Default Leaked movie toys - spoilers

An image has leaked of what looks like a packaging mockup for a new Movie toy, called Infernocus, a combiner made up of five Infernicons - Glug, Gorge, Infernocon Thrash, Rupture and Skulk.

The toy(s) is in grey, which I would imagine is a pre-production copy... and not it's actual release colour.

But what will be more obvious to some is that it is mostly a reuse of the Beast Hunters Abominus combiner... with a new figure as the core of the combiner (replacing Hun-grrr).

The big SPOILER though is that the "packaging" notes that Infernocus is a guard for the character Quintessa, who is being represented as a figurine in this pack.
There were rumours that the concept of the Quintessons might be in this fifth movie, particularly when Optimus flew off to look for the "creators" at the end of the fourth movie... and the early trailers for this movie showed a second world near earth.

The packaging also notes that the toys have hidden glyphs that a decoder will reveal... which might be a gimmick with the other Movie toys.

Such a heavy retool suggests to me it's a non-screen character...

When I first saw the pics I had a moment where I thought we were seeing toys that could become the basis of CW-compatible animal combiners. Then I recognised the limbs for what they were.

Kinda like the names though for a group of evil Dinobots (or close enough).

Just noticed though Skulk doesn't have a beast mode. He's just robot and torso. That's a bit weak.

So many retools and repaints in this line.

Apparently they're even gonna include a retool of that Generations IDW Megatron from several years ago.

Wish/To-Buy List:
Generations: Topspin, Misfire, Slugslinger, Cosmos, Ramhorn, Pounce and Wingspan, Brainstorm (either TR or Legends)

Someone with some sense
The later it gets, the less sense I will make (usually anything beyond 19:30 Qld time).

This character model has already shown upon the Transformers Annual IDW comic from last month. In the comic they refer to him as Onxy Prime, the leader of the combiners from TCOP, ironically spouting the warning the hologram gave from the G1 Cosmic Rust cartoon episode.

Seems a bit much of a coincidence
