While Springer was the hot new preorder of the day, Hasbro also revealed Twin Twist today, prematurely, on Instagram. But we got the images of the reveal below. We will update this post with the proper preorder links when we have them. There is no news or evidence that there will be a Top Spin to go with it.

Also, fans have been asking why we are not seeing the "BAF" Hammer pieces these sets come with and that is because it is not an actual "BAF". The hammer isn't an accessory you put together for a bot to hold, it's just pieces of cardboard you put together.

twin twist and topspin are great figures with a real heft to them, they are definitely worth checking out if you haven't yet

Any thoughts about what these figures are standing on? Is it a figure/set that has already come out or might this be alluding to something?

Curiously, what they're standing on is Earthrise Scorponok.

Pretty sure it is judt scorponoks tail folded up weird.

Also, if the hammer is just a piece of cardboard, they just saved me a lot of money. Looks like I can cancel and hold off on some of these now.

Maybe Wrecker "Diaclone" Top Spin will show up in the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line instead? Or as a Generations Selects release later on? I think it's more likely than not that he'll show up sooner or later in some other line or collection.

That… makes me a lot less excited for this Twin Twist. I don’t hate the deco and I am not against diaclone characters as generic soldiers in the Autobot army, but Not having both cuts the appeal for me.

I will probably pre order though because I am a sap

That just seems kind of odd to me. There have been 2 pairs of deluxes already, 3rd pair only seems logical, and 2 Voyagers ( one revealed today and one left).

If there are 2 deluxe pairs
2 Voyagers and then
A single deluxe....that would be very disappointing.

The Wreck N Rule line is an odd duck. It uses characters that were all part of a Wreckers team at some point but many of these releases get a deco referencing something else. Today's reveal is Bulkhead, who was a wrecker in the Prime cartoon. His deco, however, references movie Hound which does have a similar alt mode in camo deco in Age of Extinction, though not as bright.
Interestingly enough, the toy comes with an extra accessory, a small hammer, which Breakdown had in the Transformers Prime show.

Here are the preorder links:

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/transformers-tra ... formers-20?tag=seibertron07-20&
Pulse (in very limited quantities and only open to premium members): https://hasbropulse.com/products/transf ... e-bulkhead

What the heck are they doing?

I've said it in the past...repaints are the wimp's way out. The problem is that Hasbro has figured out that Transfans aren't the brightest bulbs on the Christmas tree and that they will snap up just about any repaint as long as there is a good backstory or something relating directly to G1 lore (*cough* *Seekers* *cough*). Is this line worth it? It it even really a "Wreckers" team? Eye of the beholder...but until we stop simply snapping up repaints, HasTak is going to continue to be LAZY and not really give us anything new or creative.

Does not having bombshell and Shrapnel make it less exciting to have kickback? Does it mean they won’t make the other two? The powerdashers were spread out and were not all in one line. It took nearly a decade to get all of metroplex’s companions. It’s not the end if only twin twist is released by himself. It was a good 6+ wait to get both in titans return.

Slightly off topic, but people keep saying this and I just don't get it. The only things they really have in common are being fat and green. It's like saying DotM Sentinel is like a live action RID Optimus because they're both tall, red, and turn into fire trucks.

It’s not the only thing they have in common. They have similar personalities. The prime version. Both yes are big and green but both are head strong, fierce and jump into battle and like the action, put that with how they look and they’re very similar. Intentional or not

That's disappointing. I expected a more compelling repaint of Bulkhead. At the same time, whew! Can totally skip this line almost entirely. I'll likely pre-order Twin Twist. Still on the fence with Springer.

Interesting. I've always seen Bulkhead as more of a "gentle giant" type character, but I'm admittedly much more familiar with him from Animated than from Prime. Thanks for the insight.

Man at least you still expected Bulkhead. Other fans out there were hoping for a redeco of the Bulkhead mold into a G1 Pyro. And well, Wolfmanjake already used my line about hope. It held true!!!!!!

Ha!, yes. I was kind of hoping for his Battle Tactics paint scheme.... silly me.

Anyway, we'll see if the Bulkhead mold gets another use for a different character later then. That Optimus Prime rumor may still hold some water.

