    Beamer would be better for that Windcharger repaint.

    Yeah, Slicks is actually more similar to Mirage than Crasher is.

    Here’s my Transformers X GoBots wish list:


    Leader-1 retooled from Earthrise Voyager Class Starscream

    Cy-Kill retooled from Studio Series 86 Voyager Class Wreck-Gar

    Tux retooled from Collaborative Ghostbusters Ectotron

    Snoop retooled from Collaborative X-Men Ultimate X-Spanse

    Spoiler retooled from either Deluxe Class Sunstreaker or Sideswipe

    Buggy Man retooled from Legacy Evolution Deluxe Class Beachcomber

    Cartoon-accurate repaints/retools of Smallfoot, Treds, Road Ranger and Pathfinder, and also Bugbite and Bad Boy whenever they become a reality

    I mean, not exactly if we count the fiction-only ones. Rest-Q is a Porsche instead of an Ambulance, and Man-O-War is a hovercraft instead of a battleship. Compared to those discrepancies, a sports car instead of an open wheel isn't that big of a difference. Though I do think Slicks would be better as a Dragstrip or Mirage redeco, though preferably with a new head, unlike Crasher. As others have said, Beamer could be a good nameslap for the Tailgate prototype.
    This is what is in store for Buggyman, I really wouldn't get your hopes up for "accurate" Go-Bots:

    That robot design always unsettled me. Weirdly creepy.

    As hard as I try, I cannot bring myself to pay for this lazy cash grab repaint. If they had bothered to do some minor retooling, I might have bought it.

    They did.

    What exactly were you expecting? What more could they have done other than give Path Finder a visored face?

    They're pretty much exactly as they should be with a very small amount of minor discrepancies.

    Really? What obstacles prevent “accurate” GoBots from happening?

    IIRC, Hasbro owns the show lore, names, and some limited show likenesses. They cannot use the Machine Robo toy likenesses at all. Unfortunately for us, Gobots had some extremely toy-accurate animation models. A few characters, like Crasher, had unique show faces and so Hasbro can use that on Velocitron Crasher.

    The same obstacle everyone mentions every time someone complains. Hasbro does not own the rights to use accurate GoBots. They own the rights to the names and fiction, and that's it. Nothing else. Bandai owns the designs, and there is a near 0% chance Bandai will ever make a deal with Hasbro and Takara that they all agree on.

    Pretty much this. It’s these style repaints/retools or nothing. Lot of us prefer this over nothing.

    The question is, will he be before or after Bad Boy?

    So, does that zero out the chances of Smallfoot getting repainted red and blue just like in the cartoon?
