Hey, gimme a break, I've been trying to re-write LiveJournal's old comments page from scratch in a fit of annoyance.

So apparently the RtS Prime redeco is SG Ultra Magnus, better known to most as Powered Convoy.

I'd assume Treadshot will be made from Warpath.

SG Tracks will probably be in Road Rages colour scheme if I had to guess. Would make a nice SG toy or a good classics stand in.

Metalhawk, Treadshot and Overlord have me excited. More so than the others.

Seeing how they executed Sounwave's bandanna will be pretty sweet, though.

Ultra Magnus? Oh damn. I thought looking at the drawing it could be Skybyte cosplaying as RiD Prime. A ridiculous and fantastic idea. But just a Magnus. Eh.

Huh. My mind went right to this Treadshot, especially given the involvement of Ultra Magnus in this year's story.

i hope not. ideally, it'd be energon megatron because he has the primary plane alt mode with a secondary tank piece. but i vaguely remember something about molds from aec not being used, or something like that, which sucks cause there only semi-decent mold for him otherwise is thunderwing/black shadow and that mold's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too small for him

Tidal Wave and C-Metroplex would each make a passable Overlord, but violates the "no AEC" doctrine.

I was thinking Universe Silverbolt might work, though I know many wouldn't care for it.



And in general, this is interesting news! Should be fun to see what other molds are used and such.

Guys, I really don't think a set that bumps the figure count up to six is going to suddenly give us an Ultra.

Especially not an Ultra they've already used.

I'll probably have to get this set. Or at least SG Magnus and Overlord (depending on what mold is used and how the deco looks). Don't really care about Treadshot; if they're using the deluxe Warpath mold, I would rather have had them just do SG Warpath. SG Tracks does sound fun, though. And Soundwave will be hard to resist, even if it's the crappy U. Ironhide mold. Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll have given him a new design from a different mold.

Oh, and the linked page won't load for me.
