    If anything, they just borrowed the digital sculpt. Otherwise, Mindwipe's hands function differently from Scourge's, so they wouldn't be able to reuse the actual tooling.

    That is VERY nice!

    Ditto! The “shot” in Thundershot is from Longshot originally (Longshot with Thor’s hammer)! Poor Spiral has been neglected for years…. (Though the avatar is Ultimate Spiral)

    Anyway… I look forward to getting this! The cassette box tops it off nicely.

    Kudos to @Banshee for the pics. That looks great. The blood red really pops!

    Those are the same hands from SS86 Scourge. Shit. The open hand on mine broke…

    I honestly love this. In my head-cannon, Draculus will be the Decepticon Leader immediately preceding or succeeding Megatron (I’ve always been a fan of IDW’s approach to Galvatron being a totally separate character).

    Looks great, especially the head. Sorry I missed it. Hopefully it comes back in stock.

    Just to make myself feel better I bought another Mindwipe.

    Seeing these totally makes me happy I pre-ordered. I was on the fence but didn't want another Maverick situation where I wanted him after initially not wanting him and had to pay a slightly higher price for him. Seeing these, I *really* want Draculus.

    I'm almost positive someone will customize him into a beast wars-style Rodimus. :D 

    I'm not sure how I want to fit him into my collection/head canon. On the one hand, yeah obvs choice would be a badass con. On the other, I kinda want to stick to Drac as a lonely, eccentric bot cursed with draining energon from live cybertronians and lives somewhere remote. Maybe he has a thing for Airachnid or similar. :)

    The xmen collab and this one do nothing for me. I am interested to see what the mummy will look like. I need another zombie for my deadimus primes army

    At the risk of going off-topic, Spiral got a little love during the last few years, between her living in Los Angeles and joining Uncanny X-Force with that snazzy black and white outfit, then having a storyline in Gambit and Rogue's "Mr and Mrs X" series where they fought against Mojo and resulted in her getting the rest of her human soul back that Mojo ripped from her in her admittedly very rape-y origin, becoming the strongest and whole minded she's ever been. And that's the last I know. But like you said, she just disappeared into limbo once Hickman's Powers of X mega storyarc started, probably since she's not a mutant, she has no stake in it. Hopefully when she comes back, the writers remember her progress instead of reverting her back to Mojo's brainwashed slave-girl again.

    I don't have any versions of this mold so this was an easy pickup for me. I know it's not a great mold, but I like TR era stuff for the most part.

    Yeah, the hands are definitely the same sculpt as Scourge. The connection is different, though, the mold was changed to fit Draculus. Scourge has wrist rotation, and Draculus doesn't.

    Scourge really has the vampire minion look to him, too.

    Not sure about Target, but Pulse has been getting stuff in early. Mirage/Grimlock was pushing two months early. A notice went out that Sideswipe/Sywarp will start shipping soon, so a month and half early.

    ..I admit, part of me now wants to see Hasbro give us Frankenstein's Monster with one of those big hearses from the late '20/early '30s as the alt mode, and an Autobot X-type robot mode designed to look cobbled together from recognizable parts of other TF characters.

    So what's up with this figure/line?
    Will they be going through all the old school monsters?
    This is the first I'm reading/seeing about this.
