    I wouldn't be surprised if Fangry showed up as a Select retool of Weirdwolf. It makes sense, it's easy and would probably look good.

    I love that idea. Going Beast era is something for the post-WFC saga.

    In beast mode...possibly.

    But for robot mode, those Weirdwolf robotmode legs are way too different ( skinny ).

    I know I have not been here for a long while. And we can discuss while over tacos. But here is what we have been told so far: "Siege" is based on the moments before the fight comes to Earth.

    The definition for 'Siege' in this case means that one of the two factions has a strong, static defense against the other. Which has me predict that the advantage goes to the Decepticons since Apeface returns with Titan Master technology. And the first season was more about infiltration than anything else. So take what I say as a grain of salt, but my guess is that part 2 will be called the following: INFILTRATE

    I am sticking with this idea because said word means to spy in hopes of obtaining their set goals in said general area. Something that was first used in the first season of The Transformers. Plus this line could easily expand by using elements from The Headmasters (both versions), A Tale of The Pretenders (JG1), The Micromasters (JG1), and Henkei! Henkei! when it comes to the Titan Master technology, Micromaster combiner teams, and the addition of characters like Cheetor/Cheetus and Dinobot.

    But this is just me trying to maintain some interest while I wait and see if I can afford to get an import version of Apeface. So feel free to ignore my speculation. ;)

    That's why I said re-tool. ;)

    Let's be frank, will the world end if Fangry can't stand on two legs in Beast mode? If your answer is yes, it is time to reevaluate literally EVERYTHING.

    Fangry from Weirdwolf would be okay enough, as long as they added wings somehow and most importantly fixed the self-destructing cockpit hinge. Maybe gave the legs and tail some kind of fur detailing. If we get more than just Fangry, I think it's more likely that he and Squeezeplay share a mold somehow.

    Let's be actually frank: Fangry as a retool of Weirdwolf makes no sense whatsoever.
    Fangry needs to have an original mold.

    They really shouldn't produce Pretender toys if they don't want to do them as faithful updates of the originals.
    And forcing them into a BW line won't do Beast Wars any favors either.

    If they did the monstrous pretenders as organic beastformers based on their shell that would... actually be pretty cool, as figures go. Longtooth would give us a walrus BW dude and that's great. Octopunch could be a crab/octopus fuzor. It isn't what I'd want for updated pretenders but as far as worst case scenarios go it's mild.

    See, this is the fun way to look at it. Finding creative ways to re-introduce Pretenders potentially gives us a ton of fun new beast molds if/when Hasbro goes to that for Generations.

    "Longtooth" and "Octopunch" alongside Primal, Rattrap, Stampy, etc...

    How so? What is the remold/repaint capability? Especially as a Headmaster? It makes more sense from a frugality perspective to do the remold. Fangry isn't going to fly off the shelves as it is, and I'd rather he be the remold/repaint that pays for the original mold than less make-sense repaint/remolds to pay for Fangry.

    But it wouldn't be in WFC. Because WFC goes for accuracy. And accuracy means updated Pretenders would involve the inner robot as well as the shell creature.
    This idea wouldn't give us Pretenders or Beast Wars toys. It would give us Pretenders that aren't Pretenders and BW toys that might be cool but would take up slots for pre-existing BW characters.
    What you are describing might have happened in T30 or in Maketoys Cross Dimensions.

    There are more original molds that haven't seen reuse.
    And you have no reason to assume a Fangry toy would sell badly at retail when kids ask their parents for toys they never saw before all the time.

    I think a Fangry would be better as a retool of TR Grotusque. Wouldn't take much to do. Add a wolf head and alter the wings slightly..

    I think one thing is certain: If we're getting Apeface, then that means Snapdragon isn't too far behind.
