    TR Optimus Prime/Octone & Megatron/Blitzwing for a couple of examples.

    Not too worried about Smokescreen looking rough in car mode - Reprolabels almost certainly will deliver. The hubcap/wheel covers they worked out for the CW Devastator set would ameliorate Smokescreen's big peg-on wheels nicely, most likely.

    Why do I feel very strongly that we'll get a Jazz figure out of this Smokescreen somewhere down the line?

    Smokey's feet are a hollow mess but I'm still glad I never bought the SIEGE version.

    Now if they make Jazz out of this ER mold that might be a problem for me since he's actually one of my favorite Autobots who I feel deserves better quality if I'm ever going to replace the RTS version.

    There's no such thing these days. Unless they're one of the bigger figures or have some major unique design element..everything gets reused.

    Mmm, you have a point, I like the bird feet because are like in the original comics but having no spread articulation could be against the figure.

    I still think it will be absolutely criminal of Hasbro if we don’t finally get a blue/Diaclone Bluestreak out of Earthrise Smokescreen, preferably in the Selects line.

    Is the ER Smokescreen a new mold or is it using the Siege Datsun mold as a base?

    I wish that number 80 on his doors could be changed to a number 38, and they would've painted the missile packs silver just to give him a more g1 look but oh well.

    Especially with how rounded Smokescreen’s chest is, I instantly saw a similarity with RTS Jazz

    Does Sky Lynx have any left/right movement in those neck joints? Not sure I\'ve seen pics showing that yet.

    Oh I get what you're saying, but even that is different from releasing the same character 2 years in a row with inferior molding the first go-around. At least in my opinion.

    I was really hoping that Sky Lynx head could open up to reveal a small cockpit appropriate for a Titan Master or Prime Master to fit in and I was hoping that his cargo was removable although I know the neck has to slide into somewhere 20200305_094405.jpg 20200305_094349.jpg
    I guess I'll just hold out hope for a Titan Class Galaxy Shuttle one day Screenshot_20191004-175431_Google.jpg
    Galaxy Shuttle was definitely bigger than Sky Lynx and Jetfire, RescueJean_captives_safe.jpg
    Galaxy Shuttle if made really shouldn't be any smaller than Titan but a HUGE Commander Class could work if they hollow some spaces out to expand the overall size but keep the engineering and conversion simpler. As long as hes the biggest Space Shuttle / Flight vehicle there is, it should work.

    Has to be bigger, larger, taller than Jetfire

    that’s what everyone thought about Sunstreaker getting made out of Wheeljack and he got his own mold with some similar engineering but still a new mold.

    I think jazz will have his own mold. There’s too many differences in his arms and legs to make him from smokescreen plus it depends on whether or not they wanna give him his door wings but considering how cartoon faithful they wanna make characters if he gets a new toy he’ll hide his doors. Plus that mold is gonna get milked for the other three that share his body
