    As I predicted, someone must've uttered something about a new G1 toon optimus prime.
    @Apollux what's the consequence for using a monkey paw to wish wreckgar39 back to life?

    I’ve got the ehobby Bat Convoy set. Mold is good, but because of the damn soft plastic used for the wings I’ve heard that it’ll melt and crack. Mine hasn’t shown symptoms yet; but it’s like ROTF Bludgeon where I’m rolling the D20 dice daily.
    Considering how they didn’t fix it in the retro reissue, I’m highly skeptical they actually fixed it for the crossover unless they completely retool the wings out.

    No, just a few people said that honestly I overreacted and that it was probably okay for me to come back, as long as I stayed vague and didn't steal thunder for reveals. If it deserves its own press, I'm not saying a word on it till here on out. It was wrong of me to rob you guys of a cool reveal with about a month left on the clock, to put it lightly. No more.
    Honestly man, I agree with you, and I probably should have made my leave final or at least longer. I really am not going to have the time I once had for this site in about a week. Today's moving day.

    Edit: I took this too literally and totally missed the reference. Point still stands.

    Okay, this is a weird crossover idea. Does he turn into a vampire bat? I'll probably pass on him. I haven't found these crossover Transformers anywhere in stores and most were out of my price range anyway.

    Haha sorry man I forgot that's a bit of a dated reference.

    Indeed I was joking about how now that you're back you might be even crazier than before :)

    Yeah, we found him half dead in Miami with Needlenose, Armada Prime and SS Devcon. I thought I used one of those massive heart needles they use on people who OD'd but I think I injected his heart directly with black tar heroin.

    I'm hoping Draculus is good. But all I got is hope...

    So I was in a Discord (belonging to a certain Youtuber who’s here *wink wink*)

    and this kind of sparked a discussion. Is it possible that we see a Core Class Thundercracker , Ratchet/Barricade repack/possible core? And technically yes the entire line has been leaked but with it now getting a fifth wave…Could it lead to a possible outcome?

    Any possibility of it being a Scourge retool? I know we’ve been speculating Mindwipe because he’s a bat, but Scourge is straight up Count Vibes.

    I bought Ectotron and Gigawatt. They're fine but the biggest appeal was the G1 packaging. I like Gigawatt better than Ecto but both look best in vehicle mode.

    I haven't bought any of the others. I wanted Ghostbusters Masterpiece Prime but he was only available for a hot minute and a half...and I've since learned I didn't really need him after all.

    It's not "speculating" that it's Mindwipe. It's known that it's Mindwipe.

    To be fair, it was also known that Collab J. Balvintron was a (possibly new) Blaster redeco, so it's not unheard of for the final product to be based on a different mold.

    Project Jam was "I think this is a blaster retool, at least from what I've heard." From Wreckgar39, who although has had a really good track record, has admittedly gotten a couple of specific details, such as mold usage, incorrect. Gen selects Deep Cover being the siege mold not Kingdom, SG Megs being siege and not ER, and then Project Jam specifically

    In this case it's "I've seen the grey scale prototype, it is a retool of Mindwipe." Which came from Apollux, who has stated that he doesn't like giving information too early so that he can give us the most accurate information he can.
