    Was there a late G1, Euro, or G2 truck with a rocket or jet thruster in the bed? Maybe flames on the hood? Was it yellow? If so, what was its name?

    Edit: Found it. This guy, Scorch.

    Oh my god that actually looks like it would make a good Trailbreaker remold

    The chests/hoods look like they transform the same too

    I had originally envisioned the yellow Trailbreaker as a G1 Electro before he gains his G2 form.

    Funny you thought the bot with a deadly disease (GPS) was the upgraded version of a bot who’s now characterized as a medic who could’ve treated said disease

    also, yk the staff took down your signature?

    I have all signatures hidden. I’ve completely forgotten what signature I had, it was many years ago

    I ordered this a month ago and he still didn\'t come. Any way that\'s another story. but that\'s ok just naging the company won\'t quicker. He looks pretty cool and good.

    If you are talking about MP-56+ he only releases in Japan this Saturday March 30th. So not long to wait now.

    Yep. If I had bought this figure, I would've use it as Scorch. Makes much more sense to me, especially since I don't care for TT's newly created characters, neither the name nor the personalities.

    Yeah, I love the Diaclone retool options, but the character profiles generally suck.

    >G2 Symbol

    I NEED to see his bio asap now! (Although I think they've done that with a few MPs and it didn't really play a big part of the bio)

    Yep, this is Deep Cover:

    upload_2024-3-27_19-17-11.jpeg

    I’m still holding out hope that TT decides to produce an MP Deep Cover from the MP-12 mold before they retire it. It would be such a shame if we didn’t get all of the repaints in matching molds….

    On topic, Riggorus looks great. I love the yellow if for no other reason that how different it is from most ‘Con decos. Like everyone else though, I’m curious if there’s some meaning to G2 ‘Con sticker that was included?

    Might be cause his bright colors fit in with the G2 Coms more than the 80s ones
