    toyhax upgrades are your friend for Wheeljack - utterly glorious set that transforms (pun possibly intended) a milky mess into a really, really nice fig - IMHO -

    would also be up for a Thunderwing - he's in dire need of a leader-class update

    You know wheel Jack was okay, he just needed a lot of paint. Sunstreaker, yeah just looked at him he's all kinds of terrible. Unfortunately I expect them to move on and give us Sideswipe.

    If they don't do a Sideswipe I will write a letter to Hasbro complaining. But I need a new Wheeljack and Sunstreaker.

    So, those reveals. Like the spoilt brat I am I wanted to see...more? Silly, I know. But it would have been cool to see some more Prime Masters, maybe some of the Fembots and Terrorcons. Maybe that's good though, PotP still has plenty of 'mysteries' to reveal.

    But those Dinobots! I'll get the minor negatives out the way. Sludge doesn't look quite right in robot mode. Like he's missing a bit of upper torso bulk. Grimlock's chest looks a bit weird and his dino legs look a wee bit misproportioned. I imagine that's a concequence of the whole combining shtick.

    And that's it. Otherwise these look absoloutely amazing. Obviously I love how faithful they look to the G1 stuff. They really look like they could have stepped right out of 'In the National Interest'. The Dinomodes are particularly beautiful. I genuinely love that they have the transparent parts. Snarl and Slag (no, not Slug) are early favourites from what I've seen. I'm totally into Slash and would be happy to see her appear in the comics.

    I'm impressed with the Leader Class Prime. I don't want it (but I'll inevitably get it) but I'm really impressed. Vehicle mode is really the weak point for me, but really I'm just impressed with how well executed the 'evolution' concept is.

    Just watching the video of the panel that Seibertron have put up. Two interesting hints in the Q&A; there's a mention of diaclone varients for the Dinobots, which the blue chest toy/red chest render of Swoop. Also, a young lad asks about a Voyager Shockwave and John Warden gives a response that makes me a bit optimistic we might see this come to pass in PotP.

    Isn't there a few more days of reveals? If not, I certainly agree it's a bit underwhelming.

    I'm excited, but I did want to see more of the Decepticons personally. Still this is a good tease. Bring on the preorders.

    All I can say is there will be some things bought and others skipped. It's the nature of the game.

    I'm still inclined to think we'll see Star Saber and Thunderwing as Leader class figures in POTP:

    Optimus Prime
    Rodimus Prime
    Optimal Optimus
    Ultra Magnus (Retool of Optimus Prime)
    Star Saber
    Thunderwing (Retool of Star Saber)

    That would take the total of new Leader molds for the line to 4.

    Is that just one Decpeticon? this line seems really good guy heavy so far.But regardless that looks like a good line up leader wise.

    I could see a really good minimus out of Orion for the prime mold, so maybe a better idw mags?

    With the return of CW ports, I am on board with Stateside individual releases of Takara's Blastoff, Nosecone, and Lightspeed.

    And maybe a Red Alert from Breakdown.

    I'd be suprised if Red Alert/Sideswipe aren't pre-planned retools of Jazz. Seems like a gimme to me

    Slag into Horri-Bull would be such an easy minor retool, all he'd need is new bot and beast heads really. Also, Needlenose from one of the jets, and make them part of the same Combiner team as a nod to their IDW selves.

    I'm definitely looking forward to Rodimus. He's had an interesting evolution throughout the "Prime Wars Trilogy", starting as a Legends in Combiner Wars, becoming a Deluxe in Titans Return, and now skipping past Voyager straight to Leader. Go Hot Rod!

    Actually, I'm really interested to see what Leaders we get on the Decepticon side if all Leader class are going for that "armor-up" transformation with Matrix/Prime Master chest port. That's not something Decepticons are generally known for. Thunderwing seems a given as he's one of the few Cons I can think of who held the Matrix.

    What is the big deal with Thunderwing anyway? How big of a character was he?

    I'm personally just hoping for a new Cosmos mold. Maybe something new for First Aid as well.

    But the top of the things I want is a Spinister release. I can't seem to find a figure for him anywhere (and being new to this site I'm not sure where to ask for it), and I'm hoping that maybe he'll get an original mold? Hopefully?

    Maybe it's the comics. I only remember his Generation toy and his appearance in the Prime DS game.
    Why? Cosmos got a figure in CW and a repaint in TR. You literally had two chances to get him and I really don't want another Cosmos figure. First Aid is a maybe for me. I personally think he's ok.

    Spinister was a Botcon exclusive or whatever as a combiner limb for Thunder Mayhem I think it was called. I'd be okay if he got a mold of his own but I doubt it. I was hoping he'd get a toy for TR.

    I'm going by Earth Wars so I'm assuming Sideswipe is probably gonna be another retool of the Breakdown mold to go with his brother, Sunstreaker. Red Alert is probably gonna be the same case since it's Inferno as the torso.
    Maybe a Strafe too please? :)  I'd like the whole Technobot team to get individual releases for this line but the Takara versions if possible since I've got a budget to work with.

    He was pretty major towards the end run of the original G1/Marvel comics. As someone else said, he's one of the few Decepticons to ever wield the Matrix (so that fits with the PotP playstyle too).
