Maybe I'll just wait for the black repaint. ;)

Never happen, but I can hope, right? He'd need a new name though.

You know what, all these MP Sunstreaker repaints would work really well as Scorpinok's Headmaster army! All we need now is a set of 3rd party transforming heads and we're all set!

Are red optics accurate indicators if the character was/is a'con? Dang Thrust has yellow optics! If that tweet is an indication Cordon was someone else before (a reformed "Barricade"? Cordon is synonymous with Barricade) :-?
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

Maybe he's Exhaust. :lol:

But yeah, he's probably supposed to be a G1 Barricade without actually having to figure out how.

This one:

In Japanese G1, he was part of the only Destron/Decepticon Micro Transformer team released (all teams released were Cybetrons/Autobots, even the US Decepticon ones): the Race Car Patrol Team, which we know as the Race Track Patrol:

They were associated with Metrotitan.

I wonder if the reference is just Takara's cheeky way of saying he used to be a Diaclone, now he's a Transformer.


Meanwhile, back at Cybertron Central HQ, the boys on the squad are all abustle over the arrival of some much needed back up.

I'd buy that too, the mold is just that good. Can you do one in Alternator Dead End colors just because?

More details on Cordon's identity.

Soundwave's Oblivion took a stab at trying to translate the hard-to-read sample image of Cordon's bio from before, and came up with this (image originally posted by TFW2005 user Sam):

Image

Notice that it does NOT say that he was a former Destron (Decepticon), only that he was convicted as a Cybertron (Autobot).

So he wasn't a Destron and something about his forgotten past made him good at cooking human food. Maybe the "Cordon Bleu" jokes weren't that far off.

I wonder if by chance he's Toaster? He's the only Autobot I can think of with a food-related alt mode.

As red optics no longer an accurate depiction of being a former Destron. It's more of an homage to Diaclone then.

So he was(?) an ex-con but not a 'con. :lol:
