HEINRADDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :BOOM: :BOOM: :BOOM:

BEST. TF. EVER. :DANCE:

It would be pretty :SICK: SICK :SICK: if Takara did a Generations version: I'm thinking, let's go FULL ALARM CLOCK! :DANCE: And let's add a "project the time on the ceiling" feature, as pretty much every cheap toy alarm clock has that now. :-?

Well, even if it wasn't a functioning clock, I'd love to see another Tanooki 'Former! :lol: YES! :DANCE: (FunPub, MAKE IT HAPPEN! Ehhh... as long as you don't take some random car and paint it brown, and call THAT Heinrad. Future lame. :SICK: )

Not gonna lie, I'll be a bit annoyed if Heinlad is the last TF2.0 figure. Mainly because I'm building my own custom heinlad right now and it looks nothing like the one in that comic, and I want the one in the comic now T.T

Todd: Not sure, but I think it's SUPPOSED to be knuckles mcjerkface (RID Magnus)

Is... is this the first official multiversal encounter with the Aligned continuity? :shock:

If so, looks like that's Aligned Ironfist instead of a G1 version.

It might be Robots in Disguise Ultra Magnus (the 2001 guy, not the Prime RID guy).

Though, City Commander isn't in there. Fun Pub wouldn't put a third-party toy design in their comics.

Looks like it's just regular old Beast Wars Neo Heinrad with no changes, which Fun Pub wouldn't do, so I don't think Heinrad is a TFSS 2.0 figure (unless he gets a new body from a new toy design).

EDIT: Took me a sec to realize that that isn't the original BWNeo Heinrad mold, so... who knows.

Yeah, there are definitely two Ultra Mammoths in there. Who knows what universe the other one hails from (or either of them, since they both could also not be the same guy as the Classics/BWSG character). ;)

Ya'll are gonna Hate me, but I bet if someone painted a clock on a generations Wreck Gar and gave him a new head, you'd have the waist up proportions of a transTech Heinlad. And I bet we can count on FunPub to blame his futuresight abilities on television signal radiation and the degredation from it broadcasting across Space and Time...

F*ck me, you're right! :BANG_HEAD: I can see the Wreck-gar body now! :lol: Weeeeeeell, not too bad, right? :roll: As long as they find a way to put a clock on his chest, I'd be down for a Heinrad as part of the TFSS2.0! In fact, I'd buy in just for Heinrad/Heinlad! :DANCE:

But I have doubts about whether or not they could change the chest, and without the clock, it would feel cheap and lame. But the Generations Wreckgar mold is one of my favorite new ones, so I wouldn't mind that alt mode at all! :APPLAUSE:

Barricade is such a badass. :x

Wrecker's upper body is of a different design with different molding details than what we can see of that Heinrad design:




If Fun Pub wanted to use that mold, chances are they would have drawn Heinrad's body exactly as that mold. ;)

That Heinrad design actually resembles Generations Sandstorm with those big fans/wheels on his back. His more box shaped head even resembles Sandstorm's.

Sandstorm's got too many more details.

I like Heinrad. I also think that he has the oddest/coolest name in transformerdom. There isn't another like it that's for sure.

Make a figure now please.

This is all pretty subjective. I still think the Wreckgar mold is pretty close to what we see. Sandstorm? A) He's a Voyager (and FunPub mentioned they're not doing that), and B) Not really similar at all (wheels are oriented differently in shoulders).
The Heinrad head looks pretty Wreckgar to me (or Junkbot).

Sabr, do you have a reference for claiming they would have drawn him MORE like Wreckgar? :-)

I never said it was the Sandstorm design. I simply meant that they share some similarities. I don't have any expectations on Fun Pub making him. However, if they did plan on it in the future, they wouldn't necessarily design his comic appearance based on the mold they plan on keeping a secret for a future reveal.

Wouldn't have to be through the TFSS. It could be Botcon. Besides, I really don't think we'll see him soon if ever.

Why do all characters have to resemble a toy according to you guys?! Can't FunPub introduce characters without any intention of making toys out of the guy? :???:

*ahem* Nice to see Barricade acting like a cop, even if he is a slightly messed up one. Love the "You have the right to scream for mercy" quote.

RiD Mags is the only one (whose hand I can see) who doesn't have a Matrix.

Heh heh heh heh heh. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Fiction/cartoons/movies = vehicle for selling toys :roll:

As someone who buys toys of said fiction, it's hardly fair to ask why we'd expect Heinrad to get a new toy. :evil: Or maybe some of us just want a new Heinrad toy so much that we neglect little details such as, "not all characters in the fiction get a toy". :lol:

How 'bout the simple fact that they would have drawn him to unquestionably resemble an obvious and existing toy design if they wanted to promote a new Heinrad toy?

It's like JelZe said, not every character Fun Pub makes or uses has to be made from a toy design or made into a toy. TransTech Rhinox here, for example, has a design that doesn't use the look of any existing toy mold (though it does take some visual cues from the Cybertron Landmine design, but with plenty of creative liberties to not fully be that design). Nor is it based off a canceled Transtech toy design since there was no Rhinox in the old Transtech toyline plans.

To cite another example, "Dawn of Future's Past" created a pre-Earth design for Terrorsaur that didn't use the design of any existing toy mold design from that time.



Creating new designs for characters that aren't based on toy mold designs is just a common practice for Fun Pub, and IDW practically thrived on non-toy designs for years (until Hasbro decided to turn some of them into toys as of this year). ;)
