So, Vector Prime's shell is actually Metalhawk, and who is Micronus' shell supposed to be... Groundbreaker?

Swoop looks great. ;)^

Thanks.

Okay, so I've been tossing around an idea in my head based on the most recent leaks of the artwork and packaging.

First off the disclaimer, I know relying on packaging art is shaky at best, but hear me out.

I think Hasbro is using 2 methods on combiners this time around, teams and evolved/enhanced individuals.

For the teams the combined form will have a separate name like Volcanicus/Abominus. For the evolved individuals, the torso will keep their name in combined form.

What really make me this this is the art for Elita-1 and Inferno having Jazz or Dinobots as limbs. If it is an evolved voyager, then they get whatever limbs are coming out in that wave.

For the actual designed teams, they will show all their intended limbs. Take a look at the Abominus drawing with all 5 members. Rippersnapper and Hun-Gurr are coming out before the other 3 limbs, and the other 3 are indicated as available late 2018. It almost seems like they learned from their mistake with CW Superion using Dragstrip as a limb.

This would also mean that technically there are only 2 "teams" so far in the terrorcons and dinobots. (I'm treating Predaking as different since it will be a titan set.) Starscream, Elita-1 and Hotspot would all then be the evolved combiner torsos, without a designated team, and Jazz, Moonracer, Blackwing, etc. would all be independent bots who can be free agents as limbs and combine with whomever.

I actually think taking this track gives Hasbro an out if they want to cancel a wave like they did for TR. This would also give them an easy way to crank out Skywarp/Thundercracker repaints of Starscream without having to give them "teams".

Again, just speculation here, but it actually fits what we've seen pretty well. The real tell will be seeing the artwork on the instructions Grimlock and Starscream. If Grimlock shows the remaining dinobots as his team with the ones coming out later indicated on the packaging like on Abominus, and Starscream's packaging just gives him whatever wave 1 limbs, then I think I may be onto something.

Swoop's still looking fantastic, and Abominus' torso is looking downright incredible.

Elita's torso on the other hand... nnnnngh. That's a bit of a mess. I'll cross my fingers that she's better in hand, and I'm at least liking that detail in jet mode.

Moonracer looks much nicer than before.

Elita's torso reminds me of that of Movie Starscream.

I can see it too. There sure is a lot going on behind the head there.

Oh, and it's now pretty clear that the Onslaught shoulders on Inferno's art were a mistake. Which in retrospect should've been obvious; that just wouldn't have worked with the ladder assembly in vehicle mode.

On the bright side, it looks like with him we've got a reversal of the CW Legends repaints -- he comes with more accessories instead of less! He's still got the standard guns of that mold but he also of course has the new Combiner feet.

I don't think I've seen this commented on yet, but it seems that the leaked images are legit. Dreadwind's wings are mis-transformed...

good to see Skrapnel getting another crack at the whip in terms of release(or re-release) since he never turned up in the UK(well....not quite true...the repainted mold as Chop Shop was released in the UK).

Bummer, Inferno is just a repaint. They didn't even retool part of the truck to make it look more like the classic character. Elite-1...yikes those legs. At least all the other stuff looks good.

That mold in no way is good for him other than being a fire truck, and honestly, a retooled Hun-Gurr as IDW Strafe, or a retooled Grimlock as someone else would have been more applicable and fun, not a (let's see, Hot Spot, Onslaught, G2 Slaught, Pyra Magna) 5th Hasbro usage of that mold.

If you don't like retools don't buy em and let the others who don't mind such as my self get them.

There will always be retools and repaints for cost reasons and to make sure HasTak gets full millage out of the molds.

I know that, but I can still protest the idea of using a fairly well used mold again in a different line.

And I agree with this. If they were going to use this mold, this would have been more fun. Bring in a rescue bot character into generations (like Blurr in RiD) or even bring in the Shattered Glass Heatwave who formed Nexus Prime. Get a bit more creative

Exactly my thought too. I really like how Abominus looks, though the design really does remind me of the Silverbolt mold. But it's a beast and far different and cool looking, so that is perfectly ok.

Inferno... come on buddy, you can do better!

Look at the pic, they retooled the head to look more like Inferno.

Has Inferno's forearm been retooled to accommodate a Prime Master, or is he holding a combiner foot with the gun plugged into that? I think the later, but what do you all see?

I'm not so curfuffled over the re-release of this mold, and I like the looks of the new head sculpt for robot mode, but I do wish they had given the torso a new combiner head.

He's just holding the combiner foot/hand.

Can we all agree that Hungrr is a retooled Silverbolt? It seems so obvious.

ScottyP - you know what this means!!

Is this the first confirmation of Elita One? This feels like it should be bigger news.

It means that Abominus is going to have a fantastic, sturdy torso.

No, we saw Elita-1 in the big leaks a few months ago.

We all agreed from the very first leak/pic.
Even the beast mode is only silverbolt on fours.

No we all saw it in the leaks as well as the contents of the waves until wave 3. No surprise/confirmation here. Just the first pic of the real toy, but it's so bad quality that's it doesn't helps more than the leaks.
