    Received today from Hasbro Pulse UK.

    Personally using this as Powerlinx Armada Wheeljack.

    Joints all tight and Minicon is great

    Unusual for Pulse UK to get them way before US..

    I can’t wait for this but most especially the obvious Armada Wheeljack and Wind Sheer!

    Did this for sure come from Pulse UK or in the US? Mine still says pending (I'd rather it not charge before the end of the month)

    Got my SG set this morning

    San Diego Comic Con 2023 - Hasbro Breakfast Event - Legacy Powerlinx Hot Shot & Jolt Revealed!

    Some Whisper pics, apologies for the photo quality. Headline news is 5mm peg, no 5mm socket. The gap under the nose for the peg to fold into lacks the clutch to lock onto a 5mm/Minicon peg

    Lots more moving bits than the original Minicon, both articulation & transformation

    Looking good. Whisper not actually having a mini-con port is disappointing, but at the same time, how many figures actually have compatible pegs nowadays? It'd be nice to have but it'd also be kinda useless, particularly with the figure it's packed in with.

    Now, bring on the inevitable Armada repaint.

    90% of the people who see this are definitely waiting for that inevitable Armada Wheeljack.
    Seriously, if no one can tell this is supposed to be a pre-tool I don\'t know what to think about you.

    Lovely! Can’t wait for this guy. And it looks like these pics had the same idea I did about the ROTB Beast Weaponmasters working as SG Predacons. I reeeeally want them to release a set of those:

    -Chainclaw as Razorclaw (who was a gold wolf in SG)
    -Cheetor as Rampage
    -Airraxor as Divebomb

    …and then throw in:

    -Rhinox as Headstrong
    -Skullcruncher as… uh… some new Predacon
    -the old Smashdown minotaur bot as Tantrum, because why not?


    Possibly true (regarding the 90%) but there are definitely some of us, like myself, who are giddy that the SG Sideswipe version is being released first. :)

    The head is just weird to me, it feels more like an older person than Sideswipe should be.

    That is because this is Armada Wheeljacks head!

    basically this is like a repaint. It even has the minicon and batons of Armada Wheeljack

    I only ended up with one Siege Sideswipe somehow so I don't mind getting an Armada Wheeljack pretool in order to get That Hot Rod Toy With That Paint Job. It does look like a great reuse, it fares better than some of the other instances where they've taken a G1 style mold and retool it into a significantly different aesthetic. I'm in for this And Wheeljack.

    I have no idea what people constitute as a repaint as any more. SG Sideswipe and Wheeljack are releasing first; we haven't even saw evidence that we're getting Wheeljack & Wind Sheer at all. Yet everyone's saying these two are repaints of figures that don't exist yet? Huh...?

    I'd think that "prepaint" would make more sense in this context.
