They should use this make this drawing concept for Scraphook a thing.
Lol imagine if Strongarm is indeed the R.I.D 2015 incarnation of her, but just a very extensive retooling of Scraphook with a new head, chest, legs and roof and including new weapon accesories and lightbar.
I'd like to see that happen so we all can complain about it together
When was the last time a car was a voyager though? Those are usually relegated to deluxes. I don't seeing that needing a voyager budget.
this confuses me, because if it's pulled off well, who cares if it's a new mold or not
Velocitron Speedia 500 Collection Override.
I wouldn't mind it but surely people would complain about the gimmick.
Eh. The gimmick was designed to be ignored for transformation on the Junkions. It's very likely that was done to make it easier to retool them into other none Junkion characters. If the retools are extensive and good enough it really shouldn't matter. Though you're right that some people woupd still throw a fit over it regardless.
Like Enderstone mentioned, Override, but even ignoring it being that recent I think there's the other factor of the car Junkion almost certainly being a pretool for Lockdown, and Lockdown would need a kind of height that Deluxe might not be able to afford him.
literally velocitron override, not even a year ago
and it might the voyager budget if it's an animated lockdown pretool
If the potential upcoming Lockdown is a retool of the low-rider Junkion does that mean Lockdown will be a weaponizer? :O
Height aside, Lockdown and his Junkion moldmate would both benefit from any extra weapons or tools or a large hook hand in the box. The more I think about it, the more voyager class makes sense.
I think lockdown will be a modulator
i don't mean to sound like i'm moving goal posts but
i was thinking earth cars. i mean as close to as a junkion can be to an earth car.
i was thinking they could do a 2 pack of him with a swindle repaint as well. they referenced this in Earthspark, so it could be a thing.
in that case the closest thing to a voyager earth car is ss86 hot rod otherwise the last voyager car (to my memory) is siege springer, and then all the way back to t30 roadbuster or sandstorm/springer
Even with that, there's still the fact that with this muscle car Junkion most likely being a pretool for Lockdown, it's going to need quite a bit of height in robot mode to an extent we haven't seen at Deluxe class in years; the car mode doesn't need Voyager budget, the robot mode does
If we have to have any Cybertron character relegated to being a reuse of a G1 mold, Hardtop (and his redecoes) is definitely the one I'd pick. Definitely close enough I wouldn't be much bothered.
If the Lockdown pretool guy is a Voyager that would be awesome, since Lockdown is rather tall and he would need to have extra engineering to be tall.
Now I can just hope that Wave 3 Deluxe Junkion Axlegrease isn't another damn motorcycle... please be something like a 40s coupe or a hot rodded classic car...
I'd think he would be too short for any of them.
Cybertron Hardtop from Beachcomber, that sounds about right height-wise.
Do Legacy Retrax, cowards.
updated my legacy toyline poster! let me know if i've missed any exclusives.
at deluxe scale so we get a powerhug redeco too!
