    Shadowstriker's alt mode is very different from her cartoon version with a couple concept art touches. Her robot mode is Sideburn's. Just with her head. No way was she the primary use. Just hope the version of her that suits the mold and her sister come soon.

    Slipstream I'm expecting to just be a new torso and head. I think it's no mistake that Windblade has a much larger-sculpted more militaristic looking jet than her cartoon self. The cockpit is pretty discreetly hidden too, making Slipstream's inevitably faux cockpit stand out less.

    Shadow Striker looked like this Legacy toy from 2003 through 2010. Yes, she was also in a cartoon later and looked different. The toy is an amalgam of those two looks. And it incorporates Cyberverse cues (such as the entire alt mode and the sculpting on the groin area) that run counter to the idea that it's primarily Side Burn.

    If Side Burn's toy is indeed only a head swap, he's going to be Side Burn but with Shadow Striker's altmode and groin.

    Oh, and the wheel hubs being just over her shoulder. That's another Shadow Striker-specific visual that the toy has that doesn't match Side Burn.

    Yeah the robot mode is clearly just her TFCC design (aka Sideburn) with her Cyberverse head and deco. Alt mode I still don't really know what it's trying to be. It seems like it's trying to primarily be Cyberverse Shadowstriker with maybe some aspects of a legally distinct dodge viper?

    Look at those big red Cyberverse Shadow Striker hubs on those giant wheels.

    That's not a Side Burn detail.

    Which is also Sideburns mold in the beginning. It all goes in a circle to Sideburn.

    If she’s the primary use then even more disappointing that toy is. Was the primary use and looks nothing like her in the show.
    Looks cooler

    imo the Shadow Striker mold is basically a perfectly dissatisfying compromise between being Cyberverse Shadow Striker and being OFTCC Shadow Striker/RID Side Burn. maybe it wouldn't be so bad if the vehicle mode proportions weren't so fucked

    We are definitely going in circles, yeah.

    "Legacy Shadow Striker is an amalgam of her first toy and her most recent look."

    "Her first toy was Side Burn."

    YEAH I KNOW, I JUST MENTIONED IT, IT'S IN MY PREMISE

    But what does Miami have to do with all this, that’s the true question

    Yeah, it’s a literal car crash between the two designs. In robot mode (aside from the head, duh), the wheels are on the back on her shoulders, which is on the CV design, just facing the wrong way. The chest is at the right spot, but again, facing the wrong side. The alt mode is also shadowstriker, but the proportions are now fucked beyond belief, there’s elements of the CV design, and a very futile attempt combining SOME elements of the dodge viper. For instance, the minor spoiler on the original is now a spoiler that, if it was actually used as a real spoiler for a real car, an anti-spoiler.

    I’m not a car nut nor a gear head, but dear lord the alt mode is so bad even ignoring either source material.

    It’s just a bizarre mix of two designs that are water and oil design wise, no wonder why Mark said she was delayed internally for a few waves and it turned out like… that

    The white Magneous, do we have any additional details?

    My mind went here immediately
    1000008373.jpg

    I'm assuming the boosters will form a rocket hammer.... If the hammer persists in this set (Magneous' standard hammer looks like it's missing something vital)... If not guns. Is this confirmed to be a single release?, because we're definitely expecting one with Leader Thundertron, if the Megatron pattern persists.

    Nucleous, I tried to figure the reference but I think it's just Granite or Marble

    Hastak seemed to have gotten burned on the original Side Burn and had to license the Viper for the repaints. I wouldn't be surprised if they're a tad afraid of getting anywhere close to the Viper again for Side Burn specifically.

    Seems to be a Ferrari F12 with a fucked up rear end.

    The only problem I have with Shadowstriker in car mode is that the rear end is just shit and the roof is too short and small.

    Yeah but it's been 23 years, and Chrysler has changed ownership like 3 times. I can't imagine Hasbro'd be any more scared to take a "similar to but legally distinct from" Viper than they would a not-Ferrari.

    Worst thing about this is that any RID 2001 figure until now has been pointless and won't fit with the upcoming Omega OP.
