    Also, I'm probably the millionth person to think of this, but now that Victorion has been revealed to have two helicopter limbs, I'm thinking that Vortex might be a new separate mold from Alpha Bravo. This one could be more of an attack chopper and designed to hold its propellers like a blade-shield. AB could then be redone into Blastoff, as even in his current state the nose of his altmode resembles a space shuttle.

    I'm excited about the potential for "Titan Wars" Even though my wallet isnt. I'd honestly be really surprised if Hasbro was completely abandoning the Combiner Wars line. It seems like overall it has been well received by its intended audience which has hopefully translated into to being lucrative for Hasbro. I'd be greatly disappointed if we don't get Computron, and only slightly less disappointed if we don't get a modern predaking or Abonminus out of it all. I'd like a Monstructor as well, but I kind of knew it was a stretch from the start.

    As far as what we've seen of the Titan Wars line art: Color me I'm interested. As much as like my 3rd party Warden, a legit Fort Max and more headmasters is exciting.

    If the implication of "wars" is true and we actually get more than one titan. then by all means yes: bring on Scorponok & Trypticon as well. And who knows? maybe this will mean we get a titan or leaderclass Overload as well.

    The potential is exciting.

    I'm so glad I picked up blackjack in march for a relatively cheap 20 bucks. Back then I was thinking that is too much for what he is. But now I'm glad I did.

    Here a comparison of the Fort Max pics to Metroplex. Obvious overlap in the feet and arm design.

    Hey roguesaint,seriously are you saying the comic sketch of Bruticus looks the same as CW Defensor,cause I just don't see it,for one the wheel as you point out right near Bruticus's head is totally in the wrong place compared to where it is on Defensor which is on his lower chest.So in my opinion I think either Onslaught is a new mold or a major major remold of Hotspot cause the aesthetics seem totally different,but I could be wrong tho,we will have to wait and see tomorrow morning or so.

    Hasbro isn't gonna make a new mold for a guy who already shares a lot of similarities with a previous guy especially when that version already has accommodated it's vehicle mode to look closer to Onslaughts vehicle mode.

    Rodimus Mike - all I am saying is that in my completely uninformed and speculative opinion (which mind you, counts for exactly nothing), is that there the photo's only fuel the hotspot retool theory...and I'd be happy to be completely wrong. I love new fresh molds. I just know that often hasbro like to recycle and get as much use out of a mold as possible.

    Hey roguesaint,after inspecting both the pics of Bruticus and Defensor you put up I do see the similarities,but what was throwing me off is the way Defensor is turned backwards in combine mode,if it was turned the way it is in the instructions then it would be spot-on with a few tweaks like the following.

    Doing away with those open crossbeams near the combiner head.
    The two cannons should be on the back of Bruticus.
    Onslaughts arms should be rotated up at the shoulders 90 degrees.
    The airplane drone is visible somewhat but I don't know how they would incorporate that into Onslaughts combiner mode,but maybe they will somehow.
    And from the pic of Bruticus it doesn't look like he has those neck flaps like Defensor has.

    I will be waiting for CW and TW news for in the morning. We'll definantly see the Masquerade set, and a RID Megatronus, Thunderhoof, Fracture, and Quilfire (All of these!!! Please!!!).
    I don't see how people think that Metroplex and Fortress Maximus are the same, because they're not.

    I'm 100% positive that Onslaught is a new mold.
