    No mention of Magnaboss, so hopefully there's no combiner engineering added to hamper Skywarp!

    Excited to see the pics when this set drops!

    I'd love elephant Ironhide even if he didn't combine, but I feel like the fact they're using the Japanese character/name instead of Silverbolt probably means this is going to be a one-off.

    Here's to hoping I'm wrong, though!

    Party hard at the mention of Beast Wars II in writing, even when Hasbro misses on these like the Uprising Grimlock reference its still nice to see they're doing some cursory research!

    NOW - where the hell did you end up Nightprowler?

    Will this Skywarp be as hard to acquire as the Siege one was? :lol 

    Make sure to pre-order once he goes up people, if only to avoid the Skywarp Amazon curse. ;)

    I get the impression we're going to get a Skywarp, a Santon, and a Lio Jr and it's going to end up being retools of Rhinox and Tigatron rounding out the trio before a real Magnaboss comes later.

    With who? There's no corresponding molds to go with him. Rhinox has nothing suggesting a combination and besides Tigatron we don't have any big cats in the pipeline.

    God willing this one will be on Pulse as well. Reading people who had their Wave 2 Kingdom POs cancelled on Target makes me feel better about re-upping Premium.

    My guess is they're calling him "Skywarp" because they don't want to cause confusion later when we have Maximal Silverbolt based on the show character. We already know there's more BW coming and besides the three S1 Predacons there's no way to expand unless they crack open S2 and 3.

    Of note's the fact that the steps for Skywarp are the same as Airazor's. So now it's confirmed that he's a retool (even though it's kinda obvious).
    Has anyone who's been lucky enough to get a Rhinox been able to jury-rig something that's similar to Ironhide/Santon?

    my hope is that if this sells well and we continue to be vocal about magnaboss then maybe it'll happen

    Hoping Skywarp has at least new bird head that makes him look like an Eagle.

    Will probably repurpose as pre-fuzor Silverbolt if the other two aren’t getting figures. Still think we could get Stanton/Ironhide from Rhinox and Prowl from Cheetor or Tigatron.

    If you mean simply looking like Santon? It's easy enough. The fake lower jaw transformers in a similar fashion to the original figure's chest. Santon's beast feet also form his bot hands/feet. And while the original split his beast head in to shoulder pads...the retool could simply retract on to his back like Rhinox's and allow his tusks to come over the shoulders.

    As far as actually combining? They'd have to DRAMATICALLY change how Magnaboss formed. Because nothing suggests Rhinox is able to split in such a way he could wrap around anything to form both the arms and legs.

    I can't believe they've acknowledged BWII exists.

    fine; they went and made Sideswipe SLIGHTLY different so he can qualify as an "Earth Mode." Will everybody shut the fuck up about it now?!

    I mean, to make a new Magnaboss you'd really only need a new mold Ironhide elephant since almost all of the combiner was in the original BW Ironhide/Santon and Prowl/Silverbolt just connected to eachother then slid into Ironhide. Maybe remold Cheetor with a new robot head and a lion mane with swappable beast and combiner faces and handwave the scrawniness with it being LioJunior.
