    Supposedly it's going to be the primarily blue background generic Sideswipe from the netflix show

    But they're not supposed to have new heads. If they had new heads they wouldn't look like the characters they are supposed to be

    I hope they re-release Sideswipe, et al, sans [email protected] damage paint, even if it's a selects exclusive.

    I would buy them all up in a heartbeat.

    I suppose they could be slight retools of the original heads, with a minor change (an antenna, extra nodule, different expression, etc), in the same way that they sometimes do with the seekers?

    For example, Red Alert could have a scared/paranoid expression?

    And that might look better for all I know. All I do know for sure is that I only want to buy one Deep Cover.

    If it is this guy, he'd look different enough to be his own character

    I'm spitting possibilities, probably the netflix guy but if it's a generic from the siege show they could give em a new name. Hence a backup idea if that happens and i wouldn't say a repaint of that new Sideswipe mold coming is anything close to reaching the clouds considering how much the siege molds already been milked.

    If they do that one, I hope he gets his own name. I also wouldn't mind that green and orange guy with the stripes/scratches. He's very unique looking.

    Don't know. It's been going on for a few days. I can't see my inbox or alerts without going into the boards first either.

    I love that shade of blue they used, I hope it's accurate and not the product of photo manipulation. I'm really hoping at the very least Toyhax will release a sticker set for us to turn Siege Red Alert into Clampdown, especially if the rumors of an Earth mode Red Alert are true.

    And a Netflix blue Deep Cover would pique my interest as well, I really like the mold and I'd get it yet again in a novel color scheme to use as a brand new character!

    It seems I’m not the only one happy with the blue that they used on him. I shouldn’t be this excited by another Lambro so soon after Tigertrack but I am.

    Preordered, along with Gigawatt and Core Starscream to qualify for free shipping. But really Pulse needs to work on keeping stuff in stock longer. I'd've far rather bundled Deep Cover with some Wave 3 Earthrise guys.

    I only buy repaints if they are Seekers or if its an on-screen character but I'm also seriously tempted by these Lambros too. I gotta give Hasbro credit for getting fan interest in these...

    Nice! I always liked his colors better compared to Tigertrack.

    Tempting, but the $10 shipping kills me. Comes to almost $40 for a $20 figure. I'll just hope BBTS actually gets it this month like their listing claims.

    In as much as I ordered all my SS 86 and the last ER exclusives from them, if you wait for DC to be released by them, it's either they go for cheap or jump up in pricing. My Cyclonus from Amazon was $29.99. Now he's $ 59.99+

    How could you forget? Remember, he’s always Alert (remember to bang your forehead against Optimus Prime’s metal feet for the joke to take its full effect).

    I noticed that too. It's weird.

    Anyways, it's nice to have an official reveal.

    Also @Black Convoy there's a typo in the new deepcover article's title.

    Is that the 367th time they're using that mold or the 567th time?

    P.S. Can't wait for the 785th repaint of the same mold.

    P.P.S. No direct link to the boards within the article SUCKS. It's harder for me now to rant about anything and everything. Jeez...
