    So the Velocitron Blurr is just the 86 one in toy colors? I feel like that's pretty lame to be honest. I heard it was Armada Blurr, and I feel like that would've been a LOT cooler than just a very slight repaint.

    Can't really get behind that one at all, considering I already have 86 Blurr. Guess it's a blessing in disguise since I don't have to spend the money on it.

    Mostly looking forward to Scourge and Burn-Out now

    Personally I'm hoping for G2 toy colors Blurr if only to save some money.

    Yeah, I'm in the no Blurr, and every one else camp depending on Override's look. We'll see. I would've got UT Blurr for something different in part, but mainly to support our UT brethren. It's why I'm getting Armada SS, though I'll repurpose him as something else.

    Other than Blurr, I'm planning on getting everyone else, but hoping to get doubles of Scourge, Road Rocket, Cosmos, and Override depending on how much remolding was done to her.

    Cosmos is the only one I'm getting from the Velocitron line. Toy deco Blur is an odd choice considering the SS86 version is currently heavily shelf warming after a package refresh. I bet six months from now Walmart will have nothing in stock but a sea of Blurs and Bulkheads (even more so than now.)

    I'm a bit worried about being able to get Velocitron Cosmos and Override, but at least now I'm feeling pretty good about my odds of finding Burn-Out on the shelves since no one here seems interested in her.

    If Velocitron Blurr is going to be G1 toy colors, hopefully they update the vehicle nose to have a 5mm port so he can mount Targetmasters. At least that feels possible for him, while it probably isn't possible for SS86 Kup or Hot Rod to have TM compatibility in vehicle mode. As for what interests me from the Velocitron line, it is really Scourge, Cosmos (hopefully he isn't shortpacked) and Hauler.

    I hope we do get a subline that is more focused on Decepticons/Villains soon. I presume the Legacy Stunticons will be offered in their G2 colors, one set consisting of the limbs and one just beign Motormaster. I still think we should see Mercenaries like Detritus from Siege Hound. Maybe a weird Sharkticon repaint. I still want to see SS86 Wreck-Gar turned into Sickle/Cy-Kill. It should just need new arms & head. The "classic" colors would be perfect for Shattered Glass (those colors are definitely heroic), while green/black would be fine for Mercs. Another for SG would be Kingdom Primal with white fur (what "Nemesis Primal" should have been).

    I'm betting that unfortunately Velocitron will be very limited on remolding. All the WFC waves had a total of, what, 3 remolds? Elita got a new head, Bee a reshell, and SW was relatively significant. With Cosmos sucking up that budget, and everyone else being straight redecos, I wonder if there's much more than a new head in store for Override and Road Rocket. Boy do I hope I'm wrong.

    From what we've seen in the comics, Road Rocket seems to just have a new head and possibly a new bike mode front, so very minor retooling. I could see Override getting some fairly major retooling akin to Elita that would change parts of her robot and alt-mode to change the appearance enough to not look like a straight repaint.

    Of note, Netflix Elita-1 was more than a new head. She also got a new torso, new shoulders, and new whole front of the car shell.

    I hope you're right because Velocitron is the one sublime I'm excited for this year!

    I'm already ready for the worst case Override being just a head swap, but expecting it to just be a new chest and head and nothing too significant.

    I'm mostly looking forward to Black Convoy and Clampdown, I'm on the fence about Road Rocket because I'm beginning to suspect it's just going to be an Arcee head-swap. But Road Rocket's loss might be Knockout's or Cosmos's gain.

    We can already guess what most of them look like, @PrimeVsPrime needs to do Override or Cosmos first

    As someone already said, override really is all or nothing here. Either she's gonna be a Netflix soundwave style mold overhaul or she's gonna be a second guop, and to be honest I'm optimistic that the latter option would never have been greenlit by Hasbro or Walmart after the failure of siege's cybertron homages and given the renewed focus on faithfulness. I've been extremely worried about her ever since we first heard about her (and to be honest I think I'm close to snapping and becoming a full tooner for cybertron because of the long wait) but I'm still hopeful that we will see her next Tuesday and she will be acceptable.
