    It's possible. I mean, we don't know every figure that's being released over the course of the whole line and Hasbro didn't show everything off at Botcon... so yeah, it's possible.

    Still, Hasbro did say that we wouldn't necessarily get a toy of every Constructicon. However, after seeing the movie with all the different Constructicon Clones... I think it's safe to at least speculate that we might see toys of each of the individual vehicles get Transforming toys... then again... maybe not.

    I would like to see the legends robot mode in more detail.
    It's ... interesting.

    I'm hoping that Hasbro meant when they said "not all constructicons" was that we're getting molds for all 7, but not necessarily in every color scheme seen. Or maybe we're not getting that Backhoe guy that was killed to bring back megs.

    Nonetheless, I will be one happy camper if Scrapper, Overload and Hightower get toys.

    Other than the Legends class toy, and Supreme Devs arm, I honestly can't see them giving us any more Hightower toys. It'd be nice, but I'd rather see Overload and Scrapper get Deluxe/Voyager treatment first.

    It was a Scrapper-bot that was killed for parts.

    Yeah, that was like... what... two or three different Scrappers that show up in the movie right?

    I hope he does get a voyager release sometime next year. Thats a crazy robot mode based off the legends figure. would be cool to see done on a larger scale

    If Hightower doesn't get a Voyager toy and Scrapper doesn't get a Deluxe, I will be very angry.

    Overload, I'm not sure whether he should get a Deluxe or a Voyager. Probably Voyager, since he'd make a painully-small Deluxe.

    I'm a little confused on the backhoe/Scrapper guy that gets killed for parts... on the boat there is a red bulldozer, a green dumptruck, a cement mixer, and a yellow vehicle that has a hydraulic arm that says "Volvo" on it. Oh, and Ravage with the Doc in his chest. They dive and we have a red Rampage (bulldozer), Long Haul (dump truck), Mixmaster (cement mixer) and a Scrapper (yellow guy that gets ripped apart). Maybe it was a backhoe that had a really Scrapper-like bot mode, so as to reduce costs or something? The art for Devy did list a backhoe, but it was kinda obscured.

    We saw Scrapper in robot mode in the film, so I'm guessing we'll see one sooner or later.

    Hope so, the robot mode was incredible.


    Hightower and Overload I'm not holding out hope on, since they were never shown in robot mode in the film - although Hightower has a really unique design I'd love to see represented in the main line.

    Otherwise I'll be happy with my Legend.

    I bet Hightower- and to a lesser extent, Overload- will be the Constructicons Hasbro passes over. We've never seen Hightower's robot form, so I KNOW he will be passed over. Scrapper I belive has the most likelyhood of release. Nobody really knows who Overload is, so...

    It's a continuity error in the movie. If you watch the first overhead shot of the constructicons on the boat, there's long haul, mixmaster, rampage, and scrapper (yellow wheel loader)...then in the closeups, scrapper's gone and the volvo vehicle is in his place....then when they're all in bot mode jumping into the ocean, it's scrapper's bot mode jumping off with the rest.

    I think that we should get a Deluxe Overload, Scrapper and Hightower. The deluxe size seems to fit them best.

    I don't care if we get a Hightower toy as long as we get to see if he got a robot mode design and how it looks and not just as a Legend.

    I hope Scrapper gets a deluxe at some point. He looks really cool.

    As much as I want a full blown Hightower toy, I don't have a good feeling about Hasbro making one. Somebody better make sure at the SDCC panel though, and not ask "Will we get Animated Omega Supreme" for the billionth time.

    Stratosphere is just a robot of a vehicle seen in the movie.


    I'm sure they could do the same with the yellow crane.

    I'm a bit curious about this.

    Why make a figure for a vehicle that doesn't transform when there are other figures that can easily fit the size class and have a bigger part in the movie?

    Stratosphere's slot could have easily gone to Overload, or Hightower....

    You know what I mean? Get rid off the bots that had big roles in the movie then do offscreen characters.

    I can safely say I would buy the remaining Constructions if they were to make them. Especially Overload, he looks like he would make an interesting toy.
