    It would be awesome if this led the way to getting updated Aquaspeeders and Stormtroopers.

    Take a shot every time someone says 'these will be the new hero mashers' despite JT saying that there are listings for a separate thing that is actually new hero mashers.

    I just had an idea and it's going to sound silly. What if they are alt mode swaps with different characters. Jet Megatron, beetle hotrod etc.

    I dunno what these are, but I’m just happy to see Clench on the list.

    My guess? One transforming toy with parts that can be customized to be either of the two robots. Hence the shared alt-modes.

    ZacWilliam but who knows.

    If I had to guess, these are probably just a rehash of the hero mashers concept. However, I'm hoping they're decent enough to stand in in chug, as I see some names there I'd love to have in my collection.

    So Clench is definitely gonna be a straight repaint of Magnus, super weird seeing them pull that name. Wonder if this'll be like the junkion gimmick but a lot more simple and toyetic?

    Really curious what this will be. Gimmick toys outside of the current cartoon or movie haven’t really been a thing for a while, so curious to see how they’ll fit into the brand.

    Using the name at least puts him on Hasbro's radar again.

    My guess as to what this gimmick line is going to be:

    Each figure/set includes one core skeleton body and a set of parts to turn the skeleton into another character which is fully transformable.
    Think of it as being similar to the 2007 movie's Trans-Scanning Transformers toyline; where you had a core skeleton and a set of parts to turn Prime into a fully transformable protoform robot or an Earth truck robot.

    Alternatively, it could potentially be similar to the old Construct-Bots toyline, but maybe this time the figures will have more detailed altmodes and feel less Bionicle-ish.

    My thinking is Hero Mashers meets modular Transformers.

    Maybe? Probably not? Does it matter? I kinda like they have an opportunity to do something different here. Regardless of where it fits in the line.

    What? You think all black cats look the same? /s

    What an odd toyline. Does this mean we're finally getting a figure of Gilthor?
