Tarn was an original character to IDW's first comic run, in the MTMTE era. He's the leader of the Decepticon Justice Division, who are a group of Decepticon fanatics whose job is to hunt down deserters and renegade Decepticons and execute them. Many of the DJD turn into implements of torture or execution. Tarn was basically a Megatron fanboy; his ship was the Peaceful Tyranny, he had some of original copies of Megatron's writings, and he even carries fusion cannons because of Megatron. He also had the power to kill someone with his voice.
There's so much more to the character, but that's the basic gist of it. Tarn isn't his real name either. The DJD all take code names based on the first cities the Deceptions took control if, and Tarn's true identity was a major secret for awhile, comlpete with red herrings. The Decepticon face is actually a mask.
Tarn is cool, in the way that only a villain who exemplifies how toxic and cruel the badguy's philosophy truly is.

I really like the look of that just-announced Scrapheap, and I love the idea of the Junkions being take-apartable and re-combinable. Likewise, the Core Dinobots don't do anything for me in terms of their aesthetics, but I like them being a combiner, and would consider getting them just for that novelty...
I am completely put off by Hasbro's new "big open hole in the box" packaging. I am, unfortunately, enough of a germaphobe that I'm really grossed out by the idea of other people's hands feelin' up that toy through the window, or of dust and debris falling in during the storage-and-shipping-and-handling stage. I know that this is irrational, but unfortunately that's kinda how stupid brain things like that work.
I dunno, maybe I'll be able to work on myself enough to be able to handle it by the time those things come out next year, but I'm not optimistic.

I mean, I don't have a problem with disinfecting them myself, it's more like... how to do so without damaging them? Alcohol can damage paint, Clorox wipes seem to be safe but it's hard to reach into nooks and crannies.

I saw this this morning and forgot to post it here. Looks like Hasbro is releasing yet another G1 mold toys for Starscream and Hot Rod, but painted to look like the movie cartoon look!
I pre-ordered both because I'm a sucker for G1 Transformers toys.https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-Retro-The-Transformers-The-Movie-G1-Starscream-Collectible-Action-Figure/567980442https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-Retro-The-Transformers-The-Movie-G1-Autobot-Hot-Rod-Collectible-Action-Figure/447997463
They also had this recolor of Astrotrain that reminded me of the Japan coloring. Apparently he was a Japanese cartoon Transformer.https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-Legacy-Velocitron-Speedia-500-Collection-Leader-Victory-Universe-Galaxy-Shuttle/869742903
