    TRANSFORMERS GEN SELECTS SMOKESCREEN DLX AF CS (MAR198117)
    From Hasbro Toy Group. This special edition Generations Selects WFC-GS06 Smokescreen figure portrays the classic G1 character with a G1-accurate head sculpt. Figure converts to a Cybertronian alt mode in 14 steps, deco'd to reveal how Smokescreen would have looked on Cybertron. The deco incorporates Cybertronian numbers into his classic exterior. With this Smokescreen figure, fans can add to their Praxus-native collection. Smokescreen joins Barricade and Prowl (each sold separately, subject to availability) as the third Praxian character designed in his native Cybertronian form. The Smokescreen figure comes equipped with a W-45 Acid Pellet Blaster accessory and 2 W-50 Volt-Beam Cannon accessories that can mount on his shoulders or the hood of his vehicle mode.

    Huh Intresting his number is WFC-GS06, Combat Megatron is WFC-GS01. The power of the primes selects figures don't have numbers so far meaning there's 4 more wfc selects repaints we don't know about most likely (one is rumored to be Redwing)

    So far this is the selects line up.

    Power of the primes:
    Ricochet
    Red Swoop
    Star Convoy
    Snaptrap (teased)

    Titans return:
    Super Megatron (teased)

    WFC:
    WFC-GS01 Combat Megatron
    WFC-GS06 Smokescreen

    rumored: Redwing

    They were not advertised as apart of the selects line though they had a 35th anniversary subline packaging.

    They had the perfect excuse to retool the chest/alt mode to be boxier and better match the rest of the body.

    Nope.

    It\'s nice they gave him both the shouler cannons and his gun. I wonder how Hasbro picks who to give the shoulder cannons and guns since Sideswipe didn\'t have his but all the others seem to

    I'm content with my Universe Deluxe still, but at least this means he won't be taking up a slot in WFC 2 or 3's mainline deluxe offerings as an obvious repaint like I thought he would be. Happy for folks that want a full set of Datsun Dudes in this mold though, I'll be grabbing Barricade only right now.

    Maybe because this guy is just a retool while Sideswipe is, at least for now, a unique mold?


    At least that's how I see it.

    Yes! Want no need right now. Between him, Prowl, & Barricade I just need Bluestreak to complete the set. It will feel so good to replace CW Smokescreen on the shelf.

    And while I like Combiner Wars Smokescreen, it’s not a good representation of Smokescreen.

    Now, how long until we get Bluestreak?
