    I found these listings on the website for Midtown Comics:

    Battlemasters Blowpipe -
    Transformers Generations War For Cybertron Battle Masters Blowpipe Action Figure - Midtown Comics

    Deluxe Skytread -
    Transformers Generations War For Cybertron Deluxe Class Skytread Action Figure - Midtown Comics

    Leader Shockwave -
    Transformers Generations War For Cybertron Leader Class Shockwave Action Figure - Midtown Comics

    Micromaster Decepticon Air Strike Patrol -
    Transformers Generations War For Cybertron Micro Masters Decepticon Airstrike Patrol Action Figure - Midtown Comics

    Voyager Megatron -
    Transformers Generations War For Cybertron Voyager Class Megatron Action Figure - Midtown Comics

    The above are listed alongside the previously-announced first wave Autobots. While none of the links have any pictures contained therein, it's quite likely that we will see some leaked here and there over the next few weeks.

    Deluxe Skytread? PLEASE tell me we are getting Flywheels as a Duocon.

    The others I don't really have much interest in.

    Should we assume Skytread is the fabled companion to POTP Battletrap, except in a deluxe package instead of two legends? (and will each component retain a separate robot mode?)

    Definitely want a look at all the others, though I kinda wish Shockwave didn't go full leader-size. I wonder which two Air strike Micros are in the pack. My votes would go to Tailwind and Whisper, but that whole set is full of good ones.

    New Flywheels toy?

    Also I hope Shockwave has some sort of gimmick like UM that has a voyager robot mode component. Because if it's a leader that flies right in the face of Warden saying this line is supposed to have accurate scale.

    Excellent find @NomadVagabond
    I’ll just add to the chorus going “please be a duocon”
    Good to have Megatron and Shockwave confirmed for wave one.

    Good grief! What do we have to do to get a "correct" size Shockwave?!
    Leader is simply too big, unless it's due to some sort of (removable) gimmick that actually makes him a voyager size, this will be a pass for me.
    Much like ALL of the POTP leaders.

    I could see that being Flywheels, though unlike Battletrap I imagine the individual vehicles won't have botmodes (rather it'll be more akin to Cog where they become weapons, I'd assume).

    Leader Shockwave though? Color me surprised; wouldn't think he'd tower over Megatron. Especially with the current emphasis on scale.

    (EDIT: AND HOLD ON A TIC WHAT IF Shockwave is like Magnus in that he's a small Voyager in power armor? Like, hypothetically what if they're nuts enough to give him Onyx Prime cosplay gear?)

    If these are actually true, then I'm very excited! I don't know how to feel about Leader Shockwave, but something tells me he might have an upgrade gimmick similar to Magnus.

    Hope pics are coming soon.

    Interesting though how both Shockwave and Magnus are characters who were in the running for getting Leaders in the POTP fanvote. I suspect whatever we're getting for designs is descended from whatever rough concept sketches they'd done internally before the vote ended.

    Who wants to bet we'll be seeing these specific cons at the Canada Toy Expo next week?

    Also yeah it'd be well..Logical if Shockwave has a similar armor gimmick that Magnus has so that way he can still be in scale while also having an optional armor gimmick for play value. It'd be cool if his armor evoked either his Animated or Movie design.

    I'd love if they went more for armor evoking his TFP or Movie self. Shockwave isn't that built in G1 but in those continuities boy howdy he sure is.

    (Would love it even more if he got Onyx Prime armor but I'm kinda skeptical Hasbro would do that, especially given the continuity is closing soon.)

    I'm quite eager to see what they come up with for this Shockwave.

    It's kind of an important figure really... it's the first real chance for them to show if they are going to be true to scale or not. If it's a Voyager w/ armor, it will set the tone for the rest of the trilogy really. If it's not, and it's just big... we might as well not bother listening to anything else they promise.

    And, it looks like we have our mystery 's' deluxe. Skytread it is! And really, it can't be anything other than a duo-con pair in one package. It wouldn't be a Deluxe triple changer... because it would basically just be a Blitzwing figure with a different paintjob, and I don't see them doing that.

    Okay but I'd rather have a Skytread duo-con team taking up a deluxe slot than Doubledealer. Save him for Voyager at least.

    Skytread sounds great. It'll be nice to have both Duocons together again. I like the other member's idea of Shockwave being a smaller bot with armer similar to Magnus. Then maybe I can finally get a voyager Shockwave for my Classic-verse collection.

    I'm really looking forward to the seekers though, I was hoping wave 1 would have at least one of them.

    yeah; gonna pre-emptively call it here that people are gonna be disappointed when we see Skytread, because he'll be one robot with two altmodes that break apart into weapons. Basically the Decepticon version of Cog in the toyline.

    Adding myself to the chorus for Flywheels.
    Hopefully not as a Weaponizer. If he is, it'll be better than nothing, but it would kind of suck if he isn't two combining legends.
    A Shockwave who is not voyager class is an easy pass.

    That would make a lot of sense if that's the case. It would be sweet if it means we'll be getting the rest of the POTP fanvote characters with similar armor gimmicks in the future of the new WFC trilogy? The idea of an armored up Arcee figure is an awesome idea. I mean sure Siege Hound doesn't have an armor gimmick but that doesn't mean that the idea of him having an armor gimmick won't happen in the future....

    The Prime armor design does make sense too. I was just thinking of ways of how Shockwave' armor can give him a more different look then his usual G1 mode. For all we know it could be something completely different from what we're expecting.
