    Found listings in the walmart systems for some deluxe protectobots as well as sunstreaker, ironhide, prowl, and mirage. That deluxe file is really balooning up as it includes figures from FOC wave 1 through now... Apologies for blurriness. still readable I think...

    DID SOMEONE SAY PROWL AND IRONHIDE!? Mirage is alright I guess....and Sunstreaker, idk what design they would use...I'm not fully caught up on comics but Sunstreaker hasn't exactly changed designs much since his last toy if I'm correct

    Fingers crossed for a new, better looking Ironhide! I'd totally buy a Mirage repaint of Drag Strip too.

    Mirage, Jazz, Windcharger, And Sideswipe formed the Fakisor.

    No, the last we saw him was in one the last issues of Dark Cybertron and he still used his Skinny Classics body.

    Sideswipe has upgraded to a bulky G1 body though.

    I hate to say it but I hope they don't combine, I want REAL autobots!
    I also hate to say this but I'm fine with just Menasor, Superion, Defensor and Devastator.

    Excellent! So, Mirage just has to be a Dragstrip repaint, Sunstreaker probably a Breakdown repaint. Ironhide? I'd guess a red repaint of the Wildrider replacement guy whose name eludes me atm, although I don't think it's a great fit myself.

    That just leaves Prowl, and I can't really see any of the Stunticon moulds working for him, so fingers crossed for an original mould.

    Close, but no cygar. It was Mirage, Sideswipe, Jazz, and Windcharger

    So Sunstreaker is almost certainly a retool (head) of Breakdown. I might get it, seeing as the Henkei toy is pretty expensive. If Prowl is good enough, I might get him as well.

    I'm imagining Combiner Wars Stunticon redecos. Mirage from Dragstrip, Sunstreaker from Breakdown, Prowl from Dead End, and Ironhide from Off-Road; all intended to combine with Voyager Prime.

    Not quite a Masquerade homage, as that featured Jazz, Sideswipe and Windcharger along with Mirage and Prime. But there you go.

    yeah almost:

    jazz= dead end. mirage= drag strip. sideswipe= breakdown. windcharger= wildrider. prime= motormaster.

    this seems to make sense as prime is a center combiner piece. so if that is the case, these names would be a repaint/remold. either ways, if true, great to hear!

    Great idea and great homage to the Masquerade episode.

    Makes sense that Jazz and Sideswipe were not included since they received recent toys in the form of WFC. Legends Windcharger will form the chest of the fake Menasor.

    Prowl, Ironhide, and Sunstreaker need some new representation, so all is good.

    No offense, but those molds don't do those characters justice.

    If by "the same guys" you mean "Mirage"...

    Because the Autobots who doubled for the Stunticons in "Masquerade" were Jazz (Dead End), Sideswipe (Breakdown), Windcharger (Wildrider), Mirage (Drag Strip) and Optimus Prime (Motormaster).

    So we just need Jazz.

    It doesn't mean NOT Prowlistator either. If the Titan Devvy rumor is true, there's a possibility that Prowl could still be an optional component.

    If the Ironhide, Sunstreaker, and Mirage end up being repaints of the stunticons, I wouldn't be surprised if the three deluxe aerialbot jets are repainted into the decepticon coneheads.

    Last I saw, the new Prowl was going to have a Lambo-police altmode. Take it for what you will.

    Nice. But I think I will stick with the Classics Generation figures from 2006 and 2008.
