While I understand not using any UT figures in this year's lineup since they've basically expended most of their good options in passing years, I have to agree that CD Red Alert would have been perfect for it.

That's because in MW, There's Megatron, his clone/proxy Megaplex, and Galvatron simultaneously; the latter was ripped to shreds by Starscream, who's now wearing a shiny coat of black paint and Galvy's arm cannon as a trophy.

Should that image even be considered canon? I mean, it would be nice if FunPub worked that in and all, but it only appeared in a book as a piece of fan art.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower & Wedge
3) Energon Sledge, Duststorm, Bonecrusher & Wideload
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

*shrug* Considering how little MW 'cannon' there is, I'm all for it. That's how it stands now anyway, they'll likely be building it all from the ground up (which won't be hard, since there's barely anything to start with :lol: ).

I think they're just using old stock imagery for the silhouette picture.

I think they are going to be "adding to the Machine Wars Universe" so don't expect one for one updates of old designs.

That's what I'm hoping for, albeit as a guy with only a very passing interest in the idea at all. I'm always up for new characters.

BTB, wasn't there a Botcon Skyquake just two years ago? Some time recently. Maybe I'm mixing fictions, but would TFCC do another Skyquake so quickly after doing one already? It's not like he's as important as Bumblebee, where a constant stream of new figures is not only warranted but totally necessary....

I read that no Armada, Energon, or Cybertron molds would be used again. If that's true, then the answer is no.

It might be true, but I honestly hope it's not. I want a Machine Wars Soundwave from Cybertron Defense Red Alert.
