    what are the chances of the fort max. rumor simply being a reissue like they recently did with trypticon?

    everyone hoped for a new updated trypticon, like they did with metro, and it ended up being a reissue... will HasTak really assume a gen. metro version will outsell a reissue G1 design?

    you decide...

    Blaster(then Soundwave) as leaders...eh. I can take it or leave it. More Voyager Headmasters, specifically an IDW Chromedome would get my motor running. Hopefully those deluxes will also be IDW inspired. This makes the end waves of Combiner Wars not suck so bad.

    One of the first things known about Titan Wars was a line drawing showing what certainly looked a lot like Fort Max remolded from Metroplex.

    Yup, a retooled Metroplex is what the drawings showed.

    Anyone think "86 movie character deluxes with cybertronian alt modes" might mean deluxe IDW Rodimus & Cyclonus?

    Anyone here think Hasbro should release Brainstorm again in this line to go with the other rumored headmasters that would be compatible with him? He didn't see much distribution at retail in Generations and only his second run had the issues with looseness and headmaster fixed.

    are you referring to the top pic on that thread that seems to have tank treads behind the shoulders?

    also, that astrotraIN... I'm all IN! :thumb  - looks like great proportions in bot mode - can't wait for the pics to leak for the other 2 modes.

    please, please, please let the
    be based on the OG movie designs (but brought forth in much better quality and accuracy then the pretty terribly ~ Kup aside ~ 86 toys) and not the current terrible IDW designs. I really don't want 1 horned (flying purple people eater) skull-faced Cyclonus or Rod-MegaPointyNess-imus.

    ...An awesomly executed G1 Rodimus Prime would be my ultimate want...

    I'm still kinda sceptical of this info, but a new Deluxe Rodimus would be great. There's a gap in my MTMTE shelf that needs filling by a non-hideous Deluxe Rodimus.

    I could see Brainstorm being reissued with a briefcase and maybe even slight paint apps OR being retooled into Mindwipe.

    When you're hungry and bored, the best solution is to bring your pmop to ihop. Anyone else hope they make an mppmop just for the stupid name?

    I hope PMOP looks cool. Still have the original. I buy the new one if he looks good enough to say "scrap the old G1 toy", although I won't do that. I have no need for the Apex Armor. Don't like the look.

    And please NO LEADER versions of Rodimus and Galvatron. They need to be Voyager. They would look totally out of place if they were so gargantuan. Especially if PMOP is a leader class. He, like Ultra Magnus, has to be bigger than them.

    Which 1986 movie robots? There were a few, and nearly all have had releases in Generations.

    My interest in the TW line is dwindling. I have no love for Headmasters, a leader Blaster seems like overkill, and I'm not keen on the '86 cast.
    Although, I'm thinking the Takara Groove will be remolded as Wrek-Gar.

    And yeah, Beast Wars again gets no love.
    Typical.

    Examples being Blurr, Kup, Hot Rod, Cyclonus, Scourge.

    You know, those guys.

    So these are all Voyagers and Leader Class figures, what will become of the deluxe class for this series?

    That's pretty damn impressive.

    I have a feeling no Chromedome in the near future, I just can't see him as a voyager.

    They did not say which ones, but they would probably be the same ones in Generations, but with movie accurate alternate modes. Right now only Arcee and Cyclonus got movie accurate alt modes.

    So the Deluxe line will supposedly be used for yet more redoes of G1 characters that have already been done? Likely to get them to look as close to the 80s style as possible, like with Blaster.

    Wake me when there's word on anything that won't look bland and generic.

    I wonder if we could get new Sharkticons and Gatorcons to fill out the villain side of the movie deluxes (along with Scourge). There aren't many options for the bad guys since Cyclonus probably won't get redone a third time and Hasbro might have a revolt on their hands if they try and slip us another deluxe Galvatron.
