    At the very least RiD15 Windblade is still competent. Would still love a new one but we're not without a decent stand-in.

    Oh and who ever said it, I totally agree Skyfire was a not a good use of a Commander class spot, would have worked way better as a leader, also then would have been much closer to cartoon scale and generally didn't impress me as a toy.

    I think I'm gonna go watch some of Thew's stuff to cleanse my mind.

    It was, maybe still is, the largest thread ever. It was active like this thread and like this thread it was info, everyone talks about info, it gets dry and then things go off topic. In between you would have the same few arguments repeated over and over again. So, everything this is but happening now.

    Today was a good day. I had a barbecue chicken sandvich with a real-sugar Mexican Coca Cola, snagged a preorder for a HG NZ-666 Kshatriya Gunpla after I thought it sold out, and indirectly caused the leak of an entire new Combiner team.

    Probably not. My guess is that they would pull a Predaking and have the limb bots be the entire limbs instead of the torso bot also making the thighs, which is why I am thinking they would be leader class. Or Hasbro can copy how 3P have been doing it. I don't own any and have not watched too many as I have no interest in most 3P figures.

    Wouldn't have to. You'd model each combiner team independently. If the concern is tooling costs, four have a built in G2 repaint...and one can be repainted as an RiD2k reference.

    I heard the Stunticons are cars, except Motormaster.

    I've been away a few days and lost track. We going on about MM being commander class? Did we get more info on that?

    I would assume the trailer will be part MM and part combiner bits. I don't it it will become a shell to form Menasor. I may be wrong, were we told it will??

    This is awesome, so this is a complete combiner and all new :) 

    I dunno if you reply to things but. Will all four cars be unique molds or are we returning to the CW repaint days?

    Probably not "Skelton style combiner", but like all combiners he can have one of those torso or leg pieces that some combiners have for help with stability.

    They may just be holding her off to prioritize the 84-86 cast then do some post-G1 stuff
    Just to drop my two cents. Someone said it was just Motormaster and no stunticons which possibly hints he's a pre-tool for something else. If so it's obviously an Optimus with a base mode but which version?

    The only Prime who's cab turns into his legs is RID Prime. That would be awesome

    This is the aspect of "muh leaks bad" that I just don't get. I'm privileged enough to be a good spot financially - but not everyone can drop 500 bones at a time for fan friday reveals. Who cares if something gets revealed early? If you hate "leak culture" so much just ignore it.

    Why are we getting a new Motormaster? We already got the Stunticons in Combiner Wars. Not necessary.

    Give us MONSTRUCTOR! DINOKING! RAIDEN!

    I imagine that whatever style they do Menasor in, they do the other Scramble City combiners in. There's no way they abandon the Combiner Wars gimmick now that they've established it - it's an important gimmick to the brand.

    A Commander Motormaster as stated by a couple other posters already could just be a dense "Voyager"-sized figure with intricate details and articulation with fully articulated combiner hands and feet, a sword, a gun, and blast effects. And the other combiner leaders can have a similar treatment. That way, the gimmick can be retained, the other combiner members can allocate HFG budget to better quality, and combiner mode scale with the rest of the CW combiners remains.
