    Since Starscream is a given in this line, do you think we'll at least get Skywarp and Thundercracker ?(the Cybertronian modes would work for webcomicers who need pre-Earth modes)

    I'm not sure if Starscream himself is even getting a toy, but I really hope so. Generations needs to be filled out with some stuff, and WFC seems like a good place to get designs.

    I just hope we get more than four.

    It would be wonderful if over the course of a few years, we eventually get everyone from the game's cast list and possibly repaints too.

    Hasbro will do two standard releases, then an exclusive, and finally the other three in a Botcon set. :)

    And then we will have to wait for the altered Japan exclusive if we missed the convention figures or wait even longer for the altered American mass-market releases.

    God I hope that isn't the case again.

    But what do I care? I already have my 2007 Primus package Botcon boxed set with attendee stealth Mirage figure!:tongue:

    Starscream isn't even announced yet. So I suppose we should start speculating then.

    The 3 Coneheads are not known to even be in this game. I think we're lucky to have gotten Skywarp & Thundercracker in this game.

    With that said, I really hope they do make the 3 of them.

    I can see repainted seekers being released as store exclusives, but not a whole new mold. The only new-mold TFs that were released as store exclusives in the US that I can think of are Animated Arcee and Cyb. Mode Ratchet (and hopefully a few more upcoming), but those molds were already made.

    You think Skywarp and Thundercracker will be new mold toys? You're forgetting your War Within.

    I could see some repaints if Starscream is made. Gotta make money from the repaints. After all, I want an Ultra Magnus repaint.

    We haven't seen enough of Skywarp and Thundercracker (as in nothing outside of maybe some small shots of them in jet mode) to know whether they are not just Starscream in different colors. I'm hoping they are, as that would mean they are likelier to get figures.

    Other new molds that were store exclusives were Air Attack Optimus Primal, Megabolt Megatron, Big Convoy (new to the US), Legends Devastator (new to the US) and Magmatron (new to the US). There's also the upcoming Animated Rodimus.

    The only time a store will get a new mold as an exclusive is if it's a figure made for Japan but not yet released in the US or a figure from a line that was cancelled (such as Animated and the Beast Machines were).

    They fit the criteria I mentioned above. Figures that were made from a canceled line.

    Perhaps I'm confused. What I meant was, at this point I thought we only had confirmed molds of Optimus Prime, Megatron and Bumblebee. Are SS, SW and TC supposed to be repaints of one of them? Or did I miss confirmation of more WFC toys? (If so, that's what I get for not keeping up with the news.) Or are you saying they are going to be repaints of the Titanium War Within seeker mold?

    ETA: Is the original poster saying that "it's a given" that there will be a Starscream toy because it's been confirmed officially, or because it's been confirmed officially that there will be more toys and it would be foolish not to have the seeker mold ([irony] and Hasbro has never done anything that any fan would consider "foolish" [/irony]), or are we just jumping to conclusions that there will be more toys?

    If I could pick 3 new molds for WfC I'd want a seeker, a Ironhide/Ratchet and a Shockwave.

    No, the four are the only known WFC toys so far. We're all just speculating here, if Starscream were made he'd be a new mold, not a repaint of Prime or anything.

    I hope not... WFC Screamer is an ugly design.

    If they make a Screamer, I have no doubt 'warp and Thundercracker will follow as repaints, even if they don't end up being totally game-accurate.
