    I don't believe theyd do a TR Windblade, the other 2 I can and would be pretty obvious.

    I can see why Windblade seems unrealistic, but if you look at Highbrow, it's a pretty simple retool. Make some bigger wings and that's her.

    NEW WINDBLADE?!

    I'm perfectly content with the Takara Legends figure but I'm still interested in knowing more (unless is based on the mediocre Scourge/Highbrow mould which would be a complete disappointment).

    Misfire would be pretty cool. Another member of the Scavengers! Hope is a remould of Triggerhappy.

    Twin Twist, who didn't see that coming?

    She is a retool of Highbrow. Misfire is a retool of Triggerhappy.

    If she is a retool of Highbrow hopefully they fix the Titan Master connector, that is what kills the figure for me.

    Yeah I doubt the new Windblade would be better than Takaras RiD one. Also the new Combiner Force one is cool because faceplate

    Windblade as a Highbrow retool is definitely SUPER plausible. Gotta get her in another SDCC set after all.

    No interest in Windblade but Misfire and Twin Twist are definitely bought....which means I'll need to get Topspin too. I love the Mech iDeas duo but I'll support the obscure guys getting new toys as often as I can.

    Windblade was in the Generations comic, I wonder if you guys are also getting a new Drift and Predacons?

    Why in the hell would they do Weirdwolf again instead of a repaint like Carnivac or Cybertron Snarl?

    Welp, if Windblade is indeed a Highbrow retool then I have no interest in it. The mould is simply the worst of the TR line, is not even bad, just immensily average.

    Hoffman, could you tell us how you learned which toys were which prior molds? Like, was a picture shown to you depicting the assortment, or was it detailed to you by someone else?

    retools, rather than repaints is promising.That gives me some hope that the Windblade won't be awful. I think the Highbrow mode would need significant work to pull it off.

    Thanks. I suspected if there even was a visual representation it'd be at most black and white photos of the base molds just to convey the idea. Maybe we'll see some of this during Toy Fair, and find out how Hasbro apparently believes they'll wring a Windblade from Highbrow. :D

    I'm sitting here looking at my TR Highbrow and Windblade and I can see how Windblade could be made from him, however it'd require a Blurr/Brainstorm replacement of parts. I'm actually looking forward to seeing the figure... Our first female Headmaster toy and it's not Arcee! :lol

    Yeah, talk about a missed opportunity. There's so much repaint potential in all of the TR Deluxe molds that isn't being utilized. Sucks FunPub doesn't have the TFCC license anymore, I'd love to see what they'd do with these molds.

    Funny how we went from being sick of repaints during Combiner Wars to practically begging for them in Titans Return.

    Weirdwolf could be a cover name.

    There's a difference between being offered 2-3 versions of a mold and 10-12 versions of the same helicopter over and over again.
