    I'm glad i was told that was Ultra Magnus. Cause I would never have guessed that was Ultra Magnus

    I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be a suit of flight armor over his regular gear

    It’s pretty clearly Ultra Magnus.

    After further inspection AND already knowing it was Magnus, I can see it based on the head and shoulder 'towers'. But in no way would I say that its obviously Magnus.

    He can't deal with that three times faster!!! All I see the zig-zagging bursts and I get a Battle of Loum flashback.

    Huh. 35 years and I don't know that I've ever seen anyone give the Deluxe Insecticons the small Insecticon color schemes before.

    -ZacWilliam, nothing wrong with it, just surprised it hasn't happened before. Neat that the Deluxes are there at all...

    The Transformers/MLP crossover just keeps reminding me that we have yet to get a WFC-styled Windblade.

    I just noticed that. Now I need Deluxe core class Insecticons in these colors, too.

    because WFC has primarily focused on characters from the original cartoon aside from micromasters bases but that was due to cross playability with micromasters, impactor who was a fan vote and rung which was put in the cheapest size class. There’s no mold that can be used for her in a selects line which is for more obscure characters so there’s just been no place for Windblade in this trilogy. She’ll probably be in line for a new figure post WFC. She has technically only had 2 figures in generations in 7 years. Starscream has had 7 since T30 which will be 8 going into Kindom with his core class figure.

    That answer is not good enough.

    Windblade has shown up in 3 different animated series (5 If we count each entry in the Machinima Prime Wars trilogy as individual shows.) Not to mention her numerous appearances in comics, including 2 recent crossovers and her own miniseries.

    The people running Hasbro have been pushing hard to make Windblade a character with a lasting Evergreen appeal. Hell, she has has 3 unique deluxe-sized molds (along with multiple redecoes) for toys since her creation not even a decade ago.

    So why is Windblade getting shunned in this trilogy when it comes to new figures, even when she shows up in the new IDW comic continuity?

    that’s the only answer I have so take it or don’t but complaining about not getting a toy on a comic thread isn’t doing anything. Complaining on any fan thread doesn’t do anything.

    you can insert any name into your complaint. What about needlenose? Bluegeon? Wreck-gar? The list can go on. She’s not getting a figure for a million reasons. Go play with one of you dozen versions you’ve gotten in the past 7 years.

    Great use of social skills in that last bit. If your goal was to make me want to ignore you from here on out by being rude as fuck, mission accomplished.

    youre the one who’s taking explanations on why a character isn’t getting a new toy and saying “it’s not good enough!”
