If you're collecting Micromasters like Pokemon and strive to build the largest base for them possible then you're going to want this set! Thanks to Seibertronians LinaNui and Nuclearxpotato we're getting our first look at the fifth and final Galactic Odyssey Collection entry Botropolis Rescue Mission at Amazon for $59.99. Release is planned for February 15, 2021, but as with all of the GO line that's likely to change. Turns out the rumors were true and we are indeed getting a white version of Ironworks (with no name change) along side a repainted Airwave now named Overair that changes things up with with two shades of dark gray plastic and added gold paint details. The colors of both were intentionally designed to complement Sky Lynx to really expand your launch base.

Along with the modulators we're also getting more Micromasters based on the Astro Squad. Individual names aren't given and the first is a simple repaint of the previously released space shuttle which replaces much of the shuttle's black outline with red. Names could be the same as the previous release as well like with Ironworks. The more interesting set is based on the team's missile truck members Missile Master and Moonrock (no telling what the final names will be), repaints of the Battle Squad figures Direct-Hit and Power Punch with the canon replaced by a missile launcher unique to this set. If you're after all of the unique Micromasters you will need this set to complete two-thirds of the Astro Squad.

A single photo shows a white version of Doubledealer's missile similar to the original Rocket Base that came with Countdown. None of the descriptions mention the missile so it remains a mystery if the missile will actually be included in this set or if it was borrowed from a possible Doubledealer redeco.

Amazon's description is as follows: As the Autobots and Decepticons speed through space during the events of Earthrise, special side missions take some of their members off course. Their duties lead them to unfamiliar planets where they encounter epic adventures and unknown dangers. Now fans can come along for the journey and explore the Transformers universe through the Galactic Odyssey Collection. Sky Lynx is in trouble. Overair, Ironworks, and members of the Astro Squad are tasked with the mission to find and rescue him. They encounter a roving comet called Botropolis,. They set up base on the traveling city and use it to search the universe for signs of Sky Lynx. Set up base for the Sky Lynx rescue mission with this Botropolis Rescue pack! Fans can convert Overair and Ironworks into their Modular Battle Station modes and connect them together to form a large base of operations. Astro Squad figures are to scale with the modular Battle Stations and are able to ride the tracks. Overair, Ironworks and the Astro Squad are redeco'd to match the color scheme of WFC-E24 Sky Lynx (sold separately, subject to availability). Once rescued, he can be attached to form an even larger Modular Battle Station! This pack is the fifth and final of 5 in the Galactic Odyssey Collection, available exclusively on Amazon. Collect all 5 to discover all 5 planets and top secret side missions! (Each sold separately. Subject to availability).

So what do you think about the final Galactic Odyssey set? Is the inclusion of more Modulators, Sky Lynx compatibility and two (four?) new Micromasters enough to get you to pre-order? Let us know in the Energon Pub forums!

I'm trying to figure out how they got the shuttle to stick to the missile. I got Doubledealer and the Astro Squad. The shuttle has a 5mm post near the front like landing gear and the missile has a 5mm port, but in the pic, you can see the missile's port.

I was trying to figure out if they based their colors on anything specific or if it was really just them trying to match with Sky Lynx (which the colors don't seem quite right for that). I've got two theories:

Japan's Landshaker and Sky Hyper vehicles:

Or a much bigger long shot, Europe's Rescue Force (specifically jet and buggy):

The Micromaster vehicles seem more likely, but this is a rescue theme so I won't entirely rule out Rescue Force. Though that depends on the current design team knowing any of these exist and I'm not so sure about that.

Supposedly it's an homage to Zone Base or at least part of it, https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Zone_Base , which was basically Countdown, but with more Micromasters as well as all 4 Micromaster Stations put together. (Thanks Sabre for the reminder on Zone) Too bad they couldn't have taken the Ironworks repaint and renamed it Glasspit . They could have included the Gas Station pieces (as an option) as well as the Hook unique to Ironworks to complete the illusion.

