    Im not saying a radical different head. But something along the lines of Bluestreak and Prowl. Their toys had the exact same head, but for fiction they differentiated them.

    I have a Siege lambo mold type already (Siege Red Alert) and I don't know this character. Very tempted though. I like the colour scheme and that black lambo type alt-form is very groovy.

    Pre-orders are up on UK seller websites too, (Staractionfigures and Kapow) which is nice.

    This guy and Tigertracks are gonna look great together. I’m a sucker for Black and Blue so this guy had me off the bat. Now all I need is a proper Earth-mode red alert (even if it’s a Walgreens exclusive) and I’m golden.

    You know.... If the Netflix Deepcover is indeed what has been leaked....

    He'd be close enough to represent an update on that G2 Go-Bot Sideswipe. That may have just convinced me to pick it up (depending on the "battle damage" situation, of course)...

    That's what I'm hoping for. The MPs did it right. I always hated the idea of male and female TFs based on the same design having identical bodies.

    Okay, that's Deep Cover preordered. That leaves Clampdown, though I definitely won't say no to Armada Wheeljack and G2 'Sunset Sideswipe'.

    And I'm still holding out for an Earthmode Sideswipe that turns into Spin-out, as well.

    An earth mode Sideswipe won't also turn into Spin-out, they have 2 distinct robot modes, unless you mean his vehicle mode looks like Spin-out

    I'm going to repurpose him as pre-beast wars Optimus Primal in my collection.

    Shattered Glass Sideswipe would be an amazing release for this mold. :D

    FWIW, it’s quite possible that the upcoming Earth mode Sideswipe & Red Alert have slightly different heads (like Soundwave, Ironhide, Ratchet etc have different ones for Siege & Earthrise), so that is probably your best bet. I’m going to use the Siege versions exclusively for Deep Cover (and Clampdown, when he’s finally released!)

    Im hoping that Tracks has his cartoon face for the retail toy, & the Tracks toy face on Road Rage (or a feminine one for Road Rage, & the toy for a future black Loud Pedal)

    It’s the one area I feel Cordon / Spin-Out miss out, I’d have much preferred the regular retail Sunstreaker to have the cartoon head (like he did), while the two pack Cordon / Spin-Out had the original Sunstreaker toy head (like the masterpiece figures did)

    These guys don’t need new heads as they didn’t have new heads originally. Any change would make them less accurate and therefore wrong.

    While I do agree they don’t need wholly new heads created for them, in instances where there was a difference between the original toy & cartoon face (like Tracks, Mirage, Sunstreaker etc) it’d be great for the cartoon head to be the regular retail toy, while the diaclone selects/exclusive deco gets the toy head. Not essential, but it’d be great for the fans.

    Deep Cover ended up in my stack at tfsource.com. So looks like he’s coming out sooner then later...
