WreckGar as a Voyager, hmm... Interesting. I figured he'd be a deluxe. Unless he shows up in the show again, which would be slightly annoying yet entertaining, in true Junkion fashion.

Atomic Lugnut? Roadbuster Magnus?
Yay, more unnecessary repaints.

Hasbro should save their reserves and make NEW figures the fans actually want, like Animated Omega Supreme. Oh well, maybe down the road.
The one that caught my attention was Samurai Prowl. Looking forward to the armored goodness. Also Leo Prime. I'm not a fan of Universe, but I'm actually looking forward to this one.
And WrekGar as a voyager seems a bit much. He'll probably be OP sized, since they're almost the same size in the show. I just don't like the character (too bad we couldn't get John Cleese again).

Could "Leo Prime" be that Japanese one, Lio Convoy? - he was reissued in the Robotmasters line.

I really hope it's that mold, I've been wanting him(well, his black repaint actually)

I don't remember hearing about a legends Rodimus before. I hope we get some pics of all this new stuff soon.

Umm....You mean Eric Idle.


I personally love Wreck-Gar as I've stated numerous times so this was awesome news for me! January it says, late Christmas indeed!
Atomic Lugnut? A repaint I suppose and not a bigger sized toy. I think I'll pass.

I just thought of something. With the name Motormaster not being available for trademark by Hasbro anymore (for whatever reasons) and they putting out Drag Strip in a couple months, could it be that this Overload is supposed to be the new Motormaster, like this here: http://autobotcity.deviantart.com/art/A ... t-11885801

'Cuz, y'know, I'd totally get this mold again if it was this they where trying to do... Small remold to wipe away the Autobot symbols and voilĂ ! :grin:

I think Leo Prime actually is the original Leo Convoy toy, rmember last year, BotCon 07? they had one on display during the tour, it could be that it was a test shot from Beast Wars but never decided to mass produce him, or it was a bit of a hint to what they would release later on, without telling us directly.

I really hope it's not that piece of blocky, shelf-warming cack again.

despite what overload is repainted as, i can assume it won't be the blue and white magnus repaint, it'll end up most likely just like the original armada overload, like what they did with universe unicron

Wait, wasn't Armada Overload an Ultra class figure?

Yes he was!
That means this is aether a whole new mold, or gasp a repaint of a different toy!
We can only say one thing for sure, it aint Armada Overload.
