So much the song "Paint it Black" is progenitor of "Heavy ? Black Metal"Pretty sure these colors are meant to be G1 Motormaster colors and not a precursor to Shattered Glass Optimus Prime.
Namely, there's a much greater presence of gray and black here than there is purple, which was the dominate color of SG Optimus and yet is only a minor color here.

I must ignore the troll
All I was saying is that I don't see much of SG Optimus in this deco, and see more obvious cues of Motormaster in it.
Though, he is right in saying that "Seibertron" is pronounced like "Say-ber-tron".

You could never be a troll, Sabrblade. You're too nice of a guy, not to mention you're my appointed partner-in-crime Seriously though everyone, we have a "Report this post" button in the right-hand corner of every post for a reason. Use it.
And Motormaster doesn't look half bad. Shame he was canceled along with a number of other releases.

I've never handled an actual Thunderclash, but there's no way the launchers could've retained the gravity-feed gimmick and still been retooled to meet U.S. safety standards right? Assuming the trailer was going to be the same remold as MW Optimus, you'd think they'd have used a photo of it instead.
The gravity-fed mechanism is still present I believe, but ignored entirely. The Machine Wars version has only the launchers retooled, and only supplied with two long missiles (from what toy I don't know).

I... I thought we had a thing together...
I feel that, while this deco looks really cool on here, the neon yellow shouldn't really be here. But that's just me.

Curious, if he would've gotten to keep the missiles that King Atlas came with (his bombs) or been stuck with Whirl's redone long missiles. How did Hasbro get away with Atlas's bomber gimmick anyway, with such short missiles?

First up, we have the original unedited images of G1 Swoop that were used for the figure's boxart. As you can see there were a few changes that occurred between the prototype and production figure. The prototype featured gold chrome on the figure's lower jaw, feet, projectiles. Additionally the tip of the beak was less bulbous on the prototype.

Next we have a proposed black redeco of Energon Megatron.
Lastly, we have a set of proposed G1 Minibot redecos that would have been released by Takara Tomy. Warpath, Seaspray, Powerglide, Beachcomber, and Cosmos in all new color schemes some of which are little more real world accurate.

Thinking the exact same thing man

Add in Beachcomber's headlights making him look like his G2 incarnation, and Seaspray's the odd one out; the red torso makes him look like...something I've seen before, but I can't place.
