    Anyone know if Hasbro going to release any new mold figures? I know they already going to put out Scourge, Sergeant Kup, Wheeljack and G2 Prime.

    No new molds other than what you mention. Of course, Wheeljack isn't one either.

    The Frenzy is a RTS, as are the Legends.

    Dont count on it IIRC the DOTM toyline starts in May and that will sadly take up a lot of resources from hasbro for tfs because the movie line will sell the best.

    His wave hasn't shown up yet. I'm sure it will be any day, however.

    Supposedly he is out. A couple of people here have stated they found him.

    As someone else has repeatedly been saying, apparently Generations is set to run alongside the Movie line. Whether this is true or not I'm not sure, but I'm happy believing it anyhow.

    I doubt movie presence to be what is was in the first movie tbh, RoTF had less presence imo.

    There could be new molds in the factories right now for all we know. With KOToys no longer showing pictures of any official hasbro products, we've lost our main source of early leaks for non-movie stuff.

    Just because we aren't seeing anything doesn't mean there isn't anything out there.

    We don't know exactly yes or no, we'll see if Hasbro has anything to show at Toyfair.

    At Botcon Hasbro people said something about it continuing... though I'm not sure if that should be taken as "alongside movie stuff with zero interruption" -or- if it's more of Hasbro just acknowledging Classics/Universe/Generations won't be going away permanently and there will be stuff in the pipeline even if there's a hiatus/break from it being on toyshelves.

    And whichever way they meant it last year, plans could change by the time DOTM toys hit toy shelves.

    Right. It could be as little as some endcap or store exclusive.

    The new molds we know about that have yet to be released are:

    • RTS Perceptor
    • RTS Wreck-gar
    • RTS G2 Optimus Prime
    • Generations Kup
    • Generations Scourge
    The instruction sheets have shown retools with new heads for the following figures:

    • HFTD Tomahawk
    • HFTD Terradive
    • Generations Kup
    • Generations Scourge
    • Generations Thunderwing
    In addition, a repaint of Perceptor as Reflector has been mentioned at conventions, but not officially announced. Takara also has a retool of Wreck-gar with a new head; presumably Hasbro will release this as well. Plus, we can probably expect a repaint of RTS Jazz and G2 Optimus Prime at some point. The following deluxe figures also have yet to be repainted:

    • HFTD Ironhide
    • HFTD Battle Blades Bumblebee
    • HFTD Sidearm Sideswipe
    • Generations WFC Optimus Prime
    • Generations WFC Megatron
    • Generations WFC Soundwave
    I don't know about Megatron, but WFC Soundwave and WFC Optimus Prime have easy repaints.

    That's a lot of deluxes to release before the DOTM toys show up in June. In fact, it may be too many if Hasbro sticks to previous levels of releases. Most waves have only 2 new figures, with the occasional wave bringing 4 new figures.

    Here's a sample breakdown, based mostly on guesswork:

    RTS December 2010: Jazz, Tracks, Mindset, Fallback
    RTS January 2011: Wreck-gar, Perceptor, Bumblebee, G2 Optimus Prime
    RTS February 2011: Tomahawk retool, Terradive retool
    RTS March 2011: HFTD Ironhide repaint, HFTD Sidearm Sideswipe repaint
    RTS April 2011: Jazz repaint, Reflector
    RTS May 2011: Wreck-gar retool, G2 Optimus Prime repaint

    Gen December 2010: Thunderwing, Skullgrin, WFC Cliffjumper
    Gen January 2011: Kup, Scourge
    Gen February 2011: Wheeljack, Thundercracker
    Gen March 2011: Thunderwing retool, Kup retool
    Gen April 2011: Scourge retool, WFC Optimus Prime repaint
    Gen May 2011: WFC Soundwave repaint, ???

    Typically, however, the month before a new movie toyline comes out doesn't have any new releases. This gives the last non-movie stuff time to sell before the movie toys come out. The releases I have listed for may (which, I remind you, are pure speculation and not in any way official) could thus be moved up into earlier waves.

    As such, I don't think we'll see any more new molds in Generations this year unless the line continues alongside the DOTM line.
