    With the rerelease of Rung, Smashdown and now the Battle Squad, It seems Hasbro have a lack of creativity.
    If so, I have some micromasters proposals : Construction Patrol, Monster Truck Patrol, Seawatch and Fixit from Rescue Patrol, Autobot Air Patrol, Metro Squad, Micromaster transports, etc..

    Speaking of Seawatch, Hasbro created military insignias with possible Water division but we didn't see yet aquatic characters in the WFC line... maybe soon.

    Also, It would be fun to see a voyager or leader class of the helicopter/base who came with Skyhopper in 1989, but now with Modulator treatment.

    I like the idea of Skyhopper (Slyhopper now stupid licences). The micromaster was part of the 10 pack exclusive and so far out of that boxset we have the bases for Irontread (Ironworks) and Overair (Airwave) so its not a total impossibility

    Putting aside how trouser-soilingly badass Scorponok looks in this photo for a moment - it appears this is further evidence that Snapdragon is not afflicted by the same unsightly nylon plastic as Apeface.

    Fingers crossed!

    :D

    Thank goodness they're re-releasing this. My stores were awful in the last waves of Siege.

    It's likely that the third part of the Trilogy will run through 2021. Unicron should be released in January 2021.

    This. Much better than MP51 Arcee's design for sure..
    All we need is a new G1 Hot Rod design...

    With the ability to turn him in Rodimus and with the trailer turning to canon/base

    I'd like to see ALL 4 of those similar sets get updates. ALL of them, with their proper names.

    Hopefully better than the PoTP one. But they might milk it and do deluxe Hot Rod and Leader Rodimus to save any god awful upgrade gimmick and to make more money cause lets face it who wouldnt buy both?

    Personally hoping they go this route. I have no qualms at all about buying both.

    Second that, you can do more with something when you don’t have to cram stuff like that into the design.

    I’d be happy with just a new Hot Rod though.

    Huh, glossed over that because I was busy focusing on Snapdragon. The silver weathering was probably greenlit at first as a carry-over from Siege before the designers decided to cancel it, but it was probably too late by then to change the paint allotment/budget for Megatron's decals. Again, I have no quibble about them anyway, and I think in Megatron's particular case it does an alright job of reducing the grey-black monotone. What bothers me more is his dynamic and articulated sword-gun getting nerfed into some sort of spear strapped to the wrist.

    That spear was such an unnecessary change, they should have kept the sword because it was bad ass.

    I’m also going to defend the weathering here too because on a tank, especially the treads it makes sense. Most are displaying their figures in robot mode so I really don’t get why there’s so much crap about it

    Completely agree with you. POTP Rodimus was good (i liked the colors and the evolution gimmick a lot) but the proportions of the advanced robot were inappropriate.

    I was thinking the same thing but I didn’t feel like saying anything.
