Skybyte is my name
Enjoying my life on Earth
Why me, in G2?


Its CR/RiD's 10th anniversary. Hasbro clearly won't do anything to celebrate so Botcon are giving us a much desired character from the series.

Solid figure, kinda boring colour-wise, but I'm still looking forward to it. Though the one app I wish they didn't do was the " :G2BOT: Autobot " written across the windshield.

Yeah, G2 Breakdown was natural, being the first ever Botcon exclusive, but I don't really see the point of repainting other Classics molds into Protectobots that don't combine or have new heads. As regrettable as it is that G2 Protectobots and Stunticons weren't mass produced, my greatest regret from G2 is that Marvel comic continuity finally got axed just when Furman had given it so much potential, so I'd be more excited about a box of Vehicons repainted into random mint-and-white minions of the Cybertronian empire, even if they didn't have the resources to tackle specific characters like Jhiaxus or Mindset. Maybe that's just me though.

However, I do agree that with the right paint job, Classics Silverstreak could be a perfect Rapido, and hope that's more than just a rumor. I'd also love to see Cybertron Jetfire/Dreadrock repainted into Terradive, since he was the first realistic large bomber, but his Sky-Scorcher mold left him dinky compared to your average fighter jet alt-mode, so he's long overdue for some BIG toy respect.

As the Autobot equivalent to Breakdown of course. And Prowl was the most obvious to use out of the what mold's were available. Plus the individual members of the combiner teams are decent characters in their own right. Its very unlikely that Hasbro will ever give us another proper combiner but that doesn't mean we should never see those individuals return again.

Hurmph...as much as I knew his colors would be mostly black...this is definitely on the boring side of things. Like just all black? Ok. Guess the new head molds are gonna go to SkyByte and Clench then. Didn't think SB needed one, but let's hope it's a good one! There's usually one figure in a set that I don't like...so far Streetwise, you're in the lead!

looks cool, except for that I hate that universe Prowl mold. Its my least favorite mold of any TF toy in any TF universe effar.

Yeah, Breakdown has some precedent, what with his unreleased G2 figure being well known and his Action Master figure. Streetwise doesn't ring with that same familiarity. I'd rather see that mold turned into a G2 Jazz.

I'm still hoping for a G2 Ramjet and maybe a Hooligan

Looks too much like Silverstreak, could have been better.

With the exception of the Autobot on his windshield, I like him. the colors are bland but they work for that mold. I'm starting to like this set.

I wanted to love this toy so bad..
And the car mode is quite striking...

But the bot is soo bland.. That head couldn't be detailed? The gun?

The Digi-Bash of Prowl as Barricade is infinitely better......


Bland as bot mode is tho, I want it....... VIVA LA CLASSIC UNIVERSE!!

I'm guessing this means Clench and Skybyte get the head resculpts then. Unless it's gonna be figures outside the box set, not sure if they've done that before or not... ::checks the wiki:: :-)

A white toy recolored into a white toy? Thats something people who already own Prowl would gladly pay $40 for.

I would.

I've seen kitbashes on Ebay where people turned that mold into Jazz and I wanted it. If they gave him a new head and just gave him race car details (even the gaudy G2 ones) I'd be a happy camper. I want a deluxe Jazz.

Looks more like a G2 Barricade

Why couldn't they have done G2 Sideswipe?

I'm kinda Underwelmed on this one as well.

I think we will see that in Genreations. It's too easy not to do, and the only reason, IMHO, that Botcon would pass on it is that Hasbro plans on using it to fill out Wave 2.

No credible evidence, just a hunch on my part.
