    I’m down for this and a Legacy Armada Wheeljack.

    I’m just curious about how they will do the paint apps on the Legacy Armada Wheeljack, Cartoon, Hasbro toy, or Takara Toy, personally I am hoping for something closer to the Takara toy deco.

    Yep, these do look good.

    I'm definitely more excited for the inevitable Armada Wheeljack though.

    This was the highlight of the SDCC reveals and it\'s not even the main reveal. Also im so happy molded in insignias are back, they look so much better than tampos imo

    He does have a peghole kinda so imma say called it. Though I guess the peg doesn't retract like Jolt's does? Bit unfortunate. Whole thing looks great though. Very much looking forward to having this set and still hoping we get a Smokescreen from Hot Shot to sorta go with this as well
    Also where is the red cat from? Not part of the set right?

    Very clever to use those existing side panels to replicate the original toy's gullwing missile launchers.

    Ah good ol’ Drench. I just realized now realized why he’s called that.

    Legacy Drench when Hasbro?

    Man, I would love if the "Color Changers" get an update and I understand that most Transformers gimmicks are gone by now but what would be the point of having a new Color Changer if they can't change colors?

    Grabbed this and stoked for the (inevitable?) Wheeljack.

    Hoping we can finally get the canceled Battle In A Box Universe set with Drench and Smokescreen now that we have modern molds for both. Drench was different enough in his original test shots from the final club version of Sideswipe that I'd love to see them do both-

    Smokescreen could be a redeco of the Earthrise figure (or Hot Shot but ehhhhh…) in Prime S1 or S3 inspired colors, and maybe even in Dreadwing colors. The are many color schemes that would work!

    was thinking about something like this happening earlier. leader priced 4 pack of these would work great

    *edit* hell, could have the jolt be either the OG or powerlinx deco for the folks that want a toy accurate one

    Utsumi!! Anchi!!

    Need this asap :lol  I guess US PULSE is still saying September.... but I do hope this ships out sooner than that.

    As far as SSSS.Gridman tie-ins go, I'm still hoping we get SG Thundercracker. And on the non-tie-in side, I personally really want a Hot Rod-colored Cyclonus... the mold is sitting right there, I can't believe they haven't given him to us yet...

    As much as I’d like a new Drench (and by association, Deluge) I feel it would get a bit repetitive if three separate Sideswipe retools all use the same slashed Autobot symbol, especially when Drench is a literal nobody in terms of shelf presence.

    The embossed Autobot symbol is cool and all, but they kind of shot themselves in the foot for future retools and redecos.

    IIRC, it's a Japanese exclusive. Came with movie ticket pre-sales or something like that?
