    I can easily see this being retooled into some female bots...like, say, Slipstream.

    You gotta think some of the people in this thread must not have anything about TF they like if they've got all the time to spend here shitting on something they don't like instead of being elsewhere talking about what they like.

    Only *based* on the mold, much like Ecto/Watt. Like I said, unless they invented a brand new mold for this guy (Which would explain the cost, I guess) there's something else this skeleton is going to be used on.

    I respectfully disagree that Maverick will be any type of pretool for a dreadwing. Especially since he is not a very well known character (IE Not in season 1-4 of G1) and he got a pretty good figure in POTP. I could be wrong, but is Maverick a retool of Leader CW Starscream or Thrillin 30s Jetfire?

    If this sells decently and so does Gigawatt, then maybe we'll get more inspired collaborations like KITT, the '89 Batmobile, or the General Lee - oh wait no, not that last one at this moment

    If he is, then that'd explain the $50 price point because then he'd be Leader class. But I don't think he is because his Pulse listing says "7 inches." That's the same default listing for Voyagers.

    I'm hoping these are just prototype plastics

    Doesn’t look like it, transformation for this looks simpler by comparison.

    Yeah, I would love if people said that they're happy with the people that like it and then state what they don't like about it. Why is it that they also need to insult the opinions of others?

    I assume that's a quote from the movie? If not...ew.
    We've been over this a million times already. It's clearly a new mold, but likely Hasbro are planning more figures using this mold engineering that will come out later, so it's a preview of a new tooling.

    Right?

    "huh, not for me."

    Then they go off to some other thread/subforum to talk about something they enjoy.

    is it an all new mold like how Ectotron is a major retool of CW Hot Spot or is it an all new mold like how G1 Hot Rod was brand new and never had any elements used in any figure before hand

    I\'ve always been a fan of these Macross inspired plane transformers. 
    i had a Valkyrie in 1981 or 82...
    I have all episodes of Macross on my Mac. This one has peaked my interest

    ...an "all-new" mold is one that is completely original. Ectotron isn't an "all-new" mold, and neither is Gigawatt.
