    Cosmos and Swerve are on my list. Can Pipes/Huffer be far behind? If all the Mini-bots are going to get this treatment it would be awesome. Windcharger, Tailgate, Hubcap, Bumblejumper!

    I can't belive that we're getting Swerve and Tailgate first and not Gears and Whindcharger!

    Goes to show that good fiction does in deed matter ;)

    Hell Yeah. Well Wincharger got to be a scout toy (which i love) but your totally right. Suck it Gears!

    I can't wait to carry my fav MTMTE character in my pocket. He's the guy i relate most with.

    Cosmos is cute and i want him.

    I like the little companions - even if they do serve to muddle the ideas of Micromaster/Targetmasters/Minicons up even further.

    Swerve I hold no emotional attachment too - but he is perfectly OK I guess, not that I ever expect to see on on a store shelf, and Cosmos is sort of amusing even if he's redundant at that scale.

    For what they are glorified accessories for Metroplex they are perfectly serviceable I guess.

    Here is a thought if they can upscale Cyberverse Legions can't they upscale 2013 type 'Legends' too ? or downscale a super simple deluxe like Trailcutter/hoist to this smaller size ?

    I still think these things will only achieve their full potential once someone makes them some Pretender shells - to which they are ideally suited.

    -----

    I think it might be fun to see one of the small mould tweaked as Bumper sometime - it's about time he got another toy.

    Please announce a Gears repaint/retool soon Hasbro.

    It didn't take them long to announce a Hoist retool/repaint for Trailcutter (breaker). Heck, it was practically known like a week later they were doing that.

    So again... Gears using the Swerve you have shown us Hasbro, please. I don't want to buy the pricey iGear one if they're going to for sure do an official one.

    They've already saved me money on the Cosmos and Swerve ones.

    Cosmos, awesome (just hope his head can be collapsed into his alt mode to hide it). Swerve looks great too. I dropped my iGear Veer for the moment in favor of waiting for Swerve instead. Their little companions are neat but not so huge a deal to me (UFO wielding a space shuttle as a gun is funny though).

    Those are awesome on their own, but the fact that they come with Micromasters is ingenious!

    I'll happily buy both.
    And now I wait impatiently for the Gears announcement.

    This is the Cosmos I always wanted. MUCH better than the last official version and iGear's. SO GLAD they're giving him another try.

    Maybe they'll give other G1 characters another try too?

    It's like Hasbro took igear's design for Cosmos and made it shittier and smaller. Ah well at least it's cheaper.

    I have the iGear Veer on the way which I'll be happy with, but thanks to IDW I have to buy anything that's Swerve now. I look forward to Tailgate though.

    Haha no. Hasbro is using the design they made way back when they first started doing Classics.

    Also, this one is way better than iGear's.

    Payload in GI Joe was an astronaut who piloted the Crusader Shuttle.

    Payload here is an Autobot Targetmaster who turns into a space shuttle.

    I SEE WHAT YOU DID THAR HASBRO

    Cosmos and Swerve look great!
