    The way he was originally colored, makes him look bald, like Prof. X

    I like all of the sculpted detail on this figure because I prefer having my Transformers look like they stepped out of a modern Live-Action Sci-Fi Action-Adventure movie playing in Imax 3D at a modern movie theater or a modern 3D CGI animated series playing on a modern HD TV over having them be so blandly sculpted that they look like they stepped out of an old 1970s or 1980s Super Robot Anime as they used to play on old obsolete tube TVs.

    I'm thinking this is the first collaborative I'm skipping. Not really a fan of x-men and he's not an autobot or anything so it really wouldn't fit with my Generations collection. I was hoping he'd get a comic or something to place him somewhere in transformers lore but doesn't look like it.

    a comic seems inevitable. plus, he looks exactly as much like an autobot as the other two crossovers, a simple reprolabel should fix him up.

    Usually they announce the comic the same time the figure is shown off tho.

    So Ultimate Synapse is not Autobot at first time.

    Are there Decepticon robots in collaborative line?

    not yet. If i had to choose a few:
    -KARR (redeco of a potential KITT, retooled from Kingdom Tracks)
    -Recognizer (either use the 1982 or Legacy design)
    -HISS Tank (stupid obvious)

    I never noticed until it was brought up here, but technically none of the Collaboratives are Autobots. I'm looking now and none of them have faction symbols, and their on-package bios don't mention anything about Transformers lore. If you don't read the comics, there's nothing indicating that these are Cybertronians, probably so the other fandom can enjoy these without having to know anything about TFs.

    And I don't know how likely a tie-in comic for this would be. IDW had the licenses for Ghostbusters and Back To The Future already, so having all those properties under one roof made it easy. For this, they'll have to battle it out with Disney/Marvel over how to split revenue. It could happen, but I'm not going to get my hopes up. (I'd LIKE for it to happen, of course. Anything to make me forget the awful New Avengers vs. Transformers, ugh...)

    This is basically how I thought the original MP figures were, and they were all the better for it.

    So, i've done some thinking.

    Besides KARR, a HISS Tank, and the Recognizer from TRON (or the one from TRON: Legacy, honestly they could use either design), what iconic vehicles would make great Decepticons? X-Spanse, Ectotron, Gigawatt, and Ectotron again are great, but i'm tired of autobots.

    honestly i throw around the idea of the Mystery Machine as a decepticon, since "the mystery machine is evil now" is a super common thing in Scooby-Doo and it'd fit much more comfortably into The Classic Scooby Formula than "the mystery machine is a mystery solver now and you have to try to squeeze him into the hallway gag"

    They would never do these, but:
    Christine,1983 john carpenter horror film based off of stephen king novel. 1958 Plymouth Fury

    Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal game series. (murderous icecream truck) This is a dream figure of mine. I think in Twisted Metal Black, he actually partially transforms into a robot as his special move.

    There’s any number of Star Wars vehicles that are entirely plausible. That’s kind of a dead horse to beat I guess.

    What about a Cylon Raider or Klingon Bird of Prey? A Death Glider from Stargate would be cool, but I don’t know if there’s enough nostalgia for that franchise to be relevant today.

    I can just imagine a Transformers Death Glider with a Horus or Anubis motif for the head though and it’d be so cool.

    all the good villain vehicles that aren't from Star Wars are super massive, too big to get Collaborative figures. It's actually kind of ridiculous.

    I'm only saying KARR because it's an easy redeco or minor retool of KITT.

    hey, that means you could make an evil Lightcycle...
