    I got a very reliable news to share with you guys, although I can't exactly give out alot of details (not that it exist anyway :p )
    SO

    For next year generation Line there will be a line with a code WFC. The size will be Leader, voyager, deluxe, micromaster, and battle master, and a blind box (two 'master' in a line)

    There's a MV6 toys which is odd since there's no movie announced yet aside from Bumblebee (which is MV5) but judging from the type of toys, it's mostly accessories for kids (for now) like tiny turbo, energon igniters which is the main feature for this line, masks, titan changers

    Studio series will continue with leader, voyager, deluxe and all size classes have more characters than what we have right now (so More than 2 leaders, more than 2 voyagers, and more than 5 deluxes). The problem is the news doesn't really say whether all of them are completely new character, or there will be reissues (or repaints) for them (we do know tattooed Starscream is coming right :)  )

    MPM also continue, and will have 1 from TF1, and another from TF2

    So hopefully more news as it breaks :)

    Dude or dudette, this is all old news previously reported on these boards, a little late to the party. BTW, WFC = War For Cybertron.
    :lolol

    Next year does start the War For Cybertron trilogy for Transformers Generations after POTP/Prime Wars ends this year.

    Thanks for the intel @catz ! First time battle/micromasters have been mentioned for WFC.

    Yes we knew Studio Series tattooed Starscream was coming. Other rumored voyagers from listings are another Prime, Bonecrusher and Ironhide.

    Were you given descriptions for the igniters?

    For MPM, I expect TF1 Starscream and ROTF Megatron

    It's not all old, read my post above. Up until now, only MPM Starscream was rumored for next year. Given catz' reliability and sources, he's legit. So 2 MPM's for next year.

    So Battlemasters similar to the Battlestar toys from Takara?

    TF2 it's probably Buster Prime or the TF2 Starscream.

    Battle Masters are probably their new name/pricepoint for Prime Masters. Sounds like that interactivity/play pattern will remain in a similar form.

    And I guess Micromasters are replacing the Scout/Legends pricepoint.

    MV6 is what Hasbro is calling Bumblebee Movie toys, as far as I've heard.

    sadly no, all I got is a bunch of list and that's it

    thanks for the correction and I double check with my previous list and it's correct bumblebee is MV6, so this is a new toy for THAT movie. That would explain the lack of the 'normal' size class

    Heh, there's always a chance I'm wrong though :D

    Yeah, I definitely think the ROTF MPM is going to be Megatron. I imagine he’ll share a fair amount of basic engineering with the Studio Series, but fill in the gaps, have more accurate legs and probably a swappable right hand.

    I'm guessing BattleMasters will be the "Legends" class name change, while Micromasters will expand on the peg system of TM/PM. Curious if the micros will be vehicles, heads, matrix emblems, or all of the above. Do love the blind box two pack approach too. Hopefully it'll mean more variety of all types if they introduce new vehicle ones.

    I'm guessing they may do new vehicle ones, because they were talking about WFC Wheeljack at one point, and it'd make a lot of sense to do a micromaster MTMTE WFC Bumblebee for Wheeljack's MTMTE vehicle to recreate scenes from the pilot episodes. But I do hope Bumblebee still gets a Battlemaster version or deluxe version of that vehicle style too.

    Kind of wondering if BattleTrap is a tease for BattleMasters. That some Battlemasters will have that powerlinx combine aspect and also the option for Titan Masters like BattleTrap has. Would be interesting to have that capability to Micro figures to drive/ride and act as optional heads, but not required. Perfect excuse for SkyTread/FlyWheels and a BattleTrap headmaster.

    Micromasters are back? God I hope they have the Frankenstein vehicle gimmick again

    Glad Studio Series is keeping on. And dear God let the ROTF MPM be Megatron. Oh pleeeeeaaaaaase.

    Interesting. I’m curious as to how they’ll update the Micromasters for a newer generation.

    For the blind box; there’s no further info what it contains it’s just that: blind box :D

    Interesting! Makes sense - the 2018 PotP line has what 1988 G1 had, namely Powermasters like Dreadwind/Darkwing and Pretenders... so the 2019 line will have 1989\'s main features, Micromasters. :) 
    I do wonder what Battlemasters are... Micromaster Transports? And especially about the blindbags.

    Darn, then it's probably single packed Masters of all 3 styles if they add a vehicle/weapon one to the mix.
    Considering starsaber has a jetsword, and they haven't done target masters yet, I'm guessing those may get thrown in the mix somehow too.

    Still all sounds promising.

    The blind bagged concept sounds promising overall though. Anything to get more designs out in circulation at easier to obtain prices and availability like how Walgreens or checkout lanes often have blind bags is a good thing.
