God Neptune, aka the Seacons with all the color and personality sucked out of them.

It's a good color scheme for something, but not for them. Neon pink and eye-bleeding blue forever, thank you.

Man I love how they look. And you're right, even FT isn't going to get to these guys any time soon. I was also thinking about their Wreck-Gar but with how many movie bots FT has already done I expect him to be announced as soon as I purchase KFC's.

I have about $200 left from my bonus and the wife is encouraging me to get something for myself, I just can't decide what I want.

i've got the KFC junkyard junkion and I like him a lot, so if you want to try out their junkion mold without being worried about FT releasing the same character soon I'd recommend checking him out

Apparently Spinout (the TT-official Red Sunstreaker, not the lesser 3p toy) is going to explicitly be a Diaclone robot from another universe that was granted sentience by some goddamn supercomputer or another

As in he fought Waruders, feels weird without a pilot, etc.

No, he's a soldier who is super skilled but routinely loses his memory, losing connections to his past.

I like characterizing him as a TF version of Adrien Pimento.

Yeah, no. 7 is Bluestreak, who is a Diaclone and a different character than Streak (the Japanese name for Bluestreak) who is a Transformer and not blue at all. That's exactly how MP Bluestreak is colored.

I don't read Japanese, but the bio information on MP Bluestreak's instructions apparently strongly suggests he's a Diaclone and fights Waruders and the Autobots (er, Cybertrons) have no idea who he actually is. Check the tfwiki article I linked!

Wouldn't be surprised if Spinout's bio reflected this.

I did check the link and my point was that the Diaclone toy (which is named Fairlady Z not Bluestreak, all the Diaclone car robots were named after the model of car they were based on) does not have that color scheme. Fairlady has a mono-color baby blue color scheme whereas the MP is partially a deep blue and partially silver.

quote:

“Delta Magnus’ personal log”

In our haste to secure the outer space facility “Diadem”, which stores vast amounts of ancient Cybertron data, events took a turn for the worst. The facility had been decimated in a fierce battle between the Destrons and Quintessons, and a lot of valuable data had been lost. Fortunately, I was able to recover Cordon’s original memory, but he refused to install it. What we also discovered…was not what we expected. Evidence which completely changes the view of Seibertron’s history. One robot, “Spinout”, was discovered in a chamber in the depths of the Diadem, and had been in stasis for nearly 10 million years. In other words, an ancient robot with an earthen vehicle mode existed on this planet! What is going on? According to the Diadem memory banks “Anterior Zeta”, Spin-Out was originally a battle machine from an Earth in another dimension and was castaway on this ancient planet due to a space-time anomaly. Spin-Out was affiliated with the “Diaclone” force. Zeta had analyzed their spacecraft and seemed fascinated with the events of the Diaclone war against their enemy, the Waruder. Was Zeta crazy or was he hacked…anyway, Zeta ensured the Diaclone mission would continue and put into motion a secret protocol. He created a genetic command program that was spread throughout his repair network on the planet. Upon detecting any Waruder presence the program would automatically take over and ensure their destruction was top priority. It’s hard to believe there had been such an intervention with our race, yet we have already seen examples of this programming. There had already been the “Bluestreak Case”, where the Streak who encountered the Waruder army’s Probe Insecter completely changed. We need to take action! If the Waruder are such an evil menace, I would fight them anyway. Nonetheless, the decision and determination should be our own!

Just wanted to update this to say I was incorrect. I did some more digging and found this: http://heroicdecepticon.blogspot.co...1-diaclone.html

So there was both a blue Fairlady z with a silver chest and an entirely silver one (presumably the baby blue one in the catalog i posted is the silver one reflecting something blue or a color scheme they ended up scrapping.) Sorry Rainbowbeard, you were right.

It sounds more like Spin-Out’s bio is saying Bluestreak IS Streak, and that he changed due to whatever anti-Diaclone business was coded in Transformers based on Spin-Out.
