    Hey Hubcap is pretty cool. I mean out of next years leaks one of the ones I’m looking forward to the most is a straight up G1 Skids so I get liking characters who aren’t the most widely adored.

    18 months ago, i would've gotten him (along with not gotten rid of my Stepper/Ricochet and I would've gotten artfire). But now I am married and I don't get characters that I have no attachment to. He looks cool and all, but he's a character I have no idea who he is aside for being an action master

    Seems possible that Tigatron could still be a Maximal. The wording says "Two beastly bots of unknown factions". With the plural on "factions" it doesn't really make it sound like they are the same faction, but rather could be two "beastly bots" from different factions.
    Or it could just be bad writing.

    Hrmm I want to like this, but the head sculpt is pretty bad and inaccurate, and I think the yellow on the car mode doesn't look great. It looks too much like Armada Wheeljack. Honestly they should have just left the car completely black, but I guess he would look too much like Ricochet.

    The reference, however, is to "their nefarious" scheme. Suggesting they're working together.

    Predacons would be "unknown" to these particular Autobots. And if Tigatron is a Shattered Glass take it'd be a nefarious Maximal.

    Shit... I hope you're right! I don't know a thing about either version's of the Character, but that Armada figure gives me "RTS Lugnut" vibes!

    I won't hold my breath but if it is that Armada version, then this will be the most excited I've been for a new Non-G1 character since Kingdom Airazor!

    I feel like Hasbro is going to do Terrorsaur last just to troll us:D  Jackpot looks great, I'm a fan of this mold so I'd get it anyways, but I'm happy to add him to the collection. Nice to see Hasbro doing a little hype up week, things have been feeling pretty stale, at least on the official side of things.

    The Laserbeak mold is barely passable as a proper Laserbeak update to me. It could be better though, but it's passable. Ravage on the other hand is so ridiculously poor as a figure in general, let alone a representation of Ravage. I hardly count that as "doing better" in the first place, let alone retooling and releasing it again. Siege Ravage is the ER Arcee of small TFs. And considering the already low quality of small TFs, that's saying a lot.

    But keep in mind that I have extremely high standards for smaller TFs like that, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Wow. Just wow. That is the harshest take I have ever heard on Siege/NF Ravage, and I tell you, sir!..

    ...that you didn't go far enough. That figure, like most modern G1 Ravages (except the one that came with Hound), aspires to be ER Arcee. :p

    It's kind of weird that they went out of their way to explain Sights's alt mode when the Pteraxadon mold can turn into a blaster. You can even plug the blast effect on the end of the barrel.

    I know people will rail against the number of exclusives nowadays (& rightfully so sometimes), but it opens up the potential to get characters like this that we would never get in the mainline. I primarily go for C all the way to Z-list characters (no Optimus for me yet, aside from the G1 reissue), so having these choices has been awesome for me.

    (I was shocked when I found out that Hubcap had never had an official update since his original minibot toy; since he was the "lost" minibot who never showed up anywhere, I was a bit obsessed with getting a new version. I was so happy when CJ was announced in ER, because that meant a Selects Hubcap was a possibility. & not only did we get him, but he was actually more faithful to his original alt mode than CJ was, since CJ had a spoiler & Hubcap didn't, which is kind of awesome.)

    Yeah I think the way exclusives have been handled isn’t the best. But I do enjoy all these extra figures we’ve gotten that we wouldn’t have prior.
