    Basically this, not that this particular reveal is all that great. Give me 4 Sweeps to go with Cyclonus or just keep it!

    There is currently no evidence of there being Sweeps in this. One arm's colored like G1 Starscream or Energon "Energon" Starscream (the G1 colored version of Energon Starscream), the other arm's colored like Armada Thrust, one leg's colored blue, possibly Energon Barricade, the other leg's colored like Armada Demolishor, and the torso's colored like G1 Megatron or Cybertron Galvatron.

    Yeah you're right, DragStrip/Mirage mold is the true underused one along with Brawl. (For now...)

    I just didn't count retools (major Air Raid or minor Slingshot) or redecos (All of G2) unless they are mass released separate as different character. I would love G2 Slingshot alone while the others aren't for me.

    Either way I didn't know that about the arms for the two collectors club Skydives. And I thought Alpha Bravo was bad... And still is in retrospect. They really should make a new helicopter mold that can homage more on G1's Bruticus Rotorblade shield.

    The complaints about ankle tilts and looseness? Definitely.
    The "complaints" (read: whining) about this or that being not G1 enough? Not at all!
    If Combiner Wars was ever meant to be G1, then what's that little "S" doing there?

    I'm thinking of repurposing UW Galvatronus into Megaplex,Megatron's clone as a way to make him a different character from Titans Return Galvatron.

    I am inclined to agree with some of posters on this thread that there doesn't have to be some unifying theme. Keep in mind we got Armada Megatron for the Combiner Wars line. So who knows we may get some G1 characters mixed in with some of the UT characters. I am also betting that this might be an exclusive like Grand Scourge with some comic that explains some kind of dimensional shift in the story.

    For me I am hoping the Voyager torso gets a new head. I hate to see that Cyclonus head recolored to appear like some other character.

    Actually that's not a bad idea.

    though maybe he should be called Galvaplex instead. :p

    Wasn't Marvel Comic's Galvatron (II) a dimension jumper?

    That is a good spot! It's just a shame none of the limbs really match the colours for Hook, Line or Sinker.

    Thing is who could it be if it isn't Crankcase? Prime Breakdown? I can't think of that many Blue Bad Guy Trucks.

    Looks like an interesting combiner. Hopefully, Takara will name the other figures in the set soon.

    Suddenly it all makes sense.

    You could just re-purpose them.

    Why would Takara be hoaging the Marvel comics with this? Have they shown to care for those comics in the past?

    I really doubt it's Crankcase. I'm still putting my virtual money on Prime Breakdown.
