    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.

    That was told to @wreckgar39. Draculus' engineering proto was seen by @Apollux. Plus the description mentions that he has a gun and a claw, which are the same accessories as Mindwipe.

    Does anyone else wish that the Amazon truck was Motormaster instead of Optimus Prime?

    If they do the other Universal Monsters, which molds would work for which monster?

    Wolfwire for the werewolf
    Maybe Skullsmasher for the thing or the creatures from the black lagoon?
    Hardhead for Frankenstein?

    The current rumor is that we might potentially see a Wolfman from TR Weirdwolf and a Creature from the Black Lagoon from Skullcruncher if Draculus sells well.

    Nothing new on SG Jetfire yet, is there?

    I'm holding out hope it's actually black/purple Commander class repaint but that seems optimistic.

    That’s insane if it is Mindwipe when the Amazon listing had a price of $90+
