Not feeling these straight Cyberverse redecos but I don't think it matters to kids as the ones buying these now probably don't have the older one. Although if they want to make Thunderhowl in some new colors I'll be okay with that. Either mold. Maybe Meteorfire and Wildwheel.

Just listed online is the product listing and images for the Transformers EarthSpark 1-Step Changer Breakdown figure. If this guy looks familiar, it is because that is the Wheeljack mold that has been repainted for the new character. The figure is listed at $9.97 USD with an "Out of stock" status, that may or maynot ever come up for ordering, knowing Walmart. - Read the Full News Story

Wow... that's some lazy stuff right there. Wheeljack was not a good choice to match Breakdown's look.

That 1-step Breakdown barely looks any different than Wheeljack. 

Let's take the white car with red stripes and redco him into the other white car with red stripes. Who's next from this mold, Drift? You know, the other, other white car with red stripes. What about Jazz? Or maybe Runamuck? Downshift? Clamp Down, Prowl, Red Alert, Tailgate, Quickshadow, Searchlight, Streetwise, Cordon, Getaway, Deadlock, Hans-Cuff, Crasher, Jig Saw and whoever else. Just get all them white cars from the same mold.

Damn, those look really good.

This is my second attempt at a comment about this. The first draft went on about how there wasn't any forward shoulder movement and how that could've been changed had the base robots had thigh swivels which turned into bicep swivels for robot mode. Think Animated Safeguard made from Jetfire and Jetstorm who totally should've been named Firestorm (but we know they couldn't as G1 Firestorm had her name changed to Novastorm) or at least Stormfire but I digress. It would've made for a roundabout way to have the combined mode arms to move forward and sideways but it worked.

But then I keep looking and spotted a picture with the arms moved forward. It looks as though each half of the pelvis is on its own little swivel. Those allow for the forward movement.

Well played designers, well played. Still it would be nice if they had thigh swivels but it's fine. It's only slightly limiting and these are cheaper figures that needed to have four modes so something had to be cut. And if it had to be anything to get those much better shoulder joints then thigh swivels was a good thing to cut.

I very much look forward to getting these now. And I think that these are the prototypes for the Energon Autobots. A while back in one of the livestreams I remember the Transformers team mention that they are looking into doing Energon/Superlink figures but wanted to keep them as combiners and that, along with people generally not liking that series, was what was holding them up for the most part. With these, it looks like they're putting their research into prototype form and testing the waters for Energon/Superlink toys with these as well as the beautiful Energon Megatron core class figure.

So as long as these are well received, and I don't see why they wouldn't as they do really look good, we might finally get some Energon/Superlink characters after Legacy United. 

I didn't love Energon. In fact, I didn't even watch it. I did have the toy though since Toy R Us put them on a two for one clearance. So of course I went in an cleaned them out. I may have grew up with G1 but want all characters to get updated because I just want some cool toys. Combiners are cool toys. So long as they don't suck. Even then, combiners can still suck and be cool toys. There's just something about combiners. 

I just wonder if those drone things have alt modes. That one has wings and these two drones really should be swapped with the bigger one going with Bumblebee and the smaller one going with Twitch. But it looks like that can be fixed after the fact. It should also mean that the drones can combine with each other and that Bumblebee and Twitch can combine. I might have to pick up multiple sets as I like those drones and their ability to combine. They'd make for some great troop builders. But that means getting a bunch of Bumblebees and Twitches that I wouldn't want. Well I'd probably keep two of each to combine with themselves but that's it.

Seriously though, bring on the Energon boys. I want a double Jetfire combiner. Or rather a Jetfire and Overcast combiner. And please for the love of Primus make Ironhide not suck again. Or Optimus if they do a version of him in that style again. It could also explain why they haven't done the obvious Tow-Line retool from Earthrise Ironhide yet. Other than the name being used for that shitty RID 2001 Junkion Tow-Line currently. I just got one the other day and I fucking hate it. He is never going on my Junkasaurus. Green asshole looks nothing like the character he's meant to be. The Junkions suck too as they can barely even utilize their own gimmick.

Redecoing Cyberverse Hot Rod into Prowl is such an odd choice, especially because there was a Cyberverse Prowl. I see why with the chest deco and slight similarity to the head sculpt. My brain initially says no, but it is kind of an interesting curiosity.
