Sorry guys, but I'm a little confused. Do we know if these are new molds? Or are these remolds/retools/repaints/whatever of the Sideswipe mold? I feel like I'm missing something that everybody else is seeing. Or are we just speculating until we get some official pics? Like I said...I'm confused, but very interested to learn more and see some pictures!
I hope they're new molds because I can't justify spending $80 for each of these no matter how cool they are if they're just repeats of Sideswipe.
For G1 and their reissues, a lot of characters were created using a limited amount of unique molds. The list goes a little like this:
Lamborghini Countach: Sideswipe, Red Alert, Tigertrack, Clamp Down, Deep Cover
Nissan Datsun/Fairlady Z: Prowl, Bluestreak, Smokescreen
Toyota 4WD Hi-Lux: Trailbreaker, Hoist
Onebox Cherry Vanette: Ironhide, Ratchet
Since Masterpiece strives for accuracy, we're 100% certain Prowl will be a new mold with Smokescreen and possibly Bluestreak as his retools, like in G1.
