    I hardly disagree that the voyagers are pretty small. There all average voyager height prime and megs are slightly over 7” and the rest seem to be a tad bit shorter or exactly 7”

    The rumored Magnus retool as Optimus as an Amazon exclusive.

    Star Saber retooled from Shockwave as the 3rd leader.

    Apeface and Snapdragon as some form of exclusive

    Takaratomy heavy retool of Super Ginrai as LG-EX Star Convoy.

    I think that Deluxe Barricade will be a bayverse movie homage (prowl retool) and not the G1 version (mirage retool) It would be weird to turn one random micromaster into a deluxe and not others.

    I think this also means that we won't see recolors of Prowl as smokescreen and blustreak, as 4 of one mold would be a bit much.

    Edit: On second thought, 2 police cars of the same mold would be a bit ... Redundant.

    Tough to tell. Could go either way I guess.

    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.