This is 100% an update to the G1 Rocket Base set that came with Micromaster Countdown. Just add the new Micromaster Countdown from Siege Omega Supreme to complete! On top of that, we get four extra Micromasters, repaints of the Earthrise Astro Squad and the Siege/Earthrise Battle Squad.

Looks really nice, just wish amazons outside of .com actually stocked them.

Ooh, that's quite nice, don't think I can/should preorder that right away with both my birthday and Christmas coming up but I definitely am interested in getting my hands on this set. I am curious what this means for the rumored Glyph and Tap-Out though, as every other Pixelmaster rumor for the GO sets has now been true...maybe Glyph and Tap-Out will be what E28 turns out to be, or something?

C'mon Hasbro, we've been used to repaints form the very beginning, making them different characters is what keeps us coming back ;)
I mean, if you (or anyone else for that matter) need alternate name suggestions that are suitably space-themed:
-Moonradar (Countdown's name in Japan)
-Comettor (Armada Jetfire's Mini-Con)
-Sky Blast or Payload (2/3 of the Armada Requiem Blaster)
-"Astroworks" (what a lot of individuals were calling this repaint when he was just a rumor)
Or if you don't want it to be space-themed, you could just call him Glasspit anyway like you mentioned in your more recent post.

EDIT: I also saw some TFW users throwing around Launchpad and Spaceport as options.

That "GO" set would be perfect for my Skylinx and Omega Supreme team!
Whennever if I'll be able to afford it when it will come out will be another story.

Both shuttle dudes have 5mm pegs that can flip out in shuttle mode, then its a matter of finding the right hole on DD's missile. There's only like 6.

So glad they are using Dd's missile, but I did it first [-(

Lmao, now I feel kinda dumb. Literally never noticed the back half had a post even though literally all Micromasters do :BANG_HEAD:

See, what I need now is like 8 of Airwave/Overair's gun barrels, attached in sets of 4 and strapped to each side. Maybe someone can make some resin copies...

I was excited for this set to be something about the Go-Bots from, you know, Botropolis. I thought Optimus Primal as Beast-Bot at the very least.

Oh, well. Saves me some money.

Heh, we got a Micromaster weapon rocket launcher, with a rocket.

I'm definitely planning to pick up this set of Modulators and Micromasters. Kinda wish that it was just the Modulators, but I'm fine with the additional Micromasters for the Citybots.

Also, I have a bit of a strange question for those that own Scorponok. How deep is his city mode from the ramp to the back?

Going to have to tinker with Airwave and Ironworks this weekend... I wonder if we could build a convincing crawler/launch vehicle for the Rocket (booster) and Space Shuttle?

I wish Overair was a little more distinct from Airwave, rather than just being blue, grey, and orange again. I'll still probably get this if I ever see it available.

This is finally a set that I have some stronger interest in, it looks really cool! I love the space theme here, the colors are cool, I like that they retooled the ground based micromaster team to include that little rocket in place of the gun, it looks like a great set. I'm glad i cancelled Hot House now, I only really want 1 of that mold, and don't even really want a 2nd, but this looks cool.

I like it. Here's hoping it actually comes with Doubledealers missile and that is not a fluke for the pictures here.

Only bummer is, again, we have a set that doesn't really make any sense compared to the planet it's on. I think they should have thought that through more

I do still need that space shuttle team though...

Why, why did they make those sections blue on all 3 versions of the Airwave mold? It's not the same blue, but they do all have blue in almost all the same spots. Good thing they aren't going to be close to each other on the shelf.

The clones set makes sense if you factor in the previously released Decepticon clones. Since their Beast Planet bio talks about beast bots vs non beast bots. of course they don's include pounce and wingspan in their read-up, but it makes sense in a round-about sorta way.

But I would like more than a roundabout answer. "Beast planet" = autobot clones because their archenemies are beastformers is just not as straightforward as I'd like it to be.

The micromasters and Paradron set are the only ones where I feel the theme and the bots included actually fit appropriately.
