    Which also puts them as rumors, for now.


    Personally, my speculation is that the next wave of the Walmart subline this year will be based around the Tournement for control of the Beast Planet. I speculate it will include Pathfinder, Transmetal Tigatron, a repaint of Crankcase, Fractyl or Laserbeak, Universe Primal, Paralyzed(white Waspinator) Antagony, Cryotek, and the G2 Grimlock we know is a part of a large subline, which I assume to be this.

    Yeah, it will probably be a big problem,but it will definitely bring many interesting fan modes

    I'm totally down for all those repaints if they fixed all the QC issues Starscream had. I actually kind of want a more toon accurate redeco specifically to fix all the QC issues the original had, plus giving him the minicon port would be a great bonus.

    As for Skyquake, we know Dreadwing is the final Legacy Evo leader after Armada Megatron, and it seems very likely that we're gonna get a G1 Skyquake as well based off how they're already advertising the predator gimmick with Needlenose, and that's not even going into the obvious visual similarities.

    Oh yeah that head looks really nice.

    Yeah This is how you do pretenders when you can’t give us the full gimmick. I’d much rather have the inner bot if I must choose . At least one version of the character is cartoon accurate . Preorders four . I skipped Iguanus and skullgin as I’m not a fan of that meshing of outer and inner looks

    We all know oversizing these figures are gonna happen eventually but I have a question for all of you. If you could change one thing to the legacy volcanicus when it\'s oversized what would you change.

    Okay! Time for some thoughts!
    Cores!
    Grimlock: Dino mode isn't... bad. Certainly not lovely, but decent. Robot mode is certainly Grimlock. Leg mode isn't the best, but I hope thats mistransformed. I imagine it is.
    Thundercracker: Ayyye! Another Seeker! Not much to say. Glad for the null rays!
    Nemesis Prime: Oh, sh*t! Looks freaking amazing. Wasn't gonna grab it, but now I am. Truck mode is cool. Also pretty sure the truck mode art is Earthrise Prime...
    Deluxes!
    Shrapnel: Ooh! Nice! Imo, but of a downgrade from Kickback, but it still looks great. 3 guns?? Damn! Bug mode is certainly a robot disguising itself as a bug, thats for sure.
    Animated Prowl: I don't have much to say about this, good mix of G1 and Animated!
    Crosscut: Silver. Skids. Thats all to say.
    Crossbar: Day of the crosses, ey? Looks pretty good! I won't be buying it (don't wanna be bullied by my brain to buy all of them) but certainly looks nice!
    Metalhawk: Looks good! Like what I see!
    Twincast: REWINDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
    Skyquake: Hey, that guy we saw!
    Anyways getting Grimlock, Scourge, Prowl, Metalhawk, Twincast, and Skyquake. Very nice stream! Excited for February and March.

    So I've been wanting to say this during the panel, but was really busy with work. So now, Transformers Has Pipeline reveals. Here it was only Star Wars that did that. Yet there is a Star Wars panel tomorrow. Aside of what we know from the pipeline back then I can't wait to see what they have for pipeline tomorrow.

    Why did they choose weapon storage as the Evo-Fusion gimmick when he has a spring-loaded opening chest that his cassette partner can fit inside?

    They knew retroactively assigning such a dumb gimmick to him would be dumb n so they made a joke of it. I love it.

    Not having an Armada Prime to go with the Armada Megs is going to mess with my OCD

    Armada Optimus has already been confirmed as the Commander in the Legacy: Evolution line this year. Megatron will be a leader class figure in wave 3.


    There will also be a Studio Series 86 Commander Ultra Magnus this year as well, just incase you see people talking about that and get confused thinking there is only 1 this year like previous years.

    They might as well have showed him mid-transformation and slapped “Evo Fusion” on that.

    Really excited for the upcoming stuff (wave 3) but Beachcomber is really gonna have to be something special cause the potp version is really good imo. Yeah the articulation is dated but it\'s still a good figure.

    I think the Evo-Fusion is just a marketing gimmick, and the design team is force to have it somewhere on their figure, but instead of adding unneccesary gimmicks that eat up the budget and comprimise the figure, they just slap it onto whatever the fuck. But, because Hasbro is a big company with an (out of touch) marketing team, they force them to bring it up every time they talk about the figure.


    It’s the monkey’s paw of having a closer level of conversation with the designers. They can talk more about the figures, but they also have to adhere to corperate speak and please marketing.
