    But that doesn't make sense either. Hasbro was COMMITTED to pushing new members as they wanted to foster a new generation of fiction for kids rather than pushing G1.

    THey didn't give a damn what people thought about Alpha Bravo, Off Road or Rook. That was what their plan was and for the most part they stuck with it. If "Blastoff" was "Take-Off" or whatever people like to call him nowadays I don't think people would be nearly as pissed off as they are now.

    I don't give a damn what people call it - CW "Blast Off" to me is "Sir Blastington of Take-Offshire" and nobody can stop me.

    My stand-in Bruticus will be my FOC Bruticus w/ the Boosticus upgrade until I get my UW Takara Bruticus. Hasbro got me to buy FOC Bruticus. I'll give Takara my money for a proper Bruticus.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don't I think. No matter Hasbro called the brown Aerialbot, some section of fans was going to be unhappy.

    Many around here have, including myself. The child in me also wants him to sound like Dave Thomas.

    Was already expecting a shuttle, but even with that small pic... seeing Blast Off without that lazy Slingshot head brings a smile to my face.

    No. The people pissed about CW Blast Off would be just as pissed off, if not more. As demonstrated by what happened with Alpha Bravo/Offroad/Rook. Because one way or another they'd be mad it wasn't a shuttle named Blast-Off.

    From what I get the part that pissed people off is the lack of a character specific head, that people who are otherwise receptive towards the new members didn't like cuz it was just a straight up Slingshot repaint. If he was just a new guy instead of Blast Off I don't think the head thing would nearly be as much of an issue.

    Hm, I think I may end up swapping some of the UW Bruticus limbs.
