Unrelated but isn’t that kinda decepticon appropriation?
What if they include Autobots & Decepticons stickers for Impactor like CW Megatron ?
I'd be satisfied if Impactor has either optional stickers or a faction swapping gimmick.
I’d love to see Armada Wheeljack from Siege Sideswipe. He could even be a rival for the potential Hot Shot from Hound. He’d probably need a new name though.
Cybertron Mudflap would be a cool character to bring back too.
Yes to Micromaster version!
"Meh" to Deluxe...
Still wouldn't mind a CrankCase out of Hounds mold if we're definitely getting a surprise deluxe Decepticon.
The Japanese name for him is Rampage. I wouldn't be against there being some conflation of him and G1 Rampage. They're even both yellow-faced robots with red faces on their chests - not exactly the most tenuous link we've ever had!
Are we 100% sure we're 14/14 for Deluxes? Isn't there the possibility that as the Fanvote/Special Editions Impactor & Mirage may not fall under that count?
We don't know yet. They'll certainly be widely available, but it's not clear if they're part of the 14 count. My guess would be they are part of the 14, but that's just a guess.
Man would I love to finally get a toy of the evergreen Barricade from that sticker app. If that's the case, I hope it's more than just a redeco and head swap of Prowl.
Nice i don't know why but i really like the idea of a chug style Barricade, also imagine if Impactor was a retool of siege Ironhide
My wallet may appreciate that but my heart will rebel yell MORE, MORE, MORE!
Not going to be surprised if these all get cancelled for failing to meet some date because they haven't received the stock yet, as they are wont to do with toy pre-orders that get listed early...
But better believe I still went for some anyway. Much appreciated sharing them. ^_^
I don't even think we're 100% sure that there's only going to be 14 deluxes. I count nothing as 100% until we get the offical Hasbro confirmation. That said, I'm leaning towards this being the deluxe line up, as last time I was optimistic we only got eight Decoy Suits. That said, last time I was cyncial we got a whole new mold for Punch/Counterpunch.
The fact that those listings mark Impactor and Mirage as 'fan vote' might suggest that they're apart from the others in some form more substantial than having 'fan vote' on the box art. On that note, was Optimal Optimus' amazon listing marked with 'fan vote'?
It's about time we got a CHUG Barricade.
He's probably a pretool for Prowl, as he was on the SDCC Siege poster (unless I'm mistaken.)
Or he won’t have a symbol at all not unlike studio series lockdown. Just one on the packaging
Or a flip gimmick like universe Dinobot
So far then Barricade will be the only essential non purchase of this line for me. Much prefer a Sunstreaker or Trailbreaker.
What just dawned on me... with the 12 month lines instead of 18, we’ll be talking about the line AFTER Siege this time next year. In fact, next SDCC we’ll get our first glimpse at the next line.
If by any chance you are browsing through Amazon for more listings, can you keep your eyes open for any studio series voyagers?
Well...maybe. Didn't somebody say that Hasbro has a lot more flexibility this time around if they want to extend a line for an additional amount of time if it sells particularly well (like Titans Return).
