    Thanks, that would be great. These all seem plausible but it would be better to have something more concrete.

    Can't wait for that new Nightbeat! :D  Wonder if it would be a IDW BB repaint, RTS Jazz repaint, or a new mold entirely.

    Don't so much care about the other two (tho I'll probably still get them), but huzzah for Rattrap and Nightbeat!

    Agreed, i'd love to see a new Nightbeat that was a headmaster. hope this list is true. Crosscut as a Skids repaint could be cool too, as that mold looks like fun.

    see, here's the thing though, not everyone has every toy, and redoing old characters in new ways is FUN and EXCITING. I love my new Generations Hoist way more than the G1 Hoist I had years ago.

    and there probably will be a new cartoon and toyline for the 30th anniversary, but the nice thing about an anniversary is you can celebrate all the various things that've happened in the 30 years prior, just like Hasbro is doing...

    very cool that we're getting more BW figures, but I really would have preffered a new Terrorsaur before Waspinator or Rattrap.

    I'd certainly be game for a new Rattrap! Especially if his beast mode was the organic one as opposed to transmetal or robotic. Not that I wouldn't probably buy him regardless...but...I'd like an updated version of original Rattrap sooo much!

    Nightbe could unfortunately also be Night Bee lol. Although I do hope it is Nightbeat. He is one of my most memorable G1 figures. I do hope it is a retool of IDW Bee. The one in the radicons by Cheetimus Prime just rocks.

    Just dont get your ass fired over it. It is considered corporate info even when it is an inventory search. If your local security or your coworkers catch you on camera taking a pic the result for you may not be good. If all the info you gave is what you see on the telxon screen, the fanboys can wait as you are not providing anything new. The doubters will routinely doubt anything and dont need to be appeased. As for the dreamers, let them speculate as it is kind of fun in a way to guess on what is coming up next.

    I too think Nightbeat will be a re-use of the Bumblebee mold.

    For Tankor, I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that it will be an evil repaint of Voyager Rhinox. But I do hope I'm wrong.

    EDIT: Just realized that this thread is about Deluxes, so I am wrong. Yay!

    But don't we already have a repaint/remold of the Bumblebee figure named Goldfire? That would be kind of reusing the mold too soon.

    Though that custom is nice no doubt about it. :)

    That makes the most sense. Jhiaxus had a lot of time with Nightbeat's body on gorlam prime. Plus it seems head wounds aren't fatal to cybertronians.

    Assuming that we don't just get a flashback with him...
