Because that looks like garbage.
It's a terrible ROTF Megatron retool.
But then again seeing that tank mode is strange and makes me wonder about things.
Why can't he look like Starscream with Megatron's old body?
At least he doesn't resemble Starscream
that sure is gutcruncher.
I have a feeling this is blitzwing in the movie
Who's gonna tell him
Bludgeon doesn't want him biting his style.
While retooling megatron's mold for blitzwing is not making any sense,does this imply that he will turn into a tank in the movie? Otherwise why tf hasbro release a toy based on bee movie's con whose alt.mode looks nothing alike?
I agree 1000%
Oh wow yeah a big spikey mess, that's cool. Not a cool slick iconic design like the one in the actual movie that got tons of casual fans burnt from the usual Bay-Aesthetic back on board.
It mostly looks bad because it's from some gimmick-hampered subline. It actually looks okay for what it is (and if they'd added some purple to the color scheme, I could like it more).
If they'd done a decent triple-changing ROTF Megatron (which I often thought they should have), that would've made a ideal Blitzwing retool. Not the Bumblebee movie Blitzwing obviously, but a reasonable approximation of what a triple-changing movieverse Blitzwing could be. The main problem would be the asymmetric arms.
When i look at the picture from a far, the heada for me looks like waspinator.
When i look at the head and everything else, then everything is awfull
So will this be his form in the movie? Or will he just be a seeker?
Don't you mean Starscream?
That's a toy. And that toy is based off Megatrons TF2 mode.
If Blitzwing was the main villain in the film, surely he'd be a triple changer. Kind of like this fella
This doesn't necessarily confirm Blitzwing is a tank in the film - this could just be them playing fast and lose with the name. Especially since as pointed out, it's a Gutcruncher homage instead of being in the traditional purple-tan-and-yellow of Blitzwing, or even the battleship gray w/ red trim of the actual on-screen movie model.
This isn't the first time they've released toys of a figure who turned into things that didn't line up with the film. Of the Dreads, only Crankcase got the 'secret service' SUV alt. mode - the quadreped got some kinda harrier drone thing in Cyberverse legion scale and I don't even remember who the third guy was or if he even got a toy whatsoever. Laserbeak's two figures - the deluxe and the pack-in with HA Soundwave - turn into a (vaguely Beast Machines Obsidian esque) VTOL and some kinda hoverbike for Douchebag McRich to ride, neither form being accurate to the film either.
And then there's Cyberfire Bumblebee. At no point in DOTM does his Camaro mode turn into something that looks like the Mythbusters JATO-powered Cadillac and the Mad Max Interceptor had an illegitimate bastard child inside the Hot Wheels factory, nor does he have murderous red eyes and wield a chainsaw type weapon.
Same reason they released a Voyager Drift as the helicopter...which looks nothing like the helicopter in the film but is in fact a repainted DOTM guy who wasn't even in THAT film.
And they DID create a new mold that's supposed to resemble the helicopter in AoE, too, so AoE Voy. Drift is just lazy.
i think there's going to be a jet version of Blitzwing in the line too. This had the code name 'Hornet 2' which implies there's a 'Hornet 1'. I think they just did this to get extra mileage out of the Megatron mould and as nod to every other version of Blitzwing ever turning into a tank. I'm guessing the jet version of Shatter will be retooled into Blitzwing. From what we've seen in the trailers, though, he has no tank parts so probably is just a jet.