I get that I personally prefer Animated Bulky over prime but Prime Bulkhead is a solder with a heart of hold. He cares for him team and humans but he’s also a wrecker too. That’s why he’s here and like I said there’s a lot of similarities with Bulkhead from prime and Hound in the movies. It’s mainly coincidental. The people behind the movies admitted he was pretty much just an original character creation and a G1 name slapped on like most the movie characters but with prime still at its peak when AoE was released it’s not hard to draw similarities. I would say hasbro has done that with having bulkhead sharing an alt molds similar to hound and having a Gatling gun. I think the idea that Legacy bulkhead being a planned movie hound though is rubbish. Maybe is an earthmode hound came out in the recent years ware might be some gravity to it but I don’t hasbro wants to put the name hound on a character before they do a G1 earth version first. The similarities with legacy and live action are more an homage

Wow this looks not great. I was really hoping for a TF:A paintjob/remind so I guess ill get the regular release version now. The hammer is cool but the paint job is messy looking and the colors on the head don't fit. A new headsculpt with the beard wouldve been awesome. Oh well

I think the mold is just fine, they just need to repaint him to be movie-accurate.

And give us a white version as G1 Drift!


Every single mode on him doesnt look right, probably my least favorite 'movie' figure I have. That and i would have liked him to be titans return for him to kind of have his cartoon human form.
Think I've been spoiled with most of his other non g1 figures have looked great even if most haven't been tripple changers. I even liked T30 IDW springer.

The leaks said “bulkhead repaint” and that’s exactly what it is. New characters like say the Fractyl figure is leaked as fractyl not “terrorsaur repaint” or leadfoot as leadfoot and not “mirage repaint” anyone who expected pyro or anything else that wasn’t a repaint of bulkhead can blame themselves for overhyping it and drawing conclusions that just weren’t there.

People werent asking for a perfect recreation of Pyro, they wanted that old hat temporary gap filler figure which is a redeco of G1 character based on a mold with a similar alt mode.

And, considering what we got here instead, it's not like that would have been a worse outcome/idea, and it would have been Wrecker related.

Anyways, out of all the exclusive Amazon lines we got so far, starting back in WFC, this is the worst, as a whole. The golden disk line was pretty fun. But I do find the fossilizers very very cool (not much else though and they are stuck in two packs).

BUT

It does make it so that no key character is an exclusive. While these toys don't interest me much, I much preffer the outcome of my buying less than me wanting these and there not being enough made (or them being restricted through exclusive status). That Earthrise Amazon exclusive line was rather egregious, with having MAIN characters not only be exclusive but also not being made in enough numbers, making us all doubt our Amazon preorders from here on out.

I s'pose this works for people wanting a more interesting colour scheme and paintjob for Bulkhead than plain greys and unbroken greens. I'm wondering if recolouring Bulkhead's big lower jaw all black (to make it resemble a big beard) would help with turning this into a custom Legacy AoE Hound!

But so far the only figure that has personally interested me was Leadfoot. Gotta love me some G2 callbacks.

Thanks for the heads up! Rural life is awesome...I see deer, fox, bald eagles, turkeys, bears, and wolves all the time, but the closest store with any kind of decent Transformers selection is 90 plus minutes away so I've been waiting for it to pop up on Amazon. It had said July 1st for release. Obviously that changed.

I've said it in the past...repaints are the wimp's way out. The problem is that Hasbro has figured out that Transfans aren't the brightest bulbs on the Christmas tree and that they will snap up just about any repaint as long as there is a good backstory or something relating directly to G1 lore (*cough* *Seekers* *cough*). Is this line worth it? It it even really a "Wreckers" team? Eye of the beholder...but until we stop simply snapping up repaints, HasTak is going to continue to be LAZY and not really give us anything new or creative.


I think you're looking at it from the wrong angle.

Yes, redecos are cheap to do, that's one reason they're usually reserved for store exclusives with new molds restricted to main lines, and exclusives are when they're listening more closely to the fans while working within the limits they imposed on themselves. It's not that we're not the brightest bulbs (not entirely anyway), but more that we're mostly opportunists who'll grab anything that may not appear again for a long time, playing into our FOMO emotions, but it's also a way of showing appreciation for digging that deep into the brand's history as a whole.
Whole new molds as a store exclusive? It's been done, but as WFC Netflix Soundwave has shown it's more of a hassle in the long run due to the exclusivity of the molds in question staying with that store for god knows how many years, leading to more fan boy complaint than usual. Yeah, it'll always be there*, but in Soundwave's case it may be more than Hasbro is willing to deal with.

So... Does this mean the whole line have been revealed now? Where's Topspin?!!! :BANG_HEAD: :BOOM:

I had planned to skip this mold all together, but now that they've tossed in Prime Breakdowns toon hammer, I may have to get him just to get that hammer.

Very well said. I'm committed to Leadfoot and Twin Twist. The others I preordered to get on the list, but I might not go through with it since Velocitron seems to be more of my interest with Black Convoy (perhaps the wimpiest way out of all repaints?) and Cosmos.
