    I had that guy. He had a wicked alt mode but the robot mode was kinda headless. I used him as a Decepticon living computer who had no personality and just came up with plans. My friend had an orange semi who was pretty cool until you realize he had no head. :lol

    What I would personally go for is a repaint of the Prowl mold in red with a Firebird emblem on the hood...

    I will pick up this 3 pack just for Treds as I love the mold and it looks great in green. Will possibly keep Pathfinder but I will wait on pics to decide. I think I will plan to sell Small Foot as I'm not a big fan of the orange and red colour scheme on this mold, which is a shame as I think the head sculpt is great!

    So there are two more members for this odd sub group, that being a seaspray and beachcomber redeco, so if we get a new seaspray and powerglide by 2026, I can see them doing another three pack (or four pack with a new bugbite using the 86 bee mold)

    Bad boy is the only “true” one remaining. The others would be nice as they’re also prototype colored minibots.

    The DX Machine Robo figures were never featured in the Machine Robo anime. So, there is probably sufficient grey area to do an homage where the alt mode is similar with a similar deco for those guys too. The mere fact they won't have cockpit heads would be enough to distinguish them from the original toys, anyhow.

    I love Psycho. His sleek, futuristic car mode with the red/black/silver color combo gets me every time. (The orange semi is Staks, by the way.)

    This really brings back memories. I used to have a similar one which turned into a yellow Volkswagen Beetle; I often joked that it was an "evil Bumblebee droid" of sorts. Then I also remember having another one which turned into a silver car, can't remember the model, was it a Porsche or Datsun (colours were like ROTB Mirage, but instead of blue, there's red, and the car is entirely silver).

    The pack-in catalog back then also had pictures of a red droid which turned into a Pontiac Firebird with Datsun headlights, really wanted that one as a kid but didn't have money.

    Might be fun to see a digibash of Psycho using Legacy Cybertron Hot Shot. Or SS86 Hot Rod...would be nice to see a black repaint not Shatteted Glass.

    Anyone at Walmart spotted anything new in Planograms for Fall/Christmas period resets at all? Curious if these might go beyond web only exclusives.

    I think so, and after seeing the Legacy Deluxe I'm guessing it'll just be that packaged with the Earthrise trailer.

    I'm pretty sure it's just gonna be G1 Op in cartoony colors, like the other Retro line stuff

    Yeah, there's utterly no reason why they'd do the Legacy figure + Earthrise trailer in the Retro line.
