Marvel Hot Rod would be very welcome and he does indeed have yellow hands, but not the pointy red.

    I think it's like Straxus a Marvel only character. Wasn't the rumour something like a two-pack with Xaaron (gold hand) and Flame (red pointy)?

    And yesterday during the stream they talked about how the pitch for it was treated with surprise and "What are we doing here?"

    No, but it is a rumor.

    What mold do we think Xaaron will come from if it is him? If they want him to be deluxe height, I could see either 86 Perceptor or cyberverse deluxe Megatron. Personally, I'd like him to be a core so he can recreate this comic panel:

    I could see a pretty good Xaaron coming from Kingdom Megatron. Also, it would make sense for it to be Flame AND Xaaron:

    P.S. Blaster’s hands aren’t yellow in the comics

    Based on the reddish-orangeish pointy shoulder pauldron, I think it's going to be Flame. The yellow hand could be from him as well; maybe the mold colour for his fists is yellow. Or alternatively, the yellow hand belongs to Xaaron, who is probably the one intended to hold the seemingly-unecessary hammer which comes with '86 Springer.

    Jtprime did say this listing may be a two pack; we just don't know which two characters are in it. For now I guess it's Flame and Xaaron as retools of SSGE Megatron and '86 Preceptor respectively.

    Don't think Perceptor would be great, the shoulder cannon would throw off Xaaron's look. Honestly a creative retool of Siege Reflector wouldn't be too bad. The height is right, and the body shape works. Really a new head, chest, maybe shoulders and some sort of new treads would do well.

    Breaking news: I will lose my fucking mind if it's Flame. That would be amazing.

    It’s not a rumor though. It’s speculation on a tiny piece of art, so I figure it should be in the speculation thread. The mods haven’t moved it so I’m apparently wrong.. no big deal.

    And I absolutely positively do NOT want Xaaron as a legends figure because of one issue. He was full size any other time he appeared. Reflector would be my preference. Flame from Gamer Megatron would be my preference for him.

    However, the more I look at the art specs, the more I think that it’s Scrounge’s hand we see and the red is from Blaster. All I know is that it’s not Ratchet and I know that he’s not coming anytime soon….
