    By a wide margin, by my count. 380, whereas the second-highest (B) is only 173.

    One of my dream figures is a Voyaqer class Wrecker Hook with accurate sculpting and alt mode.

    Exactly.

    I wouldn't mind the characters getting larger "guzzler" figures after they get better properly-sized G1 accurate figures, but I gotta have them with their Micromaster gimmick first.

    If The Fallen ends up just being Armada Megatron with a different head, *hard pass*. This version of the character has not had a toy in 17 years, they can do better than that.

    If he was a heavy retool I'd be okay with it (as long as they changed the shoulder articulation) but if I where to guess he would be a new mold as that second repaint of the mold will be covered with Galvatron.

    Considering the fact that we already have a quick leader repaint (G2 Grimlock) in the roster, and the fact that it seems like he's the first leader of Prime, I think he's pretty much guaranteed to be a new mold.

    I think he'll be a new mold but that digibash of him as arm megs does look pretty good. It would push me to finally get the mold.

    I'm pretty optimistic and lenient to the 13 though. I have no emotional or nostalgic feelings towards them but think they are just cool. Let them be whatever design... Just cool.

    In a surprise twist, The Fallen will be retooled from/into SS86 Megatron.

    No, he was more cartoon accurate in combining, where as the other 3 groups combined in the cartoon the same way their CW toys did.

    If he is a retool, I’d rather have a Leader tank bot that already has mirror-image hands instead of 1 hand and 1 claw.

    There's a SS86 Megatron coming next year. Most of the time, G1 Megatron only gets recolored/remolded into other types of Megatron. I can see substantial remolding being given to him so there's a bit of extra tissue with "Megatronus" and another bot to add to Megatron's remold pile with The Fallen.

    I do kind of anticipate/expect a Bulkhead retool, but I think if that happens, it'll probably be over 50% new parts, just using the wheels/back frame nylon parts, maybe fists, biceps etc. I don't think they'd be so stingy as to reuse the boxy front etc, but as he'll be a voyager and does turn into a small six-wheel truck, I kind of can't see them not reusing those parts, especially since aside from the Amazon-exclusive minor repaint, Bulkhead hasn't been repainted/retooled yet.

    Honestly, Bulkhead just doesn't feel like a good mold to retool Heatwave into. Like, Animated Prime would better if you pushed the grill out, exposed the wheel, and added in the rest of the fire truck.
    However, if you're getting to the point where you need to retool the figure so heavily, wouldn't it make more sense to bite the bullet and make a new mold?
    Also you cannot convince me that Override gets a new mold in a Walmart sub-line but Heatwave doesn't.

    If he is, I’m going to be very happy. Waiting all this time for another G1 toy of The Fallen has finally paid off.

    Why are everyone talking Bulkhead, a 3 year old mold that turns into a military truck, as the most likely retool canditate for Heatwave, instead of Animated Prime, a by that time 1 year old mold that turns in to a firetruck?

    Wouldn't Bulkhead make more for Salvage from Rescue Bots or would they use Trashmaster?

    >Legacy Bulkhead
    >3 year old mold

    Let's be honest with ourselves, the "old mold" distinction isn't relevant anymore. If it's siege-onwards it's fair game, and in some circumstances they go back even farther than that

    From what I can see, and please remember that this is merely speculation at the moment, it’s the frame. The transformation seems to be the almost, if not exactly the same. To their credit, Hasbro did make almost all the pieces a unique mold, such as the wings.
