    I remember back in the Energon and Cybertron days it wasn't always only for a better paint app but also to get the toys six months earlier than the eventual Hasbro release here in the states.

    Deep Cover and Elita-1 are so far my most wanted. Deep Cover for being a great Diaclone homage and Elita-1 for having a none combiner version of her.

    Speaking of Diaclone homages; am I the only one itching to see Siege Sideswipe remolded in yellow! :)

    While I was digging someone showed me this image and is it me or are they different, the headsculpts dont match and the backs are different too.

    Could it be Ariel and Elita? Prob overthinking it a bit but depending on which one they do it looks like one is close to the Chromia mold and the other is closer to the Arcee mold.

    Tigertrack, yes! And then Red Alert as Clamp Down. And then ER Sunstreaker in Red (I guess now Spinout) and Cordon.

    If the rumors of this lineup prove true... I've gotta say I'm less than enthusiastic about a line of essentially redo's of earlier figures but with more distressed paint jobs. Part of the fun of 'toon versions in a given universe is new product. Cyberverse may be a recognizable cast of TF characters, but what gets produced as toys is all new. That appeals to me. Sideswipe or Reflector in different paint and not even a new head? Not so much.

    (Especially since no way that mold is replacing Uni Sunstreaker)

    I'd take Tigertrack if they remembered he exists and made him. Normally I'd say wait for Takara, but Hasbro has been surprising me lately with their interest in bringing "Japanese only" characters stateside.

    I\'m really hoping that bee is around the same scale as the cliffjumper and here\'s to hoping the elita-1 isn\'t another one of the moonracer remolds

    Well we didn't get it where I live..would've been filled with Chromias, Megatron and whatever peg warmed....and then they'd have to put Studio Series figures in since they NEVER stock up on much...

    If this is legit, Bumblebee, Wheeljack and Barricade are must gets for me. I'm really hoping they do an Optimus for this line now

    He's totally outclassed by Sunstreaker. A new Swipe that can slim the chest down, have more accurate legs and doors on forearms would look more Toony and match Sunstreaker better. As well as open doors and headlights like Sunstreaker.

    For now the Badcube steam roll is filling in as V2 Swipe doing all that including integrated cannon and gun in car mode like Hound does.

    I looked at that nostaligic box art, I already thought that these were the first rumors about the MP version of that character.

    Then I realized that this is a simple deluxe WFCS Netflix version of this character...

    Fingers crossed Elita1 is based on ER Arcee. I could see it going both ways... either they do a lazy retool of Siege Chromia, or quality repaint of a good ER Arcee retool we just haven't seen yet. Hopefully the latter...

    the details between shots all match up (bunny ears, forehead light square octagon shoulders, angles of the back kibble), I think it's just the angles creating abs optical illusion that they are different shapes.

    I think it's ER Arcee with a new head, shoulders, and maybe upper torso.

    Hmm this looks really interesting, though I did hope they would release a Skytread with a nice paint update

    That's what I'm thinking too, considering the models in the series are literally the CAD models the toys are based on, or a straight-up copy of those, and Elita's backpack while bulky definately doesn't match Chromia's gigantic hump.
