    I would also contest this "veering away" by Hasbro, given the rapid reiterations of the ER Optimus Prime buck, TWO alternative Earth Mode Ratchet decos landing in rapid succession, the massive re-use of the Siege Seeker buck, and the whole introduction of an official SG line, among other things. Seems more like a "veering in" to me.

    I'm only arguing against inappropriate mold reuses. The Ratchets and the ER Optimus Primes are, at least IMO, very appropriate.

    Sure but, like, this Fangry wouldn't be matching the new trilogy, he would be matching his counterparts toys that happened in TR, and in TR's case, the uh "close enough" approach was used on multiple characters.

    Now this is just boiling down to "your opinion versus mine", and I think those conversations are pretty useless. Besides, I just gave my initial assessment of the situation. Who knows? If this turns out to be the case, I might actually like it.

    We'll see.

    Wow, a multipack where most of the figures are something I want? Must be my lucky day!

    From the leak/upcoming thread it was insinuated the Decepticon Targetmasters, Autobot Jumpstarters and the Monsterbots were all getting rereleased (check the last line below), though obviously everything’s a rumour and subject to change until it’s on the shelf :D 

    I realise Crosshairs was Selects but he was a ‘75% of the way there’ sort of toy. If Fangry was mainline I’d totally expect a new mold, but as an exclusive in a four pack I feel you could get a pretty close (much closer than Crosshairs was to his G1 model) Fangry from a few new Monsterbot parts.

    I don't think it's a "opinion versus mine" thing to point out that Fangry, the guy missing from the trio that still hasn't had a toy yet, will likely exist with the purpose of fitting with those other two and thus be designed with that gimmick and aesthetic in mind, but yes I suppose we'll see when we see.

    Jerry Seinfeld = Bee Movie = Marvel G1 Bumblebee

    What’s that coming over the hill = “Monster” by The Automatic = Fangry

    Ms. Stacy = Spider-Gwen = Blackarachnia

    Guardian Ape = Child of Primus = TFU/BWSG Optimus Primal

    And if they want to continue remolding Monsterbots into Destron Jrs, Repugnus might make a good Cancer/Squeezeplay!

    Remolds of Grotusque, Repugnus and Skullcruncher into Fangry, Squeezeplay and Horribul would be fantastic.

    Fangry is what will make or break this for me... a sloppy name use is a no-go, but Hasbro has been good about not doing that the past few years...

    Curious if Primal will get the "optimus " faceplate remold to match the 2003 universe toy...

    Could they remold the Allicon into Fangry?

    I just thought it may work, and Hasbro loves to reuse molds at least once.

    At least two of them (Marvel Bee and Nemesis Primal) would be easy to unload on the secondary market for a price that more than makes up for it.
