    I can be Spinister being ER, especially since Wheeljack was there too, but I doubt Crosshairs would have been an ER figure.

    Me personally, I hate the fact that Warpath, Powerglide, and Seaspray are the size of Bumblebee. I don't care about the other ones, but I wish those 3 would be upsized.

    There's no way Cheetor, who is the Bee/Hot Rod of BW, missed out on a mainline retail release.

    Crosshairs was more likely a Selects figure that got pulled in to the mainline.

    Bumblebee seems to be Netflix exclusive. The only other listing for the mold was Select Bugbite.

    I'm well aware of how they're presented in the series, but I don't like them in G1 either. The combiner limbs were roughly the same size but depicted as Datsun bro size. Blaster was a fucking huge toy and Soundwave sized in the series. No reason the minibots had to be mini in animation.

    There are no shortage of Bumblebees at retail, so Hasbro may not be worried about this one skipping. If anything Cheetor would be a candidate to get figures both in Netflix and Kingdom. Much like Windblade they're trying to establish him as a central figure across the brand.

    But Windblade has sat out of 3 Generations sublines, and her only figure of note in Cyberverse was a Warrior class early on in the line. She didn't even get a deluxe figure

    It would be adding insult to injury if it ends up happening to Cheetor of all characters, considering how much of a horrifying disgrace his last CHUG figure was.

    "We finally made a good CHUG Cheetor....but most of you can't have him, mwahahaha!"

    Bumblebee has been mainline absent for at least a year and then relegated to Netflix exclusive.

    Haven't heard anything on him unfortunately.

    Haha I never even thought about that good point.
    To me scale only matters when you have weird outliers like that massive weirdly coloured first attempt at generations Powerglide, or Predaking being a Titan etc.

    They might just figure they are giving us three opportunities to get the mold.
    Cheetor at Walmart
    Tigatron at retail
    Shadow Panther as the inevitable Select

    Ooo or throw Shadow Panther in an exclusive pack, then Night Prowler in Selects and I'd be super-satisfied.

    Welp good thing this toyline likes to adhere to the g1 cartoon.

    I understand wanting a larger warpath and powerglide but it's not gonna happen in this toyline due to its adherence to the g1 cartoon scale.

    ah ok to clarify, I'm saying that wfc toyline likes to adhere to g1 scale which means that minibots released in the trilogy will be smaller than carbots. Cliffjumper and Bumblebee are deluxe but they are also smaller than Carbot deluxes like wheeljack and sideswipe, adhering to their heights in the g1 cartoon.

    @Kaynowa wanted minibots like powerglide and warpath to be as tall as the carbots, which does not adhere to the g1 cartoon.
