I posted this a bit earlier in the 'General' forum. I guess I chose the wrong place to get credit.

G2 - Cool and awful in the same time :lol:

Although I don't see how Sky-byte (Generation- and mold-wise) fit there, another homage would have been cooler.

I was very excited initially about a G2 set, but now I feel a little frustrated. There's only 1 figure in that set of 5 that is actually a G2 homage. Clench and Pyro/Spark are technically from G1 that ended up being carried over to G2 the following year. Both were also European exclusives which mean little to a large percentage of U.S. fans (who BotCon is primarily attended by). "Streetstar" is from the tail end of Japan's G1 series and was never in G2 packaging. Sky-Byte came about 5 (Car Robots) to 6 (RID) years after the end of G2. Gnaw shouldn't even be part of this year's exclusives. Hopefully the other convention exclusives will fit in more with this theme.

I hope the comic makes sense of all of this somehow. I get that it's called G2 Redux but this is taking the term "redux" quite literally.

I was really hoping for some Cyberjet homages, a black Sideswipe, purple Ramjet, blue or teal Grimlock and some of the other obvious repaints. Perhaps they'll do them as Club exclusives later on to tie into this set. One can only hope!

"Negative nancyness" aside, I do like Pyro/Spark and Clench (though I wish Pyro had gotten Prime's head), the artwork looks incredible and I love Breakdown. I'm looking forward to seeing what else they come out with.

After seeing those pictures I'm left feeling like " that's it? "

It almost feels like going to one of those fancy resturants and getting a $200 dinner and when it comes out its this little round thing sitting in the middle of the plate :-?

And Sky-Byte seems like he came to the wrong party.

Well, basically, Streetstar IS Streetwise, I have put that out there, so he is an homage to the G2 toy, just like Breakdown. Spark and Clench, like many other G1 toys, were released as part of G2 so I definitely consider them G2. And Sk-Byte again is our wildcard.

As far as the rest of the offerings, they all fit the overall theme we are setting up...

I adjusted the news credit to include both of you! Thanks for helping out. I literally got the tweet, didn't see a top-level thread in Toys, and got it posted. Sorry for any mixup!

So...Sky-byte is a part of this year's box set, is he? Where does that leave Sharkticon? One of the bagged figures, like how Elita-1 was last year? I'd prefer it that way, actually. It just leaves me wondering who the other figure in that set's going to be, if it works out that way. I was alright with the Razorclaw figure, but I haven't seen what else is coming besides Sharkticon and what's apparently in the box this year.

Box art looks pretty cool. But like what Chaoslock said, where in the world is a Robots in Disguise character going to fit into this set, set in the Generation 2 universe? Unless it has something to do with Dimension Hopping, which would most likely make sense with him being in the set.

Sky Byte is the only one that does not make me :SICK:

Hey, no sweat! If you look at each of our three posts, they are only minutes apart....just in different corners of the forum! Just further proof that Seibertronians are ever watchful.

I'm not really impressed with the figures, but the neon colors are taking me right back to the totally awesome 90's. Radical!
