    I just came back from vacation, I've read lots of the news I missed after the Leader Class Ironhide review And I've noticed that there will be a Human Alliance Roadbuster and a Human Alliance Leadfoot. If those Wreckers are HA do you think it it possible there will be a Topspin? Hey they made it possible for both Twins for HA. If there is I'll buy them, if not whats the point?

    I think they'll almost certainly have more commercial appeal than (for example) ROTF's bike sisters, but at the same time, it's less commercial size class.

    fingers crossed.

    I think I'd prefer them to do Mirage and Wheeljack/Q first. If they're still selling at that point, then maybe it'll be time for another Nascar.

    Also wonder if there'll be a new Mudflap mold. Distribution-wise, the line died over here after Skids and Sideswipe, so we only got 3 figures first time around.

    I wouldn't automatically expect them to do every eligible character; there's a real limit to how many figures they can sell in that class per year.

    They made Roadbuster and Leadfoot, so hopfully, they'll make Topspin as well.
    I wouldn't be surprise if they didn't.

    They have two out of three. Can't see them not making one.

    Also you spelled "guts" wrong.

    I'd love to see a HA Topspin. But the last time Hasbro did a triplet they turned the third into a repaint. So I think the chances could be slim. But if Hasbro does do a third one with a whole new mold for Topspin? Hell yeah!

    I'd say even the Nascar angle would drum up enough of a new customer base to justify a new mold Topspin for HA

    Hopefully, because from what we've seen so far I want the other two but I'm not buying them unless the trio can be completed in the same size.

    I can see them doing Topspin as well. Expectation is that they'll probably get some fringe NASCAR collectors jumping on these as well. Why not tap into that? Makes sense, considering how much in the way of Wreckers product is already out in the first few waves across the classes.

    I seriously hope they will make a HA Topspin. If they do, then I'll buy all three. If not, then guess I'll just buy their Deluxe figures instead.

    I think with all the human alliance stuff out both basics and deluxes they are atleast thinking about a bigger line.So in Topspin's case I bet we will see concept pics this weekend from Botcon,along with a ton of other movie goodies.

    I really hope they do. I'll probably buy them regardless but it will feel empty if one is missing.

    Yes. I'm praying we get a weaponized Leadfoot too
