    Yeah sorry for being unclear guys, he has 2 total. A pistol and a larger Sci-Fi blaster rifle thing. Note this is based on a CAD diagram, so could be subject to change due to budget etc.

    I haven't sorry, things are wrapped up tighter than usual.

    I have seen leader Blitzwing tho and it appears his leader-class-worthy accessories are some missile/gun pods for his tank mode that he can use as 'thrusters' in jet mode, and 'hulk hands' in bot mode. Waiting with baited breath for a video comparison with the TR version!

    Thanks so much for the response!!!
    Very interested to see what those ‘hulk hands’ are… very hyped for this Blitzwing as he’s my favourite triple changer!
    Thanks for everything man : ) : )

    "Two guns, a pistol and a blaster." is not a surprising amount of accessories?
    Appolux clearified what he meant in the interim. But that's what he typed initially.

    Can’t wait to have Blitzwing next to siege Astrotrain. Don’t care much about the accessories, but maybe they’ll be a nice touch. He’s my most awaited figure for the upcoming line

    These extra accessories for Blitzwing sound extremely fun. I don't think I'd necessarily use them all the time, but I love the idea of Blitzwing having hulk hands.

    They'd especially be fun on an Overcharge repaint. Then I could have at least one copy with the hands equipped.

    Clarified now- but the use of the comma meant that that was 4 guns. However the fact that his now confirmed two guns are not identical is interesting in and of itself I think.

    I'm hoping that Crankcase ends up having flip out cannons like Optimus Primal to keep his trigger on gimmick to some extent. Not upset that the spring loaded gimmick is gone, I just want the cannons in some form.

    It is very weird to me that folks here have decided to refer to Beet Papil as Glowstrike. Glowstrike was a kinda lanky tall Firefly, Beet Papil was a fairly roundish cute little Ladybug.

    I mean they are both cool. And I would absolutely love toys of both, but there's no reason to combine them.

    -ZacWilliam, we can have multiple lady Insecticons that have their own TF names.

    Their robot modes look nigh identical though.

    He does, the sword looks like it can store on his back in robot mode too.

    Tank mode looks pretty good.

    Jet mode tho.....

    I was really hoping they'd cracked the code this time :( 

    Who am I kidding, I'll probably buy him. :oops:

    Um, no?

    They're roughly the same colors, otherwise no.

    -ZacWilliam, not really at all.

    Is it like astrotrain where a chunk where it just looks unfinished, or is it just the usual kibble blitzwings tend to have in jet mode?

    I think I’ve accepted the fact that most of the time triple changers are going to have one mode that is worse than the others.

    The only one I can think of that ha avoided this is Springer, and that’s on behalf of him being more cybertronian I’d imagine.
    I just hope they manage to give octane a good figure once they eventually get to him, it’s been too long.

    Just the usual kibble.
    It's tough to make all 3 modes work out.

    He's no worse than the G1 figure, but I'll need to see a comparison vid of him vs the TR version to pull the trigger.

    I can easily accept double wings and a turret sticking out of the bottom of the jet if everything else looks good.

    Can someone please enlighten me? Are we still getting a new voyager G1 Ratchet in Studio Series or is that only the Bayverse character?

    Agreed. I always liked the turret on the bottom of the G1 plane mode. Felt WWII like, similar to the name Blitzwing. Also felt right for the character, though nowhere near as much as it does for the TFA version! :p
