    The core class is one of my favorite sub lines so I'm in for whatever is released going forward in the size class.

    I can see us getting a tc along with skywarp and maybe acid storm.

    I am in the minority but the old legends line now core was my favorite sub line.

    I don't mind this as long as it's not in that orange '01 color scheme. Jhiaxus's design was basically a seeker on steroids, so using Armada Starscream just makes sense.

    Rumors of a new Menasor have actually been mentioned around these forums for quite a while now, but this looks to be the first time we've seen actual listings. IIRC it's supposed to be a spread out release like SS Devastator, and uses a Commander Class Motormaster.

    Looks like it was a Halloween theme if you look in the background.

    I wonder if the new Stunticon figures will still be Scramble City-style, where they could be arms or legs.

    Hey...I really liked that concept! I thought it was a scale-relevant updated take on a previously cringey concept. The way Masterforce handled Pretenders (scale-wise) made much more sense.

    US lore? Not a bit.

    Aside from being Core class, this is honestly exactly how I'd want modern Pretender updates to work, with shell-inspired robot modes and inner robot-inspired vehicle modes, so I'm looking forward to seeing it. Here's hoping they give us Voyager or Leader versions of Bludgeon and Thunderwing in the same style later on.

    RE: Jhiaxus:
    Given that we’ve seen him in an Armada Starscream body in the old and now current IDW continuities and how I never got the T30 deluxe anyway, I’m fine with him being a mold-mate with the Voyager Armada Starscream.

    (Though if we're talking ideal scenarios, I would want a scenario where we can have both orange Jhiaxus as a retail release and G2 colors-Jhiaxus in the Selects line.)

    RE: Stunticons:
    @Apollux: since we’re getting word of a Menasor redo, are they going to bring back the combiner pegs from Combiner Wars or there isn’t enough info for a solid response?

    At Core Class size? Uh. I'd all caps wish for something possible instead.

    I thought we were past using the original toys as points of reference in terms of how big newer toys of them should be. Pretenders were just as big as other regular Transformers in almost every one of their fictional appearances.

    I could have sworn one of the leakers said he isn't, but there IS an unnamed repaint/remold that @Apollux is excited for
