    As of today, 7 July 2023, what remains for the neo-Diaclone Car roster:

    Masterpiece: black Ironhide (DK-2 Guard), blue Trailbreaker (DK-3 Breaker), red Hoist (Lift-Ticket), blue Hoist (unnamed), red Skids (unnamed), Meister/Jazz, Stepper/Ricochet, Ligier/Mirage, red Mirage (unnamed), black Sideswipe (Deep Cover)

    Generations: yellow Trailbreaker (Riggorus), red Crosscut (Reboost), blue Hoist (unnamed), red Skids (unnamed), Stepper/Ricochet, red Mirage (unnamed), black Tracks (Loudpedal)


    I am discounting Streak/Bluestreak with the silver body plus silver hood because no one can be bothered to care about that. And the all-silver prize version of Streak/Bluestreak and all-gold prize version of Meister/Jazz because that's just not happening, not to mention licensing limitations on realistic Porsche and Ligier vehicles. And Generation 2 Jazz plus the scrapped orange redeco. And sadly, I assume TakaraTomy and Hasbro have forgotten about the black variant of pre-Crosscut and black prototype version of Hoist. And the Mexican Generation 1 forms of Prowl, Hoist, and Smokescreen.

    Eh, I'm turning him into a Bot.
    He just does not scream Con to me.

    A better theory at least than my first thought (which is that Takara can't spell).

    I don't see these two happening since the Generations molds for Trailbreaker and Hoist are identical besides the heads and beds, I can't see them doing "another" Breaker with the different head and bed. And a red Skids would be the same as a theoretical Reboost since there's no car mode differences on the Skids mold, only the head. But hell, I would take them if they did them. Maybe a Buzzworth multipack.

    Blue Hoist and red Skids would be great Decepticon additions to help differentiate them from their Autobot versions since they're so close to looking like Breaker and Reboost.

    Does Velocitron Burnout work better as this than as actual Burnout? With her Crosscut head?

    So, is it an unusual spelling of "Rigorous", or a bad transliteration of "Legolas"? :) 

    (give the truck a bow!)

    Definitely not the latter as the first syllable wouldn’t match. (リ) ri/li and not (レ) re/le.

    I think it’s just a wholly unique name.
