    Thats a good thing. Its Shattered Glass done right without the stupid repurposing that Funpub was forced to endure. "Oh we havent created a mold for that character yet so pick something from the Unicron Trilogy molds". Likely Hasbro/Funpub was scared to use the 2006 nerf gun mold in 2008 because of the gun controversy. Screw that Galvatron crap, 13 years later almost every G1 character has a proper mold and they can do it the way it was intended without repurposing.

    Most of the Grimstone dinos from PCC have an analog in the existing squad they could be retooled from.

    I'm gonna take a guess (if its not a placeholder name) that Ranger Puffer is actually Road Ranger, but they couldn't get the name rights, so they combined two names as a small reference

    my current prediction is that terrorsaur was planned for the mainline but was moved to an exclusive like er soundwave and bee rather than being a remold of airazor

    Yes, but isn’t it a leader price point?

    I am anxious to know if it will be a remold of Airazor, That Pteranodon Fossilizer, a new mold or a repaint of an unwanted figure.

    I saw the name "Ranger Puffer" and thought for a second about a pufferfish transformer. Sadly I know that's not what it'll be. :(

    Except Bee and Soundwave were both remolds as well. Exclusives don't typically sell enough to justify a brand new mold, so I doubt this Terrorsaur will be something completely new. Even just an Airrazor redeco would have to be significant - new heads, wings, back, chest, tail, shoulders.

    I have a feeling Terrorsaur is going to be a remold of airazor. It might work well I guess.

    I'll gladly take a Road Ranger, but want Glyph and Tapout even more.

    I was thinking about this, and I actually think you could use Airazor's base engineering and make it work. It would be the kind of "retool" that doesn't share a lot of parts, just the engineering.

    I can think of a relatively easy way to manage it, actually. Keep the same basic principles, but add a single panel at the two hinges that allow Airazor's wing backpack to move up and down relative to the rest of her torso. Put a swivel on that new panel so the entire wing assembly can rotate 180 degrees. Have the beast head and tail pieces attached to the wing backpack, and come up with some way to rotate the tail piece down onto the chest but which still lets you rotate the head out of the torso. You could just faux chest it, if that's cheaper, and just tuck the beast tail out of the way somewhere.

    I suck at describing it, but I can picture it it clearly in my head. And if I can, then an actual designer working with CAD definitely can. Think Earthrise Wheeljack to Earthrise Sunstreaker. Same basic skeleton, but substantially different execution of the tools it gives them.

    The only question is will they spend the money to do it.

    The weight and price point to it being 2 Deluxes, probably Road Ranger and Puffer.

    So this is what Puffer Ranger is supposed to be. I've never heard of him before. Is it a new character>

    i know exclusives dont sell as much which is why netflix line stuck to redecos, my point was that the bee remold and the soundwave retool were put in it because there wasn't room in the main line, it's still possible that it'll be a retool but at this point it would have to change more than retools like er soundwave, as you mentioned they'd have to remold all bird detailing and the head, in addition they'd have to completely rework the placement and transformation of the alt head

    Well, technically he's a E-Hobby G1 take on a Gobot, the lore involves them being a group of dimensional refugees.
