Because the coins and sleeves are made by people who dont know the toys. This isnt Takara, its a hasbro asia add on and we've seen worse. Remember Defensor, he was shown with the Hasbro chest.

Haha, yeah I remember that. I also just noticed that it says Combiner Wars on the coin itself, looks like they really don't know what they're doing :lol:

It's just sad that the Legends class Motorcycle mold has four characters (3 from Hasbro and 1 from TT), and none of them are a Decepticon to go with Megatronia. Sure it will be neat to see the color comparison of how these cycle-bots contrast with her, but I like my combiners to be uniform in faction (well except TFCC Wreckage which is an oddity to begin with...) . Really, Really wishing that TAV Override was named differently, and was a con'.

TR Rumble's package image is that of a recolored Rewind too. While the in package is well...Oopsie or just beating the deadlines.

Maybe this is a mass error set which will make it even more collectible? 8-}

Iguanus would have been a good redeco.

Victorion is an Autobot, so Megatronia must be one as well. Redecos changing factions? That's just silly 8-}

And I found another goof, though that may depend on how well you see colors: the lower left corner representing Flowspade is off.

I'm going to wager a more logical guess that Hasbro Asia intended to release Combiner Wars Victorion with a coin and changed their mind. They kept the existing coin, photoshopped the sleeve into Megatronia's colors and called it a day without changing symbols.

Aren't the CW boxsets general retail over there in China, Hong Kong, and SEA?

Yes, but this one was supposed to be something special being the Fan Built Combiner which they may have at one point thought made it worthy of the coin treatment, then changed their minds. None of the other UW coins say Combiner Wars on them so why else would this one? Coupled with the Autobot symbol this is what makes the most sense.

Iguanus would have been a good redeco.
But the bright side is that the most common deco for that mold is white, meaning Groove can be easily dyed into whatever color we wish with minimal paint - Flamewar probably being the best for this particular team, if only the head were a bit rounder.

I probably should've stocked up myself before throwing that out there.

Easy Solution, Wreck-Gar and a decepticon sticker from reprolabels. The blinding bright orange should fit right in color-wise. Just make up your new character name and you're set. Or even keep him as Wreck-Gar and pretend he was capture/enslaved and turned into their lackey.

FYI - tfwiki has Astrotrain being released 1/28 and Megatronia on 1/31. The have Baldigus on 3/25 as you mentioned.
