    TR Tidal Wave has been heavily rumoured by reliable sources and I think at this point it's safe to say it will be a remold of the upcoming Voyager Broadside (itself a crazy remold of Alpha Trion.)

    So the aircraft carrier is a sure thing, but do you think that perhaps Hasbro might go the extra mile and somehow retool the third mode into Tidal Wave's contemporary whale mode from SotW?

    I think that would be bitchin, and probably convince me to buy at least two copies of the toy. It's also certainly possible, given the crazy retooling skills Hasbro has displayed lately, but only time will tell if it happens.

    For a character like Tidal Wave it's also admittedly unlikely compared to a cheap and easy headswap, but I'd love to be surprised.

    Thoughts?

    No. Just a straight up repaint of Broadside with a new face.

    Sure! - just crank up your fan-mode skills and your imagination.

    Hey, if TR Sixshot has a Submarine mode I guess anything is possible!

    You're so damn cheeky I can't even hate you.

    Off topic, that "submarine" mode has gotta be Hasbro's most amusing hat-trick in a very long time.

    I want Ramjet to have a jet mode. I dont care if Ramjet doesn't ride in a cockpit or gun, just be a jet that turns into a head that turns into a robot.

    I would totally be up for a Whale version! It'll never happen though. Maybe some 3rd party company will make some add on parts for a larf.

    I could see Alpha Trion's lion being retooled into a whale.

    I doubt it. Hasbro hates Organic Beast modes right now.

    No way, Hasbro's will blow. If MMC does it, that would be awesome. They have been making great IDW figures.

    It has organic looking hair, so it's at least technorganic.

    I'd be OK with a techno-organic whale.
