So what I was thinking for the new Pretenders.
Im thinking the energon monsters will be maybe the energon terrorcons from Energon, Core class divebomb and battle ravage, deluxe cruellock
Great question, unfortunately this is one area I don't have any insider info on.
No worries happy to help where I can.
I'd be pretty happy either way. Wouldn't mind seeing some of the more monstrous Pretenders reimagined as Weaponizers either.
Iguanus as in the missing fossil? Very cool.
With any luck we will FINALLY get a Generation 2 comic-accurate Jhiaxus. Poor bastard has gotten the shaft worse than almost any other Marvel comics original character. Sure, he's gotten more toys/mold uses than Straxus (my personal favorite Marvel US original character) but Straxus at least got his own mold.
But, wouldn't that mean they aren't really pretenders at all? Unless of course they only pretend to be Pretenders.. ha.. ha.. ha..
I don't understand what for they are coreclass then.. they might as well do deluxes and voyagers in the asthetic of the pretenders like they used to (Thunderwing)
Pretty much Hasbro is continuing their trend of making new Pretenders that aren't actually new Pretenders.
My guess for Core class is because Pretenders are typically depicted as being smaller bots (or they just needed to fill in more spaces in the Core price point).
Watch them make G2 a Selects.
I just want to say as someone who was HORRIFICALLY TRAUMATIZED(I kid, I kid) by the removal of the entire G1 team members, that having a "Wild Rider" right after Dragstrip is such a good work. I don't care if Hasbro wants to add other team members into this but launching with the original G1 lineup really is the right move here. Just get out the Stunticons, then if you wanna add "Newbie nobody" afterwards, full speed ahead!
Rats! Oh, well. At least Iguanus’s more obscure G1 incarnation is getting more acknowledgement.
Well it's either BW Iguanus, or maybe we are getting Prime Master style pretender shells again?
Really weird we are getting 2 Legends Shockwaves - one must be a Movie version, but why would they be making one at that scale? And I am unsure if I want another G1 Shocky at this size when the CW Legends is perfectly serviceable.
Jhiaxus would be awesome if he is G2 comic accurate. Never liked the orange-grey Armada Starscream repaint nonsense. Hope this means the way is clear for some classic Marvel comics characters like Xaaron and Straxus too. (Titan Class Spanner when? )
Apollux claims it's the Pretender Iguanus. The organic lizard as a robot mode and he transforms into a bike like his original inner robot did. The original post is a few posts back, last page or so.
Welp, the good side of this is that BW Iguanus might eventually be released as a Deluxe figure instead to be properly retooled into Megalligator.
I mean, how small were the original Pretenders? Because I thought if they were like really small, they could make them core-sized inner robots with slightly bigger pretender shells, but your suggestion might be more realistic?
Core-class Pretenders was an idea I was totally for, assuming that the shells would be separate deluxe/voyager releases. But cramming the shell and inner robot altmode together into the core-class pricepoint? Yeah, not so much.
No idea who jhiaxus is but cool name I guess
Cool we’re getting core seekers but what the hell is up with studio series core shockwave. Are we getting small studio series scale now or something? Assuming this is the bumble bee one why not a voyager then?¿
Good lord I can\'t wait for these reveals to start rolling
Wait a minute I just realized Wildrider is in here! New Combiners?! Hopefully a lot better than CW?! Yeahhhhhh!!!
Ngl with the latest sick stuff announced and little to no bayverse leaks or reveals I’m starting to lose interest in new bayverse stuff.
