Default Deluxe-class Repugnus coming

Apparently there's a listing for a Deluxe Repugnus in the PotP line. Looks to be an exclusive. No pics or much in the way of details yet.

Link - Seibertron.com

If it's true, I hope there's a more widespread release of Grotusque planned as well. Though TBH I would have preferred a bit more in the way of new molds, with some remolds for the Decepticon Headmaster Juniors/1988 headmasters. Repugnus and Squeezeplay are close enough that they could have worked as retools, same for Grotusque and Fangry, and I'm pretty certain you could get a decent Horri-bull remold out of PotP Slag/Slug or Sinnertwin.

He will go well with my LG Doublecross and TR Grotusque.

New information on this.

Amazon.ca has a listing for Repugnus. The various Amazon sites around the world are well known for prematurely listing upcoming items and this looks like another case of that.

But amazon.ca is a Canadian site...

But it is highly annoying for those outside of continental America who want it.

And the plot thickens - now it looks like there's going to be a Repugnus Vs Counterpunch 2-pack. If this is the same figure as the TFCC version, I am not going to be happy.

Counterpunch is very interesting. I doubt they'd reuse the Universe Sideswipe/Sunstreaker mould, it would be a tad more expensive to use.

It could always be a heavily remoulded figure as we've seen with Grotusque and the like.

They said Counterpunch, so it would most likely be the Breakdown mould from the last TFCC round. If that's the case, I wont be happy.
