    With this line, hopefully everything has equal sides. Just even amount of Autobots and even amount of Decepticons. No lines with all Autobots, please.

    ^ I hope that's what it comes out to. Zero complaints with that line up, I'd also greatly appreciate having the Lambo twins and main 3 Seekers together sooner than later.

    Reflector was confirmed to be wave 3 at nycc, I don't see Impactor and Mirage being amazon exclusives. The past fan vote winners have never been exclusive and always have been apart of the main line and I don't see Hasbro changing that, so going by the catz leak we know we are supposed to get 14 deluxes in the main line and we know what those 14 will most likely be.

    Deluxes:
    Wave 1
    Hound
    Skytread
    Cog
    Sideswipe

    Wave 2
    Ironhide
    Prowl
    Chromia
    Sixgun

    Wave 3
    Reflector (confirmed to be wave 3 at nycc by John Warden)
    Brunt (Product number comes right after reflectors so most likely wave 3)
    Red alert


    Wave 4
    Barricade
    Impactor
    Mirage

    (this is how I would break them up into waves)

    That put's us at 14/14 deluxes not including the walgreens exclusive ratchet.

    also voyager Starscream and Soundwave are confirmed to be wave 2 leaving Thundercracker and Springer to be split up in waves 3 and 4 if we are supposed to get at least 1 new figure for the voyager class in wave 4.

    Not sure how I feel about getting another Prowl without completing the trio... it may depend on how good the mold is, and even then I may just go with Barricade if he is indeed a Prowl retool.

    Its really kind of hard to hear but warden confirms Brunt for wave 2 even know he and reflector are close in product numbers and personally that makes sense on two breakdowns.

    Deluxe decepticons - 1 each wave

    SkyTread - W1
    Brunt - W2
    Refractor - W3
    Barricade - W4

    Deluxe Weaponizers

    Cog - Autobot
    Brunt - Decepticon
    Sixgun - Autobot

    A pattern release is better than spot releases of one here one there same could be said for prowl and barricade who are spaced out to avoid mold clogging.

    A Sunstreaker would be neat. But honestly, I'm not seeing it.
    Going by what we've seen so far, I'd say the possibility is pretty good. Reflector/Refraktor is a short Deluxe and Ironhide & Cog are tall Deluxes. G1 Ironhide is canonically as tall as G1 Starscream. The likelihood of Impactor being a decent size looks pretty likely IMO.
    Totally agreed. The G1 version of Barricade was a Micromaster, and not only are Micromasters featured in this line, Warden already said that each character would retain their personal gimmicks.

    Bluestreak would be fine, but I think having a race car with a big ole 38 on the side would be a bit weird... On Cyberton. Unless they kept the color scheme but ditched the decals

    I donno how I'd feel if this was in fact just a repaint of Prowl. I feel like if you want to actually bring the bad cop Decepticon concept over to a neo-G1 universe, then they should give him his own design...A unique head sculpt at the very least.

    It's listed as a Deluxe price point though.

    I don't like that. Magnus retool makes since but star saber would have to be his own mold and ginrai into star convoy wouldn't work. yet again takara somehow turned overlord into dai atlas so who knows

    well considering that smoky and blue streak are different vehicles from those two I think it could work

    I'm standing by my opinion that the second prime is gonna be star convoy or some mixture of the two

    well just like they've done with the other characters that traditonally would have human words on them they've written in cybertronian numberings instead
    800px-War-for-Cybertron-Siege-Micro-Master-Rescue-Patrol.jpg 1c84ef90c6f304bbf204763ac5f6df29.png
    and theres plenty of versions of the cybertronian numbering systems they can choose from

    Maybe we could get both the Micromaster Barricade AND the G1ified Bayverse Barricade in Siege? I mean, Hasbro does reliably have the Barricade name trademark, after all.

    Wouldn't that make the fiction side of things rather confusing?

    Wait, does this mean that the Micromasters are in Cybertronian modes instead of Earth modes?

    It's kinda hard to tell any more, what with all the fake vehicle models in the CHUG line and all.
    Eh, possibly. They seemed to have established guys with same names in the IDW comics like the two Tankors that made friends and the two Breakdowns(G1-style Stunticon & TF: Prime-style Velocitronian), and possibly more instances(I don't actively read the comics)

    There have been multiple figures with the same name in one line before. But I don't think we've ever identified them as separate characters up till (possibly) now.

    I wake up to find out about Barricade. I was not expecting that. Also, we have definitive confirmation that Impactor and Mirage are not a two pack.

    So assuming that the leak about the numbers was right (and it was right about everything else, so I've got little reason to doubt it), and we now know the full Deluxe line up...what does this mean for Wheeljack? WAs he really just a near random character instered into a background shot? I suppose he lost the vote so it's kind of appropriate he doesn't get a toy in this line. I'm holding onto some hope that a deluxe Wheeljack will show up somewhere, somehow!

    So the only mysteries left are the wave 4 - and possibly some wave 3 - Battlemasters and Micromasters, the other Leader Class figure, and whatever other 'exclusives' might be released.

    I realise I'm pinning a lot of hope on those exclusives. I'm going to have to make some serious peace with myself if we don't get Skywarp, Wheeljack, Sunstreaker, Bluestreak, and Bumblebee. They feel like such essential characters , as far as the narrative that's been set up. That said, I'm delighted with the left field choices like the Weaponisers and Barricade. All in all, it's a very strong line up and I'm looking forward to getting the Voyagers and Delxues (hopefully) next month.

    Edited to add an updated spec list...

    Battlemasters (4 waves 10 char)
    Wave 1: Firedrive, Lionizer, Blowpipe
    Wave 2: Caliburst, Aimless, Pteraxadon
    Wave 3: Smashdown, Haywire
    Wave 4: Fracas, Recoil

    Micromaster (4 waves 11 char)
    Wave 1: Race Car, Battle, and Airstrike Patrols
    Wave 2: Spy, and Rescue Patrols
    Wave 3: Sports Car and Off Road Patrols
    Wave 4: More cassettes and maybe some Autobots
    Ratbat and Frenzy
    Buzzsaw and Rumble
    Bumblebee and Huffer
    Rack and Ruin


    Deluxe (4 waves 14 char)
    Wave 1: Sideswipe, Hound, Cog, Skytread (Flywheels)
    Wave 2: Chromia, Prowl, Ironhide, Sixgun
    Wave 3: Red Alert, Brunt, Refraktor (Reflector)
    Wave 4: Impactor, Mirage, Barricade

    Voyager (4 waves 6 char)
    Wave 1: Optimus, Megatron
    Wave 2: Starscream, Soundwave
    Wave 3: Springer
    Wave 4: Thundercracker

    Leader (2 waves 3 char)
    Wave 1: Ultra Magnus, Shockwave
    Wave 3: Some Optimus recolour of Ultra Magnus
    It seems too obvious not to do. It's already got a Voyager class Optimus sitting inside it. I'd love Starsaber to be in this slot, but I'd be surprised if the R&D budget could accomodate a third original mold leader. It feels like the only real question is how much remolding might occur.


    Titan: Omega Supreme with Countdown

    Walgreens exclusive: Ratchet

    Amazon exclusive: Skywarp

    SDCC Exclusive: Delta Magnus

    Special editions: Bluestreak and Wheejack (fingers crossed)

    Ah but the MicroMasters aren't named and it's a pallette swap like Whisper and Storm Cloud. So we can have both Barricades.
