    1. There will be a new Soundwave figure that will work with the Legends Buzzsaw we saw Hasbro reveal.

    Updated 7-9-2015, Episode 115

    The hosts claim to have seen pictures from their source. To quote Charles "I have seen shit that would turn you white!"
    1. Powermaster Optimus Prime inspired figure may be a "triple threat" Powermaster/Headmaster/Targetmaster. He will be a heavy retool of Combiner Wars Leader Ultra Magnus.
    2. Everything in Titan Wars will be a Headmaster. Heads will look like small versions of the large robots. Add-on heads will be sold seperately in small Legends size packs.
    3. Hasbro reveals of Titan Wars will be revealed at NYCC 2015.

    --

    Update 7-15-2015

    1. Soundwave will be a retool of Blaster with a base and iPod Hifi mode.
    2. There will be a Rewind figure who interact with Blaster. It will have a tablet and tank mode.
    3. There will be a Stripes figure. Looks a lot like Steeljaw.
    4. "Tapes" for the commnicators will feature heavily in Titan Wars.

    Note: Rewind and Stripes were confiremed at NYCC 2015.

    --

    Episode 119
    Rumors for 7/30/2015

    1. Blaster is Leader Class.
    2. Soundwave is Leader Class.
    3. Leader Class Optimus Prime's head will turn into a Ginrai/High-Q. No word on whether it has a base mode or Roller, but Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus can do a base mode, so it's likely.
    4. It looks like the Headmasters will fit on Generations Voyager Brainstorm.
    5. It does not look like Cerebros will have a vehicle mode.
    6. Titans Return will be very season 3/4 and The Rebirth centric. Think twice before buying third party Headmasters. (they might be Voyager size).
    7. Headmasters will all come with a small accessory/partner who is a vehicle for the Autobots or a creature for the Decepticons, that the head can connect to. These accessories have 5mm pegs, for possible weapon modes.
    8. For the Deluxes in Titan Wars, expect the 1986 movie robots in "2005" Cybertronian alt modes, like Blurr, Hot Rod and Kup. (note, Charles later clairified that Hot Rod and Kup were speculation).

    Note: Leader class Blaster was displayed at NYCC 2015

    Rumors for 8/7/2015

    1. Titan Wars will have a Legends class Rewind, Rumble and Frenzy.
    2. Titan Wars will have a Headmaster Galvatron, size class unconfirmed.

    Note: Voyager Galvatron was displayed at NYCC 2015.

    Episode 121
    Rumors for 8/13/2015

    This week's Transmissions Titan War leaks.
    1. Titan Wars Headmaster Galvatron will NOT be a remold of Combiner Wars Leader Megatron. Its form is based on G1 Galvatron toy and IDW Spotlight Galvatron.
    2. The "Deluxes" in Titan Wars will perhaps be larger and more complex than recent Deluxes, possibly with a larger price point more like a Voyager.
    3. The small partners that come with the figures for Titan Wars will be called "Titan Masters".

    Note: Voyager Galvatron was displayed at NYCC 2015. Smalll figures were called Titan Masters.

    --

    Episode 122
    Rumors for 8/20/2015

    Just the one piece of news/rumor for this week.

    1. There will be a Titan Wars Headmaster Sentinel Prime. He will be a Headmaster. His colors are based on the WFC Sentinel Prime. Size class and alt mode unknown.

    Note: A Headmaster Sentinel Prime figure was revealed at NYCC 2015, but the rumors of his colors ended up being wrong.

    --

    Episode 123
    Rumors for 8/27/2015

    1. There will be a Titan Wars Alpha Trion toy. Size class unknown. It seems to have beast mode kibble on it. Possibly a triple changer with beast and ship alt modes.
    2. Upcoming Headmasters will include Brainstorm (may or may not be a reuse of the Voyager Generations mold), Chromedome, Hardhead, Highbrow, Nightbeat, Siren, Horribull and Skullcruncher.
    3. Upcoming Deluxe 1986 movie accurate figures will include Scourge and Blurr.

    Note: Deluxe Hardhead and Skullcruncher and Titan Masters Nightbeat, Siren and Horribull were all revealed at NYCC 2015.

    --

    Rumors for 9/4/2015

    1. Titan Wars Headmaster Galvatron and Headmaster Sentinel Prime will both be VOYAGER class figures.
    2. Titan Wars Alpha Trion is NOT a remold of Combiner Wars Sky Lynx (this was a question asked last week).
    3. Cassettes coming out include Ravage (turns into a PDA and a plane) and Rumble (red and black, turns into PDA and tank).
    4. The Headmaster (called Titanmaster) figures will have helmets built into the figures, and the head figured will fit into the helmets. You can swap the heads to change the faces.
    5. Headmaster Blaster's head looks like a tiny Blaster, Headmaster Soundwave's head looks like a tiny SG Soundwave.

