    I want a detailed armada megatron! Tankor might be interesting though.

    Well it's not unheard of for a BB mold. In the Prime line we had RID Bee, RID Hotshot and then a redeco of RID Bee all in a relatively close time frame. Seeing that custom I'd be perfectly fine with it as long as they don't cheap out on the plastic like they did with BB. That sort of see through yellow is rather worrisome to look at.

    I don't want to get my hopes up just yet. If rattrap truly is in the works I will buy him no questions. Seeing what was done for Rhinox and Waspinator gives me faith that they won't screw up like they did Uni 2.0 Cheetor.

    A BM Rattrap is an instant pass for me.

    W00t for Crosscut, unless somehow he's the hapless flat-head Decepticon guy, because he's one of the rare Generations toys I can skip without question! :) 

    Tankor, seems more likely to be the Beast Machines guy, which is AWESOME, but "Tankor" also is pre-established in IDW as Octane. I disliked the original Universe Tankor quite intensely, so I wouldn't turn my nose up at a re-do.

    Nightbeat is amazing. I hope he isn't a Headmaster, I feel like at a Deluxe scale that will just ruin the headsculpt, and his head gimmick never shows up in fiction.

    Obviously Rattrap is all the win.

    Rattrap and Nightbeat were already predicted by some, so glad to see they might be in the works. Crosscut is a probable pass for me. Between Sandstorm, Hoist, and possibly Doubledealer, I don't want too spend money on another retool. Tankor intrigues me. I think we saw him in the background of the IDW comics so it's possible he might be the BM guy. I hope so.

    I bet Rattrap is likely since we got Waspinator and Rhinox.

    I keep seeing the wishlist for Tankor, but personally I'm hoping that Tankor is Octane. They retooled/repainted Springer and brought back an obscure Autobot triple changer in Sandstorm that turned out to be really popular. I'm not sure how Blitzwing's tank mode could translate into a refueling tanker, but jet to plane shouldn't be too hard and it would balance out the triple changer line. An easy purchase for me.

    Very intriguing. I'm looking forward to that Tankor, assuming that its Beast Machines Tankor. I just bought a $40 Deluxe Octane, so this better not be a reissue. I hope that that Rattrap is the pre-transmetal one. If this is legitimate in the long wrong, this will be awesome.

    I hope not because these listings are for deluxes.. and if they keep making triple changers, I'd like them to stick with Voyager.

    Octane/Tankor already has his 2008 Universe iteration...this is more than likely the Beast Machines tank.

    Rattrap would be a nice addition to waspinator and rhinox, nightbeat as a headmaster would be cool, and I don't really know about the other two. I just know that they are gonna be in idw (cause we can pretty much tell whos gonna be in idw based on these 30th anniversary guys!).

    Hmmmm a headless cybertronian on a planet full of micromasters and a mad scientist? sounds like an excuse to work in a headmaster resurrection of Nightbeat to me.

    I'll have a tequila then sir. Anejo, from a chilled bottle

    perhaps one could reverse this logic and hope we get dai Atlas and Star Saber soon?

    The mad scientist was busy being killed over and over and would have had no opportunity to do anything, and the Micromasters were busy building their civilization then marching to their deaths.

    Other way around, Roche designed Sandstorm first in 2010 and Springer was derived from that
