    I definitely want Buzzsaw and Omnibots too. Siege came out swinging with Powerdashers. Surprised we haven't gotten all of these by this point.

    I'm interested in both customs, not regular Classic Mirage.

    Omnibots pretty much require new toolings, while the Powerdashers were based on the already extant Weaponizers.

    That doesn't change my opinion in the slightest. It's been 5 years since Siege. I'm surprised we don't even have one of them by this point. Powerdashers are the same level of deep dive. They wouldn't necessarily even need to be all new tools. They could be partials from several other cars we already have.

    Partials is still more tooling cost than new heads on existing figures (plus the Powerdashers seemed to hang around well into Kingdom and Hasbro might remember just how little people voted for them for that one Generations 2014 poll)
    Say they were able to pull some wizardry and get the Datsun mould to have the roof as the chest and chest as the roof that'd be cool but... idk about whiter Wheeljack or Autobot Runamuck, and idk where to even start with Overdrive. Red Tracks? Red Sideswipe? Looking at Takara's prototype I don't think its Red Prowl.

    Yeah, cannot help but agree it makes sense they have not done the Omnibots. Would like to live in a world with a new-tooling deluxe Ferrari-licensed Overdrive but they're all like misremembered versions of more popular characters too obscure to be anything more than a whiter Wheeljack.

    Loving Mirage

    They need enough tooling to get their third modes (ala Tracks). Otherwise what’s the point? They likely only have one shot at an update this decade.. do it right or don’t do it at all. Don’t strip them of the only thing that made them special.

    Yup my thoughts exactly.

    So in other words, you’re feeling Camshafted?

    Honestly I am hoping Buzzsaw will come with the Comic Color Soundwave redeco.
