Well, that's boring AF. Not even a new weapon.
Well it's needed, but they missed a spot on the thighs. Really needs something else with it.

Hi all, just a quick update.
Had a quick inquiry to Go Better Studios and they are planning the works for ER Ironhide/Ratchet feet upgrade kit. Just right now they are working on other stuff but it is in the pipeline.
I got the SL Core Megatron and Warpath kits in. I'll post pics later. The Megatron thigh gap fillers could get away with not painting, but not the Warpath ones. The clear red (although very smooth) just clashes too much with the off white of Warpath.
Good news is that these kits use their standard pegs (and not the janky tapered pegs on some recent kits), so everything fits.
How about a nice game of predict that upgrade!
Here are today's candidates:
Here are my guesses:
1. New flexible tail mace for Gnaw.
2. New horns for Slag in red and silver/gray.
3. Golden tail tip for Slag.
4. TV for Wreck-Gar.
Wreck-Gar is going to get multiple groups competing with motorcycle seats that'll fill in the back half of the bike mode. It is inevitable.
Sword for Slag is also a given.
I'm praying someone creates pieces to fill out Slag's pitifully atrophied hind legs in dinosaur mode. Even if it requires partsforming, whatever it takes, just somebody - anybody - please make it happen!
I don't mind the proportion of Slag's legs but gap fillers to close them up would be delightful. Sword is assumed, but in a set with the fillers or not will vary.
My money's on Schrödinger's Junkion kits. Even if one or more official retools are safe bets, there's going to be mad dash for alt heads and bits to capitalize on the chance there might not be.
Gnaw, that's a good looking Sharkicon. Unless there are egregious gaps, there isn't much to predict. A poseable flail tail over a solid piece would be nice but on the pure extravagance end.
I don’t know if it’s possible, but Slags leg can be extended slightly. With his waist being so wide and big, it makes his legs short.
The tail mace is flexible on a joint. I'd rather have his missing antennas.
Yeah I made that argument when it was first shown. Legs are way too short, torso too long. These shots look better, but it is still very off to me, like he's partly inspired by Animated's Snarl. Honestly while Slag is my favorite Dinobot due to my unhealthy Triceratops love, I never cared for the show model. The red head, the gray legs, with largely gray everywhere else isn't a great color scheme. The black on the toy let the color pop more.
I know it's anime-accurate but I don't like the long bendy spikes on Wreck-Gar. Maybe 3rd party can fix that too.
Forearm covers for Gnaw. I really wish they'd stop doing that.
Those are going to be tricky, I don't think I can see a place to fit a hinged one.
Gnaw definitely needs a tail with a bigger spikey ball on the end. Slag will definitely be getting a G1-version of his G1 sword and panel fillers, especially for his horns.
You can already form Siege Refraktor into a kind of TV. WG will also likely be getting his decelerator laser rifle and probably different sets of tires and heads. If those two screws in his forearm are all that holds it together, I'd love someone to take a stab at new forearms that telescope out a bit in cycle form to give him a chopper profile. That would open the mold up to possible kit redecos into (Animated) Oil Slick and maybe even Rum-Maj, especially if his pinned chestplate isn't too difficult to remove to replace with a different one.
I'm kinda surprised Hasbro didn't design Wreck-Gar from the get go to be more easy to dissemble with more screws and less pins. If he could be customized, they'd sell a heck of a lot more of them. Maybe the later wave Junkion will be easier to modify.
What about his Decelerator Laser Rifle?
If that TV shows metroplex I'm in. Then I have everything from the season 3 intro
Thigh fillers and hard plastic spike replacements for Wreck-Gar, fillers for Slug's legs so he can wear his folded up rear legs on the outside - better rear legs entirely would be nice - as well as a black head and flame effect, stick on horns for Gnaw.
