    You're missing out and I doubt he's getting revisited his alt mode is too Lambo like.

    Yellow Sideswipe already has a name. It's "Tigertrack".

    In a way that just makes it seem more likely to me, given how little expense would be needed to retool it. Not to mention, him and the others getting their Earth modes would probably be the most popular retools Hasbro could make. It's still a damn good figure either way, but I've got no interest in buying Cybertronian cars and then replacing them later.

    So do I. I don't mind waiting, but I'd like all three of the Decepticon targetmasters as voyager class figures.

    I dont think this will be a complete reset, they're bringing a whole new faction. There's just not enough slots and they're not licensing cars. He's already a mini MP.

    That fits with these guys.

    Hopefully we'll get Sunstreaker


    New faction announced for Earthrise.

    I haven't been paying attention to the card game - has the artwork pretty much mirrored the figures? Because that Cybertonian Octone looks KILLER

    This set has been very consistant, but they've thrown quite a few curves in the previous sets. If Siege II has any real hints, I'd say HotRod, Acree, Detrius (Hound with a Roof), Deadlock (Springer repaint?) and Octone.

    I bet the new faction will be Cybertronian in style.

    it would be cool to see this retooled as scourge, i know it doesn't make sense but that truck mode would be a cool cybertronian take on his rid vehicle

    And yet the not-version took design cues from the actual character model.
    So essentially, HasTak took back what was theirs.;)

    I'm surprised they didn't show Earthrise Megatron. They always make sure to show Optimus.

    If they do a Earthrise Megatron what do you hope they make him? me personally i would like him to stick to a tank in my personal opinion him being a gun is stupid because he has to trust someone else to shoot

    Yea, I think using his g2 tank version would make the most sense for this line personally rather than trying to get his g1 bot mode out of a tank mode again

    I don't know how they'd improve Megatron. For me, Siege is close to perfect. Maybe if they just left off the weathering?

    I was just thinking since they made Galaxy Force Optimus they should make the Energon or Cybertron Megatron. Energon Megatron is my #1 favorite Megatron. That space ship cannot be topped!

    A deluxe Energon Megatron in a leader box for $50 would kick ass! Wait! What???:confused:
