Definitely wouldn't display him with the ...porn-face.....though.

I wonder if he's on the list of 40 Generations figures for next year.

Looks really nice.

Didn't they say they'd never do a purple Autobot?

On wiigi or some such. There have been plenty before, so I don't see that as an actual reason to stop them. It's not like they couldn't make him maroon, blue, black, or gray instead if they really wanted to.

He looks pretty cool, but I've never really wanted an Impactor figure, so I'll pass.

Looks pretty great. I'm half-hoping Hasbro does an Impactor as a Warpath remold as one of the 40 Generations figures, though... but I know that's a heck of a longshot.

well I don't see why they couldn't do a Warpath remold ..since Igear obviously can

Thing is, the number of parts replaced on a typical Hasbro remold is much less than are replaced on this. This is almost more accurately a re-shell, not just a part swap.

They wouldn't do one to the extent that iGear has. With this amount of remolding, Hasbro would spend as much as making a brand new toy.

Cannot wait to get this. I've wanted an Impactor figure for such a long time. I started saving up the moment igear announced they were making one.

Yeah, this looks more like just sharing a transformation; doesn't really look anything like Warpath beyond the tread placements. And even then its how they were placed in LSOTW, so it's not like they just randomly chose Warpath because he's a tank.

This guy looks sweet! I'll keep an eye on pricing here to decide if it is a must buy or not.

Didn't exactly stop them from making Junkheap...
