    The last one was also in an era before the only sloppy retools we had bigger than 5cm were Crosshairs & Slamdance.

    I'm inclined to agree with your logic re:modulator vs weaponizer, although I hope this is considered a legacy gimmick situation (from a certain point of view only - it's obviously not the initial gimmick).

    I mean, you can thread the needle that Smokescreen was released in Selects, but Barricade was about as low effort of a repaint as you can possibly get.

    Those patrols better be Barricade, Roller Force, Phaser, and Blast Master.  Fasttrack, Doubledealer, and Trailbreaker were a given.  Figured Snapdragon was either/or.

    - Another chance at Rung is good news. Or it would be if the stores near me stocked battle masters.

    - I hope they pick Barricade for the Race Track Patrol.

    - Astro Squad is a guaranteed purchase. Hoping for Moonrock and Missile Master.

    - Fasttrack is cool, but I was hoping for the other Micromaster bases. Maybe they're saving some for Part 3.

    To be honest I don't want a $50 Doubledealer. I never had that much connection with the character so HasTak would have to do a whole lot to convince me to replace the last one.

    And DD being an Astrotrain retool is worse case scenario. Granted it's iffy but having the $20 backpack of guns fits DoubleDealer's persona more than Astro's. But if it's something far better then I guess we all win.

    Yes, only for the poll. And they also spelled it "Runamuck" during the winning announcement. That leads me to believe that ths poll misspelling was to deliberately avoid conflating instances of voting with any instances of #runamuck that existed on Facebook before the vote even took place. I'm confused as to why a misspelling of that nature persists here.

    Any idea who Slitherfang is? I get the rest. I had to google Fast Track to get he was a minion of Scorponok. But Slitherfang I don't know.

    excited for the rest though.

    His full name is Runamokamuckabout. There are a lot of ways to shorten it.

    Good to see all of these listings.

    With Streaker, Trailbreaker, and Cliff, I officially only need a new Jazz for my updated '84 Shelf.

    Glad Rung is getting that reissue.

    Astro squad sounds Awesome, Let's get g1 Barricade as well. Hopefully, we can start getting the second half of these squads.

    Fasttrack just hammering home the Scorponok.

    Runamuck, Snapdragon, and the Quinasant all sound awesome.

    My body is Ready for Double Dealer.

    Surprised there aren't any Mercenaries yet. Looking forward to these guys though.

    Cool! I will gladly take a Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker. Now I only need a updated proper scale WFC Trilogy Jazz, I hope we get him. Especially because Jazz is one of the more important characters in the franchise.

    Is ER still doing a Quintesson or is this just the Cyberverse one?

    The battlemasters had straight repaints in retail but I understand what you’re saying but you have to count them because that have have a siege number just like any main character. They’re no different. Singe and his blast effect is a straight up recolor of firedive

    Oh please let Slitherfang be a spear of some sort.

    Snapdragon and the Micromasters all I can say is GIMME!

    I know it’s really likely Sunstreaker is a retool of Wheeljack, but it would be nice if he was a unique mold, or at least a drastic reshell.

    Yeah I was going to say those two are not on either of the main factions.
