    I would prefer if they made Dinobots after this line is finished.

    Bear in mind that with Doublecross, there's at least one Deluxe Class Monsterbot on the way, which is already going to be a Titan Master/Headmaster. I reckon, particularly if the other two get remade, there might be enough molds to retool into at least one or two of the Decepticon Headmaster Juniors, even if another original figure's needed to make up the difference; at a glance the two teams have some stylistic features in common.

    Edit: Of course right after writing that I remembered to check the Transmissions Podcast Leaks thread, and it seems that TR Weirdwolf, Skullcrusher and Mindwipe all currently lack any obvious retools on those lists. One or two of those molds might contribute to the handful of characters mentioned above.

    If we get new combiners I want them to be in a larger scale maybe Voyager like Devastator but with only 5 members not necessarily as tall as Devy I think he should still be the tallest but maybe 13"-16".

    Then we'd essentially get a combiner that's essentially FOC Bruticus but taller.

    So...I'm thinking if they do Dinobots Grimlock's going to be Voyager and the rest are Deluxe. Its not cost effective to make them all Voyagers.

    An I right in thinking the Con is now over in China? I certainly can't see there being anymore big announcements (cough MP cough).

    True, though I think Sludge could be a voyager figure too. But the others should certainly be deluxe figures.

    No, they should be Titans, the minibots should be Leaderclass and combiner members should be humansized and combine into a gestalt the size of a bungalow.

    I agree, I'm definitely excited at the posibility. I just felt the first link made it seem like an official announcement. Semantics.

    With this possibility, we need a dedicated Beast Combiners discussion thread (if we don't already have one) to discuss what we'd like to see. And given the way the figures are designed today, also speculate about what remolds can be made from our selections.

    Not a dedicated thread (which I think is unnecessary as it'll divide the conversation) but here's where all of the discussion is http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...012929-combiner-wars-appreciation-thread.html

    I am looking forward to abominus and the dinobots. Especially the Dinobots, they were my favorite growing up as well

    Megs check, Kickback check, Octane.... ? guess I will have to wait this one out.
    Hasbro is getting notoriously lazy. Straight up repaints with a new face? I have both CW Motormaster and Prime "white and regular", they at least totally went the extra mile in terms of molding and coloring.
    But looking at Astrotrain/Sentinel Prime I get the idea its now straight up repaints.
    For deluxes I get it but this is Voyagers. You pay the extra buck for a descent size figure. I am not gonna buy (p)repaints that make no sense.
    Prime never was a tanker plane, and Sentinel prime no triple changer either. This is laziness.
    The Apha Trion is great. Acquired taste but I get it. Looks nice.
    I suspect they want to make back money off the single released headmaster deluxes since they are mostly Single use molds. Especially the Decepticons. But this is getting ridiculous.

    Oh btw I didn't read all the comments but I am putting money on it that Megs is actually a (p)repaint for Blitzwing. Seems we will get a new version then.
