    Personally I’d rather see coneheads and slipstream over repeats of the rainmakers and redwing

    @Awesomepow 's opinion is just as valid as yours. Don't state your opinion as if it should happen instead of theirs.

    It shouldn't be.

    Slapdash, sure I can see as a Mirage repaint.

    Sureshot should get his own mould, that again, can be reused on Joyride and Ruckus. It makes financial sense and character sense.

    Doesn't seem like it should be possible, but if it somehow transforms into this:

    Well, fuck it, I'll buy it just for the novelty factor.

    I honestly think that would be super cool. Even if the transformation was a bit corkscrewy and twisty-turny, I'd be down. I just want the cartoon accurate bulb look with the right faces though.

    It may seem like a dumb idea, but I'd really like it if Hasbro put out some model/playsets of some of the spaceships (Ark, Nemesis, Autobot Shuttle, Quintesson ship, etc.) in Pulse, similar to Unicron but smaller.

    Why would they give a z-list character that has close to zero repaint potential his own mold when they don't need to?
    We know they can turn Wheeljack into a Sunstreaker that looks the part to a T.
    There's nothing an original mold would do better.

    Then I would want Clouder in toy colors...

    With a Cybertron emblem of course. :)

    I don't feel the need for a Clouder redeco, but I had hoped for Buster and Hydra, only for the purpose of finishing the Starscream combiner.

    I thought that Joyride would share a mold with a new getaway - the reason I'm thinking that is because a) the chest rotates and the back rotates down so its a pretty similar transformation, but to be honest it could equally be used for sureshot.

    I would prefer a new Darkwing and dreadwind - more voyager sized. I thought the POTP Darkwing was brilliant, but that they cheaped out on dreadwind by not doing a new mold and using a faux plane cockpit chest.

    Big agree here. The classic trio is obvious, but then we need Coneheads, a Slipstream retool, and the welcoming committee or Sunstorm by himself at the bare minimum.

    obviously:
    Cliffjumper==>runamuck
    Wheeljack==>sunstreaker
    Hoist==>trailbreaker

    Maybe,
    Astrotrain==>doubledealer

    All retool/repaints that don't bother me the slightest, nice ideas

    and guess astro squad will be two battlemasters that combine into a white spaceshuttle

    I think with the brand new Apeface, we all knew that a new Snapdragon toy was only a matter of time. Trailbreaker was also something I think we all expected as soon as we saw Hoist. I got really excited when I saw Rung, hoping it was a new, larger figure, until I saw that it was yet another Battlemaster reissue. Nuts!

    I’m looking forward to seeing a new Doubledealer mold (I’ve always loved faction switchers) and I’m quite curious about that Quintesson. Hmmm.

    Don’t kill me, but would a doubledealer into deathsaurus retool be a terrible idea? So long as doubledealer isn’t a voyager with extra crap slapped all over it to make it a leader.

    Amen. Like a normal coloured Starscream and Thundercracker & Skywarp there's multiple Decepticon uses of the CW/POTP Jet limbs that haven't been done a left easy money lying unclaimed by Hasbro.

    I mean a straight black & purple repaint of Superion as Destron Sixwing? How hard could it be??
