    Yes, please! I love them even though I forget which one is which. They surely are funny henchmen of Megatron.

    They are TM2 toy repaints too. Hasbro has done 2 TM2 so far. Would be great to get the trio and Sky-Byte with a release of Stinkbomb, Nightglider, Cybershark and spittor not far behind.
    If we get a Diver that means we could get a spittor 2-pack. That is the perfect timeline.

    Icing on the cake would be ROTB concept art spittor

    I think if we're talking about redoing the whole RID cast, Prime and Magnus are the only two that I feel needed to be done at Haslab, especially due to repaint options.

    Megatron - could definitely work as a commander, it more or less an incredibly posable figure with very little in terms of dedicated transformation options, almost required to get redone as Galvatron

    Skybyte - could either be done as a Leader or a Voyager in my mind, but would hope for a Legacy Inferno amount of bulk if Voyager, obvious repaint into Cybershark

    Predacon Goon Squad - Deluxes, let them match the brothers in size

    Scourge - Already done, at best could be redone with better colours

    Ruination - either just flat rerelease the UW one, or wait to see how they do the next Bruticus. Preferably UW to maintain the scramble functionality

    Spychangers - while they'd be good at core, I feel like to keep them in vehicle mode scale, to better match Towline, and to open the door for repainting as many of them as possible from current figures, they should be deluxe

    Build Team - I could see this working as a Titan set, but less than Team Bullet Train. Ideally Wedge as a smaller deluxe, Hightower and Heavy Load as larger Deluxes, and Grimlock as a well engineered but smaller Voyager, making him line up with the other build Team members

    Bullet trains - I could see this either working as a Titan set, or a commander and two leaders

    With the previous haslabs, I wonder if hand megatron will be a haslab too to account for the size and engineering? I really don't think they'd make the megatron that goes with the optimus as a normal commander class release while fire convoy will be stuck as a haslab

    Looks like we’re almost at the Super God Sword.

    It always made me kinda of scratch my head why they didn't name him J-Six. You have J-Four and J-Five...

    So fully-articulated Hot Wheels? Just toy homages? What about the Spychangers from the anime?

    Seems about right. I pulled them out and compared to to Legacy united Tasmania Kid, the original toys were larger than Core Class too. At deluxe they might also have some engineering budget to improve a few things. Nightscream with posable wings would be neat, and maybe the big gap in Gaskunk's beast mode stomach could have something covering it.
    Sky-Byte got a voyager in Thrilling 30, so I think he'd be a safe bet there. I don't think he'd be big enough for leader anyways, and unless they do something like an homage to one his disguises, he doesn't have the accessories to pad it out.

    A Sky-Byte with a shark mode that can be articulated a bit would be amazing.

    I'd pay leader price for an articulated shark mode, and I rarely pay full price. :lol

    Now imagine if sky-byte had an accessory that was a haiku to his late voice actor

    Yes. I would buy any figure at a higher price point if it gives the articulation, paint and engineering necessary to make it a great figure.

    Well to pretty good articulated non-brick beast modes are always worth that.

    Matrix blade !!!
    I knew it would hit but now I’m hyped as hell. Idrc if it hits nothing else. I’d like the stands but won’t be upset if we don’t get it. I mean we most likely will, but still.

    Though I am curious if there’s any more tiers so I do hope it does good.
