    Awesome if true! Honestly I'll be happy if we even get half of all this. I don't mind reveals to be spread out just like I enjoy wave releases to be spread out. I'm of course most excited to see more constructicons and I really really hope we see a new fallen or sentinel prime!

    It's always fun when that happens, especially if you fully paid for it months before, forgot about it, and it just shows up!

    The Fallen IMO has better shots at being a Leader than a Voyager. His original figure was already as tall than Leader class Blackout and Megatron, and to match his on-screen portrayal he'd need to be taller. Perhaps as a large Leader like Grimlock and Jetfire.

    Sentinel has better shots as a Voyager. Given his varying sizes in DOTM Hasbro has three choices:
    1. They release Sentinel as a small, barely bigger than SS Optimus mold Voyager Class with all his weapons (rust gun, blade, shield, maybe a Pillar).
    2. They release Sentinel as a large, SS Megatron sized Voyager Class with only his essential weapons (blade and shield)
    3. They release the Sentinel from point 2 but with all the weapons from point 1 under the Leader price-tag to make up for all the plastic.

    Leader class would definitely be fine with me, in fact I’d prefer it. I just know that Hasbro is weird with their class choices sometimes and didn’t wanna get my hopes up too high.

    I mean, TF2007 Megatron could’ve been a leader class given the size of his jet mode, and yet they still made him a voyager, which was a mistake imo

    I think 2007 Megatron didn't have enough "goodies" to warrant being a Leader.

    For example, DOTM Megs had Igor, a gun, a complex rusted/faded paint job and a much larger vehicle mode. Meanwhile Shockwave came with three minifigures - Wheelie, Brains, and a NEST guy, as well as a film accurate Grimlock-style paint scheme.

    I can almost ensure had Megatron come with Frenzy and silver rusted paint he'd most definitely be a Leader Class.

    Damn, this all sounds great. I hope Hound and Blitzwing are the other two voyagers!

    These days? It’s been like that since I entered the hobby :lol 
    Hell I got early prototypes of ROTF leader Optimus and HFTD Starscream off eBay before mass retail for a decent chunk higher than normal price back in the day. Was it a dumb decision in hindsight? Yes. In the moment? Not at all, because those molds are awesome.

    Yeah, I think the Fallen should be a leader class. His alt mode was huge as well as his robot mode. If he was a leader class, he still wouldn't scale correctly but he'd be close compared to the others in SS. I'd like Sentinel to be a voyager about the size of SS32/SS44 Optimus. Maybe slightly larger. I wouldn't want him to be like DOTM Megatron because he'd be quite chunky and big. Sentinel had a body like Optimus, so it'd make sense if they made him a voyager about the size of the previous SS Optimus figures.

    Ksi boss for 19 quid delivered? Be rude not to. I'll give him a chain and call him nitro since my actual nitro has been kidnapped by thunderwing.

    At some point, i need to get a ss05 for those sweet blades. And i can open ss44 tomorrow. Looking forward to checking out that trailer pack and flight tech.

    It's the easiest cast to build due to the size, and the teams always seemed to me to be the most coherent. Pretty much every other movie just vomits characters onto the screen and calls it a day.

    Smallest cast, everyone has their memorable moment to shine where othe films just had hi and die appearances and for me at least, it's the first one. The original. It has the strongest memories of being wowed in the cinema. Same reason folks want complete ark crew but are less concerned about a full series 2 roster for g1.
