Toy News: Previews World reveals "Generations Selects" Smokescreen
Back in March, a "Siege" Deluxe Class Barricade was revealed, and many fans picked up on its design cues as resembling the G1 Autobot Smokescreen, leading to speculation that Smokescreen would be released as part of "Generations". Now thanks to Previews World, we have our first official look at "Generations" Smokescreen! The figure is a redeco of Barricade, which in itself was a redeco/retool of "Siege" Prowl. Here is the official description:
From Hasbro Toy Group. This special edition Generations Selects WFC-GS06 Smokescreen figure portrays the classic G1 character with a G1-accurate head sculpt. Figure converts to a Cybertronian alt mode in 14 steps, deco'd to reveal how Smokescreen would have looked on Cybertron. The deco incorporates Cybertronian numbers into his classic exterior. With this Smokescreen figure, fans can add to their Praxus-native collection. Smokescreen joins Barricade and Prowl (each sold separately, subject to availability) as the third Praxian character designed in his native Cybertronian form. The Smokescreen figure comes equipped with a W-45 Acid Pellet Blaster accessory and 2 W-50 Volt-Beam Cannon accessories that can mount on his shoulders or the hood of his vehicle mode.
Smokescreen has an MSRP of $19.99 and is due for release on October 30, 2019.
