It's the mercenary symbol, first time we've seen it used in the toys.

While Greasepit looks to be a straight-up repaint of Ironworks, I'm happy to see that Greasepit will still have it's dual Gas Pumps (right hand) and Gas Station Sign (left shoulder). :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Yeah, intellectually, I knew that he would be a straight up repaint of Ironworks, but I just thought, maybe through use of accessories they'd put a little more effort into making it look like an actual Gas Station, rather than just the Construction Station with gas pumps instead of a hook. Oh well... It's not terrible, Besides I was going to pretty much get it no matter what.

So....If they do Hothouse next, who thinks it would be an additional repaint of Ironworks, or instead a repaint of Airwave?
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Airwave repaint, 100%, because Selects so far has only done 1 figure per mold (although if that Centurion droid Brunt repaint is real, that rule no longer matters), and Airwave conspicuously features tank treads on his legs that are unnecessary for a design based off the Airport base, but would be necessary for the Fire Station, which seems to hint that Hot House was kept in mind when that mold was designed.

I like that they're doing Exhaust, but that symbol is wierd. And the lack of purple is disappointing.

Why is a lack of purple disappointing? He never had any purple. Do you mean blue, since the MP and the Diaclone toy both had blue glazing?

Myself, I'm more interested in Exhaust than I was in the Wheeljack use of the mold.

I find it funny that the first figure to use the merc logo isn't one of the names thrown out there or revealed by the card game already :lol: Just remains to be seen who the other mercs going to be. Can't have a faction of just one.

Technically that would be the faction-switching Doubledealer as well as the Quintessons and their minions.

Real world mercs would wear their mercs companies symbols, fictational mercs would wear their companies symbols. Its the equivalent of a la street gang wearing a generic Tshirt that says gang rather than their gangs colors. Poor exhaust here is displaying generic badge but I guess it could be the same as holding up a for rent sign, maybe the next generic merc symbol wearing car can be called Rental.

Weapon: Thermal Sword
So, at this point we have Hubcap, Exhaust, Greasepit, Dead Prime, Cyclonus, and Thrust, with possible hints at a new Soundwave, a rumored GI Joe crossover, hint at a Back to the Future crossover figure, and that Top Gun Maverick figure. Assuming Cyclonus might be part of that leaked 1986 Studio Series line due to the detail/lack of detail, and that we see more from that RED series, then we might get them all "revealed" for Fan First Friday, cause that'd be 6 lines with Studio Series, Earthrise, Crossovers, RED, and Prime Day, as well as officially revealing all of the leaks and rumors

The MP seems to have purple to me. Maybe it looks different in real life?

Without it the toy looks really plain. Although I have to admit, I want it more for the history behind it more than the toy itself.

As for the symbol, there've been a couple of toys with one-off faction symbols. Although an actual non-Dcepticon mercenary faction would be pretty cool if they were consistent with it.

I don't know, but the 'merc' symbol is a stylized Quintesson face, no?

No, the Quintesson face faction symbol you're talking about is Quint-specific, it's only been used on Slitherfang and the Quint Judge's packaging, so far (unless it's on the figures somewhere and we haven't seen). The Merc symbol has only been used in the toyline on Exhaust here, but is the same symbol used for the Mercs in the card game. Warden said during the TF presentation back at Toy Fair that Doubledealer and Snapdragon are also Mercs, but they don't seem to have the badge on them anywhere from what we've seen so far.

Also the Bug Bite listing called him a Mercenary, so he might have the symbol as well.

I’d be down for an Exhaust. Wish they put more effort into Greasepit, but hey, more Decepticon Modulators are always welcome in my collection.

I just want a nice reveal that wasn't already teased or leaked, as otherwise these reveal events aren't so much a 'reveal' as just Hasbro going "Okay, yeah, we're really doing those things. Which you already knew about anyway. So uh, here's a preorder for it...I guess?"

Both of those look pretty good. I feel pretty good about getting them, love that the retooling to Ironworks was the arms and shoulder sign instead of a head, nice little bit there!
