    I actually prefer that mold to the ER version (aside from its size) because it doesn’t partsform and transforms the right-way around (car cabin pointed down in ‘bot mode) - nothing about the CJ mold looks right (BBs a bit better, but still has issues, not the least of which is availability)

    So this Road Ranger is based off of an eHobby “G1 GoBot”. Basically Takara took some G1 minibots and packaged them in new colours and GoBots names. Huffer got repainted into a legally distinct Road Ranger. That’s what this is. Hope this helps : ) : )

    It'll be interesting to see if the next 2 releases come with a battlemaster or something. Tigatron with a Micromaster Stripes fromthe Ravage mold and Terrorsaur with a Buzzsaw from the Laserbeak mold would fit their partners.

    I think with Terrorsaur having the same sized box as Jackpot there’s a good chance that it does. Tigatron, who knows?

    Whether Orange Tigatron is a pred or not doesn't matter to me, he's going with Grimlock's maximal team alongside T-Wrecks (the junior member), Silverbolt (and hopefully Santon/Ironhide and Lio Jr./Prowl), WC Blackarachnia (currently calling her Spinner, but would like a better name), and Dracodon.

    I'm able to ignore insignia discrepancies on my shelves, I just mentioned making WC Blackarachnia a Maximal (though, there is a story behind that I have), so if they give Orange Tigatron a pred symbol I won't care.

    I also won't mind either a normal head or Mutant head personally. I kinda like his weird beak face on the package art and his little tongue sticking out, but since Shadow Panther has a mutant head, I'm personally satisfied on that front.

    Rgggghhh, really REALLY hoping and praying Amazon AU gets the Golden Disk figures because I REALLY want Road Ranger to go with Bug Bite - and fucking JACKPOT. FUCKING JACKPOT.
    Absolutely LOVE Action Masters, man.

    Missed opportunity, there. A chance to introduce one of the founders of the Predacons, who happens to turn into a robotic orange tiger, into a line where he turns into an organic orange tiger? Oh, Hasbro, you almost had my interest...

    I hope that it's Tigertron tomorrow just for the rage that will result.

    The Huffer mold is a really mixed bag for me, but Road Ranger at least has some nice colours. I'm not a fan of the colours and probably weak paint on Puffer. I'll have to see how I feel when these actually go up for sale, but that Huffer mold is just so... wonky.

    For how many times they reuse the Siege Sideswipe mold, at least that mold is actually good!

    So see you all tomorrow, assuming tomorrow will be Golden Disk Tigatron Reveal.

    Most likely Tigatron from what I heard. Terrorsaur I hope is Thursday or Friday, but at the moment no way to confirm that.

    An orange tiger.......I'm in.
    I've slowly been corrupted into BW, so I'll also be getting Terrorsaur. I mean, he's a freaking Pteradactyl. :D
