    lmao now I gotta read his other posts
    I'd love a Deluxe Soundwave, even tho we all know it's gonna have a big undercarriage of robot parts hanging off that flat bomber mode

    New personality equals new character. Create a new character then. Oh wait, they aren't talented enough to do that in a medium where anyone would care so they need the TF branding.

    If anyone can be anyone and anything, there is no meaning to any character or design or the fiction, and you see the results now. The investment by and large isn't there. TF isn't creating new legions of fans, and at some point when the old timers move on and they will, it's going to be a serious problem.

    Reinventing the characters, transforming them if you will, for a new generation of people is what's been going on for a while now within Transformers, and those incarnations of these characters (such as Animated Prowl, BW Megatron, Prime Arcee, Bayverse Barricade) have become beloved and iconic in their own right, becoming the definitive version of the character for some, despite sharing a name with someone from the franchise's past.

    Also, there's been a lot of new characters over the past few years of Transformers, Earthspark itself has the Terrans, for instance.

    Indeed, with listings indicating Aftermath and Spitfire to potentially be new characters.

    So, how much do you hate Beast Wars, RID Strongarm, Bayverse Barricade, and TFP Knock-Out?

    I’ve checked your page, and based on it, you seem to really hate any modern TF content and you give me Geewuner vibes

    Sorry, I'm out of the loop. Who or what is Spitfire?

    Also, any word on a Deluxe Hashtag or Jawbreaker yet to complete the family?

    In that long list of stuff from Hasbro Europe there was some new ES stuff, including a few listings under the name ‘Spitfire’.

    For some reason none of the news staff reported on it

    Jawbreaker I believe there is a listing for. Nothing on Hashtag sadly.

    She is at least getting a Warrior, so better than she had before.

    Hashtag isn't technically new to the toyline, as she got a Tacticon last year.

    Well that's a shame. It's a great looking version of one of the better Cyberverse molds.
