    Of course, they do. That was sort of the point in the original toyline/show and so it was for Kingdom, at least implicitly. People forget that in all cases of BW continuities (the proto toyline of G1 sequel, the classic show and Kingdom) they are characters from the future. The technology which made the Maximals and Predacons is centuries after the G1 era. They're not supposed to look blocky and geometric as much nor do they have that retro scifi Floro Dery look.

    Because they still haven’t made new ones better than the G1 versions yet? >>ducks again<<

    They had better do comics colors this time. No idea what they were smoking when they made the previous one in RID colors…

    Also, if it has a toy, it’s canon. Toys trump all else, as Hasbro is a toy company first and foremost. If it shows up in any official media, it’s canon. Can there be conflicting canon? Yep. Because there’s more than one canon. In the toys, Energon Landmine and Landquake were brothers. In the cartoon, Landquake’s colors were used as a “powered up” Landmine. Same media, different stories. Both canon.

    Point is, that they didn't just made them blocky G1-y bots that turned in mechanical animals, they stuck to the original aestetic as much as possible. So I don't see why characters from other iteractions of the IP should get a different treatment.

    So I guess this is sort of like the old Universe line but with original molds, in a way? All we'd need now is a new Tigerhawk and SELECTS as Razorclaw (Know that he is Razorclaw!). Oh and people losing their minds arguing about a certain detail on about Tigerhawk.

    I'd unironically buy a volcano titan regardless if he's Unicron or not. Would a possible retool be an icy mountain primus?

    Apparently it was because the Universe toy was only refence available in Hasbro's archives at the time.

    Which is odd cause they could have just looked at the very Dark Cybertron comics they were including with the toys.

    What are those characters without a Continuity in the name? Like, what Soundwave is that?

    Chances are, they may just show the last wave of Kingdom, maybe some of the collabs like Draculus or Amazon Optimus, or some of the Golden Disk guys

    Most likely a repack of Core Soundwave.

    I just wish they would announce that date already. It will give me something to count down to. Also hoping it falls on the same week I'm visiting my sister and her new baby.

    while I didn’t like the designs I recently had a thought that the Techno-Organic designs of the Maximals could be seen as the next step in evolution of the cyborg look the Transmetal 2’s had going. Of course the CGI at the time just gave me the uncanny valley vibe so it put me off quite a bit.

    personally given the popularity of Pokémon at the time I’m kind of surprised they didn’t go for a more elemental beast aesthetic, but that might just me wanting to check off all the possible gimmicks they could do with beast modes.

    Armada Starscream - Bought On Sight
    Prime Bulkhead - Getting, I own the First Edition, but if Legacy Prime Bulkhead has his cannons and maces, yesss, If G1-fied like Cybertron Optimus Prime from WFC Siege I'm not getting it...Although G1 Bulkhead in the IDW Comics look like his Prime version.
    TF3 Laserbeak - Bought On Sight
    TF7 Wheelie - Hoping it's a typo and it's TF2 or TF3, if so it's bought on sight, if TF7 wonder if he'll be one of Soundwave's minions like in ROTF/TF2?

    I'd love Core Class figures of TF1 Frenzy, TF2 Ravage, TF2 Scalpel/The Doctor, TF2 Skidz and Mudflap, TF3 Brains, TF5 Mohawk, and TF5 Sqweeks.

    .

    I've decided on only buying Live Action Continuity, Aligned Continuity, and Unicron Trilogy Continuity figures.

    For me It’s just Armada Starscream I could care less about all the others.
    Skywarp not appearing in the anime was such a missed opportunity. Judging by what his bio says it sounds like he would’ve been a massive troll in the show.

    Also I don’t care what anyone says I’ve always thought Armada Skywarp had a badass design and I love that head sculpt.
