I do feel it's worth noting that (assuming this is all accurate and true), getting a new 86 Arcee feels kind of...galling...after not only the last figure, but getting that figure two years in a row! It's not that I'm against another Arcee attempt or anything, but committing the resources to ANOTHER a mere year after a refresh of the same basic design is available? And for ARCEE no less? That's on top of the Bumblebee AND Prime versions out at the same time? Hell, Optimus Prime isn't even getting that many toys this year!
*panics at Beast Inferno being shortpacked*
Those TF6 bots are all the Bumblebee Cybertron sequence bots, so... Yeah, pretty much G1 reduxes.
Presumably, and hopefully, it's Cyclonus in toy colors. I've heard people like the toy, but the cartoon colors seem drab and wrong to me. I'd pick up a Selects version in dark blue.Also curious about Cyclonus Armada figure. The "Sweep" figure was a nice way to get a variant of Scourge out there, so I'm curious what they'll do to differentiate from the retail release.
I think that would be even MORE insulting than getting a new figure. It's not a great toy, and as a character, has no reason to be released for a third time in three years. Arcee is a prominent character, but to see as many toys in a year as Starscream or Optimus Prime? And with a toy vastly inferior to the recent Starscream and Optimus toys?I'm guessing '86 Arcee is going to be a redeco of the Earthrise figure. I can't imagine them putting out three new Arcee molds at the same time (Prime, '86, TF6)
To be fair, both I think would benefit from changes. It's just that I think said changes start to skew into "personal preferences" or "nitpicks of the originals" than any overt weaknesses on the toys themselves. Laser Prime could do with improved articulation and maybe deco. The Titans Return and Generations releases showed that you can do some interesting stuff with the deco.I can't imagine Laser Prime or Dragon Megs being better than the originals .
To be fair, there have been a LOT of seemingly "inevitable" Selects we still haven't seen or heard about. Like a ton of seekers, but also more simple things like a "Predacon Rhinox", or Slicer, or Detritus, or (as of now) one of the many toy repaints of Dinobot they could use the Grimlock head tooling on.a Dragon Megatron should mean an inevitable Selects Cryotek at some point right?
I'm not expecting to see anything like that until after all five of the Dinobots are eventually released. If folks knew for sure other versions of those characters were coming, then they would wait for those, and Hasbro doesn't want that happening at all.I was hoping to see a toy-colors Selects Slag, personally. Or even a G2 version.
