So..... if they could do a new head mold to Breakdown, why couldn't they give one to Pyro?

praetorian 2010-04-03 06:04 AM

I can't understand any appeal to these. Tie-dye never really worked for clothes. It doesn't work on Transformers either.

kupimus aka(clocker) 2010-04-03 09:19 AM

I actually love the colours on breakdown. Its a good mold and with these colors, i could just get this, megatron tank, hero optimus prime and the cyber jets and my g2 collection would be complete. the colors really just cover the g2 cars.

Jaynz 2010-04-16 02:54 AM

Brochure today confirms Streetwise and Sky-Byte, with no colors or molds mentioned for either. (G2 Streetwise was Black with red interior parts. Sky-Byte was blue and yellow...)

zigzagger 2010-04-16 03:25 AM

...And Clench too.

Incidentally, here's a link to the brochure:

Sky Byte?

Um, was there a Sky Byte in G2? I know about Breakdown, Streetwise, Pyro and Clench, but Sky Byte? I only remember the RiD guy...

Jaynz 2010-04-16 02:58 PM

The backstory is that he -is- the RiD guy, come through dimensions in search of a 'plot device' material.

Sunstreaker2 2010-04-17 01:20 AM

I MUST HAVE CLENCH

Especially if he's Universe Onslaught with a new head.

While that's probably likely, I would both be impressed and amused heavily if it would up being Bendy Armada Prime. Far more appropriate toy, and really holds well as a 'Classics/G2' figure.

But it's probably going to be Onslaught/Hardhead.

Onslaught's proportions are much closer to the original toy's.

Plus it wouldn't make sense for a Deluxe Decepticon leader to go up against a Voyager.

Only reason Earth Megatron being a Leader in Animated made sense was because he was bigger than Prime by a large margin. :P

borg72 2010-04-17 09:35 PM

yeah, onslaughthead is about the only thing that could work for clench, though even that's a stretch. unless they use something out of cybertron again. or go down the recoloured prime route again, black with neon green windows *weeps*

was just marvelling at the costs involved for setting up a stall, and the hoops one would have to jump through.

also, the fact hat the non-attendee package is almost as much as the attendee one. between average cost of flights, hotel, food, etc, you're looking at knocking up $1000, aren't you? jeez. can't wait for it to come back to northeast again. although to be honest, looking at past locations, my bets are on somewhere central/south for next year, somewhere between new orleans and texas.

Cliffjumper 2010-04-22 09:37 PM

That's... not stupidly bad, actually. Utterly pointless, but not terrible.

Jaynz 2010-04-23 02:03 AM

Other bits of news...

Clench was shown as a Tankor repaint... as a joke. It was soon replaced on the BotCon page with a drawing of Pyro with Clench. Clench is a redeco of Onslaught, as expected, with a new head.

Warcry 2010-04-23 02:19 PM

Does it annoy anyone else that they're advertising this as a G2 theme when so far they don't have a single G2-original character in the set? Streetwise and Breakdown are obviously G1, Pyro/Spark and Clench were both released first as G1 toys before being reissued as G2, and Sky-Byte is from RiD. So far there's not a single character in the lineup who actually originated in G2. Would it have killed them to throw in Leadfoot or Dirtbag or Motormouth or Hooligan?

Clay 2010-04-23 03:04 PM

Clench will be Onslaught. Or vice-versa.

zigzagger 2010-05-05 03:44 AM

And here's Clench, brought to you by TFW 2005.

Notabot 2010-05-13 03:54 AM

Ooo, looks like Punch/Counterpunch comes with ultra-G1-authentic crookedly applied rubsigns!
