    Just a heads up... looks like this one doesn't hasn't got waist swivel either..... ;) 



    Anyway, on a more serious note ; this Sky Shadow looks OK for a pre-tool.
    The sculpt of the forearms looks a little simplistic - but more importantly, the tank mode looks quite a bit too high, which is an issue OverLord will suffer probably as well.

    Nice!

    I'll be very disappointed if we don't get an Energon Megatron repaint out of this. The tank represents his Armada body/tank accessory he came with, and the head is even really close.

    True, but my point was that making the majority of a TF toy's deco in stickers to the point of the faction symbols being only stickers as well isn't beyond the scope of the line. Combiner Wars Megatron had extra faction stickers both Con and Bot, as well, but I didn't mention him since he already had symbols in both modes.

    I expect the Overlord retool to have a larger plane arm - here it is obviously meant to homage the drone thing Black Shadow always has - and at least it's useful here as opposed to the utterly useless one on the Deluxe.

    As much as I agree it works as an homage/update, if we were to get anything for E. Megatron it would probably just be a repaint of TR Galvatron. Since E. Megatron was designed to explicitly homage G1 Galvatron right down to the 2x2 grid abs and that TR toy already has a jet mode.

    Octane will be a retool of the Voyager G2 Prime, and I don't think Walgreens even sells voyager class.

    Walgreens carried Voyagers during CW but for TR they've only had Deluxes.

    Make it Energon Galvatron and I'd be sold. My son would love an update to the Hand-me-down he has now.

    FYI, we at the TransMissions Podcast told you about Top Spin back on April 21st, 2016 (ep. 166), and have had a running tally of confirmed "rumored" leaks from our source. Sergeant Kup was revealed on that same show, so I expect his figure to be revealed next.

    I think I may have just changed my mind on getting Black Shadow, guess I'll have all the Phase Sixers after all.

    I'd like to see how the legs and torso connection works.

    Topspin looks really cool as well, he'll be replacing my Mech Ideas Apex/Geminus (whichever one's Topspin), hope there's a Twin Twist later as well. Obviously I can't 100% tell from such a small image but I don't see anything that would indicate he's a retool of anyone, if anything he's more likely to share a mould with a currently hypothetical Twin Twist. I think it's time to put this post-Combiner Wars remould-hysteria to bed.

    Since it's leader class and already a lock for Overlord...I doubt Hasbro would go to the well a third time at that price point. I wouldn't be shocked if Takara did it, but not Hasbro.

    I don't want to get ahead of anything, but that connector looks simple enough that it'd make a hell of a universal system if Hasbro/Takara wanted to do some kind of Duocon or Energon Superlink gimmick in the future.
