    I'm thinking about that myself. I can see them swapping out the tank for another jet even to help evoke Star Saber's alt mode better and have his Titan master represent his different gimmicks. Like for the TM body it can represent his brainmaster then in head mode it'll be Saber then once you plug the TM into the body the helmet flips down to make Star Saber. That alone actually makes him fit right into the TR line in that respect and it would be a huge missed potential not to include him since at this point we already got Liokaiser,and Sky Shadow incoming and with the rumored Deathsaurus in the future. It wouldn't make sense if we just have the three Decepticons form Victory and not include the main hero especially that he has a role in IDW and is still alive for him to make a big comeback.

    Yeah. That's about what I was thinking too. Swap the tank for a jet, and you're halfway there, and that is pretty much what Starsaber is. A Jet half and a Space ship half. His legs have wings in their design and his leg half is rather simplistic in design anyway. Which makes sense then why Takara did Lio Convoy with the A3 mold instead of Victory Leo. Because they want to do Victory Leo similar to the rumored Apex/God Bomber for their PMOP/Ginrai, as an upgrade to StarSaber however they decide to make him. Kind of makes me wonder if that might end up being the alleged/rumored Apex/God Bomber retool itself. Both do become backpack wings and new feet. That's probably reaching though, but who knows. They'd want to space it out a little bit from the MP release anyway. So that gives them time for Sky Shadow, Overlord, and possibly Thunderwing, and maybe metalhawk, besides the Greatshot and Sixshot molds. That is 5, potentially 6 leader class molds that would probably hit market before it anyway. So that puts them towards 2018 before they'd get to StarSaber or Victory Leo. And if they did MetalHawk from it, they could start the secondary jet retooling for him too, to split the cost between him and starsaber on amount of retooling needed for that completely new piece.

    All of this sounds very possible and likely to happen and if that's the case that'd be awesome. :)

    His carrier mode is pretty great, and could easily become a helicarrier with the fins folded out.

    His plane mode is literally the worst. There has to be an alternate way to transform it and salvage it.

    Is it worse then Prime's Jet or Astro/Sentinals Train or A3s "what is it?" spaceship mode???

    Sadly, with those exposed thighs, rear wings and tails facing the wrong way and gigantic lower leg block sticking up in the air for no conceivable reason, I think the answer is "yes".

    Ugh, what a wreck the triple changers are in this line.

    Crazily, the one that looks like it could work is the Megatron/Blitzwing mold. One of the few I actually don't really need.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I think you need glasses.

    Fixed what exactly, because Perceptor was fine as he was.

    A lot of strong reveals here and some must buys for me. I keep trying to reduce my purchasing but hasbro keeps making great stuff! I'm impressed with Brawn, Perceptor and Broadside. The monsterbots are not bad, and I will need multiple Gnaws. Good stuff Hasbro!

    Made his thighs white, fixed his eye colour and added his eyepiece, filled all the hollow areas, fixed the size of the microscope thing and moved it to the other shoulder and improved/recoloured his gun.

    that black shadow is going to be super hard for me to pass up.

    The way I am justifying NOT picking him up is, I have the takara deluxe one , and that if I dont get him then the overlord that will come from the same general mold, that I am getting, and my deluxe one will be different molds for each character, but man is it tough.

    Most of this stuff looks so good

    -Broadside : jet mode is the most disappointing
    -sky shadow : better making leader overlord

    Triggerhappy:
    Twinferno: Hun-Gurrr; Sinnertwin
    Perceptor: I am sure "Magnificus & Ga'Mede" will be one of the limited repaint (
    Broadside: Tidal Wave (I am happy that they remove all beast kibbles.) This mean the other two autobot triple changer will have a chance.
    Sky Shadow: This is a very mix bag. Plane & Tank: FlyWheel! The Jet mode is a Black Shadow. Base mode: Overlord. Robot mode: somewhere of black shadow and overlord. (You cannot complain too much.)

    Legend brawn: You already have Titan header. All you needed a body. Otherwise, Swindle?

    Look at the coming up figures:
    Tanker prime: Octane, and very likely ot have Nemisis Prime(Black convoy)
    Megatron: Blitz Wing
    Sixshots: GreatShots/Quickswitch. The unpredictable ones will be Shadowmaru.
    Getaway: It is a pass. It is a car with massive print job.

    Existing repaint:
    Alpha Trion: Leo Prime(Takara confirmed), Nemisis Prime(Cybertron), RazorClaw

    He's a closer take than the last time they tried it.
