    I dunno, I kind of disagree on this. There is no reason that these characters would be roughly human-sized, so they wouldn't be in the Micromaster 2-packs. Warden's claim about scale has been backed up by every con reveal so far, so we have no reason to assume that there will be an out-of-scale figure in Siege.

    I'm editing the possibilities here, I think we can assume a few things.

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

    Micromasters (4 waves 11 char)
    Wave 1: Race Car, Battle, and Airstrike
    Wave 2: Spy Tapes, Rescue, Sports Car, Road
    Wave 3: Construction, Monster Truck,
    Wave 4: Air, Racetrack, or...
    - BuzzSaw/Ratbat
    - Rumble/Frenzy

    Deluxe (4 waves 14 char)
    Wave 1: Sideswipe, Hound, Cog, Flywheels
    Wave 2: Chromia, Prowl, Ironhide, Brunt
    Wave 3: Red Alert, Sixgun, Reflector
    Wave 4: Impactor, Mirage, Barricade
    What if these are exclusive?


    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: Starsaber, or Galaxy Force OP, or Jetfire or StarConvoy
    I'm going to be bold and not go with the Galaxy Force guess. We're two for two for PotP 'evoloution' style leaders in Siege. I think we may still see Starsaber. Just maybe not until wave 3. If he was wave 2 I'd have expected to see something by now.

    I always have to add some Leader Speculation

    Titan: Omega Supreme with Countdown

    Walgreens exclusive: Ratchet

    Amazon exclusive: Skywarp

    SDCC Exclusive: Delta Magnus

    Special editions: Bluestreak and Wheejack (fingers crossed) we need 2 more waves honestly

    There go my hopes for Bluestreak, Smokescreen and Sunstreaker to appear in Siege.

    I would love that. I have half of the Sixwing team, which are my only G1 type figures.

    What happened to a Pointblank retool of Counterpunch?

    it was never more than a rumor, actually i wouldnt even give it that much, the figure just bears a striking resemblance to pointblank. though i wouldnt be surprised to see in happen down the road

    Happy to see almost everything revealed, it was stressing me out not knowing how to set my budget ha ha. I am still hoping to see more cassettes revealed (c'mon Ratbat), & I am wishfully thinking for a Soundblaster exclusive. Also would be great if we got a Wingthing battlemaster, giving us a complete Soundwave!

    I'm confused as to why those three would be exclusives. We've seen Optimal Optimus win the vote for PoTP and he's been released in the toyline as a non-exclusive. I don't see how that would change. I also don't think Hasbro would make a whole wave exclusives.

    for impactor and mirage, their links specifically call them fan vote figures. all of the previous fan vote figures except for victorion were part of normal waves. these two dont look to be in a normal wave, hence the belief that they may be amazon exclusives. no idea why someone would think barricade is an exclusive as his link is labeled similarly to the other deluxes

    Ah, I see. So would it mean we still have two open slots or no?

    IF they are exclusives i believe that would leave two more spots open, but they may not be exclusives. it really could go either way.

    Well, the Exclusive Throne of the Primes version could be considered as representing the Fan Vote win more than the mainline release as it came with a card declaring Primal's Primacy, so the question is does that mean it's more likely we'll see mainline AND separate Special Edition versions for Mirage & Impactor or just the Special Editions and two more mainline mystery Deluxes, I'm hoping it's the latter as two versions of them so close back to back seems a bit daft.

    The reason why I’m not worried about us getting remolds and repaints is the fact that unlike previous trilogy you can give us a mold in the second line unlike with Prime wars you weren’t gonna give us a combiner wars mold in titans return. So the rest of the seekers, sunsteaker, and bluestreak/smokescreen are all safe

    I'm hanging onto this hope too, even though my gut is telling me that each 'chapter' is going to have a theme that might make it awkward to fit some of the remaining '84 cast into. Happy to admit my gut has been wrong many times in the past.

    A bit off topic but man potp was a mess. What was ever the point of Starscream, elita 1 and inferno it’s almost like they were all just peg warmers till we got to this line. And I’m so happy that these figures look amazing and most likely will be

    To be fair I felt the same way about some of the CW Voyagers like Cyclonus, Scattershot, and Battlecore Optimus. I liked Elita-1, but man I was frustrated there were only two limbs. Starscream, I cannot wait to replace and I didn't even get Inferno. Siege is definitely a big improvement (though I prefer Legends and Pime Masters to Micromaster and Battlemasters).
