Mind you, trying to emulate that paint scheme will be tough for the home customizers! Whew.
That said, I'm actually really disappointed we're not seeing a nice G2 or RID throwback like G2 Mirage or Skid-Z, if they're doing Prowl and/or Mirage in the set this year. (Maybe those might show up as TFCC subscription bots next year while the mold is available?)

But seriously, that flag looks outstanding.

You see, Blastcharge was a 6-wheeled vehicle, like Strika, but looked nothing like her. When Strika debuted in Beast Machines, fans feared the toy Strika would be a repaint of this:
I know, that actually would be something that Hasbro would nowadays do...
Thankfully, Strika got her own mold. And now, the opposite has happened; Blastcharge as a repaint of Strika. The irony!
And I just realised the mold choice wasn't as accidental as it may seem: BM Blastcharge has a cannon in his chest like Warpath.

Hilariously, Depthcharge and STARSCREAM now share a mold!
