It's still pretty surprising how much it's been used since it's a Universe mold from '09, only the Sunstreaker mold surpasses it.

But yeah, get rid of the head and I see Metalhawk. It's just I only see Cyclonus and Cyclonus only when it's using that head sculpt (And Hasbro execs seem to agree, as we all know only 1 reiteration of the mold was called not Cyclonus)

Haven't read all ten pages of response, but I'm gonna go with Universe Cyclonus for Metalhawk and Universe Silverbolt for Overlord. Silverbolt could work, he's big, his alt mode is similar to Overlord's jet component, he has chest flaps, and like Overlord he has the forward section of a jet hanging off his body, Silverbolt just carries his on his back rather than his arm. Slap the colors on there and a new head and it could work. The rest of the set I'm not that excited about.

That's the only idea so far that COULD make sense.

To the guys who are hoping for a black SG Tracks: I share your hope, but on second thought it would be a bit unlikely, because Runabout, who uses the retooled Wheeljack mold, is also black.

If he's a former Seeker, he should be black with another color mixed in. Blurr had blue, Goldbug had yellow, Rodimus had purple. Maybe Tracks has red? Shoot, that would make him look even more like Runabout...

Why is everyone looking at Cyclonus for Metalhawk?! Their jet modes look absolutely nothing alike:

Metalhawk:

and Cyclonus:

And even with remolding, he'd still look like Cyclonus.

If I Remember correctly, "Comic Appearence" was mentioned a few pages back. Maybe he looks different in the comics?

Sad, but true. I say "sad" because I don't think the Universe Cyclonus is bulky enough to properly portray Overload. He's a big guy; not just in size, but in stature. ;)

Well, TFA The Motor Master was pretty close to Optimus Prime Black Version, who, while not a botCon figure, came out not to long before BotCon 2011.

And, weren't there two same-mold BotCon figures who looked similar released at the same Con one year? :-?

They can give him a remolded head too.

Yes, but Cyclonus' robot mode seems to be the only really good candidate to match Metalhawk's robot mode.
Image
Image

Their wings are even in a similar placement.

Now, yes, his altmode won't look exactly the same, but this is supposed to be Classicverse Metalhawk, not Wings Universe Metalhawk (who was killed, BTW). Not everyone in the Classicverse looks exactly like their G1 bodies. Look at Devastator, for example.
Image

Unless, of course, you have a better suggestion for Metalhawk? ;)

JelZe GoldRabbit wrote:He still looked like G1 Metalhawk in Wings comics, but with the helmet of his Pretender shell.
Again, this is Classicverse, not Wing Universe. Wings Universe Metalhawk is dead.

:lol: PM

Seriously though, Metalhawk could work, given an alternate nosecone and wings, Sabreblade. But I say a seekermold could also work.

(Then again, they could have also made Jetfire into Leozack.)

Hey guys, I'm generally more of a lurker than anything else, but I had to make a suggestion of my own regarding the observation some people made about there being more figures than usual in this set.

As I understand it, Cyclonus is gang-molded with Nightstick, and he seems to be the likely candidate for Metalhawk. So what of Nightstick? Well, Action Master Treadshot IS based on a pre-transformer gun-former. That would explain the number of figures I believe...

Incidentally, I can't claim this observation as my own. It came from a friend when I brought up the question of what would become of Nightstick if Cyclonus were used.

Perhaps all the Nightsticks went to Million Publishing Stepper...

Maybe Nightsick is removable from the mold like the alternate heads...

Treadshot from Nightstick would definitely explain the presence of six figures instead of five. And, it would make sense since Treadshot is a Heroic Decepticon, so if he teamed of with Metalhawk (from Cyclonus) it would work out.

IMHO,I don't think the Classics 2.0 deluxe toy mold will be used for botcon 2011 overlord nor metalhawk.

Because the classics cyclonus toy can't get a newer 100% head sculpt on it. due to the robot ears connecting around the jet nose in jet mode.

IMHO,If botcon 2011 uses the classics cyclonus mold,it can't have a new head. it'll just be a repaint with no remolded parts.

Because the classics cyclonus toy can't get a newer 100% head sculpt on it. due to the robot ears connecting around the jet nose in jet mode.

IMHO,If botcon 2011 uses the classics cyclonus mold,it can't have a new head. it'll just be a repaint with no remolded parts.
They can shape the new head to fit into the nosecone slots or even fit around them. Or they can just remold the nosecone slots themselves to accommodate a new head.

That custom Metalhawk from Cyclonus that was shown here has a new head that fits around the nosecone slots without difficulty.

Phew, that custom is legit. If that's potentially what will be in the set, then lucky for those attending!
