Kapow! Toys has shared a very interesting image via their Facebook page that appears to reveal ten potential repaint/remolds from Takara Tomy. The figures are listed 1 through 10 and include the following:

Update:Apparently this is an image from the latest Transformers Generations book from Million Publishing, and this is a poll to select upcoming Million Publishing exclusives.

  1. Alpha Trion using the Generations Scourge mold
  2. The Fallen using the Generations FoC Onslaught mold
  3. Sunstreaker Police Type using the Universe Sunstreaker mold
  4. Smokescreen using the Universe Smokescreen mold
  5. Autobot Drift Black Version using the Generations Drift mold
  6. Omnibot Overdrive using the Universe Smokescreen mold
  7. Ominbot Camshaft using the Generations Wheeljack mold
  8. Omnibot Downshift using the Universe Ironhide mold
  9. Beast Wars Silverbolt using the Beast Hunters Grimwing mold
  10. Goshooter using the Generations Nightbeat mold

What line these are intended for is unknown, but some very interesting and welcomed choices. Well keep you updated as more information comes in on these.

I would totally buy BW Silverbolt!

The others look cool, too, but not too exciting. I like that they're doing Omnibots, but I'm not sure if those are the best molds to use for them.

Repainting a Scourge into Alpha Trion? Well it's about damn time.

And maybe you'd have to both love the '88 toyline more than any other year of TF, and just happen to have received him and no other Decepticon for Christmas that year to feel this way, but I'd really much rather have Grimwing repainted into Flamefeather. Yes, it'd be pretty close to Darksteel, but FF stood proud and...well...short for 2 and a half decades as the closest thing to a Transformer gryphon before that Ursagryph mold came in for the tie, so he's due.

Maybe a head remold will sell me on it being Silverbolt, but Tigerhawk would honestly work a bit better.

I hope these are all in the works because they look worthwhile...except Autobot Drift Black Version. Maybe not the exact same idea as SG Drift, but still redundant.

I guess I can see why they did Wheeljack the way they did, the back will open for weapons deployment, but Overdrive was a FLYING CAR,too much to ask the flying car mold get used for the FLYING CAR guy?

Diaclone character


Before Transformers the G1 Sunstreaker toy was released in Diaclone in two variants: red and the white "Police Type". It's the white one that this choice is based on.
Remove the Superchanger and switch the head, and he could double as either RiD Prowl or eHobby Clamp Down :lol:

Downshift was a flying car as well, Camshaft had the rear weapon deployment. It helps to know that in Japan their names are switched (so Downshift is silver, Camshaft is white). Downshift being a silver Ironhide may have its roots in RiD X-Brawn.

I'm down with Alpha Trion, the Omnibots, and Silverbolt. But while I appreciate the thought of Onslaught being the Fallen, must it be the Fall of Cybertron mold? Surely a character like the Fallen deserves more than a cheeky redeco of a figure with a flawed robot and vehicle mode.

Just makes me want to go out and buy a Universe (2008) Onslaught and get it customized into the Fallen...

id like to see...

Alpha Trion using the Generations Scourge mold-
i have the old botcon version, but i could see him being replaced by this. might look strange with devcon sharing the mold now.

Smokescreen using the Universe Smokescreen mold-
its be cool to have a smokescreen to go with dreadwind(wing?) even if it is a car instead of another plane mold.

Beast Wars Silverbolt using the Beast Hunters Grimwing mold-
i have no idea where he's go in my collection, but id be down. loves me some beast wars.

Oh, we have to vote for one? Then, yeah, Alpha Trion, no-brainer.

I like the Omnibots, but I REALLY don't like the Universe Ironhide/Ratchet mold, even if it does evoke Cam...(?!)-shift more than I thought possible.

And I agree, the FOC Fallen choice is just odd. Who would he logically combine with? Just the other Combaticons painted black with purple highlights and said to be random corpses reanimated by dark energon? Hmmmm, now that I think about it, that would be a bit more appealing than some of the new Kreon gestalt teams we're getting...super-evil dude keeps tacking corpses onto himself like Leviathan or...Legion! Yeah, let's redeem that name from being just Fandom's worst memory of Kiss Players!

I would absolutely love me some Omnibots, though I agree I don't like the Ironhide mold for Downshift. I get the X-Brawn connection, but then again, there's also a history of Wheeljack and Downshift replacing each other as toys.
I'd rather Downshift still feel at least a little like the old Celica/Supra, not Ironhide.
Still, if they make them, I'll get all three.

