    Yeah this is why I don't blink an eye at paying 20 dollars for Siege deluxes. I've been doing that since Titans Return...
    TLK Cogman never saw release here.
    Crosshairs? There was a time when we were swimming with so many TLK Drifts, and for some reason right now there's an influx of TLK Hounds...

    FanExpo Toronto was where we got the Wave 5 SS reveals, so maybe it will be the same this year.

    It’s been what... six months since new SS figures were revealed? Has Car Dropkick even hit retail in the U.S.? I was starting to wonder if we would get any more SS figures besides the Constructicons.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a 2007 Camaro Bee, because scale is a thing. And it’s probably a long shot, but I would really like a Deep Desert Brawl.

    I know In-Demand toys has the wave seven deluxes (Dropkick, Drift, Hightower) listed as being due in stock by the end of the month, so hopefully by the first week of August they'll start trickling out into stores

    I kind of like not knowing what's coming at the moment. The last few years, a lot of conventions have been spoiled by leaks and the like, so by the time stuff is officially revealed the hype has died down a bit. Here's hoping SDCC gives us some really out there and surprising reveals. Constructicons are to be expected, but which Constructicons is the fun part

    Personally I'm really hoping we see at lease one of the following;
    • Deluxe Hot Rod
    • Deluxe Bumblebee (AOE - High Octane)
    • Deluxe Soundwave (DOTM)
    • Voyager/Leader Sentinel Prime
    • Voyager/Leader Shockwave
    No rhyme or reason for this list, other than that it's full of characters/designs I'd love to see brought to life in Studio Series

    I could see them possibly releasing a Deep Desert-esque repaint under a new name like Armorhide or Tankor, passing it off as a background character in Revenge of the Fallen or Dark of the Moon. A bit like they did with Shadow Raider and Thundercracker. Releases like that would make for good wave fillers too when obviously not everything can be new molds or repaints

    I'm sure we'll see something at SDCC. It has been ages since new SS figures were revealed. I have a feeling that there will be a few surprises because they've been really quiet. We'll find out soon. We just have to be patient.

    I'm hoping to see something cool at SDCC. I really don't care about siege but I'm glad it's making other people happy.

    Technically Deep Desert Brawl WAS a background character in DOTM

    It'd be neat if they retooled a hypothetical Deep Deep Dish Pizza into a stock, unmodified M1 Abrams, to differentiate the two a bit. Gotta love the Abrams.

    Same. I think the TLK Voyager would be just fine for studio series in terms of scale and accuracy. Only real improvements would be the head and a paintjob closer to the Movie the Beat Leader class.

    I would lower my expectations for the next reveals, since Devastator seems to be a big project I wouldn't be surprised if the next couple of waves are a bunch of repaints. It already happened, I'm pretty sure it will happen again

    Dangit... I just realized TLK Megs has been a focal point but a few pages back we've also been hoping for a 2007 version for the SS line... Must lower my expectations...

    Looking for suggestions on good places online to look for SS and DNA kits for them other than Amazon and BBTS. Any others you guys/ girls would suggest?

    I remember seeing the 2007 movie when I was a wee little boy. And if that thing popped up on screen I’d just be like, “cool mom!”.
