    So, as i feel that WFC is about finishing the cast of 84/85 excluding combiner teams
    i feel that for this we will be getting:
    Autobots:
    Warpath deluxe
    Tracks deluxe
    Skids Deluxe
    Huffer Deluxe
    Gears Deluxe
    Cosmos Deluxe
    Brawn Deluxe
    Inferno Voyager
    Snarl Leader

    Decepticons:
    Shrapnel Deluxe
    Bombshell Deluxe
    Kickback Deluxe
    Blitzwing Leader/Voyager

    i dont think several figures may come out just yet in kingdom as they have nice figures already and may come 2022

    along with this for BW:
    Core Rattrap
    Deluxe Blackarachnia
    Deluxe Cheetor
    Deluxe Tarantulas
    Deluxe Tigatron
    Deluxe Scorponok
    Deluxe Terrorsaur
    Deluxe Airazor
    Voyager Optimus primal
    Voyager Silverbolt
    Voyager Inferno
    Voyager Rhinox
    Voyager Dinobot
    Leader BW Megatron

    Those i feel will be good for the line

    add in the 4-5 fossilizers and thats the line, some may not come at all as they may be less required
    this also fills the quota
    8 voyagers (2 G1 depending on if blitzwing is made a voyager or leader, 5 BW and a fossilizer)
    The deluxes can be interchangeable to fit with the 16 retail deluxes, and some may be retools like tigatron/cheetor for 2 packs
    and 4 leaders in the form of BW megatron, Snarl, Rodimus and potentially blitzwing depending on if he is a voyager or leader
    everything else is up to you to think of

    We should take bets: will this finally be the first officially released BW/BM Blackarachnia figure to be shorter than Silverbolt, or will this continue the trend of keeping Silverbolt at motorboating height compared to his beloved?

    Would you be willing to go more into detail or would this be better for PMs?

    If I remember right, the old Generations deluxe spelled Kapow in that 1337 speak, and you said he ain't core. Deluxe confirmed?

    Thanks for those scrumptious tips!
    Do you have a lead on other bots of his original cohorts being in Kingdom or is this Blamo Kablooey mostly random?

    Hi there not sure sorry, just seen a 3D render for retailer previews.

    Someone on another thread made a good point about how pulling the first wave of ER into Siege is probably the root cause of this. (Edit: So wave 1 of ER was actually wave 2, and wave 3 is wave 4)

    There are some more deluxe minibots on the way. :)

    Honestly, I dislike Minibots being small. There's no reason Powerglide shouldn't be seeker sized.

    Btw Apollux, can you give any specific word on Powerglide? I only question it because his CW figure was already pretty good

    This is fantastic news! Come on Cosmos & Pipes!

    I had originally thought that the plan with WFC was to give us definitive versions of the cartoon cast; I was a bit thrown off with BW being added in, but if they are redoing the minibots there is still a very good chance of us getting them. What a fun time for fans.

    Unless you're a bayverse fan. Then apparently all you do is whine about how Hasbro is making more product that sells that isn't movie style.

    Something else to (maybe) consider when guessing slots is Hasbro doesn't seem to be afraid of putting entire partials out as exclusives or in sublines.

    Netflix Bumblebee, Elita, and Soundwave all have significant tool changes from their mainline predecessors, so maybe Cheetor is relegated to JUST the Netflix line like Bee is so far and that frees up another Deluxe slot in Kingdom for *your character of choice here*.

    That's my fear. A main show character unavailable to most fans, especially globally, because of Walmart's inability to get stock or to deliver orders.

    You dont like minibots being small? No reason they cant be big? Well no offense but them being minibots is the reason plus their appearance in The Transformers, granted all of the characters mass shift especially for alt modes, their alt modes are often larger, also some characters change height depending on who they are standing next to, check the pic below. If you want a bigger powerglide, there are a few bigger figures that are older. I understand personal preference but you have to realize when the lines features conflict with your preferences and be willing to accept that or buy a different line etc. Me personally, I prefer my minibots mini and all around a similar scale, doesn't have to be perfect.

    Kingdom being in WFC means they will likely continue to follow scale, one that doesn't include animation errors, made up of the proper scale or close enough to it etc

    Going through the thread, it's a bummer to see things like the loss of Micromasters and no ER Wave 4 being planned. That being said...

    Speculation about how they'll be handled aside, adding the Minibots to a line that's already blending the remainder of the G1 S2 Autobots with the Beast Wars S1 cast is going to make all of those scale discussions worse, isn't it?

    Powerglide is one of my favorite characters so if we get him, Galvatron, and the Beast Wars cast...this may just end up being my favorite line ever!

    A majority of the PWT Minibots were G1 style and near perfect, for me, we just need Cosmos, Gears, Huffer, Pipes, Warpath is semi hard confirmed
