    We know some of them already, and while it may seem a little early, harmless speculation never hurt anyone...


    WFC Prime - WFC Ultra Magnus or Nemesis Prime. New head and get Motormaster.

    WFC Bumblebee - WFC Cliffjumper confirmed.

    Drift - Blurr confirmed.

    Thrust - Already a remold. Though maybe a repaint into another new seeker.

    WFC Megatron - egads, no clue.

    WFC Soundwave - WFC Blaster with new head.

    Darkmount - Skullgrin confirmed.

    Red Alert - Already a remold.

    Blurr - Already a remold.

    Dirge - Already a remold.

    Perceptor - Reflector confirmed.

    Jazz - Ricochet would be obvious. Jackpot would be spectacular. Rad and Kickoff would be great, too.

    Scourge - No clue.

    Thunderwing - Black Shadow with new head. Give it a new US name, I don't care, but I'd LOVE to have this.

    Tracks - Wheeljack with new head. Road Rage would be great, but unlikely.

    Windcharger - Dare we see Tailpipe return? Actually, this mold could also suit the aforementioned Jackpot, Rad, and Kickoff. Anything to get Action Master characters into the 21st century.

    Didn't they give a hint of what the Scourge remold was going to be at Botcon?

    Why does everyone want Wheeljack to be a retool of Tracks so badly?

    Because the body styles are pretty similar, and it would finally give us Wheeljack that people have moaned about for so many years... It'd also open up a slot for a NEW MOLD for someone like Trailerbreaker/Hoist.

    Skids can be an Ironhide repaint for all I care. haha

    Remolding Scourge would be a challenge...his head is very distinctive and is incorporated into his transformation. If they thought they could get all of us to buy three, they could tweak the face and make it a Sweep, lol. Otherwise, the most we can hope for is a redeco that either IS Scourge or will be some other flight-mode legacy character who has developed a beard...

    I don't think Hasbro has ever shown us that they are desiring to redeco or remold EVERY character in a line. Scourge strikes me as unlikely, as does Megatron. At least Megatron could legitimately look like someone else with a new head, color scheme, and gun though.

    I get they share some similarities but by that account why not just make Jazz a remold of Prowl? It seems Hasbro's wanting to continue Generations on for awhile, and as the first Autobot seen in the G1 cartoon Wheeljack certainly deserves his own mold. :)

    Ignoring all other considerations, of course Wheeljack getting his own mold would be the top choice.

    But if that's just not in the cards, I'd be quite happy to get Wheeljack as a remold of Tracks.

    Likewise if it were a choice between only these two options:
    1.) Wheeljack gets his own mold & Tracks's mold is used a second time for some other random bot.
    -or-
    2.) Wheeljack is made from Tracks's mold and the other new mold slot goes to Trailbreaker(with Hoist remold)

    It's not even close, of course I'd choose option #2.

    Scourge - Devcon
    Animated arcee - Elita-1
    Animated Ironhide - Autotrooper
    Kup - Orion Pax (it's just too obvious)
    Arcee - All fembots (new heads)
    red alert - wheeljack (he needs the shoulder canon, and new head)
    Trailbreaker needs a new mold.
    classics bumblebee - Goldbug


    Tracks as wheeljack just doesn't work. The head area is all wrong, it may have the wings, but the shoulder canon is needed moreso. Tracks just doesn't work. Sunstreaker with a new head, gun, and winged engine block does though.

    Well I don't know if they'll ever do it, but the top of my list has Hoist to Trailbreaker.

    These are some repaints I think are likely for the future of this line...

    -Swerve- From the new Jazz mold. I remember reading someone's comment that they thought the alternate head for this mold looked like Swerve's head design. Would make sense to me.

    -Wheeljack- From the new Tracks mold. A new mold for him would be ideal, but with a new head and awesome paint job, the Tracks mold will do the job, imho. Save the new mold possibilities for others.

    -Starscream- From the new Thunderwing mold. With an alternate head sculpt, I could see it making for a decent Machine Wars SS homage.

    -Ultra Magnus- From the new Legends class Optimus Prime mold. It's been a long enough time since the last Prime-to-Magnus repaint was released, so I think it's time for another one. Would be interesting to see how a fan-made trailer/armor could turn out for the figure.

    -Skywarp- From the new Legends class Starscream mold. It's inevitable that this mold get's repaints in one form or another (single and/or multi-packs). SW is my favorite Seeker, so I really hope he gets a wide release repaint at some point, or at least an easy-to-get exclusive.

    I was gonna say... I specifically remember putting Skullgrin in...

    Where's the Kup stuff coming from? Kup hasn't been confirmed, just hinted. Definitely way too soon since we've seen nothing on him.

    Now Star Saber out of Thunderwing.... THAT could be cool. Too bad Deathsauras will dwarf him in size.

    I think they should have made a Universe/Generations version of Ramjet maybe in Universe or G2 Colors.

    Generations Scourge might repaint into Sideways (Noisemaze).

    He was mentioned without being shown. Apparently he was one of five slides that Hasbro had removed from the Botcon presentation. While mentioning that one of the reps mentioned Kup while "coughing". It was also mentioned pre-Botcon that Kup and/or Arcee were going to be made in Generations at some point, and that something would be said at Botcon.

    Personally I hope Arcee also gets made. Something about wanting to make more female characters as toys was mentioned during the Q&A, so hopefully that means Arcee and Slipstream are on their way in some form.

    I think they're doing that for a future TFclup exclusive, along with the repaint of Classics Rodimus as RID Side Burn.

    With an alternate head I could see that working. One of the few things I could imagine it being redecoed in, and something I can imagine myself buying. Would be kinda funny at the same time considering that the Cybertron Sideways mold was repainted/retooled into Scourge for Botcon.

    I REALLY hope that Tracks isn't remolded into Wheeljack. The backpack doesn't work for Wheeljack, the legs are different, and the car mode is completely wrong. About the only similarity that Tracks and Wheeljack have to each of there are roof chests and wings, and the latter feature doesn't even look the same on either. If Jazz is able to get a mold distinct from Prowl, I expect nothing less for Wheeljack. I'm not worried that it might take away a mold slot for Trailbreaker/Hoist. He's on Hasbro's radar, so he's getting something sooner or later.

    On top of those concerns, I don't even like the Tracks mold based on what I've seen of it. It's best they elect to do the repaint of Tracks into yellow like his Binaltech, or red like into Road Rage.
