    I was thinking you’d do something like that.

    Unfortunately I didn't know shit about the Wreckers until LSOTW, so the IDW version is the one that looks like Impactor to me. Thankfully the reveal of the other Powerdashers means that I'll be getting this set, but I'd probably have been fine with the Marvel head. I have read the Target:2006 paperback, and I have both prior official Impactors, so I may get both just so I'm 100% on official Impactors. I still want that Metal Slug styled 3P one someday too.

    Your Avatar goes perfectly with this comment. :D  I keep hearing it in Prime's voice.

    Thay colourscheme is so good and that headsculpt is amazing... but that damn Decepticon insignia completely ruins it! I mean, I'll still get it because it's Impactor... but it will always annoy me.

    Another reason the Marvel one is more appealing. Although I guess you could buy both and swap parts to get your ideal Impactor.

    I'd be nice if someone like Dr. WU would release the IDW Impactor head on it's own. Or with an extra accessory or two.

    The Decepticon symbol doesn't bother me. I've got an assload of spare Autobot stickers from various things, some paint remover to get rid of the symbol and I can put it on in a better location anyway.

    Where can we get the blast effects that are plugged onto these figures? I've seen a few packaged with Targetmasters, but surely Hasbro knows we need a ton more.

    Just the Battlemasters, unfortunately. Well, and Omega Supreme.

    That's literally the only way to get them, officially. I'm honestly surprised some of the 3rd parties haven't jumped on this yet given it's a universal peg system.

    And that.

    If we go by the percentage of how many actually buy the comics, he is looking at about a dozen people at most.

    I saw a Facebook post that TonTon was at SDCC and stole a bunch of stuff, might explain how he got this months ahead of release, haha just kidding I don't think he stole them.

    Can't say I favor that Impactor's head but I do want Mirage as well so I guess I'll just get him as my main impactor.

    So when this comes out, anyone want to swap Impactor heads with me ? :) 

    I'm getting the three pack but I'm more Marvel than IDW

    Literally the only thing better on the “Marvel” one (although I personally don’t think it looks much like Marvel Impactor either) is the emblem. Everything else is better on the 3-Pack version.

    The hazard stripes and IDW head imply it was inspired by the fact that Impactor was a friend of Megatron when they were both miners. Impactor getting involved in a bar fight and Megatron’s resulting incarceration and assault by Whirl helped lead him down the path that would eventually turn him into the Megatron we know.
    The thing is, though, Impactor was never a Decepticon in the comics. The whole “Decepticon” thing is just made up by Hasbro to justify them being a battle pack.

    Little rubbing alcohol and an Autobot emblem and I'm good. Him being a Decepticon I was going to explain away as him being undercover if I got both :)
