    Both are great….but something about the conehead retool just makes Thrust a much better figure. (IMO). :cool:

    I am excited for next year. Def. Want Hot Rod and the Fallen. Voyager Galvatron worries me, for such a complex transformation and mass, i hope they do him right.

    Fallen?
    Fallen?
    Fallen?!

    I'm not currently a movie collector (I've chosen the dark path of collecting G1 inspired figures), but seeing that we will be getting THE FALLEN makes me inmensily happy. Also Crosshairs and Hot Rod? It's about time.

    Too bad that once again we will need to wait for the likes of AoE Hound and Hatchet, but I get why they have been postponed.

    So, at the end of next year, all that will be left for the "original trilogy" for regular-sized characters will be:

    ROTF:
    - Demolishor (mold already exists)
    - Skids and Mudflap (may simply not happen)

    DOTM:
    - Que
    - Hatchet (mentioned in a bio)
    - Devcon (pipedream)

    Not bad!

    Too many figures based on the Cybertron scenes from the Bumblebee movie.

    It irks me that they’re based off rushed last minute retooled models.

    Would much rather they wait for more refined designs in sequels.

    Honestly I’m ok with them waiting to do the RoTB designs I’m sure they’ll be cool but we don’t want another Helicopter Dropkick on our hands right?

    I presume Breakaway must becoming in 2023 then, and Warpath if Breakaway does well?

    Would be nice to see other off-screen characters. I hope NEST Bumblebee was just the start.

    I've legit be okay if they used the AOE version as the base and compressed the backpack more, like add another hinge or fold it into the body or something.

    Hey gang, making a master list of remaining characters from the Bayverse for Studio Series. I kept it relatively topline, if you think I should go deeper (i.e., guys like Canopy and Trench) let me know! Also let me know if I'm missing anyone.

    I certainly don't think we will (or even should) get all of these, like AOE Junkheap, but I put them on here. Didn't include small characters who would not come as their own figure (also, DOTM Ironhide is a stretch, but whatever). Size classes are rough estimates. Lastly, if a character / design got a release in Studio Series, it's counting as their SS version (like TLK Drift, TLK Bee, Cogman). If it didn't, it's still fair game, although certainly in some cases a TLK mold reuse may be warranted.

    While it is a fine mold, i would rather have a newer one due to the older ones' weird hips, shallow sculpt in places, and that crap backpack. I think Hasbro needs to realize that if they bump him up to leader price no one will complain if he is good.

    crosshair should be taken off the list, as that one is rumored to be coming with the new set of stuff

    The 09 fallen still holds up, but if the new one has a better sculpt amd mass, staff he can hold properly and a matrix, then yeah. Yeah I'd get him.

    Also sideways! And hot rod as i said earlier. Possibly galvatron, depending on what he looks like. I gave the aoe one a total paint overhaul and it looks the tits so ss galvy needs to be great.

    Then just hatchet and ny movie guys are finished.

    Planning a post later where I break down what parts would need to be remolded on SS-74 for DOTM Bee.
