    Unforuntately I do at times and it's terrible so I'm happy that you don't.
    It's not a rumor it was basically confirmed by a reliable leaker that when the film was coming out in 2022, there was gonna be no SS ROTB stuff only a Deluxe sublline in the ROTB toyline. Which ironically had a ROTB Bee, WJ, Airazor also Mirage, and Nightbird so I wonder are those figures either scrapped or pulled over here? Hopeuflly if so they are retooled/changed since the reason it was no ROTB SS in 2022 is so they would be based on the final designs.
    Damn right, I would love if we got 9 Voyagers like Legacy for 2023 SS.

    Isn't trypticon a triple changer too? That might be more than the Titan budget. But i would welcome it!

    I don't care how I get it, pls just give me a Prime Optimus with a decent Starsaber and accurate looking Prime figures. I'm happy with that.

    Technically no, the nemesis became his new mold mode (and permanent mode) so if they do him i’d be the nemesis most likely.
    APC’s KO FE Prime has you covered there, and I’d probably take both a SS and Legacy G1ified Prime Optimus.

    Yeah, but I want the official Hasbro ones ( no offense to KO). If there is no other option in the near future, i think i will have to too turn to KO.

    I hear what you're saying. Also, I kinda feel the studio series have been "diluted" now with going with video games, but then I guess I understand the "Studio" could mean movie companies AND video game companies that had a chance with the license.

    It’s interesting, because I think the addition of new continuities (including video games) follows a trend that’s been going on for a while with SS.

    Following the 2007 cast’s completion, we got a focus on 86. With Bumblebee’s cast nearly being finished, there’s Rise of the Beasts next year to replace it. It’s the same for the RotF and DotM rosters approaching completion, because we’re now starting to see a focus towards AoE and TLK figures in the latter half of this year to replace that.

    So, it seems they’ll be dedicating these next few years to finishing of Dark of the Moon, Age of Extinction, and The Last Knight, cast in conjunction with bringing on new rosters/casts to give focus to after those movies are done (Rise of the Beasts, War for Cybertron, perhaps even the Expanded Universe for the Bay films). 86 kind of sits in a weird place because its cast is split between mainline and Studio Series, but the same thing applies to it as well.

    There is definitely a feeling that they're trying to slow down on finishing the Bay Films/Spinning off, I think it's a mix of not wanting to finish the cast so fast (we know some collectors move on from a line when they get everything they wanted) and also a mix of the fact that the number of major characters they haven't done yet is decreasing and at a point we'd be looking at toys of "random background decepticon that died in 2 seconds and we only know exists because someone took a screenshot of his split second appearance"

    Yes but the first form was a satellite so not quite as visually stunning as his bot or Nemesis mode.

    I still like the idea of the OG Nemesis turning in to the Giant Purple Griffin. But having both ships as Titan Class would be cool regardless.

    I miss the old days when many of us where excited about this kind of announcements, that was the preCHPS era but in current cheap hollow plastic syndrome era things are different.

    Hasbro should show improvements in their plastic quality, starting with the yellowing plastic issue even out of the box before many of us think about buying Hasbro Transformers again.

    We need to fill that void, that addition, that plastic crack addition.

    Anybody looking at some of these leaks thinking there might be a remaster of WFC/FOC coming out? Wouldn't mind a not crappy version of FOC Bruticus that doesn't cost $400

    If so it would mean I can finally play the games so I hope so. But if there is then they need to create a new deal with Activison.

    Yes. I never played either, what a shame. I would be so excited.

    I would also care to play Devastation again.

    Not entirely out of the realm of possibility, Hasbro currently has no partnerships for console and pc, just one with DeNA for mobile, and Activision is starting to get desperate for any good PR they can get before Microsoft fully absorbs them. Slim, but not unlikely, and would help explain why the video game designs are randomly popping up in the movie line, and not Legacy.

    After recently watching a review of T30 Trailcutter, hollowness has been present for at least a decade.
