While I always like when transformers from other series are thrown into G1, I would love to see anyone but Rattrap, the most annoying tf outside of the Unicron trilogy and the movies. I never liked his look either. I mean robots with buck teeth, c'Mon! But then like the movies, robots in disguise does away with the traditional tf look and lumps any generic robot look in as a cybertronian like the movies did. On a lighter note that painted cover with the Terrorcons looks amazing.

Omega Supreme! I called it! And I hope Galvatron beats Magnus to death, and this time the supposed "greatest warrior" stays dead. I'm sick of that guy.

An Autobot hoping Galvatron beats Magnus to death? Undoubtedly so Rodimus Prime can be the one to save the day instead! I'm on to you, you conniving powermonger.

The Spotlight collection is already up for preorder on Amazon. Soon... yes, very soon.

First Waspinator, now Rattrap? I don't understand what's going on anymore. :???:

I never liked Magnus. The only good thing about him was Robert Stack.
