Well known pompous pontificator
Studio Series is off limits due the licensing issues with the design. THAT SAID, I’m not sure the Core Deluxe Cheetor is subject to that since the first we saw of the design was in an Evergreen Titan Changer box.They have to be coming. Sincerly. Also, no TM2 cheetor modern figure exists yet but I sure wouldn't say no to Cataclysm. Maybe from studio series Cheetor?
Hasbro has been more apt to do that the past year or so. We saw it with Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus, the second Buzzworthy set with Goldbug, and now in the Buzzworthy Trooper pack.A lot of times they decide on the second head early on when designing a figure. (Galaxy Shuttle for example) They may have been looking for alternate heads, figured Scavanger was a the most different choice and threw that in. Now that we're getting a gen select figure of a different character, I guess they just felt like throwing it in as a bonus.
Hasbro seems more willing to do that with more “collector oriented” items than with more mainstream releases like in Legacy.
I’m glad they threw in the extra head for Antagony. I think it’s the best of both worlds in that, some of us can use the alt head to make her more distinct from Inferno, while toy accurate fans still get their recreation. And it’s not like Transmetal Scavenger (or Inferno, if they went to that angle) is very high on the list of remakes.
I still plan on getting VNR Optimus Prime. I really dig it as a “neo-Modern” take on Optimus Prime that isn’t bound to the film design aesthetic. And since I skipped Earthrise Leader in favor of the Walmart Battlepack, I have options with the trailer.
