    that'd be great too. They could do a sequel pack with Bad Boy, Man-O-War, Buggyman, Rest-Q, and Bug Bite from the 86 Bee mold.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Buggyman, especially if he had a head based on that art. However, I think the current prevailing theory atm is that Ruckus from the upcoming Ruckus/Bludgeon Amazon 2 pack will be a retool of Beachcomber.

    Why is it I thought that there was a Seaspray made recently?

    Because new characters and new ones sell better than reissues. I wouldn't give a damn about a Cosmos, Galaxy Shuttle and Runabout three pack. But a three pack based around the old E-Hobby minibot set that, y'know, updates the characters after years? All in

    This isn't Cosmos. Its Path Finder, the blue Cosmos repaint. She's different

    As I understand it, the issue isn't Hasbro as far as these can go but Takara. Like, when the Japanese Megatron Origin reprints came out, they had to change Cy-Kill in those to a different colour whereas the regular one is fine

    Tonka Pathfinder was mostly a deep hunter/olive green with a silver secondary color. TF Pathfinder Blue Cosmos is ...night and day. TF Small Foot is at least somewhat in the neighborhood as is Treads.

    To be honest, I’d love to see Smallfoot repainted in her cartoon-accurate deco eventually, like this.

    I wonder if it’s even legally possible?

    That initial Pathfinder toy is totally gangster.

    Honestly she'd just end up looking more like Gears.

    Eh, not really. Smallfoot and Gears’ color jobs are essentially swapped.

    Oh that's great. We are getting a repaint of cosmos even though most people (me included) can't even get a regular cosmos. Thanks hasbro and your damn exclusive crap.

    This set is a YES. Hoping for more Gobots.

    If anything, the Gobots offer some interesting repaints... though I do hope they do more unique heads. Kinda a bummer that Path Finder has Cosmos's mug! :eek:

    But I realize that Hasbro isn't referencing THAT Path Finder. But this one:

    Which explains why the current release is less exciting than a proper Path Finder.

    Maybe you’re thinking of his TR toy? It’s been about 6 years since it was redecoed for Legends and the Golden Lagoon 3-pack.

    Was there a leaked listing for Seaspray or something like that?

    I've never had much of an interest in these Fun Pub minibots.
    However, I was thinking recently that since none of the Micro Change minibots have alternate colors these could serve that purpose.
    But I usually prefer MP scale figures for most of my minibots.
    So I might try to get this set, but I may end up only keeping the blue Cosmos.

    Feeling completely "who gives a schmidt" about this set. Aside from a new face for Gear-Foot, they are basic, mostly low-effort recolors, not homaging Go-Bots, but E-Hobby Go-Bots, which reference names and alt modes, and pretty much nothing else. I'm sure there are some really anticipating this set. They're more than welcome to any I would have hypothetically bought.
