    Voyager huh?
    I hope there's enough room in that box for the sword, shield and gun.
    Still I'm happy that we are finally getting Sentinel!

    Running list of additional items DNA Design or Dr. Wu should cover:
    - 2007 Megatron fusion cannon
    - DOTM Soundwave blasters
    - Mixmaster's cannon barrel
    - Probably at least one of Sentinel Prime's weapons
    - Optimus weapons (hooks, his rifle from DOTM)

    I'm pretty sure he'll only come with the swords and shield. They're being very selective with the weapons these toys come with, whenever they have multiple weapons.

    Good examples would be Prime, Ratchet, Lockdown, Starscream, and I'm sure there's some others in there.

    The already existing TLK mold is pretty good and fits the scale of SS pretty well. I'm not sure how they could improve on him but okay, I guess. Didn't we think the same when ROTF came out?

    I see Daytrader being closer to the Deluxe Class than with Voyagers. He was only barely as tall as Drift, and despire having quite a lot of bulk to him considering the vehicle he turned into is still nowhere near the likes of Ironhide, Brawl, and Rampage.

    Steelbane and Infernocus could also use new Voyagers.. or rather, just Voyagers. Considering they never had any in the first place.

    Combining Infernocons the size of Brawl/Rampage and non-Dragonstorm forming Knights modeled after Steelbane the size ot Starscream.

    In all, despite TLK's shitfire of a film they have loads of designs and figures Hasbro could create to make up for that time they neglected them in favour of a 10-second CGI rehash from 2011.

    i’m guessing you have to take the front of the cab completely off to transform him into the head. also what happened to the bright green eyes from other shots?

    Any case, AOE/TLK Optimus, AOE Rusty Optimus, Hound, Galvatron, Daytrader, Onslaught, Blitzwing, TLK Megatron. You think they can make it? 5 of them may as well be rereleases.

    Hypothetically, Hasbro could make a second "Final Battle Sentinel Prime" with the Rust Cannon and an Helmet-less Head, maybe some battle damage paint.
    Having to buy another figure for the cannon is sort of annoying, but so is having to buy DOTM Ratchet for the gun or ROTF Optimus for the swords. I could see them doing it.

    TLK Optimus only needs a more premium deco to fit into SS. He already fits into SS well enough, better perhaps than the actual figure too.

    AOE Optimus has mold reuse potential. His base mold was as close to perfect as a mainline toy could get, though I'd prefer a new tooling. I can understand the TLK mold reuses, but I hope SS doesn't resort to going past that.

    Hound and TLK Megatron are the same as TLK OP.

    Galvatron definitely needs an update. I like his sculpt, but his engineering is horrendously lazy even with the physical impossibility of his CGI model taken into account. If Stinger, a 5-inch Deluxe could convert from a Pagani to a robot with no Pagani and no backpack, why can't a full sized Voyager? Engineering has advanced in 5 years, it's time to - as Joshua Joyce would say - show the world what an upgrade looks like.

    This is great news. He honestly had a really great design in DoTM. If he doesn’t come with his sword and shield, I’ll be pretty upset since those were his most iconic weapons. But if this guy was our surprise Voyager that the other sources were talking about, can’t wait to see him this Friday hopefully with the rest of the leaked stuff.
    Due to their controversy, I doubt we’ll be seeing them again. Hopefully we get to see Jolt at the very least.

    I can't wait to get my Jazz!! :cry 

    On a side note, nice display!!
    We still got the HA twins and even the crappy DOTM molds that were released after the all the complaints, so I'm sure we'll see them again.

    Kind of weird not watching TonTon do a review of an upcoming figure. This video has only reenforced my decision to buy Shockwave. I’m not a big fan of the tank (I feel the DOTM voyager tank mode looked more coherent) but that robot mode is so good, is could be passed off as a model kit.
