    Oh yes, that's true. I get that they were trying to do his beast mode for the combiner, but Sky Lynx's body type hardly matches him.

    Siege has the weaponizers and the notion of combining weapons and blast effects and hard points to attach them. Earthrise has that "AIR LOCK system" thing of ramps that enable some figures with base modes to attach to each other. I would argue that linewide gimmicks still exist, it's just that 1) they aren't on every single figure in the line, and 2) aren't as obtrusive on figures that do have the gimmick. The AIR LOCK ramp gimmick is on a number of figures, but it doesn't seem to be a very utilized one, since rarely does anyone appear to mention it. It also seems hardly obtrusive on figures that do have it, as I have yet to see anyone complain about its presence on say ER Optimus' trailer, or that fold out panel on Fasttrack, or Sky Lynx's base mode.

    I question the notion that the torso figure in the Liokaiser boxset is not Deathsaurus. Arguing that he isn't because of a different name doesn't seem like a strong reason, since characters frequently get name changes due to things like Hasbro losing a trademark or the original name being inappropriate for a children's toy. Two other figures in the same boxset (Fellbat and Ironbison) also sport changed names, and there's not much doubt as to who they are supposed to be. I don't see how one can argue that those figures are Hellbat and Killbison, but Dezarus is not Deathsaurus. Clearly, the name Deathsaurus is not appropriate to give to a toy meant for worldwide distribution to kids, so it was changed.

    As mentioned, I'm neutral on what Hasbro adds or does not to a new Deathsaurus figure. I just want one to go with Star Saber. I do think though, that he could have say blast effects like those that came with Lionizer, except bigger, to attach to his wings to simulate his death wing attack.

    Dezaras looks nothing like Deathsaurus whereas fellbat and ironbison are actually recognizable as hellbat and killbison.

    That's just what happens when Hasbro reuses molds. Not having a direct physical resemblance was particularly obvious with the CW Technobots, yet there's no dispute over who they were, and it's still the same line. It is also known that Hasbro has a history of redecoing or additionally minorly retooling some figures and passing them off as new characters, but the figure itself doesn't really resemble the character's G1 appearance. For that reason, I don't think this disproves that Dezarus is Deathsaurus.

    There's no fiction to support it either way, there's no resemblance to support it either. This is one of those instances where the fans can literally see it whichever way they want. There's no right or wrong answer.

    Oh ok. So he's just a leader of a sub group that's all. Not a supreme commander.. alright then.

    Clipper (easy repaint of an existing Siege Micromaster mold)
    Pipo
    Boater

    Better yet, do three packs.
    Braver and Clipper
    Laster and Pipo
    Blacker and Boater
    This way you get the other Brainmasters AND the three remaining Micromasters everybody wants.

    Maybe throw Jan on his hoverdisc in one of the sets

    Okay so rounding the list.
    Auto bot supreme commanders are as follows:
    Optimus prime(duh)
    Ginrai/God Ginrai
    Star Saber/Victory Saber
    Dai Atlas/big powered
    Star Convoy
    And for flare and color pop
    Thunder clash

    who all are decepticon supreme commanders
    I’m really just trying to get a centerpiece of both supreme commanders for both factions

    Wouldn’t Rodimus also have been a supreme commander? And seeing as Optimus passed off his duties to Ultra Magnus wouldn’t he have been supreme commander for a little bit as well?
