    I’ve always assumed these photos are never taken by people to be leaked to the public. These are hastily snapped photos that are sent to prospective buyers. It’s a “Hey, I have access to a new thing. I don’t know what it is. Do you want it?”

    It’s quickly snapped in a corner or bathroom of the factory and then sent around to find out if it’s valuable enough to risk stealing.

    I wouldn't mind Ironfist being a Hound or even Slammer Redeco, I just want him to have his proper G2 colors.

    Give him the IDW head sure, it's a nice looking head, but I honestly really like the colors on the original Ironfist (which to be fair, is really only the difference between tan on the original, and gray on the IDW one), especially his hot pink eyes and windows.

    I saw a REALLY cool take on the Firecons using the Allicon as the base, wouldn't take much retooling to be a Target 3 pack or some such,...

    That sounds like it could be really good with some retooled details, I never thought of that. Besides twolegged beastmodes much like the Allicons the Firecons are also short and stumpy.

    Definitely man. That redeco of Slash wasn't good enough for me. Maybe they can just give us deluxes with a brand new blast effect to represent their spark. And make the bots transform really nicely and be "accurate enough".

    Not that I am in favor of redecos but it always surprized me that Brawl wasn't redecorated into Guzzle with a new head. Since CW was all about repaints.

    I just tried but can't find the pic that was posted for the life of me (I feel like it was just randomly popped into a thread back in early June) It worked astonishingly well....made me excited to buy updated Firecons which is really quite a feat.

    As far as we know, it is a weaponizer, so it'll breakdown into weapons / probably need to partsform to transform.
    It may have some specific way to plug onto Metroplex, but I don't think we've seen it. Then again, Sixgun didn't really have specific mounting points or anything outside of 5mm ports.

    If you look closely at the picture, the arm on our left isn't slid far enough up it's peg.

    2. The official product description called out Slammer's ability to turn into a tower for T30 Metroplex.

    Can't wait to get this guy. Last figure I need to make my Metroplex complete. Might get a few extras to use as army builders, like I did with Brunt.

    I doubt that they are that sneaky about it. Probably take the pictures there on the production floor.

    We had a guy at our plant send out a part with a wang drawn on the side of it. Before the part got to the next stage of the line, he had already posted a "look at what I did" on facebook. People have no sense of reason anymore.

    Need to see better pictures of him though

    A Firecon 3 pack would be awesome! Way better than the worlds collide crap that force you to buy figures you don't want to get the figure you do want that have nothing to do with each other.

    He'd be perfect for Core Class IMO.

    I really hope we get a new Metroplex for all these guys. The original T30 figure is just really dated not only as the first Titan Class figure released at a point in time where screen accuracy and scaling wasn't something Hasbro concerned themselves with and lacks compatibility for the play patterns introduced in the Prime Wars Trilogy and the War for Cybertron Trilogy.
