    Ok, getting the first three sets. Marvel Comics Impactor and Springer, the new Fossilizers and Leadfoot are must haves.

    For Bulkhead, I'll probably stick with the Legacy version, and I've already got the Takara versions of Topspin and Twin Twist. Though I won't say no to new future designs of those two.

    Thanks for sharing those panels. For my perspective, I'm approaching it from the hypothetical that he likely wouldn't get a new mold. Of the molds available, core class Megatron could work pretty well for the character, but other options like Refraktor could work too. I absolutely do not expect him to get a dedicated mold though so it's a question of what mold could work from those available

    I'd be happy with a Deluxe or Core class (I'm actually thinking about the possibility of remolding Buzzworthy Origin Bumblebee). Xaaron's greatest strength wasn't his fighting prowess but his intellect.

    The guy who let the Wreckers off the leash deserves his own figure. And I'd like one of his official Autobot logos to come with a small 'honourary' Wrecker logo slapped on top of it. (maybe a present from his buddy Impactor given as a mark of respect, and preferably located somewhere you don't immediately notice it.

    Actually, I wouldn't put it past Impactor to stick it on his back. ).

    I really can't decide which bulkhead I want more. I'll preorder the pack when I have the cash. The others make camohead worth it.

    I feel like the shorter height of Xaaron could be stylistic. Like, canonically, he could be at the same height, but stylistically, he is shorter.

    In JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable, Koichi Hirose is canonically 5'2''. However, Koichi is often depicted as 2'11''. It could just be stylistic to show how Xaaron isn't a fighter.

    I feel like he could be Deluxe-class, like a remold of a Deluxe-Class Tank Transformer.

    Xaaron - Guzzle shared mould? A retooled head and chest, and near monochrome paint scheme on Xaaron could do the job of differentiating them

    Well, I got two "Twin Twists", I dunno what he is called for the series the latest figure is from, it's not the same as having one the original colors, but at least I have him... well, In November, that's the expected ship date!

    When I think of Xaaron I usually think of the scene where he’s being chased down by Galvatron which is the first time I saw him. There he seems just a bit shorter than Galvatron, so I wouldn’t mind if he’s a deluxe as long as he’s a bit shorter than Impactor. I know this is a wreckers line so people are looking at Target:2006 for scale, but here’s some photos of how he’s depicted in the US comics.

    864B754F-23D1-4071-AF86-D27EE7D90B6B.jpeg 31414CC4-04B7-4635-A8B1-6F121CE7EA80.jpeg F1C16B14-05FC-4FAE-83E2-E78F1680E142.jpeg 17CFC54F-E2A9-4839-AA76-E85EFF4DBBE6.jpeg 026C24F4-DF5E-4CED-9773-1094C9BD6D8A.jpeg E6710D15-F04E-47BE-B6FE-B5029C91676E.jpeg 6A1FC693-78BA-4048-95B7-FEABD0057459.jpeg FF5BD155-0925-4DD9-AA0F-200F8D06BDC4.jpeg

    Although, like ScorponokIsHere said, towards the end of the comics’ run the artists kinda drew them all the same height.

    Yeah, I don't think of Xaaron's size versus Galvatron II in that scene as diagnostic, because Andrew Wildman is pretty infamous for drawing literally everyone the same size.

    Yeah, I guess what I was saying is that in my mind’s eye Xaaron isn’t all that short, as that was my first exposure to the character. I’ve never been concerned with scale anyways so I don’t mind if he’s core size, deluxe or whatever, I just want a Xaaron figure.

    Disappointed the Collect-Em-All hammer incentive is just a cardboard hammer.
    Would\'ve preferred a combo weapon a la the swords of every third party Predaking.

    So, with them all revealed I'm just in for Springer. Man, I'm such a comic/toy collector now.

    Yeah, but Geoff Senior and Jose Delbo had a better sense of scale and Xaaron was the same size as the Classic Pretenders and Double Targetmasters. (And Doubleheader as seen in those pics). So Deluxe is fine. Hell, using the Reflector mold is fine with me.