Motto: "I am the seeker of power."
Weapon: Razor Tipped Wing Swords
I've seen someone mod a Drift/Blurr mold so that it has a waist joint. If whoever is doing these can remold the torso of that mold to have a rotating waist above the hinge for the windshield, and below as to actually have a working waist joint, then that mold can look like a pretty good Overdrive.

For transformation you'd spin it around at the new joint above the hinge and end up putting the windshield over the clasp for the large sword/gun that's supposed to be on the back. You'd also spin the arms around 180 degrees so that the elbows bend the correct way (the wheels on the inside of the arms don't get in the way), switch the fist and turn the head. What this all would accomplish is make the car front shoulder kibble point forward kinda like the IDW Bumblebee/Nightbeat mold. While it's not quite a car front on the chest like it's supposed to be, it's the visual cues in robot mode along with what the alt mode can do that will make this.

In alt mode, if you detach the doors and lower them down and fold over the windows, they look like wings. They also happen to be in the correct location of the wings of G1 Overdrive. If they're really feeling inventive, there is a lot of room under the front of the car where the head is for some type of weapon to be stored there that can be deployed if you open up the front end like you're transforming it for robot mode. That new weapon can also be deployed over the chest in robot mode making it look even more like the G1 version. As a bonus, having the arms backwards means the shoulder kibble would move above the head instead of below when you move the arms forward so that they're out of the way and no longer bump into the back of the figure.

Those of you with a shattered glass Drift (or regular or Blurr) could switch the arms at the shoulders to better see what I'm getting at.

Camshaft aka Downshift as Wheeljack can only be more perfect if it was a new mold dedicated to the character.

Downshift aka Camshaft as Ironhide though, is different. Someone said that it could homage X-Brawn and if that's the case it's fine so long as they're using the shattered glass Soundwave retool. However that is unlikely as the Asian three pack releases of Ironhide and Ratchet don't seem to. If it's not meant to be an homage then Classics Bumblebee might be a better choice. The arms can be deployed in car mode like the G1 toy and they could even retool the jet ski into a missile pack that can attach to the spoiler of the car mode.

Alpha Trion looks amazing.

FoC Fallen, too small. I'd rather see the new "leader" class Megatron redid as the Fallen without even having seen the mold yet. Someone said to use the Universe Onslaught mold instead. Maybe that's something that could be done soon as the company that did the ko for that mold is making repaints and retools based on different characters. They're currently doing Strika and Impactor retools of it and plan on doing more.

Sunstreaker police type, meh. Cool but uninteresting.

Smokescreen, if that's meant to be the G2 version then why not just use Energon Starscream? Or any deluxe jet for that matter. I'd rather an Alternators Smokescreen than a G2 Decepticon Smokescreen from the Classics/Universe mold or you know, blue Bluestreak.

Deadlock/Decepticon Drift, meh again.

Beast Hunters Silverbolt, awesome. Give me BW and Universe colors and Tigerhawk and Razorclaw retools. Oh and Windrazor too.

Goshooter is kinda cool I guess. It's more than a "meh" anyway.

On BotCon Soundwave it's not the neck joint that was retooled, rather the head was designed to permanently "look up", thus offsetting the slanted joint problem that plagues the mold.

I think using the Decepticon Jet deco on his Autobot namesake is rather clever in a twisted sort of way. Makes good food for nonsensical bios :lol:

Personally if we're talking hypothetical repaints for the Universe Prowl/Smokescreen mold I'd love to see Flash or the Subaru Alternators Smokescreen.

I totally called Wheeljack as a potential Omnibot mold when it first came out. The other molds seem a little stretched though.

Go-Shuta looks okay. I'd love to see a new mold for Nightbeat/Go-Shuta/Minerva (with a retooled head and torso) (and yes, I know Nightbeat and Go-Shuta transformed in opposite directions, I don't care) (apparently I talk in brackets now)

None of them! That's how many I'd like to see done. I'd rather they left the characters alone instead of making a lazy attempt and re-hashing molds that have already been used to a dozen other characters before them. It cheapens the figures they are attempting to pay tribute to. I don't care if it's Million or Hasbro or whoever. Show some respect for the characters by either giving them their own new molds or don't even bother trying.
And yes, I'm quite aware that they used molds over again back in the original series but way back then there was this thing called moderation. Nowadays, they go absolutely ape-sh** cranking out repaint after repaint of any given mold and it's just sickening and insulting.
