    I like seeing more and more Beast Wars names showing up. I hope it is original Rattrap, that is the dude that started my collecting days.

    Any chance we can get something like the SKU entries or somesuch?

    A deluxe wave of Nightbeat, Rattrap and Tankor sounds like a dream. ESPECIALLY D IT'S BEAST MACHINES TANKOR. Like, I will buy a ton of him if that's true.

    If Nightbeat is real it means he's probably in the Dark Cybertron comics. So it's pretty premeditated.

    This. If the upcoming rhinox is any indication, the engineers can now do a great job with a natural looking alt mode.

    These sound very plausible and awesome.

    Awesome!

    If it's what we assume it is, then Crosscut would go great with Timelines Road Rage/SG Tracks.

    Or Octane. Tankor is his name in the IDW comics. Really hoping for a BM Tankor though.

    It just occurred to me that even if these are real that could still be "Nightbee" for "Night-strike Bumblebee" or something similar.

    :( 

    -ZacWilliam, a headmaster Nightbeat alla the upcoming Scoop would be amazing but I don't want to get my hopes too high.

    Nightbeat makes sense seeing as he's in 2 of the current toy pack in comics.

    Seems plausible enough, each character is either a resuse, or COULD be re-used:
    Skids -> Crosscut (would've preferred that Flatline design)
    Nightbeat -> Minerva
    Tankor -> Universe Stockade
    Rattrap -> Packrat

    I'm pleased about Crosscut I always liked that character's Bio.
    But I can see why the mould wold be well suited to a Decepticon as it's so VERY heavily armed - and to be frank an ambassador tooled up for bear is as daft as Skids' is likewise over-armed.

    anyone think that the new Tankor may be a Warpath retool? wouldn't take that much...
    New head-duh
    replace hands with claws-huh, claws and a single mono eye, poor Tankor's an empurata
    retool turret assembly, big cannon on right shoulder, lose the missile pod on left, shorten/ditch center barrel
    and by simply rotating the legs on the thigh swivel one can simulate Tankor's reverse kneed legs. and the mold already has tread feets

    so far the thrilling 30 generations amaze me, we're getting the line that Generations was always meant to be, representing all eras of the franchise so far we have
    Early g1-Skids, Shrapnel, Trailbreaker, cosmos, hoist
    late g1-swerve, whirl, tailgate, doubledealer, scoop, possible nightbeat
    g2-dreadwing
    beast wars-rhinox, waspinator, possible rattrap
    beast machines-possible tankor
    rid-sadly no rep yet....
    armada-starscream, new minicon combiner
    energon-nothing yet :( 
    cybertron-nothing yet :( 
    animated-nothing yet D:

    I don't think the thigh swivel idea would be needed. Doesn't the bigger Tankor figure have normal legs?

    And(crazy idea here), but what if Crosscut is the Decepticon one?

    If these rumors are true, I might start buying mainline figures again, love me some Ratrap, plus Rhinox, and Waspy
