    So I compiled all of the pics of instructions that show new heads. Thought it might help in some capacity. But lets take a look and speculate

    1. HFTD Tomahawk
    [​IMG]

    2. HFTD Terradive
    [​IMG]

    3. RTS G2 Optimus Prime
    [​IMG]

    4. RTS Wreck Gar
    [​IMG]

    5. Generations Scourge
    [​IMG]

    6. Generations Kup
    [​IMG]

    7. RTS Lugnut
    [​IMG]

    8. Generations Warpath
    [​IMG]

    9. Generations Thunderwing
    [​IMG]

    Aside from Wreck Gar and Tomahawk (who we've seen as Vortex, but I can't find the pic)
    Who are these guys? Speculate away.

    1. Vortex, although he could end up with a different name and color scheme in the US

    2. No idea, rumored Space Case from recent movie comic

    3. Speculated Toxitron or Nemesis Prime

    4. Speculated Junkion

    5. Speculated Leozak or Senator Ratbat

    6. Speculated Gears, Orion Pax

    7. No idea

    8. Speculated Hardhead, Spark Crusher, Quake

    9. Speculated Black Shadow

    Your thoughts on each of these?

    the prime mold kinda has a sentinal prime vibe to me for some reason

    gears just seems like an obvious choice for that mold

    but i suppoe it could be another target master with a rather earthy update

    Doesn't matter because they're not Bayformers and therefore will never be released.

    Lugnut's, for some reason looks like it could be Energon Demolisher??? :stick:  (the circle on the face appears to have an eye either side of it & the head has the same shape).

    Just like the other fifty Classics-style molds, most of which were released a couple of different times. :lol 

    Also, Vortex at the very least is being sold as a "Bayformer." :p

    Leaving off Legends, Minicons, Robot Heroes, Masterpieces, and retools (no matter how extensive)...

    Classics (2006)
    6 Deluxe molds
    3 Voyager molds

    Universe (2008)
    10 Deluxe molds
    1 Voyager mold
    3 Ultra molds

    Generations (2010)
    10 Deluxe molds

    Reveal the Shield (2010)
    5 Deluxe molds
    1 Voyager mold
    1 Scout mold

    That adds up to 40. So I'm a little short. I of course left off many highly desired retools and redecos, and anything even slightly ambiguous (such as Seaspray from HftD, who was redecoed into Deep Dive from RtS).

    Note that even with my frankly pathetic resources (grad student) I found end of line bastards like Warpath and Windcharger trivial to obtain online. So they count.

    Hasbro sometimes drops the axe pretty hard, but if you think they are going to just light those molds on fire, I have a bridge to sell you. Note the trend. 2006: 9. 2008: 14. 2010: 17. WE ARE NEVER GOING TO SEE A CLASSICS FIGURE AGAIN PANIC TIME.

    Oh hey, remember Red Alert and Thundercracker? I got them for $10 and $13 respectively. What did people pay for the Henkei versions again? I don't even like them that much, I might just give them to my dog. :p 

    QUICK BUY TAKTOMY BECAUSE HASBRO HATES GIVING US REDECOS WHICH ARE PURE UNADULTERATED PROFIT.

    THE YEAR 2013 WILL NEVER HAPPEN, ASK THE MAYANS.

    They'll probably turn up after the movie in the next iteration of the line formally known as Classics. I believe we already have a name for the junkion in the Ark guide book (I''d look myself but I appear to have mislaid my copy :( )

    What, derailed your nice thread? Sorry about that.

    Anyway, that Kup remold is definitely Gears. And I'd like to see Tomahawk redone as Spinister, to match Warpath as Quake.

    I seem to remember a Hasbro bod saying that the Lugnut alt head was just a random design they liked the look of - not meant to be anyone.

    Yes I remember that. They said some of the heads were done purely for a second release, to give something that looks cool, not necessarily to be any particular character.

    Sure, sorry if my post made that confusing. But yeah, Lugnut, G2 prime, Kup could all be new characters for sure. But, I wouldn't have thought Space Case for terradives mold either. They could surprise is in name only :)
