Does it actually come with the flag?

Wow. I actually really like it. Can't go wrong with that mold. Makes me more excited about the troop builder blastcharge bots I got on clearance years ago. They have a leader now. Heh.

Mind you, trying to emulate that paint scheme will be tough for the home customizers! Whew. :shock:

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.

Genius, pure genius with the history between BM Blastcharge and Strika.

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! :lol:

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.

:D. Blastcharge, 'ol buddy! Lookin' good in that mold! I always said the poor guy got far loo little love (and far too much hate!) for being a pretty nifty mold.

Looks good, but I wanted to read DEPTHCHARGE. Wouldn't that be something? :x

If anyone was actually in the class and doesn't want their flag thingy, let me know. I merely bought the assembled one and all it comes with is a missile.

I'd echo the same, but doubting anyone will want to part with their flag! :-?