    Note: Ravage turning into a plane and Rumble into a tank seems to imply they use the Stripes Rewiond molds revealed at NYCC 2015. NYCC 2015 also confirmed the helmets and and Blaster's headmaster looking like a tiny Blaster.
    --

    Updates for 9/25/2015

    1. Combiner Wars (yes a Combiners Wars rumor!) will have a G2 Bruticus boxed set.
    2. Titan Wars Headmaster Brainstorm will be a Deluxe, not the Generations Voyager mold.
    3. Titan Wars Decepticon Headmasters will include Mindwipe and Weirdwolf.

    Note: Hasbro released official images of G2 Bruticus box set on 11/20/2015.

    --

    Updated for 10/30/2015

    1. Legends Laserbeak, a recolor of Combiner Wars Legends Buzzsaw.
    2. Deluxe Afterburner, a recolor/remold from Unite Warriors Deluxe Groove.
    3. Deluxe Lightspeed, a recolor/remold from a Combiner Wars Stunticon car limb.
    4. Deluxe Nosecone, a recolor/remold of Combiner Wars Brawl (yes, with the drill from BotCon Ramhorn).
    5. Deluxe Strafe, a recolor/remold of a Combiner Wars Aerialbot limb jet mold. Probably not remolded much from being a conventional Earth jet though.
    6. Voyager Astrotrain, a recolor/remold of Titan Return Voyager Sentinel Prime, seen at NYCC.

    --

    Update 11-3-2015 from a Facebook post

    1. The upcoming Blurr and Scourge figures are Deluxe Headmasters, just like Hardhead and Skullsmasher.
    2. They have no information on an upcoming Combiner Wars Predaking.
    3. The four Titanmasters that Hasbro revealed at NYCC were the only ones Transmissions knows about. This would mean other figures that were mentioned in Transmissions rumors, but not seen from Hasbro yet (Highbrow, Chromedome, Brainstorm, Mindwipe, Weirdwolf, Alpha Trion) are likely full sized figures.
    4. Astrotrain is a straight recolor of Sentinel Prime with a new head.

    --

    Update 11/6/2015

    1. They repeat they have no information on a Combiner Wars Predaking. They simply do not know.
    2. Combiner Wars Technobots will have newer style hands/feet, possibly new molds or the molds used on Victorion.
    3. The unrevealed first wave Titans Return Deluxes are Scourge and Blurr.
    4. The unrevealed first wave Titans Return Leader is Optimus Prime. His chest will look like the chest of God Ginrai (also seen on the release of Power Master Optimus Prime with Apex Bomber in the Commemorative Series).
    5. There will be a Legends Scrounge based on the Generations Legends Cosmos mold. It MIGHT have a new head.
    6. For the 30th anniversary of the movie, there will be a box set of Platinum Edition Rodimus Prime vs. Galvatron, but no confirmation on what molds will be in this set.

    --

    Update 11/12/2015

    1. TR Voyager Sentinel Prime/Astrotrain mold is based on the IDW Astrotrain concept art.
    2. No information on whether we will be getting a space shuttle version of Blast Off.
    3. TR Alpha Trion is a Voyager with a Titanmaster.
    4. The CW Abominus photos going around are fakes. No word on whether HasTak is making their own CW Abominus.
    5. TR Leader Optimus Prime will have a closed trailer, not the open one from Ultra Magnus. It does not have Magnus’ giant shoulders, and the missile launchers from Magnus will be replaced with Powermaster Prime style cannons. The God Ginrai style chest is not removable. The truck mode cab will be slightly modified from Magnus.

    --

    Update for 11-19-2015 - episode 140

    1. Listener question answer - there is no information about any upcoming Triple Changers of Octane or Broadside.
    2. The recently leaked image of Fortress Maximus looks legit, but no additional information.
    3. Combiner Wars or Unite (the hosts seemed unsure if this was a US or Japanese release) Voyager Deathsaurus from CW Sky Lynx. Will have a partner of Arms Micron Gul as his Breast Force partner.
    4. Combiner Wars or Unite Deluxe Hellbat from a Deluxe Aerialbot jet limb.
    5. Combiner Wars or Unite Deluxe Guyhawk from a Deluxe Aerialbot jet limb.

    4. SDCC set will contain Sentinel Prime vs. Brainstorm and Windblade.

    --

    2. Titans Return Scourge's partner will be named Fracas.
    3. Legends Sharkticon Gnaw is coming. G1 movie accurate.

    New announcements for the 2017 line! Post Titans Return - Prime Wars Part 3? Earth Wars? No name yet.

