    We've got one scout class Generation toy so far: Windcharger.

    But who else could be scout toys in the line. Personally I'd like to see mini-bots done in them.

    And they can repaint Windcharger into Tailgate.

    Any thoughts on who else they can do?

    Your title is misleading. Windcharger is in the HFTD line/yellow box line, not Generations.

    Well, I could possibly see Brawn or Gears fitting in too.

    True, but we all know there's going to be a repurposing frenzy in the coming months.

    At the press conference he was announced as "Generations Windcharger."

    Some Generations toys were either labeled Generations Deluxe or just Deluxe it seems.

    At this point, it's pretty clear that Hasbro is using the HftD line to supplement various size classes releases that won't be seen in Generations.

    But then again, Universe 2 was just supposed to be new mold Deluxe and Ultras, but then Inferno popped up. So really, anything's possible.

    That doesn't prove anything. It you're talking about Recon Ironhide's extra armory of guns/knives, then those can go on any toy with 3mm hardpoints, and Generations Darkmount has three such weapons and more hardpoints.

    I think it's Generations because that slide clearly shows what appears to be a rubsign directly in front of the hood scoop. HftD doesn't have rubsigns, but Classics does (excluding Universe 2.0).

    Hunt for the Decepticons is a promotion within the 2010 Transformers, yellow box, line. Not the name of the line itself.

    Yeah, it's being changed to something else later on this year isn't it? Something to do with a shield?

    Scout microcassettes? That's a bit of the large side, they're Legends and shouldn't be much larger.

    Id like to see more of Scramble City limbs - similar to the treatment Breakdown got as an ROTF scout.

    I would like more minibots in scout size, so a Gears would be nice. Throttlebots as scouts would be cool as well.
    Well they wouldn't transform into cassettes if done since kids don't know what they are these days. Not sure what they would be, maybe a sports car for Eject since he loves sports.

    A scout size class for Generations would be nice. There are some characters that would look nice in that scale and Hasbro has really been picking up their game on just how nice a scout figure can be in both sculpting and articulation.

    For now though I think we will see things as more of a hybrid in the scout size. Kind of fits Classics and it kind of fits movie without having to make two figures or two sets of packaging. That line between Classic and Movie just keeps getting blurred more all the time.

    Since cassttes are such 80's technology I'd like to see Rumble and Frenzy get a new alt mode so the scout class would work. Soundwave managed to get a car mode in Animated so perhaps it's time Rumble and Frenzy got more mobile as well but a scout size would still make them the little guys with attitude.
