I doubt it. I think the digibashes on the first page are just showing both characters because we don't know which the one which isn't clearly Breakdown or Dragstrip is. I think Deadend and Wildrider will probably be different molds. The one on the right is clearly Breakdown-y, and I'd imagine Dragstrip will be fairly obvious, but the other two, in black and white, or grey, as the case may be, could be fairly difficult to distinguish. We'll see.
When images were first revealed during the con I remember reading that the bodies on these two would transform the same, just different alt modes. I believe it was also mentioned that the other two would be completely unique molds, but don't quote me on that
I just did.
Yeah, that makes sense, they're not dissimilar, so some retooling on the chest maybe, and a different head, and alt mode, and of course a different paint job, easily doable. We've seen how good FP is at retools and repaints in everything from the Bruticus upgrades, the upcoming variations on the Insecticons and even just the many flavours of City Commander and Protector.
