    Wave 5 sounds like a big let down.

    I wonder if Wolfwire is a fixed version that doesn't crack?

    A Windblade headmaster?

    ...Given how fancy her head is, does it have something that pops up or something to form the back of her head?

    It seams like there is always one retool and one repaint of a deluxe figure. So if highbrow is the retool of scourge then windblade would have to be a repaint of highbrow. (I was guessing it would have been spinster) Using that same theory you could guess Misfire is the retool of Topspin and twin twist is the repaint of Topspin. But triggerhappy still doesn't have a repaint or a retool yet it is possible he could be retooled into misfire. (I was guessing it would have been cyclonus)

    Interesting news.

    Windblade out of Highbrow actually makes sense.

    It's weird if i'm more excited about this wave (if it's true but sounds obvious) than the things they showed in TLK?.

    RiD Windblade is pretty awesome. I can't see a high brow retool topping that!

    I can't see a Highbrow retool of her period, lol. I mean, not that I'm not a Strongarm/Strika fan and all, but that will be a chunky lady. Not really what I think of when I think Windblade. Hopefully they tone the geisha way down this time, that's getting a little old IMO.

    Hope Windblade still has some blades for weapons. Glad Misfire is a retool of Triggerhappy instead of Topspin.

    I'd have picked Topspin for Misfire but maybe they'll go with Topspin for Slugslinger instead.

    Hope they go with the IDW headsculpt for Misfire.

    So organising those codes sequentially we've only got four gaps, C2392-C2395, which are presumably the four Deluxes. So we're probably only getting three TMs and two Legends, or at least three new TMs and two new Legends.

    That then poses the question, does Wolfwire get the 4th Deluxe product code or is there someone we haven't heard about yet?

    looking at @artiepants excellent Titans Return Checklist we can probably workout Wave 6.
    Titan Masters: Battletrap, Ranger, Hosehead, Grotusque, Arcee
    Legends: Freeway, Searchlight
    Deluxe: Crosshairs, Slugslinger, Cloudraker, Wingspan
    Voyager: Apeface, Snapdragon
    Leader: Deathsarus

    If we do get Deathsarus I'm going to be so annoyed. Not having Scorponok in a line that celebrates the old '87 Headmasters is just maddening beyond words. In the UK, where we didn't get Fort Max, he was the standout of the line. Just about everyone I knew got him as an Xmas present in 1987. I suppose we may get him as the Titan of 2018, but still...

    ... and a Mainframe from Perceptor. And a Flywheels from Blitzwing/Megatron. And I'll never be happy because I'm a Wingspan & Pounce from Mindwipe & Wolfwire... (essentially I'll never be satisfied in my lust for plastic).

    I'm kind of surprized that Misfire isn't using the Topsin mold. It screams Misfire.

    Wingblade is a shock. It could end up actually being a better figure than her Generations version if they give it the right level of care.

    Or it could be for a completely different toy line. The stock codes are Hasbro wide, not just for TFs. Although codes together tend to indicate release together that isn't always so.

    Have a peak at UPC/EAN barcode list for modern Transformers toys

    Here's a selection from the Legends:

    Autobot Stripes: Hasbro product code # B5610, UPC # 630509385683 (TR w1)
    Wreck-Gar: Hasbro product code # B5611, UPC # 630509385676 (CW w6)
    Autobot Rewind: Hasbro product code # B5612, UPC # 630509385669 (TR w1)
    Ravage: Hasbro product code # B7022, UPC # 630509414451 (TR w2)
    Decepticon Rumble: Hasbro product code # B7023, UPC # 630509414468 (TR w2)
    Autobot Wheelie: Hasbro product code # B7024, UPC # 630509414475 (TR w1)
    Laserbeak: Hasbro product code # B7585, UPC # 630509463725 (TR w2)

    I'm still disappointed we didn't get a Tailwind version of that mold

    I mean, Tailwind from Blades, Barricade from Prowl, Blight from Groove, Flatline from First Aid, and Supressor from Hot Spot. Bamn, instant combiner
