    Hope the Energon Monsters are another -izer , that are raw energon crystals and rock formations. So basically I want gem lords from rock lords back.

    I'm already in for Cosmos (maybe 2, he's my favorite character), but I would be in for a blue repaint as well.

    Dumb off topic question, but why is Pathfinder blue? I've been looking into Gobots a bit, & noticed Pathfinder is black & silver; is there a reason they went with the blue? Been meaning to ask that for a bit, but can't find a Gobots appreciation thread anywhere on here...

    Pathfinder is blue because that colour scheme is based off an exclusive G1 repaint of Cosmos, which was blue.

    Legal reasons. Machine Robo is owned by Namco Bandai.

    I hope one of the Titans for Legacy is a transforming Nemesis that isn’t based off Trypticon. A Decepticon counterpart to the Ark so to speak.

    Are we sure that is Optimus Prime in that picture? I don't think it is labelled enough to be 100% sure.

    Ah, I figured it had something to do with that. Bit of a shame, because a black & silver Cosmos would be pretty cool.

    But I did see that the blue Cosmos has precedent, as that color (along with some other minibots) showed up in a Japanese catalog:

    Cool stuff!

    I got an idea of a Nemesis that turns into a giant dragon due to the elongated shape of the ship. Have the neck extend like Skylynx and the base of the ship unfolds into wings and the body. I really want this to happen.

    Have it's robot mode be based on the giant purple griffin robot the Decepticons made in the G1 cartoon.

    It's subtle. Look for the minute visual cues, like G2 Megatron.

    Did the original Megatron toy come with a giant sword or was it only the prototype?

    My understanding is that only the original Takara release did.

    Do we know what happened to Swoop? I remember hearing he was supposed to be a Voyager and come out in late 2021 and now I am not seeing him in next year's list either?

    Being drip fed one Dinobot a year is killing me! I need 2 next year!

    The question is, what useless accesory will be included with Sludge and what signature accesory is goin to be taken out, i.e. the sword or the blaster.

    Don't get me wrong, I hate store exclusives. But... considering Target's love for Buzzworthy 2-packs and 4-packs, maybe we could get a Pathfinder redeco + rehead of the new Cosmos mold along with other Gobots that Hasbro would want to slip into canon?

    With Bandai's Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos being localized for U.S. & Western audiences for a 2022 DVD/BluRay release, and maybe more to follow, Hasbro might be incentivized to further strengthen their Gobots IP and name rights with more toy releases.

    Hopefully instead they just give us 3 swords. (one for him, Slug and Grimlock) Which would undoubtedly be cheaper.
