    That would kill two birds in one stone.
    We get to keep the legends size and we get more duocons.
    It's win-win.

    I would actually say the death of TRU and the previous Titans hitting Ollie's clearance are Both contributing factors.
    so yeah, unless a 4th Titan is teased at SDCC i could see the Titan class being relegated to Haslab if not outright cancelled. which is a damn shame because that's gonna leave a lot of people without Omega Supreme or Scorponok options for their chug shelves.
    I am especially disappointed because I was hoping we'd start getting more obscure big dudes after the obvious ones.
    I really wanted Titan class toys for Grand Mal Megatron, Majin Zarak, and Chela.

    Haslab is the best place for Titan class, there's no risk to them and they could use a stretch goal style system to improve the product if take up is particularly high.
    They just need to remember there's a whole world out there and they aren't going to take kindly to being excluded.

    I'm pretty certain Battlemasters are titanmaster pricepoint toys, esp, because we'll probably be seeing Targetmasters so it'll be a titanmaster figure and some weapon accessory for a larger bot. I think we WILL be getting two packs, but I think that will be the Micromasters pricepoint, since Micromasters were always gangmolded in pairs, We might even see Greasepit and Ironworks or hothouse and airwave. these will occupy the legends pricepoint. It might be shared with single legends scale figures as well, I think battletrap is a preview of an imminent Multiforce, so there's a chunk of legends still to come. Whether two legends fit within the budget for a Deluxe I dunno, but it's clear that Battletrap is Deluxe scale, and we could see future doucons/bots packed at the deluxe PP. probably not in this chapter though.

    Are Studio Series Wave 3 and 4 still coming out this year, the one with Optimus, Starscream, Ironhide and Bonecrusher?

    I think we should be expecting MPM ROTF Megatron and Starscream next year and then hopefully Ratchet and Jazz. Aside from these characters, there aren't too many other Bayverse characters that Takara Tomy would consider making an MPM. Soundwave as a carbot might be okay, very similar to Barricade.

    For the rest of the Studio Series, I would expect Sideswipe, Dino, Fallen?, Sentinel Prime, Tanker Megatron, Dinobots, Soundwave, Shockwave and maybe the Dreads and the Arcee bikebots. Of course, from AOE/TLK, we still need an Onslaught.

    From TF2 onwards, there really weren't any new memorable Decepticons aside from Soundwave and Shockwave. Even the Autobots only had Sideswipe and Dino. The cast from TF1 still reigns surpreme. AOE/TLK hardly had any worthy Decepticons. The Bayverse films made use of too many cannon fodder designs for the bad guys.

    Yes wave 3 - Ironhide and wave 4 Starscream are both still due out this year. Im unclear if optimus and bonecrusher are mixed in to waves 3 and 4 or are a 5th wave I'm thinking the latter.

    As well as 5 to 6 more deluxe figures and a 3rd leader as well this year.

    2019 however I believe has its own set different from this year. 11 deluxe , 6 voyagers and 3 leaders

    I think Battletrap's more of a short Deluxe.

    On the subject of Studio Series, we got listings for upcoming Studio Series toys, courtesy of Target:

    New Listings at Target for Transformers Studio Series

    I wonder if the ones like Ratchet and Brawl will be redecos or redos (since Ratchet has some of that kibble sticking out of him and Brawl's main turret kind of ends up in a...embarrassing spot).

    Actually none of these are as "new" as seibertron stated a list created by Nevermore cataloged these already.

    Stryker - bumblebee

    Fox - is Tf2 Megatron although the Tf2 is absent from this listing

    Blue light - is also codenamed unknown hero at different stores believe

    Mercenary - is also codenamed raider at different stores I believe

    Brawl and jazz are just the subject of typos

    Ironhide - is a wave 3 Voyager we knew that already

    A Tf3 repaint of ratchet has been rumored and more or less confirmed.

    Just thinking about those future Studio Series figures after wave 4 and Leader wave 2.

    Studio Series
    • SS Deluxe: 11 Characters across 4 Waves
    • SS Voyager: 6 Characters across 4 Waves
    • SS Leader: 3 Characters across 2 Waves
    So many characters to think of from Movie 1 to AOE. Hard to imagine what they could be.

    IMO best guesses are The Fallen, Sentinel Prime and Grindor. The first two were important characters in the original trilogy, and the late would make the reuse of Blackout mold.

    As long as I get Sideswipe, Soundwave, Barricade and Shockwave, I'm fine. But I would like to know what's going to happen to the Voyagers and Leaders.

    I really hope we get the turbomasters and predators. I still thinks stalker could work as a remold/repaint of impactor. I'm also really hoping for a deluxe boss

    SDCC will be packed with Cyberverse and The Bumblebee Movie merch. Hascon would be the soonest that we would get some hard information, if at all.

    Well that's odd, they go through the trouble of setting up a convention and there going to skip a year? They must be Rebooting everything for 2020.

    I guess we won't hear anything till 2019, at NY Toy Fair.

    Sdcc 2018 isnt going to be just cyberverse and Bumblebee Movie Product although it the latter will be the main staple. Studio series and Wfc will probably be shown as well to an extent seeing as how Hasbro will also be at nycc at the beginning of October weeks before bumblebee movie products hit the streets.

    So no there's nothing saying we have to wait for new york toy fair next year there's still a good chance for some reveals between now and October.
