Obsidian and Strika are loyal only to Cybertron itself. They ally with whoever's in power, whoever that is.


I like his vehicle mode, but I still have no idea why a propeller driven aircraft fits in with the Machine Wars aesthetic.

Obsidian isn't just a propeller driven aircraft. He's a propeller driven aircraft enthusiast! :P

Wasp was blue, then dark green. And didn't have any orange.

If only 3H hadn't tanked, we would still be getting AWESOME botcon figures, but no.....FunPub wants screw us over for crap.

But overall, it's Hasbro's fault for revoking 3H's rights to the TF line in the first place.

It looks decent. But honestly, I think that they should have worked with the first Movie Incinerator. Highbrow just doesn't shout "Obsidian" to me.

All 2007 Movie toyline molds are off limits to Fun Pub.

Plus, this was his body before he became a helicopter.

Really? Never knew that.

Technically speaking, the V-22 Osprey isn't a helicopter. It is, however, designed with the functionality of both a helicopter and a plane. So it's kinda a neener-neener.

(And what I love about the Osprey aircraft is that only United States Marines and a tee-wee bit of the Air Force uses them. As an aspiring Marine, this amuses me :P )

I don't particularly care for his alt mode either, but I'd rather he have hands in robot mode. :lol:

Ah, but he wasn't an Osprey in Beast Machines. He was a Cybertronian helicopter. Now, Megaplex better be good, or it's no BotCon for me.

Finding it really hard to get excited for this set. Hopefully the attendee only figures can save it for me.

I'll lay odds on the attendee figure being Thundercracker, also mass produced through cloning. Just so FunPub can really infuriate the Iacon package guys. :D

I really do like that mold, just not enough to pay botcon prices for it.
