    Hey guys,

    I was just thinking what if Hasbro instead of giving us an original mold of HA Topspin they just do a repaint of HA Roadbuster or Leadfoot,now I wouldn't mind so much if they used RB but I sure as he** would hate if they did him using leadfoots,to me leadfoot looks the least like topspin with that fat and stubby form.Not to mention he is unweaponized,so I hope like he** Hasbro doesn't decide to just do that,as I sure as crap will not buy it if they use leadfoot,I might for roadbuster.

    So I wanna see what yall think.Discuss away guys.

    If it is a repaint, it definately won't be Leadfoot. He looks nothing like TopSpin, and would need some serious remolding to look 'good'.

    I'm starting to think that we may not see him. I was expecting them to milk another sub-line ala Allspark Power and NEST. That doesn't look like thats gonna happen now.

    As much as I want to see him, I'm starting to think the HA toys were only given to the ones with Big roles. And that mean Roadbuster and Leadfoot since they were talking in the movie.

    Either it will be a new mold, or there won't be one. I highly doubt they would repaint one of the other wreckers as Topspin.

    Hasbro wouldn't do that.

    If he's a repaint, I really don't think they'd use Leadfoot. Not only does Roadbuster have a much greater resemblance to Topspin in robot mode, they already made a non-weaponized Topspin (Cyberverse) and a non-weaponized HA Wrecker.

    Well to point out again,1.the HA has probably more repaints than some of the other lines like voyagers,and leaders so why would it matter to Hasbro if they just repainted Roadbuster and rename him Topspin I ask?,and 2.Surely they are not just gonna leave us fans hanging and not give us Topspin when they have done him for Legends and Deluxe class,to me that is just wrong if they do that.

    Also if they don't release HA Topspin how many thousands of fans will yell nerd rage if they can't have the complete set?.I sure will be,since I already have all 3 Legends,2/3rds of the deluxes (waiting for the Target 2pack one to come out) and 2/3rds of the HA line.So it seems only fair that us fans get a chance to own all 3 sets.

    I say we would be lucky if we get HA TopSpin at all. If we do, it'll either be a new mold or a repaint of Roadbuster.

    This is my thinking too.

    They could've just done the same thing with the Deluxes or Cyberverse Legion class toys, but they didn't. All three are got their own unique molds in each class, and both Human Alliance molds are unique. Why would Human Alliance be any different? The only toys that have even been redecoed (not counting HA Basics, of course) are Bumblebee (Stealth redeco), Sideswipe (black and silver/neon green redecoes...still Sideswipe) and Skids (the only one that fudges anything since the DotM Deluxe of Skids and Mudflap were both different Chevy cars than their RotF alt modes...but Skids didn't even make it into the film besides the cars not being edited out of a couple shots, so I don't think that's a big deal). Barricade, Mudflap/Chromia, and Jazz are still without redecoes, as is Roadbuster and Leadfoot. The HA line has been mostly redeco-free.

    I think the better question, beyond if it gets made, is would a Human Alliance Leadfoot come weaponized like the Deluxe, or plain like the Cyberverse toy.

    The main reason I think this wouldn't happen is that we haven't seen HA Mudflap's ROTF toy repainted in black to pass off as his entirely different DOTM car mode.

    Even though he didn't make it into the film, I'm sure they would LOVE a chance to reuse that mold, especially since I assume they didn't produce enough of the ROTF version to maximize the investments put into it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Roadbuster and Leadfoot variant colors, like they've done with half of the others so far. Or maybe a new head on one for an "off-screen" Wrecker.
