    Exactly as Windsweeper II suggests; Kup being reused as Orin Pax means, taking the TR design budget into consdieration and making some educated guesses, that the chances of getting Crosshairs are more remote. I'd love a unique mold Crosshairs, but I'd rather have a Kup retool than no Crosshairs.

    Blows my Ironhide theory out of the water.

    Though, i am thinking Tribute might be a Hascon thing.

    At least it isn\'t Crosshairs. I kinda got rid of my Generations Orion Pax, sadly. I dunno if I should get the Generations one again or get this one. Also, Hasbro please make the Autobot Powermasters and the remaining Monsterbots. Seeing this as Orion Pax is already giving me hope.

    Because one bad update is better than nothing, which looks like what Hasbro is offering here. Maybe you should look around and see how many updates the various original TM characters like Misfire/Triggerhappy/Crosshairs have had before TR, people take what they can get.

    Fings crossed that "Tribute" is the Hascon equivalent of TFSS/TFCC then because if so the odds for a Kuprosshairs in TR skyrocket.

    Orion Pax is the next figure in Hasbro's range of straight repaints that have a new face following on from Breakaway, Krok and Quake.

    Not really. The only thing this figure has is being taller, the last Orion Pax had better articulation, a more interesting set of weapons and much more style.

    Generations Orion was a fantastic figure with a very flawed alt mode. His truck mode blended futuristic cybertronian style with 1950s style truck lights and 1990s front bumper. Honestly I love the figure but I'll like this one more.

    Is this truck mode smaller than Titans Return Chromedome/Breakaway?

    Well it's turn out to be Orion, and not Crosshairs. Also the Transformers Tribute sounds more of a Fan Club than a Sub-Theme line.

    Transformers Tribute could be a Hascon thing.

    Especially since there was constant complaining about Getaway being a straight recolor of Chromedome and that was just the worst thing in the world, according to some.

    Darn. I was hoping for a "war dawn" styled head. But it makes sense they would do this for the animated nod in generations.
    Preferably, I wish they'd include both heads though. Original Pax never got any kind of accurate sculpt done previously. It'd be nice to have that figure to go with the Aerialbots.

    We sure that this isn't the Japanese line only? So Hasbro's version could still possibly have a different head?

    Orion?
    Why not Dion? This mold screams Dion.

    Hardly.
    Generations Pax was a great figure.

    Because E-Hobby redecoed Kup into Orion once upon a time, and this mold is paying homage to that mold reuse.

    Dion should be the headmaster. Or Optronix.
