    Wait a minute, I thought Mirage was just invented for us?

    Anyway, he looks decent. There are some oddities like the racing number only showing up in robot mode and the symbol only showing up in vehicle mode. I'm also not in love with moving the gator to the spoiler, but since his vehicle mode is so inaccurate they didn't have much choice.

    I agree that I would have loved to have seen them realize he needs a way to shoulder mount his launcher and include a piece to accommodate that. Especially since there were tons of complaints about it on the first release. It's one of the dumbest design decisions I've seen on a modern figure.

    What was that episode of Adult Swim's Sealab that had that? The way that character said that was always how I imagined the word said for every 90s 'update'.

    G2 was a special time for  me, Subce  had special needs  I  never  got into  girls &  Parties  since most   turned me  away, So I  focused  on what made me  happier toys.. G2 first collection I have  sealed &  loose. I heard Mirage  was suppose to been  released in 2nd  half of  1993, Replacing  Inferno. Just  like  the stunticons & protectobots  were 2nd  half of  1994. most of  my  sealed  G2 stuff I have  sealed I  got on sale back then.I  got the  combaticon & Aerialbot  limbs  on clearance  for  $1.50. A majorty  of stuff I  got  at  KBtoys  prices  sale G2  will  always have a  special place I thought  it was cool optimus  came with more stuff. I got the  mastermind G2  mirage  Will get this one  for sure

    Hopefully this means that we'll have a look at Miami Viceswipe as well.

    What they should have done is paint the entire upper half of Crasher's face black so that she looks like she has a cowl. They already deviated from the real McCoy's color scheme, they might as well have done that extra step.

    I WILL NAME HER MIMIC AND SHE WILL BE MINE
    I wish her face was both green and also used the toy head but other then that she's basically perfect and I love her.

    I would love to see that, but if i remember correctly, the line is made up of exclusively unreleased G2 designs so unfortunately we probably won’t see Blue Grimlock

    I\'m glad for the silver! I was afraid he\'d be like Toxitron Jazz and be in desperate need of a tertiary color to break up the monotony of his two primary colors!

    (man, Sunstorm, if we get him, is gonna have all sorts of deco options for Hasbro to choose, personally I like #2, straight up deep orange and white).
