    It would be funny if Voyager Metalhawk was just a pretender shell for the POTP Metalhawk.

    Is there potential this could be an IDW Metalhawk?

    As a voyager it would make the most sense for it to be IDW. But I still am hoping for a Pretender G1 version. We shall see.

    I am 99% sure this is going to be Jhiaxus retool cuz there is very little they can do with that mold and it would kind of work with the inner bots animation design

    I would really love new Pretenders, Masterforce characters.

    Voyager class robotmodes with core class articulated 'pretender shells'.

    Metalhawk is actually Micromaster sized and the reason he's Voyager price is because he's made out of diecast for G1-accuracy

    Also Big Convoy has pretty decent articulation, borderline up to par with modern stuff. He’s only missing wrists.

    HasTak could use Armada Starscream as the base for Metalhawk. I can see them doing a heavy retool of Jhiaxus for Armada Thrust. The jet modes are pretty much the same shape between Jhiaxus and Thrust

    Why? They gave us three opportunities to get the mold, not that long ago and there's no way they can improve on that mold.

    If they did do it again, it would be missing every spring loaded feature and the mammoth mode would probably still be static (see Rhinox).

    Agreed

    Now Leo Convoy was not a great mold, very flimsy and even the Masterpiece has some small issues, I different take is sure to be influenced by the Masterpiece, but perhaps a Hotrod result is possible.

    Ebay:
    Guessing it is just Armada Starscream or Jhiaxus with a new head.
    We will see if it warrants me selling the TRiggerhappy repaint.

    Ok but what about the people that don’t have the original figure but still want him? On eBay Big Convoy goes for a minimum of $90US without shipping when a new leader class would be $55. Be much easier for people to get him that want him that way.

    Also I have to say the thing I hate most on this site is when people say a character shouldn’t get a new figure when it hasn’t gotten one in years. It is usually because they personally don’t like the character or they think the super old figure they still have that most people don’t still holds up. Older figures are a bitch to find and even if you don’t like a character doesn’t mean it isn’t somebody’s favorite. I am not a fan of the Bayverse designs but I don’t go around saying they should stop making them in Studio Series. Every character should be made into a new figure.

    What makes you think a hypothetically new Big Convoy with his Matrix Buster will be 50? The parts count on the original toy alone for the transformation would just give Mark a stroke.

    They should do a figure of Alana in Legacy.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    They should give her wood texture like they do furry texture for the Beast characters.
