    Ahh, got you! I'm hoping for a new Getaway/Lightfoot personally, he's a big enough character in Masterforce that Takara will want to make him, & I'm sure they'll want to do more than 'Chromedome in Disguise'!

    A heavy retool of Chromedome mold with his upright door wings and faux godmaster engine on hood. Yes please! :D

    Had a weird thought, what if they were to retool Cogman into a future headmaster? Would any of you be okay with that?

    Would anyone want the four clones to be repainted into different characters in different colors that aren't clones? Or is having an almost identical clone that transforms into a completely different alternate mode part of the appeal?

    For me the clone-gimmick is the appeal. I want them to be nearly identical but have totally different alt modes.

    well maybe one of the molds could be repainted as a familiar classic character and they would have a new character in the same color scheme from the other mold. I'm thinking of a Cybertronian Mirage from Fastclash for example; and Cloudraker would be repainted into new character Counter Arrow.

    Very tempted on Overlord, even though I have the hasbro one. Shall have to see how I feel closer to the release date.

    And the set would come with an extra piece of plastic allowing you to detach a different arm from each bot and then connect them to the new piece of plastic so that they are conjoined like in the comics.

    Liokaiser was a big enough character in Victory to warrant a Takara retool, but that didn't happen, did it? >_>

    Didn't happen 'yet' ;)  There's a whole new Combiner series on the way, & I'd much rather Takara take their time and get it right... Who knows what they have planned for the next 12-18 months? I can't wait to find out!

    I'll gladly buy a Takara Liokaiser and ditch my TFC one if they actually make the two new molds required for it.

    Double deluxe torso needs to happen.
    It is the key to so much bliss:
    Liokaiser, Monstructor, Dinoking, a new all deluxe Devastator an all deluxe Predaking with a new sixth member some day. (i can dream)

    Clone recolors would've been an easy way to get a Reflector out there since the retool of RTS Perceptor was abandoned. Just find a way to make a 3rd version that sortof looks like a boat or something that's sufficiently removed from a race car and jet.

    This is why it would have been better for them to be deluxes. cause you just have to add a recolor of UW Nosecone to recolored clones and you have all three Powerdashers.

    An official CHUG Reflector definitely needs to happen soon.

    I thought the Botcon one was nifty enough.
