That doesn't sound terrible. I'd be shocked if they didn't pull a Combiner Wars and release a more traditional Breakdown at a later point.
Conceptually a "multiverse combiner" is pretty neat, cherry picking the best/most interesting version of each character instead of being locked into one specific iteration. I wouldn't be opposed to a Bruticus made of something like Animated Swindle, SWAT truck Onslaught, Space Shuttle Blast Off, FoC Vortex and Movie Brawl -- a little celebration of the team in its entirety over just the first version that happened to pop up.
You gotta make that clear from the start, though. This method of implying Geewun until it's too late is gonna be a clusterfuck.
What are you going to call it, though? "Bumble-B"? "Bumblebeast"? Simply "Bumblebee" would be a nightmare for a trademark lawyer (what with being "descriptive" and whatnot).I'm still surprised they haven't made a Beast Wars version of Bumblebee using one of the Waspinator molds. I mean, it's so obvious.
This has just been debunked on TFW.
Apparently Wreckgar39 was given false info to screw around with the fans, and he just let everyone know he was punked.
I am actually glad it was a hoax. If they had made a Prime Breakdown Menasor limb that wasn’t CW-compatible, I would be sad. I have G1 Menasor, Cybertron Menasor, and the G2 CW set +Offroad, I’m not buying a 4th one unless the other figures are all Gobots.
True, but all the listings that I've seen reports of have had "PR" as a suffix (Meaning we're getting package refreshes of Core Optimus Prime, Soundwave and Leader Galvatron. So G2 Megatron is either a repaint or new mold).Just to make sure, the list of leaked listings includes a Voyager Class Soundwave that has the prefix "Pr", which has led some fans to speculate about a new Transformers: Prime Soundwave.
Actually, "PR" is industry shorthand for "packaging refresh", i.e. "unchanged product in modified or completely new packaging shipping again in a subsequent wave or under a different branding". So it's most likely a re-release of either Siege or Netflix Soundwave.
Another shorthand to look out for is "CF", which stands for "carried forward", which in turn means "unchanged product in unaltered packaging shipping again in a subsequent wave under then same branding".
