    Incredibly, the Military Patrol do reuse parts from the battle Patrol: the grey frame used for Topshot's Gun, upper legs & heel spurs and Flak's handle and upper legs.

    However Bombshock has Topshot's Gun & heelspurs, but Flak's upper legs while Tracer has Flak's handle & Topshot's upper legs.

    Quite why the chest is not the same as Flak's remould .... not see a front on close up of Tracer in the display

    Wow, good eye! Glad they put more effort into these guys than just simple repaints.

    We don't need any combiner remakes for quite a long while.

    Hey, does anyone know who the new Titan is? Was it insinuated or actually stated? I couldn't "pick up what was being put down" when they mentioned the head master.

    No.
    ok, maybe an accurate rendition of Motormaster, but the other 6 (yes im counting Offroad and Blackjack)are just fine as-is.

    The only combiners I wanna see in Earthrise are Raiden, Monstructor, Dinoking, Road Ceaser, and G2 Defensor

    The upper legs swapping fooled me in the renders. Wasn't till I saw the heel spurs and Bombshock' gun

    Here's a closeup of Bombshock showing the distinctive pattern on the underside of the gun from Topshot and the front of Flak's legs

    I understand. Combiners have been a bit disappointing. Well, for me, just Menasor

    Yeah, like those too!

    don't know if someone said it already, but it probably not prefered to switch hand, especially since the hand has moving fingers

    Yeah, same for me, and not just Menasor. The Constructicons had all kinds of problems and I didn't like how Superion looked. I'd take new versions, but that's probably not very likely.

    I'd love it, it would even fit in with the whole weaponizer aspect.

    Only ones we need are Menasor and Computron though, the CW Combiners and POTP Combiners are practically perfect

    Completely off topic: the only Scottish I know I learned from Trainspotting. I'm hearing Begbie when I read your posts. About right?

    Honestly, I'd prefer if everything were scaled like the old Cyberverse lines. Legion for regular-sized bots, Commander for the bigger guys. They're the only ones that actually look decent with the City Titans, so I'd love to see this scale return.

    you're fine with CW Superion? You don't find him at all disproportionate?

    Because Minibots aren't Micromasters?

    I'd like legends if hasbro made them like how 3P are making them. Scout and all the different types of "masters" are fine by me.

    Official pictures just went up on Facebook. I hadn't noticed before these that Cliffjumper's bazooka can form hydrofoils. Nice touch.

    What bothers me is his scale/size and if this is HasTak's way of phasing out the Legends class figures.

    ......I mean we finally got a decent Legends class Brawn in last year's line and now it's likely this CJ is taller than him and the other Legends figures I've built up throughout the years with no intentions of ever replacing.

    Point being I might skip this CJ and just swap the head on that TR Roadburn. Especailly if this is HasTak's way of testing if we might all pay $20 for new CJ's, Bee's, Huffer's, etc.

    Starscream definitely lost the butterfly joints in the shoulders. He has a pelvis swivel, but not a.waist one. It's reminiscent of the CW limb-bots, it would seem.
    Overall, I don't see it as an upgrade over the Siege one. Cool for everyone that wanted an Earth-altmode, but I count myself as a bit disappointed.
