Coming to us on this Christmas Day from TFW’s Jtprime17 is a new rumor about one of the upcoming Collaborative items, namely what may be a GI Joe Thunder Machine that transforms into Soundwave!
“One last gift for the day.
Tra Gen Project Trooper 4.
From what I’ve seen, this is a Dreadnoks Soundwave that turns into the Thundermachine.
O-ring Zartan and Zarana, plus Ravage with chain included.
Merry Christmas, and happy holidays everyone.”
Take this as a rumor until we get official confirmation, but til then you can discuss what you think on the boards!
I'd kinda be fine with either of those, because G2 Wildrider means we'll be closer to getting a G2 Breakdown based on the Legacy mold, which is the only thing I want from these new Stunticons
Nah. There were plenty who thought Animated. But many were thinking it'd just be a variant on Legacy Arcee.
The only reason I'm pumping the breaks on X-Brawn is "WLDRDR" wasn't his name. It's certainly possible, but it'd be weird.
Leader for Jetfire and Voyager for Overload would be my guess, I'd personally prefer a smaller Overload so the fully combined mode can balance more easily.
I know it will have full leg transformation. But I wonder what sizes would Armada Jetfire be? What about Armada Overload? Will they combine with Armada OP?
I hope Armada Optimus actually transforms when combining into his Super mode, split legs into arms and all that. That way a Armada Jetfire would be possible for the combination which I most certainly will pick up and that also means a Victory Galaxy Shuttle repaint and retool that I also will most certainly get as well.
*runs away before the Lego fans catch up with me*
I'm honestly excited for commander ultra magnus and commander armada prime. Always loved the idea of bigger robots acting as bases and vehicles for the smaller dudes.
I made that statement a couple times in recent memory. One of which is the BWBB Ransack release. My logic being that even with that release of Ransack, we'll need yet another release in the future with a new mold featuring his original likeness. Though only later did I realize that people might actually want a Kickback retool Ransack instead of a new mold Ransack. It's pretty much spur of the moment for me and a bad habit I have hopefully kicked.
You do raise a good point there haha.
I tend to see G1 figures as having compromised articulation in the name of vehicle accuracy and most combiners have always had 1-2 compromised modes.
*raises hand* Guilty.
Could be the name. Like how Dragstrip rather than being caked G2 Dragstrip was Shadowstrip, G2 Wildrider could be like Robo Wildrider or something. Idk I hope the RiD01 X-Brawn.
yeah but what could the "ROBO" part mean if it IS the G2 figure
I don't know. Everyone and theirbrother was beyond sure that it was so likely that the upcoming Prowl just had to be G1.
I really don't think anybody should get their hopes up for X-Brawn. And I'd very much prefer it to be him! But it's just so much more likely to be a G2 Wildrider to me.
but dragstrip is G2 ShadowStrip with his listing being "Shado Stri" so yes, the "robo" listing is more G2 wildrider than a new xbrawn.
I wouldn’t say most likely as iirc the official listing is “ROBO WLD RDR” which could mean that it’s like a G2 Wildrider or something. I’m not getting my hopes up. But I still hope it’s X-Brawn!
I have Legacy Hot Shot. I'd love a Legacy Armada Cyclonus that's as great as Legacy Hot Shot.
I want G2 Wildrider but my hunch is that the G2 Stunticons will all be exclusives, released over years. Watch them shove one into Shattered Glass.
We don’t know, it could be based on the one from 2001, it could also be G2 Wildrider under a new name like Shadowstrip. But my money is X-Brawn/Wild Ride.
