    What figures/characters do you think we'll see in 2012?

    I really hope they continue the trend of 2011 and use characters in the later stages of G1 and beyond ('86 movie figs, Thunderwing/Sky Shadow, etc).

    Here are some easy ones:

    Hardhead (Warpath repaint with a new head, easy)
    Chromedome (Rodimus repaint, minus spoiler, with a new head)
    RID Scourge (nuff said)


    What else?

    People seemed to be talking like Trailbreaker(cutter) and (G1) Arcee are actually happening?

    Beyond that, the only thing i can think of that hasn't been mentioned already is the Scourge (Tracker...not the black truck) repaint.

    Here's my standard answer:

    Dinobots
    Trailbreaker w/ Hoist Remold
    Skids w/ Crosscut Remold
    Gears w/ Swerve Remold
    Brawn w/ Outback Remold
    Huffer w/ Pipes Remold
    Blitzwing
    Shockwave
    Motormaster
    Dead End remold of Jazz
    Breakdown remold of Sideswipe
    Wildrider remold of...dunno. Wheeljack/Tracks Maybe?

    The Trailbreaker thing is really just rumor at this point, Arcee was actually hinted at at Botcon. Something along the lines of "Generations Arcee? Well we can't announce this yet, but pay attention around Christmas..."

    I actually kind of doubt that they'll use the Kup mold for Gears. The bot modes aren't really all that similar.

    Arcee on account that they're running out of autobot cars and fast.

    Also, new Ironhide/Ratchet that turn into an Armored Truck/Ambulance.

    Possibly Huffer/Pipes as a Mercedes-Benz Actros/Renault Magnum fusion.

    I think so too, but that preview head in the intructions just looks so much like gears. I can't really think of anyone else it could be.

    At Botcon 2010, during the design panel it was mentioned that the 2 figures that the designers wanted to get to during the generations line were soundwave and rhinox. I'm guessing that these 2 will show up in the line at some point.

    Maybe they could remold Perceptor into a good classic style soundwave as some radicons have done.

    Honestly, I really don't think it looks that much like Gears. It's pretty generic, could just as easily be Crosshairs or Orion Pax. I think Gears would probably be a better a a mold-mate of Brawn if we ever get either.

    I'd be happy with whatever new characters they want to do, or existing figures they want to re-do, but I'm kinda hoping they revisit Ironhide and Ratchet. I transformed Ironhide back into vehicle mode the other night (first time since I got him that he's been in vehicle mode) thinking "oh, it's not so bad", but after transforming him... yeah, I am disappoint.

    I... don't think we're gonna get anything.

    Maybe some store exclusive redecos/remolds that we've already seen; like Warpath and Scourge for example. But I get the feeling big retail isn't interested in stocking three different Transformers lines between Movie Trilogy, Prime, and Generations and Genny seems like the easiest one to lop off to me, with there being no current or recent supporting media.

    Which isn't to say there couldn't be some exciting product reveals at Botcon with a Generations revival meant for 2013 but poking out onto shelves late in the year, similar to Prime showing up right now.

    But I just get the feeling we aren't going to be seeing any new mold Classics style figures next year.

    The only one I think is a must which would make me squeal like a little school girl would be a Generations SCOURGE from the RTS G2 Prime mold. It would just be too epic for words.

    i'd like to see the remaining triple changers get some love. trailbreaker too and the eventual hoist remold. i dont think we'll see much in the way of generations this year though.
    i think hasbro should put the line on hold for 2012 so they can focus on the prime line and the is possible movie trilogy line, hasbro can include some classics style figures in the trilogy line like they did with hftd and rts. in 2013 they should focus on prime and generations line since there wont be another film on the verge of release for them to be worrying about.
