It's not a new character though, it's an existing character (Energon Omega Sentinel) as a comic of an existing toy (TR Astrotrain with Ptero's head), which Legends has done for years. Such as the TR Hardhead/quake body with TR Getaways head as Bludgeon from the Convobat story from back in 2016. No actual toy was made. (Despite it looking awesome) Which is an antithesis to making toys of noncharacters simply because they have the molds. Frankly if they wanted to, they could've been doing an easy redeco subline based on the comics, but in all this time, they haven't. Takara's Selects have all been vintage nostalgia driven, not milking a mold. They took the time to retool Tentakil into Scylla when they didn't really have to, but wanted to go that extra distance for screen accuracy, just like doing a Battlestars Megatron that evolved just like Star Convoy did and was both Super and Ultra Megatron with a little bonus surprise. All to appeal to old source material fans, who have shown repeatedly that there's a profit there, they're already making a profit by getting enough orders to justify the run, milking molds isn't the strategy anymore.
