    JT Prime just said that one of the 2 red cards is likely Silverstreak, so I'm putting my money on Crosscut to go with Road Rage or Reboost. As much as I'd kill for Swerve, I think we would have heard more on Gears by this point.

    Yeah, I suspect Silverstreak is the first RED card exclusive.

    Crosscut or Reboost makes financial and resources sense, and both would sell. But things stopped making sense last year... so, Swerve.

    This is really really true.
    Don't do that. Don't give me hope.

    If Arcee looks like the new flamewar design this would make too much sense, so I'm gonna say cybertron ransack and armada "thundercracker"

    Hmm is Silverstreak one of the red card exclusives?

    If he is not my guess/ hope is:

    1. Crosscut/ Reboost (I’d buy either tbh)
    2. And you know what this is where Hosehead went lol.

    Think the skids repaint is more likely but who knows.
    Also I know most target exclusives come to Canada through Toys R Us, is that the same for red card exclusives?

    So I should have used some blue text on my original post about the Target exclusives but I’ll join in. Based on jtprime’s reply about Silverstreak I’m going to guess it’ll be Reboost or Crosscut. I think Diaclones are good guesses and Red Mirage is another good option.

    We would have a fuller picture of who is going where if we had the Amazon exclusives both for Legacy/Evolution and for their inevitable subline.

    That was the Classics version. As far as we know, the '86 movie designs were the product purely of Floro Dery's imagination.

    Honestly I hope we get Skids redecoed into every repaint. Burn Out (leaked), Crosscut, Screech, Reboost, Rollbar, the green quantum operative Skids (given a new name).

    Just give me all of them.

    That’s true. Personally I really enjoy the look of G1 Skids and with the hyper G1 look they’re going for these days I have nothing but faith in Skids being good.


    That being said the did release Kingdom Tracks. But yeah my opinion is in the assumption that it is a good figure.

    Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro just use the name Screech for the green Skids. Especially since I don't see them keeping both red versions of the mold from Diaclone. Especially since the only difference between Reboost and Screech is the color of their heads and a few other body parts since they both used the Crosscut tooling for the mold.

    Tracks is one of the few WFC updates that could have used some more time to cook personally. Otherwise, I think they've mostly been good to great updates.

    I seriously hope that Burn Out has a different face from Skids this time.

    Hmm… I thought screech was more orange… but if it is just a red then I don’t mind dropping it.

    That would be nice considering Burn Out is supposed to be female... or at least was piloted by one since Burn Out and Lift-Ticket were just Diaclone mechs in the FunPub continuity they came from. I doubt Hasbro will keep them as human-piloted mechs, but who knows?

    They both look red to me... though I could be mistaken.

    Edit: You might be right. But it looks more of burnt/reddish-orange so who knows if Hasbro would consider that different enough? I love Diaclone homages though so I wouldn't complain.

    That’s true, I was picturing it to be a more vibrant orange compared to the original to make it stand out. But certainly wouldn’t mind them dropping it from the “Skidsverse”.
