And even with Slash, the mold is androgynous enough to go both ways.
I hope this won't mean that we won't be seeing any more updates to the none G1 characters because there are plenty that need updates just as badly as the G1 characters. Given how Hasbro and the design team seems very focused on G1 then with other non G1 series it does worry me a bit that we'll be getting more G1 only and no other non G1 character getting updated. Hopefully I'm wrong.
I would be surprised and bummed if Greenlight and Lancer don't get toys because we're only two members away of us finally having the original Autobot femmes from G1 in toy form. If they're at least exclusives then I'm fine with it. I'm also expecting Windblade to be made from Elita 1.
A Fangry retool from TR Grotesque.
Repugnus and Squeezeplay will share a new mold.
Anyone seen the images of Battletrap? Looks awesome in my opinion and kinda reminds me of the Energon Autobots powerlinx feature.
How would you feel if they re-did Chromia as a limb?
I wouldn't be opposed to the idea along with having Arcee as a combiner limb however I would rather have them do Greenlight and Lancer first if they can because those are two fembots that have yet to see a toy made out of them whereas Arcee and Chromia already have modern figures.
I just figure they might prioritize the fembots with speaking with parts. Even the names Greenlight and Lancer are not very well established compared to the others. From Hasbro’s perspective, those two might be about as high a priority as Wreck-Gar’s girlfriend. (Who I admit I kind of want to see developed.)
Still Starscream. Just pick two random legs for the rest.
And even then, if PotP ended nothing stops Combiners from continuing as part of the next Generations sub-line.
I am pretty convinced that we haven’t seen our last Titan Master either. Watch a full Nightbeat drop in 2019 as a new mold.
Right, as I've been looking at all the rumours, leaks and what have you. Here's my umpteenth take on PotP waves 5 & 6 and the assumed boxsets based mainly on the snames that have shown up in the rumours (Starsaber and Shattered Glass Optimus are wilder, but not unreasonable speculation).
Prime Master: Waverider, Carnivac
Legends: Freeway, Flyswatter, Hotwheels (flywheels duocon. Obviously there's no way they'll get away with calling a tf hotwheels, but you get the idea)
Deluxe: Lancer, Chromia (possibly from the Groove mold), Nautilator, Overbite
Voyager: Snaptrap, Skywarp
Prime Master: Catilla, Finback
Legends: Seawing, Searchlight, Huffer
Deluxe: Skalor, Tentakill, Needlenose, Ranger
Leader: Shattered Glass Optimus
Deluxe Blast Off
Monstructor (Someone gets promoted to Voyager and someone gets demoted to Legends)
Landcross (considering that a)this appeared on a very reliable rumour that predicted so much of what we got through 2017 and b) The Duocon reveals could really work for Landcross, this feels like it might be a possibility. A while back I'd have pegged it as a Takara release, along with Dinoforce redecoes of Monstructor, but now we're seeing the Takara releases align much more closely with Hasbro that seems less likely.)
I wouldn't mind if they skip the cassette gimmick and just gave them robot and vehicle modes like they did with Battletrap.
I would also love an updated Cog (Gasket and Grommet) in this style and maybe even a Slammer plus something to turn into Sixgun.
As awesome as the line is looking so far, I'm a little disappointed that Takara won't be doing their own thing this time around. Was really hoping we could get the Masterforce pretenders in the same way we have Metalhawk (deluxe mold for the inner robot and decoy armor for the pretender shell.) I guess some could be re-purposed from the Western versions (Skullgrin becomes Dauros, etc.) but it would have been nice if there was some deco change to differentiate them a bit here...
Maybe we'll get some sort of box set with them though like with Ginrai and Metalhawk in the strength set.
I really just want more Masterforce updates right now~!
Yeah, I'll be missing the Legends line a lot. They could've easily continued with the PotP legends class figures and pair them up with an unreleased Hasbro TR head. (And maybe rerelease the CW legends class figures within Legend too)
As far as the decoy suits are concerned I was kinda hoping for the same thing you're describing here. I have a thing for the more futuristic alt modes so updated versions of the pretender inner robots is something I'd really like. Adding a decoy suit/target master would be the icing on the cake.
Yeah. That would have been wonderfull if Takara had done that.
Wouldn't have been very hard either.
Quake makes a good Skullgrin
Scourge with a new head could make a good Submarauder
Misfire for Bomb-Burst
retool Windblade for Cloudburst
Twin Twist for Landmine
I want a Deluxe POTP Cyclonus. Four of them.
Every Cyclonus needs an Armada
There are only two things I am hoping for: Two more Decepticons to go with Czarscream, and a Masquerade box set that has CW Optimus, CW Mirage, POTP Jazz, a new POTP Sideswipe, and a deluxe Windcharger exclusive figure from the Dead End mold
This list is missing Deathsaurus as the likely retool of Grimlock. Also, I feel Ultra Magnus from Leader Optimus will happen before a second Shattered Glass repaint, and Dinoforce before Landcross. Otherwise this list is pretty good.
By the end of the PoTP, there better be a Star Saber, Flywheels, and a new Sideswipe and Sunstreaker.
For Takara, I wanna see them release a Sixknight and Quickswitch from the Sixshot mold in their style. Though looking at the recent PoTP figures, I don't see it happening...
Deathsaurus from Grimlock is an interesting one. I've specutlated on Ultra Magnus in a few other posts, but now that I've held PotP Optimus in hand I feel like it's less viable for a retool into Magnus. As for Landcross, well I've been trying to base this list on the existing rumours as much as possible. I'd rather see a Longtooth Prime Master than Catilla, but Catilla is the name that's come up in the leaks/rumours. Likewise, I've seen Landcross come up but not the Dinoforce. If this Hasbro/Takara aligning closer thing wasn't happening I'd have gussed that Takara would do a Dinoforce boxset instead of Monstructor, but now I'm not so sure.