    Updates for episode 156, 2/25/2016

    1. Titans Return Voyager Alpha Trion's third mode is a "lion", and his Titan Master partner is named Sovereign.
    2. On the back of the Alpha Trion box a Titan Master Brawn head listed as a co-sell, in the same way other co-sells were listed on the back on the first wave's boxes.
    3. Laser Optimus Prime will be released in 2017. Unknown if it is in Titans Return or the next line. He is a Voyager, but no confirmaton that he is a triple changer. He has two heads, one based on Laser Optimus, and Star Convoy (one head may ship separately or be part of another figure).
    4. Tank Megatron will be released in 2017. Unknown if it is in Titans Return or the next line. He is a Voyager. Has MTMTE influence, chest swirls, tank turret on the back. Comes with both Autobot and Decepticon stickers.
    5. They are confirming the rumor of a Titans Return Deluxe Hot Rod heard from other sources, very G1 looking. Could share some Chromedome engineering/transformation, but it's a new mold.
    6. Titans Return Deluxe Getaway, repaint of Chromedome, with IDW style head.
    7. Titans Return Deluxe Triggerhappy. New mold.
    8. Titans Return Deluxe Monsterbot Doublecross. (speculation, he could be remolded into other beasts)

    More next week.

    Episode 157's, March 3rd, 2016:

    Several confirmations of leaks Chainclaw posted on TFW2005.

    1. The Voyager Laser Prime, which is the figure Clainclaw described as Star Convoy, it will have two heads.
    2. Voyager Megatron, Transmissions has only seen robot mode, which has tank kibble, Chainclaw said it has a jet mode, but Transmissions said that a jet isn't obvious to them. The sticker sheet has triangle stickers that might be for wings. Not sure.
    3. Voyager Alpha Trion, Chainclaw said it's a wolf, but Transmissions thinks it's a lion. It does had a horn on the beast mode head.
    4. Leader "Powermaster Prime" has a blue repaint. Called Magnus Prime/Super Ginrai.
    5. Voyager Tidal Wave, Triple Changer turns into an aircraft carrier and jet. No confirmation on a Broadside repaint, but it makes sense with it's modes.
    6. Decepticon Clones (Pounce/Wingspan) and Autobot Clones (Fastlane/Cloudraker) are getting figures.
    7. They cannot confirm anything about Predaking from Chainclaw's rumors.
    8. Hasbro is releasing toys in lines called the "Strength Set" and "Speed Set".
    9. Deluxe Iron Apex - had a place holder picture of the Apex Bomber.
    10 Titan Master Powerhouse, a diecast figure, an exclusive somewhere. Not sure who the character is.
    11. Nautica coming.

    --

    4/8/2016 - Episode 164
    1. There will be a re-release of Armada Unicron, possibly in the Platinum line, possibly with the G1 head remold, with an inflated price.

    --

    Updated for episode 166, 4/21/2016

    1. Titans Return Deluxe Krok, recolor of Skullsmasher
    2. Titans Return Deluxe Quake, recolor of Hardhead.
    3. Titans Return Deluxe Kup. New mold.
    4. Titans Return Deluxe Topspin. Speculation that there could be a Twin Twist remold.

    Additionally there is speculation coming out of BotCon 2016 (not from their usual leak source), Don Ferguson asked if we will get a Headmaster Arcee at the Hasbro panel, and was told he would be very happy in 2017. Speculation from the TransMissions team is that Blurr or Chromedome could be recolored into Arcee.

    --

    Update 4-28-2016

    1. Titans Return Legends Chase based on the previously announced Bumblebee mold.

    5. Titans Return Leader Quickswitch. Recolor of Sixshot with new head.
    6. Titans Return Deluxe Nautica. Remold of Blurr with shoulder fans.

    Ditto. If it's time for pmop to get an upgrade, then his buddy deserves one too.

    Basically guys if we see this in IDW then hasbro will make it. Or it will appear in the comics because hasbro are doing it.

    These days the comics are the best indication of whats ahead in the toyline. Sadly.

    I hope Roller* is the Headmaster just like the third concept of Powermaster Prime.

    [​IMG]



    *Roller, as in his Roller drone, not the character from IDW named Roller.

    Other than the PMOP rumor the rest of these are not exactly groundbreaking given Hasbro's past use of Blaster/Soundwave molds and that the first of the remodelled cassette transformers (Buzzsaw) was shown at Botcon and we got Ravage from that database listing.

    Powermaster Prime could be great.............. or terrible.

    If he is a Magnus remold I hope his trailer is completely closed in like his old G1,G2 self because Magnus' trailer is quite iconic to the character.

    Magnus and Optimus were probably designed at the same time, but they held back the Optimus version so it didn't compete with the CW Voyager toy.

    I bet there will be a way to fold the wheels back to get something cleaner.

    Not surprised about Soundwave since Blaster was a good indication of Soundwave being remolded from him but PM Optimus Prime is great. :)  Interesting to hear about him being a heavy remold of CW UM so I hope it makes him look and feel different from UM as much as possible.

    There's a good chance for this, since lately Optimus has had Roller bundled with him a few times now.

    On the one hand, we are apparently finally getting an update of Powermaster Prime. On the other, I was hoping it would be a bit bigger than the current Leader-class.

    Now then, what about Rodimus Prime?

    Also, was there mention of Blaster and Soundwave's class-size?

    We heard the Headmasters are all little versions of their main robots. I'd want the Headmaster to turn into a little Optimus, the Powermaster to turn into Hi-Q/Ginrai, and the Targetmaster to turn into Roller.
