    So can't wait for it. :)  I hope someone at the panel will ask if we'll get the remaining TLK characters that didn't get figures in the Premier line this year like Onslaught.Mohawk,and Dreadbot.

    Would be great if Hasbro decides to revisit M.A.S.K. line.

    A part of me hopes that this crossover garners enough hype & success to make Hasbro wanna put out a M.A.S.K. toyline!

    We have a fantastic MASK reference already, the Titanmaster class.

    A series of heads that provide the wearer with new abilities. Even comes with a transforming vehicle.

    Hasbro just needs to acknowledge it

    Feel like if they're gonna do a Predaking and Abominus they will also open with showing those. Excited too see if any Beast Wars stuff but mainly I wanna know what the gimmick is!

    Finally a peek at POTP...

    Hopefully they focus on 1988-1990 characters this time. And the 1987 Targetmasters...

    I also hope for Predaking, Abominus, Piranacon, and Monstructor..

    My guess is we'll learn about one of them, but as with CW and Titans the molds used will make it clear they're going to planning on reuses for the rest.

    What I can't decide is if I think Hasbro would reveal Monstructor first and the fandom make the realization that the PotP Dinobots will be a combiner, or if they'd just throw up their hands and go "Eff it we're doing a Dinobot combiner" and the fandom is the one who realizes Monstructor is coming.

    When it comes to stuff like this, I'm curious to see if Hasbro continues to give each size-class it's own gimmick even as the whole line has a unifying gimmick.

    Let's say the next gimmick is Powermasters, and everybody Deluxe and bigger has a place to plug the engine block.

    Does that preclude them from still making all Voyagers Triple Changers? And would they continue to give every leader a base mode? Or would they come up with something new for all of the Voyagers to have in common?

    Because they showed no hesitation making non-Headmasters into Headmasters. So would anything stop them from making Headmasters into Targetmasters?

    Yeah, if I was there I would ask that but we'd probably get a bullshit answer tho.

    It's good that the focus is PotP. Very interested to see the official reveal and see what the gimmick is.

    Also hoping they take a minute to show us the Intelligence/Fireblast TR box sets (or, alternately, make clear that they don't exist).

    Hoping for a Solus Prime from this upcoming line and a reveal of the gimmick. Give me Powermasters! (And can we please get more Headmasters and Combiners? Nightbeat and Piranacon are on my mind.)

    I'm hoping for Solus too, as well as them using her in some kind of story; it's a shame that the blacksmith died in the lore

    Agreed here. I find the idea of the character very cool. She was so underutilized. Solus being involved in a story would be greatly appreciated.

    Call me stubborn but it'd be great if someone asked about a shuttle Blast Off to finish off CW Bruticus in G1 style.

    Things I'd like to see revealed for the last wave of Titans Return...

    -Arcee: Just a retool of the Titanmaster Loudmouth, or a remold of Blurr or Chromedome, or an all-new deluxe figure, maybe include a repainted version of the "hoverboard" from that black Powermaster Optimus SDCC exclusive for "Daniel".

    Legends Beachcomber, maybe Frenzy and/or Eject (easy repaints of Rumble/Rewind), tablet Ratbat, Outback (Brawn remold). For deluxes, whatever accompanies Slugslinger (Arcee? new Cyclonus?). For Voyagers, two of the following four: Apeface, Snapdragon, Springer, Sandstorm. Don't really care if there is another leader or more in the titanmaster size.
