    The FunPub version was 5 guys from seemingly random parts of the multiverse fused into one: Skyfall, Landquake, Topspin, Breakaway (specifically not Getaway), and Heatwave.

    According to the Covenant, he's basically an ever shifting mass of parts that he can divide into multiple autonomous bots as needed.

    But, in the aligned fiction he and Megatronus have a past when it comes to being rivals for the affections of Solus Prime...who Megatronus eventually killed.

    So if I had my druthers, the two boxed sets would be Megatronus and Nexus. The storyline being Megatronus obtaining the Enigma after a battle with Nexus, and infecting it as we saw at the end of the TR Machinima.

    This gives Megatronus the ability to fuse 5 loyal Decepticons (from whatever figures happen to be handy) into a new body for himself. Nexus counters by fusing 5 Autobots using his own essence. This justifies the boxed sets replacing the pack-in Enigma with their respective Primemaster.

    Would love an official Nexus Prime toy myself. Hopefully in the colors of the club toy.
    I always loved those colors. The altmodes were pretty good too.

    Damn I really like those ideas, though I wonder how a Voyager G1 shockwave would work as a combiner torso. I also feel like Nautilator will get demoted to Legends since some fiction (like the Dreamwave bios) indicate that the team prefers he not combine with them directly. The Wildfly head we saw on Cutthroat makes a Monstructor boxset extremely likely also.
    A Voyager Windblade sounds ridiculous to me, but then again we got a Headmaster Windblade last year so I guess anything is possible...

    I'm expecting either Voyager Windblade or a Windblade/Strongarm Duocon using the Flywheels jet and Battletrap truck.

    I'm hoping she doesn't get a toy at all in this line just like Combiner Wars. if-that-happened-i-would-be-so-happy-com-13842021.png

    I don't know. I just don't like her, that's all.

    Windblade seems very likely at this point in time. I see no reason for Elita-1 to be a jet other than the eventual Windblade redo.

    In other news, looks like the speculation over Prime based box sets has been debunked by the recent Blast Off box art. Seems unlikely that a Combiner set would have box art for a specific limb instead of the Combiner as a whole.

    It does, however, offer up more speculation. What if we get "character packs" with an associated Prime? In that instance, I think we might see an Arcee with "Solus Prime" set later on. As someone pointed out, Moonracer has details that signify a possible Arcee remold but we don't have any female bots known beyond Novastar and it would be odd to spread a team so far. Then, we already have a pink bot at retail so Arcee would lend herself better to a special release. Solus is being featured in the cartoon and is a girl (not really something tangible, but it's a toy company) so I can see her as a Prime Master pack in.

    Maybe we will see Deluxe Thundercracker w/ Liege Maximo too. I don't think there's any evil Prime beyond he and Maximo, so I don't see Skywarp getting released unless he's with an unfitting Prime. That, and he hasn't been rumored yet(right?).

    This was listed in the news section of the site concerning possible future POTP releases both main retail and exclusives.

    4chan POTP leaks

    This is likely fake given the source but still most of these listings are at least more plausible then others.

    Outcome seems likely.

    I know I'm super duper slow on this, because I'm just like: Yay! Cool toys! But I don't get the backpack Prime Power thing. I don't get how to choose how your toy carries Prime Power. Why does my Swoop say Megatronus Swoop? Is it some random thing where you get to choose its prime power?

    Deluxe Repugnus, along with Blastoff, confirmed thanks to @Nevermore
    This is the most exciting thing I’ve heard since those screenshots got leaked. I was not expecting that.
    Now we can speculate on what they’re going to do with him. Would they give us a third tweak of the Twinferno mold or will this be a fancy redo of Rippersnapper? Both options make as much sense to me.

    4chan is incredibly unreliable, but the Maximal Dinobots would be pretty thrilling (for my Star Seekers.) Piranacon being an exclusive not so much.

    I wonder if they would go the technoorganic route for the Maximal Dinobots, leading into a Megatron from T-Wrecks? I somewhat doubt it. The idea of them being real is shaky enough, but I can't see them as anything beyond recolors in the case of their existence.
    Repungus is great news. I got to get Grotesque soon. I would prefer Rippersnapper of them for the mold differentiation, but then again I think they should all be Headmasters and I have Repungus's Titan Master waiting for a body. Don't think a Combiner + Titan Master port is possible on a Deluxe.

    Rippersnapper wouldn't make a bad Repugnus. His promo pics include attaching his guns to the beast head which resembles how Repugnus looks in Bot mode.

    The only thing missing is the beast arms on his chest which wouldn't be the most impossible thing to retool. Especially if released as a pricier exclusive.

    There alot of pages here so I do not feel like going through it all but what do you guys think the chances of Thundercracker and Skywarp repaints coming from the Starscream mold. I know people do not like the mold but I got Starscream today and actually like him and would like to get all three in the same mold so hopefully this be my chance.
