"OPTIMUS will only be in the VOYAGER assortment for the TRANSFORMERS CLASSICS toyline. He will NOT have a trailer. His blasters transform into parts of his vehicle mode."

"For TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON there will be a CROSSWISE redeco. There won't be a recolor for MUDFLAP now, as they recolored VECTOR PRIME instead."
Looking for a complete Energon Sky Shadow (from Superion Maximus).
Offering: Binaltech Hound, Swindle, Ravage (Corvette), Skids.
Can buy in stores: Robot Heroes Tigatron/Inferno, Ricochet/Predaking.

Intersting tips about the blaster - we have to expect something like E Rodimus? or maybe something better? As for the trailer ... we will get the usual custom trailer by ... the no-prize contest is open, who will be the winner?

Chances are he will be NAMED "Smokescreen" even.

In the show crosswise was originally intended to be smokescreen, but he was later changed to crosswise.

SO no surprise it's a smokescreen homage.

Not bad. I don't particulaly like the mold, per se, but the smokescreen color scheme is always nice.

To be honest i kinda wish they did a jazz style recolor with crosswise.

But i must admit this recolor does look a pretty pretty goood.
