    I wonder if Draculus will be the first-ever Collaborative Decepticon?

    Technically, in fiction Gigawatt starts as a Decepticon and at least through the 3rd issue hasn't officially joined the Autobots

    Kind of disappointed Rexy is not one of the leaks. But interesting to see all those figures are main release for the most part. A ton of them feel like Generations Selects candidates.

    I'm interested in Draculus. Question is, is he a bat? A coffin? A hearse? (I'm thinking, Ectotron remold). I'm also hoping they remold one of the the Beast formers into a werewolf as well.

    As for Amazon Prime, at one time, I'd have got it ASAP for the novelty. I actually liked Amazon. But the people I know who worked for Amazon don't describe it as one of their favourite experiences (basically it was, nice facilities, the guys in charge, not so much., I wasn't aware of anything like this until then but it seems Amazon have something of a rep). I guess Amazon Prime won't be at the top of my Wanted list.

    Still a headmaster? Or has he been retooled to remove the gimmick?

    Did they at least retool his lower body to have waist swivel and ankle tilt? Considering how significant of a retooling the other collaborative figures got.

    I don’t plan getting the Sweep, but I’m still really curious to see what it will look like, since they were identical to Scourge. I’m not sure what they could do apart from a different shade of blue I guess.

    Nothing obvious from the grey-scale pics I've seen.

    I originally thought that might be the case, but I thought it might be too obvious - and easy. The other Collaborative figures involve extensive remolding, apart from the one all new figure.

    Also, Mindwipe reminded me of Dracula, anyway. Since, Hastak do seem to be going with TR Mindwipe, I hope they keep the Headmaster gimmick.

    I am a bit disappointed they aren't using a proper Beastformer as a base, but I can't really complain about them making something I actually wanted back in the day - that is, a TR Mindwipe-based Dracula figure.

    The funny thing is, I was looking at my Retro Weirdwolf and Skullcruncher, the other day, and wishing we'd d got more remold/repaints of the TR Beast Headmasters.

    Speaking of Beast Headmasters, I’d do anything for a Transformers X Zoids mash-up!

    Another thing on my longtime wish list. When Tomy (Zoids) and Takara (Transformers) merged years back, I'd been hoping that would happen.

    I'd get an Amazon Prime, but I don't usually do dupes and I've already got a dead...I mean, sleeping Prime. This Draculus though, I want. And especially if, as someone else said, they make a creature one. I'm really really hoping that the heads are still robot-like and not an actual human type head. I want robot Dracula and robot Creature. Not some weird hybrid thing with a robot body and a real head. :(

    Yeah, that's the main reason I avoided those Street Fighter crossover Trsnsformers. I wasn't a big fan of the 'flesh' effect.

    Is that really what it is going to be? I was really hoping for a more cartoon accurate Galvatron.
