  1. The Velocitron Hot Rod will be a shelf warmer. He’s a minor repaint of SS86 with a couple less accessories, but at a Voyager price point. Forget it, I got SS86 and that’s all I needed. Would have considered it if it was the decepticon, shattered glass or “crystal” version, but he is basically the exactly the same as previous release.

  2. That is the SS-97 Ironhide that was already announced - see here

  3. I think that they mislabel Ironhide in one of the display images... Or leaked a planned repaint?

  4. IMO giving him his Target Master would have been a good idea. At least more people would probably pick him up

  5. There are videos for Blanker, Skullgrin and Crankcase, too: I'm wondering now if the final production version of Skullgrin has a pink or purple chest...

  6. I was trying to see if there was any clues in the crowd. There aren't any really just some interesting stuff. The RID Decepticons are using their "G1" forms and not their UW forms. Chromia, Arcee and Nightbird are using their Legends/T30 forms and not their newer WFC forms. Parasite is also there but nobody else from his boxset. Yes Parasite and not Skywasp as that's the original name and most importantly, that's the Parasite head on it. Gravedigger aka United EX Buildmaster is also there in between Devastator's legs with Parasite. So there's eight Constructicons total when you also count Road Hauler. Road Pig is there which is nice to see. The Stunticons are there but no Breakdown, not that Takara was going to reveal him here. There's a really nice bit of continuity shown here in that the Titans Return Chaos on Velocitron set is here despite Takara not releasing it. Nautica, Quickswitch, Laser Prime using his Legacy form instead of his TR form and even Fastlane using his deco from that set instead of his Takara Legends deco. I love that Cybertron Metroplex's foot and ankle is just there. Just one. It doesn't even look possible to have the other leg anywhere either. You'd see the foot if it were on the other side of Motormaster and it can't go the other way either as it would be on the barricade or the racetrack at that point. I have since found Cosmos and Clampdown. I picked up two Clampdown actually so that I could swap the white hinges onto Red Alert as I said I was going to. I hate working with that mold though, there's no easy/good way to get to the other side of the pin for the shoulders like there was on the Siege version. So you have to leave the miscolored inner shoulder joint by popping them off at the shoulder swivel where it connected to the transformation hinge. I managed to get one of Sideswipe's inner shoulder pins out when I tried but couldn't get the other so I had to do the other way. I couldn't get any from Red Alert or Clampdown to move so again, I went the other way. I just really hate pins that can't be extracted once they're inserted. Reflector has a couple of those as well. I now know after messing with him from looking at that "custom" that was shown a while back about using one as a replacement for Cybertron Drillbit for Metroplex. I had a Reflector 3 pack that had some issues and BBTS made me destroy them before sending me a replacement. So I still had the destroyed figures lying around and decided to see what I could do with them to make my own version of Drillbit. While taking them apart to fix them I found out that the two pins in the torso can't be taken out without breaking some pieces internally. It's not like the figure doesn't hold together without those pins so I went and broke all the insides of the torsos taking them apart. Now I have them ready to paint if I ever get around to it. I think I fixed them enough to get two good figures out of the three. There's one that I broke in such a way that can't be fixed with just some glue. Oh well, they're free figures anyway.

  7. So they used the artwork of Legacy Core class Hot Rod for his packaging...

  8. Scraplets? And female Skywarp? And Optimus wielding a wrench (that transforms into his battle axe)?

  9. This honestly just looks like Hasbro is grasping for straws here. We've already gotten 3 Hot Rods within 2 years (Kingdom Rodimus Prime, Kingdom Hot Rod, and SS Hot Rod). I would rater have a Deception repaint of him, like they did with Mirage into Crasher.

  10. I was thinking that Scraphook might be a constructicon. Hasbro could go the route of third-party companies like Magic Square and Newage and release the constructicons in the form of three two-packs. "Scraphook" could be a way of saying "Scrapper and Hook." Also, a two-pack might be the reason for it being the only listing without a size class.
