I mean look at all the stuff Overlord did and he still got a toy
None of what he did in the comics has any relation to the toy. There’s nothing overly violent about the toy.
Exactly, even if we did get the DJD they wouldn't be comic accurate and ond one of the most important aspects of their entire edgelord serial killer squad aesthetic would be gone.
The difference though is that A) He already had a toy and a fictional presence before IDW even existed and B) his altmodes are fairly standard fair especially for Decepticons, he's just Bllitzwing split in two. But the DJD wear their sadism on their arms in a way that kids, and more importantly their non-IDW consuming parents will notice and if the kids wanna know who Tarn, Vos, Tesarus or Kaon are there's only one place to look right here:
And exposing kids to that is the kind of PR a multinational corporation wants.
Oops put the tank mode of impactor twice instead of the robot
I want Rung so I can literally crucify him.
Is he dying for the sins of the wreckers?
One of many
I personally wouldn’t care if they did the DJD and just gave them vehicle modes instead of torture equipment. More playability. Or they could give them “submarine modes” in addition to a regular vehicle mode.
I mean... I'd buy samurai Tarn
Transformers : "It's for the Kids".
Crikey and I thought Star Wars was plenty enough Torture P*** already.
Thanks for reminding me why everytime I find out more about IDW Transformers - much as I do with Windblade - I wish I hadn't.
Rung didn’t have a toy and the one place for info about him is the same comics run as the DJD.
If you’re doing research, you’re probably old enough to handle them.
If Hasbro wanted to overshadow the IDW DJD, they could just add the DJD to Cyberverse or throw together some lore where Barricade is chief law enforcement officer for the Decepticons and the DJD are his bumbling deputies.
Yeah, but Rung is in every issue except the Scavenger ones, the DJD are only in like three or four arcs. Plus this Rung isn't exactly what we all had in mind when we thought of a Rung toy is it? Don't get me wrong I'm happy to have him, but we all wanted a deluxe,
Anyone know when these might be up for pre order?

We can finally confirm their numbers:
44 - Singe - Air Force, Artillery, Raider
45 - Rung - Ground Command, Artillery, Private
47 - Direct-hit and Powerpunch - Ground Force, Artillery, Raider
Anyone managed to make out the silhouette on Rungs packaging??
With their hunched posture and the shoulder cannon, if i had to guess id put my money on Brunt, but then it wouldn't make a lot of sense to have it be a silhouette...
Also, on a side note, as a guy who isnt very fluent in the comics, can someone give me the long story short on Rung and why he seems to be everyones favorite announcement right now?
Maybe I'm just biased and extremely hopeful but it kinda looks like Wheeljack to me. More than likely it's Bluestreak or Smokescreen as it kinda has the Prowl mold look.
I have most of these even though there have been times where I've questioned why I keep getting suckered into repaints/renames.
