    Super7’s biggest mistake was not making that!

    Damn right, bonus points if they can make it transform like this work of art: Heavy/Scratch: - Megatron ratchet fusion custom

    Honestly, I was hoping the R.E.D line would handle this; the plastic already looks like it is melting!

    Two a-listers in one would have perfectly fit the near useless niche of those lines

    Given the box sizes and price points, I think they could give us Marvel Ratchet with a bunch of snap-on parts to mimic this. It wouldn't be picture perfect, but if it's just extra parts that don't have to transform, I think they could do a credible job

    I’d even go for a Megatron / Ratchet two-pack with the two of them melted together as the art on the cover. That’d be enough for me!

    They could probably upcharge this unholy fusion to Leader with all that additional tooling to attach the Megatron accessory parts and paint them all, alternatively! The extra budget from that would make 'em look bloody brilliant, and would be the complete package.

    Hella yes! The Straxus box does have him facing off against Blaster, after all. Hope this means he's coming soon, would love to see him, with maybe a little Scrounge packed in...

    A crackpot idea for a Marvel Megs two-pack I had was him vs Skids + Charlene

    If WFC wasn't so bad we would've had a show for it.

    Thankfully with RT gone now, Hasbro will have to go with an actually experienced studio next time they want to make a show for Generations.

    Studio Trigger perhaps?

    As with Blurr and Devcon, I think I actually prefer this mold to that of Galvatron...

    Unfortunately Marvel Ratchet isn’t coming anytime soon.

    That would absolutely have been an instant preorder for at least a couple copies had Super7 done that.

    So, does anyone think there's any chance of a later release of Straxus without the comic shading stuff? I don't think I care either way, but I'm curious, and I'm sure there are people who would prefer that over this (because it would fit their collection better).

    There’s always a chance. It’s unlikely for next year as no listings, but it could certainly happen if they see a demand.

    I'm unsure if Pulse exclusive stuff has an exclusivity period, but I believe so! They try to get multiple releases out of a mold, and I see a lot of people wanting him in his darker blues and reds

    Possibly, but I'm not taking that chance.

    If it sells well, they might do a black and yellow version.

    I hope Mark does some action shots soon, because they didn't bother giving us more than one angle.

    Maybe the comic shading is removable with a miracle sponge like the battle damage was.
