    With that said, there have been OS KOs of the standard combiners, so a Titan-sized version might happen eventually (and would probably be cheaper than TFC Poseidon)...

    If HasTak does another Titan combiner, I wonder who it would be? Maybe Monstructor? Maybe Raiden? (I would think Titan Class/Voyager Class would be more fitting for TRAINS.)

    I
    IM dreaming when I say this of course, but Monstructor as a Titan size figure could work, serving as a common gestalt, but with Shells... Lol.. This is truly a wishlist item, but hey, ten years ago, everything that's happening now was all wishlist items that others told us to shut up about because they would never happen... But look at us now... Its absolutely grande.

    I wonder if that could happen : a standard sized combiner with shells at titan class price point.
    It's a very good idea.
    Would be very cool if they managed that.

    Ikr! Some would scoff at the mere notion, but I dare any of us to dismiss any idea/want at this point.. Hasbro, TT have shown us to literally expect the absolute unexpected..

    I'm rooting for Raiden all the way. Big voyager trains. In my head canon, Raiden is the counterpart to Devastator - one team to transport materials and one team to build.

    In the Japanese HM series, Raiden's main adversary was Predaking..

    True, Japan didn't use Skylynx in the show, they replaced him with Raiden, I think, pretty sure any way, one transport for another.... Idk how I feel about a Titan Raiden, I'd rather have six deluxes, or four and two sort of voyager but not really a size we see on the shelves.. Idk, but now Don't get me, I'd pounce at any release of the Trainbots. .

    Yeah, the G1 Sky Lynx toy was never released in Japan, since he was one of those toys licensed under contract from another manufacturer at the time, so outside the Sunbow-produced material, he was non-existent because Takara wasn't promoting him.

    It was only relatively recently that Japan got an official Sky Lynx (and Omega Supreme, in the Encore line) release, due to TakaraTomy buying out a number of defunct/floundering Japanese toy companies post-2000 and gaining full ownership of those toys/toolings in the process.

    It's not like you're entirely wrong. Takara never used Sky Lynx.

    Now IF they really do one...I hope they revisit Dinobots/Volcanicus really.

    Titan Class Predaking needs a good enemy to clash head on with. (And probably Devastator as well...)

    If not then gimme Titan Class...









    ... Skylynx.

    While Dinobots vs Predacons is definitely something I've thought of I feel that ideally it would be Raiden since he'd pair well with both Devastator (six member Diaclone bros) and Predaking (rivals in Headmasters). But Skyinx probably would make sense as well at that scale since he was meant to be huge (and his gimmick would be great at that size.)

    Ya know, thonkong about it, it makes a lot of sense for them to produce a Titan Skylynx , it seems like a perfect idea to actually give him a walking mechanism, lights ect... Hasbro really needs to give us a few Voyager/leader class bots with sounds and lights... Shockwave would have been perfect.. But I digress.... I'm still holding out for a Raiden, Lio Kaiser ( great example for a Titan, / prefer not though.. Lol.) Road Ceasar, LandCross ( what ever happened to the leaked list of bots that had him on it? , along side Snapdragon/Apeface too I do believe... That list was 90% accurate as far as what got released any way...

    Still kinda weird we haven't seen anything about that (possible) Super Megatron teaser, maybe its something they're saving to reveal at NYCC...

    I wonder if down the road they'll finish the core three Battlestars dudes since we're getting a Star Convoy! I feel it would be pretty easy to re-tool any of the leader jets from the prime wars trilogy into a Sky Garry, but that leaves the issue that is Grandus. I cant think of a single figure thats been released in recent history that could easily be re-tooled into a Grandus, except maybe Broadside, but then he would be super small compared to the other two. Hastak has made some figures before that have had little to no re-tool value, like CW Skylynx, it would just make my whole year if they decided to put out a generations version of Grandus, he's such a terrible design that it loops all the way around the scale and becomes kinda cool again.
