-sigh- This just makes me want that cancelled Cassy Sark Lugnut even more now
Now how would this compare to just taking Combiner Wars Rook and making a Strika out of it? I do like the idea of a Vehicon combiner, with Grand Maul Megatron as the head of course. Legends Thrust, arms could be Jetstorm and Obsidian, legs could be Strika and Tankor. Body would be a Beast Machines Megatron from Silverbolt?
I could see that. I'd rather have rook. AB as Vortex. Maybe Lightspeed as Thrust? (even if they use Groove)
I'm down for the Roadbuster repaint of this.
I think the Rook mould makes a way better Strika.
(Obviously, it would be smaller than Titanika though.)
I like the look of this a lot. I like her colors better than Roadbuster's. It's just a hulking bruiser of a bot and I dig that.
But this also looks quite a lot like the WFC/FOC Onslaught that Shapeshift Inc. is making, which I like a whole hell of a lot. I'm gonna wait till TFCon to see if Shapeshift gives us an update on their Legends Combaticons, if not I'll get this, because I think I only need one or the other.
I can't front if they even hint at doing a Roadbuster repaint - I'm in.
I think this is among the toys they designed to be able to be used as several characters with minor remolding. So Roadbuster, Strika and whoever else... it's sorta all of them.
I would lay some money down for a Roadbuster in a heart beat. If/when they do do him i hope they find a way to redo the back wheels into treads like he had in AHM.
Anyone know if they have plans for an Obsidian? Or should we invest in the botcon one to go with this?
I definitely want this mold. I already have enough Roadbusters, so unless the colors on Titanika are too garish, that'll be the one.
I'm interested. This is the only reason I haven't bought the botcon one.
This fills my need for Strika a lot better than the Botcon version, although I liked that one well enough.
I just thought I would point out that it looks like the leg wheels are the front 4. You can see her forearms in the middle of the back of alt mode, so the rear most wheels are almost certainly from her shoulders.
Your post got me thinking, her alt mode reminds me more of one of Dirt Boss from Cybertron if you added wheel guards.
I really want that Lugnut too, though the Depth Charge deco was the one I had the most interest in.
What the release time on this figure
I believe the official release time is "eventually."
Wow, this looks GREAT^^
A: I love Strika
B: MORE FEMMES
C: Nice mold overall^^
Its probably safe to assume her design is based on Guidos IDW Roadbuster:
More than anything else.
MMC just swapped out the rear treads for a set of wheels so her alt mode can have the 6 wheeled apc look. Also I wouldn't get too excited for her for a while still as she's currently not slated for a 2015 release. We might even see the inevitable roadbuster version before she's done.
I would love a BH Optimus retool of this mold.
I'm repeating the comment below because I wonder if you can "see" a way that I'm wrong. I guess for Roadbuster they could remold it to reverse the front and back.
Wow, this blows the FP and Hasbro Roadbuster designs out of the water.
