Skywarp's gonna end up a repaint of Thundercracker, I just know it. That and the repaint of Optimus will be all puke colored...
TRA CYBRTN DLX SKYWA - 81212- thundercracker repaint
TRA CYBTRN DLX UNICR - 81213-the new unicron. i hope he is awsome!
TRA CYBTRN SCT REPU - 81207-the new undermine repaint
TRA CYBTRN SCT SHOR - 81206- the new hovercraft
TRA CYBTRN VOYGR PLANETX S - 80919-soundwave or soundblast
TRA CYB ULTRA MENAS - 81198-menansor
TRA CYBTN LEADER MET - 81152-metroplex
TRA CYBTN LEADER OP - 81240*-an ugly prime repaint
Why does everyone automatically assume that Prime's repaint is going to be ugly. I really don't understand that mentality.
If you look at the repaints that Cybertron has been giving us so far, there's really no solid ground to base that argument on.
I'm sure it's just because it's Hasbro.
I wouldn't bet on a new Prime repaint - after all, didn't Prime get a new assortment no when he changed packaging in Energon? I'd be surprised if Cybertron didn't get a midway packing alteration like the last two lines.
Can't say I'm very keen on the idea of a Skywarp repaint from Thundercracker - the LOC's are intended to work with the giant planet toys, and he's already established as a Starscream repaint there. Isn't it a bit bizare to have him be a repaint of two completely different toys depending on the scale?
Nope, assortment and product numbers always remained the same after packaging changes in both Armada and Energon.
The only number changes for new packaging that I know of were Alternators Prowl and Tracks.
"TRA CYBTN LEADER MET - 81152"
I thought Metroplex would be a step above the Leader class figures. Oh well, saves me $10.
I remember hearing something about Unicron being a skull-headed deluxe and that this is the depowered version returning and beginning his assent back to being a planet-former.
I just hope it's cool looking.
Aw, no no no no no!!! Skywarp cannot be anything but a GF Starscream repaint! The colors are too perfect on that mold... They might look good on Thundercracker, too, but I dont want another floppy arm 'con on my shelf.
As for the rest... good to know Unicron's on his way, I've been eager to see what he looks like. Also good to finally have a size on Menasor, at least we'll get more Decepticon Ultras that aren't repaints.
As for Optimus... dear Primus, help us all... Unless it was based on Black Convoy or Ultra Magnus I have never once seen a good looking repaint of a Prime mold, not a single one, and now Hasbro's going to ruin the best one they've released in forever? What a waste...
Hey, if it's just "Planet Force Powered Prime" I'll save $40. If it's "Motormaster" or "Ultra Magnus" or "Nemesis Prime", I'll at least own a potentially cool repaint.
However, it sasy OP, which means just a Prime powerup is likely.
Bad news about Skywarp. I really hope it's NOT a Thundercracker repaint. I really don't like that mold. Wayyy too flimsy.
I wouldn't count an exclusive given away at a comic con as establishing him as that mold... what exclusives are part of the "main" continuity in the US?
Isn't there supposed to be a "sunstorm" LOC Starscream repaint? So if they release voyager Starscream I'd guess it'd be those colors.
I'd much rather have a Skywarp repaint of Thundercracker than another version of the mold with near 0 shoulder movement.
Anyone know if the Cybertron Soundwave will look as good as the GF version?
From the first pic I saw they took the gold chrome paint off his tail fins in robot mode but it was too small to check for any other paint ap changes. Have to wait for a better look at it.
is there a chance it could be the EX-02 repaint of Prime? with all the chrome n stuff?
We haven't seen any pics of the Unicron that's listed right???
No, not yet. When we first saw the test shots of Shortround, some people thought that was it, but thus far we haven't seen any pics of Unicron.
Hmmm... That's weird... Wonder why we've seen everyone else but him... Maybe he's just Armada Unicron in a CYB box...
Unicron was shown off at botcon. no photos were allowed.
No photos were allowed, but are brief descriptions allowed???
Picture G1 Scourge alt mode but as a tank and crossed with Unicron and a very vague resemblance of Bludgeon.
